QuoteI just wanted to give a heads up to some recent issues that we are seeing across Office Deployment. Security Fixes MS13-072 and MS13-073 MS13-074Two security updates released yesterday MS13-072, MS13-073 and MS13-074, These are installing fine but if you scan the machine again for updates, show up again and again and again. Currently there is no fix available for these other than to say that the update is applied but it is not getting properly detected. The product group is aware of the issues and are working on it.We appreciate your patience and understand on this.Thank you.
QuoteLately between MS and Nvidia not sure whats going on .
Quoteintel has big leg up here and hopefully they won't drop the ball increasing there HD graphics with next/newer chips .
QuoteThe second extension, InstantAccess is simply Intel's implementation of zero copy. Although Intel's processor graphics have supported unified memory for a while (CPU + GPU share the same physical memory), the two processors don't get direct access to each others memory space. Instead, if the GPU needs to work on something the CPU has in memory, it needs to make its own copy of it first. The copy process is time consuming and wasteful. As we march towards true heterogeneous computing, we need ways of allowing both processors to work on the same data in memory. With InstantAccess, Intel's graphics driver can deliver a pointer to a location in GPU memory that the CPU can then access directly. The CPU can work on that GPU address without a copy and then release it back to the GPU. AMD introduced support for something similar back with Llano.

QuoteAssume that you have a Windows 8.1-based device that is connected to an authenticated proxy. In this situation, Windows Location Provider fails the geolocation lookup for IP addresses or Wi-Fi location sources. Therefore, no location information is available for the device unless it has GPS. For example, the Bing Maps app cannot place your location on a map, and the Bing Weather app cannot determine your city.
QuoteAssume that a Windows 8.1-based computer has the fast startup feature enabled. When you right-click the Start hint and then select the Shut down option to shut down the computer, the shutdown time is longer than when you shut down the computer by using the new Windows UI. Additionally, the system will take much longer to start the next time that you start the computer.CauseWhen you select the Shut down option from the right-click context menu on the Start hint, the system will do a complete shutdown even though the fast startup feature is enabled. However, when you shut down the computer by using the new Windows UI, the system will enter a hybrid sleep state.
QuoteWhen you have a computer that has the High Precision Event Timer (HPET) hardware timer and Windows 8.1 installed, you encounter a 0x9F Stop error from the Usbhub.sys driver.CauseThis issue occurs because both the HPET hardware timer and the hardware itself update certain registers at the same time, and this leads to a race condition.

QuoteConsider the following scenario:â€¢You install an application in Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012.â€¢You upgrade the operating system to Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2.â€¢You start the application by clicking the desktop shortcut. â€¢A Program Compatibility Assistant dialog box appears that indicates that you should reinstall the application.

QuoteThis issue occurs because of a multiple-CPU race condition when you send the video packets at the same time.
QuoteThis issue occurs because when the impersonated user calls SetDefaultPrinter to set a default printer, some registry values may be set in the wrong user profile. These values will be set in the service account's profile rather than in the impersonated user's profile.
Quoteâ€¢You use a remove-dfsnfoldertarget script command together with a -whatif parameter in PowerShell to remove folders from DFS namespace.
QuoteThis issue occurs because the video synchronization object may encounter a race condition upon stopping the video stream under a stress condition. If this happens, the Modern Camera app cannot start a new video session, and therefore it cannot start the video recording operation.

QuoteAfter this update is installed, parents have more flexibility to filter out unsuitable web content and a complete view of the search terms their children use on search engines.Family Safety provides activity reports that show parents the search terms their children enter when they use a search engine. Family Safety also enforces the "safe search" feature by communicating this setting to search engine sites every time a child performs a search. The "safe search" setting causes search engines to filter adult material out of all search results. Currently, some search engine sites require that web browser connections to their sites use encryption, and this impedes our ability to implement these search engine safety features. The Family Safety update can continue to provide these search engine safety features to Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 users.
QuoteIf there is a C:\users\<Username>\OneDrive folder, Explorer tries to check the MSA information. However, if your account is not connected to a MSA, the SkyDriveShell.dll module freezes for 30 seconds during the initialization.Note As soon as you connect your account to a MSA, the C:\Users\<Username>\Onedrive folder is created. Preinstalled Microsoft Office 2013 Service Pack 1 also creates the C:\Users\<Username>\Onedrive folder.
QuoteThis update contains the following improvements:â€¢Apps that you have installed will not be advertised on the live tile.â€¢Microsoft Narrator will not read an invisible error dialog box.â€¢After you install an app, the Install button will not offer to reinstall.â€¢Other reliability improvements.
