QuoteThe issue occurs because a power I/O request packet (IRP) expires while it waits for the power arbiter thread to complete the power request. The power arbiter thread waits to lock a resource that is already obtained by another thread. The resource is not released when the system is turned off, and this causes the power IRP to expire.

I think you know why it is a total 1GB patches.... :P


A bit late for this update, but I want to waiting for MS confirm the issues first, as I am not facing this issues. :)

For Windows 7 - 8.1, if you are facing 0x50 BSoD, Font not rendering/showing, fail to delete font etc, it is caused by this 4 patch, and MS has been removed the download link.
If you wanna stability, you should remove this 4 patch.

If you don't wanna remove the patch, but you wanna at least don't facing 0x50 BSoD, it is on the Known issue 3-Mitigations of the article.
At last, If you don't install any font, you are good to ignore it. ;)


I am not facing any issue but install this fix because of 2 previous IE patches .

I have 2 of those 4 patches


But no issues .
Bitsum QA Engineer


Yup, a lot of Windows user are lucky and not facing any issues so far(based on many comment on news about this issues), only if you installed many fonts as you need it, maybe you will facing it. :)


Bitsum QA Engineer


Look like yesterday, MS released a new patch(KB2993651) without breaking the font and boot, after they pulled the patch(KB2982791).
You should install it as it fix vulnerability. :)

QuoteI already successfully installed the original 2982791 security update and am not experiencing any difficulties. Should I apply the replacement update (2993651) released on August 27, 2014?
Yes. All customers should apply the 2993651 update, which replaces the expired 2982791 update. Customers do not need to uninstall the expired 2982791 update before applying the 2993651 update; however, Microsoft strongly recommends it. Customers who do not remove the expired update will retain a listing for 2982791 under installed updates in Control Panel.


yeh, I just uninstalled the older version and updated to new one .

This is going to be bad if there any side affects for not uninstalling old version , as most will just install it or auto install .

Only a large corporation could write double-talk like: "Customers do not need to uninstall the expired 2982791 update before applying the 2993651 update; however, Microsoft strongly recommends it."

hehe , my bad, I didn't even read the "more info link" on it cause I read so many links about how it best to uninstall old version then apply new .

I normally read the MS info on it but this time it was plastered all over the place .

Honestly why can't the just have it uninstall the old one first .

many times if you do large amount of updates it will only do part and then install rest, so its smart to do that I don't see why this is even a issue .
Bitsum QA Engineer


Ya, and that is why I quote that Q&A, it is very important. ;)

Did you just facing the same issues after install this?
Read this, I tell you I recommend you to uninstall the old patch first! ::)

I think it just replace the whole system files.
Most of the time, the newer patch will replace the old one, compress the replaced file and keep it on the WinSxS folder as a backup, so you are allow to uninstall it.
This is also why your system drive get bigger and bigger every month.

And that's why you better using only Windows Update, as sometimes third-part software that provide similar function like Windows Update forgot to set the old patch as replaced, so they will install the old one, then install the newer one, which causing more download, install and less disk space.
It can be even worst, after you install the newer one without install the old one, they will read the "Installed Update" list and found that this old patch is not there, then trying to patch it.

If you are unlucky that the system fail to detect it is a replaced update, it will install it and bang! 8)


I had no issues with the old one as I use default fonts .

I did uninstall old one manually and then updated the new one through windows updater .

All seems fine , other than I had to do few reboots .
Bitsum QA Engineer


Hmm, I get only 1 reboot and it is installed, maybe it is recreating the font cache I guess.


only one reboot per update , so uninstall old update, needs reboot then install new and reboot .
Bitsum QA Engineer


Ok, so it automatic uninstall the old update?
Because you said that you don't uninstall the old update manually.


no, i'll fix post above, I "did" uninstall first old update manually  .
Bitsum QA Engineer


Ok, anyways, thank for the sharing. :)
But ya, I did hear that some computer need reboot a few times to install update, I wonder did they means after install update, it will reboot itself a few times, or they need to install update, reboot, then install another update that based on/need the installed update.


yeh, I don't know, I could of tried installing new update w/o the reboot but thought that be bad idea .
System reboots in less then 30sec so not long .

Yes, no SSD yet  ;D
Bitsum QA Engineer


Yup, as it is just less than or 10 files(windows 8.1 64 bit - 10, win 7 64 bit - 6) update, it should not be slowing down too much for just patching it. ;)
If it really slowing down, then it is time to defrag your HDD. :)


Look like after they patched KB2993651 which solved boot crash, font issues etc, they release the August 2014 update rollup again.

And, you need to install 2993651 first before install 2975719.
QuoteTo apply this update, follow these steps:
1.Install update 2919355 on the Windows 8.1-based or Windows Server 2012 R2-based computer, and then restart the computer.
2.Install update 2993651 on the computer, and then restart the computer.
This 2975719 also fixed this issues, and nope, it look like it is not named as v2.

You cannot use printers to print files after applying update 2975719 in Windows 8.1
So, here is the story.
If you installed 2975719 and facing BSoD or font issues, MS released 2993651 that replace 2982791, then MS released 2975719 again that need 2993651 without showing much about 2975719 is a fixed version.

To keep it simple, just install all update from Windows Update, then restart, then install again, then restart, then... ::)
A little thing/bug, the Windows update will suck on downloading update, 3%, but it is backing up the old files, you can confirm this by checking the hard disk light or usage. ;)


Bitsum QA Engineer


Yup, Windows 7 don't has rollup patch, it is started since Windows 8. :)


As usual, Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Air are released, but the Adobe Reader is delayed to September 15, 2014 because they found some issues.

Servicing stack update, interesting..
QuoteThe servicing stack includes the files and resources that are required to service a Windows image. This includes the Package Manager executable, the required servicing libraries, and other resources. The servicing stack is included in all Windows installations.
QuoteAssume that a specific driver is hosted on a Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) file share. You specify the UNC file share in the unattended.xml file, and then perform an unattended installation. In this situation, the installation fails. The driver is not found, and the following error message is logged in the Cbs_unattend.log file:
Driver Manager: PID=228 TID=712 Making connection to share with username 'username' and password 'password' ... ( HRESULT = 0x0 ) â€" DriversCallback
Error DISM DISM Driver

And finally, the roll up update

QuoteSome promotional items are priced at $0.00 but are labeled as 99% off in Windows Store in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2. These items should be labeled as 100% off.
lol, that is why they release this update at â'¨-â'¨-2014. ;D

Error showing up for open a placeholder files(OneDrive)

Always double taps when you click once on the scroll bar arrow(Precision Touchpad - PTP)
PS:That is why you need to wait before using PTP, it sound good, but it always having issues first, just look at your much older touchpad and it still has many issues too!
PTP is just a TouchPad standard for Windows User when they started this, then it get much improved like smooth, low latency(still not at least 500HZ) touchpad(hardware, as they can just handle the driver/software to MS except firmware)

PTP settings is not the same for each user account.
PS:Wait... So it should be the same settings, for each difference user? Or it is just for turn on/off?

Broadcast storm for Hyper-V user that switch from a network card to another network card
QuoteConsider the following scenario:•You have at least three client computers that are running Windows 8.1.
•The client computers each have one Ethernet network adapter and one Wi-Fi network adapter installed.
•You configure the client computers for the Hyper-V role.
•You connect both the Ethernet and Wi-Fi network adapter on each computer to the same subnet.
•You bind the Hyper-V virtual switch to the Wireless network adapter.

In this scenario, a broadcast "Unsolicited Neighbor" advertisement is sent from the Ethernet network adapter that contains the Ethernet network's source MAC address. Then, the virtual switch on the wireless network adapter receives this packet and duplicates it so that it contains the Wi-Fi network adapter's source MAC address. This may trigger a broadcast storm, as in the following example:

More info about it.

That's all of it. :)


Just want to said that, after restart the computer, you may found that Windows fail to install KB2984006 (September roll up patch), and trying to install it will get a error 80200056. :P
I think it is because it don't install the KB2975719(v3 or latest version), so it fail to detect that it need install another small patch first(you can see there are more patch/MSU files in KB2984006 - File information).

Just a simple fix, wait for the Tiworker.exe finish the jobs to compress first, then you re-detect the updates that needs by clicking on "Check for updates" on the left hand side, then it will detect another small patch that it need, and you just tick it, and let it download/install again. ;)
(yup, you will found that it don't download anything before you check for updates and try to install again)


Bitsum QA Engineer


It should be 9 patches only(windows+dot NET+Optional), if you ignore all small patches that is included inside the big patch. ;)
And interesting, I found a new patch from my security software, it is KB2894856 v2.

But based on some info, the old version is Superseded, and it should be the same with v2.


This is why you should use Website based or Windows 8's bundle OneDrive only.
Just kidding. ;D


he he , I don't use either , just posted for others .

I just wish MS fixes/replaces all these patches lately that either have been pulled or known to have many issues .

It is starting to make your head spin trying to keep track .
Bitsum QA Engineer


Yup, it is very funny to see KB2975719 re-released third time without showing it is v3 or something, I wonder did some Security software that provide patch function will be confuse or not, like not reinstalling the v3. :)

From the outside, we all wonder how these mega-corps screw up so bad. From the inside, it's obvious. They don't listen to their engineers, who are continually marginalized. Guidance is instead taken from the professional managers and their crystal balls, who invariably believe they are smarter than everyone else. I've yet to see a large corporation that is run well. Even Google's culture is starting to crumble.. and, if you remember, it succeeded because it was different in that it kept engineers in the driver seat.

Yup, a smart guy always know they are not smart, if they are smart, why they need to learn new thing? ;)
And everyone is good on difference thing, so as a professional mangers, you should not be good on all thing, but manage.

Anyways, most big-mega corps is still there, because they has difference team/department for difference software/functions, so they don't break all thing except that software/functions. :)

PS:I might be wrong, so you know. ;D


I forgot about the Adobe Reader, and my security software remind me about it. ;)

Nothing too much to read about it, except you are Enterprise.
Just something like Performance improved for launch it and some feature, vulnerability, and also added "View All" for "Recent files". :)


Bitsum QA Engineer


You can just using the inbuilt updater as well, as it is much smaller than download the full installer.
But the full installer is still useful to make sure all file is updated completely, and also as a backup for reinstall Windows without re-download them all. ;)


I generally don't use auto updaters options as depending on how the app sets this up .

The whole installer is not big in size, so i do it that way .
Installed fine .
Bitsum QA Engineer


Yup, if your download speed is very fast, choosing full installer than using the updater is much better.
And most of the software also don't reduce the update size at all(or provide partial update), they just push the full installer and silent install/update it.

So in most of the case(except you has a slow download speed like me, or lazy etc), it is better that you download a full installer which provide more install options than a auto update, so it don't doing something strange to your system. ;)


Windows Update has pushed 2 new important update on September 23, 2014, it don't need restart except the file that need to be update is using, like

A September, 2014 time zone update for Russia is available

Some versions of the OneDrive desktop app for Windows do not update automatically
QuoteThis problem occurs because of an incorrect registry key that is for self-update mechanism computers. It causes an AutoUpdater feature to crash.

And also, there is a update that not showing on Windows Update, which is the Adobe Flash Player for IE, and solved some playback failures. :)


Like before, Adobe Flash Player 15,0,0,189 is released. :)

PS:With Office Update, today's update is 1GB


Arial Narrow font updated to new version, you may see some error if you open a doc with old version of the font.

Look like MS also provided patch for Windows 10 preview, but some affected software might not apply.
QuoteAre Windows Technical Preview and Windows Server Technical Preview affected by any of the vulnerabilities that are addressed in this bulletin?
Yes. Security updates are available for Windows Technical Preview and Windows Server Technical Preview. Customers who are running these operating systems are encouraged to apply the update to their systems. The updates are available on Windows Update.

Note In some cases, not every update that is listed for a vulnerability will apply to the affected software that is installed on your system.

Fixed Automatic detect settings or Use automatic configuration script will not expired for IE10/11
QuoteIn windows 8, proxy as a service architecture in which proxy resolution is finished in a service does not respect cache lifetime for automatic proxy configuration file.

After you apply the recent cumulative security update for Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer (Wininet) will recheck the proxy service after an hour to make sure that the proxy script is current which account for scripts expiration. Therefore, even if you specify the expiry time of wpad cache that is less than an hour, Internet Explorer will re-download the new auto script only after an hour.

Increase prominence of Web suggestions for IE11, and removed default domain suggestions(A.K.A. ads)
QuoteIncreasingly, users search the web through the Internet Explorer address bar. To keep up with this growing need, this update increases prominence of web suggestions in Internet Explorer 11 so that you can easily select an appropriate web search suggestion. The changes include the following:

•History and Favorites group headers are not displayed in the suggestions list of the address bar. This lets more suggestions display in the same vertical space.
•For certain queries, there may only be several web suggestions. However, for other more ambiguous queries, more web suggestions may have to be displayed to capture your intent. With this update, the search engine can control how many web suggestions are appropriate for the typed query so that you receive the appropriate number of relevant suggestions.
•Domain suggestions for sites that you never visited before are not displayed (for example, if you type "m" and you had never visited "", it will not be displayed). These domain suggestions did not receive many clicks from you and yet you use valuable real estate. Instead, more relevant suggestions are displayed.

Still very busy, so...

Fix the Vulnerability in Kerberos
November 2014 update rollup

QuoteThis update rollup includes the following new features and improvements:
•Refreshed language packs
•Defence-in-depth security and Schannel hardening
•Support for newer hardware (boot order allowance, SD card improvements, USB debugging)
•Improved Web Services for Devices (WSD) printer support during network switches
•Performance and reliability improvements in clustered virtual machine mission-critical environments
•Improved manageability
•Additional hardware support (devices that have third-party disk encryption software enabled can now be upgraded to Windows 8.1 more easily)

This November update rollup also includes all previous updates since our last image update in April 2014. This is a convenient single step to bring Windows clients and servers up to date. Unlike our April update, the November update rollup is not required to be able to continue to receive security or other updates. However, we strongly recommend that you deploy it to Windows clients and servers to benefit from these new features and improvements as well as to prevent many known issues that have been resolved since April. This update is thoroughly tested to the same quality level as our previous service packs. However, unlike service packs, this update does not change the version number and does not deprecate or change any APIs in a manner that would require recertification.

And here is the file size. :)

QuoteWindows8.1-KB3000850-x64.msu - 711.1 MB

"DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f)" error if you shut down the computer while you are using the built-in VPN client

Local IP address cannot be registered on DNS server after DNS Client service is restarted
QuoteThis occurs because the DNS client service has an idle time-out, and it restarts on demand when it is needed. This issue occurs when the DNS Client stopped after it is idle (15 minutes default), and then restarts. After the service restarts in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2, the local IP addresses stop being registered in DNS. Therefore, as the time stamp of the record is not updated, DNS scavenger eventually deletes this record and the server becomes unreachable by DNS name.

Note This issue only occurs if the firewall rule allowing IPv6 Link-Local Multicast Name Resolution (LLMNR) traffic is disabled as then the service does not have to listen to the LLMNR traffic. Only then it stops when idle.

Chkdsk command freezes
QuoteThis issue occurs when system metadata or file metadata is corrupted in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2.

Note The execution of the chkdsk command is expected.

Bitsum QA Engineer


Ya, it will affect the update system, so you will unable to uninstall or install newer update or other thing that MS don't tell us.

But anyways, so MS is focusing on Windows 8.1? Or it is a very hidden bug to be found while testing?


the updater can't be to broken, there fix came through ok .

but yes, seems to affect some users but not others , many AMD had issue with Omega driver installing .
Bitsum QA Engineer


Maybe this patch has some workaround to bypass the issues and remove that update. ;)

Ya, it(or the other one that update the database of root certificate to newest) did affect AMD omega driver install, AMD has confirm about this issues, and telling the user to wait for MS to fix it, or just uninstall the update. :)


yes, I was kind of kidding .

I guess the patch was just some script to uninstall patch at some point from closing to next reboot as reboot was needed .
