Windows 7 And 8.1 Updates Here To Fix Up A Bunch Of Issues

The second Tuesday of every month brings along its own unique set of goodies for users of Microsoft platforms, and Windows 7 and 8.1 just got a bunch of new updates as part of Patch Tuesday.

To go with a range of fixes released for all four versions of Windows 10.

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 users are in line for KB4034664, which contains the following fixes:

  • Security updates to Microsoft JET Database Engine, Common Log File System Driver, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Volume Manager Driver, Internet Explorer, Windows Server, and Windows kernel-mode drivers.

It can be downloaded and installed here.

Along with a security only update that goes by KB4034679, which is up for grabs at this link. It has a changelog similar to the monthly rollup above, which only contains security fixes. Installing these will ensure your Windows 7 installation stays in tip top shape.

Both updates are also applicable to Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

That’s that for the users of the world’s most popular operating system, which still has more or less half the desktop userbase to its name.

Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 users got KB4034681 to play with, which you can check out by pointing your browser to this here link. It also addresses a number of known issues.

Namely:

  • Addressed issue where a LUN connection that was received after the buffer allocation during iSCSI statistic collection overflowed the buffer and caused error 0x19. A UI issue that hides the iSCSI targets will be addressed in an upcoming release.
  • Security updates to Windows Server, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Internet Explorer, Volume Manager Driver, Common Log File System Driver, Microsoft Windows PDF Library, Microsoft JET Database Engine, Windows kernel-mode drivers, and Windows Hyper-V.

Again, the security only update KB4034672 comes with the same release notes, and available here.

All these updates and monthly rollups can be deployed by either by firing up Windows Update in the Control Panel, or via manual installation via the links above.
