Microsoft Patch Tuesday February 2018 updates

This month’s update includes patches for 50 vulnerabilities, along with patches for the infamous processor bugs Meltdown and Spectre.

In addition to those patches, Microsoft has also released a patch for a recent zero-day vulnerability for Adobe Flash Player. This update was bundled along with Microsoft’s ADV180004 update last week.

Although this past month didn’t have any major vulnerabilities reported, there was a notable cyberattack. During the inaugural ceremony for the Winter Olympics last week, a wiper malware (similar to NotPetya) took down most of the WAN and LAN networks at the Olympics.

gSuite help is still terrible.

I have several comments about how using paid support for Office 365 is far superior to the experience using gSuite including my comment on this article from 2015.

Yesterday's call to gSuite support reconfirms.  Problem is a user wants to have access to Android apps on his new Google Pixelbook. Going to settings on the Pixelbook to enable the feature is grayed out.  A call to Pixelbook support confirmed the issue is the user is a member of a business gSuite account and there is a feature that has to be turned on.  I was directed to call into gSuite. Calling gSuite support is about as helpful as talking to my 2 year old niece. The gSuite tech acted as if he had no knowledge of a Pixelbook. I had to explain several times it was a product of his own company. Even going down the Chromebook route didn't help. He could simply point to turning on a feature that was already set. Otherwise, I would have to call the Pixelbook Support.

I have called into office 365 support for many issues. Sometimes the issue went beyond the scope of what the tech should have helped for their own silo, but they still were able to spend 30 to 60 minutes on the phone to solve the issue with great patience and product knowledge.

After the sale support many times goes unnoticed or untested.  When evaluating a service or software, I will call in…

Please do Scott. I'll be more than happy to edit and get it published for you.

I think a lot of people may benefit from your experiences, and it may just be the push Google needs to provide some decent support.

I think some Basic to Intermediate MAC OS courses for those who are migrating from a Microsoft Windows environment over to a MAC would be highly useful. For instance, showing how things are done on a Windows machine can be done on a MAC OS. I find lots of people struggle with coming to terms with a MAC OS if they've been using a Windows environment for a long time.

For an example, take a look at this question.

In continuation to my previous post https://www.experts-exchange.com//posts/3606/Had-the-following-issue-and-took-these-steps-to-solve-it-I.html  where I pointed out that when it comes to troubleshooting you should always start from the bottom and work your way up. The previous post was about cmd, this one will be about booting in safe. And few examples of my own experience.

Example one
Computer started and got till the dotted circling [windows 10] and there it got stuck. Since I did not hear any noise from the computer, I did not start in the direction of hardware diagnostic, rather I rebooted and logged in safe mode without networking. Why without networking as said start as low you could and work your way up. Okay I was able to log in. now I tried to login to safe mode with networking [one step up], ow was not able to login. Okay so now I know the issue is related to network, I took a step back and logged in again in safe mode without networking. from my experience I find many times components drivers like network or graphics card to be the causes of not being able to login or computer crash, I opened device manager, expended network adapter, right click, uninstall driver (don’t worry about the drive windows will reinstall it at the next login), reboot and issue solved.

Note: driver issues are more common on refurbished computers or windows 7 PC upgraded to windows 10. My recommendation when you update a driver to do it from the component manufacturing’s site …

Despite the many advances, Windows 10 is a big maintenance problem (daily updates) and there is not a real good way to handle this. Good people will be needed for a while yet

Want to share my experience since this issue is discussed on the internet I followed the solution I found on YouTube all offered the same solution and none work for me but..
A windows 10 machine hung on startup the window 10 startup circle stopped circling and that's it. The option to login did not shows up.
I restarted it into safe mode as soon I logged in I got the following msg “Microsoft edge can’t open with built in administrator account windows 10”
I searched on YouTube how to fix this error msg, the solutions offered was how to modify the security policy’s for the build in admin. Did not work for me.
What did work was I uninstalled the network drivers (in device manager) did a restart and the system boot was successful.
Seams that since window had an issue with the network driver it gave an error on Microsoft edge. But not sure why it include in the msg the misleading end of being relate to the built in administrator account.
Hope you may find this helpful

I have seen this message often.  When I log in with a different account, no problems.  This may be due to the fact that the machines where I see the problem are on a domain.

In my case the computer was not joined to a domain.
Since the network driver was what kept the computer from booting and the app the in the error was edge which make sense to have a connection to the network card driver, I assume that the troubleshooting would work in other scenarios and logging in with a different account would not work in this case.
