    New Update today BEWARE!


    I just did the latest update.
    At least it was for me.

    Low and behold Microsoft decided to install a little EXTRA DRM on me without notice.

    It's a file called Au.exe and was in the temp folder.
    The actual program name is Online Games Manager and was immediately caught trying to call out by my firewall.

    Well, it was IMMEDIATELY blocked and IMMEDIATELY uninstalled.

    It's getting to the point that Microsoft is just being [removed] installing crap that is unwarranted as well as unwanted.

    Ummmm.....

    That has nothing to do with updates - more correct -with KB3081455. Maybe that's a virus??

    You should have a scan with Malware-bytes and see it for yourself.

    Right after I updated this program activated and I may have jumped to conclusions.

    all the same, today's updates caused some problems on some of the 10 systems i manage. it made me wish i could shut off auto update on win10 pro. i hope that feature is forthcoming.

    I checked off "Defer upgrades" on every machine, and completely disabled all machines from getting and delivering updates to and from other machines on the network (just in case one of the machines got a bad DL and then delivered it to the rest of my systems). that's about as much power as MS gives us at the moment

    @ firebasejay: It's like it is in football: Deferring is in fact what you should do. Preventing security relevant updates from installing is not a good idea.

    I've had that file show up in my systems, not sure what it is. Here is more info on it, sometimes it shows up as "AU_.exe" Best thing to do is to check for rootkits using Malwarebytes or the TDSSKILLER app. I think it is left over from a program installer though.

    As far as KB3081455 - It is another bad MS update. After it installed, it caused my AeroHost.exe to stop working and I lost my AeroGlass. After removing KB3081455, it came back. I used the MS Fixit that was posted recently to hide that update. Check the recent posts for download link.
