    2 New important updates


    I just installed

    KB2933809

    &

    KB2957390

    They fixed my Lock screen pictures issues & my Start screen pictures issues & enabled some old programs to function again.

    Just thought I would pass the information along.

    Check Windows Update & see if they are available to you.
    They may not be available for all systems.

    EDIT-- They fixed my ability to add pictures from my computer to the Forum.

    I see KB2933809 in my update history, 4/8/2014. I'm pretty sure it came after update 1. I don't see KB2957390 listed though. Can't say as I had any of the problems you mentioned. If I did I didn't notice it. I auto log in and boot right to desktop.

    Same here re the updates. And I haven't noticed any issues (yet).

    Just did an update search, KB....7390 doesn't show up, nor is it already installed.


    Wenda.

    KB2933809 was installed with latest updates but KB2957390 can't find installed or as available. Can't find what "problem" it's supposed to fix.

    See this for KB2957390:

    You are unable to uninstall IIS after you install KB2919355 in Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2

    See this for kb2933809:

    Compatibility update is available for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2: April 2014

    No wonder my older programs started working & the pictures issues.
