Looking for a free upgrade to Windows 10?

Here’s how you can still get a free Windows 10 upgrade

Microsoft’s much-hyped free upgrade offer for Windows 10 ended months ago, right? Maybe not. The GWX tool may be gone, but all the other upgrade tools still work, and the end result is an apparently valid digital license. Here’s how to get yours.

Folder Redirection problem w/ Windows 7 and June 2016 Microsoft Updates

If you use a Folder Redirection Group Policy (of My Documents, Start Menu, App Data, etc.) with your Server and Windows 7 desktops, you may have noticed a problem after installing the latest (June 14, 2016) updates from Microsoft. For some reason, the GPO reports an error in RSOP.msc and reverts back to storing these folders in C:\Users.

After days of research, trial and error (rebooting, removing and rejoining the client to the domain, etc.) and a lot of frustration I finally tracked down the issue (in my case) to two updates:

KB3159398 MS16-072: Description of the security update for Group Policy: June 14, 2016
KB3161561 MS16-075 and MS16-076: Description of the security update for Windows Netlogon and SMB Server: June 14, 2016

After uninstalling these two updates and Clearing the Windows Client Side Cache things magically returned to normal.

I hope this helps and others can be spared from going through the same level of frustration,

Posted in Updates and Patches.
