Microsoft builds emergency patch for severe Windows bug

The Windows 10 user experience is intuitive, and users generally adapt with little or no training. Now, it makes an appearance for Windows Insiders in the Microsoft Photos application. The engine is used by Windows Defender, the malware scanner preinstalled on Windows 7 and later, as well as by other Microsoft consumer and enterprise security products: Microsoft Security Essentials, Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010, Microsoft Endpoint Protection, Microsoft Forefront Security for SharePoint Service Pack 3, Microsoft System Center Endpoint Protection and Windows Intune Endpoint Protection.

The picture shows a concept edition of Windows 10's improved looks codenamed to be Project Neon.

SCCM Changes Microsoft had previously suggested that it would harmonize System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) upgrades with Windows 10 and Office 365 ProPlus upgrades, but it's not exactly clear that Microsoft will stray from its now used "current branch" nomenclature used for SCCM upgrades, which arrive every four months.

We can expect some dramatic new features and updates on the Microsoft's blue-eyed programme, that is MS Office Suite.

Several reports have also suggested that Microsoft was working with third-party hardware partners, probably HP, Acer or Lenovo, to build HomeHub-oriented devices.

Organizations adopting Windows 10 are expected to conform to Microsoft's "servicing model", consisting of sequential "branches" for each Windows 10 version. Think of Windows 10 S as a trial for that strategy. Ormandy later tweeted his congratulations to Microsoft for patching the vulnerability so quickly. The smart home control feature, or at least the first stages of it, will become part of Windows 10, possibly in the next update due in September.

In theory, Google could use those tools to turn the desktop version of its Chrome browser into an app package. Home Hub will essentially allow family members control their family calendar, to-do lists, and notes from one central hub. Microsoft has announced another event for the end of this month in China and it's believed this is where the Surface product line will be discussed - perhaps with a new Surface Pro housing faster Intel processors and better battery life on the agenda. This should bring Microsoft's bots feature outside of Skype and onto the web in a bigger way. We will have more details on everything that's coming to Windows 10 later this week, so stay tuned for more on that front. It's still a good idea to jump on it now, however, which you can do by manually installing the update.

The new guide is also more work for administrators who want to scan the updates and determine which ones are important for them. Microsoft's speaker will be called "Invoke". At Microsoft Build 2017 we invite you to join us in downtown Seattle to learn about latest new technologies and exciting plans on the horizon. The company is planning to allow developers to add bots to the company's Bing search results to let you to chat with restaurants and other retailers. The company might also have some new A.I tech to show off at the conference, which is always very fascinating.
