I have used this a number of times now and it does not include the GWX nags in it but it does include the new telemetry updates.
Run windows update after this patch and it will include the GWX in the available updates.
In fact, in Windows 10 and Windows 8, the service pack, as we know it from previous versions of Windows, is essentially a dead idea.
Much like updates on your smartphone, Microsoft is continually adding major features via automatic patching.
Updating is completely automatic via Windows Update.
“Threadripper” (code-name ZP aka “Zeppelin”) is simply a combination of inter-connected Ryzen dies (“nodes”) on a single socket (TR4) that in effect provide a SMP system-on-a-single-socket – without the expense of multiple sockets, cooling solutions, etc.
While I don’t know how many users are impacted, based on comments sent to me, it’s certainly widespread enough that this is well beyond an isolated issue.
The update that is causing the problem, KB3194496, is not installing correctly for users.
Keep in mind, however, that even if you install this service pack, your computer won’t be fully protected anymore because some of the vulnerabilities found in Windows XP won’t be patched.
On the other hand, with the criticism going on these days against Windows 10, and with Windows XP running so well on old hardware, it’s not that hard to see why so many people want to use the latter.
