    To resolve this issue, use the following method:1.Install the OXPS to XPS converter tool by clicking the download link in this article.
    2.Use the tool to convert the .oxps file to an .xps file.

    Windows 8 with Secure Boot enabled may no longer boot after installing new hardware

    Symptoms

    Consider the following scenario:

    •You have a certified Windows 8 or Windows RT UEFI-based computer and Secure Boot has been enabled in the computer's BIOS.
    •You make changes to the computer's hardware. Examples would include adding a new graphics, networking or storage controller adapter.

    In this scenario, Windows may no longer boot after the changes are made. You may encounter behaviors such as hanging at a black screen, Windows crashing with a blue screen, or BIOS error messages to change your settings.



    Cause

    This behavior may occur when Secure Boot has been enabled in your computer's BIOS. Secure Boot protects the integrity of the operating system and prevents unauthorized firmware, operating systems or UEFI drivers from interfering with the boot process.
    Back to the top | Give Feedback

    Resolution

    To work around this issue, Secure Boot must first be disabled before installing new hardware. For more information on disabling Secure Boot in your computer's BIOS, reference the manual that came with your motherboard or contact your motherboard manufacturer. If you are in an enterprise environment, contact your system administrator.

    If you’re running Java SE 6, we have some news for you: Oracle stopped providing public updates to it after February 2013.

    Enterprise customers will still have access to long term help through their support channels.

    For everyone else, you should upgrade to Java SE 7 and remove Java SE 6 - remember Java doesn’t remove older versions by default.

    Malware exploiting vulnerabilities in Java isn’t new. We’ve written about Java vulnerabilities on this blog before. In fact, since July this year Exploit:Java/CVE-2013-2465 has been making the rounds and targeting Java SE 6.

    Oracle has done a great job of releasing Java updates to patch these vulnerabilities.

    However, Java SE 6 is about seven years old, and Java SE 7 was released more than two years ago. This means it’s time to think about alternatives for the aging version.

    While we’re talking about end-of-support software - technical assistance for Windows XP will no longer be available from April 8, 2014.

    This includes the updates that help protect your PC against security risks and malware. It’s a good time to think about installing Windows 8 on your PC.

    Disk Cleanup Wizard addon lets users delete outdated Windows updates on Windows 7 SP1

    Introduction
    This article describes an update for the Disk Cleanup wizard in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

    This update adds a new plugin to the Disk Cleanup wizard. After you install this update, you can use the Windows Update Cleanup option to delete Windows updates that you no longer need.

    Notes
    The Windows Update Cleanup option is available only when the Disk Cleanup wizard detects Windows updates that you do not need on the computer.
    To let you roll back to previous updates, updates are stored in the WinSxS store even after they are superseded by later updates. Therefore, after you run the Disk Cleanup wizard, you may be unable to roll back to a superseded update. If you want to roll back to a superseded update that the Disk Cleanup wizard deletes, you can manually install the update.

    November 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2



    November 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2:


    https://support2.microsoft.com/kb/3000850?wa=wsignin1.0


    This update rollup includes the following new features and improvements:


    * Refreshed language packs


    * Defence-in-depth security and Schannel hardening


    * Support for newer hardware (boot order allowance, SD card


    improvements, USB debugging)


    * Improved Web Services for Devices (WSD) printer support during


    network switches


    * Performance and reliability improvements in clustered virtual


    machine mission-critical environments


    * Improved manageability


    * Additional hardware support (devices that have third-party disk


    encryption software enabled can now be upgraded to Windows 8.1 more


    easily)


    This November update rollup also includes all previous updates since our last image update in April 2014. This is a convenient single step to bring Windows clients and servers up to date. Unlike our April update, the November update rollup is not required to be able to continue to receive security or other updates. However, we strongly recommend that you deploy it to Windows clients and servers to benefit from these new features and improvements as well as to prevent many known issues that have been resolved since April. This update is thoroughly tested to the same quality level as our previous service packs. However, unlike service packs, this update does not change the version number and does not deprecate or change any APIs in a manner that would require recertification.

    1. Changes to OneDrive
      We want to let you know about some upcoming changes to OneDrive. On August 10, 2016, the amount of storage that comes with OneDrive will change from 15 GB to 5 GB. We are also discontinuing the 15 GB camera roll bonus. You can learn more at our FAQ.
      There is no action you need to take, because your OneDrive account is currently below the new storage limits. Even though you aren't currently affected, we want to keep you updated on all important changes to OneDrive. If you'd like to check your account, you can visit the Storage page.
      We realize these are big changes to a service you rely on. We want to apologize for any inconvenience they may cause you. We made a difficult decision, but it's one that will let us sustainably operate OneDrive into the future.
      Thank you for using OneDrive.

    1. Action required for users of Windows Live Mail 2012
    2. Dear User,
      Earlier this year we introduced a new Outl‍ook‍.‍com that will help you collaborate with others, focus on what matters, and get more done. The new Outlo‍ok‍.‍com delivers an exciting set of new experiences across web, phone, and desktop, and we’re eager for you to start using it.
      It appears that you are currently using Windows Live Mail 2012 to connect to your Out‍look‍.‍com account. Windows Live Mail 2012 does not support the synchronization technologies used by the new Outl‍ook‍.‍com. When account upgrades begin at the end of June, you will no longer be able to receive email sent to your Out‍look‍.‍com account in Windows Live Mail 2012. Rest assured, you can always access your email by logging into Out‍look‍.‍com from any web browser, and you will continue to have access to all your data that is currently in Windows Live Mail 2012.
      If you currently use Windows Live Mail 2012, we recommend that you switch to the Mail app in Windows to‍day. The Mail app is built in to Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10, and has a more modern design. To begin using it, simply launch the app and add your Out‍look‍.‍com account.
      If you are using Windows 7, you can upgrade to a newer version of Windows to enjoy the Mail app and the other benefits. If you do not wish to upgrade, you can access your account via a web browser, or, you can take advantage of a free one-year subscription of Office 365 Personal, and use Outl‍ook 2016 to connect to your account.* This Off‍ice 365 subscription also includes other productivity applications such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel. It works on Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10.
      Please take action before Ju‍ne 30th, 2016, which is when we’ll begin upgrading accounts that currently use Windows Live Mail 2012. If you have more questions, please find answers to common FAQs in this help article, or you can contact Microsoft support.
      We recognize that changes like this can be difficult, and apologize for any inconvenience this causes you. We hope that you’ll enjoy the benefits of moving to the new Outl‍ook‍.‍com.
      Sincerely,
      Outl‍ook‍.‍com team
