Yes, I see the same issues.  We will get on it.  FYI, I cannot see those settings either, so there is definitely an access glitch there.  Again, sorry for any inconvenience this might be causing.

Yes, I noticed that too.  I think that is part of the same problem.  Fortunately, the problem does not appear to have affected broader forum access, although if anyone notices issues with that, again please post that issue here.

Please post here if you experience any other issues
Under "Profile", in addition to "Account Settings" not working as reported above, "Forum Profile" fails too. "Summary" works, however.

Re:   KB2949927 Microsoft Security Advisory: Availability of SHA-2 hashing algorithm for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2      https://support.microsoft.com/kb/2949927

 

This update has been removed from the Download Center because of an issue with the update. Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available. We recommend that customers who are experiencing issues with this update uninstall this update.

To do this, follow these steps:
1.Click Start, click Control Panel, click Programs and Features, and then click View installed updates.
2.Select "Security update for Microsoft Windows (KB2949927)" and then click Uninstall.

================

Remark:   I have "successfully" installed this update.   I don't see any details/explanation of the nature of the "issues", so I don't know what to look for.   Nothing "obvious" is happening... so I'm leaving things "as is" for the moment.

On 11 separate Win7 machines at work, I noticed that each one shut down to install the updates, restarted, configured the updates... and then immediately/automatically began another shutdown/restart/configure sequence.

Most, if not all of these, showed a failed update.

It seems there were two "recommended" updates, either/both of which were causing the failures.

When I got home, I carefully UN-selected any "recommended" updates... and that system booted only once --- as expected --- to complete the installation.

I have just now configured Windows Updates NOT to offer me "recommended" updates the same way as it does "important" updates.
