Preferred Solution: Windows 10 will get Two new updates on 2017

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If you have Windows XP SP3 tweaked and configured to keep receiving security updates until April 2019, the last ones that appeared was in December 2016.
No updates appeared in January or February 2017.
A check of the Microsoft Update Catalog site today showed 8 updates for March 2017.
I did a custom scan to check for new updates and had the same 8 updates appear.
They all installed fine.
This is the list of those 8 updates:

According to the Microsoft Update Catalog site, there appears to be a total of 12 security updates for March 2017 for Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 9.
I'll try to confirm that as soon as I set up my test machine and do a "checking for updates".

Be aware that April 2017 will be the LAST security updates released by Microsoft for Windows Vista.
It will then go "extinct" like Windows XP did almost 3 years ago.

What will be the process of businesses receiving Windows Security Updates for their OS's for e.g. (Windows Server 2012r2 Datacenter)? Will they still be released via WSUS or what would be the procedure?

Can somebody please post a list of Windows Vista Updates (full KB number format) for the month of January 2017, if there are any? My 4 Windows Vista laptops have been on continuously, "Checking for Updates" since January 10th, 2017 and still nothing. It's already January 16th today. I thought I would just install them manually if there are any updates. Many thanks in advance for your help.

Answer:Windows Vista Updates for January 2017

Hi DCom73:
 
If you were fully patched as of December 2016, the only Important/Recommended updates released for Vista SP2 for the January 2017 Patch Tuesday updates on 10-Jan-2017 were KB3216775 (MS17-004: Security Update for Local Security Authority Subsystem Service: January 10, 2017) and the latest version of KB890830 for the January 2017 Malicious Software Removal Tool.  The Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for January 2017 shows that there were only four security updates released in January 2017 for all supported versions of Windows.
 
Please see post # 326 in KellyB56's thread Windows Vista Update Hangs at "Checking For Updates" for further details.  If Windows Updates are running for several hours (or even days) on your Vista SP2 machines there is a possible workaround posted on page 1 of m#l's thread Updates not working, it has been searching for updates for hours in the MS Answers forum that could help speed up your Windows Updates.
------------32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox v50.1.0 * NIS v22.8.1.14 * MBAM Premium v2.2.1

HI
It seems like almost every time I turn off my laptop (router/new HD since 12/16/ about 5 years old Toshiba) there are windows updates that require downloading and installing during laptop shutting off.
It also seems that there are always 7 updates to install and that they are the same 7 updates at least since 5/17 until today.
Looking at the updates log, reveals that it is not entirely correct, although there appear to be many updates that in fact are the same one, which my laptop cannot seem to be able to install it. This is (for example) one of those updates:
Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (Kb3080149). I can provide the rest of the updates list/log in order to check the reason for the downloading/installment failure of those updates
But I would appreciate an answer, something that will enable me to fix the problem and avoid from leaving my computer for a whole week again, at the importer's premises.
Please explain the possible reason for the updating failure and the solution for the problems or how to resolve it asap.
Thank you
Oree.

The highlight of this month?s update is the arrival of MSI setup files for Emsisoft Anti-Malware, which will undoubtedly come in handy for advanced users and network administrators alike. Together with Emsisoft Enterprise Console, they can be used for time-efficient group policy deployment in larger Windows networks. A new, smaller web installer is now also available for download. It reduces the required download traffic to a minimum, transferring only data that is required for your operating system edition.Click to expand...

Microsoft confirms no more Windows 10 feature updates in 2016; two coming in 2017

Microsoft published a TechNet blog post on Tuesday regarding what's new in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. In the article, the company confirmed that it has two feature updates planned for 2017, but no more for this year.

Based on feedback from organizations moving to Windows 10, this will be our last feature update for 2016, with two additional feature updates expected in 2017.

The news is right in line with current rumors. Tuesday's Anniversary Update would be the one feature update for this year, and Redstone 2 - the codename for the next major Windows 10 update - isn't slated to arrive until April 2017. Redstone 3 is rumored as well, but without any release timing, so with today's news, it's presumably late 2017.

It's also in line with what Microsoft has already said. Back in May, the firm said that it would be pushing two feature updates for Windows 10 every year.

The obvious question that you're probably asking is, if Microsoft said that it would release two updates per year, why would the company only release one this year? Well, when Microsoft says the word 'year', it could mean a calendar year, or it could mean a fiscal year, which would be over at the end of June. With that in mind, the firm has released two major updates for Windows 10 every year, and is on pace to do so, even with Redstone 2 coming in April.

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?
 

Answer:Kaspersky IS 2017 vs Norton IS 2017 vs Bitdefender IS 2017

bitdefender free+ CF and SAP i think will be good

I got some new updates today. One said something about the Technical Preview. Below is the screenshot of what it says. I am a member of the Insider Preview but haven't downloaded it in a while to any of my computers.

Cumulative Update KB4015583 Windows 10 v1703 Build 15063.138 - - Windows 10 Forums

If someone could tell me why this update says this, then that will be greatly appreciated.

Also, if I am in the Preview, how do I get out of it?

Answer:Patch Tuesday (4/11/2017) Updates

Technical Preview was the beginning which morphed into Insider Preview, I wouldn't be concerned. Sometimes Microsoft is lagging/lax in name changes being updated for the current versions such as File Explorer was named Windows Explorer in Win7 and earlier, maybe back to Win95 [1995] In Win3.xx/WFW the file management was called File Manager and the initial GUI interface that opened was called Program Manager. Based on all that it's easy to see how shortcutting names of things can also add to the confusion. Same for the Versions of Win10, much longer than with Win7 as in the complete name of Windows 10 Version 1607 Build 14393.xxx. The version/build in the link you give is the Insider Preview, mine are Version 1705 Build 16170.1000.

Our organization has recently deployed the December 2017 patches that included security updates for Internet Explorer. Many users with the new patches (including KB4052978, and KB4054518) have difficulty in accessing several different websites or portions
of websites. The error that appears is the generic, "This page can't be displayed." This issue started immediately after installing the new patches, and is occurring in IE11 on machines running Windows 7, or Windows 10.
On every PC with the issue, the same webpage will load in Chrome without any errors. The problem is, even after uninstalling the updates and rebooting, the issue persists, as if the uninstallation failed to set the reg keys back to the original state. The
only fix working so far is to rollback to a system restore point pre-patch installation.
Has anyone experienced a similar issue this month?

I have a quite nice Auzentech Merdian Soundcard that does my output of choice Dolby Digital (plus) very well in Win7 X64.
The absolutely atrocious support of this codec on Win10 is the primary reason I would never even consider an update from Win7.  Unfortunately I am stuck on Win10 on my laptop and all my nice USB devices for DDplus are useless because MS removed support
or broke this codec on Win10.
Now I get an Update for win7 x64 and my Auzentech meridian PCI card is crippled pretty much the same way as in Win10.
Fortunately I have a backup image from just before the update which I restored my OS drive  ..... and my card works perfectly again.
Looks really bad in my eyes .....  Windows updates are now permanently on "let me choose" and is one small step away from OFF
Looks like this is the troublemaker KB2956078 which is actually for Office Outlook 2010.  Why it is messing with my audio is anyone's guess.

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is the best solution as protection from malwares. This software is providing users very nice anti-malware solu... Read more

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.

Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Every time there is a windows update, my computer turns itself on and installs the update on its own.

Answer:Windows updates - Computer boots up on it's own and installs updates, how can I stop it doing updates on it's own?

In your PC settings, try setting Windows update to anything except "Automatic". However, with this setting change, you would need to regularly check for updates to ensure that your PC is up-to-date with regards to security.

Hi, my office upgraded our one computer to Windows 10, now we are unable to login using our regular password. This is a local account- no Microsoft Account has ever been on there. I've tried three reps from ms and after a half hour all have told me the only option is to reset windows and lose all the files.

As some of us know you can still get Win 10 free using the accessibility install which will activate with most (all i have done) Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 keys.

If you do still want to get Windows 10 for free, get it soon

https://www.engadget.com/2017/11/04...10-promo-on-december-31st/?sr_source=Facebook

Microsoft largely stopped offering free Windows 10 upgrades back in July 2016. However, there's been an ongoing exception: if you use accessibility features, you've had an extension of that promo. And now, that last deal is coming to an end. Microsoft has quietly updated its site to reveal that free upgrades for those who need assistive technologies will end on December 31st, 2017. The company hasn't directly explained the timing for the cutoff, but the extension was announced to give extra time to users who had to wait for the July 2016 Anniversary Update before they got promised accessibility features. Given that there have been numerous milestone updates since then, there's a good chance you've already moved to Windows 10 if you were holding out.Click to expand...

Windows Defender Application Guard for Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge with Windows Defender Application Guard mode enabled on the Edge browser will protect enterprises from advanced attacks that can infiltrate your network and devices via the Internet, creating a safer, worry-free browsing experience for customers. ​
ARSTECHNICA - Application Guard extends Virtualization Based Security to protect against browser flaws.

Microsoft has announced that the next major update to Windows 10 will run its Edge browser in a lightweight virtual machine. Running the update in a virtual machine will make exploiting the browser and attacking the operating system or compromising user data more challenging.

[...]

Microsoft recognizes that this feature would be desirable on consumer machines, too, and not just for Edge.

This may be acceptable for a locked-down enterprise environment, but it isn't a good fit for consumers. Virtualization also likely comes at some performance cost, although Microsoft is not saying just what that performance cost is right now.

Nonetheless, this use of virtualization to harden a system is an exciting move.

Application Guard will become available later this year in Insider builds of Windows, hitting a stable version some time in 2017.

Answer:Windows Defender Application Guard, Windows 10 Edge 2017

In theory it sounds good but let's wait to actually see the feature. Makes no sense to make appcontainer and then decide to do a Vm so soon and why would they put it only on Edge? Micro vm usually involves higher resource usage but who knows MS has the money to maybe figure it out. It will be good for the industry.

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

My Windows Office 2016 subscription expires this month.
I need to renew but I was wondering when 2017 is going to be released.
I searched online but I found a lot of stuff on 2016, but nothing for 2017.
It probably won't be released this month but I thought I would check, because I don't want to buy it this week and have a new version come out next week.

I don't think MSFT does this for Office like they do for Windows 10, but if we purchase an Office product and there are changes during the year, do they issue updates? I don't recall any.
If they issue 2017 after I buy the 2016 version does it get updated when they release the new version? I don't think they do, but I thought I would ask.

Many thanks!

Answer:Windows Office 2016/2017

Office is not updated to a new version every year - for Windows was 2010, then 2013 then 2016.

If you get a subscription now you will get 2016 (plus latest updates) and it will automatically update to latest version whenever it is released (assuming your subscription is still valid).

Just as the title suggests, I have no sound. I have gone through all the basic troubleshooting steps that one would think could be plausible.

Nothing is working, yet everything was perfectly fine last night on 11/2/2017 before I updated and shut my PC down for the night. What's weird is that my playback device acts like the volume is working anyway, showing a healthy green bar when I play a YouTube video. I have attached an image to showcase this.

 Guess I just never used it on my Windows 7 laptop-never even saw it. I am a jump in and explore on my own type. I looked and it isn't even on this Windows 10 laptop I am using so it probably isn't even used anymore by HP on their machines. Most of the features it lists is stuff you can do on your own. For example, if you are setting up a printer run the software/driver disc that comes with it- it walks you through it. Stuff like "protect your computer" probably was details about the trial Anti-virus app that comes on most laptops. As far as backup- you can find that in Control Panel. If the program is listed in Programs and Features in Control Panel you should be able to Uninstall it there.Or another possible way here:http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/uninstall-programs-windows-10

Hi, @Toronto Cat

If it just popped up today, on both systems, and was not a problem before, I would be inclined to just let it go till tomorrow and see if it clears up. Sounds like you didn't do anything to cause it....no software installs/uninstalls or the like. Reboot both systems and check. Could be just a temporary glitch somewhere...MS or your ISP or something else. Reboot your router, too.

If it keeps occurring, we can look into it further.

See if you can System Restore to before Net Framework 4 was installed and then Hide it when it is again offered in Updates.

But be aware that some programs will need it and may not prompt you of this leaving you to guess why they are not installing or performing correctly. For this reason I always install it.

So you might want to reinstall it using its standalone installer since it may not have uninstalled correctly anyway.

Answer:Windows 10 latest version 2017 upgrade

You can download an ISO file here: http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=BNsvxcZV which can be used to create a bootable disk or memory stick. For an automated version download the Windows 10 Media Creation tool here: http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=MWQSbC77 which you can use to create installation media.
Obviously, you'll need to make the installation media on a computer that boots.

We have a mixed Windows 7 x64 and Windows XP x86 environment. Win 7 have 4GB RAM and are SP1. Win XP have 2GB RAM and SP3.
They share a folder "Scans" for scanned documents sent from network multifunction printers

On these PCs run SAP B1 Client, Outlook 2007, Symantec Endpoint Protection 12 RU6.
Win 7 PCs, randomly, show event 2017. The exact message is "The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the server reached the configured limit for nonpaged pool allocations.". The multifunction printers are not able
to send scanned documents on the shares.

The computer was using 110-130 MB of nonpaged memory at the time of the event. The driver with higher usage of non paged memory pool is the intel storage driver (iastore.sys) with 30MB (I use Poolmon). The Non Paged Pool limit showed by Process Explorer is
about 3GB.
Reading Mark Russinovich?s Pushing the Limits of Windows: Paged and Nonpaged Pool it appears the Windows memory manager statically set nonpaged limit to 75% of RAM (3GB in fact). We assume the configured limit referred to in event 2017 is set by the LanmanServer.
So which limit am I reaching on these clients? Allocations or what else? And how can I see the allocation limit and which process/driver is reaching that limit?
Repeating the above scenario only using an WindowsXP SP3 (32 bits) computer with 2GB RAM , with same applications installed on them as on Win 7 clients, does not cause event 2017 or any ... Read more

Hello,

I'm trying to install Autodesk Maya 2017 on Windows 8.1 Professional x86 but I get:

I tried editing setup.ini as the following ( from "x64" to "x86" ) -- But only " Autodesk Desktop App " is being installed and " Autodesk Maya 2017 " isn't being installed !

My processor can install x64 operating systems but I only have " Windows 7 x64 " and " Windows 10 x64 " and I don't want to change my current operating system because I don't want to format my current operating system ...

Any solution ?

If a lot of people told me to install Windows 10 x64 ... then I think it will be only the 1 solution

I started having issues with the ultranav middle button. It works when i start the computer but after a few minutes of scrolling up and down it does not work anymore.  The only way to have it function again is to either restart (which will again only work for a few minutes) or use a bluetooth mouse to uncheck and check the mouse settings for trackpoint which that too will work for a few minutes only. I've updated the bios and updated the driver. Still not stable. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Hi, I am running windows 8.1 pro on a toshiba S855 Satellite.  The windows store app stopped working a while back.  I have tried a variety of fixes found on the net (like WSrest, and
powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml, none have fixed the problem.
 If I click on the winstore exe icon in the winstore folder I get the following message in a popup
script: C:windows\winstore\winstore.js
line: 15
Char: 1
Error: Expected identifier, string or number
Code: 800A0404
Source: Microsoft JScript compilation error

If I try to start winstore by typing, start "" "ms-windows-store:"  in a command prompt I get the following message,  "the remote procedure call failed.
 I did also try going back in time with a restore thinking that a windows update may have caused the problem but that did not solve it.

Anyone else having problems after latest (April 2017) update?
My PC went so s-l-o-w that it was nearly unusable.
My solution so far - after virus scan, looking for other setting and software problems- was to uninstal the latest update (KB4015438) - seems to have solved the problem at least for now.
Hope that's useful and love to hear other solutions.

2017-09 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4040724) breaks Internet Explorer immediately after the update.

After first discovering this I verified by testing on 2 different Macrium backups, the oldest dating back to July 22.

I then tried uninstalling and reinstalling IE, with no effect.

Can someone please conform this, and have you found a fix?

I hope that's all the problems this update brought

Not for me it hasn't (I'm posting this with IE). This update includes an update to IE that was first seen in the Sept. 12th Cumulative Update KB4038788 Windows 10 v1703 Build 15063.608





Key changes include...
Updates to Internet Explorer 11?s navigation bar with search box....



Most of us survived that with only a minor cosmetic change, it put IE back to having tabs and the address box on separate bars, easily put back to a single bar. A few had problems with IE not opening though. See this (Solved) thread for descriptions and some solutions.

Today my PC has had a windows update, and it has done it overnight whilst my computer was turned off.
Now I cannot turn off my computer or put it to sleep, as it just turns on again straight away. I have disabled fast startup, prevented the WiFi driver from being able to wake up my device and uninstalled the Intel Management engine interface.
Is there any other fix to this problem

Hey everyone,
This post is not meant to put your hopes up or anything but I was just speculating about whether snapchat will finally make it to windows after BUILD 2017. I wanted to know your opinions regarding this.
The reason I'm posting about this is that I recently went back to W10M from android and the only thing bothering me is Snapchat (after all these years) still not showing any interest in making a UWP app for windows.

Source: Windows 10 v1607 media now available

3rd February 2017 UPDATE: End of servicing for Windows 10, version 1507 will now occur in May.​On November 29th, Windows 10 v1607 was declared the Current Branch for Business, also known as the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

End of servicing for Windows 10, version 1507​With the availability of Windows 10 v1607, the grace period for Windows 10 RTM v1507 will begin. That means, after May 2017, Windows 10 v1507 will no longer be serviced, as only the two most Current Branch for Business (CBB) versions are actively serviced (ie, v1607 and v1511)

What this means for you? ​Basically, Windows 10 users on v1507 are advised to upgrade to Anniversary Update (v1607) before May 2017.

Hello,
My name is Daniel and I am having issues with the HOMEGROUP ever since the big update that came at the end of spring for windows 10.

First, my system is as follows:
there are 4 computers:
3 windows 10, 64 bits computers Home Edition, hardwired to the modem directly.
1 laptop windows 10 Home edition, connected wirelessly.

The problem that I have is as follows:
I have been using "Homegroup" for the past 3 years or so, and it always worked very well.
But ever since the "Creator's update" released either in April or may 2017, the Homegroup feature is broken.

My main computer which was the one who started the "Homegroup" got updated first, and after that, no other computer sees the homegroup.

However, I need to explain the following:
My main computer, who started the homegroup, still sees the "old homegroup" as active, AKA Ghost homegroup.
I have tried to delete it by following the steps here
