Win7 August 2017 patches - bugzz
Aug 14, 2017 - "... We now have solid reports of a -bug- in -both- of the Win-7 security patches for this month, KB 4034664* (the monthly rollup, installed by Windows Automatic Update) and KB 4034679** (the manual security-only patch). If you have a Win7 machine with two or more monitors, and there’s something weird happening with the second monitor, you may be able to solve the problem by uninstalling the bad patch..."

Patch Watch: August’s Follow-Up Fixes
Aug 22, 2017 - "I have a phrase I often use with technology: Keep the children on the playground the same age. This means -not- mixing older-and-younger groups; they have different skill levels and abilities. The same goes for .NET 4.7, applications and Windows 7. If you dig into various locations on the web you will see post install side effects such as the following:
Impacting Autocad and earlier versions as noted in a forum
.NET 4.7 crashing Quickbooks as noted on a blog
Possible issues with Arcgis Pro
May have issues with touchscreen inputs as notes in this post
Techsmith Snagit impact with .NET 4.7 as noted in this forum
I’ll be investigating and see if the 4.7 update is the trigger for these issues but in the meantime if you are impacted and want to block .NET 4.7 you can use a registry key as noted on the Ghacks site.
... What to do: Consider -blocking- .NET 4.7 on older operating systems.
Windows 10 1607 Side Effects: The release of 4034658 to Windows 10, version 1607 release had a few noticeable side effects: Naming it wiped-out-your-update-history. As an alternative, to see which quality updates have been applied, you can navigate to the inventory by going to Control Panel -> Programs -> “View Installed Updates.” In addition, the update had additional-side-effects of making any hidden updates pop back up again. So if you hid the 1703 update it -will- offer back up again. Finally in a network setting, WSUS servers will exhibit increased CPU, memory, and network utilization when Windows Update clients perform their first scan after installing KB4034658. Remember this only happens with the KB4034658* for Windows 10 1607 update."

Last Review: Aug 30, 2017 - Rev: 34 - "This update addresses an issue where UI elements, including menu bars, are missing from Windows and Java applications running on computers with multiple monitors (multimon). The issue affects console and Remote Desktop logons when the main monitor is -not- in the top left area of the monitor layout in Control Panel. Applications may also stop responding or not work properly when moved between monitors. This issue impacts the following releases:
2017-08 Monthly Rollup - KB4034664
2017-08 Security-only update - KB4034679
2017-08 Preview of Monthly Rollup - KB4034670
Before you install this update, you must install KB4034664 or KB4034679, and then apply this update... Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release..."
"... If you have problems with a Windows 7 second monitor after installing this month’s KB 4034664, there’s a new manual-install-only fix. But it’s buggy, too"
