  1. Error Installing KB4579311


    I am trying to install KB4579311, but it is failing with the error below.


    Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x8024200B: Security Update for Windows KB4579311.


    Deleting the the SoftwareDistribution and catroot2 folders does not fix the issue.


    Please, can someone give an idea on how to fix this?

    :)

  4. Error Installing KB4579311

    Password not accepted after KB4579311 update installed

    Hi

    RE: Password not accepted after KB4579311 update

    Computer HP

    ED: Win 10 Home

    Ver: 2004 x64

    Installed: 19.06.20.

    OS Build: 19041.450

    Password not accepted after KB4579311 update, having tried the following basics six times:-

    Double checked correct PW

    Entered PW with Virtual screen keyboard

    Check Virtual keyboard was UK setting

    Changing PW in safe internet mode

    PW reset using USB

    All my above attempts failed while using KB4579311 update.

    Returned system to previous operating system prior to KB4579311 update computer accepts my PW and works all OK. Have paused win 10 updates for one month as it appears KB4579311 update is causing the issue.

    Having read previous MRDBeta work around reply post.

    KB4579311 is sitting in my Local Disk, Windows, SoftwareDistribution, Download folder. Is it worth me deleting KB4579311 and try to install the patches or through Windows 10
    updates again?

    OR

    Wait for a confirmed work around or update from MS as I need my computer for work and I'm not a computer expert?

    Regards

    Sam
