    MS Quick Assist bug


    I discovered a bug on my laptop and my colleagues laptops during usage of the MS Quick Assist tool. We have 3 languages installed for keyboard typing on our laptops English, Russian and Ukrainian. But, after finishing of the connection of MS Quick Assist, for some reason, one of the languages is disappearing from the list of typing in most cases is the Ukrainian language is disappearing. It looks like it is available for typing in the settings, but you can't choose it. After the laptop reboot, everything back to normal.

    BTW We already performed scans for the viruses on our laptops using different AV solution vendors.

    Could you help us?

    Quick Assist not working

    Good diagnostic step.

    You've tried disabling 3rd party program startups, but there could be more things starting beyond those listed in the task manager startup list, if that's what you used.

    Ideally you would have hands on access to both PCs... but that's not so. All credit to them for creating a new user account etc.

    If you wished to disable more startups on the problem account you could use Autoruns (free from MS). But that seems asking a bit much of someone else remotely.

    Of course, the problem could have nothing whatsoever to do with startups... you might want to check all services are default, for example, in particular those necessary for this.

    Presumably it's not been blocked by the firewall:

    - some unfinished discussion as to whether both accounts had to be MS accounts or not.

    I found this:
    Windows 10 Quick Assist: Helpful Remote Assistance App or Potential Vulnerability? — Steeves and Associates

    This gives useful detail on how it works. For example, it uses port 443, so you need to check that's not blocked.
    It also indicates how to block it- so you can check that doesn't apply.

    Hi Henry,

    It's possible that your computer's Internet Options is not set properly, that's why you're experiencing issues with Quick Assist. Kindly make sure that your computer is allowed to save encrypted pages by following these steps:

    • Type internet options on the search bar.
    • Click on Internet Options.
    • Click on Advanced.
    • Scroll down, and make sure that Do not save encrypted pages to disk is unchecked.
    • Click OK.

    Once done with the steps, try to use Quick Assist again, then check if the issue persists.

    Don't hesitate to reach out to us if you need further assistance with your concern.
