Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Blames Asus for Windows Update Issues

Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has come out with an update for Windows 7 that seems to be creating more problems than it solves. It seems to affect some of those systems which have Asus motherboards. Microsoft is set to present at the JPMorgan Technology, Media and Telecom Conference that will be held on the 24th of this month.

Microsoft Corporation Ends Up Breaking PCs Instead of Fixing Them

The update in question is KB3133977. It is meant to be a security update for Windows 7 but has now become the cause for a problem. After it gets installed, it forces the OS to enable Secure Boot. Giving an explanation, a spokesperson of the firm said that the issue occurs because of how Asus made some of its motherboards with its own changes made to the Secure Boot feature. In other words, users facing such issues will have to contact Asus directly to have it solved.

As for solving the problem, Asus has advised its customers to boot into the BIOS. Then they simply have to disable the UEFI Security Boot option. However, users can also overcome the problem by changing the OS mode to ‘Other OS’ from within the BIOS.

That being said, Asus PC owners have not faced such an issue on Windows 10. But then again, this could have been the perfect opportunity for Microsoft to explain why it is important for users to update to Windows 10, as it is much more optimized and does not suffer from problems such as this due to regular updates, which are mostly released keeping the users’ feedback in mind.

The firm is known to be busy working on their hybrid laptop and tablet devices, namely the Surface Pro and Surface Book line. It has been already seen to be working on their phone models, especially their current mobile phone flagship, the Lumia series. Now, it has been rumored that Microsoft will also be adopting the features of their successful Surface Pro line to smartphone devices.

Browser Wars Gain Momentum

The browser scene is now more cut-throat than ever before. The rising heat had forced Microsoft to roll out a new browser in the form of Edge. The most recent browser to make it into the scene is called Vivaldi and is named after the firm that built it.

The growing number of browsers is bad news for development firms. But it is certainly good news for users because there are more options to choose from. Users now have the upper hand thanks to the growing competition. Developers are now working to make sure that browsers cater to the user’s needs. Most people prefer an interface that will be simple and easy to use. As such, most of the browsers come with clutter-free interfaces. Ads have also been a huge issue for users and most of the browsers have features to address this problem.

This battle also means that firms that make these browsers have to make versions for as many operating systems as possible. If a browser is supported by every OS in the market, then it will most likely attract a lot of people. Updates are also important to users. They are mainly used to fix any issues that may arise in the interface or performance.

The top browsers also make sure that they adhere to the latest Internet standards so that they can operate at efficient and satisfactory speeds. Some of the standards to consider include HTML compliance, Octane 2.0, Kraken JavaScript 1.1 and JetStream 1.1.
