Installed Dot Net Framework Security Patches Repeatedly Prompts After Reboot

Recently my Windows 7 windows update kept prompting me to update dot Net framework security and quality rollup patch. It started off with KB4041083 for September 2017 and then later included KB4043766 for October 2017. No matter how many times I install, it will always show successful in "View Update History" but upon next boot up, I will get prompted again to install the same patches while other patches that I apply do not show up anymore. I initially tried to download KB4041083  from Microsoft Update Catalog, which gave me 4 separate patches to download: windows6.1-kb4019990-x64_35cc310e81ef23439ba0ec1f11d7b71dd34adfe5.msu ndp46-kb4040973-x64_5da041181051d83e3aad0950ef4b5c7db58520f7.exe windows6.1-kb4040980-x64_83282fb5210091802984ead0d4175879056d602c.msu ndp45-kb4040977-x64_adee32f77a471cf5c45509261546d68efc4181bd.exe

How to share a Xiaomi webcam/video camera to multiple Mi accounts

Update 11/12/18 : After a short conversation with peterherman in the comments regarding how to control sharing permissions , I realized two things. One, if you see different layouts, our versions are probably very different and its not just application home screen difference. Even the settings screens have changed, for example the screen caps below were from Mi Home IOS 3.19.0 but step 6 is no longer required if you are using a later Mi Home app version; Two, different Xiaomi web camera models may not have the exact same functions. So, these may explain why you would see different things from the screen caps below. Update 12/9/18 : Some readers have encountered issues with receiving invites, and solution given by ML and verified by Tan JJ suggests that both your source account and the account to share to needs to have the same region set to receive the invites. I now recall doing that step because initially the Xiaomi Home Security Camera that I wanted to register could not be found

Google Adsense Violation for Malicious Software

Image
I recently received an email from Google Adsense, complaining of new violation on another website of mine. In the last 24 hours: New violations were detected . As a result, ad serving has been restricted or disabled on pages where these violations of the AdSense Program Policies were found. I was confused to say the least, as I have not been making any new posts or changes recently. Logging into my Adsense account to check "Policy center", (Adsense > Left Panel > Settings > Policy center), it shows: "Violation: Malicious Software" with a funny web address containing a random and unrecognized "proxy9747.my-addr.org" plus one of my post links. This left me with even more ???.
