    Question MS yanks second botched Surface update ...

    MS yanks second botched Surface update ...

Microsoft keeps a list of the firmware changes on one obscure page on its website* - not in the Knowledge Base, -not- on the official Windows blog. That page has no indication at all that the botched patch has been pulled..."

    Exclamation MS Exchange Server 2010 - Workaround...

    FYI...

    Folder views are not updated when you arrange by categories in Outlook after you apply Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 3 Update Rollup 3 or Update Rollup 4
    - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2925273/en-us
    "Workaround:
    > To work around this problem when you sort messages by categories, you can update the folder view when you select a different folder view, such as Date (Conversations), and then return to the Categories view.
    > To work around this problem when it occurs only in online-mode in the Outlook client, you can use Outlook in cached mode. Or, if it is possible, you can use OWA to make the change to the folder view."
