Wot!wot!wot!? Latest MS update.

Loaded the latest MS update last night, the usual monthly 200mb jobbie.
Start up this morning, things have changed.

The in-process indicator is blue instead of green.
The font in the Control Panel and Start box has changed.
The footer bar is deeper and somehow different.
When I hover over the Internet sign in the footer, it no longer shows me mini windows, instead there is a list.

When I open WLM, that looks different. The font is sharper, blacker, the highlight bar is bright blue. Are the thumbnail pics brighter? Hmmm...

In some ways it all looks better, but I don't like things being changed without even a by-your-leave, and most sinister, Malwarebytes (paid for) has vanished. The shortcut goes nowhere, the programme has been deleted.

Windows 7 Pro with the Classic gui. Desktop PC.

What's going on?
Is it just me?

Nothing changed for me on Win7 Pro SP1 after the updates and no programmes have gone missing.

This morning at 1015h, I reloaded Malwarebytes with my subscription key, and left it scanning. Returning at 1400h I found a blue screen, system dump with Kernel data inpage error. Even after reading MS' online explanation I don't really know what that means.

This not the first time that an MS update has apparently caused problems. After a failed post-update restart in 2015, my system notes say that it took 100 minutes online to MS Fix It to get the corrupted system mended.
I think I'll unload the latest Update, and leave it till the next Update round. Perhaps by then they'll have fixed whatever they did wrong.

Btw, locale was 2057. There is quite a lot about this here https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/win ... c57bc2c0f9, most of which goes quite over my head.

Aren't those notes about Win 10?

Not from 2011 they won't be :D

They're about Vista, OS Version 6.0.6002.2.2.0.256.6, although the full url rather gives it away too: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-update/bluescreen-error-locale-id-2057/3b5c8dc1-a7f7-498c-9f45-cec57bc2c0f9

However they could well also apply to Win 7 as its OS is NT 6.1...
