windows 7

Microsoft has rolled out a handful updates for almost all valid versions of Windows. These updates are part of the Patch Tuesday. There are always certain known issues with OS updates. Even though Microsoft strictly scrutinizes all its patches and updates, there are still some notorious updates that bypass the scrutiny. The Patch Tuesday update for Windows 10 is a security update to Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 with Service pack 1. The update is making SMBv2 shares inaccessible once it is installed on the host.

The update KB4480968 has also been accompanied with similar bugs. For example, remote desktop access failure is one of the disappointing bugs that have followed the patch. These bugs are refraining users. Whose accounts are under Administrator tag, to access remote desktop. The main Administrator account is also affected. This error is not poking everyone though, but many users reported about this.

If you want to get rid of this mess, the easiest solution is to roll back to the initial version by uninstalling the update. You can also deal with the issue by tweaking the registry files. Since, this involves a certain risk of getting your system crashed down, always keep a data backup ready.  The same issues have been discussed and dealt with at German forums at

Open Command Prompt with administrator privileges and type the following command on your host Windows device:

reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\system /v LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

That’s all. Microsoft is expected to release a fix very soon.


Happiness is that best therapy. Use it to heal yourself and then others!
