April’s Patch Tuesday brought two new updates to Windows 7 users. Security update KB4093108 and Monthly Rollup KB4093118 include a series of bug fixes that make the OS more stable and also add some security improvements to various Windows components.

As expected, these two updates don’t bring any new features. It is worth mentioning that the Windows Update service will install these updates on all computers, whether computers have the HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionQualityCompatcadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc registry setting or not.

Without further ado, let’s dive in and see what’s new in these patches.
