How to get rid of the annoying POPUP about Jan 2020 Guide going away

#1

Post by iggytech » Fri Nov 29, 2019 4:40 am

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this annoying popup screen in my Media TV Guide?
It just recently started and I know about Jan 2020 that MS will no long supply a guide for us.
But must I be told every time I want to watch TV. LOL
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

I never installed 'KB4493132' so I've never gotten this, but uninstalling the patch should do the trick:

Thank you. I knew it was one of those but never wrote the KB# down any where. I have it now and works.
Thank you again.

Now I need to figure out when the world ends and I'm forced to move to Win10 what I will do with my TV Tuner card.
May have to go to WinTV V10 from Hauppauge to watch TV.
Guess I have to buy a new code for the new WinTV Version 10 as past version codes will not work on the new V10.

What if you've never installed KB4493132? I've searched the installed update list and it comes up empty.

Did you 'Search Installed Updates' for '4493132'? I typically come up empty trying to find things visually in that list (old eyes), or including 'KB'. According to the linked article, "KB4493132 was first released on March 19, 2019...".

I did the search but with no results.

Its suggested in another thread to uninstall KB4524752. This one I do have installed.

Edit: Removing KB4524752 seems to have eliminated it for me.

KB4493132 is the patch that enables "Win7 no longer supported" warnings, but I don't know if it is for the WMC guide warning.

Do we have confirmation that removing this patch works to get rid the the WMC specific message? This patch was initially released in March, and I don't know that they even knew they were getting rid of the guide back then (if so why not put out an announcement sooner?)

KB # may also vary depending on x86/x64 version of Win7. Only installing 'Ask Woody's' recommended 'Security Only' patches for the last year, or so, but I do read descriptions of all 'offered' patches. Haven't seen anything WMC-specific in years.

But based on this:

https://softwaretested.com/windows/what ... s-for-you/

, I might speculate:

- This may only apply to the 'Update to Windows 10' nags.

- The WMC nags are only being pushed to those still using the native guide (& maybe those who didn't remove it as completely as they think when switching to an alternative?).

I abandoned the native guide over a year ago & never installed KB4493132, so... who knows? I've never seen either nag.

This popup started displaying for me only in the last day or so. I had already removed the old guide and switched to using EPG123 about a month ago. Something must have triggered this happening again.

Looks like this came with the recent "Servicing Stack" update which I got on 11/27/19. But when I look at that update, there is no option to uninstall it.

Found this post "WMC Programming Guide Warning" (viewtopic.php?p=134265#p134265) and took those steps, now it has gone away. Hopefully, forever.
