New Windows Security Update Breaks Oculus

Hey guys, I just want to post here that after the windows security update today 7/13/18 my Rift was only displaying in one eye. I was terrified that it physically broke so I went through all the steps, tried reinstalling oculus software and all that jazz, but after reverting my windows updates back that fixed it. Hope this helps anyone else having this problem.

    I am having trouble trying to get mic in E:D since I had previously used Run As Admin. My first clean OS install with 1708 worked fine and upgrade to 1803. Needed a Clean OS with 1803 for another program to store an Activation Code as it has just a shot at it and needs Admin made viewing at Login Screen for this. This Synced all my Microsoft Settings and seems to have inherited the old E:D mic bug from before. Unless it was that only this time I was lazy to not disconnect all my USB devices upon installation and they conflicted as Rift has no ID (VoiceAttack finds it by name to resolve), my Creative XFI Soundcard CTAUD2K.SYS plus Rift's OCULUS119B.SYS don't have signed drivers. However, also on this install I did not switch OFF Windows Defender.
    My last resort is to try again with no USBs then install 1 by 1 and without anti-virus for Oculus install.
    Hopefully it isn't being transported by any Microsoft Syncing.

    What 13 July 2018 security update???  There has been nothing issued since 11 July 2018 for win10 1803 and this has not caused any problems with my system or Rift.  Are you on the Windows Insider program?  If so, I suggest to opt out of it.

    Didn't give me any issues, though.

    You mean it can break it. Obviously there are those of us it hasn't affected.

    Now there is an almost duplicate thread here; 
    https://forums.oculusvr.com/community/discussion/67641/windows-security-update-on-the-11-7-18-breaks-oculus-software-win7#latest

    Sounds like this is a Windows 7 problems, not Windows 10.  Maybe the mods should delete this thread since it does not explain that properly.
