Microsoft Patch – The Update is Not Applicable to Your Computer

I received a question from a reader of a Microsoft Security Updates – Servicing Stack Version KB4022405 blog post pertaining to a Microsoft patch. They are receiving this “The update is not applicable to your computer” error message with a Microsft security updates. The only time I recall seeing this error is when I attempted to install a Windows update manually.

“hello in my pc this update gives me an error this update is not applicable in your computer how to fix it”

Also, I was trying to install the incorrect platform version. Meaning I was trying to install a Microsoft patch for x86 processors on a computer with an x64 processor and vice versa. I have never seen this error show up without me trying to manually install an update.

You want to make sure that you are installing updates for the correct version of Windows. Obviously, you cannot install a Microsoft patch for Windows ten on Microsoft windows 7 operating system and vice versa. Also, you want to become certain what type of processor your computer is using.

Try to verify if your computer has an x86 32 bit processor or a x64 64 bit processor. If you attempt to install a Microsoft patch developed for x86 32 bit on a computer with an x64 64 bit processor, you will see this error. In Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 you can view a “System” option in “Control Panel” to see what type of processor your computer whas manufactured with.

Microsoft claims that you may see this error for numerous other reason. One being that a newer update superseded an older update. What this means is that the older update is no longer required, because a newer update took its place so to speak.

You may receive this “The update is not applicable in your computer” error if the update you are trying to install is already installed. I already went over how the Microsoft patch you are trying to install is not correct for the computer architecture. Finally, your computer with Microsoft windows operating system might be missing a prerequisite update.

What this means is that the update you are trying to install, will NOT install because a previous update has to become installed first, before you can install this update that is causing this error.

Youtube ad Monetization – Request Manual Review Not Working

Another problem with YouTube ad monetization appears. This time this platform’s “Request manual review” button is no longer working. I am NOT the only YouTube content creator with this problem.

YouTube’s artificial intelligence or lack there of algorithm is flagging some videos as “Not suitable for most advertisers”. This problem has also been affecting countless YouTube content creators. Now a new problem arises when the request manual review button does not work.

When I click on this button, it goes from solid blue to greyed out, then the button appears again. Normally, after a few seconds this page refreshes itself and that blue request manual review button disappears. If you then look at that video details from video manager you will see a “Review requested” status.

A google product forum question was asked about this problem on August twenty seventh of this year. I did NOT start seeing this problem with the request manual review button until today. I have noticed more and more of my YouTube videos are being flagged as not suitable for most advertisers.

I have most of my videos getting flagged within twenty four to forty eight hours. However, around five older videos from even years ago, are now getting flagged. Some of those videos are now monetized after I submitted manual review requests.

One YouTuber emailed YouTube’s support team and received this response:

“Thanks for reaching out to YouTube Creator Support! I’ve consulted with our technical team, and they confirmed there is a technical issue affecting. The engineers are hard at work and will implement a solution as soon as they find the fix.

Unfortunately, at this point we don’t have a timeline on when the problem will be fixed, but I’ll keep you up to date as we have more information. We appreciate your patience and cooperation and please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.”

Later on in this forum question thread, YouTube claimed this problem was fixed around October seventeen. However, three days later now for the very first time, I cannot submit manual reviews. I tried multiple web browsers, more specifically succinctly Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

I made certain that I did NOT have any ad blockers enabled. However, as of this blog post creation I cannot submit request manual reviews. These types of intentional problems, at least to me, could cause some YouTube content creators to quit using YouTube.

One of my solutions is to start uploading my video content to other platforms like,, etc. I have tried clicking on request manual review more than once to no avail. However, I was able to get two videos submitted for manual review by clicking this button a sccond time.

However, I tried clicking this manual review button more than once on some other videos and it would not get submitted.

USB Keyboard Not Working – Troubleshooting

A viewer on my Anet Computers YouTube channel had a question pertaining to their USB keyboard not working. I assume they are using a Universal Serial Bus or a Personal System 2 keyboard. They did NOT stipulate it was an integrated laptop keyboard.

“i have tried switching plugs, num lock key, ctrl+alt+shift+del, uninstalling from device manager and restarting. none has work.?”


They tried some initial troubleshooting from a previous YouTube video I had made. They claimed that they tried different ports. You can try booting your computer into windows safe mode.

After your computer turns on and before Windows tries to boot, you want to press F8 until an advanced boot options menu opens. You can choose any of the safe mode options. See if your USB or PS2 style keyboard works.

If your keyboard works in any of the safe modes but not in normal Windows mode, then it could possibly be a drivers issue. They claimed that they already messed around with drivers and could not get this keyboard to work. You can also try booting off of some kind of live CD.

Many linux distributions have live compact discs that you can test to see if your keyboard works. Another test is to try to enter your computer Basic Input Output System. When your computer first turns on you can access a BIOS via an appropriate key.

Many times the F2 key will get you into your BIOS. What I am showing you is how to troubleshoot why your USB Keyboard Not Working. Perhaps, you have a faulty keyboard.

Another possibility is that malware, spyware, or virus(s) might actually have infected your computer. You can always run Microsoft Windows system tools like sfc and or chkdisk.

sfc /scannow
chkdsk /f /r

You can even attempt to reload your operating system and see if that solves your USB Keyboard Not Working.

Verizon Data Cap – Lifted With $10 Charge Per Line

Verizon Wireless announced a way for “unlimited” plan customers to lift their Verizon data cap. Starting November third two thousand seventeen, customers will be able to pay ten dollars to lift data useage bandwidth throttling instituted by Verizon Wireless a few months ago. Approximately, two months ago Verizon Wireless split their unlimited data plans into two seperate tiers.

One plan allowed 1080p video on tablets and 720p on smart devices. Their other plan only allowed 480p streaming. You can lift this restriction with a ten dollar per month additional payment.

However, this restriction will get lifted only per line. If you have multiple lines then you would have to pay ten dollars per each line you want this data throttling restriction lifted. For ten dollars you will be able to stream video up to 4K quality.

Just this year, in February, Verizon Wireless did NOT have such ridiculous data restrictions. Verizon is currently the most expensive provider when compared to the other three largest wireless providers. Now they expect you to pay an additional ten dollars per month to enjoy video quality that most other providers include as part of their monthly fee.

Amazon Delivery Policy – Includes Delivery When Your Not Home Incorporated now includes delivery when your not home with their Amazon delivery policy. Amazon is rolling out their Amazon key in home kit. I order from Amazon now and then and quite frankly this service creeps me out.

This kit includes a cloud camera to spy on you I mean provide security. Also, included is a smart lock. Amazon, will enter your home and deliver your package when your not there.

Amazon delivery drivers will obtain a code that expires. They will enter your home, drop off your package and then are supposed to lock your premise. The camera is supposed to videograph your deliveries.

Even if I received quite a few Amazon deliveries, I would never allow anyone into my premises without me being present. You will also receive email notifications of your delivery. You and those authorized get access to your home with this smart lock.

Only those with a code will be able to open up the smart lock and get access to your house key. Amazon is charging a whopping two hundred forty nine dollars for this device. Although, they claim you will receive a free installation by qualified technician.

This service is only available in select cities for Amazon prime members. The included smart cam takes 1080p video and even has night vision. You can keep your current dead bolt and keys or replace them.

Amazon claims that you can install this kit yourself by downloading an application to your smart device. Also, you get notified each time someone enters or exits your door. You can even lock and unlock your door from your smart device.

I can’t imagine this service will succeed. To me it is too ripe for abuse. I can just see the headlines when somebody gets their home robbed because of this service.
