Computer Monitoring Error?

Established Member

A few days ago Windows Server 2019 Essentials starting reporting "Computer Monitoring Errors."   It appears that the hardcoded fwlink in Essentials: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=785361  is being forwarded to bing HTML for download rather than the expected: OnlineServicesConfigFile.xml file.  This is likely impacting prior versions of Windows Server also.

Seeing the same thing on WSE 2016. Expecting XML but the HTML contains a lowercase 'doctype' which is illegal in XML. Someone broke the link.
