All SharePoint Sites Not working After Installed March 2015 Microsoft Patches

Operating Sytem: windows server 2003
Sharepoint Server : Sharepoint Server 2007
DB Server : MS SQL Server 2005
We have several Windows Server 2003 boxes available , and last night, tech admin guys had installed their Microsoft March 2013 Security patches around 12 installed.
This morning, users cannot access sharepoint sites they were previously able to, and are prompted for credentials. When entering their credentials, authentication seems to fail.
Users always frustrating even they has entered correct domain name,user name and password.
But I am an share point admin, I tested the sites inside the server using system account and normal users account, which is working fine.
When i am accessing the share point sites from other laptop or system using normal account, it is keep on prompting credentials.
I checked windows event logs,sharepoint logs and DB logs, we didnt get any clue regarding that issue, so we asked to tech admin to uninstall all Mar 2013 patches installed by last night, he only unistalled two web front end servers and DB servers and AD server. Then i tested again it is again prompting user name and password for normal users.


Finally the sites are working for all users, Because Tech admin should forget to uninstall the patches on the two Domain Controller server.
Mainly Uninstall this patches KB 3002657
After that We checked the share point sites can be accessible to all user's without prompting credentials
We also referred the below sites, thanks for your valuable suggestion and gave sleeping time by tonight otherwise ...we might be spent to research for other parameters, my courtesy in the below sites, bcos we found the root cause of the issue for installed  Mar 2015 patches denoted in the below site.

SharePoint Designer workflows never reflects the new changes

I've ran into this scenario a lot it seems. I'm not sure if it's an issue with SharePoint Designer, or SharePoint itself, but the following seems to occur often:
I create a Workflow in SharePoint Designer, and when I save it, it's good to go, and works as expected. However, when opening it later for edits in SPD, I can make changes to the workflow, very large ones, and save it, and on the SharePoint site, it shows as a new version of this workflow, but never reflects the new changes I made to it.
For instance, I created a simple one to test, simply an email gets sent to me when a new item is created in a list. Works fine. However, when I add an item lookup in the body of the email, save the workflow again, and create a new item in my list, I still get a blank email, not the new item lookup in the body of the email as expected.
Is there some kind of timer with SharePoint updating workflows? Am I missing something here?
For SharePoint Designer, the solution is similar to Dave's solution.
It seems SharePoint Designer saves local copies of DLLs from your servers, and although everything seems OK, this prevents it from updating the workflow (this is when custom activities are involved, which the question didn't mention).
To solve this issue for MOSS 2007:
  1. Close SharePoint Designer
  2. Go to
    Or, on older versions of windows:
    C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\WebSiteCache
  3. Delete either (choose one, based on how annoyed you are by now):
    1. All folders.
    2. The folder that "looks most like your site" (can be more than one: site, site(1), etc, and should be the bottom level site, not the root site)
    3. The relevant DLL in that folder.
  4. Start SharePoint Designer, save the workflow again, it should be ok.
To solve this issue for SharePoint 2013 or 2010:

Go to the folder and delete the files and folders

    C:\Users\LOginUse\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Web Server Extensions\Cache
      Before that take backup  and delete it,
        some sites ask to delete the files and folders in the below location, Don't try to delete, Because after deleting the files the existing workflows never open

        Hide left navigation panel without using Sharepoint designer

        The users ask to remove left navigation in the Sharepoint Master pages.
        You hust hide the left navigation using the below code with Content Editor

        Since this web part is just added to the home page, it doesn’t hide the
        left nav penal for other pages.

        Once move the code in the CEWP then set the chrome type to be “None”.

        windows sharepoint search service existing database name changed

        Resolution: Rename the database "WSS_Search_MIG" to some other name. SharePoint is trying to create a new search database and find the file already exists so its not able to overwrite the schema of that database.

        And start the Search Service from Central Administration -> Operations -> Services on server -> Click on the Windows Sharepoint Services Search service.
