Windows Updates

3 February 2016


Microsoft has released non-critical updates for Windows 7 and 8.1 on Windows Update. They are listed in more detail in this Microsoft Article.


Importantly, as announced late last year by Microsoft, and now confirmed by Mary Jo Foley, starting this month, Windows 10 has become a Recommended update under Windows Update on Windows 7 and 8.1 systems. This means that if you don't pay careful attention, Windows 10 will automatically commence installation the next time you run Windows Update. Given the repeated and deceptive manner in which Microsoft is forcing Windows 10 onto Windows users, from this point forward I can only recommend that you use the free GWX Control Panel utility to successfully block these attempts.
