Windows 7: A hidden Patch Tuesday gem: A Windows 7 hotfix rollup

LOL... It's primarily for IT managers but it can be run by anyone on a single machine. It's pretty simple--Just download it, install it then run as administrator. The report can be viewed or printed. If viewed, there's links on the report that show you how to correct any of the problems.

This is just part of the report when viewed. The one "missing" roll-up is for IE-9 which I don't use. I had it loaded for a while to try it out but went back to IE-8.

Here's one reason why counts don't mean anything when just comparing counts. Machines differ too widely with installed applications. If you go just by counts, I'd say you guys are missing about 100 or so.

Can anyone give me a vague idea about how long a normal scan with MBSA should take? My PC is 1yr old & other info is in 'My System Specs. I already XL'd the scan once after not seeing anything in 40 mins.

Thanx.

never mind, just now finished from my re-start at 3:47.

Ops! Yeah, I forgot to warn folks about that. It has to analyze your machine then check the updates with Microsoft's catalogs so it will take a while. You can still do other things while it's running. I wasn't sure how long it took on my machine. After waiting about ten minutes, I went on to other things then came back and it was finished. For sure, you have more patients than me.

Yup, after a few mins, of 2nd try I just minimized it & came back to forum to snoop around & check on my other posts & had just finished the one above when I noticed the color change of MBSA in the tray, hence my edit.
Now if only I could get a scrolling screen capture of results so I could start a new thread & be a pest full of questions.

There's an option along the bottom to copy the report to the clipboard. You don't have to re-run the analysis as the old reports are saved. Just start it and click on View existing security scan reports select the report. Copy it to the clipboard then paste it in a thread. Use the wrap text with "Code Tags" and it will become scrollable text in your message. Highlight the text you want then click on the # sign in the tools area of the message box.

I didn't really look at mine that closely so you might want to review it for non-public info first. Just copy to NotePad to review/edit then select and copy again before pasting to your message.

Afaik, you can just leave them. They take a bit of disk space.

I am doing this so I can get a more accurate list of updates to put in my DIY 7sp2.

I have made one already which works very well.

I looked at it again, added a few new updates and took out some superseded.

Done it now. Great.

That is why Danny's info about the number of updates was of interest. I might have asked him for a list for comparison. He installed recently and only has 111.Therefore he probably doesn't have a whole bunch of Office or other optionals. I could have looked at that, checked the kb info and perhaps picked up anything that was missing from mine. I don't think I need to now.

Just tested by installing from my diy sp2 image. Spot on. I used lists from Steve, komm and burf to help.
Might need to adjust Steves uls to incorporate what I did.

I just uninstalled about 25 superseded. WU has not offered tham again. I don't use defender or msrt , so it isn't those.
How do you find superseded updates that can be uninstalled?
Is it better to uninstall them, or just leave them installed "as-is" ... for reliability, performance, etc.?

I got everything green besides two and about the updates I already knew about it since I have it like that on purpose because sometimes when i'm online gaming it will start downloading updates and make lag. The 2nd I have no idea what's for, I don't think I need it by reading what it is sounds something more for like a public pc idk. Uh the firewall I just use my comodo firewall so yea.

I believe if you install a fresh w7 SP1 there will likely be about 100 updates with no software installed.

Thanx. But I don't understand all the ins & outs of all that stuff at top of posting area, 'wrap text,Code Tags,etc'. I remember once I wanted to underline something I was posting & when I clicked on U, I got symbols that had me lost so all I know is to just type, do smileys, & attach files. Also think that if I want to ask more questions about MBSA I should move to a different area of the board 'cuz most of the replies like the last 3 are about the 'Hidden Gem' which is waaay over my head & just causing me more confusion. I shouldn't have jumped in here with my question in the 1st place, my bad.
