My 3.5 MBPS Internet will accommodate that download for like 6 hours, I rather be receiving a physical copy of windows rather than digital download version.

It will happen. Just look to the Star Wars prequels. Didn't stop them from making a few billion dollars did they?

Btw, very unusual stuff, KB3035583 & KB2952664 are both showing as optional updates for Win7 Ultimate, but as important updates for Win7 Home Premium. I guess MS is treating their Ultimate customers a little better...

Or it could be that MS realise that Ultimate has a higher percentage of counterfeit copies out there than all the other versions put together so don't really care about it?

^That's funny b/c pirates seem to be having a better time/getting better features than legitimate license owners.

Having these updates being "sneaked" onto the system is the digital equivalent to getting "deep-throated"...

Thanks for the heads up, hasn't thought those were so sneaky updates. I'm on my way to uninstall too and to wait and see.

That strange, my downloaded only took 2-3 hours. I have around that speed. Were you using windows 10 or windows 7? Slower download speed for windows 10?

The speed will most likely not stay constant. For me, it depends on when I try to download anything. Early in the morning is good. I've hit 6+Mbps in the morning. After about 8pm, I'm lucky to get dial-up speed with all the people on the same tower trying to watch movies off the web.

We have a 20 Mbps connection. So, I don't know how good it will do.
