Microsoft silently preparing your PC for Win 10

From The Inquirer:

"MICROSOFT is wasting no time in preparing for the arrival of its forthcoming bouncing baby operating system Windows 10.

A new optional update with the unremarkable name of KB3035583, and the equally unremarkable description - "This update enables additional capabilities for Windows Update notifications when new updates are available to the user" - has arrived in Windows Update for users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1."

Thank GEWB for the information.
It would be nice to know the KB number when it comes out so the whole world can look for it.

I just removed and hid KB2952664 and KB3035583 when they came back when Checking Windows Updates.

Ran Updates again and they both stay hid.
