Today we released security updates to provide additional protections against malicious attackers. As a best practice, we encourage customers to apply security updates as soon as they are released.

System checked for updates at 12:38 A this morning. The result was a yellow warning display to "Check For Updates". WU is set for "Check for updates, but let me choose to download and install". Never had this warning message before. At 8:45 P, I started WU checking for updates. It finished at 8:53 P with 11 important and 2 optional updates. One of the optionals is KB2952664 (reissue?). I haven't had time to review the 11 important ones yet.

Yep got the same message
I have not manually checked
One update I hid last round was kb3112343 and was classified as Important
It was mostly about monitoring win-10 upgrades than anything so that's why I hid it
I figured that is why the message is there now to check for updates :/

9 security updates installed for me (after making a mandatory Macrium image, of course).

I didn't bother with the malicious software removal tool (I never do).

Checked my Windows Update settings (Check for updates but let me choose...) and GWX Control Panel afterwards to make sure nothing has changed.

Oh, and KB2952664 appeared AGAIN (Optional). And it's been hidden AGAIN. How many times is that now? 9? 10? I've lost count. I wish MS would give it a rest.

Funny thing is, I have Windows 10 Home which I run from time to time on a separate SSD inside this computer but that doesn't seem to deter them, does it?

KB3121212 (Kernel Update) failed on me 6 or more times; thru WU & standalone downloads from MS Catalog & WU Catalog... all failed. ran the WU troubleshooter, sfc /scannow reported corrupt but un-fixable errors...SURT reported no problems... tried to install DISM / Online with MSU extracted to .CAB: Error 87.

Finally bit the bullet and did a repair install and all is well now.

KB2952664 came back again. I really don't know how they snuck it in but they did.
I watch for it and to all checking it still got in.
Had to remove and hide again.
All my updates are done manually so it must be hiding within some other update.

Another revision of that update, it's on Version 16 now so expect to see it reappearing again in the future.

Not sure why you even look at optional updates Jack ?
I don't bother hiding some updates and that is one of them
Along with 7 others,

I strongly recommend that you don't install kernel updates for at least a few days after they are first offered. They are the specific type of update most prone to breaking a computer and it's best to wait until the dust has settled so that if there's a problem it can be withdrawn or replaced before you risk getting that problem.
