Microsoft change location of some security updates May Patch Tuesday

Quote:
Microsoft is going to cease its current practice of making all security updates available from both the Microsoft Download Center and the Microsoft Update Catalog.

In a very brief April 29 blog post, company officials noted the coming change, which takes effect next Tuesday, May 10 -- which is Patch Tuesday. Moving forward, security bulletins will point to the Microsoft Update Catalog when updates are not listed on the company's Download Center website.

From Microsoft's post:

"Updates have historically been published on both the Microsoft Download Center and the Microsoft Update Catalog and Security Bulletins linked directly to update packages on the Microsoft Download Center. Starting May 10, some updates will no longer be available from the Microsoft Download Center."
What Microsoft's blog post doesn't say is why the company is making this change.

That's right, I had to hide it again yesterday. MS seem to be working on the basis if you don't succeed try & try again, but this is becoming beyond a joke.

What else can you do to stop it from installing. KB3035583 is one the GWX (Get Windows 10) installation files.

If I hide the KB it will not be offered again for quite some time.
