I'm guessing the time zones updates are classed as important as they would be if you live in Azerbaijan. Also if you're travelling to another country.
I suppose they just keep it classified as that for all regions. I can't see why a time zone update would cause any problems though?

I also avoided KB3153731 a while back.
I have no need for them. I'm not going to drag my desk top there and I'm not going to be doing business in those places either.

Yea I believe the time zone additions are pretty normal just not sure why the article states optional :/
Sounds like another false classifications and should of really been recommended not important ?

One of these updates killed my gadget for The Weather Channel...seems unable to connect to server now.
Any idea which update is responsible?

It's been on my desktop for many many years...never an issue...thx MS!

Could be the Cumulative Security Update for IE (KB3154070). I don't know for sure though.
Somebody in another thread said it was affecting their Internet connection and everything was fine again after they uninstalled it.
Another thread said that it completely messed up their Internet Explorer as it wouldn't connect to any sites. I haven't had any issues, but I've never used the gadgets.

Had a laptop with current update have no internet whatsoever. Couldn't access LAN either. Linux boot and no such issues. Did a system restore to pre-update state wiping everything updated and allowed update to reapply. All is good for now.

The day to cut windows loose forever is approaching fast.
