I manually checked for today's PT updates and had 4 important and 2 optional available.
I installed the 4 important updates, rebooted, and let mscoresvw recompile for the net framework update.
Re-booted, and the 2 optional updates i didn't install were no longer listed as available for me.
I got a notification of another new important update available for KB3177467.
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3177467
I installed KB3177467, and then the optionals are listed as available again.

No problems here so far.
Just weird that the optionals disappeared/reappeared, and another important was available.

I'm now seeing some weird changes with Notepad++, it didn't open my previous session correctly, and opens a new window, it should open a tab for me...

So when I go to the Security Bulletins page, I see Security Only and the Monthly Rollup downloads. Being as October is the first month of the unified update model, what is in the monthly rollup that isn't in the Security Only? Microsoft has cited the monthly rollups contain "reliability updates". What exactly are those? Drivers, new features?

I was also surprised that there was not a .NET monthly rollup. There were updates for .NET v3.5 but it appears that it was included in the Security Only download. Am I missing something there?

Well I don't know about this new update system but usually after installing updates and rebooting it takes a while before you get the correct missing/ optional updates showing up as available. The reason is that your machine needs to be re-scanned for installed updates and it can take a while. I've always found it best to wait for trustedinstaller.exe and svchost (netsvcs) to finish after a reboot before rechecking for updates.

Currently I have not received this months updates. They will probably arrive later or tomorrow here in the UK.

I made as system image backup yesterday after getting everything patched.

All my updates came through about an hour ago. So far have only installed the Office updates.

I had the two optional updates sitting in my list which came back as recommended, as a lot of 7 updates seem to these days.

So I got 5 updates. Similar to Sky Ranch, but with an extra one.

That one being KB3184143 to remove all things related to Windows 10 I presume. Should I install that one? (Not sure if that has any bugs to it or w/e, or can be trusted for that matter.)

Also I just realized that I have Microsoft framework 4.5.2 and 4.6.1 from September 22 in optional. Not sure why that was in there instead of important. So should I download that first before the 3.5.1 one? :'O

When I update anything; after reboot I watch the drive light. When it stops going crazy I check for updates again. Although Callender method using trustedinstaller.exe and svchost would work quite well.

When you reboot after Windows Updates it take a little time for Windows 7 to correctly installed some updates.
It usually take no longer that a minute for Windows 7 to catch up on my systems. Then I check for more updates.

Once the updates become fully cumulative, you won't be able to, unless you go for the security only update option. Or unless MS does leave some updates separate. But according to their articles they want to incorporate all past patches.

Even though MS said the W7 security-only package would only be available from the MS Update Catalog, here it is available as a download from their regular website ...

KB3192391

No need to stress out over Active-X / IE and that antiquated website.
