Not sure about doing KB2973351 of July Updates

If I read it right, I need either KB2871997 of May Updates or KB2973337 of July Updates.

I have 2871997 in my Hidden list & 2973337 showed up in my July Optionals.

I really don't want to have any problems installing 2973351 so which is my best bet of the other 2 to install 1st?

You do NOT need KB2871997 - it's a tweak to reduce the attack surface, and not an update, as such.
The other two are security updates which both need to be installed.

Thanks Noel, did the 2 of them approx. 2 hrs. ago & so far everything is okay.

Edit - can't give you rep. until I "spread some around".

No problem (I run into that roadblock myself often enough!)

Good luck!
