kb2798162 is that really needed? I see that as a wasted update in my opinion. I wouldn't call it Important though.

Groze is this a chat session or are you trying to fix something?
Do you have a problem?

Run this tutorial by Bare Foot Kid. If when done and kb2798162 is still there just leave it alone.

Ugh never mind, I know what causes the problem at least I can restore from backup in no time, when I am ready. In the past I never read updates, I just started doing that. What happened is for some strange reason kb2775511 windows catalog update removed the kb2798162 windows update.


Layback bear,
I am not trying fix anything. It was a rant. I still think kb2798162 is waste of time and space in my opinion. I didn't realize how old that 2798162 was tell Thrashzone sort of pointed that out.

A very old version update to Internet explorer,
Just how out of date and how many updates have you not installed ?
Open internet explorer and click on Gear symbol and About internet explorer or Alt+HA
Post all of the information
Cheers.

Didn't anyone read my post? It is caused by kb2775511. I installed kb2775511 then later windows update found kb2798162 listed in the windows update. I just assume it was new. I am going to restore from backup just in case kb2775511 may have removed other updates. There is one other update that is hidden because I have Oem that been pre-activated and that update is not needed.

Sorry if I appeared rude, I didn't mean that. I am not like that. I just got done restoring from backups in the process of running windows update to get updated, then going to back up again. However, I hope the kb2798162 old update does not popup this time.

How was or is windows update system showing it as Important/ Recommended or Optional ?
I don't see or have it installed is why I'm asking but I also did a clean install only a month in a half ago too.

You say it's not Important but does Microsoft ?
