I'm not having Windows Update problems so I don't know if new KB is a good thing or not.

I do all my Windows 7 updates manually.

Yea, I don't know what it's really about.
I might wait a couple of days and see if any issues are reported.
If no issues, then install it a test system.

For an update to add,

Sounds like untested pestware to me

Prolly has to do with upgrade to Win 10 RTM (when it becomes available) I read that upgrades will be available thru WU/MU... I think? Or is this not a new "thing"?

Does it.... do anything noticeable?

"enables additional capabilities for Windows Update notifications" is a tad too vague for my tastes tyvm. This one gets added to my 30 or so "Hidden" list alongside other goodies like:

"You cannot change the time and date if the time zone is set to Samoa"
"Update to support the new currency symbol for the Russian ruble in Windows
"

Yep I have those two hidden as well
Win-10,
I believe there's a toolkit to download to have 10 offered as a windows update in win-7 and 8.1 ?

Okay take a deep breath, it's story time.

Unable to install some updates and the things I did.

*Unable to install MSE update KB2994766/80070643
Tried to many things to list but finally removed MSE and went to MSE using I.E. 11.
Some sort of warning about ??? I allowed and downloaded a new MSE
It would not install and I tried many times.
Turned off Malwarebytes and it still wouldn't install.
Between these attempts did many reboots
Went to many Microsoft site looking for help. What a waste of time.
Remove all MSE anything and downloaded using Firefox and got the same results.

*Brain storm, I did a restore point before all this happened,well almost. Start and search would not work.
Restarted two more times and I was able to get to restore points and completed one.
MSE is working again so I updated it with out the KB installed.
Made sure Malwarebytes Premium was on but it was the older version 2.0.4.1028. Left it that way for the time being.
Checked Defender to make sure it was off
Checked Windows Firewall to make sure it was on.
Rebooted again.
Check for updates in W.U. and selected to download and install all of them.
Would not install KB2994766/MSE no matter how many times I tried.
** Careful I'm thinking again that possibly I have a hidden update that must be installed first.
I un-hide all hidden updates and ran another W.U. check.
Accepted all W.U. updates and downloaded and tried to install. No such luck.
Noticed that that Fxxxxxx Skype was the problem. So once again I hid Skype and unchecked it in msconfig.
Ran another W.U. check again.
I'm down to needing to KB2994766/MSE

It will not install Error 80070643

I have updated Malwarebytes to 2.1.4.1018 again.

Folks I have tried everything I can think of to install this MSE (KB) just because it is for MSE.
I really don't know what this KB does with MSE and I'm not having luck finding any information from Microsoft.

If you all can think of anything that I might of missed please advise me.
