December 2015 patch tuesday

Anyone seen these show up yet? Normally I come home from work and they are waiting but today I'm off and checking (just want to get them done and out of the way). It's 5.30 UK time but no sign of them yet on my machine. I might be jumping the gun a bit

Cheers, Wayne

I usually get Tuesday updates between 10:30-11:00am US time, which would be 6:30-7:00pm UK time.

Edit: Seem to be out already: https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/ms15-dec

I note from the link that one of the updates, KB3119075, relates to kernel-mode drivers. That's the category of update that is most prone to causing problems. Susan Bradley at Windows Secrets always recommends holding back on such updates until her further advice later in the month when it will be clear whether any problems have been encountered with them.

In any event, it is always best to avoid installing any updates for a good few days in order to give Microsoft time to withdraw or replace any rogue ones.

I personally always follow the discussion here each month as well as paying the nominal contribution to Windows Secrets in order to benefit from the Patch Watch articles Susan Bradley publishes twice per month. Woody Leonhard at Ask Woody is also a great source of advice on all things Windows including updates.

In addition to the above 12-8-15 updates, these KB's were also in the update. I have yet to install them because I do not know what they might do (W10 fears) They seem ok but, the KB 3112148 MS doesn't recognize, KB3112343 is a W10 upgrade file. Appreciate any comments Tx

I noticed MS update KB3112343 popped up earlier this month on 12/1 and I accidentally downloaded it but it seems to be innocuous. However, like all updates, proceed at your own risk.

I normally do not see the updates until Wednesday morning. I always wait until Saturday morning to download and install the updates after vetting them.

I also usually don't see the Patch Tuesday updates until the system is booted up the following morning when WU does the regular update check. Just for giggles, I just ran WU and instantly got error code 80244019 for the first time in my recorded history. Since I'm normally not one to leap into the quagmire that has become Windows Updates, I'm going to let this sleeping dog lie until a few days have passed. I'll check WU tomorrow after boot up, but I still won't download/install any of them for the rest of the week until I can check them out and see what others have experienced.

I also don't see them until I boot up my two machines on or after Wednesday morning (UK time).

I have 10 updates on one machine, the same plus an Office update on the other, as well as the usual MSRT on both. There's also a Silverlight update which is recommended on one machine and optional on the other (based on whether or not Silverlight is installed). Neither machine has the kernel-driver update mentioned above.

Time to sit back and see what transpires...

June 2015 Patch Tuesday updates: What do they do?
OK, so after getting spooked by the "hidden agenda" of a series of recent 7 updates that apparently track your computing habits and install Windows 10 nagware, I uninstalled all the updates on my computer and have decided to start from scratch. I just got a notice about a series of updates...

Have these reared their head yet? Won't be home for a few hours but am wondering if it's a heavy one - do the updates seem safe? Cheers. Wayne

Patch tuesday March 2015
Are these out yet? Not sure what time they arrive UK time. Normally see them when I get home late evening from work. Given last month's debacle over the visio studio update causing widespread carnage I wonder if any nightmares await us. More of a russian roultette tuesday than a patch tuesday...
