Windows 7: KB 3146706 still an unchecked security update

KB 3146706 still an unchecked security update

This update came down last Tuesday. There was another thread opened here on it, but it was closed and determined solved. KB 3146706 is an important security update for W7, W8 and Vista. It is odd for an important security update to come in unchecked. If you have windows update set to automatically install updates, this security update will not get installed. MS still has not withdrawn the update or checked it.

Got to be something holding back the decision. Sure would like to know what it is.

Someone here posted that this update increased his boot time by 50%.

In any case I wouldn't worry too much if MS left it pending there is a good reason they did so, most likely they will
send out a new update to replace this one next month.

Hi,
I checked and installed it no big deal
I haven't seen any boot time increases on 3 machines.
Of course as all updates I made a system image before doing so

I've installed it, nothing bad to report yet. Had an increased boot time once after install, but after that it's been normal again. I was wondering why it was unticked though? Mistake by MS perhaps?

Lots of BSODs though. Seems it was originally received ticked for many users. Speculation is that this update does not play well on pirated Windows 7 systems. Probably unintended consequences, but MS is no doubt grinning big if this proves to be true.

Half the world's population that uses Windows are on pirated systems. We who paid, do not care.

Sounds to me that you do care
I'm not at all sure why though ?
We pay more because of them.

We pay their toll for them and that is unacceptable. I had a big grin on my ugly face when I read about this. I sure hope it is true and MS can leverage something from it. Even governments use pirated Windows in certain countries. I am not a big defender of MS methods, but I do support anything they do to solve this insidious problem. Using subdiffusion on this issue is OK with me.
