Windows 7: Windows calls KB3193414 update important, but...

Windows calls KB3193414 update important, but...

Windows calls KB3193414 update important, but when I click for more details, it just takes me to a page that's an advertisement to buy Windows 10. [https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows] I don't want Windows 10 because I'm still using media center and one piece of hardware I don't want to buy again.

Does anyone know more about this update? When I check MSE, it says it's up to date.

Can you take a screenshot of your windows update? That doesn't seem like a valid update number. Haven't seen that one on any of my systems. Google search doesn't bring up anything for me.

I'm seeing this update too, and the lack of a proper KB article on microsoft.com seems a little odd. It's not the first time that an update has been pushed out before the KB article was available, but personally I've never seen in taking so long.

The fact that there are only a few google search results for some Japanese blogs, and that the official MSE download site lists 4.9.0218.0 (which I do have installed) as the current version, makes me even more suspicious

And then there's this

Is this Microsoft security essentails update genuine? - Microsoft Community

While I could imagine that as a possible cause, ie multiple languages installed, therefore you receive a locale specific update (earlier than others), I do not have any additional languages installed, let alone any chinese or multi-language packs, and the lack of a KB article is still suspicious to me, I mean, people over in China like some technical details too, don't they?

Also the linked thread in the chinese MS support forums doesn't seem to prove any validity... could the KB article possibly be region restricted?

I don't use MSE so those updates never show up for me. It looks like an update to the MSE program, but it is strange that Googling the KB number only brings me to Chinese description too.
I can't see how anything malicious can be pushed through Windows Update, but you may want to hold off for a few days until somebody can confirm what it actually is.
If you download MSE directly from the site, what is the latest version number?

Ive heard it has something about PCs that have more than one language installed. Its intended for the Chinese language, but for some reason Microsoft put it and my PC (Ive got English and Spanish installed and I can go back and forth). Also, seems like it updated all by itself too. I did not give it permission. Kinda like a Windows 10 thing last year. Microsoft! Geez............

Correct, it does remove the scan file(s)/folder(s) option from Explorer's right click context menu.

Before this update:
Windows calls KB3193414 update important, but...-mse-4.9.218.0.png

After this update:
Windows calls KB3193414 update important, but...-mse-4.10.205.0.png

"Send to" work around:
Windows calls KB3193414 update important, but...-mse-bat.png
This work around works for entire folders too. Right click on the file of folder of interest and "send" that file or folder to the batch file mentioned below.

Create a batch file with these two lines:
Code:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\MpCmdRun.exe" -Scan -ScanType 3 -File %1
pause
Scans a single file or single folder.

Or use these two lines in your batch file:
Code:
for %%i in (%*) do "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\MpCmdRun.exe" -Scan -ScanType 3 -File %%1
pause
Scans multiple files or multiple folders. But you might reach a limit.



Put that batch file in your "Send to" folder.
Code:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

I have seen updates come out with no info.
In a day or two, this link might have some info:
