Can I safely remove KB3112343 and KB3138612 with chkdsk running ?

Seems I read they are related to Win 10, I have " Never 10" installed but may have added it after these were installed.

thanks,

Yep, you beat me to it.

Also, the free Win10 offer and GWX ended nearly 2 months ago.
There's even an optional update for W7 to remove the MS GWX software.
(Darn, I cannot find the link at the moment...)

So, there's no need any longer for any of those 3rd-party Win10 blockers.

I went searching and found the 'removal tool' if you will, already resident on the HD. So I guess I don't have to do anything. I just don't share the trust of MS that others do, plus I hate a company that 'knows what's best for you.'

I'll let everything alone.

Thanks!

KB3138612 - Install or Hide?
Hi, Could someone tell me whether it's okay to install KB3138612? Windows Update rates it as 'Important', but I'm wary of patches like these as quite a few have been linked to Windows 10, which I'm trying to avoid. Would it be better to hide it? Thanks. :)
