Yeah, just like now felt draining all my resources searching anywhere just to fix the issue of sound in my host. I think I need a break for this and have some coffee

I understand exactly what you mean.... I've been drinking a lot of coffee the last few days with a messy windows7 computer, updates and I'm trying to learn Linux at the same time. maybe you have seen my other threads about my windows computer.*hahaha*:)

Well I have the philosophy that if I'm being nice and happy, maybe it rubs off on others.
But I will not hide the fact that I also have a hot temper if someone is stupid or bitchy.

"Always be nice until it's time to not be nice". It is such a good expression as Patrick Swayze saying in the movie Road House.

I plan to put the list in my first post soon so everyone easily can find the list
Is there anyone else who has a point of view or would like to add something to the list I posted on page 3? KB-list
I intend to include the CMD file as dg1261 created include dg1261's description as goes with it.

Any thoughts??

Thanks, Marie, for the extensive list in post #30. I appreciate the brief description you added beside each KB update.

My preferred method of updating a clean install is via WSUS Offline Update, which downloads all currently active updates for offline installation on any system, not just the system on which the downloading is being done. It only concerns itself with critical/security updates, not the optional updates.

I've compared Marie's list with what WSUS Offline Update says are currently active updates, and only 11 of those on Marie's list appear to still be active:
KB971033
KB2670838
KB2830477
KB2834140
KB2882822
KB2923545
KB2976897
KB3042058
KB3086255
KB3159398
KB3161608
I think that implies the rest have been superceded and wouldn't be offered by WU anymore. It's also possible some on Marie's list might be categorized as optional (e.g., perhaps the time zone updates?), which could still be active but WSUS Offline isn't checking those.

Nevertheless, it's always preferable to have more information than too little, so Marie's legwork to pull together that list is appreciated. If nothing else, it can be useful for checking what updates might already be on your system and candidates for uninstallation.

If anyone is interested, I cut-and-pasted Marie's list (from KB894199 through KB3161647) and ran it through a quick perl script to convert it to a .cmd file that can be used to bulk uninstall the updates on Marie's list. (I didn't include Marie's monthly rollup list, because I think she only meant to list them, not necessarily uninstall them.)

To use the attached .cmd file, extract it and place it on your desktop. Right-click and choose to "Run as administrator". It will look for any updates on Marie's list and, if found, uninstall them. Finish with a system reboot.

Of course, it would be wise to make a backup image of your OS partition before doing this, just in case uninstalling one of those updates destabilizes your system. I tried the .cmd script on a Win7 VM, with no adverse effects, but better to be safe than sorry.
Hello again :)

To compliment your list of active KB updates, I was offered all of these from my list.
Some of them i did install.. It's not a pure bad, bad list, it's only a to be aware of the list

Note:: this is on a reinstalled HP with factory recovery discs OEM win7 Pro x64 SP1. So it may vary for you others with other OEM or retail installations.
This is with only IE9 installed. After I install IE11 it may be more.. But i have to wait 6 more hours so it becomes new date so I easy can identify sneaky KB's that comes with IE11
