Windows 7: What are all those other Microsoft updates?

What are all those other Microsoft updates?

Every month we and the rest of the world talk about Microsoft's monthly security patches. Less famous are the other updates Microsoft releases, usually twice a month, and mostly for the current versions of Windows.

Microsoft has long posted notice of their non-security updates in this Knowledge Base article (KB894199). Starting this month, Microsoft has added the security updates, and now it is a complete list of updates sent out through Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). For July, in addition to the six security updates, Microsoft released 33 non-security updates, six metadata changes to previously-released updates (all variations on the same update to the .NET Framework), and a new version of the Malicious Software Removal Tool.

Thanks for the heads-up of the Knowledge Base article (KB894199), since Microsoft Download center does not publish anymore since January 2014 those aside updates. Always good to bookmark.
