    Is that something to do with the update?

    No, @Golden he was answering my question.

    Ah.....cheers.

    Sorry about that Golden. I should have quoted Groze's comment before I posted. Sometimes, I forget to do that.

    So, which are the ones I should hide? There are supposedly 3 of these sneaky updates. I've hidden KB3035583 ("recommended"), which is the "main" one, and then I've hidden "KB2990214" which is optional. What about "KB2952664" (also optional)? Is it related to one of these sneaky updates?

    It would seem to be a 'kissing cousin', this is from an April 2014 article:

    KB 2952664 for Windows 7, originally released Oct 14, 2014, and now re-released for at least the eighth time, is billed as a "Compatibility update for upgrading Windows 7." Microsoft's minimalist KB article is now up to version 7. As I mentioned on Oct 15, 2014, the patch had been released at least seven times at that point, on April 16, April 22, May 13, June 10, July 8, Aug. 12, and Oct. 14, 2014. This makes number eight (I think). Last October, here's what I said:
    Back in April, I speculated that KB 2952664 was a patch for Win7 to make it easier to perform in-place upgrades to Windows 8.1. Now it's starting to look like the patch may also ease the transition to Windows 10. Heaven only knows, your speculation is as good as mine.
