Easy, no?
The monthly rollup states "This security update includes..." because it includes security updates, in addition to other updates.

Can Microsoft make it any more convoluted for novice computer users by calling one a security update and the other a security fix? What are they smoking?
End of rant.
I fully understand the difference. As I said, novice computer users I've talked to (unlike you and I) are having problems with Microsoft's choice of words. Not the first time Microsoft has used confusing names. Remember when Windows Defender was originally an anti-spyware only but now it's a full fledged anti-virus program? Or how about Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Hotmail, Windows Live Messenger, and MSN Hotmail?

I stand by my original position that a lot of confusion for novice computer users could be minimized if Microsoft put a little more thought into how they named their products.

I've no doubt that MS spent many hours dreaming up the naming scheme.

I noticed that it sometimes doesn't work. There are actually two links. See:

The old one that still needs IE is:

Microsoft Update Catalog

Script:
http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ 
I was under the impression that the site would automatically identify the browser being used like it did for me yesterday. Thanks for the links, I'll save them for future reference.

Hi there ,

I have not updated since April and my computer runs fine. My anti-spyware works well.

Then I thought, perhaps now the time is right to do these roll-up updates, so I had a look at what my mates in Seven Forums have experienced lately concerning Windows Update. That's why I found this thread and it is still not really straight forward and 100% foolproof so I think I wait a bit longer.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a peaceful 2017. Good health to all

What are the non-security updates in KB3207752. I had windows update to never check for updates, yet somehow it reverted back to automatically downloading and installing updates. It installed KB3207752. Is there anything unwanted in this update ?
