Has this update appeared in any other 64-Bit users update list yet? No sign of it appearing on any of my systems so far, and I have all the previous Security-only updates installed. I'm reluctant to download the offline installer and install quickly, after the the last couple months.

Still nothing here for me. I've never been offered the March rollup either. Even though I do hide them, it's still never been offered to me. Think that one might have been pulled though.

Think I'll hang on and see if it appears in my update list before I attempt installing it.

Sky Ranch - do you install the rollups or just the Security-only updates?

Rollups. This machine is the last one that has W7 64-bit installed.

I also received and installed today with no issues, on a laptop that I do install monthly rollup’s. It runs Win 7 pro (64 bit).

Friday night, it appeared in my Windows Update on this desktop PC (Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit). It installed normally without any problems as far as I know. I hope it was okay for me to install it. I mean because I still don't have that KB4088875 installed per your recommendation after the repeated failure trying to install KB4088875.

Odd.... still hasn't appeared for me! I wonder if it only appears for users who opt for the rollups?

However, this one did appear in my optional list https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...c-ip-address-s

Fixes one of the issues from the March rollup/Security-only updates. Says it should be installed PRIOR to the March rollup/security-only update. So, not sure why I've been offered it as I already have the March Security update installed!

Decided to follow MS instructions and see what happens (even though I haven't noticed any network issues).

Step 1 - Crossed fingers (very important!)

Step 2 - Removed the March Security-only update

Step 3 - Installed KB4099950

Step 4 - Reboot (didn't say it was required, but I did anyway)

Step 5 - Installed March Security-only update

Step 6 - Rebooted and grabbed a cuppa!

Step 7 - Happy to report that house hasn't blown up, so that's always a good sign!

I started Windows 7 as usual this morning (Jan 5 2018) and saw that an update was due. The update apparently proceeded as expected until notification that the computer must be restarted. It closed down showing "reconfiguring updates" and then restarted showing the motherboard splash screen, then...
