How to get this update

Windows cumulative updates require that you install the latest servicing stack update (SSU) for your operating system before installing the latest cumulative update (LCU). This helps to mitigate potential issues while installing the LCU.

If you are using Windows Update, the latest SSU (KB3177467) will be offered to you automatically.

To get the stand-alone package for the latest SSU, go to the Microsoft Update Catalog.

I am confused. What is this a preview of? I thought the September rollup already came out. In fact, I already installed it. And had to do a System Restore because it slowed my computer down so badly. I then did the Security Only, and that seems to have worked.

These monthly updates are becoming too confusing and problematic. I'm tempted to go the route of some here who have stopped them altogether. Even restoring to an earlier image from a year ago. It's no wonder folks are fleeing to Linux.

Just ignore the Preview updates, they're classed as Optional anyway. They're basically just early access to the fixes in next months monthly rollup (without the security aspects). Just think of MS using you as a beta tester for next months rollup if you choose to install them. For home users they're a complete waste of time to install, in my opinion. If you're going down the rollup route, then it's better to wait until next month when the full rollup is out.

The rollups seem to cause more problems than they're worth. 7 is out of Mainstream support, so it isn't going to get any new features anyway.
I just stick with the Security-only updates + IE Cumulative Security updates every month. Although, I can see why some users have stopped installing them altogether - I've contemplated it myself a few times after some recent bork-ups I've had after installing certain updates!

Thank you. If my computer works ok, I'll call it good and only do the Security Updates. That's what I had been doing in the wake of GWX, then a few months ago I decided to follow someone's advice and try the full rollup. Was working ok for a while. Then again, I may have installed it too soon this month. I usually wait 2-3 weeks to see if there are problems. This time I only wai
ted about 10 days.
