Why do we need this update? Since today's updates are the last we will get, why do we need an update to make Windows Update work better?

I understand that Brink, but it appeared after I installed the latest quality update. Perhaps it failed the first time? In any case, the quality update succeeded without it. I actually did not intend to install the quality rollup, did it by accident. but since it succeeded, and my computer still works, it's all good as now I have it updated completely (except for that servicing stack one).

Hi Folks, before installing the win7 updates on 14 01 2020 I had 2 variations of Windows Classic Theme. One called Green other called White. My Desktop background on both was 'Slide Show' to change every thirty minutes, now sttuck on 'Solid Colour'. Now I have an unsaved theme that I can't delete when one of the others is selected.
My desktop picture is all white and I'm unable to set any picture as background.

This is exactly what happens with me with the last several monthly updates.
The Servicing Stack Update does no even show up until AFTER the current updates are successfully installed. Then and only then does the Servicing Stack update show up, so this goes back to your question, why have the final Servicing Stack Update AFTER the final update?

The wallpaper issue is happening for my company too. All pcs ,laptops or desktops, that were running windows 7 were affected. All are joined to a domain and we also have the extended support. They also all have a GPO put in place to change the wallpaper to a company logo. It changes the registry Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\Wallpaper to be C:\company.jpg.

I messed with what patch was doing it and KB4534314 was the culprit. Uninstall that patch and it will go back to normal. However due to the severity of the vulnerabilities it patches we can not just roll back that update. We looked into it a little more and removing the GPO does put the default wallpaper back into place but applying the GPO again sets it to black. Also when the GPO is taken off users can change the background and i tested the file we use on the C drive and it works fine so nothing is messed up with the file.

Has anyone else also experienced this in a work environment?
