Not sure why it says the 9th, I got the Rollup offered to me on the 12th (usual patch Tuesday), before I hid it. Maybe MS releases them on the Update Catalog site a couple days before they're pushed...

The way things have been going lately, they'll fix one problem and introduce 2 more. The whole thing has been a PITA since they switched the update servicing model anyway. Should've just left it how...

Must admit, it's been a few years since I even used those forums for any Windows 7/8.1 advice. At least we still have seven/eightforums. These are my go to forums anyway. :D

It won't unfortunately. In a few years every electrical/tech product we buy will have SMART/AI features built into it. It's already getting that way now. Not something I'm looking forward to either....
