If they pull an update, the next time you check for updates it'll be removed from the list.

It's a good idea to wait for a week or two with all MS updates lately anyway. I haven't installed this...

That's a blast from the past! I haven't used XP in years mate. I don't even have it in a VM now. Last XP VM I deleted in 2015. :D

I flogged my XP and Vista retail versions a couple of years ago.

You don't need to install the rollups and the Security-only updates, just install one or the other. The rollups already include the Security updates anyway, plus some additional fixes (none of which...

Thanks Iko. The only issue I hadn't really considered was issue 3.

Issue 1 I'm okay with and expected that to be the case. So long as it doesn't interfere with the security of the other account. ...

Okay, so here's my setup:
I have 2 separate Windows installs on 2 separate disks. I don't use dual-boot from 1 drive, I just switch the boot drive in the BIOS menu. It's setup like this:

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...

You mean the Security-only updates? Nobody gets offered those through Windows update anymore, since MS changed the update servicing model for 7/8.1 in late 2016. Only Security updates that were...

You don't get the Security-only updates through Windows update, they're manual install only.

You don't need them anyway if you install the rollups, as the security updates are already included...

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
