That doesn't sound paranoid to me at all. When I did have a Facebook account, I didn't add any random people to my account. If I got a friend request and didn't know them I just deleted it.

As far as I'm aware, I've not had a single Windows update install automatically since I started using Windows. I have had a WU update install with a 3rd party programme.

Have you installed any previous months rollups? It's possible the relevant files have already been included.

I'd love to see Facebook go the way of the Dodo. Hopefully it'd get that smug, untouchable look off Zuckerberg's face. Probably not though, with all the money he's made over the years.

I haven't installed a single rollup on either Windows 7 or 8.1 since they changed the Servicing model. Complete waste of time for Windows 7 anyway, as it's not even getting mainstream support...

I already had the update installed, but it still showed up in Windows Update and installed again. It's a newer version (v2).

I noticed they've re-issued the Servicing Stack update (KB3177467) as an Important update. It showed up in my Windows Update, even though I already have it installed. Only a couple of KB difference...

I've just set up a quick VM and installed both the newer Servicing Stack and Convenience Rollup without issue. So, it will install fine with the later SS installed. Whether it causes other issues...

I haven't used the Convenience rollup on any installs, but I was always under the impression that newer servicing stacks should supersede the older ones, so I don't see why the Convenience rollup...

Your PayPal should be fine LF. I bought a phone from Oneplus last year and paid with PP.

I phone up my banks once a year and tell them I've either lost or damaged my cards - so I get issued a new number regularly. I've never actually lost or damaged one though, but my banks must think...

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...

I've used a mixture of Office 2007 and LibreOffice. Although I've leaned more towards LibreOffice these days. I use it more than Office now, so I'll probably remove Office altogether soon.
