    Once again, it`s the same update, Microsoft just keeps throwing it at us.

    My preferred OS ? Where are we, what does it say in my specs ?

    AddRAM : A large list. I am comparing this with two other published lists to see if they are complete or to add to mine. I have the KB2952664 x2. But it is normal to have the others KB2952664(2014-2015) and not the last two(June-August ), right ? Sorry to repeat the question. I'm a noob at this
    It doesn't really matter which version(s) of KB2952664 you see, there are many. Just don't install any of them is my advice. Unless you're planning on installing 10. No need to worry about which is which. If you want daily telemetry runs (and in my case hard drive thrashing) then install it.

    There are now 13 versions of that update and I'm sure over the coming months there will be more. So, no need to concern yourself about which is which, just hide them when they next pop up. They won't get on your system unless you are set to install automatically.

    They're all garbage as far as I'm concerned.

    I was surprised to see i have installed more than one But the last two I have avoided them to install it.

    The KB3079904 is safe to install ? It seems to cause some problems.

    It`s totally up to you, I have it installed, hasn`t caused me any problems.

    Once again, You don`t have to install any updates you don`t want to.

    You can hide any Windows Updates to do with Windows 10.
    KB2952664 keeps reappearing in the update list, even if you have previously hidden it.

    I will stay with Windows 7 too. The only other O.S I would consider is Linux Mint.
    Linux Mint is nice.

    I have LM17.2 MATE (64 bit) installed alongside W7.

    I would advise you NOT to skip any of those marked as security updates. The others are completely optional but I'd never skip a security update. If you're concerned about any update, then wait for a week after it's been published before installing. This will give enough time to read up on any issues.
    Also do a system image of your C: Drive before you install them, if you're really concerned.

    Some of the same updates that I have hidden do appear again.
    I did register for Windows 10 update by clicking the Get Windows 10 icon but I changed my mind and I will not be installing the upgrade.

    The main reasons for not upgrading to Windows 10
    1/ I don't need or want to access the internet from the Start Menu
    2/ I don't like the tiles
    3/ I don't want to see advertising on the Start Menu

    Do you think Linux Mint would appeal to Windows 7 users?

    Maybe, I use Xubuntu as well as windows 7 & 10. The only thing I find Linux xfce mint doesn't display drives on the desktop like Xubuntu does for mounting and unmounting. There is probably a simple way to fix that

    I believe Zorin is a better fit for win-7 users
    Zorin OS - Home

    Yes there is a setting to not automatically mount drives in mint mate 17.1

    +1 on Zorin if you're looking for something similar to 7.
    Only tried it in VM's but I was very impressed.
