    Michael, you're welcome but all I did was put them in numerical order. The credit for the research and creating the list goes to AddRam.

    As I always waited a few days to install the patches this month, all patches were installed well except one: KB3086255
    I have tried to investigate the patch and apparently this disables something that could cause problems for certain programs and games. I read somewhere that some guys already corrected by themselves without the need to patch some time ago. That has time and recently corrected.

    What should be done about this patch, and I do not understand well :S
    Among the games that I have and that seem to be on the list is Red Alert 2 which I obtained by Origin.

    Yesterday I went out I failed to install the patch KB3086255 but now I've been able to install without problems :) Because what I read it is advisable to have installed this patch so I leave in the meantime.

    Is there any way to remove the failed attempt to update history ? :P



    Thanks GokAy for the link, I'll see if the Red Alert 2 was affected or not.

    If it is affected, you can temp enable and run the service while you play and stop it after the gaming session.

    I don't think you can remove a single update from the list, but it is not my expertise :)
    You can reset all together - Windows Update - Reset

    Red Alert 2 and its expansion work well. It seems that games Steam and Origin version are not affected.

    Interesting link GokAy, I didn't knew it was possible to do that. Thanks. I think I'll leave it as a sign that not everything works 100% :P Another link saved to favorites.

    I'm sick of battling this crap.
    It seems that this is the strategy MS is going to use to kill W7.

    I'm disabling Windows Update on everything.
    I'll just rely on AV and regular backups to protect my PC and VMs.

    This isn't really about trying to kill Windows 7.
    This same update applies to Windows 8.1 and you can't even play safedisc DRM games in Windows 10 at all without hacks.
    At least in Windows 7 and 8 they give you a temporary workaround for the issue.
    It's a pain in the butt yes. And no doubt will cause people issues with older games on disc. Safedisc and SecuROM have been a pain in the butt from day one! This doesn't make things any easier though.

    MS wants to see the W8 series killed off even more than they want to kill W7.

    At least W7 is successful and popular, whereas the W8 series is a total failure.
    The W8 series market performance is worse than Vista's was.
    I'm surprised that they haven't collect up all of the installer discs and buried them in the desert (like the legendary ET game).

    What I was alluding to is that the only way to stop this garbage is to disable WU, which means you may as well be using XP (i.e. no new updates will be available).

    If we are to believe the claims of MS (and others) this means that your PC is likely to trigger a "thermonuclear holocaust" within seconds of connecting it to the Internet.
