    Is this the general opinion of others?
    Not mine - I had no problems uninstalling updates. Other Windows uninstalls - yes - I use Revo Uninstaller always

    I have never paid attention to the Update Numbers until just recently. The last 40 or so updates on my PC
    have the same number KB2310138. What is up with that?
    Not on my pc but then I read it has to do with Microsoft Security essentials and I don't have that.
    Someone else posted about it KB2310138 Update Keeps Reinstalling?

    Have you been bit flipped ?
    Don't know what exactly is meant by that.
    I read somewhere here to change the registry to:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\GWX]
    "DisableGWX"=dword:00000001

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
    "DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
    "AllowOSUpgrade"=dword:00000000
    "ReservationsAllowed"=dword:00000000
    The first entry was not in my registry but then I got rid of GWX some time ago
    The second was OK
    Now yesterday I changed
    "AllowOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001 to 00000000
    It is still OK

    Really don't like the look of that newest update:

    KB 3123862 eerily resembles Microsoft's earlier Get Windows 10 patch | InfoWorld

    If it's replacing files like Windows Explorer and Shell32, I have this horrible feeling it's going to start injecting Windows 10 ads into the actual explorer of Windows 7 and 8.1
    Of course, I'm just speculating and have no idea yet, but that one is DEFINITELY on my skip list.

    Doesn't look much more different than kb3112343
    Except for learn more about win-10 part...

    None of the update clients replace files like explorer, explorerframe, shell32 or the login screen. This is a completely new one.

    From the article:
    If you install the optional update, you find that KB 3123862 gives you brand-spanking-new copies of the following:

    Explorer.exe, the Windows File Explorer, and ExplorerFrame.dll, which contains supporting files -- icons, menus, bitmaps -- for Explorer.exe
    Shell32.dll, the heart of the Windows interface
    Authui.dll, which controls logins

    Why would it need to change core menus of Windows? Icons? Or the login screen? Sounds weird to me.

    Because end support has not ended as we were lead to believe M$ is adding new features when they have said they are done and only security patches are for win-7 :)

    All except for the one I posted are in the Optional section so it's a big skip for me
    I hardly ever look at them and I'm surely not going to load any of them willingly

    I'm not loading them either, I'm just pointing out that it sounds like a whole new update. As I haven't seen any of the previous Windows 10 updates change any of those files before. Even the annoying GWX doesn't alter those. And if people start seeing Windows 10 ads popping up on their explorer Windows or login screens, they're going to be mighty cheesed off!

    I avoided it as soon as I read "upgrade capabilities"

    I have all the Windows update clients installed. That was December's. There's been one for February that's superseded that. Can't remember the number at the moment though.

    KB2310138 must be in here 50 times or more. It says Microsoft Security Essentials. Any idea why it is in there so many times?
