13 Jul 2015   #11

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

A weird update and I believe Optional.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Thank you all guys for your help to explain all. If these updates to upgrade to Win10 keep on coming after having them hidden already 3-4 times, I will keep on doing that if they come along again.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64

There's a decent article about this update here:-

New Policies in July's Windows Update Client to Stop Windows 10 Upgrades by Normal Users | Windows 10 content from Windows IT Pro

I have hidden the update on both my machines (as I had done with its previous version KB3050265).

Windows 7 Pro

KB3065987 will not install on my Windows 7 Pro computer. Every time it does and fails that one client computer will no longer back up to a HP Windows Home Server. I have wasted hours trying to resolve this issue. After the failure to load this update the computer fails to take a snapshot of its state so a backup can begin.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Even though I only have Windows 7 Home Premium, I can testify to one thing that KB3065987 actually does. It corrects an obvious memory leak in Windows Update that I have experienced, along with others:

Without this update, I can hit "Check for Updates" and watch svchost climb to 2GB of RAM allocation within seconds. With it, Windows Update behaves as I manually check for updates.

I think there is still some lingering issue, since my computer intermittently crashes and blames my wireless drivers, but only on some days Windows Update was scheduled to automatically do something. Still, it is much better than the previous problem.
