Windows 7: Why all these updates all of a sudden

Why all these updates all of a sudden

In the last two days I have received about 15+ updates (2 different batches) from Microsoft...?...(jpg attached) this is quite unusual ?

Is this connected in any way with the upcoming upgrade to Win 10 ? I have not received the upgrade on this machine yet...but another Win 7 Pro machine in the house had it right on after the 10 upgrade started shipping ?

No its not unusual...It's called Patch Tuesday and you'll have it every second tuesday of every month.

But seing the updates you want to install, looks you haven't for a while updated the .Net Framework 3.5.1.

Also the Kb3035583 is the one related to Windows 10 and you can choose to hide it or not.

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
