    Yep I'm leaving that one alone
    It's in the optional section.
    Thought I saw a survey file in it but can't find that entry on it anymore :/

    August 16, 2016 — KB3179573 This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:

    • Improved performance on specific networks that have a high-bandwidth and low latency.
    • Addressed issue with users encountering a bugcheck, when trying to access a domain DFS namespace (for example, \\contoso.com\SYSVOL) on a computer that is configured to require mutual authentication (by using the UNC Hardened Access feature).

      This problem may occur if the selected domain controller has security update KB3161561 installed, and if the SmbServerNameHardeningLevel registry entry is configured to a non-zero value on the domain controller.

    For more info about how to get this update and a complete list of affected files, see KB3179573.




    July 21, 2016 — KB3172605 This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced and no new security updates are included. Key changes include:



    • Improved support in Microsoft Cryptographic Application Programming Interface (CryptoAPI) to help identify websites that use Secure Hash Algorithm 1 (SHA-1).
    • Addressed issue in Microsoft Secure Channel (SChannel) that sometime causes Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 connections to fail depending on whether the root certificate is configured as part of the certificate chain for server authentication.

    Okay boys and girls, I have had the honor of being the recipient of those two updates (9573 optional and 7723 important) they showed up this afternoon (08_19_16) and I hid them both.

    I hid 9573 because I'm not seeing any bugchecks and my patch Tuesday routine is working without the horrendous delays. And the 7723 because I just don't have any plans to either do business with or visit Egypt with my desktop.

    I may change my mind about 9573 because I do have KB3161561 installed and if the next patch Tuesday causes me problems I may have to rethink 9573's update. 9573 has a lot to do with networking, and there is a vague acknowledgement for 9753 superseding 1561.

    This may have been posted elsewhere, and a bit off topic, but it explains what to do if your updates are slow: Search for Windows Updates takes forever? - A possible solution


    Related;
    The October 2016 patch Tuesday and beyond looks to be a watershed:
    Further simplifying servicing models for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1

    That is all,

    Anak

    Hi,
    Yep and it was a compliment :)

    I never have much luck if I hide an Important update
    It usually screws up something eventually
