    KB3179573 - install or not?


    Any thoughts on whether to install this optional update? Microsoft are fairly vague and just talk about 'some new improvements and fixes for Windows 7 Service Pack 1'.

    If it ain't broke...don't fix it.
    I say NOT!

    Hi,
    We were talking about this late round coming out
    What is KB3177723?

    The one you point to is a optional update for me so it will sit a while
    I did install the important one but I don't really see anything important about this one.

    Make a system image and install it.

    If you don't want any of the telemetry updates, don't install it.

    I noticed these two updates yesterday but haven't installed them yet. Is this one definitely confirmed as telemetry?

    If this is definitely telemetry related then not for me. I wish Microsoft were more specific. Simply talking vaguely about 'improvements and fixes' tells us nothing.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Hi,
    I didn't read anything about telemetry being in it

    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.

    It's a roll-up which means it's a combination of all the previous updates, which is why it will include the telemetry updates.

    Well I installed it. Possibly didn't need it on a home based machine. Anyway information on the files it updates is available to download in .csv format from a link in the support article:
