Windows 7: Wish to stop requests to install KB2952644

11 Nov 2016   #11

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

It's working and I get the option to install or not. Is there a website or forum area that gives good advice about current patches, updates and the like, which ones to install and which one to ignore?

Good to hear :)
You can always monitor the news section
Brink always posts monthly releases and everybody does a great deal to report issues or additional information about what's going on or security only patches that are released but those you'd have to manually install

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Brilliant, many thanks. It's hard to keep up. COBOL - gone. Ventura Publisher - vanished down Ventura Highway. XTree gold - not around. DOS - still here, even if folders are Dirs and xcopy has mutated into robocopy. Now keeping up with the patches et al is taking time. I'll peruse the link and attempt to make things work. Now, where's that FDD?

OEM Windows 7 Ult (x64) SP1


For the record:

There is no GWX or upgrade functionality contained in this update.

FWIW "telemetry" and data collection cuts both ways.
Quality assurance and improvement -- in software and in any other field -- relies on data.
MS cannot improve its products if it does not know about problems in the wild.
And those fruit-flavored computers (and Android devices) transmit data back to the Mother Ship, too.
It's not just a MS phenomenon.

But if you don't wish to participate in the CEIP and don't want this recommended update, just hide it (as previously suggested).

Technically DOS has been removed from Windows - it was last integrated into Windows ME. What remains (command prompt) is an emulator that uses DOS commands but it isn't a true OS. With 95 & 98 you could boot into DOS and run it as the OS but at that time Windows was built on it. Windows NT has never been built on DOS so the last Windows version with DOS was ME.
