    Microsoft Updates now missing.

    So back in October I got a bunch of updates on all my Windows 7 systems. As usual I wait for the news letter and then read what Susan has to say. Now I made a list of the updates back in October, but I never got around to installing them.

    So this month I got the newsletter and I am going over the updates and I saw something I am not sure of. Two updates in particular from October; KB3000061 and KB3000869. These were on my October to install listing and I see them mentioned in Susan's article so when I refreshed my updates, I now these two are missing. I checked the update log and they were not installed by me so not sure and I also check in the Windows Uninstall a Program area to see if these got installed and they were not.

    Reading on, these seem to be very important; kernel updates per the newsletter so I am wondering would it be safe for me to go to the Microsoft Download Center to get these updates so I can install them? They are still at the Microsoft Download Website for download. Or should I just ignore it; figuring all my systems hammered out what I needed and these were not needed any longer.

    Thanks

    KB3000061 had an unfortunate tendency to refuse to install and was withdrawn. KB3000869 has probably been included in a later roll-up. Go to Control Panel>Windows Updates and check that you are up to date.

    Did anybody keep a short list of "fishface" updates to avoid? I think my short list is outdated. [mods, how come delete post is not working? Twice, I cannot delete my two un-needed posts.]
