    KB3083324 and others

    Here we go again.An optional update with no usable information by MS.IT WOULD BE HELPFUL,IF WINDOWS SECRETS DEVOTED MORE ATTENTION TO THESE UPDATES THAT KEEP COMING OUT,in the light of telemetry or other really unwanted information directed to MS.The latest,and I as many others seem to search for more info on Google(too) on the above mentioned optional update with no success,was looking for W Secrets to help out,but not this time,at least not yet.Can anyone help?Is it to be downloaded,or send it to the recycle bin?Thank you.

    I've noticed that MS seems to have a language of its own when you click on More info for each update - ambiguous is an understatement.

    Clearly Windows Secrets simply monitors and reports on the various releases of Windows Update patches according to feedback from members of the WSL forums.

    Actually KB3083324 is described by M$ as "Windows Update Client for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: September 2015" at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3083324 so should be installed.

    Under "Properties" at that page:

    Keywords:
    kbsurveynew kbfix atdownload kbexpertiseinter KB3083324

    Those are probably more helpful than anything else in the article, eh?

    I didn't get this update until today - not sure why they seem to be fragmented and can we expect some more when update Tuesday comes around.

    Actually the Update Client bit seemed to be a bit suspect to me but I installed it anyway.

    I also installed KB3083324 and KB3092627 with no ill effects as far as I know. But today I went to install them on my girlfriends computer and neither was listed in WU, curious about that as I wonder if they pulled them already?
    Update:
    Evidently MS pulled both of those right after issuing them, see post #19 of this thread.

    Updates will generally get covered by Susan Bradley's Patch Watch column which comes out twice a month, and as MS are now releasing updates at odd times during the month you may need to wait for a short while until the next column is published to get advice on the latest updates, especially if they are not released on the conventional "Patch Tuesday" (i.e. the second Tuesday of the month). There's usually no harm done if you simply ignore them until they get a mention. Each edition of Patch Watch has its own related discussion topic and if you feel there is an update that has been missed out of a particular edition then you should query it in the related discussion topic.
