    What are you asking? The screen shots do not make it clear.

    cheers, Paul

    I'm talking about the security updates; are they okay to install, without worrying about getting Windows 10 auto-downloaded? And that telemetry stuff too?


    And also, how do you delete an attachment?

    MS security updates have, to date, been safe to install.
    If you want to stop the Windows 10 downloads try GWX Control Panel, mentioned here several times.
    Telemetry patches are listed in another post on this site.
    If, by attachment, you mean a picture you have posted here, try editing your post.

    cheers, Paul

    Cnon - Those are just security updates for .NET Framework and a cumulative update for Internet Explorer. As such, they are safe to install with no attached risk of Windows 10 being auto-downloaded.

    To delete an attachment, this is what to do (using Firefox):

    1. Edit your post.
    2. Delete the attachment code in your post (for example: [ ATTACH=CONFIG ] 41160 [ /ATTACH] ).
    3. Scroll further down to the Attachments section and click on the Manage Attachments button.

    4. Hover your mouse over the attachment(s) you want to remove and click on the X that appears in the top right corner of the attachment.

    Click to enlarge
    5. Click on the OK button to confirm the action.

    6. When you've finished deleting the attachments you want, click on the red X at the top right of the dialog. (Not the Done button.)
    7. Click on the Save Changes button to finish your editing.

    Hope this helps...

    we are starting to hear noise that KB3055034 is breaking the way Office 2010 on Windows 7 opens documents from SharePoint. I'll be reaching out to our MS TAM to find out if there is anything official from MS on this.
