    Gwx Control Panel , Win10wiwi, and Windows updates

    I have 8.1 and I installed the Gwx Control Panel as suggested by Ask Woody and also installed the Win10wiwi program for the same thing that was in I think a blog on AskWoody and Infoworld. He didn't know the author well but from his checking thought it was ok. I read about it and installed it and actually think it is better than the GWX Control Panel. My question is. I have only received one Optional Udate about 5 days ago and nothing else. Have the Windows Updates for Nov. come out yet. I am trying to find out as I am worried that either of these programs have made it so Microsoft is not sending me Updates now???

    For other than Win 10 it's still the second Tuesday of the month, although I've recently had an out of cycle Optional one which was for KB3102810 which I've installed.

    Yeah, MS have been dropping in the odd out of cycle ones lately and especially the ones needed for Win 10 when you have previously hidden them - gotta look out for those sneaky ones

    Woody was a little dubious about Win10wiwi in the thread...

    Just neuter them. GWX Control Panel not only hides the really bad updates, it turns off all the programs they bring.

    That said, you should re-run GWX Control Panel every time you install any Microsoft patch.

    I haven’t summoned up the courage to run Win10wiwi, either.

    jwoods. Yea I know Woody was a little dubious but I got the impression he was leaning more towards it being ok. I read all of the gentleman that has the programs info on it and it had very very good instructions for the program which was good, simple and complete. And after the program runs ur told what Updates were deleted and other things with written explanation about that. I havent had any problems that I am aware of with both. Thanks.

    I don't think Woody has published any instructions for Win10wiwi.

    Bruce R. Sorry, I see I kinda wrote that wrong. I meant the gentleman that made the program had very good instructions, and lengthy and simple to understand and when done u get a list of what the program found as far as KB's that were either deleted or hidden I can't remember right now. Thanks for pointing my mistake out.
