    Question If Windows Update doesn't offer an update rollup, can I ignore it?

    Dell XPS8700, Win8.1, 64 bit. Clean install done Aug 16 using a Media Creation Tool download. Installing updates took 11 hours. Result: Boots, seems to be running ok. I am not being offered any of the rollups beyond KB2919355 [April rollup] which shows up in Installed Updates. I don't see KB3021910 [Apr 2015 Service Stack Update], May or June rollups [superseded by July rollup], July rollup [KB3172614], or Aug rollup [KB3179574]. In fact, I haven't had any updates offered by WU since the original build. I check for updates and everything seems ok. Should I just assume MS knows what is installed on my system from the MCT clean install? Do I just wait for the next rollup [Sep? Oct?] to be offered by WU? I'm really uncomfortable with an 'act of faith' that WU is on top of this.

    The best test for updates is to see if Malicious Software Removal Tool is offered - I have the August 2016 version showing, KB890830.

    You can list updates with this command. Start > Run, %comspec% /c wmic qfe list brief /format:htable >%temp%\u.html & %temp%\U.html
    As an example, my last update shows KB3167685, Adobe Flash Player Update.

    cheers, Paul
