    It looks like August's KB3076895 is Borking Symantec security products and MS have released a 'Hotfix'.
    I also see from my not yet installed August MS updates that they haven't pulled this Borkdate.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    My Win7 machine does have KB3076895 but my Norton Security 22.5.2 isn't showing those symptoms. I guess I don't need that hotfix?

    I would agree with you, if it's not showing any problems I personally would leave it. If things do start happening you know there is a hotfix available.

    I have 6895 installed and have had Windows and App Freeze lately so decided to install 0/1/15 KB3092627 to see if it gets better even though i don't use Symantec stuff.

    @Krusty13 I think MS provide adequate information in this case.
    Personally, I don't feel the need to know exactly what the improvements to Windows Update are.

    Yeah, but with Microsoft's recent history of updating Win7, I would wonder what exactly Microsoft considers an "improvement".

    Good point!

    Maybe MS have released it as Optional for now to see if it creates problems. I wouldn't be surprised if it is released again soon as Important.

    On Widows 8.1 we got similar - KB3083325. It's optional and it has to do with Windwos Update Client. Hiding it would be wise decision IMO.

    "People all over the world are waking up this morning to a nice little present in their Windows 7 (and Server 2008 R2) Windows Update boxes – KB 3083324, which describes itself as “Windows Update Client for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: September 2015.” Here’s what the KB article says:

    This article describes an update that contains some improvements to Windows Update Client in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

    That’s it. If there’s any further description, I can’t find it. In particular, as of this writing anyway, it isn’t even listed in the official Windows Update catalog.

    There’s some conjecture that the patch may fix the intolerably long wait some people are experiencing when checking for updates in Win7.

    Fortunately, the patch is optional – it appears in the Windows Update list as an unchecked item in the Optional list".

    Re: KB3083324 got the same update notice. Win 7 64bit. Agree with above posts #'s 962-970 and will hide this update also.

    How can you guys make the decision to hide an update when it might actually improve or fix something without any downside? It seems that this guessing game with 7 could be a bit self-defeating. It's a sad state of affairs when you get to the point where you can't trust the OS vendor, and if the trust isn't there, might it not be better to dump it altogether and go with an alternative?

    Kerodo, if this helps you, this is what I do when in doubt. I take a screen capture of my Task Manager, and then go ahead with the update. If I don't see any additional processes, I let it live. I haven't yet done that with KB3083324 because I'm letting it simmer before pulling the pin on the grenade. ;)

    That sounds like a good thing, JRViejo. It seems like there must be some way to assess all these updates so that it doesn't drive people crazy. And I think we need to keep in mind that most updates ARE for improving the OS and fixing issues and bugs.
