    Release Date: March 14, 2017
    Please note the following information regarding the security updates:

    Beginning with the October 2016 release, Microsoft is changing the update servicing model for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2012 R2. For more information, please see this Microsoft Technet article, Further simplifying servicing models forWindows 7 and Windows 8.1.
    Windows 10 updates are cumulative. The monthly security release includes all security fixes for vulnerabilities that affect Windows 10, in addition to non-security updates. The updates are available via the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    In addition to security changes for the vulnerabilities, updates include defense-in-depth updates to help improve security-related features

    Note As a reminder, the Security Updates Guide will be replacing security bulletins. Please see our blog post, Furthering our commitment to security updates, for more details."

    But only for users which are installing a windows update for the first time. Subsequent updates should be much smaller

    The download didn't take that long but the update took a very long time. Don't know what it was doing for all that time since there wasn't a lot of disk activity.

    Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4016635
    This is the third cumulative update shipped in 10 days

    -------------------------------
    Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 cumulative update KB4016635 for Anniversary Update systems a few hours ago, but for some reason, it looks like some PCs aren’t getting it via Windows Update, while others receive it normally just like any other update.
