    Nowadays where to find high quality coders? morons appear to dominate every IT companies and consumers suffer from endless patches to their poor OS every few days. Keeping up with an OS becomes a profession to do. WTH.

    I thought it was Ground Hog Day the way those patches kept appearing and disappearing.

    I researched every recent "Important" non-security update available (when I use Microsoft Update) for Win 7 x64. All of these are checked by default (i.e. not optional) except for KB3021917. Here's my plan:

    KB3035583 (hide)
    KB2952664 (hide)
    KB3021917 (hide)
    KB3013531 (hide)
    KB2990214 (install)
    KB3022345 (hide)
    KB3020369 (install)
    KB3020370 (install)
    KB3045645 (install)

    You're welcome :). I haven't installed them yet, by the way.

    So, you're planning (at some time) to upgrade from Windows 7 to a later version of Windows

    No, not an in-place upgrade. If you're wondering why I plan to install KB2990214, it's because of this, and also because the file changes listed at KB2990214 all seem to be strictly Windows Update-related.

    I did the Win 7 x64 updates that were mentioned in post #13 as follows:
    1. KB2990214 alone (to test the new Windows Update client without waiting until next month's updates)
    2. the other updates
    3. In elevated command prompt, ran sfc /scannow to check for corruption. None was found.
