      AKB2000003 Ongoing list of “Group B” monthly Security-only updates for Win7 and 8.1

      By @pkcano

      Published December 10 2019 rev 2.87

      IMPORTANT: Most Win7 and 8.1 customers would be well advised to install the Monthly Rollups as they appear. Your life will be much simpler. If you’re willing to bite the hand that feeds you, though, you can consider joining “Group B” and installing monthly Security-Only updates. There’s a full description of Group A and Group B in the patchocalypse article.

      “Group B” Security-Only patches are not cumulative. In order to be protected, you must install all of them. Every. Single. One. By hand. More than that, you have to install them in chronological order — the October patch, followed by the November patch, followed by the December patch, and so on.

      If you’re in Group B, you want to minimize Microsoft’s snooping. Turn off the Customer Experience Improvement Program before you begin. You’ll only have to do this once.
      Click Start > Control Panel > Action Center. On the left, click the link to Change Action Center settings. Under Related settings, click Customer Experience Improvement Program settings. Choose No, I don’t want to participate in the program. Click Save changes.

      If you’re in Group B, you want to avoid telemetry patches.

      The most obvious offenders for Win7 are

      KB2952664/KB3150513
      KB3021917
      KB3022345
      KB3068708
      KB3080149
      KB4493132/KB4524752 EOL nags

      And for Win 8.1, avoid:

      KB2976978/KB3150513
      KB3044374
      KB3068708
      KB3080149

      If you see one of those patches in your list of updates, UNCHECK the box next to the patch, so it won’t be installed.

      Here are the Security-only patches, starting in October 2016, when the “patchocalypse” took effect. Make sure you download and install the version that matches the “bittedness” of your machine. As of March 1, 2017 there is also a download patch for IE11. The patches for IE11 ARE CUMULATIVE.

      In general, when the time comes (which is to say, when the MS-DEFCON level reaches 3, 4 or 5), here’s how to install the Security-Only patches for Win 7 and 8.1.

      Step B1: Get your settings right.

      In Win7, click Start > Control Panel. In Win 8.1, press Win-X and choose Control Panel. Click System and Security. Under Windows Update, click the link marked “Turn automatic updating on or off.” Make sure Windows Update is set to “Never check for updates (not recommended),” then check the box marked “Give me updates for Microsoft products and check for new optional Microsoft software when I update Windows.” Uncheck the box marked “Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates” (yes, Group B is different from Group A), and click OK.

      Step B2. Get the Security-only patches and the Cumulative Update for IE11. 

      Download any patches in the following list that you haven’t yet installed. Choose Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Services. Scroll down, highlight the Windows Update Service, then at the top left click “Stop.” Double-click on the downloaded MSU file, and let the installer run its course. IF you have multiple security-only updates to install you do not have to reboot between installations, just close the box and install the next. Install the IE11 update last. Reboot the computer.

      Step B3: Check for updates.

      Back in the Control Panel, under Windows Update, click the link to Check for Updates. (You may have to click Check for Updates a second time.) The check takes many minutes. If it takes many hours, follow these steps.

      Step B4: Get rid of the Monthly Rollup.

      Click the links to look at the Important and Optional updates. Don’t check any unchecked boxes. If you see any entries marked “Monthly Quality Rollup,” uncheck the boxes — if you’re in Group B, you don’t want them. For heaven’s sake don’t ever check anything marked “Preview.” Be sure to uncheck any telemetry-related updates listed above. If you see any “Security and Quality Rollup for .Net Framework” boxes checked, leave them checked.

      Step B5: Get rid of problematic updates.

      The list of problematic updates changes every month, so you’ll have to watch the main AskWoody blog page for details. Look for MS-DEFCON posts; they’re clearly marked. In general, if you have no intention of updating this machine to Win10 in the near future, look for KB3150513 and uncheck the box.

      Step B6: Install the patches.

      Click the button marked Install Updates and follow the instructions. You’ll end up with Office patches, .Net patches, possible Adobe Flash fixes, Security Essentials update, and the usual MSRT scanner. Reboot the computer.

      Step B7: Wash, rinse, repeat.

      Go through Steps B3 to B6 again, to see if Windows Update picked up any new patches. Repeat until there aren’t any more additional (new) patches. When you’re done, you’re done, but be sure to watch this site next month to see when the unpaid beta testers are done.
