      Better still, KB3033583 is being shown as an ‘important’ update by WU 8.1 – but, when I clicked to show the updates, it still listed as ‘recommended’


    • #46927

      Correction – that’s KB3035583 – sight garble.

    • #46928

      I checked, and yep, it’s set as a Recommended Update.

    • #46929

      On my Windows 7-64 Pro SP1 machine it showed as Optional, however when you clicked on it the text on the right said it was “recommended update” and it was preceded by a yellow star! However, on my system, it shows up in Windows Update as still optional and was NOT pre-checked for install. I made a screen shot.

    • #46930

      Listed as recommended, unchecked – Windows 7 64-bit

    • #46931

      Can confirm it was listed on 3 Win7 systems here as recommended and unchecked. Came out within the last few hours as I had checked earlier

    • #46932

      Thank you Woody for all that you do.

    • #46933

      Win7 64bit. Have had KB3035583 hidden for months. Wasn’t in WU Optional patch list yesterday. Showed up today in WU Optional patch list as “Recommended” (NOT checked).

    • #46934

      I have Win7 through Windows Parallels on my MacBook Pro by Apple. Today 3035583 reappeared in the Optional group as a recommended update. I used right-click to hide it, but who knows for how long that will last.

    • #46935

      I have Win 7 64 bit, and the patch is in my Windows Update list, unchecked, under Optional.

      >On my sole surviving Windows 8.1 machine, KB 3035583 appears as optional, unchecked, italicized.

      It’s high time to re-evaluate whether you want Windows Updates on your older system(s).

      Keep in mind…

      This is today’s Microsoft releasing these updates…

      They are more aggressive than ever w/regard to pushing you to Win 10.

      They have entered a time where they document things more tersely than ever – if at all..

      They have decided to push testing onto users (think “rings” and “deferred upgrades”).

      Their recent work is mostly application programming; they’re not doing hard-core OS work much.

      Tell me again why you would want to invite updates into an older Windows system?

      Some very wise people have said, “If it works, don’t fix it.”

    • #46945

      You leave yourself vulnerable if you don’t patch, lots of software has vulnerabilities, once these vulnerabilities are found the many different companies apply security patches to harden their software. At some point you have to patch if you want to remain protected, just not a good idea to patch right when an update is available unless you know it isn’t going to affect your system in a way other than what the patches are intended to do, to keep you safe.

    • #46946

      Nothing yet, as of 6 p.m. EST. I’ve hidden it at least three times, so perhaps they have given up on me. 🙂 I have GWX CP running in monitor mode, perhaps that has something to do with it.

      – Win 7×64 Home Premium OEM

      KB3035583 appeared this morning U.S. time in my WU list.

      – Unchecked
      – Optional list
      – Italicized

      I’m not sure if this info helps regarding the italicized question, but here’s what I’ve seen with my PC:

      My WU setting is “Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them”. That’s been the setting for a long time.

      I recently unchecked the setting “Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates.”

      I began to notice some WU’s italicized after I changed that setting.

      Yep, I’ve got that pain in the posterior as well. It is showing up as an optional update, unchecked, with the update listed in italics. Shows it as a recommend update. They just don’t get the message, do they??? Come on Microsoft, get your heads out of your posteriors and listen to your customers.

      Windows 7. Don’t see it. Already hid it once.

      Interesting. That might explain my italicized entries, too. I’ve wondered about that for years!

      Glad to contribute to your Big Data (unlike Microsoft’s) considering all you have done for us.

      Checked for updates earlier today, running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, no KB3035583, I’m in the UK, so maybe not got to us yet? Already had it 3 times, all hidden, running GWX and using Group Policy to block.

    • #46963

      I hid that particular update in December 2015 on both my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit machines, it hasn’t appeared again on either yet. I’m in the UK so it may appear tomorrow morning GMT in which case I’ll add an update here.

    • #46964


      To my last post. On main Windows update window it says I have 1 important update. When I click the 1 important update link, I’m taken to the Important (1) tab (Not optional tab). HOWEVER, the info in column to the right within Windows update says it is a “Recommended Update”. So I guess it is instead a Recommended update in the Important section of Updates.

I’ve always had the “Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates” box unchecked.

      @woody Before you ask, I’ve never seen a definitive explanation about why patches appear italicized

    • #46993

      The “Give me recommended updates” option being unchecked is absolutely the reason for the italicized text Woody.

      Yes. Right now, my Win7 machines say “Published: Yesterday.”

    • #47021

      With all due respect, you’re no more vulnerable than you have been all along.

      These are bugs Microsoft put in in the first place. Who’s to say the patches don’t have more bugs?

      And your statement assumes that there are people pushing to find chinks in your armor constantly.

      Statements like “you leave yourself vulnerable” border on paranoia.

      You might point out that once Microsoft issues a fix, there are crack teams of experts dissecting the fix to find the vulnerabilities they didn’t know about. I would counter by saying, again, keep in mind that without exceptional conditions even these people aren’t all just outside your door all the time.

      You make yourself more vulnerable by listening to people who oversimplify and generalize and spread fear, uncertainty, and doubt.

    • #47026

      No offense taken. When new security updates are released they patch the known vulnerabilities that have been found, sure there could still be some vulnerabilities. Oses have million lines of code, and we know Microsoft in particular doesn’t distribute a finished product. It isn’t paranoia once an exploit has been found.

    • #47027

      We’re on or near the same page I think.

      I’ve kept up with updates in the past. I do know the advantages of partnering with a firm to derive value.

      But this isn’t the same Microsoft. Not at all. Now we have to defend our older OS from activity that only a few years ago would have been considered very much that of a malware author.

      Remember PUP? “Potentially Unwanted Program”.

      Whatever reason we hundreds of millions of Win 7 and 8 users may have for holding back and continuing to run an older OS, it’s not because we’ve accidentally missed the offer!!!

Is it because no version of it ever has been installed on any of my computers or is it because I also never installed the “updates” to Windows Update or is it because I’m Finnish, I don’t know. Fact is that it’s not showing and that makes this a great day. I must be doing something right.

      Win 7 Pro 64-bit, was Important Recommended, not checked, un-italicized. Hid it 2 days ago and it remains hidden today. But there are two entries in hidden list, differing only by size. Do other folks see this?

      PS: Thanks, Woody, for this valuable service!

      I’m about to publish an explanation. In fact, there are two different versions. Coming up next on AskWoody.

      Still not showing here, I’m so happy I’m replying to myself.

      Oh CRAP, Satan’s back… Blehhh.. Then again, I have noticed it’s quite satisfying to catch and disable this malware myself, no antivirus programs involved. Thank you Microsoft for making the little guy feel a bit special. So keep on sending shady updates my way, I have all the time and patience in the world. You’re the one who looks ridiculous with your DESPERATE bullying. Windows 10 is garbage. All of it.

      Just noticed today (26.02) that the update appeared.
      I’m running: Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) and the update (kb3035583) was marked: Important.
      (and I have hidden that specific update several times in the past)

      The previously unchecked KB3035583 updates on all my Win7 machines are now CHECKED in the important updates with “give me recommended” still checked.

      On my Windows 8.1 64-bit machine, KB 3035583 appears as optional (Recommended), unchecked, italicized. If I had Recommended updates checked (‘Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates’), KB 3035583 would be checked. Glad I turned that off in January!

      Bought a refurbished Windows 10 64-bit, currently updated to 22H2. Have broke the AC adapter cord going to the 8.1 machine, but before that, coaxed it into charging. Need to buy new adapter if wish to continue using it.

      KB 3035583 just showed up again today – after I have hidden it many many times. I installed the GWX control panel yesterday and have updates on manual.
      windows 7
      not checked

      I have never seen italics before in updates.
      I have been downloading and choosing manually since the first time windows 10 downloaded on my machine.
