      So I downloaded an 8.1 ISO and reinstalled Windows on all my computers with 8.1 and I’ve always wondered what all these preinstalled updates were. Can anyone explain what they are for and why they come preinstalled?
      Thanks.

      The list of updates in question.

      In the Microsoft Update Catalog, type in the KB number (omit “KB”), then click on the name of the update (not “download”). It will take you to a page that describes the updates.

        I believe its with all the huge win8.1 updates installed up to and including the infamous kb3000850. A definate bonus because even installed through WUD or from the desktop it can be a pain. So basically M$ has done the “legwork” for you. arent they a nice company lol 🙂 ?

      It is all good, you have downloaded the most up to date ISO “version 4”.
      If you need to know more, follow @pkcano‘s recommendations.
