      I use Windows 7 on my PC and, as of today, I still have not received any notifications about the monthly security rollup updates for August 2018.  Has this been delayed?

      It’s the second Tuesday of the month before these are issued, another five days to wait.

      Just for clarity’s sake: Neither Woody, nor Susan Bradley, nor any of the MVPs are advocating installation of *any* of the July 2018 Windows Updates, across all (7, 8.1, 10) versions, for Groups A, B, or any other “Groups?”?

        @anonymous and no, I am not seeing any recommendations in here either for July’s, here’s my personal rundown or take. Win10 Pro 1709 (home) still on 30 days deferral, Win10 Pro 1803 (work) marooned in early June with 30 days deferral set. Win7 Pro x64 and x86 (home) July’s UD’s some still unchecked. .net 4.7.2 was installed a bit back (May?) as a standalone so just the update outstanding again unchecked, Win8.1 all checked probably good to go but waiting for the general OK round here. As Susan remarked on her Radio podcast and the general consensus in here, July was a disaster month. Considering a 2 Month rollover here, really wont make any difference as theyre cumulative but it may give M$ a chance to get their act together.
