      Sorry for any inadvertent confusion. My interest in this arena is far less in emulating Microsoft’s chronically sloppy OS’s than in running software I have that was written for compatibility with either Windows 7 or Windows XP.

      Some helpful articles I’ve found include “How to run Windows software in Linux: Everything you need to know (PC World) and 5 of the best Linux Distros for Windows Users in 2019 (maketecheasier.com)

      Woody, this may be outside of your realm but my event viewer shows multiple, continuing and completely unauthorized access of my W7 Pro   (Dell XPS 8700) machine since I deleted the Dell Utilities found to have RCE vulnerabilities.

      Just today‘s samples include those shown below.   Dell heatedly denies making any unauthorized access to machine.   Any suggestions?

      Either way, continuing thanks for your help thus far and your web site.

      A quick check suggests that: “IMPORTANT Verify that you have installed the recommended updates listed in the How to get this update section before installing this update. For all updates starting with August 13, 2019, we strongly recommend that you install these updates to prevent any issues.

      Can you tell me which of the “updates starting with August 13, 2019” I should install (if any) before installing KB4519976?

      O.K., now that we’re Defcon 4, does that mean I should simply install KB4519976 (S&Q Roll-up) in the confidence its been vetted, probably won’t crash my machine, and will bring my W7 pro up to date?  Stack and checksum updates all done as the arose.

      My Windows system is Windows 7 Pro, SP1, x64.

      The patches of current interest are all those significant security patches identified as by the Master Patch List as OK to install (on my system) .  If it would  help I’d be happy to send you a list of all patches currently installed.

      Thanks for your reply,

      Thanks for your clarifications!  A quick check on my own W7 shows 9 existing KB3177467 files, all created on the same day in 2016 with 6 shown as type Security Catalog and 3 as type MUM files. Should they be removed before running latest Stack update?
