I this is weird update.

I just want to make sure it is safe to update it

it is KB3042058 and its from back in May 12 2015 Why in the heck would they update that one today and all the rest were on 10/13/2015 that the heck Scott let me know if this one is safe because I know that a few weeks ago there was a bad update and I can't remember which one it was.

however I did update the other 7 updates and uncheck this one until I know from you if it is safe to let it update.

ok thanks.

It is possible that something changed on your system to make MS believe that update needed to be reinstalled. If you download it from MS directly it should be safe. Scott.

Interesting. I just posted (my) last evenings unusual Windows Update experience on another forum:

I have my settings for 'download but wait for me to decide' on my Windows Update in 64-bit Win7 Pro. I noted no notifications from the Windows Update during the day, but when I went to shutdown late last night there was that little shield on the shutdown button telling me Windows would be installing updates and then shutting down once I hit the button. Nice of them. I went to bed as six updates were being installed.

This morning when I booted up I was treated to a couple of reboots with text lines watching further changes to a bunch of settings and the registry before finally giving me a desktop so I could go see what was installed and to re-verify the setting was still download but I decide (which it was).

The six updates are fine, but the manner in which I had them installed was not.

Anyone else get serviced against their will last evening?
