February 14 2017 security update release
Our top priority is to provide the best possible experience for customers in maintaining and protecting their systems. This month, we discovered a last minute issue that could impact some customers and was not resolved in time for our planned updates today.
After considering all options, we made the decision to delay this month’s updates. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change to the existing plan.

I had something odd happen a few days ago - saw the 'there are new updates' pop up on the taskbar, and clicked the X to make it disappear ...next thing I know, it's downloading updates! I stopped it and thought no more until shut-down that night, and it installed the ones it had managed to download.

I'm reluctant to even look at the updates in case it auto downloads more of them!
From what I can see on the drive, it was mostly .NET updates.

I remember some people getting W10 downloading when they clicked X on the window to close it!

The microsoft updates will only ever update by referencing the operating system and what the user has installed with regards that operating system only

It will never give you a update for software that you have not even installed. .net is classed as being part of the operating system so therefore you would have had .net installed but was missing a previous security patch hence it would have downloaded that missing patch

True, .NET was already on the computer - a technician installed all the updates some time ago when fixing something via TeamViewer.
I'd stopped doing updates mostly because of a few screw-ups from previous ones - one of which had been a .NET.

I was therefore surprised to see these recent ones downloaded and installing when I hadn't selected them to be done. Still, nothing seems to have been upset by it smile
I'm no fan of things being installed unbidden.
