    Just read at your link Frank, seems strange they didn't include the KB number for the update in question.

    I've got about a dozen Windows 7 updates not installed and hidden to avoid this.

    Tomorrow is "Patch Tuesday", so I'm waiting to see what updates Microsoft tries to sneak in on us for Windows 10.

    I'll be keeping a close eye on any new updates for 7 too.

    I've got GWX Control Panel 1.6.0.1 in "monitor" mode in this Windows 7 desktop.

    The Patch Tuesday updates will arrive here about mid-afternoon.

    I'm waiting to see if it displays a Windows 10 alert about any of the updates.

    Excluding the MSRT and Silverlight updates, I received these updates today for Windows 7 64-bit.
    GWX Control Panel 1.6.0.1 was in monitor mode and didn't display anything relating to Windows 10.

    What's KB3112148 for? I get that one for Windows 8.1 64-bit and when clicking on "More information" get "This page does not exist." I've installed all other updates on two systems, but am not installing this one yet.

    I'm right in the middle of updating 3 desktops:
    One with Windows 7 Pro 64
    One with Windows 7 Pro 64 and Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
    One with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and Windows XP Pro 32-bit
    so I'm keeping busy and haven't researched any of the updates yet.
    GWX Control Panel isn't alerting to any trace of Windows 10, and is showing Windows 7 in each one to be safe from the forced upgrade.
    I'm installing all the updates for now.

    I feel they should rather offer upgrade via a download file. Huge data being wasted time and again on 3 GB updates!

    I'm using W7 32 bit and thought KB 3112343 looked suspicious and so deselected and 'hid' it;https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3112343

    I also have GWX Control Panel but didn't install the latest version until after I installed 9 patches. It shows that the 'Get Windows 10 App' is installed on my computer but is not enabled or running and that I don't have any W10 download folders. I have enabled GWX monitoring and will be keeping an eye on it!

    It's now described as a Time Zone update. I have installed it.

    Had the same updates as Flavallee this AM. All installed OK and GWX shows no win 10 stuff.

    Yesterday on my WIN 10 machine, it installed a cumulative update for WIN 10 and it looks like I got a new app. A new way to get to administrative tools. ???

    FWIW after looking at TOGG's link I have hidden KB3112343 as it involves upgrading to 10.

    Yes, I also got the update. They should really offer to download the updates and install manually. I kept the machine on whole night for the updates to be downloaded and installed. Some times even that doesn't help!
