Was doing the usual Windows updates and am having trouble (error 80072EFE) with 3 security updates (I use Win 7). Come to find out one of them KB3139929 according to InfoWorld, contains an ad generator for Win 10 :ph34r: . Anyone else having issues or know anything about this?

*************************************************************************************************

FYI-Running the Windows Update troubleshooter and/or resetting Windows Update components (using the Windows Update troubleshooter) and/or running Fix It #50202 in Advanced mode will delete your Update History but not the list of Installed Updates.

 

I learned that with a previous issue. ^_^

EDIT...I was able to get 2 updates installed-am holding off of KB3139929

Uninstall update KB 3139929. Check for updates again and Hide KB 3139929. Just do without it. I use GWX Control Panel from Ultimate Outsider .com (it's free & clean) to keep Win 10 updaters off of my computer.

Thanks BN. Appreciate the information. :)

 

I also use GWX.

 

It just irritates me what they're (MS) doing. :angry:
