An All-in-One Update for Windows 7 SP1: How-to (REREAD)
« on: May 18, 2016, 05:51:30 PM »
I've got a new tool, and its' called KB3125574, from Microsoft.  Attached is a document I wrote about using it to revive an old system...if it'll work there, it'll work anywhere!


Warning; my draft was not properly labelled, and it HAS ERRORS.  If you've tried my document, please read the new one.  Not all is wine and roses (even if you're not concerned about the telemetry issues).  I've updated some systems that have NO TRACE of the new KB3125574 having been installed, but the systems seem more stable.  It's never the wonder tool I thought we were provided, is it?

That may be acceptable to some but I don't think I would like all of MS's updates in one go, as you would end up with all of the Telemetry and GWX updates and may even have your machine auto upgraded to Win 10 whether you wanted to or not - not to mention the ones that have caused problems for some.

I think this could be a case of be careful of what you wish for....

I think I read on another forum that it doesn't include KB3035583 which may be what triggers the Win 10 Windows Update to be offered and auto installed.

A few comments:
- KB 3020369 should already be installed on one's computer. According to this article

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020369

this update was released in april of 2015. Even if the user doesn't want to install the "Convenience Roll Up" the update should already be installed.
- Does the article itself contain a bug as well ? The author talks, at some point, about KB 3020369 but it seems she means KB 3125574.
- The author refers to Tweaking's "Windows Repair".
- I downloaded the "Roll Up" but didn't install it (yet). I think I am going to do a fresh clean install of Win 7 SP 1 and then install the "Roll Up". I fear that otherwise the "Roll Up" could overlook a number of (important ??) things. It's just like the difference between upgrading from say Win 7 to Win 10 on the one hand and a fresh clean install of Win 10 on the other hand.
- I like the fact that this "Roll Up" seem to remove all other Updates (???). But I fear it could mess up that complicated "Pain in the a**" folder called "C:\Windows\winsxs\". That's why I likely will do a fresh clean install of Win 7 SP 1 FIRST.

- The Piriform forum also had a list of all updates included.
- The update KB 3035583 (Windows 10 nagware) isn't included but the 3 telemetry "updates" are included. The telemetry updates have the following names:

KB 3068708
KB 3075249
KB 3080149
