    OK dumb user question...
    Running desktop w10 64bit that's current with WU.
    Yesterday WU reported that my PC was current with Windows Updates.
    This morning - 4:30AM Monday - I clicked on WU thinking there might be a new anti-virus def to be installed and was surprised to see KB4040724 begin to download. I was thinking that these big MS updates only came out on Tuesdays - maybe once or twice a month... So what's with this update going on right now?
    btw-it's now awaiting my re-boot - which I'll do next..
    Guess yours was a little late, as most of us got that update on 9/25/17 :)

    KB4040724 Windows 10 v1703 Build 15063.632


    Well, my install history shows that on Tuesday 9/12 cumulative KB4038788 was installed.. That was the 2nd Tuesday in September.

    btw - after re-boot WU now shows me at 1703 15063.632

    And 1 more dumb user question - You said most users installed KB4040724 back on 9/25. That was the last Monday of the month - not a Tuesday. So when does MS really put out these big updates??

    When they are ready for release! Patch Tuesday is not a rule or law, it just happens that most updates come that day. None of us should really care what day or when they come, as long as they come often enough but not too often. If some serious security flaw is found and there is a fix that required huge rewrite/revision of a lot of components, I'd rather receive the fix the same day or as soon as possible, than having to wait for it for a month.

    No, but it is normal practice to collect together all the minor fixes and security updates and release them once a month. However, when a 'patch Tuesday' release introduces a bug (as September's did) an 'out of band' update may well be rolled out as soon as the fix is available. If it's a serious bug but only affects a small number of users it will only be made available through the update catalog. Typically the fixes issued this way are for business-critical functions that most of us don't use.

    When its a bug that affects most users it will be rolled out through windows update. This update fixes an Edge bug that everyone saw after Patch Tuesday's KB4038788.
    Addressed issue in Microsoft Edge where on first launch after installing KB4038788, or periodically thereafter, users may observe performance issues or unresponsiveness until the next launch of the browser.

    KB4040724 is on


    Again. Thanks!
    Is there some way that I can or should mark this post as solved?

    btw - KB4040724 went on in about 10 minutes yesterday and has not caused me any problems. But I seldom use Edge

    I don't think threads in the News forum can be marked 'solved' anyway. Can't 'Rep' them either.
