    Suspicious update


    Anyone have any knowledge on this update?

    KB3016656?
    I see this in the "Installed Updates" but not in Windows update history.

    Googling comes up with several inaccessible links to a Chinese facebook page.

    I wonder if others have it, and what is its purpose.

    P.S. Later. OK. Forget it. I have solved the problem.

    I finally got to see if this was on my computer and it is. Was anyone able to find a link to what this was?

    I tried various searches including MS suggestion of "http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=3016656" which goes absolutely nowhere.

    Yes, hence my P.S. Windows update history except for hitches occasionally, shows packages, which include smaller, but associated, updates. The Installed updates section shows the individual updates, from that package.

    If you dare, you can test this by uninstalling 656 and rebooting. You will find that an update is available again for the package, which is still showing as installed. If you update again (I had to do this twice for some reason. I guess there was an even smaller update in there somewhere!), you will then find you have both updates showing again.
    Rather complicated way for users, to show the current status, but keep in mind that the list shown in the Windows updates is merely a dbase.

    Thank you for the information on this! Funny way of doing this, always been able to look up the particulars for the updates.

    Not sure, but I don't think it has ever been MS practice to supply that info on early pre builds. You just have to accept with a (wry) grin.
