    Should I allow KB3150513 to install or not?


    I see so much about this on the web and even here. However, I have not seen any info about what this does and if I should let it install.

    I am running 1607 14393.1066 and have set my updates to Defer Feature Updates as I want to delay CU as long as I can.

    I have 2 win10 computers and maintain my brothers win10 computer: all 3 of are on 1607 14393.1066 and KB3150513 are included.
    There aren't any problems with any of the computers. Create a system image backup before allowing. Even though you are delaying it, it's just a matter of time before you will not be able to delay it but you can wait until then if you wish. Personally I'm not in favor of delaying any win10 updates unless I see a warning on our win10 forums. The mysterious Windows 10 KB3150513 is back, bringing a bevy of bugs mentions what it does and includes Microsoft's description. As you mention there are reports on this on the web and this article does report some bugs issues, but there aren't any bugs in my system. With that said, I prefer to create system image backups and deal with update issues immediately: fortunately no issues so far.

    Thank you, and I always do a complete Macrium Image before any updates. The only thing I wish to delay is CU.

    Then do not install that, it justs gives you a faster route to the CU. It places a link in your Windows update section in settings and if you click on it you will begin your journey to it.

    But it keeps showing in my updates and asks me to d/l it. Can I somehow tell it to leave me alone with this KB?

    I don't want the CU just yet on my Windows Home laptop until MS solve the initial bugs. I've set the laptop to a metered connection and have declined to install KB3150513. So far, I don't have the CU

    Good tip Josey..
    If I do this will it also stop the KB3150513 from telling me to download and install it?
