  • KB3035583, the “Get Windows 10” app is re-re-re-released

    Posted on February 23rd, 2016 at 14:31 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Please check your Windows 7 and 8.1 machines, and tell me if KB 3035583 appears in Windows Update? Post here and tell me (1) Windows version, (2) Does the patch appear in the Important or Optional list, (3) Is the box to the left of the patch checked or unchecked, (4) Italicized or not. Thanks!

    (Before you ask, I’ve never seen a definitive explanation about why patches appear italicized.)

    I’ve seen three many independent reports that KB3035583 – the notorious “Get Windows 10” patch – has been re-released. Not clear if it’s recommended or not, checked or not.

    Be careful out there.

    It still isn’t listed on the official Windows Update site, and the KB article hasn’t been updated, at close of business East Coast time on Tuesday.

    I’m seeing it as unchecked, Optional, italicized on Windows 7 machines.

    On my sole surviving Windows 8.1 machine, KB 3035583 appears as optional, unchecked, italicized.

    Look for the story tomorrow morning in InfoWorld.

      Better still, KB3033583 is being shown as an ‘important’ update by WU 8.1 – but, when I clicked to show the updates, it still listed as ‘recommended’

      On my Windows 7-64 Pro SP1 machine it showed as Optional, however when you clicked on it the text on the right said it was “recommended update” and it was preceded by a yellow star! However, on my system, it shows up in Windows Update as still optional and was NOT pre-checked for install. I made a screen shot.

      >On my sole surviving Windows 8.1 machine, KB 3035583 appears as optional, unchecked, italicized.

      It’s high time to re-evaluate whether you want Windows Updates on your older system(s).

      Keep in mind…

      This is today’s Microsoft releasing these updates…

      They are more aggressive than ever w/regard to pushing you to Win 10.

      They have entered a time where they document things more tersely than ever – if at all..

      They have decided to push testing onto users (think “rings” and “deferred upgrades”).

      Their recent work is mostly application programming; they’re not doing hard-core OS work much.

      Tell me again why you would want to invite updates into an older Windows system?

      Some very wise people have said, “If it works, don’t fix it.”

      You leave yourself vulnerable if you don’t patch, lots of software has vulnerabilities, once these vulnerabilities are found the many different companies apply security patches to harden their software. At some point you have to patch if you want to remain protected, just not a good idea to patch right when an update is available unless you know it isn’t going to affect your system in a way other than what the patches are intended to do, to keep you safe.

      KB3035583 appeared this morning U.S. time in my WU list.

      – Unchecked
      – Optional list
      – Italicized

      I’m not sure if this info helps regarding the italicized question, but here’s what I’ve seen with my PC:

      My WU setting is “Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them”. That’s been the setting for a long time.

      I recently unchecked the setting “Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates.”

      I began to notice some WU’s italicized after I changed that setting.

      UPDATE:

      To my last post. On main Windows update window it says I have 1 important update. When I click the 1 important update link, I’m taken to the Important (1) tab (Not optional tab). HOWEVER, the info in column to the right within Windows update says it is a “Recommended Update”. So I guess it is instead a Recommended update in the Important section of Updates.

      All computers mentioned are Win7 Pro SP1 64 bit.
      Set to notify but let me choose

      On my home computer, it did not show up. Until I checked give me recommended. Then it showed up under optional, unchecked, italicized. And promptly got hidden, again!

      On my work computer and several other workstations, it shows under optional, unchecked, italicized.

      That’s interesting because Windows had checked for updates this morning before I looked at the patch details.

      Have other users reported an updated publish date?

      Yes. Right now, my Win7 machines say “Published: Yesterday.”

      With all due respect, you’re no more vulnerable than you have been all along.

      These are bugs Microsoft put in in the first place. Who’s to say the patches don’t have more bugs?

      And your statement assumes that there are people pushing to find chinks in your armor constantly.

      Statements like “you leave yourself vulnerable” border on paranoia.

      You might point out that once Microsoft issues a fix, there are crack teams of experts dissecting the fix to find the vulnerabilities they didn’t know about. I would counter by saying, again, keep in mind that without exceptional conditions even these people aren’t all just outside your door all the time.

      You make yourself more vulnerable by listening to people who oversimplify and generalize and spread fear, uncertainty, and doubt.

      Woody, a brief followup from yesterday. The laptop (Win 7 x64 Home Premium) has update settings the same as the two desktops running x64 Ultimate. “Important updates” is set to “Check for updates but …” and “Recommended updates” is unchecked.

      On all three machines kb3035583 showed up as “Optional”, unchecked, and not italicized.

      Woody…four hours ago I told you it had not shown up on my Win 7 pro (64) desktop computer.
      Now it is here! It is listed as an optional, recommended update. In italics, box unchecked.

      No offense taken. When new security updates are released they patch the known vulnerabilities that have been found, sure there could still be some vulnerabilities. Oses have million lines of code, and we know Microsoft in particular doesn’t distribute a finished product. It isn’t paranoia once an exploit has been found.

      We’re on or near the same page I think.

      I’ve kept up with updates in the past. I do know the advantages of partnering with a firm to derive value.

      But this isn’t the same Microsoft. Not at all. Now we have to defend our older OS from activity that only a few years ago would have been considered very much that of a malware author.

      Remember PUP? “Potentially Unwanted Program”.

      Whatever reason we hundreds of millions of Win 7 and 8 users may have for holding back and continuing to run an older OS, it’s not because we’ve accidentally missed the offer!!!

      I agree. Windows 7 Pro will stay my main production machine until something better is on the market. Windows 10 has a long ways to go before I would make the switch.

      I have Win 8.1 64-bit. I ran check for updates today (last run over a week ago) and it appeared as important, checked and non-italicized.

      After hiding update (again), it shows as a recommended update under the Restore Hidden Updates.

      Pfffff, GWX panel is not how I roll, I have my list of “f**kupdates” that never reach my system. Having said that, the great Satan 3035583 is still not showing up here. Is it because no version of it ever has been installed on any of my computers or is it because I also never installed the “updates” to Windows Update or is it because I’m Finnish, I don’t know. Fact is that it’s not showing and that makes this a great day. I must be doing something right.

      Win 7 Pro 64-bit, was Important Recommended, not checked, un-italicized. Hid it 2 days ago and it remains hidden today. But there are two entries in hidden list, differing only by size. Do other folks see this?

      Oh CRAP, Satan’s back… Blehhh.. Then again, I have noticed it’s quite satisfying to catch and disable this malware myself, no antivirus programs involved. Thank you Microsoft for making the little guy feel a bit special. So keep on sending shady updates my way, I have all the time and patience in the world. You’re the one who looks ridiculous with your DESPERATE bullying. Windows 10 is garbage. All of it.

      Just noticed today (26.02) that the update appeared.
      I’m running: Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) and the update (kb3035583) was marked: Important.
      (and I have hidden that specific update several times in the past)

      On my Windows 8.1 64-bit machine, KB 3035583 appears as optional (Recommended), unchecked, italicized. If I had Recommended updates checked (‘Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates’), KB 3035583 would be checked. Glad I turned that off in January!

      I have never seen italics before in updates.
      I have been downloading and choosing manually since the first time windows 10 downloaded on my machine.
