    Thanks Shawn. It was 7 important and 1 optional for me.

    All seem to have installed OK. Windows update seems to have gone a little awry for me of late, what with the Realtek update that got swiftly pulled and then old already installed updates being offered again (today).
    KB2962409 appears today but already installed 6 month ago

    Optional Update KB3013769 (Dec 2014 Update Rollup) is being offered again today. After some searching I found out why.
    KB3004545 was added to the update.
    Quote from updated KB3013769 article.

    Important When you install this update (3013769) from Windows Update, update 3004545 is included in the installation.
    I then found the KB3004545 article.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3004545

    These are the files added to the the original update.

    Update: I noticed the update is only 380KB compared to the original 55MB. It only installs the KB3004545 Hotfix.
    Why MS included this in the Dec rollup instead of just a standalone I will never know.

    I keep having updates that were already installed that keep coming back for a reinstall. Also, someone on here deleted my post and moved the description to a thread that had nothing to do with what I was talking about.

    One of very fast and meaningful updates, don't remember when was last time it went that smooth with clear explanations of what they are all about. 9 security related, important updates and one optional roll-up that is supposed to make repairs for some bugs.

    Anyone using Adobe Flash Player get an update? IE 11 is showing needing an update per my update apps, but none offered by Windows Update?.

    Nothing here. KB3044132 back on 11th March was the last for me.

    Thanks for confirming, Mooly - guess Adobe is running behind this month.

    Could be. In fact it feels quite a while since my Vista laptop last notified of an Adobe update too.
