    7 'securities' here, all seems well. And (strangely) no new attempts at spreading more W10 influenza.

    7 Security updates and 1 optional update. All downloaded and installed with no apparent problems but the Restart took a long time, much longer than normal considering it was only 7 updates.

    Everything looks good on my end (W8.1 x64).. I'm surprised the W10 garbage updates didn't "magically" become unhidden. Maybe M$ is finally getting it, some people simply don't want W10.

    Yeah, got the same. Like you, I was sitting there wondering why it was taking a bit longer than usual to restart, but it came through, and all seems to work.

    Hallo
    I got problems with the update. This is the first time in my life I have such problems.
    After the update and restart, I got a blinking "shield" on the bottom left in the taskbar. Also, my link in the taskbar to internet explorer and file explorer did not react anymore. Right click on the empty taskbar, also no reaction.
    I restored to the point before the update.
    Anyone any idea what the problem could be and what I should do?

    Just the seven security updates for me. I notice however that a Browser Choice Tile has been added. Why ? I skimmed through the update descriptions and did not see this mentioned.
