    What is Windows update KB3112148


    Windows update KB3112148 showed up today When I select The More information link in the windows update it goes to a page that says "does not exist try searching what your looking for"

    Anyone know what the update does is this more Windows 10 installer junk?

    Same boat. I can't understand why MS can't put the update's info page up seconds before putting the update out... Like previous times, you'll just have to wait till someone remembers to put the page up. Until then, I won't be installing it.

    I have found reference to this on 2 sites
    Microsoft Security Bulletins For December 2015 | On Hax
    Microsoft Security Bulletins For December 2015 - gHacks Tech News

    Both look like the info came form the same source:

    Non-security related updates

    • Update for Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows Server 2012, Windows Embedded Standard 7, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows XP Embedded (KB3112148)

    The update's page is now up. Its title is: "December 2015, cumulative time zone update for Windows operating systems." At least it's not Windows 10 related.
