How to download and install the June 2015 security updates

windows-update-june-2015windows update june 2015

Patches are distributed via Microsoft's automatic update system to home users worldwide. While that covers most home users, some may have blocked automatic updates from being deployed on their systems, for instance to run tests first or wait for stability reports before patches are applied.

If you have configured automatic updates, you may still want to run a check right away so that the updates can be downloaded and installed on a system running Windows right away. If you don't do that, you may wait hours before the patches are picked up automatically.

The best method to run update checks is the following:

  • Tap on the Windows-key on your keyboard to bring up the start menu or start screen.
  • Type Windows Update and select the appropriate result from the list of results.
  • There you need to select "check for updates" to run a manual check for updates.
  • The system should find the updates so that they can be downloaded and installed right away.

Alternatives are provided for users who don't use automatic updates. Updates are made available on Microsoft's Download Center from where they can be downloaded. Another alternative is the monthly security ISO image that Microsoft releases.

Last but not least, third-party software is also provided to download updates and patches to systems. These third-party solutions may improve the user experience, for instance by allowing you to download patches for multiple versions of Windows from a single machine in one go.

    And once again there is KB3035583, F*** Off and stay hidden. Oh and KB3068708 "Update for customer experience and diagnostic telemetry" Thanks for the info on what it does Microsoft. Pass.

    I see they've re-released KB2952664, Microsoft are certainly be very divisive with this new strategy their employing.

    The problem with goading people into upgrading is that some are happy being poked with a spiked stick, while others get very annoyed.

    If this is the way their going to treat Windows 10 users with enforced updates the last thing i want is to update to an OS that seems to be turning into little more than an advertising platform, someone needs to remind MS that their called personal computers and not Microsoft computers for a reason.

    Thank you Martin, these articles are very helpful to weed out the unnecessary on a low spec machine.

    Like a lot of folks I will ultimately go windows 10+ once 7 no longer has support, but when I do I will get a new machine. What I don't want on my old 7 system is it to incrementally lose storage space, have processes I don't need eating up precious ram, and effectively be upgraded to a level of incompetency.

    Thanks Martin for this. Certainly helps me to weed out the stuff I do not need.

    Updates made my Win7 computer start with an error message pop-up and broke one of my applications. I UNinstalled all of the recent updates and now my system runs fine. I had updates set so that MS was to let me choose which ones to install. However, that didn't happen. The updates installed without my even knowing it. AND this is one of my peeves about the shiny new Win10. Home version does not allow turning Automatic Updates off.

    Well,
    after this update all office applications crash on start with safe mode too... Error module: C:\Windows\syswow64\msvcrt.dll

    Nothing to say

    Seems these Windows update change the settings for Windows Update to automatically download, install, and restart. I have all of my Windows 7 machines set to download and notify me when an update is available (let me choose if and when to install). All my machines have changed to automatic, updates were installed, and also re-started. I had programs running overnight to accomplish some tasks and came back in the morning with nothing up and running. The machine obviously restarted. Tasks not complete. Thanks Microsoft!

    I had issues with corrupted files after installing updates. About 12 in the cbs log. I did a system restore and that corrected the issue but reinstalling these updates caused the issue again. What next?

    Windows Firewall is blocking my connection and will not allow me to synchronize my info in access db. 8.1 really has no real options to allow apps through under the control panel. This is really putting me behind :( not happy
