    Users of Windows 7 (and possibly 8.1) BEWARE !!

    I received this batch of Office updates today for my Windows 7 machine – but one of the “Optional” updates I also received was the nefarious KB2952664 – the patch Microsoft issued and reissued numerous times during the “free” upgrade period to Windows 10.

    I’m sure Martin can provide more details – but KB2952664 provides the gateway to downloading the setup files for Windows 10 to systems such as mine, which still run Windows 7 or 8.1.

    For those users who do not want a force upgrade to Windows 10, it’s a good idea to look closely to review all the updates appearing on your system today.

    I’ll be “hiding” this update once again – probably for the tenth or twelfth time.

    I have a question about KB4011188. It is for Office 2010. This update shows up as available in my update status. I have Office 2016 installed, not Office 2010. Also, am running Windows 10, and this update is for earlier versions of Windows. Why would this show up as available for me? Thanks

    For backwards compatability? Just a WAG.
