    *Update. Totally forgot about this one. I used a Thumb Drive to download Simplix updatepatch.exe then to updatepack7r2 on several very similar machines within my smaller office. I took the same Flash, with the Full UpdatePack7R2.exe already downloaded to a friend's house w/ an older processor, threw in the thumb drive w/ UpdatePack7r2.exe (WITHOUT using updatepatch.exe, which of course uses the scan to DL updatepack7r2.exe geared more machine specific). :wacko: So the older machine was 'stuck' b/c of my dimwitted oversight. *doh*
    *Lesson, DL updatepatch.exe before updatepack7r2.exe EVERy time
    (although, is Simplix using updatepatch.exe anymore, or just updatepack7r2.exe direct download?). Last couple times I think i saw updatepack7r2.exe and no updatepatch prior?

    Sorry for dated post, but hope my oversight can help some other dummy like me :)

    Microsoft surreptitiously adds telemetry functionality to July 2019 Win7 Security-only patch
    Posted on July 10th, 2019 at 05:33 PKCano Comment on the AskWoody Lounge
    Unannounced, Microsoft has added telemetry functionality to the July 2019 Security-only Update for Windows 7 KB4507456. Alerted on Patch Tuesday by an anonymous poster:

    Warning for group B Windows 7 users!

    The “July 9, 2019—KB4507456 (Security-only update)” is NOT “security-only” update.

    It replaces infamous KB2952664 and contains telemetry. Some details can be found in file information for update 4507456 (keywords: “telemetry”, “diagtrack” and “appraiser”) and under http://www.catalog.update.microsoft...updateid=7cdee6a8-6f30-423e-b02c-3453e14e3a6e (in “Package details”->”This update replaces the following updates” and there is KB2952664 listed).

    It doesn’t apply for IA-64-based systems, but applies both x64 and x86-based systems.

    Microsoft included the KB2952664 functionality (known as the “Compatibility Appraiser”) in the Security Quality Monthly Rollups for Windows 7 back in September 2018. The move was announced by Microsoft ahead of time.

    With the July 2019-07 Security Only Quality Update KB4507456, Microsoft has slipped this functionality into a security-only patch without any warning, thus adding the “Compatibility Appraiser” and its scheduled tasks (telemetry) to the update. The package details for KB4507456 say it replaces KB2952664 (among other updates).​

    Come on Microsoft. This is not a security-only update. How do you justify this sneaky behavior? Where is the transparency now.

    @Mr. Fox You want this one on YOUR computer?:rolleyes:

    I will not have it, as I do not allow updates. But, this is great info for those that do allow them. Thank you for always providing such useful information.

    Their dishonesty and surreptitious behavior never ceases to be appalling. Only a hollow shell remains of the once-great company they used to be.

    Microsoft in the 90s: "Where do you want to go today?"
    Microsoft now: "Our way or the highway."
