It's not showing up for me, and maybe that is because I don't have KB2952664 (aka "Compatibility update for upgrading Windows 7") installed. Why am I saying this? Because that one is showing up again
as having been published today
. The last time it was published and I hid it was on the 12th of January.
I wonder if this is the last time I have to hide this crap.
Also pushed today is another update to the Update client, and again, lacking any sort of meaningful description, which is probably to say it's got Windows 10 bits in it:
KB3135445, "Windows Update Client for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: February 2016"
About this update
This update contains some improvements to Windows Update Client in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
One more to the pile of updates to hide.

They've made it well known that Windows is no longer an Operating System, it's now a SERVICE.
If you don't get on the service train, you won't get service, period.
Please stop spreading inaccurate information once and for all.
I paid for a retail copy of Windows 7, I've got the receipt and I accepted a different set of terms and conditions compared to those they are applying to Windows 10. Microsoft will either support Windows 7 until 2020 for systems prior to Skylake like they have reiterated
in that blog post about Skylake systems or they will have to reimburse me at least part of the money I paid for the OS, it's that simple.
Windows 10 is a service, all other prior OSes still under support aren't. Period.

Please do try, I'd like to see that as well. There is a strange complicitness in some media towards pretending that nothing is wrong with Windows 10.
Little mentioned fact regarding the latest OS statistics: while it's true that Windows 10 being aggressively pushed is getting its numbers higher (most of the media outlets are also playing Microsoft's game and saying it's now the second most used OS when that is factually wrong, it's the third because 8 and 8.1 are to be read as one), the overall Windows marketshare shrunk

What about a third option: people bought Windows 7 and want to use it for the time it is supported and don't want to submit to the worse terms and conditions that come with 10? Sounds strange eh? To Microsoft it surely does, but that's what they committed to and it's what people paid for.Edited by tpi2007 - 2/2/16 at 3:20pm
