Thatís got that done! An update for the .NET Framework to v4.7.1, Security and Quality Rollup for the .NET Framework and the January 2018 MSRT, so those 3 updates on all 3 of our PCs, plus 4 Office updates on one of the laptops which is the only one with Word 2007 on it.

I got another W10 Defender AV database update
also the 2018-01 Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1709 for x64-based Systems (KB4056887)
and the January 2018 Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool
In other Words an almost Zero Month !

I had a few sneak in on my Win 10 last night, a few for Office as I have Word Viewer installed, Flash Player and MSRT.

I think the earlier one we got as the patch may have incorporated this month's Rollup but if they've pulled it, we may get another out of cycle later.

I have one other Win 10 to do and my Win 7.

As well as the updates I mentioned above, this is what I have showing in 'View update history' for this month's earlier update:

2018-01 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4056894) 05/01/2018

This update is still showing in 'Currently installed updates' too, so it hasn't been pulled.

I haven't checked my Win 7 yet to see if it's still offering 6894.

You didnít do the Windows 7 one earlier this month then? I think the update must still be available as people arenít always able to get updates immediately for whatever reason. I suppose it could have been withdrawn temporarily due to the current chip problem.

I would still expect to get the Office ones and MSRT but 6894 was giving me a BDOD on Win 7.

I think I have guessed what's happening about the scheduling... from a W10 angle
1st There are 1 or 2 Updates per day on the Windows 10 Defender antivirus d/base .and the MSRT update ,Adobe Flash remain on the 2nd Tuesday
Now, all other security updates have been left to run wilder (Faster release) giving a seemingly out of cycle launch rather than bunching /queuing the same for the Next Patch Tuesday ? If that it is so (a change?) then I like it

Sorry Tom, I remember now you saying before about the BSoDs you were getting with that update on Windows 7. Iíd forgotten when I made my previous post here! Hopefully itíll get sorted soon and youíll get a BSoD-free update!
