    So why if you are already running W 10 do we need and have this as an update.o_O

    Microsoft is continuing their aggressive push to install Windows 10 on Windows 8 and Windows 7 PCs. Another round of updates has started - a new update, KB3150513, has been released to "help" the user switch to Windows 10 immediately.

    The patch comes with the following description:

    The reason you not only need this but want this update is because Microsoft have updated the tool that automatically verifies your System will be compatible with the latest Windows 10 OS Build installation.

    For those all ready with Windows 10 installed, the cumulative updates are in effect a new OS Build, and given Microsoft offered this OS freely to people with Windows 7, at some point its plausible those with older computers may no longer have full compatibility with the latest OS Build as some drivers they may be using may simply lose support for further updates.

    Thus it is relevant, even for a current Windows 10 user.

    I have not seen the update, but I agree, Microsoft should leave our systems alone. There is no reason to install unnecessary updates related to Win 10. Anyone who wanted to upgrade has already done so.....

    I agree that this as with the entire MS/Windows update process is a bone of contention and should have an opt out feature...but that is simply wishful thinking and will undoubtedly never happen.
    I for one have an older laptop running 10, and thus far it's been fine..the point really isn't about this update, but shoving new builds via cumulative updates down our throats when all is running fine.

    Which is a good enough reason why i don't need this update and will not be installing it.
    I remember what happened when the anniversary screwed things up for me.
    With W 10 more that any other previous ms os i tend to check out what new updates are all about before installing

    I'm a bit confused....
    Has anyone actually seen or received the aforementioned update on their Windows 10 computer?
    I'm relatively OCD about checking manually for updates a couple times a day and I've not seen it on mine.
    It looked to me like it was intended for previous Windows Operating Systems

    Thats why i didn't install it as it looks like as you say for previous Windows Operating Systems so ms can continue bullying everyone onto W 10 so why receive this when you are already running W 10
    I am very wary about what the updates are for in W 10 more than any previous versions.;)

    Having looked for more info on KB3150513 this is why some of you are not seeing it if you are on the latest build.
    It seems to suggest that it might somehow enable some sort of unwelcome AU update for those of us on 1511 who are deferring it which i am as is screwed up my pc and see nothing in the latest build that i want or need.
    So by me deferring this latest build ms are trying to nag me into installing it.
    Well its my pc and what i install on it is not for MS to decide;)

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3150513

    This update will be offered only if the following prerequisite updates are installed:

    On Windows 10 Version 1511: the August 9, 2016, cumulative update (KB3176493)
    On Windows 8.1 and Windows 8: update 2976978
    On Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1): update 2952664
    On Windows 7 RTM: update 2977759

    The problem is that some updates have dependencies on past updates. The problem is knowing whats unnecessary or not is not understood by most users.

    Yes and unlike previous versions you can not tick the updates you want you have to download the lot then delete the ones you don't want after you have installed them.:(
    W 10 is the only os i have had that to be honest i dread the updates as i never know what they have screwed up.
    I hope that by not installing the Anniversary update i will not receive so many unnecessary junk updates that are not relevant to my needs.;)
