The installed updates in Windows updates are 209  and following support link that will not open.

 

Microsoft Windows (209)

Parent Name: Microsoft Windows

 

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=3102810    This link will not open or underline like other updates like in Silverlight

 

There are a bunch installed updates I am guessing 209 that all have that ?kbid= before the update number? 

 

The icon before each update is a white box with blue, 

I am wondering if these strange updates are malware or maybe my firewall settings/advanced firewall settings  are not right

Hi clou1956 :)

From what I can see in the link you posted, this is the recent update Microsoft released for Windows that are on a domain and receiving updates via WSUS (no home users have that kind of setup) and also the issue where when you try to upgrade to Windows 10, svchost.exe reaches 100% CPU usage.

What do you want to know? If it's normal to have 209 Windows Updates installed on Windows 7? Yes. Windows 7 have over 300. It's been out for years now so it have been receiving updates for a while now.
