Just got notified about KB3150513 update and I'm confused. As far as I know this update is for earlier releases of Windows to upgrade to Win 10... But I have Win 10 installed already?

According to the KB article, it also applies to Windows 10.

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

They could have modified it to support Windows 10, as this KB is used for compatibility purposes, which means it could be used to help you upgrade to a new build of Windows 10 easier (like Redstone 2).

Thank you. I hesitate to install it, because I'm worried it will mess up my AU settings. What do you think, 

Aura?

I never had any problems with installing these updates, I always installed them, so if I were you, I would install it. Though some people might not share my opinion. The decision is yours.

Thursday this update, KB3150513, installed when I had to turn of my PC due to thunderstorms. After turning on the update installed without me seeing it, but while running IE 11 my Norton's Toolbar went away and now auto fill-ins is inop.  Guess MS put the screws to me.  I have uninstalled, reinstalled everything in the process to no avail.  The vault will not work.  I an screwed again by M$ or Norton's or a hacker maybe.  Now before some joker gives me the "PCs fro Dummies" routine, I have been at this business for 60 years, both as an engineer and just tired old user, so if anyone has a clue please fill me in.  It is getting entirely old.
