Anyone on this board understand today's October Windows Updates, and how to know the "kernel mode driver" to find and install, and the way to choose service packs and rollups discussed on wu.krelay.de/en  ?   Too, too, too, confusing.  I have no idea what will and won't work in Windows Vista.  Most of the listed updates on the krelay page are for Windows 7; and he only suggests two KB's for Vista.  


If anyone really knows what's going on and how to know what where to choose, tell us all.

It's my understanding you will not longer be able to download these separate Kernel updates starting with the October updates. All fixes and security updates are in one rollup. I had to download the separate Security Update on the Windows Update Catalog site. I also needed to download the .NET rollups.


Currently I have Updates set to Notify but do not install. I also manually checked for updates and the my CPU went to 50% and was forever searching without offering an update. If fact my CPU is currently at 50% because it's searching for updates.My advise is to either install the rollups manually or wait and hope your computer downloads or offers them through WU. To stop this constant CPU usage I have to disable Windows Updates. It truly sucks. I never had this problem with linux updates.
