If you want to understand what any random KB update is for, I'd suggest you use the Microsoft Update Catalog to search for them, making sure to pick the one related to your specific version of Windows from the list returned by the search.

 

The first hotfix in your list ultimately leads you to this knowledge base article:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3185911/ms16-106-description-of-the-security-update-for-microsoft-graphics-com

 

I cannot imagine why these would not have been applied if you allow Windows Updates (though it appears you do not) as the first one is a security fix, and I'm willing to bet the others are, too.  You can, of course, manually download and apply using the catalog as well.

 

Addendum:  Also be certain to check the Package Details tab in the search results.  These hotfixes are old and have been replaced by more recent ones.

thinking back to windows update, I believe I only installed the ones that were said to be important or maybe Critical is a better word

 

off to look and use the Microsoft Update Catalog very carefully

 

thank you

No one has expressed better than one of our own BSOD experts how fraught it is for any end user to try to pick and choose OS updates, and this would apply beyond Windows though the focus was Windows.

 

There really isn't a point to checking for updates and not installing them. . .  It's important to install all available updates. I've been doing this since the days of DOS, and I still don't have the confidence to pick and choose among updates.  There are just too many variables involved - and most people can't evaluate the full consequences of installing/not installing updates.

I agree and understand what your saying.....when Windows update came back with a message saying 2 important updates are available, those where the ones I updated.   now the issue is how do I catch up with the ones I ignored?

What do you have your Windows Update settings set to as far as receiving updates?

 

It should catch all of these if important and critical updates are permitted if they are all either important or critical (and I'll admit I'm not going to do that research).  If some are not, but fall into the recommended category you can manually download them using the catalog site and install them manually as well.

 

For myself, I always allowed all updates though under Windows 7 I had things set to download them, but not install them automatically, because I liked to take a look at what was going to be installed (at least at times) and to be able to gracefully shut down my programs when that was necessary.

check for updates but let me choose to whether to download and install them is my current setting

 

I just ran Windows update and it lists only one important update for Windows 7 currently KB1377467

 

I will work with the catalog site and carefully manually update

 

thank you again

Remember that if you avoided updates but later didn't, many of these were replaced by later updates that were "more cumulative" and included them.

 

This is why I suggest you look at the "Package Details" tab in the catalog and choose the very latest update in the list, as they go in order with one replacing the other and subsuming the one it replaced.
