Good morning everyone hope you are good. I am trying to understand the different microsoft update model but have some worries because of my english so am gonna post below my thoughts and you let me know if i am wrong or correct.



1: Security only quality update =  Contains security  patches only for the month it has been released. So if this update was released on January it will contain security patches for January and only.


2:Security Monthly quality rollup =  Contains  (Cumulative)security patches + non-security patches. So this update lets say for Windows 7 OS will include past and current security or non-security patches for Windows 7 going back to a current date.  


3:Security Update : Contains security patch for this month or previous month depending when it was released


4: Update : Contains  a non-security or security patch to fix a problem



Please let me know for any corrections or if you want to add any info i missed.



Thanks

Seems about right for the older OS.

Win 10/ Server 2016 update seems to be take it or leave it.

Yup - but I have options.
1. Disconnect from internet
2. Disconnect from power
3. Revert to XP :-)
