Windows 10 is offering a confusing mess of Intel driver updates
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-is-offering-a-confusing-mess-of-intel-driver-updates/
https://www.windowslatest.com/2020/09/28/windows-10-is-pushing-old-drivers-updates-that-you-should-avoid/

Yes I would call that confusing, mine has a whole slew of them (see attached and that wasn't all of them), which I think I saw a while ago and basically ignored.  Outside of visiting Intel to see what driver updates were available.  I'm very wary abut updating drivers as they are fraught with danger if a driver update fails.

Windows 10 ignores method to disable Bing in Start Menu, fix found
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-ignores-method-to-disable-bing-in-start-menu-fix-found/
https://www.windowslatest.com/2020/10/04/disable-bing-in-windows-search/

Now there's a surprise, I wonder if MS was protecting another revenue stream, or just keeping Bing alive (something I cull wherever possible) :)

Windows 10 upgrades blocked after installing KB4577062
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-upgrades-blocked-after-installing-kb4577062/
https://borncity.com/win/2020/10/10/kb4577062-blockiert-funktionsupdates-auf-windows-10-v190x-und-2004/

Not sure how this will effect those with the latest win10 2004 version:
Quote from: extract
Applies to: Windows 10, version 1903, all editions Windows Server version 1903Windows 10, version 1909, all editionsWindows Server version 1909

I Have KB4577063 installed but not KB4577062, as far as I can tell in the windows update history.

Afaik, it won't be an issue if you're already on 2004.

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-kb4579311-update-wont-install-causes-explorer-crashes/

No problem here, got that 5 days ago.
No problems here either. Bleeping computers likes to hit the panic button on occasion.
