    allllllllllll these updates and yet the only ones i have seen, post october 22nd, are :

    Windows6.1-KB947821-v2-x64.msu
    Windows6.1-KB973525-v1.1-x64.msu
    Windows6.1-KB973525-x64.msu
    Windows6.1-KB973874-x64.msu
    Windows6.1-KB974332-v1.1-x64.msu
    Windows6.1-KB974431-x64.msu
    Windows6.1-KB974455-x64.msu
    Windows6.1-KB974571-x64.msu
    Windows6.1-KB975467-x64.msu
    Windows6.1-KB976749-x86.msu

    so i am assuming that these couple have superseded and/or replaced all the others-- and if not, what the heck?!

    can someone shed some light on this huge difference in the number of updates for me, please?

    yeah...

    i see that other thread, and i also see that there are no real answers there either... just people saying 'maybe my pc is faster without these updates'
    ...
    i guess i would like to know if someone actually has information from microsoft, or themselves, explaining what happened to all those other updates?
    usually i look for 'v1' or 'v2' to see if something is superceded, sometimes they roll several ie updates into one, etc....
    but i would like to know something for sure vs just guessing

    I reformatted my pc because i updated everytime when a leaked update came available. After a month my pc booted up slow and the shut down whas also very slow (and this didnt happen before those updates). I would suggest to people to wait for a public release and not to install those leaked/beta updates.

    Just install the ones that windows update say you need critical ones, optional one thats your choice, i would never ad updates that my machine dosn't need.
