It is this excerpt from the article, which so deeply troubles me:

It might also have been helpful if Microsoft still let you install only
those patches you need rather than one large blob of updates. It=E2=80=99s =
bad

<http://www.infoworld.com/article/2949622/microsoft-windows/windows-10-forc=

but it is also bringing the rollup patch model to Windows 7, 8.1
<https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/windowsitpro/2016/10/07/more-on-window=
s-7-and-windows-8-1-servicing-changes/>,
Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Server 2012 R2, starting on
Oct. 11.

This is going to be so much fun!

Are you worried sick about what these massive security and quality rollup
patches are going to do to your company=E2=80=99s computers? I recommend
joining Microsoft=E2=80=99s
Security Update Validation Program (SUVP)
<https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/gg309155.aspx>. It won=E2=80=99t get you =
an early
look at the quality patch bundle, but it will let you establish an
additional early validation ring and a direct channel back to Microsoft for
any issues encountered.

Since I fully expect lots of issues, based on Microsoft=E2=80=99s long hist=
ory of
buggy patches, you really should join. You may still get some patch
surprises, but at least the odds are you=E2=80=99ll avoid the worst of them=
.

I hope.

Windows has been fixed =E2=80=94 sort of =E2=80=94 now. But, it=E2=80=99s o=
nly a matter of time
before it breaks again."

I guess I WON'T be taking-out that 3'rd party "watchdog" WIN10 blocking
software on our WIN7 machines. :(
