Windows 7 just informed me of some security updates, so I started the update process... 702MB are you serious... are you changing everything :-)




I'm not a complete idiot, I still have some parts missing.

Sign of the times eh, most of my Mac updates START at around 700MB, not to mention the iOS updates that come in at around 250MB each.

Depends on what Windows is updating - did it give you a breakdown? Might be Windows 7 SP1?

it's a mixture of Windows 7, Office, 2 versions of Visual Studio... that's not so bad then.

I did almost fall off my chair when I saw that

It depends when was the last time you updated your system. Is it offering Windows 7 SP1? Is it offering Internet Explorer 9? You mention Visual Studio, so it's something else, not "Windows". You mentioned "Office" so again it's something else, not "Windows".

My updates today were between 60MB and 70MB for my laptops and servers.

I am back home now and tried updating my main laptop. Not only it was a 350MB download (mainly becauswe of Visual Studio 2010) but it froze when applying the .Net 4 Security Update and I had to reset the machine a couple of times.

Big fail there...
