Anti Spying mega.co.nz link

There's a warning about win10 style spyware in win7. This is good, but it contains a link to some mega.co.nz link for a solution. This has problems:

  • mega.co.nz might go the way of megaupload.com and become a dead link.
  • It's not an official website, so it's to be instinctively untrusted.

Is there an official link for this software? Everything I can DuckDuckGo references back to a ghacks.net article (lol). If the developer can't even make a github page I'd be more suspicious of his program than I would of a Win7 iso on KickAss Torrents by a trusted uploader (which all claim to have skipped the spyware updates).

Updating Windows 7 with WSUS

I have been trying to find the best way to update a fresh install of Windows 7. Preferably a way that avoids Windows 10 bloat. I came across this program, which allows you to download and install selected updates for various versions of Windows. I have downloaded the updates but I have not installed them yet. Ill post my results once I try.

Is WSUS Offline Update a good way to update Win7? Because if it is we should probably include it in the guide (I can write an article on it).

Here's a link: http://www.wsusoffline.net/

Strangely enough when I tried to update my PC, my PC restored itself to a previous point where few things were installed. I have no idea why it did this. WSUS seemed to be doing its job, installing updates, but I question why it restored itself like it did. Luckily I made a restore point before running WSUS, so I have all of my files back.
Can anyone provide any insight on why this happened? --Theredpikmin (talk) 20:52, 21 June 2016 (EDT)
