KB3143145 to help with Windows updates

I've read that this is supposed to help with Vista and trying to update.

I have been using WSUS to update but KB3143145 is not one of the updates installed.

I managed to connect to 'Windows update' but KB3143145 was not one of the updates that had to be installed.

Why is KB3143145 not found through 'Windows update'?

Welcome back Autobahn. "KB3143145" leads you to this article: https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/MS16-034. Note that the actual kernel-mode driver update for March was named KB3139852, which was installed on my Vista PC on March 8. More importantly, please note that KB3139852 is not listed at Search for Windows Updates takes forever? - A possible solution - so if one was trying to catch up with Windows updates using that method, manual installation of this update is not recommended as far as I know. Where did you read that "this is supposed to help with Vista and trying to update"?

I think it might have been an older update.
I can't remember which forum I read it on (I've been reading so many trying to sort the WU problem).

If an update cannot be found then either the update has likely been replaced by another or retracted by M$. In either case you shouldn't have to worry about it.
