Win7 Win8.1 monthly update patch package push

In short this change means that the previous multiple separate patch pushes will now be pushed in the form of a separate patch package every month. According to Microsoft's instructions the existing model will reduce fragmentation and different PC devices will be installed with different patch packages. Another advantage of the new push format is that you only need to download a big patch update such as the Windows push in October 2016. The update will include all the October update patches.
