A recent email from Microsoft highlighted the System Update Readiness Tool. It describes it's purpose as:
System Update Readiness Tool
"This tool is being offered because an inconsistency was found in the Windows servicing store which may prevent the successful installation of future updates, service packs, and software."
This tool is a huge 315 MB download. From what I read, the tool is to prevent certain errors in using Windows Update.
I've never had such errors in updates, so I assume it is not needed. The tool is not listed as critical. I found it odd that this a such a big download.
Anyone have ideas on it's usefulness?
