    Windows Update

    Hello All,

    What the heck do I do with all of the optional updates(33 that I have NOT installed)) that windows 7 is throwing at me. Some of them I can figure out what to do with and some I have no clue what they do even after clicking more info

    If you no longer wish to receive notifications for the optional updates that you do not believe you need or want, simply right click on the update and choose hide.

    You can try to do a Google search for the update info to see if you can make sense of them. Also, perhaps look at Susan Bradley's column in the WS Newsletter. If you do not subscribe to the newsletter, you may do so by clicking on the Newsletter Archives link near the top of the Lounge web page and following directions on that page.
