    Some questions on a couple of updates

    So going through my list of all updates offered to my computers I have a couple I was wondering about since these are some that were before my time becoming a Windows Secret subscriber. I know these are really old, but maybe I need to still install them? Just double checking

    KB2532531 - This was before I joined the "Lounge" so I have no newsletters from Susan stating whether this was good to install or skip. Any one have a link to a newsletter on this?

    KB2585542 - This one I did get a newsletter, but I never saw an answer to what to do with it afterwards. Maybe I missed a newsletter? The newsletter I first saw this was Issue 323 dated 1-26-2012. It was called "Ready or not, you're getting IE8 or 9". It says to hold off for now, but as I mentioned I cannot find any follow up on this update. Any one have any offerings if I should install this or not? It is still in my hidden and I did restore it and it shows up to be installed, but I hid it again for now.

    KB2621440 - This update I have a huge question about. First I did receive the newsletters on this one, but my question is since I do not use Remote Desktop ever (I use TeamViewer instead) do I still need to install this update? I am not well versed in the area of how it works; my guess was that since I use TeamViewer I have no need for this or am I wrong?

    KB2667402 - Follows KB2621440, part of RDP. But do I need it since I never use RDP, I use TeamViewer.

    Thanks to everyone who have guided me in the past and I look forward to the responses.

    The only one that I don't have installed is KB2532531, and I have not failed any security checks for missing updates.

    Just wondering since I do not use the built in Remote Desk for remote sessions in to computers if I still need these. Example, Internet Explorer updates are needed because some of those updates are also part of the operating system.

    So I am just wondering the same for these Remote Desktop Protocols; I mean does Microsoft say that if you do not install these your system will just run fine? Or do these mean that if you do not install these your system will not run properly?

    If you do not use Remote Desktop you can safely ignore the updates by hiding them.
