I am confused, as I'm not really that good at computers. Does this update format your computer as I have a lot of things in my computer. Please help, I have SP2.

Hi smalis,

Your image shows two Microsoft updates:
1) MS Security Essentials virus definition update. (this should automatically update in the background)
2) Intel Storage Sata Controller.

Neither update will "format your computer" but my recommendation is NOT to download (#2) Intel Sata Controller from the Microsoft Update site.
This type of driver from a stability and reliability standpoint is best obtained from the manufacturer of your motherboard or the manufacturer of your computer system (Dell, HP, etc) if it is OEM.
