I was just wondering why my pc wanted to update.  Windows XP is not anymore supported so Im expecting not to get any updates.  I did get an update a while back but I saw it was for internet explorer.  Also the weird thing is that when I installed the update, it took 2 hours to finish.  I was just wondering if the update was legit and my computer was just having a bad time or something else.
