Hi! I am very sorry if I am posting this in the wrong area.
I'm not very computery, so I have a hard time understanding when I should update and when I shouldn't. I hate it when the update makes everything worse.
Anyway, I have no idea what this is, but apparently it needs an update, anyone know if this is an okay one? Thanks if you can help! :flowers:

Your Toshiba has software on it that 'checks' with Toshiba to see if there are any updates in this case it is your wifi card.  Many times an update will provide better security or fixes a known vulnerability or even adds additional features.  In most cases it is usually okay to run software updates.  I would go ahead and do it.  You can 'create a restore point' before you install just in case you have any issues and then revert back to the restore point if you do have problems.
