Microsfot is getting either extremely stupid, or just plain relentless in trying toget Windows 7 users to upgrade, they're not stopping their pushing of ten. They just re-re-re-re-re-released the stupid update of KB-2952664 which installs the files for windows ten trash. I just hid it again, thankfully however it is listed in the OPTIONAL updates area


thank goodness I keep my machine set up to NOTIFY ME of updates but to lt me pick which to install.

Optional updates...of all sorts occur all the time.


IMO, most of them should never be downloaded/installed...but many users don't seem to know that "optional" is equivalent to "not really necessary."


I don't even bother to ever review "optional updates" unless it's strictly out of curiosity to see what some users are mindlessly installing on their systems without ever considering whether the install will be of some benefit or not.

I opt to install all updates (except Bing desktop).


No real reason why; I just always have. I guess with 1/2 dozen+ systems here with the kiddies, it's just easier.
