I hope this question is not done to death here - I've done a forum search and can't find it already dealt with. I have just been through a long process of checking my computer for potential malware, guided by a very helpful Bleeping expert. Now that the process is complete, one of the bits of advice given was to make sure that my Windows Updates are always current. I have read a few articles recently which have said that Microsoft is increasingly releasing updates which add to Windows 7 the tracking and personal information harvesting capacity, which many people have been concerned about with Windows 10. I do not have the technical understanding to make an informed decision about whether these concerns are paranoid, or whether I should take them seriously. It would appear to be a very onerous task to individually research every windows update, and decide whether or not to install it, given my level of technical knowledge. I would be really interested in hearing people's opinions on this (particularly the Bleeping experts), as my only real option is to decide who to trust, and then follow their advice.
