A very simple question please.
Considering the changes for WU coming shortly, and I assume the three categories of updates (important, recommended, optional) no longer exist or apply, and that we either install the Update rollup they send or not, should the Settings be adjusted to "Install updates automatically"? Currently, I have "check for updates but let me choose.....". Will any of the Settings make a difference or will the October Update just get downloaded and installed regardless of Settings - unless of course WU was turned off.
I don't intend to turn WU off, but my HP laptop has gotten cranky in its old age, and I haven't had the ability to "restore to an earlier time" and some other defects for many months (and do not want to attempt repair of System Restore again right now). Would it be best to wait and see how the October rollup affects other older laptops or just install what MS sends because it includes the security update?
I currently have 23 optional updates waiting to be downloaded and installed. I'd prefer not to do that.
Thanks for some guidelines.
