Hello,

 

Windows 7 is my OS and I was wondering if recommended updates need to be installed as I noticed that they were only shown with the optional updates and not with the important updates.

 

Thanks.

Dealer's choice.  I never install anything other than critical security updates.  If my system developed a problem and I found documentation that one of the optional updates might resolve it...I would have to start looking them over.  Has not happened yet :).

Hello hamluis,

 

All is working well so I'm going to give this a try without the recommended updates and see what happens. :thumbup2:

 

Thanks for the info.

Hello HassanWael,

 

Haven't experienced any bugs yet from not installing the recommended updates and my computer seems to be running very well without them so far.

I guess only time will tell.
