I have just received notice of another 16 updates from the XP automatic update facility. Do I really have to keep on dowmloading and installing this flood or is there some way to find which ones really are essential so that I can ditch the rest.
Thanks Chris & Vog, also Aristo for the warning. I already adopt Chris's Look & See policy but it's not ideal. The MS brief descriptions are usually unclear or unhelpful, so that means going to the KB article which is rarely in 'Plain English'. All very time consuming when all I realy need to know is: 'Is this update vital for a single home user (as opposed to Network Administrators) or can I file it under 'If it ain't broke don't fix it'. Maybe PCA could regularly publish such a list!?
