I am setting up a new laptop for a relative with Windows 8 64bit. I am immediately presented with 85 new windows updates. Do I really need all these OR is it wise to install them with it being new?

wise to install them

sunnystaines - Jock1e Thanks for the information. Got all the updates done last night - a few at a time - no problems. Would you advise an update to 8.1 at this stage?

I agree with Jock1e about there being very little difference except for eye candy and security. IE 11 for example. If you are going to do it I would do it now before you set up any more profiles.
