    There are some that shouldn't be Important Yet they are but I would still keep them up to Date

    Do you follow the Same trend with Updating your AV?

    I think one of the frustrating problem with updates is that sometimes (all too frequently) the new version is not as good as the former version. And when that happens, if there's no way to get back to the former version, it's a real bummer. I notice that a poster up above, for example, mentioned that about the new Windows Live version --- that some of the former features are no longer available. I had the same problem with the last update of Skype, which I did not like at all. Although I was able to link to the former version on line, I'm thinking that when Skype is updated the next time, if I dare to try it out, and don't like it --- how will I ever get back to my current version, which probably will no longer be available.

    And of course, on a much larger scale, I think that's one of the major problems with the major apps that we use, like of course Windows. Every time MS updates Windows, it chooses to exclude features that I loved and used regularly. The challenge is always to find tweaks to make those functions available in the new update. I personally am more interested in 'function' than 'asthetics,' so when a systems designer deletes multiple functions because to him/her the screen looks better without them --- that makes me CRAZY!!!!
