    21 optionals showing for me. This is madness. Are these yet more W10 compatability related ones I wonder.

    Has anyone looked up every update to see what it does? I have 20 updates and in many cases, "If it's not broke, don't fix it."

    I just don't want to create problems I don't have.

    Do like me.. Make a system image, then pull the trigger. I had no problems, but it does look like our British brothers & sisters(and a couple of other EU countries) are having a problem installing kb3022345.

    I did look them up, at least the ones that showed for my system. There is everything in there. Fixes for event viewer, Sleep, Fonts, Android photos, Project Sienna, Bluetooth... it goes on.


    There is a link here for each one,

For the longest time I've been unable to hide Microsoft Silverlight and Bing Desktop. I'll right click and select " "Hide update" but they return either a few seconds later or after a reboot. I have found others with this issue and was having someone here had a solution. Very annoying. James
