    Optional Updates Received Yesterday or Today


    I have 6 new updates. I looked at the info for all and do not understand the info. The updates are:

    KB3021910
    KB3046480
    KB3047276
    KB3048043
    KB3048097
    KB3054169

    Anyone else get these updates? Are they for "10"? Are they safe to install?

    Thank you.

    Have you tried DISM and SFC after installing them? I've found some of these "Optional" updates have corrupted my System files and DISM and SFC no longer work. I'm not saying these particular 6 do that, but just cautioning to be careful using "mass" installation. You may not realize what the effect on installation is until later. Just backup BEFORE installation, in case there's a problem.
