But why did ones i did not install disappear is the mystery question.
    For 30 years of more I have always installed all Windows supplied updates including optional without giving it any thought and never experienced problems like I have had recently but I think my recent experience has been exclusive to the optional updates. I will use a different approach in the future at least with any optional updates. The good old days are gone.
    Yes, i believe i did so back in days of Windows 7 and before. We should at least know what we are installing, before just installing it is my point. Would you install a software without knowing about it first. As reasons for posting this by Brink is explaining what these important updates are.

    Never dawned on me, but could be right ,either that or realized they were not needed. Thought some are in preparation for Windows 10.

    Think maybe right, caught one so far was a optional as recommended one today, reasons why some received less, because they did the optional ones from the past.

    Who knows. Maybe the status changes because to install one update you need another preinstalled as a prerequisite.
