    Of the 8 "optional" updates today for 64-bit 8.1 Pro...


    ...three of them are to be hidden, IMHO. The others look like standard good fixes.

    The three to not install/update are:

    This one is just because my system doesn't have this problem:

    The next two look like more tracking and Windows 10 stuff:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3075249

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3080149

    =====

    So, when I approve the others for update is Windows 10 going to automatically start downloading again?...
