    New Windows Optional Updates


    The following optional updates were encountered this morning waiting to be downloaded and installed. I went ahead and installed the one's I thought applied to my configuration.

    Any thoughts?

    Windows 8.1


    Installed them all, as most seemed helpful and the others innocuous. Mind you, the only issue was that when Windows was restarting and in the shutting down phase, the busy round dots moved onto the far left of the screen, when they're usually central. Starting up, the dots and all were in their normal place and everything seemed fine. Probably some minor blip. I have backups if things don't go well, so not worrying.

    Yeah, I went ahead and just installed all of them after further thought. I, too, noticed the round dots to the left during the restart. Other that, there was nothing of consequence.

    Cheers.
