I don't know if I am in the right spot or have a clue what I am doing now but the two hotfixes have warnings on them which don't look good.

Can someone tell me if these are the right ones to download??

Comparing update counts don't mean a thing. Many of the updates apply to Office products too and there are several active versions of that. Updates will vary from one machine to the next. If you really want to know if YOU are up to date, download and run Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA). It will let you know not only if you have all the critical and important updates but also analyze security "holes" in your system. One item I forgot to do, and was reminded by MBSA, was to disable the Guest Account.

Might not mean anything to you - but it does to me. That is why I said optional.

How do you find superseded updates that can be uninstalled?
Is it better to uninstall them, or just leave them installed "as-is" ... for reliability, performance, etc.?

I used to run MBSA on my XP machine, forgot all about it so haven't installed it on the 7 or 8 ones.
I'm up to date with Windows Updates, including now I have IE10 which was offered with the last round of Updates, this is on my Windows 7 SP1 32 bit machine.

I'd like to know this too and how you find out how many updates are installed without a manual count.

I think they are these ones (Not that I have uninstalled any though)

MBSA won't run on Windows 8 at the moment. It runs great on Windows 7, Vista and XP though. I suspect an update will be coming for Windows 8.

I thought maybe this (MBSA) would be a good thing for me to do but as usual,I like to check out programs I see suggested & when I looked at the info on this one, it pretty much tells me that it's way over my head to know how to set it up & then understand the results. Am I mis-reading or is this program geared only to people that know PC's inside & out? I was blonde before it turned gray .

Thanx.
