Windows 7: Essential, Games, anti-virus through update

Essential, Games, anti-virus through update

Why is microsoft suggesting we update/install with essentials and games and anti-virus? I just hide them all. I don't need them.
I've had no problems with Win 7. Best OS from Microsoft in a long time. But I don't need all the extra junk.

It should be offering Microsoft Essentials through Windows Update unless theres no AntiVirus present.

What do you mean by Games? Games for Windows Live?
If you have it installed, or any games that rely on it, its an update that may be needed.
