Which to me is still optional but this one might come in handy as I also have 13 other updates which are to me unnecessary even though a few of them might be recommended,
Attachment 301828
The update in the OP (KB2913431) is not listed in your list of optional updates.

I had no optional updates, how long have those been waiting?

If you look up ie11 it will list as a recommended update for windows 7,
Most of the others are for remote desktop,

IE11 was in the front when it was offered to me, same with the .NET

Looks like you had those hidden previously.

I doubt it I do not hide updates if in doubt I just let them collect dust,
Besides some of the updates get replaced by current versions too so possibly that would explain it ?

That could be it, I'm sure different systems do different things.

You know at first I thought they were sorted by size
But Silverlight on top is bazar to me I always considered it as a windows item via Microsoft owned,
But fairly an unnecessary update unless you want to watch Microsoft help videos or stream from Netflix I believe ?
Cheers.

It wasn't listed as optional on mine, it was in the Important list.

I'm sure it would be in the Optional section if this box was Unchecked,
