The information pages appear to be updating as we speak. 2 more have info now, so I guess I'll just wait a bit more to update them all to see what they are for.

Yes the information pages are all there now.Installed them all apart from the (Kb2522422) which seems to only be relevant for people using cannon printers.Installed the others one at a time, 2 required reboots and (Kb2492386) changed my custom start orb back to default.No other issues at present though.

Yeah, I just wanted to know the information of the Update ones, minus the Malicious tool one.

KB2515325 still doesn't have the info page up, but installed most of them now I know what they are for. Thanks.

You have no choice if you install their operating systems. Also, it would be exceedingly foolish of them to do anything foolish!

Well, actually you do. Some updates of theirs have been known to botch systems, so having the choice to apply the updates or not is a choice.

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
