    Although I have some hidden updates I'm not really hiding anymore it does little good for some so I just leave them sitting
    They do come with a date of release and all you need to do is click on the update and it shows

    Eventually I probably will uncheck search for optional software that alone will stop most of them from being offered,
    If it weren't for office 2007 I would of done it years ago
    Same here Thrash, the only reason I have it to check for other software updates is because I also use Office 2007 same as you.
    If I skip every update on the basis it "could" contain something unwanted then my list would be huge

    There are never that many updates offered that you can`t check each one`s description, Tuesdays, well there could be a few more, but no big deal.

    Well worth it to check each one over :)

    Not every update is needed anyway and why add something you don`t need.

    Sarah says to check them over or else.........

    Yep using the key word "Optional" is as clear as can be
    In reality even Recommended updates are optional simply uncheck give me recommended updates the same way as important makes life a little less confusing when updates show up

    Far be it for me to argue with Sarah (or that impressive "big stick" she wields).

    All seriousness aside, it doesn't take all that long to check each update against my Specialized High Intensity Training List, then check each one left with MS to see what it does. If the description is vague, it will not get downloaded and installed. The day I find out MSpy lies to us (even if only by omission) about what an update does is the day I quite downloading and installing all of them them and pray fervently that my antivirus and Anti-malware programs will protect me. MSpy has been doing its darnedest to drive me away from them and, if this crap escalates, it will succeed; I'm sure I will have plenty of company.

    Well I skipped Windows 8 and by the look of things I won't be jumping on the 10 train. Nothing in it has impressed me so far.
    When it comes to 7's end of life, I'll have to look at other options. Linux Zorin or Mint is looking the favourite for me at the moment. I've got a few years to start planning though.

    That's one of the options I'm considering. I have plenty of time to make a decision.

    We may not have a choice

    So, I went ahead and installed all the Windows Update Client updates:

    Because I wonder how long we will be avoiding install certain patches
    From what it says on the WU settings page, and in its Privacy Policy, we may not have a choice where WU is concerned. Just by asking WU to search for new updates, MS is allowed to update the WU software before making the search.
