Don`t assume anything with Microsoft, always click the more information icon on the right hand side BEFORE you install an update.

I`ll bet you have your updates set to Automatic don`t you ?

Yes, I do. But, I don't let Windows install updates automatically though. My updates are set to install at 3:00 in the morning. The computer is off at that time. So, I always check for updates instead of letting Windows install them.

Yes, but that`s still auto, as soon as you turn on your PC it will install those updates.

It should be set like this, but we have been over this before.

Just a guess, but it could be related to that.

I think you're right Derek. There's no SM Bus driver present on my W10 install so it looks like 10 doesn't install it, maybe 7/8 pre-loads it for that reason.

I haven't and I've got that update pending.

I have Catalyst 14.12 installed, but the SMbus that I see is from 2006 and it says ATi, so yes, it's pretty old.
