Hi,
I just installed through the update system it's a good test :)

All security updates are part of net framework and are uninstalled when you uninstall it
Installing another net the same security updates will reappear so they would have to be installed to but the update system will bring them to you so there is nothing to manually do just wait for them or manually check for updates and they should all appear after the search completes.

Hi,
Yea I have no idea what all comes up after doing the rollup :)
Good info I doubt micro... would re KB a update so the rest should be fine
Too many to manually search for to see what they are since you have Skype installed.

Some on my list were associated with Remote desktop stuff which is optional and I didn't need that feature so I passed not sure which ones 3-4 I believe.

I have only 15 updates left on my laptop but all are the same as my other screen shot that are left.

Hi,

After installing all important and required updates, have only 8 left in Windows Optional, vs 19 in the older install.

Havent installed Skype or MS Off yet.

Now plan installing utilities and than shall create a W7 backup before installing Off and its updates.

Thanks.

Thanks my mentor.

Queries:

1. Why does the older method has 18 optional windows update vs 8?

2. Should I create a image now or after installing Off and its updates.

3. Would disabling Services improve the performance on my lap with only 4 gigs ram?

4. How come Silverlight got installed......strange.

Cheers!
