CHALLENGE: list of updates needed

I dont know what is happening to the updates system... I have some folks at a community that makes hacks for video games who claim I do not have ALL of the updates AVAILABLE... I guess like EVERY single update ever made... on my system. Claims 214 updates I currently have installed, confirmed with no available updates to download or install after checking the updater... is not enough. I should have like 200 some more...

I dont mind being wrong. I hate it tbh but I dont mind being wrong if I havent gathered the correct information or understanding of related. Thus, can someone please, for the love of God, help me confirm that I have all my updates possible to install on my win 7 64 bit genuine license key. facepalm.

My system has 225 updates installed. Their are more that I don' want.

If you have checked Windows 7 updates and their are none recommended then you have all that Microsoft thinks you need.

At this time in the Microsoft world one must watch what Windows 7 updates offers.

Research them before you install them is what I do.
Some I want and some I don't want.

When you consider How windows i designed to work with all types of compatible system the likelihood of any one system requiring 100% of the windows updates issued is Zero. Consider that some updates are related to the CPU So at a basic level you will not need an update for an AMD chip if you are running an Intel Chip, or even an update that relates to another Intel chip. The same applies to Motherboards, Graphics card and the variations of software installed on the system.

Microsoft update analyse the system and only download the updates required for the system involved - In my experience 3rd party software that claims to find drivers is nowhere near as accurate in these tests and therefore will tend to load more then is required, (to ensure that all that are needed are installed), They also at times miss drivers that are needed.

The incorrect diagnostics is the main reason that 3rd party software has many problems and can cause more issues than they solve. Microsoft knows more about Windows than the rest of the industry combined so it's best to let them update Windows, and only them.
