Questions about MS Updates

Postby grits » Sat Dec 05, 2009 6:18 pm

Found update icon (contains 3) in tray when I returned home a couple days ago & am ready to pull my hair out trying to make sense of them. I've read in several areas, this forum included, (I think) to have updates "set to notify" instead of "auto download/install", so that's what I've done & usually take a day or so to read up on them before DL/install, but I can't make heads or tails out of this. Can someone please give this ol' granny some help? If possible, please "speak down" to me, I'm a dummy. I guess my main concern is with 2 of them that pretty much read the same when I go to MS for info. Had hoped to paste a copy of them here but don't know how so will try to explain....
KB973688 deals with MSXML ( I don't have the foggiest what that means )
KB973687 sounds almost identical to 973688
KB976098 deals with daylight savings time, but haven't really dealt with that one yet cuz the other 2 have me sooo confused.
Thanx in advance,
grits

Hi grits best advice is to install all updates. They may sound the same, but they are not, MS wouldn't make two the same.
