I'm pretty much a total noob to how windows works, etc. I know my way around enough but some things I'm unsure of. Like when the pop up comes up and says there are updates available. One of them is IE9 and the other is a malicious software remover tool. I don't run IE9 but should I just update anyways? There's also two updates for other things that says they are optional. Should I just update everything? Someone once told me, don't pay attention to that update pop up and I feel maybe I was led in the wrong direction. I just built my first machine and put windows 7 home on it. I'm loving it but I'm trying to learn as I go and I want it to continue to run well.
