when i go to control panel and select the windows update icon i get the dreaded hanging spinning wheel which wont stop.
a restart will allow access back into the update feature 50% of the time so that work around is hit or miss.
even if i can get into update module update history is always blank.
i do not know when the last update was done. in reality how important is updating?
i would hate to cause problems as my computer is otherwise doing fine.

if i can eventually update is there a specific way to select only vital updates without having to wait for all the unnecessary ones to install?
of course my main concerns are firewall security.

i see this is a common issue as there is a lot of information on this topic.
unfortunately it all seems surrounded by a grey area as to what works or not.

thanks
