I'm in the same boat with Win7 SP1 installed and never update it unless absolutely necessary. However, a couple of updates are, now pretty well essential, Foxy. Read this thread for details: Update Win 7, or Not? If you follow the advice there on the two essential updates then don't download and install anything until such times as you have read the whole thread.

Thanks. That's the thread I meant. I'm on msfn.com too. Great minds think alike. I acquired Win7 only 2 years ago, so I've benefited from all the news about which updates to avoid.

We've strayed off the original topic.

For my clients I recommend using Firefox or SeaMonkey to use on Windows 10 OS.
Have doubts about any browser created by Microsoft. :-k

Return to Firefox General
