  • Hello wheel1963,

    Are you referring to installed updates? If so, please understand that all are needed to keep your system up to date. Please don't let the number of updates concern you. When a product is updated, new code replaces old so additional resources are not consumed.

    Also, please keep in mind that you probably have at least two major .NET versions installed:

    .NET 2.0 plus updates 3.0 and 3.5

    .NET 4.0 plus updates 4.5, 4.5.1, 4.5.2 and 4.6

    This also increases the number of updates.
