Suddenly there are 80+ important updates

Recommended Posts

Earlier in the week my mother reported that Windows Update is now reporting 80+ important updates and 6 optional updates. Prior to this, Windows Update was reporting zero important updates and 80+ optional updates. It seems that about 80 optional updates suddenly got moved over to "Important". Very strange. Does anyone have any idea of what might have caused this? OS: Windows 8.1, 64-bit.

In case anyone else encounters a similar situation, this was the cause: My mother changed the configuration for Windows Update and didn't tell me. :)

She checked a checkbox that we purposely unchecked when setting up Windows 8.1 on her computer (see attached picture).

I assumed it got messed up somehow. I managed to break things in the past when messing with updates.
