Not mandatory

Don't know if anyone's mentioned this, but none of the three updates mentioned were specified as "mandatory". Thanks to this warning I was able to make sure they're never installed on my gaming system. Hopefully. Unless they change how things are done in the next few months. Which they might.

32 years I fought the beast. The beast won. My parting shot is "I fucking told you so" when it comes to Microsoft continuing to prove that it's just plain evil.
