Today I'm greeted by the need to put in two Windows 8.1 x64 updates.
One, KB3035034, is a security update for Adobe Flash Player, and on the general principle that more security is better and at least a few good programmers work at Adobe I've gone ahead and put KB3035034 in as it does have documentation:
No reboot was required for KB3035034, thankfully, so my system remains operational from its boot after January Update Tuesday.
The second update that appeared today, labeled Optional, is a WD SES Device update, presumably because Western Digital has released a new version - though I don't know why; my USB MyBook backup drives have always worked perfectly on the old driver developed in the time of Windows 7.
I clicked the More information link to try to find out why a new driver has been released. Zzzzt. No information online:
A Google search didn't turn up much of anything either.
The spirit of my Pop whispered to me, "if it works, don't fix it", and so I shall wait for more information before making a decision on whether to install it. After all, it is the time of Windows 10 previews... Microsoft has NO business incentive to deliver updates to Windows 8.1 of the excellent caliber they have in the past.
