    Dear George V,

    Thanks for the information. I too can report to the forum that the updates installed on my computer without any apparent problem.

    One can never tell though with Micro$oft so I cannot give any absolute guarantees.

    Sh ternet Explorer was not included in the updates. I assume it will be pushed out next month.

    Best wishes,

    ZA_avastgan
