Most people don't need MDAC, so don't worry about installing the 2.8 update. BIGFIX brought up the update because your computer has a previous version installed.

BIGFIX hasn't been updated in a long time(the last version was 1.7.6.0), so I question how functional it is. I had it for awhile, but I finally got rid of it.

Besides using the Windows updates site to download updates from, you might also give this site a look at. The newest updates are added to the bottom of the list.

Hi Flaveelee

So I wont bother downloading MAC but will it remain there?
and you think Windows update is good enough?

Must admit, I think you end up with too many progs.

Most of the updates that appear under "Critical Updates" are security-related, so you want to install them. "Recommended Updates" and any others are pretty much a user's choice.
