    I have a
    Gateway One All-In-One Desktop with Intel® Pentium® Processor - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit operating system preinstalled.Optional update:
    I recently went to the Critical Updates and saw the following:

    "Intel Corp - Display Mobile Intel (R) 4 series expires chipset family" - 21 MB (which is quite a large update)

    Just what is this update and should I install it? This is our grandson's computer and we would not want to cause any problems or damage by installing this Optional Update. Nothing appears to be wrong with our graphics, etc.
    Please advise and thank you.

    I installed this onto my laptop and considerably improved the graphics on it.

    It is an update for the Intel chipset on the motherboard which may improve performance and reliability somewhat for Win7 particularly in the area of graphics.

    I personally have not had any problems with installing the Intel related updates from Windows Update; Intel and Microsoft work very close together and usually get it right.

    However if you are uncomfortable with this and are not experiencing any issues it can be safely ignored
