    it's an interesting point on apps though

    On my 8.1 I have the Skype app as optional update, if all updates are forced would Skype be installed on my machine

    and if I uninstalled, would windows update put it back again

    I had the same issue and I uninstalled Skype and if it showed up again as an optional update I put it on hide and it never showed up again.

    The Skye update is not a driver issue.. it's an app that MS tires to install as an optional upgrade.

    I know this; I was just saying!

    Can't say anything around here without someone jumping on my case.

    I like to have the important updates installed automatically - but I want to review optional updates.

    Will Win10 allow Optional updates to be stopped/blocked (assuming they have Important and Optional as separate components)?

    The problem is that it's not only Windows Updates, but driver and app updates that may not be wanted or buggy; although, as I said above, driver updates can be stopped.

    The biggest problem, though, is 3rd party AV's, but that is another thread/another subject

    It's not that Skype causes issues it's simply not wanted by some.. like me. So I removed it and hide the update in the future.
