    @EddieB1106 that's very interesting to me that there are 12 entries as I've seen multiple entries many times.
    --- Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3930K CPU @ 3.20GHz
    --- Are you satisfied with its performance?
    --- I don't know how that happens and I'm hoping someone else can chime in on that and what to do about so many of them.
    Here is benchmark information for your Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3930K CPU @ 3.20GHz
    Intel Core i7-3930K - CPU benchmark - Processor performance chart

    I cannot relate also why “Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor E5 Product Family/Core i7 Power Control Unit 0 – 3CC0” is one of the items in your Optional Updates either.
    --- Is your PC custom built?

    Custom built


    I started building it in 2012 and it was going very well and then couldn't find room for it because of the full sized case so Win 10 was out and I bought a unit from HP that would fit on my desk. That was an i7 chip and I was happy with it. At the time, the 3930 was a very good CPU. 8 years later my HP dies and I don't want to repair it so I put the build into service. Needless to say I had a few issues but just grabbing the drive from the old HP and installing it in the build was the easiest thing I ever did. I don't really need the top notch CPU and not even sure I have the option to upgrade just needed a computer to run my business and other things we all do and I'm not a gamer.

    "Needless to say I had a few issues but just grabbing the drive from the old HP and installing it in the build was the easiest thing I ever did."
    Is that when the optional updates starting showing or is that a recent issue?
    --- When is the time when the optional updates list started?

    Thank you for that winver information.

    I just noticed that you have another thread "Users created" 03 Dec 2019
    Users created
    Personally I'd like to recommend solving those issues in that thread.

    You also have a couple of other threads involved during Dec 2019.

    Eventually you can move on to creating a thread dealing with the issues brought up in this thread.
    --- Include this thread to be referred to.

    You'll have to decide what order to deal with each one of those issues
