  3. Is Slimware Updates a legitimate part of Microsoft? Or is it a 3rd party company?

    * Original Title: Slimware Driver Updates

    1.Is Slimware Updates a legitimate part of Microsoft? Or is it a 3rd party company?

    2. Why did it and Slimwares Utilities download with the Windows 10 that was forced on me, and place icons on my Desktop?( Although 10 isn't as bad as I was led to believe it would be.)

    3. Why would I need about 18 updated drivers if Windows 10 downloaded only TWO days prior?

    4. Also, unrelated to my above question, where is the listing of all installed programs? It used to open automatically when you hovered the mouse at the bottom of the Start Menu. I only see a listing on the Control Panel "Programs" listing to "Uninstall
    or Change" heading. The two lists were different. I'm referring to the "tree"one could open from the Start Menu.

    Thanks.
