Decided to update all the fixes, patches etc. However, there are about 20 that have no relevance to my setup, is there any way I can stop them appearing every time I do a Windows update?

If they appear then they should be relevent to your setup. WIndows Update should only pick those which aplly to your PC.

Can you give examples of ones which you don't think apply?

If you really want to..

Run the Windows Update and then on the left choose "Personalise Windows update" I think this allows you to hide some updates...

There are 14 and these are 4 of them. In all honesty I can't see any advantage from them. The rest are even more obscure.

Fair do's

I think there is an option under "Personalise Windows Update" which allows you to remove updates from the list.

Do the scan then on the left choose "Personalise Windows Update". You'll see a list under "Choose which categories and updates to display on Windows Update" You can then hide them from there.
