Not needed, but no harm if downloaded and left to get on with things in the background.

Every time you get the up-date it runs on your computer.There is no need to run it manually unless you think that you have problems on your computer.How do I know this.Because it said so on the Automatic up-date this morning.

lol, yep must try harder i guess! thanks for the help guys
