Post by Portisheadradio »

Can someone please tell me the significance of the red exclamation marks in the update list 'Type' column?

Thanks

Haha, hover your mouse over them . . :)

PS: It's a good idea to go to the Update Manager's Menu > Edit > Preferences, and read up on the Levels section.

Thanks and if any other newbies are reading this it means 'Security Update'.

I did read the section but guess I missed that bit.
