Does anyone know exactly what is the update to the "Dell Desktop
System Software" - what it does and whether it is necessary to install
this update?

See:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/type.aspx?c=u...

In the description:
"Desktop System Software (DSS) is a utility that provides
critical updates and patches for your operating system."


- but isn't this done by microsoft / windows update?

This is the equivelent of windows update, but it updates dell device
drivers, and dell supplied software. MS doesnt do that.
