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?

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

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