    Apologies in advance for the silly question but I am unsure about something.

    Currently running 10.6.2 on an iMac (2009)

    Haven't updated the system software in a while and thought its about time I get the latest versions available to me. So i checked the system update menu and these results showed up: (scrren grab attached)

    Whats the best way to go about it?

    -Tick all boxes and update the whole lot in one go?


    -Tick the MAc OS X update first, update that and then do the other 5 items seperately?

    -Also will I loose my wifi settings or will it all stay in tact?

    Thanks! :confused::)

    Yep. Software Update knows how to handle them.
    You won't lose any settings.

    Leave them all checked, and then run Software Update again when it finishes. Most of the updates from the last year only work on 10.6.8, so they do not show up for you yet.
