1. When you say not have a public IP are you saying that only places with a registered domain IP?
(so the info on the net about clicking on an attachment doesn't apply? and it is only people on a corp intranest where the intranet is connected to a registered domain?)

No, not directly related to domains. Retail Internet users don't have public IP on their own PC (only their ISP router has one) so no worries here.

2. not sure what SMB volume is.

It's when you share a drive or a folder on your PC, so your laptop can read/write the files which are on your desktop for example.

3. For myself installing windows updates is not highly recommended. Doing this makes my system unstable. Their updates can and do cause endless hours of updating other software. Requiring other updates etc.

If the updates can't be installed then something is wrong. I can't say where your problem is but it can help in installing few updates at a time, not all of them in one step (if you have a lot of updates to install).
