Windows Update Problems

I have windows update set to automatically download and install any updates. However, I have not had any updates for several weeks now. I appreciate that there may of course be no updates available but when I clicked on the update in the start menu I was presented with the MSN site.
I run XP home with service pack 3.
I also have zone alarm and avast anti virus installed. Windows update is allowed in zone alarm.
Update in the control panel is also set for automatic updates.
Am I worrying unduly?

I believe automatic updates, are only used for critical ones. You should look at the update page that will tell you of any updates that are required, if you need them just click install

This link click here should take you to the MS Update Site.

Why your update link has changed to MSN I have no idea, but it is obviously not right.

There have been several updates in the past few weeks including an urgent one for IE to protect it from `nasties`.

I would also suggest a scan with some good anti-malware in case you have picked up something that is causing re-direction.
