as we are only two weeks into the new year its hardly surprising there are no updates required, updates usually come out on "patch Tuesday" of each month so may well be some tomorrow .

I prefer to have things set to Download updates but let me choose whether to install them - it gives more control and lets me have on my computer what I want and not what Microsoft thinks I should have.
