Windows updates and yellow shield

Hi - I've got my updates option set to download but let me decide what/when to install. I used to have the yellow shield notification in the System Tray but it's vanished.

This means that the first I know about updates is when I shut down and have the option of installing either everything or nothing. I'm sure somewhere there must be a list of 'pending' updates - could someone remind me where, please?

Or how I can get the shield back, which would be helpful.

Thanks

buteman - it is already, that's what I meant by writing: I've got my updates option set to download but let me decide what/when to install.

Aah, on second thoughts and after writing the above couple of lines - perhaps I'd selected the option just to download, without the 'Notify me' bit.

Thanks!
