in vista how do you see what the updates are prior to download like in xp.
i can see the results in history afterwards ok.

Yes, you can "View Available Updates" before you install them.

thanks, but i cannot find that option.

Start the update process (Download the updates)

Whenit's complete you can then view the details before you install (Of course if you have automatic updates enabled it will install them anyway) Have most of my machines set to "Download and notify me"

That way I can look at them first....Particularly hardware drivers as MS are always out of date with drivers anyway.

Instead of having automatic update you can change to (Notify me but do not download or install) option. This allows a view beforehand.
