automatic windows updates

  bpzoom 10:59 04 Feb 2003

WIN XP Home edition, I have always opted for automatic Windows Update downloads. To the best of my knowledge I have not received any for many weeks, and my setting is still correctly pointed at auto updates. As this seems most unusual can anyone say if there has been a pause in these updates for the past month? I chickened out of loading the Service pack 1, and was happy to rely on the regular updates. Now they have stopped and I am getting worried.Thanks.

There were two updates about 2 weeks.

In internet Explorer > Tool > Windows upadtes...

Have a look for yourself. Any critical upadtes etc will be shown...

Thanks, I take it they are still functioning then, and I will sit back and wait. I have manually downloaded a few today, just wanted to clear a few doubts. I will wrap this one up then.

I have mine configured to be advised when updates are available. That way you can look what they involve first before downloading. Updates are downloading right this minute in the background.
