How do I view updates before download? as I do not want SP2 downloaded yet

Don't download them!

Read all about them before download at the Windows Update site.

Every time I switch my computer on it says updates are ready to install and I would want to know which ones they are.!

So, presumably, you have the little multi-coloured balloon showing in your Task Bar.

Click the balloon and you will be given the option to 'review' the updates before you install (or don't install, if you so wish).

Thanks, I do not want SP2 just yet

Turn auto update off, and update manually. That way you can choose which you want.
