My computer does not seem to prompt me to update Windows as my old OS (XP) did.

In the update settings, i do have the box that states "Install Updates automatically" checked.

I need to click "Check for updates" in order to see important updates to download.

If i just go into Windows update, all it shows is Optional updates available but no important updates. But when i Check for Updates, then i notice there are indeed important updates to download.

I thought this was supposed to be an automatic process.

Thanks for the advice Broni.

One question though.

The hotfix attachment says it's for Vista.
Will this be safe to use for my Windows 7?

Vista and 7 are based on a very same kernel and they're very similar OSes.
I'd give it a shot.
If it's not compatible with 7, it'll most likely tell you.
