Hi

 

The below is on my PC.
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x86 SP1

Potential problem:

Before MS update was run: Pic1
No updates were found nor installed - This is since MS update automatically closes a few seconds after the "Check for updates" button is pressed.

After MS update was run: Pic2

Note the created and modified dates change on the files.

Questions:

Why does MS update window close?
Why the new created & modified dates?
Is it as designed or malicious?

If you review the log for updates it should tell you what it did. In most cases the fine print says it needs to update the Windows Updater and it will close on it's own. If you wait a few minutes it should auto launch again on its own unless something prevented it or it ran into an update issue on it's own.

Yes, it's normal behavior
