Hi Everyone!

    I just started using Windos 7 & I was going over all my settings today & made sure my Automatic updates(recommended) was set"on" & I noticed the Microsoft Updates option & shut it off,noot realizing it would disappear & cannot be found anywhere......Where did it go & did I need to have it?

    I also have Secunia PSI...................Wouldn't the Automatic Updates take care of all the updates by Microsoft/Windows?

                                                                                       Thank you-Kwik

Pull up the program menu, in the list of Windows stuff it is at the bottom Windows Update.

Some other well written information is contained here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/windows-vista-updates-and-extras/

Specifically the first part, while the screen shots are not quite up to date with windows 7 it navigates the same.

This tutorial here should help as well: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-update-windows/

Hope these are helpful. :)
