Excellent. Now let's make sure that ALL updates have been installed.

Believe it or not. Win 7 can indicate that you are up-to-date and then turn around and tell you that you have updates to be installed.

Go to Windows Update: WIN | type Windows Update | ENTER

We want to make sure that receive all possible updates.
In the left-hand side, click on Change settings |
checkmark all four of the boxes | OK

Approve any dialog boxes presented. Let Windows install any update features.

  1. In the left-hand column, click on Check for Updates
  2. Install all critical updates.
  3. Restart you computer.
Keep repeating those three steps until all critical updates are installed.
Do NOT trust that display on the right-hand side which may say that you are up-to-date. You keep repeating those three steps until after performing the three steps there are no more updates to be installed.

Now that was for the critical updates.
Repeat that same procedure for ALL Important updates.

After all Important updates are installed, then
Repeat that same procedure for ALL Optional updates.

An important word about updates.
You look at the list of updates and if you see an update related to .NET then, INSTALL THAT UPDATE BY ITSELF BUT STILL IN SEQUENCE.
Why you ask? Because there are a couple of those .NET updates that will take forever. You will think that your computer is hung!

How to tell that update is still running?
CTRL + SHIFT + ESC key combo will pop-up the Task Manager where you will see that Windows Update is still running.

Now the other word of caution. Under Optional updates you will be presented with a list of about 35 language updates.

You can hide those updates so that aren't continually notified of those updates. When you click on 35 optional updates are available, then you a) highlight all of the language updates,
b) right-click anywhere in the highlighted list.
c) click on Hide Updates,
d) OK button.

Now you will be able to select the optional updates again, but this time all of the language updates are hidden.

In any case, work you way down from critical, to important, to optional and keep going back to the update well until you come up with an empty bucket.

Finished. I kept coming up with a request to update my Canon Printer each time I checked for updates. Nothing else showed up. I have 55 updates installed and 3 .NET framework updates installed as well. Never ran into the NET you mentioned and no other updates were found. I could not locate or did I come across the 35 languages dialog you mentioned.

One other problem: Three separate Intel windows open each time I restart asking to run the software. Can't get rid of that. What a mess.
