Ya, you have to have your machine updated, you can`t leave it up to auto update to do it.

It should be set like this and you should be doing updates manually.

The only day with multiple updates will be Tuesday.

The rest of the week there should only be Microsoft Security Essential updates, usually 1 or 2 a day.

Windows 7 auto-driver update
Ok, I downloaded the ethernet drivers for my PC. But when I installed them, Windows 7 auto-updated the drivers to Microsoft ones.
