So long as you have a whole oad of updates already installed, that's fine - the next scheduled date for updates to be released is the 13th Dec.
Unless critically important, MS attempts to schedule Windows Updates for the Second Tuesday of every month.

Unfortunately, Office never has liked sticking to the rules, and so issues them pretty much as they like - although you'll never see them unless you have Microsoft Updates switched on rather than just Windows Updates.

MSE or Defender Updates will come down as often as they are issued, and your internal updater finds them (often every day)

What Noel DP says is correct.

Re your update settings -
* I suggest you change them to notify you but let you choose when to download them.
This way you know exactly what is being installed & when..
Do a few at a time only rather than "oodles" at once.

* Always make sure you have a current system restore point prior to downloading anything.

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
