If you have 32-bit programs such as Microsoft Office, you will get regular updates for those.

Hello kevvyb

You will still need 32bit updates for 32bit programs such as office. Trust windows update, it knows what its doing.

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.
