For me WU sets a restore point before installing any updates. I thought there was a setting to enable it but I couldn't find it. So maybe it does it every time.

Updates are certainly recorded in System Restore. I suspect it is done after the download /install.

I still create one manually before updating, just in case the update creates a nuisance, " glitch" etc.
My philosophy better to be sure than sorry..

I was a little spooked about this as well.

At least there's nothing to worry about according to others.

My Windows 7 updater is not working either. It stopped functioning January 9, 2012. I have tried Mr. Fixit and instructions from Windows site. I am using PCTools Spyware Doctor (was spyware doctor plus antivirus). Because I'm using this I have disabled Wndows Defender, but am still using Windows Firewall. I had stopped using PCTools due to trojans and went to MSE, but deleted that and went back to PCTools after problem fixed. I use Registry Mechanic for Registry cleanup so no remnants, or so I am led to believe. Not getting security updates (6 in holding plus one optional) is worst of it.
Windows 7 Home Premium, Comcast high-speed internet, Netgear wireless router-this is base station and hard wired to router. I don't think Firefox 10 or Internet Explorer 9 have settings to interfere.
I would appreciate any suggestions you have.

Hi jamescc4, and welcome to Seven Forums.

A lot of times trojans, malware etc. will block a system from getting Windows Updates.

Also, a Registry cleaner is not wise to use either.

I could be wrong, but you very well could be still infected.

I'd do a full scan with these two great programs to be sure. They are free.
