Windows Update Center Says I'm Up to Date, but I'm not

Hello. New member-first post.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I have the preferences with Windows Update set to automatically download and install updates. When right-clicking Computer > Properties, I find I do not have SP1 installed however, when I visit the Windows Update Centerand check for updates, it says I am up to date.

Can anyone provide a reason why the discrepancy?

Thank you for your assistance.

Is this ongoing or on a relatively fresh install?
Have you rebooted since the last updates were applied?

Exactly what build number does it say you do have?
Can easily be found by using dxdiag it'll be one the first page.

Seems to be ongoing. Some updates were installed yesterday. The computer has been rebooted several times in the last 24 hours. Windows Update history shows several updates over recent days/months. Just doesn't seem to install or offer SP1.

Sorry, not familiar with dxdiag... can you work me through this?

just type dxdiag in the start bar search box
you can answer no to the question it'll ask answering yes will just make it take longer.
Info will be on the first tab of the window that appears.

On the keyboard hit the Windows Flag key and the Pause key. On that page look and see if states you have SP-1.

dxdiag says Windows 7 Home Premium (6.1 build 7600). Also, should have said earlier that this is not a fresh install of W7. It was the original installation that came on the laptop when pruchased.

okay well you are definitely missing it, (should be 7601) let's try this route.

This is getting exceedingly rare I actually found this info on MS's site instead of here...
Seems to cover all the bases though.

You do not have the option of downloading Windows 7 SP1 when you use Windows Update to check for updates

Not familiar with the Pause key. Using a Dell laptop. Can't find anything on the keyboard with that name or Break key either.

Don't worry about that, it's just the shortcut for opening the system properties window, which you were doing by right clicking my computer and choosing properties.
...same window.


Check the post I made above, I think it will sort you out.
