Windows 7: Sept. Updates vs Oct. Updates?

I wouldn't advise installing Nvidia or any other driver updates through the Microsoft Windows updates, far better to get them from the manufacturer's website, after checking the forums there as to the best drivers - the latest aren't always the most reliable.

My motto is that if a driver ain't broke, don't fix it - i.e. if your system is running well then don't change drivers for the sake of it.

Thanks Seffrid, but I have already learned from this site to NOT install drivers thru MS updates. My problem is that I don't understand enough about drivers to even know if I should update. As far as I know, I'm still on drivers that came with my PC that I bought in Feb.,2012. Seems like I've seen some 'warnings or errors' in my Events Viewer that refer to drivers but that's all I know.

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.
