No bluez you got to put them inmate a lot of it is security stuff. The updates will be stored in the machine to look them up go to Updates see pic and in the setting s choose what I advised but that is my choice it is a whole lot safer.

The easiest way is to create an image of the installation once all updates have been applied:
Imaging with free Macrium

You can then restore that image (which contains the original installation + all the updates) if you need to.

Alternatively, download them and store them on an external USB, to apply at a later date:
Windows Updates Downloader (WUD)


The first method is less work.

What Golden said ^

I've used Windows Updates Downloader (WUD) plenty of times, works well especially when I have to slipsteam the Windows 7 media with the latest updates.
