Updates, using Windows XP Mode?

I have Windows XP Mode running to see if I can play some older PC games. I installed one game and I got a pop-up telling me there are updates, 112 of them.

What are you asking? Windows XP in XP mode is the same as any XP and will look for 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.
