Stranger and stranger. Today I got an alert that Windows couldn't update so I opened Update and it was giving error 80248014 - Cannot Update.

I ticked and rebooted and updates worked ... and it promptly offered me the graphics driver update to ... 2202. I accepted it.

I don't know how the box got unticked - perhaps the default for a W7 install is for it to be un-ticked.
