Windows 7: Did you try unoffical updates?

I believe some of the updates were released, but not all.

The others likely remain in the hotfix or experimental category.

Since they're now issuing things to Windows Update once they're official, I wouldn't go messing with experimental / unofficial updates. Even of the things that came out before, there were later, better versions that leaked, too. In some cases if you'd installed v1, you couldn't get v2 to go in.

It was one thing to take your chances when the release date and updates were still a month or two off. It's another story now.

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.
