Windows 7: New updates to Win 7 every day - really?

New updates to Win 7 every day - really?

Why does MS send new updates every day? I am so tired of installing new updates. Why can't they get all of their critical updates together in one big rev once each month or so? That is what we did when I was developing software. I feel like MS is just trying to stay relevant. They want people to think they are really doing something.

I have an iPad which never bothers me with updates and has no security problems, so when Apple gets a little better interface for printing to common printers, I will say goodbye to Windows for good!

Windows updates come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Occasionally they will push out an emergency patch outside of this cycle, but those are rare.

If you are installing updates daily, you must have a new build that needs a lot of updates and it's doing what it can before a reboot. This cycle should stop soon.

Well, there is something wrong if you are getting Windows updates on a daily basis. Are these updates for other applications on your machine (like Java, Firefox, etc)?

Maybe they are MSE virus definition updates.
Look at your Windows Update History and see what updates you are getting.

They are updates to Win 7, not virus updates. I do not use MS virus apps. But tonite I am too tired to pursue this issue any longer. I will try to get back to it later this week as I leaving on a long trip tomorrow am. Thanks.

When you get a chance, post a screen print of your Update History to show what you are getting daily.

Do the updates say "Windows Defender?" Those updates are daily.
Otherwise we need more information, like the name of the updates you keep getting...

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.
