    Update windows manually, how ?

    I want to manually update Win7 -- automatic updates are disabled
    - I got caught twice last year with bad updates
    - I am not having any problems with Windows
    - trial (3rd day) of Kaspersky Internet Security, "Safe Money" (banking feature) is nagging me to update Windows

    In "Windows Updates" window I have already clicked "Check for Updates"

    If I click "Install Now" will it also automatically update Windows ... as well as updating the updater
    - never have I seen "update the updater"

    I do not want a total auto-update of Windows

    Once the updater is updated, how would I do a selective manual update of Windows by each KB in turn ?
    MS tute Install Windows updates in Windows 7 is not clear enough for me
    - I vaguely remember a list of KBs that I could selectively install (or ignore) one at a time.
    - the last manual Win7 update I did was in 2013

    Windows 10 Pro x64, Windows 8.1 Pro x64, Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1,

    This is just an update to the updater. It will not change your manual settings to automatic. You can continue to apply manual updates once the updater is updated.

    if you last updated manually in 2013 then your going to be missing alot of security updates

    Win 7 x64 Home Premium (and x86 VirtualBox VM)/Win10

    Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data

    If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

    Please also post the C:\Windows\windowsudpate.log file
