Windows 7: No windows update for the last month

No windows update for the last month

I have changed windows update option as soon as i installed 7 so that i can download and install updates manually.

Anyway, I've been doing updates probably once a week like you should, and for the last month I've not had any updates. Any ideas why?

Thanks
Dan

It's also known as Patch Tuesday. On rare occasions (if a security vulnerability warrants it), Microsoft might release a patch out-of-band (meaning not on patch Tuesday)...but that is pretty rare.

well, thats patch tuesday. They regularly release updates on that day, if its a critical patch it will be released "out of band" meaning as soon as its ready.

If you use Windows Defender, updates come every few days.

I was getting many updates weekly also, and often one or more would fail. Then one week they had all installed successfully. Haven't had ANY for about 3 weeks.
