A few points here Paul. I appreciate I must go now and follow these instructions but at present what is happening is that I have to go and manually install my updates. I am told updates are ready to be installed when I turn on the PC from time to time. Other thing with Windows 7 is that one has to give permission to allow the updates to take place unlike with Windows XP.
