Hi,
I found these which really help to find out which upgrades are needed.

Does anybody know if this is a safe site to download these from?

Your best place to get patches for Windows is directly from Microsoft.

why not just turn on auto updates for a day or two & then windows offers
only what is required for your pc to be up to snuff.

Hi Doub
Thats what I was thinking about. This site seems to patch you through to the
microsoft download section. Seems it is just a nice site that organises them
in a nice clear way.

As long as you can confirm that the download comes directly from MS (checking the status bar), then you're alright.

Best reason is to protect yourself from error in the automated and
semi-automated processess of Automatic and/or Windows Update.

Its just a matter of Common Sense Computing.
