    I ignore the pop-up window from the notifications area telling me Windows updates are ready to install, I'm busy. Then I'm ready to do it, but there's no icon in the notification area to click to do the install.

    I've even gone as far as to do a manual install, just to make sure I've got the latest update. I know I'm fully updated, and then the pop-up window comes up telling me it has that update ready to install again!

    Is there a way to retrieve the updates Automatic Updates has ready to install? Reboot?!

    Will manually updating confuse Automatic Updates?

    TIA, Dan
