    Hey All,

    My system is setup to download updates automatically, but prompt me to install them. I've downloaded a few updates (WMP, IE 7) but decided to install them at a later time. Well, I'd like to install them now, but the little yellow shield isnt in the system tray anymore. Is there a way to install them? I went to the microsoft website and the automatic scan says I have all of the most recent updates (yeah, I have them, but cant find them now).

    Thanks!

    If you don't see the yellow shield when you click the << to expand the notification bar, the update have likely been applied.
