Go to Start in the bottom left corner of the Task Bar
Click it
Now click Run
Copy & paste the below into the Open: line

%windir%\softwaredistribution\reportingevents.log

See what is logged, you may already have the updates since you have updates set to automatic.

hi bingo24,,,i did what you suggested,,followed link & did the new install but when i went to the windows update page & had my system checked for the latest updates i got the same message as before,,that there are no new updates..

from what i gather by looking at my log file for the last 2 months i don't see any KB.......... patches,,or am i wrong...i posted the log file for september in a previous reply.

no error messages.when i hit express install on the update page,it scans my computer for missing updates but the result is 0 updates .when i check my update history on the same page ,my last update was in july..
i did a sfc /scannow with my windows install disk in comp. then i checked for updates but 0 updates. i shut off my blink anti virus & did an update check with no updates, i scanned my comp for malicious software,no bad stuff on comp.
i did uninstall windows defender a while back,,maybe something got deleted along with defender that is causing this problem,,got me stumped..

i tried the 2 methods on that page,the automatic file & the command prompt way,,,still getting 0 updates available.

what i may end up doing is on the patch tuesday finding the patches & downloading them from another site, each one separately.
