How to change general Windows Update settings (you may have to run as
administrator):

http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...16bb91033.mspx

http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...768a81033.mspx

Microsoft recommend you opt for "Install updates automatically" on a daily
basis.

If you've passed on an update, you should still be able to find it in the
Windows Update log. You can also download updates directly from Microsoft
Download Center:

unchecked the opt out of microsoft update? That's ok though thank you you've

You can, just take a look in the log. You will also find the KB number there
(the update's "ID"). Glad to help.
