I think you meant to say “and leave Windows Automatic Update turned ON,”?
Nope, turn it off. Did I mis-type something???
Personally on this machine while I do typically wait to install patches I do not pay much attention to MS-DEFCON.

Whatta mess indeed! I now have 25 Win 7 updates in limbo and I’m waiting. Somebody needs to tell Microsoft that summer vacation is over!
