    AU only updating Windows products; AV listed Canon updates too


    Hello all.

    My AV software warns me when my system isn't up to date and so today when I looked, it offered two windows [critical I think] and one canon, being my printer [recommended]. When I activated the AU facility, it only offered the two windows updates.

    How can I 'tell it' to update with the recommended products also?

    Thanks.

    You can look in the control Panel to see if your apps were updated or in device manager under printers.

    Hi and thanks for your post. I had already checked and no they haven't been updated.

    Why is there no facility [like there used to be] for users to select which updates are installed? My AV indicated 3 updates were available, but AU only installed the two Windows critical updates and not the updates for my printer!

    Most annoying. They've taken control of my choices!!!

    Srsly, it is annoying but I'm not nuts, okay?

    Thanks again
