Guest Posted April 17 Share Posted April 17 (edited) Hello, my ESET Smart Security tells me to install system-updates but Windows tells me that there are no updates available. Can someone explain me why ESET is showing that and Windows doesnt show any updates ? I set it to critical in the ESET settings. Also there is more to it: I do not want to manually click on "Search for updates" because this is not recommended by Microsoft. If i manually click on "search for updates" in my Windows settings, they might give me untested updates or unstable updates that are not recommended for my system. That is also the reason why you always get way more updates when you manually search for them instead of letting Windows automatically install recommended updates that are released and tested for my system. So now i am a little bit confused why ESET tells me there is one critical update from 12-2022 and 13 optional updates available when Windows says there is not and was just updated automatically. And i also set it to only inform me about critical updates in ESET settings. I already got this popup yesterday right after Windows automatically installed the latest updates around 2:13AM in the morning, as you can see in the screenshot. As you can see in the screenshots: - ESET shows a popup that updates are availabe: 1 critical from 12-2022 and 13 optional updates right after i installed the latest updates. Windows just updated the system automatically today at 2:13AM and i ESET notified me about this right afterwards. - Windows shows no updates and my system is up to date - I also uploaded a screenshot that shows the update log from 2:13AM and ESET settings Here is are few sentences that confirm what i said at the beginning by Microsoft themselves: "As Microsoft revealed, only people who clicked “Check for Updates” got bitten by Windows 10’s file deletion bug. When you click the “Check for Updates” button, Microsoft gives you updates early, skipping a normal part of the testing process. “We Encourage You Not to Click ‘Check for Updates'” In other words, Microsoft intentionally rolls out big updates like this slowly to Windows 10 users automatically when released, checking for problems to ensure you’ll be safe. But, if you ever head to Settings > Windows Update and manually click “Check for Updates,” Microsoft throws that careful process out the window and installs the latest update on your PC without any further testing. That why dont like to click on it manually. I assume that Microsoft still handles it that way.
