Just bought a new HP laptop. Set to notify but not download or install updates. First day it offered 63 updates. Two failed to install at the time but installed later in the day. On the second day I checked Windows Update and said it was up to date. Later I received further updates in drips and drabs. Eventually got the SP1 update. I think Windows updates in a particular order before SP1 is offered.
