We've reviewed your WindowsUpdate.log. It tells us:
1. Automatic Updates is configured to the "Download but notify" setting:
2007-12-13 09:18:28:750 1104 c8c AU # Approval type: Pre-install notify
2007-12-13 09:18:28:750 1104 c8c AU # Auto-install minor updates: No (User
2. No updates have been installed since 11 Dec-07.
3. Eight (8) updates have been downloaded and await approval to install,
hence Automatic Updates is honoring the "Download but notify" setting:
2007-12-13 09:26:11:593-0800 1 189 102
0 0 AutomaticUpdates Success Content Install Installation Ready: The
updates are downloaded and ready for installation. To install the updates,
administrator should log on to this computer and Windows will prompt with
further instructions: - Security Update for Windows XP (KB944653) -

4. No updates for Windows Defender have been downloaded yet this week. A
Defender update may have downloaded and be ready to install now.
5. You have a third-party Windows theme installed
). Such themes can wreak havoc with
Windows and Automatic Updates. I'd recommend uninstalling it:
> 2007-12-11 09:35:40:312 8272 26bc Misc = Process:
6. It would appear that you may have a beta version of Secunia Software
> 2007-12-10 02:52:29:250 7452 1ad8 Misc = Process: E:\Program
> Files\Secunia\PSI (BETA)\PSI.exe
I would strongly recommend uninstalling it and relying on Automatic Updates
to tell you what updates the machine needs.
Conclusion: Automatic Updates is working properly and no updates have
