Re: Review downloaded but uninstalled updates
How to read the WindowsUpdate.log file
Scroll to the very bottom, then start scrolling up. Look for the most
recent line that includes "Installation Ready: The following updates are
downloaded and ready for installation."
PS: If the sentence after that says, "To install the updates, an
administrator should log on to this computer and Windows will prompt with
further instructions," consider it a big hint.
