    You should be fine do you have automatic update activated? It’s under your system properties tab. I have update set to notify me before it installs anything

    I see that has a good thing :) but if auto update is set you should be notified about all critical updates & you can always run update from your start menu to check for other updates

    Go to windows update site and run the scan, if there are none listed, then you are up to date.

    This is the last update I'm showing and I do pretty well to keep my systems up to date.

    Ahh, but now I see that is when I installed them and not when they originally came out. Yes.. yes...

    KB833407:
    A critical update is available to remove unacceptable symbols from the Bookshelf Symbol 7 font that is included with Microsoft Office 2003. The Bookshelf Symbol 7 font is contained in the Bssym7.ttf file.

    The rest are "recommended", not critical.
