    Lacking Windows Updates


    Hi I was told I was lacking some updates from this thread: BSOD Error code 139
    When I go to Windows update I find that my PC is "up to date". I keep checking for updates, and I keep getting "up to date". I also checked to see if I had any hidden updates, and found there were none. Any reason I am not getting all updates?
