I have the option "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them" check so that updates are downloaded when I have my computer on. I find that if I have the "Never check for updates" option checked and I do a check manually it takes forever. Now I find that I am getting a yellow shield on my shut down button which says that downloaded updates will be installed before shutdown. I now do not have a choice of which downloaded updates to install as there does not seem to be a way of stopping the install. I would like to check each number before installing.
In a forum post someone has mentioned that if you uncheck "Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates" (still have "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them" checked) you will only get security updates downloaded with the yellow warning on the shut down button and no other updates? Is this correct? I am assuming in this case you will have to do a manual check for all other updates? This is really not what I want.
