We're August 8th and I'm concerned because the last Windows Update that was applied to my computer dates from July 11th. I'm using Windows 7 Pro, SQL Server, Office 2007 and Visual Studio and I'm wondering if: a) there's a problem with the computer not updating itself or b) Microsoft just hasn't had any updates in almost a month.

So I was wondering where I could check to see when the last Windows Updates were released.
