help with updates

hi...we purchased our computer,w/xp preinstalled, a few yrs ago from Walmart. First puter we ever had. My two teenagers used it most of the time for online games, chats, etc. A big flood came to our area and we had to move a few yrs ago. I put the computer in storage. After we got moved I turned the computer on and I noticed I was missing alot of updates. Come to find out my son had turned off auto update (without my knowledge) because it interrupted his gaming. I reviewed update history but I'm very confused. I don't know what to do. Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated...thanks


Here is the update list:

Just go back to windows updates and let it show you what downloads you haven't gotten. And from there they'll download.

And some of those are super important too so go into Control Panel and turn "Auto Update" back on.

you can spesify a time for auto updates, or say notify me but don't automatically install. Both of those will work fine and won't interupt a session of intensive gameing so their really is no reason not to check the updates.

If you were asking what ones to get the awnser is All of them
