brings back update notifications for Windows 8 Windows Update Notifier enables Windows 8 users to desktop notification about new available Windows Updates. Although Windows 8 provides an option to "Check for updates but let me choose...", it no longer notifies you when new updates become available. That means you have to manually launch the Windows Update applet to check if there are any new updates. This program fixes this problem and brings back a system tray notification that pops up whenever new updates are detected - muck like it used to be in previous Windows version. Windows Update Notifier fixes another annoying issue related to Windows Security Essentials, which is now integrated with Windows 8 as "Windows Defender". The original WSE used to have an option to automatically update virus definitions on a regular basis - in Windows 8, these update are now provided via "Windows Update" and you will only receive automatic definition updates if you selected to "Install updates automatically". To fix this, Windows Update Notifier includes an option to receive automatic Windows Defender updates without having to choose the "Install updates automatically" option for all Windows updates.
