In Vista Windows Update has its own option in the Control Panel. All that happens when you visit windows/Microsoft Update in IE7 is that it opens the appropriate Control Panel icon. Therefore go straight to Windows Update in the Control Panel.

Well that's all that happens when you visit Windows Update in Vista anyway - you're just skipping the traditional route.
