Some updates need to be installed before other updates can be installed.
It is always advisable to have updates turned on, even if you use the setting 'check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them'. This setting is what I use for Windows Updates, with this it allows you to see what update/s will be downloaded/installed.
It was Windows Genuine Notifications Installation Wizard & Service pack 3 as it said i may have to back my system up & that sounds heavy duty!!
I can hear something happening in the background but when i hover my arrow over the yellow shield, it asks me whether i want custom or recommended install all the time. IE 8 then IE 7, i don't use these, i just use Firefoix so i guess i don't need to install them or i could maybe if i ned to at a later date!!
If i shit down pc, will it start from where leaft of when i turn on again!
I thought i could just let it run whilst i'm out but i seee i have to keep accepting by clicking boxes.
IE 8 and 7 are part of the operating system, you need to install them even if you only use Firefox. If I were you I would choose "Recommended Install" so that you don't inadvertently miss a needed update.
Ok, i installed that, took a while, restarted & then repaired my messenger & did something to OE. I assume thats it as its not automatically telling me about other updates at the mo!! & that i guess i'm up to date!! ?
I just get the 'Windows genuine advantage notification Wizard' after i boot!
