Hi All
I was checking Add & Remove Programs to see if there was anything I could get rid of when I discovered all the Windows SEcurity Updates were missing. A friend in the computer business says that I have been hacked. Is this likely? Can I get them back.

Not really an answer to your problem but have you checked windows update to make sure you are up to date?

I haven't checked as yet. I was more worriewd about the possibilty of being hacked

Is 'Show Updates' ticked in Add/Remove programs?

Hi VoG
I am a bit redfaced. Show updates was unticked.
Everything OK now.Thanks again Hiwatt and VoG

Your friend in the computer business doesn't seem too reliable...:-)

By the way, if you install Belarc it will reveal any missing Microsoft security updates (part of US legislation on the subject!)

Hi Stuartli
I am beginning to think so too. However his business is thriving. Thanks for your comment.
