Windows Critical Updates

  Nick Dalton 10:18 06 Jul 04

I've run this recently & have 3 critical updates to install. Reviewed & installed. Got a sucessful installation message. But when I run the update again I still get told to download the same 3 critical updates ....any ideas?

When you go look "updates installed" does it see the three as installed.?

Yes it does. The updates are all about windows explorer version 6 but I think I'm version 5 thought not sure how to tell could this be the reason?

Help menu\About will give you the version.

Try Big Fix click here
and see what it comes up with. You may have to cut and paste the link.

so if the version is 5 or 5.5 as I suspect (as I've had messages saying they detect version 5 & can speed me up) I have a few questions:-

Why would update offer patches for version 6?
Should I go to version 6 & how do I do that...use this sites download area?

thanks for advice

reviewed it last night & it is version 6 . So does anyone know why I can't get past these 3 patches?

Try instaling them one at a time, maybe it is just one that is causing the problem.

Somewhere microsoft advises if problems install each one seperataly and maybe rebooting each time

Looking at the thread again - From the information you give It would seem that you are on version 6 and that you have the latest patches.

I am aware that microsoft update has a bug where search for patches can advise that you require when in fact you allready have them.
