Going with this your Windows updates should have updated it a fortnight ago.

Maybe check your updates and see if it has already been installed.

I've had an idea for a solution, being as I don't seem to be able to install the patch from 2010. What if I were to uninstall Windows Media Player and reinstall an up to date one?

I would try, WMP | Help | 'check for Updates' before considering uninstalling and reinstalling.

Hi lotvic

I tried that, although I have to say that I wasn't holding out a lot of hope as I didn't think that a patch was/is the same as an update? Anyway, I gave it a go and this was the result...

"Your computer is running the most recent version of Windows Media Player and all of its components. No update is available at this time"

But this result would also seem to negate my own idea of uninstalling and reinstalling, for the same reason.

Basically there is no problem, Windows has determined you do not need the update, forget about is best course of action.

Is Windows Media Player working ok? If it is then ignore Secunia.

Hi Guys

Well, yes that's one way to look at it. But on the other hand if you're going to ignore Secunia, then there's no point running it, is there?

As it is this laptop is running mega slow. It takes over 4 minutes to load and when it has it's like wading uphill, through treakle. It's my wifes laptop, she hardly ever uses it these days, lifes too short.

Everything is up to date, there are no bugs, viruses, trojans, malware, spyware, it's as clean as a whistle. I've run every test I can think of and a few that others have suggested, but all to no avail. I've defragged and optimized, using Auslogic. But nomatter what I try the result is always the same.

i don't know what else to try, hence I'm left picking over the bones of the most unlikely things that are left. They are old Microsoft updates and patches that were nere installed, for whatever reason at the time.
