    Windows updates issue?

    Anybody having problems with the Vista updates at mo? Everytime I shut down for the past 4 days it shows 1 update. Anybody else got this or is my PC a bit squiffy?

    What is the error you are getting?

    No error, just update everytime I turn off PC. If I come off and on 4 times in a day then notice to update is still there

    What appears to be the problem, info here is a bit too vague, how have you got your updates set up? Are you allowing automatic updates and its failing to install this one update on shutdown?

    Try this tutorial to manually see what updates are available, then click view available updates will then tell you what update is having problems, try manually installng that update, failing that, google the details of the update this may then show any other users having problems with the same file and even give you tips for a workaround.

    Sorry Update shows as alert at closedown. Click to update as closing down, should configure on next start up. Next time closedown have the same process over and over and over again. Unusual to have so many updates so was wondering if there was a problem with the updates at the mo or if my comp was a bit iffy. Hence the question

    Not had any problems on my desktop PC running vista over the past few days (on laptop at moment tho running xp) seems like its an update thats having issues installing, manually try installing as I have said, making a note of what updates its trying to install to track down the offending update at least to start with.

    Great, if its not an important update for MS Office, and wont install you can set it so it wont inform you again to install it, however if manually installed, great!

    I wiped MSO in favour of open office when I installed firefox. Basically I guess it doesn't have anywhere to go. I unticked it on the updates in the security panel will that be enough? Sorry to be a pain never come across this before and can be a bit of a dunce.

    That will suffice if you uncheck and then get it to not ask again, although if you have removed Microsoft office properly strange that its asking for this now...I would also check in your control panel under add/remove programs to see if there is still any MS Office stuff remaining.

    Well, some people dont, but yes, being polite and repping people should be common courtesy and a sure way to actually warrant help from others, but some people do forget manners!
