You may have a dearth of problems ranging from "Hosts file" manipulation, up to 10 .dll's not being registered properly for Windows to update and...SHUDDER malware and/or viral hits. All of these are numerous and you best backup all your critical documents, computer-based email, favorites in IE, etc., as you may need a reformat of the hard drive. In fact, a reformat for us techno folks is a must on a semi annual or at any time we deem necessary. There's nothing like a good "house cleaning"!

HTH (Hope this helps) :whistling:

Dial a fix handles many update and install problems. It is worth a try.
