The other option is to download autopatcher, December and then February, 250MB total, it has its own installer so should not run into a problem, but, if it does you have 250MB file, if you have a fast connection, I would go for it because it will be easier than repair / recovery / reinstalling updates and any other programmes not on the recovery partition

This is what it has

Save the December one in case the download cuts out, then install it, you will probably need to reboot before the February one, check what the options are, choose custom etc so you can see exactly what it will install

I installed the december one. It took about 20 seconds and gave me a "successful" install. It didn't ask me to reboot, but I did. Then I installed the Feb and got the same "Successful" Install.

How do I know if the install was a success, and what should I do next?

Thank you

Martin

Can you click add / remove, have a tick in show updates, see if any of the hot fixes from the top of the list in post 31 show

If you can stand it, go to Microsoft Update to see what happens

I see the updates. should they have todays date?

If so then there are no updates with todays date, they are all from 3/12/2005 up to a windows media security update from 2 days ago.

I didn't see any that matched the numbers in your post.

Is it possible that it didn't install, and just unpacked itself somewhere?

I went to the update site and I am still getting the same message.

Thank you

The December one should have taken minutes

Run through this

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then also from system tools, run disc defragmenter

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm then reboot.

Download, install and run
Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor



Then find the December update, click set up then click the + next to the items to install and check what it is going to install, so you can check what it does install

I found out that the dec install created a shortcut on the desk top. So Idouble-clicked that and it went through a 5 minute install. I was able to select what it installed, but I left itwith the defaults, ie recommended, critical, etc.

When I went back to the add/remove, the files still had dates from 2005. Since I didn't install all the componants, I guess all of the file names in your previous post wold not be there, but some of them are. I also have some that are not on the list.

When I ran the Feb update it didn't place any icons on the desk top for me to click to install.

Shall I still go with your recommendation in your last post?

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then also from system tools, run disc defragmenter

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm then reboot.

Download, install and run Tune Up 2006 Trial

Yes, run Tune Up

The dates would be DEC as that was when it was released, and perhaps progress if you can see updates which were not there before
