I have run the optimizer and the system responded beautifully.

What do I do next, and do I follow the advice of the person who posted previously.

Thank you

Martin

If you mean "things that it fixed" that didn't need to be on the computer, 1044.

But I still can't update

But she runs beautifully.

Thank you

Click start then run, type services.msc then press enter, check you have automatic updates, background intelligent transfer and alerter set to automatic, (double click each one, click start, if they are not started, then set the start up type to automatic, click apply, try updates

Beyond this, it looks as if it will depend on the repair options to replace missing system files

A check you can do is click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r (with the spaces), press enter, type Y to confirm then reboot, it will appear to load normally then either show progress on the monitor or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this, just let it load to the desktop when it gets there, though this will take an hour or so, what it does is check the integrity of the drive and repair whatever it can, usually everything, it could be something wrong there which is stopping installations

Hi I have run everything. Even part of the update that alphabetizes the program listing on the start menu. When I rebooted, everything was alphabetized. So it is doing something. I still get the same run-around on the microsoft website though. Still won't install.

The dec update installs a run icon on the desktop, but the feb install does not, so I am not installing the feb one. How do I do that?

Thank you

Check the desktop icon was not replaced by the Feb one, download it again but choose run, then it should download and install

I downloaded the feb one again and installed. Still didn't give me the run icon. So I went to programfiles and ran it manually and I go a weird screen like it loaded, but thewas a blank kind of screen with two buttons with nothing written on them. It's like the download didn't have all the files.

Thank you

Not without repairing, but if it is doing what you need it to do, leave things as they are

I think so.

I want to thank you so very very much for all your help. You have been amazing. Is Tune up Utilities a good program to have?

Thank you

I would say so, though run it for a month and see what you think of it

It is the only programme I have bought from running a trial (2004), they gave me 2006 for doing the beta testing

Not a problem helping you, it does take two to see things through
