Re: Failed Update

Thanks both of you...

Failed Update

I cant install KB931768 & there is no error message
it just says failed to install.
Anyone else had this problem & does it matter anyway if i dont use IE?
The yellow shield appears all the time in the tray because its
not installed.Should i turn off AU?


XP Home SP2

Thankyou

Re: Avant freezing up on ISP home page and !

Dont think it would do any harm to
Defragment
Run CCleaner
Remove all but the most recent system restore point
Run Windows Live OneCare
Remove unnecessary Start up Progs.
