Hello FreddyI left it running for about 40 minutes on one occassion
There are quite a few outstanding.
I have just checked and it now shows "Never" for checked for updates and "Never" for updates installed which is most strange.
Currently the "Checking for updates" is just whirling around but achieving nothing.
It is Vista.
I have left the download running - so far 10 minutes and still whirling.
After 25 minutes there is now a list of 81 updates outstanding.
Most are security updates for Office 2007 and Vista.
OK - Will start and have my fingers crossed !
Two hours and all downloaded.
Number 3 of 79 being installed
Must download regulary in the future !!!!!
