    Can't connect Updates etc. (Home Premium)

    (Edited by HansV to make URL clickable - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>)

    I can't search for updates for either the computer or WLOC, can't connect to Microsoft help and support, but it's not an internet connection problem. Yesterday I installed:
    nVidia - Networking - NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller

    Installation date: 1/30/2008 8:19 AM

    Installation status: Successful

    Update type: Important

    nVidia Networking software update released in May, 2007

    More information:

    Could this be the problem? Should I use system restore?

    Where are you located? There is a severe Internet problem in the mid-east because of an undersea cable being cut. Also, did you get the update from Nvidia? Can you uninstall the update?

    Can you run a system restore to a time before the installation?

    Ran a system restore, everything is fine now. This was an update that was installed automatically, but as I have WLOC I can't turn off automatic updates without everything going red, leaves me in a bit of a quandary. Anyway, thanks for you help.

    "automatic updates " should NOT install HARDWARE updates with out you approval.
    The hardware updates are listed under the "Optional" listing, I never approve the install of any hardware drivers.

    I am using OneCare on my laptop and have no problems in controlling these hardware updates.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Just for the curious, what is WLOC?

    I tried a google search, but the first few entries were for the Worthing Light Opera Company, which hardly seems probable unless Gilbert and Sullivan wrote some very strange productions!

    This update was classified as "important", with WLOC I can only control "recommended" or "optional" updates. Now if you know something I don't please let me know.

    I do NOT ever remember seeing ANY hardware updates that will be install automatically!

    Do you know what KB it is?

    Nope sorry, only information I can find was in my original post. Seems strange though it says, " nVidia Networking software update released in May, 2007"

    Now, if it was released last May and is classified as "important' why did I not receive it until last week?
