    Angry Windows XP Up-Dates

    When I have MS up dates I am able to download them with no problem. The problem is every time the installation fails. So in order to install the update it requires a reboot of the computer. I have the updates set to notify me but don't download and install. Also the only way I know I have updates is to check every Tuesday for updates. I never get notified.

    P.S I don't dare mess with this computer it's my wife's and it has games that I may not be able to replace. I am 71 and to young to die

    I ran the fix and don't have any updates for now so I will wait and see the next time MS has updates. Thanks for the advise.
