After wondering why my laptop was running slowly I read on this forum that everyone was having trouble with update Q811493. I have uninstalled this and pc back to normal. i used to have no bother with these updates but now seem to download some of them and then they won't install, is anyone else having this problem? the two that won't install at the moment are 330994 and 813489 both updates for outlook express.

managed to get them to install at the 4th attempt, but this is a normal occurence with these updates now.

I've noticed a slowdown lately and I also have the 811493 update.

How do you remove it please?

Found it in Control Panel.

My machine is certainly faster without that update.

sorry coaster just logged on glad you found how to do it, my pc's certainly running better without it. I found out about it under the thread "Latest windows update can cause computer slowdown" thanks to Topcat for his information.I think this should be posted in big letters on the forum for everyone to read

Just finally installed the two updates mentioned here, re-started, and now appear to have lost most of the icons in the taskbar. Running win XP. Has this happened to anyone else, if so I can it be rectified.
