Good luck with your new Netbook hope you get it running the way you want it to.

Me" I don't know the difference between a Netbook and a laptop they look the same to me.

i am used to building a pc and installing everything from scratch. all these automated set ups where you have no idea whats going on are a pain.

the thing is stuck on update 40 of 58 [w7 starter version]been installing it for about half an hour now, no idea what number 40 is or if the netbook is not responding but says do not turn off or remove the plug.

how long do i give it?

sunnystaines When I bought my netbook it took about two hours to do all the updates which is why I advised getting it well before you went on holiday as the last thing you want is to be downloading that amount on what could be a slow and expensive connection. Set it to manual updates before you go and catch up when you come home.

It could be stuck at SP1 that took ages to download for me.So maybe best leaving it for a while to see if it carries on.

I actually thought my updates were stuck as well and was going to switch it off but left it for another half hour and it started to download the rest of the updates.

Has it downloaded the rest of the updates yet it takes ages especially with SP1.

Last time I did a complete re-install with all the updates it took hours and some times there appeared to be no activity. Loads of patience required and not a good idea to start it when you need sleep.

19 updates for Vista and Office 2007.

Just a little Update warning for those of you that use Firefox.

had to pull the plug, then on restart had to pull the plug again since then been going ok.

not used to a netbook surfing the web is ok [will be main use] but installing anything is painfully slow. go as far as sp1 so far everytime i do windows updates there is always more, hope to get it all up to date today, still got the driver/system updates.

There were 3 updates last night on my computer, then it re booted and then found a further 28.

Don't know what is going on at M/Soft but ther seem to be enjoying themselves just now with all these updates.
