Having just installed a new hard drive and XP Pro, I was notified of no less than 81 updates from microsoft, mainly XP security fixes. While installing these I tried to open another programme, clicking on Start menu. But after a few seconds the screen disappears.
probably not explaining this very well; OK, I click the mouse on Start but almost before I can go to the next stage the start menu disappears.
And as I write this the updates have finished installing and the problem has stopped. Is this normal?
This is my first time using XP Pro, I always had XP Home. Are there any differences I should watch for that might make my pc behave any differently??
To download and install the updates, following the re-start instructions as you go...Windows say's you can keep working, but it's not really a great idea. I have 4gb of 800mhz ram in this machine, and it still runs like glue if you try to do anything when the process is running.
