Hi all wondering if you could please help,my father has a laptop that he has used once on wi-fi, and he started to recieve updates from microsoft xp, He then left wi-fi but the updates had not finished. Is there anyway that he could finish off receiving these updates through my desk comp which is connected to broadband?
I was thinking that this may be poss through a usb lead as I do not have wi-fi at home.
He also seems convinced that he may pick up a virus or something if he goes back to wi-fi
Cheers
