Can you clever boys and giggles out there help me with the following.I have a TIME laptop running XP home.When I try to install critical updates my computer crashes and I get 100's of cross-linked files which means I have to reload OS and everything else I have backed up.
After re-loading,I've installed SP1 from the Microsoft cd with no problems.If I run "sfc/scannow" all is ok and the machine is stable.However,when I install other updates, saved on disc,and one at a time,although the installation goes ok if I run SFC again my computer crashes and I'm back to square one.
I'm installing on a clean machine.No virus checker or anything else.I'm running SFC due to a previous disaster.So :
1.Is my problem due to the way Time partition their XP software.
2.Does anyone else have a similar problem,either with time or any other make.
3.I assume running SFC should be successful after updates installed or do I need the reload cd in, or would that simply reload factory settings. I don't have XP discs,just reload cd's.
