Your welcome.

Thanks for sharing the info - it has just saved me from (contemplated) disposal of an old machine where this has been bugging me. It's frequently so difficult to find the relevant technical help on the microsoft site.

I agree.This problem had me beat for a while and as you say the Microsoft site isn't the easiest site to find the info you need.

If you are lazy like me the Windows update repair tool will do all the hard work for you.
