On start up, just before making the internet connection, a pop up window shows bottom rh of my pc saying "The connection with update server has failed". What should I do -if anything? I am using Windows XP home edition.
Thank you Mat Alan for your very prompt reply. This problem is a recent one and does not follow any new programme being loaded. It does however follow the installation of new hardware (an IR dongle) which had no microsoft signature and when disconnected caused the pc to crash into a blue screen proclaiming a "serious problem".
