On Friday I got up to date with the updates for XP Pro.I chose the critical ones and others I needed.Since then I have been unable to get my dial -up connection to hold for more than 4 minutes,usually much less.I restored my settings back to Thursday and it is now working ok again.Is this a known problem that anyone else has had?

Nope - all my critical updates up to date - but - I don't use dial-up.

I noticed during the short time I managed to stay on that everything was running at snails pace also.

They do sometimes, by overwriting your driver settings. I had to remove the nvidia update on Friday as it played havoc with my display, re-installed the driver from the CD and all is fine again. Some of the updates also require me to install my broadband modem drivers again. :o(

Thank you both for your replies.Restoring to before the updates cured my problem, so I will put them on individually and see if I can isolate the cause.I put them on altogether the last time.I will post the answer if I find it.
