My PC informs me, by the little yellow shield on the toolbar, that there are updates available now for Windows XP, Internet Explorer, Windows Office, Media Player etc. Is it necessary to download these - I have not before on this 1-yr-old machine - and someone told me, you may get hassles after downloading Windows uodates. Any advice much appreciated, thanks.
Run a manual scan for Microsoft updates.Anyones that come up that you do not want to download press the + in the box and underneath Just tick don't show again.or something like that.And you will get no further updates for it.There was an urgent update from Microsoft last night which has to be installed.
When I hover on yellow shield, it says 'updates are ready click to download'. Panel has about 30 items in it! then click to start downloading. I do not have service pack 3, this not in this list, but is this also essential? I am a bit lost on Microsoft updating, i'm afraid.
