I occasionally have a window pop up saying (in effect) 'here are [usually two] Windows XP updates, click here to get them'. I click there, the window disappears, and no download occurs. Why is this? On the same subject, if this method of (supposedly) regular updating offers me but two updates, why, on the main website, am I offered twenty-six (at the last count}, and how do I choose amongst them?
Critical updates are things like security issues where recommended updates may be a solution to something in 14 different languages, therefore you probably wont need them unless you've got a Latvian exchange student staying with you. I think. HTH TR
I now understand the difference between the offered downloads and the just-sitting-there ones, but still don't see why the offered ones disappear when I click on the window. But I've spotted an earlier item on the same subject which suggests i should disable my firewall to get these downloads: I'll try that. Thansk to my responders.
I've successfully downloaded and installed BigFix; it's offered me three Fixlets, which I have somewhat high-handedly declined - so my firewall is clearly not blocking it; so all seems to be well.Thank you all for your help
