ok yesterday finished automatic updates
switched on today and
'windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: system32\drivers\Ntfs.sys and attempt to repair with setup cd press 'r'
of course havn't got set up cd to hand - but before I go through that option could it be a virus or the hard drive or whatevver causing this fault ???

coundn't get to 'Safe mode' - last good configuration also a no go'er - finally found the link 'Log on to your computer with an account that has administrator credentials '
which got me into 'safe mode' and system restore
so back to a working version - and auto updates turned OFF ;)

G'day bruce - this is girl friends PC north of the border Graham
