What exactly do you mean by "a new version of windows update"?

Are you referring to an Active X file from Microsoft?

If so, if you don't install it you won't be able to download system/critical updates from MS

hi Jackcoms and buteman
the updates i have are called windows update, the new one is called microsoft updates, but on one of my pcs when i check for windows updates it asks if i want to install microsoft updates, which i presume is if you want automatic updates for xp and office although it says new i have seen this before giving you the choice between the two types of updates but now it dose not sorry about the delay, painting the daughters house got to ask permission to leave chippy

Hi Chippy.I have had the same thing 2or3 times,And I only have my Desktop, but download up-dates manually.I think everyone has to go through Microsoft now for up-dates.It should be Ok to download it,Never download it if you get sent it in a e-mail.
