I went to the Windows Update Catalog, selected the update I wanted to download and downloaded it to my desktop. I now have a short cut for "iuhist_catalolg" (which is a text document) and a Folder called "Software". After working through four or five "opens" - I come to a "Read More" text file which tells me what the update is and a "Win32 self extractor for the Update". I Open it (the extractor), it flashes the hourglass and then nothing more happens. Is something more supposed to happen? If so what? How can I tell if in fact that update has been installed? I was really expecting to see something showing it extracting, installing or some additional kind of action! Please try to make me smarter in this area!! Thanx!
