Hi Guys,

Is there any services that I need turned on for my XPHome to take updates? The updates download from Windows site, but it does not install successfully. I do have quite a few services turned off on this machine. I am thinking it might be a service.

Thanks in advance.

windows update fails to install if you have one of the services turned off, i think it may be a windows installation one and/or one of the encryption ones. cant check as im not at home.

Cryptographic Services and Automatic Updates must be running in order for the updates to install.

Thanks, Muzikool

I do know that Automatic Updates actually doesn't need to be turned on (I like to manually take care of that), but I did not know about the Cryptographic Service.......

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
