Thanks all, I thought it was just my computer acting up. I did get a scan, after several lockups, and there were 3 Critical Updates. It downloaded, after several attempts, and then locked up on the installation. There appears to be several errors on the Update Log. I'll try again later.
I think that my, Cleaners, Ad and Spy Removers, may be my problem. I had been running these programs before trying Win Update. As I posted, the Update Site didn't work right for me. I then downloaded the files from the catalogue site. These downloaded fine, but when I tried to install them I got the message that cryptographic wasn't running, and Win update File could not be found.
I went back to a Ghost CD I had made a few days ago. After that the downloaded files installed fine, and another visit to the Update Site, found, and installed other updates fine!
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
