Windows Update Erratic

Anyone else been having these problems lately?

I don't know if it is because M$ is having server problems, but it has crashed over half of the time today, and, after repeated tries, I *finally* got my updates. If XP weren't just as prone to corruption and slowness as the rest of the Windows versions, I wouldn't have had to reformat and reload Windows in the first place. :rolleyes:

Windows Update Problems Yes!

Yes I am having the same problem! Windows Update has been really bad the last few weeks for me.

Well, it is weird, considering that I downloaded them all the night before perfectly! I'm wondering if daytime traffic is the problem? Or if I have a corrupted ActiveX for Windows Update?

melon - sorry to hear you are having problems with Windows update - however I have to disagree with you on your comment about XP being prone to corruption and slowness. I have found that normally most of the problems are caused by the idiot pushing the buttons (me ):D

Some of us found we can make our life easier by using Windows catalog to download and save all the windows updates and have them available on a CD or a separate partition for reinstallation without having to use Windows Update (to download them again) after a reformat/reinstall!

Now I'll tell ya a secret - I have those downloads waiting on a cd -if I ever need them. I have gone since Feb 8, 2002 without a BSOD and of course no need to reformat/reinstall!

So XP is prone to corruption and slowness?? In my humble opinion, as long as I do not mess XP up - it works 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
