  •  

    Our laptop has Vista Home Premium

    When it down loads windows updates, it often restarts to complete the installation without any warning and we have twice lost work due to this.

     

    So I have set it to warn me of updates availabilty for manual download to avoid this problem

     

    But now I have a red onecare icon!

     

    I do not get the problem on my mauin computer (XP) as I usually catch the updates on patch Tuesday, but in any case I get about 20 seconds notice of a restart.

     

    Any suggestions?

    The only thing I can suggest is setting the Windows updates to a time when you will not be on the laptop. Open Contral Panel> Windows Updates> Change setting and then set the day and time so you know when it will hit.
