  • Sheryl,


    First I split your post creating a personal one for you. We do encourage all our customers to create their own posting so we may provide and focuse more attention directly to you. Some times focus is lost when there are multiple customers within the same thread as well as if customers do not come back and read the forum they won't receive feedback. Hope that explains as why I split your post.


    Next did you read what Matt provided regarding we don't provide support for Windows Updates in this forum? If not I would like to provide the information now which will provide some information but mainly a redirect as where you will find resolve for Windows Updates issues :-)
