I will take a look at the link, because I wasted much time, yesterday, and today with those stupid updates.
I, usually, do my own checking, because I had not been able to install updates, normally, since Aug 2010. Microsoft support had been baffled, and, never offered me solutions. I found out updates, at times, installed the downloaded files, on Shut Down. Other times, I had to download the KBs, and install them, one by one.
So, yesterday, I proceeded in trying the kb download/install, after the usual failure. According to Microsoft, at least three of the seven updates were not needed with my OS, i.e. XP-SP3, so I could not download them. I was able to download one, and update to Office, but I don't have Office. So, I waited. Secunia did not tell me that I needed any. But, this morning, when I went to shutdown my machine, the downloaded file were ready to install, and it took quite a while to do it. A while ago, I turned back on my machine, and Secunia told me that I needed the updates, after doing the weekly scan, just before I shutdown my machine, this morning. With system stuff Secunia requires a complete scan (with other programs it is sufficient to do a program scan). So, after over 30 min. Secunia told me that I was ok, except for Adobe Shockwave NPAPI, which should be automatically updated, but wasn't. After much kicking and screaming, I was able to download the Shockwave update, and tried to run it, but nothing happened. some fifteen minutes later, the installer had vanished, but Secunia told me that Shockwave was up to date. So far my machine may be a mess, but I don't know. So much for updates, automatic, silent or otherwise!
Finally, the link given by Richard led me to the March updates. I subscribe to the Windows Secrets, and this link is more like it
, and this may apply to what I said before
