  1. Ok. I'm a bit of an IT biff, so this may or may not make sense.

    How do I stop auto-upgrade downloading/installing on Vista?

    2 days ago, it did its usual stuff in the background, and downloaded some upgrades, then installed them as part of the shuttingdown process at the end of the day.

    Next morning, it refused to start up normally, blue screens of death, and frozen PC situations ensued, until one option popped up to try Restore point. This I chose, and it worked, all day. Until I went to shut it down, when the screen told me that Updates were being installed.

    Same problem occured the next morning, until the Restore point option had happened.

    Now, as I see it, whatever upgrade Windows installs doesn't like something on this machine.

    (long explaination for simple question)
  2. Thanks for that...as I said...I'm a total BIFF.....that was easy!
