Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 26 updates???? WTF?

    Standby if you are on a slow link!

  2. When? Linky?
     
  3. Mine is switched to automatic/ask me. I fired up this evening and Vista offered me the lot. I said yes... and the bloody thing is struggling. Only 38% after an hour! And the laptop power supply is red hot!

  4. So what's the update involve?
    Is it a service pack?
     
  5. 26 updates? Windows is offering me only one - "Intel Corporation - Display - Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family" Download size: 19.9 MB Update type: Optional

    Although there have been quite a few updates in the last month. Is your update schedule set to monthly?
     
  6. I also just got the one update this morning.
     
  7. It isn't set to monthly, AFAIK. I haven't used the laptop for the last few days so it might just be catching up!!!

    I have the Intel Chipset update on hold because I don't know whether it is relevant to my Samsung laptop.

    The 26 updates included Visual C++, Vista security updates (lots), Office updates (lots), Framework, Server and others.

  8. I stand corrected. I've just done a manual update check and there are indeed 24 important and 2 optional updates.

    Jeez!
     
  9. And there was me thinking I was speshul...

    Lits
     
  10. 23 updates, 73.4MB. 4 minutes to download, 8 minutes to install 22 of them, 1 failed. Not too bad. I'll get the failed one after I've restarted.

    Hopefully...

    Wonder what happened to the other three.

  12. Windows 7........
     
  13. Oh do **** off. Apple is for ponces. Do you have a ponytail and spectacles with red frames?

    I bought a cheap Toshiba netbook from argos recently. Win7 basic required 54 updates when I first tried to log off. Took all night!

    So what. It works brilliantly, especially in a wi-fi environment.
     
  14. I am a mactard, but atleast I press the on button and it works, click on software update and it works, apart from that I am as much use as a French man at agincort!
     

  15. Ahhh. If only the diehard Windows users would learn..... they have been fed bollocks by a marketing company for years.
