26 updates???? WTF?
Standby if you are on a slow link!
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!
So what's the update involve?
Is it a service pack?
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?
I also just got the one update this morning.
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.
I stand corrected. I've just done a manual update check and there are indeed 24 important and 2 optional updates.
And there was me thinking I was speshul...
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.
Wonder what happened to the other three.
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.
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!
Ahhh. If only the diehard Windows users would learn..... they have been fed bollocks by a marketing company for years.
