| I had my Microsoft Windows Update set to download but notify me when ready to install ,upon shutting down my PC I was notified with a litte sheild that updates where downloaded and ready to install . My PC frooze up during this process and I had to perform a forced shut down ! The Microsoft web site shows that these updates Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 KB953297|
and KB974455 Cumulative Security Update have failed installation 4-5 times . Now everytime I sut down my PC on the shut down button is the little sheild to install these updates , I've been using the option at the bottom of the shut down procss that allows you to shut down without installing any updates . Apprently these downloads are corrupt and will not install . My ? is how do I get them off my PC ? Microsofts Update site shows these updates as downloaded and ready for installation ,since they have not installed they are not in the ADD/Remove Programs Utility. The first time I booted up after the forced shut down my sound was not working(no speaker icon on taskbar) ,my TV Tuner card was not being detected, my desktop had changed resolution and my 7 port USB hub also lost its detection ? I used my Dell Utility CD to re-install the sound and other driveers ,upon reboot my mouse and several other hardware devices aurtomaticially re-installed themselves ,I reconfigured my desktop manually . I would have tried a system restore B/4 I performed all of this however I believe due to Norton's Security Suite my System Restore has never worked it always fails at any restore point I chose ? If somoeone could supply me with instructions on how to remove these updates from my system it would be greatly appreciated ,No Iam not making this stuff up and I barely have time to type this post, this happen early in the week and I've been meaning to post here at computing.net because I believe its the best place for PC help !
Thank You ,Nick
