Thread: Windows Update

  1. #1
    i used to be able to dl windows updates by clicking on an icon in the try on the taskbar. however, i haven't seen that icon for months. I'm pretty sure theres been updates in that time. does anyone have any ideas why the icon hasn't been showing up?

    BTW, I'm getting an update from the windows site right now and its taking forever. Updates never took this long before.

    In IE just go to Tools/windows update and it will take you to the update site

    i know, but that wasnt my question. my question was about the tray icon and why my update is installing so slowly. btw, it is still installing...this is ridiculous.

    hmm, everything seems to be set up correctly.
    is there any harm in exiting out of this update installation? its taking too long and it says "running processes after installation"

    Well, if you haven't updated in a long while, there's going to be more to update (and install)

    so it will take longer.

    and/or the update site may be busy.

    service pack 1 takes FOREVER sometimes. It has been known to hang, If this happens, sometimes you have to open task manager (press Ctrl + Alt + Delete) and select the task for the update. It should be windows update, I forget the name of the task, bt it is probably taking a ton of your sysem reources. It shouldn't be too difficult to fin by yourself. You can thentry to right click on teh task and change the process priority to above normal or something higher and click yes to the pop-up.
