    Hey sports fans it gets better you can not enable auto updates after this authentic check , dirty buggers. Believe me I tryed, turn on auto updates before you d/l the newest updates and you should still be able to get the critical updates . But I may be wrong know I can't away . A format would help me but would like to save others the trouble .



    Enable update :

    Andrewbarker found a fix .

    In Internet Explorer
    Tools > Manage Add-ons
    Disable "Windows Genuine Advantage" thingy

    Close Internet Explorer, then go back to the update site

    OH no it works I was going to ask Ross to delete this thread cause I feel 'stoopid ' but glad Andy 's post saved me . I'd rather leave a post warts and all if it helps someone ,and I know those who know me would smile anyway . You can't try hard or share too much !
