Hi guys

I am just wondering, when I on my way to shut down the machine, there is a windows updates components that I need to be installed before I am starting to shut down the machine.

I really want to see what the machine has downloaded for me yesterday, but somehow I can't get the Windows Updates icon (the yellow shield with an exclaimination mark out located next to the clock) to come out.

Please advise where can i found out what the machine has downloaded yesterday??

I am currently still using the Windows XP SP2

If the shield is still coming up, it hasnt installed anything yet.

Go to the windowsupdate site and do a scan.

See what comes up. Just dont install any drivers from this site

Does it appear if u click on the < on the taskbar?

Right mouse on the taskbar / properties / customise.

Find the shield and change it to always show, then OK OK

I had the same problem as Jacky, so I went to the Windowsupdatesite and downloaded from there. Solved my problem.

yea, right..

i think the latest windows update installer do have a problem...

In the past 1 year or so, I never have this problem... it just i have formatted my machine recently, and it starting to do this kind of strange thing...

Lucky, I tell that windows update to notifiy me if there is new update for me to download and i choose it myself to download.. otherwise, my system will be destroyed thanks to them haha
