Ok carwiz will go have a look - I did notice a while ago while doing a reboot after a BIOS update that it was "stuck" on an update that it couldn't download - have set that to ignore so that i suppose could have been the root cause.
In any case I'll still check for what you said.
Oh dear went onto their site and thought I might as well have the full version to be able to download all at once option. Ended up talking to a machine called "Baron". Very disappointed with that! So the one at a time will suffice for what I need anyway.
The other point is that it uses "the cloud" which I am not that sure of - don't know what others think.
