That all looks normal.
I'll have to think about it, and see if I can work out what may be wrong - or work out an alternative method.

Hi, I'm just communicating to make sure I haven't closed this thread by mistake, as one morning I logged on and this page looked completely different. I don't won't to appear "pushy", but to let you know I am still looking forward to an answer. Thanks in advance if you are still trying to come up with an answer for me.

Sorry - work and real life keep getting in the way!

I'll try and spend some time on it this evening if I can keep my eyes open long enough.

Thank you so much for all of your input - I did a lot of research and realised even more so the work that you have done for me - and I can't believe how you have helped me so much and taught me so much.
I explained all of this to a friend, and guess what - he has the ISO I need (legal of course) - same everything as my machine. I will go ahead and use this now, as I think my computer has a few problems and although a lot of work, a good clean out will be good.
So once again, thank you so much and I hope I this helps you in getting a bit more sleep!
I may need to annoy you again when I do updates - I'll make sure to only to a few at a time so hopefully it all will work. I have the tutorial from SevenForums to help me through - all the best to you and SevenForums

Here's my preferred methodology for installing the 200+ windows Updates in Vista and Win7...

Note - between each of the below batches of updates, reboot at least once, even if the machine auto-rebooted during the updates. After teh update, do a new Check for Updates. Add any remaining updates or failed updates to the next batch.




1) Install all 'Security Update for Windows'
Reboot
Check for Updates
(some will have failed, and some new ones will have appeared)
2) Install the remaining/new 'Security Update for Windows'
Reboot
Check for Updates
3) Install all ordinary 'Update for Windows'
Reboot
Check for Updates
4) install updates for IE8 - but NOT IE 9/10/11
Reboot
Check for Updates
5) install all other updates EXCEPT .NET ones and IE9/10/11
Reboot
Check for Updates
repeat 5 until there's nothing left in the main window except the .NET and IE upgrades

6) Install all Security Updates for .NET - but nothing else
Reboot
Check for Updates
7) Install all other .NET updates
Reboot
Check for Updates
8) Install IE10 if offered - IE11 should wait if it's still an Optional update.
9) Install the IE10 updates, then install IE11 and update that.

Good luck!
