I think it will eventually...on my netbook it took almost 5 minutes to open.

By the way I disabled my A/V just in case.

Since it won't install on my current install (which I wanted to do to test the file), I'm wondering now if I should risk the clean install and then try to install it in order to see if it will install on a fresh install.

Additionally, this update improves reliability when you install or remove Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 updates and service packs.
don't know why it's an optional update - seems quite important
Mine says important.
ah sorry, i used the wrong term.

it's in the important section, but mine wasn't ticked by default.

Are you sure. It takes forever for the file to open.

Come to think of it, mine wasn't either, I had to do those updates in two steps.

Thanks, I like my new sig too.

Mine opens as soon as I click on it, don't know what the issue is with it taking forever to open for you. Might be because mine's corrupt in some way.

Looks like I might have to. This is what I got. The exe. file is an nfo file so it won't open.
I could find a nfo file opener but would it install?
