117+ Updates :-).....Best Way
When I fired up my El Cheapo DC7600 it had W/xp Pro SP3 and it went right to work updating itself - only had 117 at that point. Well it took a couple tries but I managed slit it's throat and get that stopped. Somehow I just don't think that'd work to well but it's just a gut feeling. I usually do maybe 3 at a time - takes longer, of course. Do all the dot.nets separately and in order if possible.
Incidentally the updating started when I attempted the first shut down and a mssg said, "don't shut down - when the updates are finished the comp will automatically shut down."
Originally I was just going to take it off and install Linux but am going to stick with it a while so better update. Right? Right. So.
Any suggestions on a good way to handle this? Or should I just schedule a month's time? Or trust the machine?
