No updates listed in Add/Remove ?

carolssisJuly 2, 2011

After re-install of my O.S. I did the update from Microsoft. When I checked the Add/remove list, they were not listed, as they always were before. I looked in "C" drive and found them all listed in the Windows folder. Is this a new thing or has something gone wrong?

If you look at the very top of Add/Remove programs in Control Panel you will see "Show updates". Is that checked? I believe that is what will allow the MS updates to be listed.

Apart from what Grandms writes once you had SP3 installed there are over 100 more updates to install. Have you gone to the MS site for those?

The microsoft update site had 78 update, 7 software updates, and 6 hardware updates. Oddly, the final count was 101 updates. So they are all there. I'll check my programs list, see if I had not checked to show updates. Thanks!
