Confused about Updates and relevance to single user/non professiio

Discussion in 'Microsoft Certification' started by =?Utf-8?B?Sm9keQ==?=, May 8, 2007.

  1. I use XP Home SP2, only user and for recreational purposes only. I don't
    even have Word, Excel, etc installed. I am getting updates for Office, Net
    framework, XML which has made me more confused about learning this stupid
    thing called a computer, than I ever was. Why am I getting these updates?
    I had gone to just download updates and I would choose, but I started using
    Windows Live Care which obviously changed the setting. And when that
    happened every update I could ever not want is now installed.
    My computer seems to be running slower, dialog boxes are taking forever to
    open and I hate having stuff on my computer that I don't even want to
    understand.
    Trying to research what each update is has driven me crazy and I gave up
    going to page after page after page to find out.
    All of this is probably irrealavant - just change the Update settings again,
    but I believe some of the updates are messing with things more than my head?!!
    I will be grateful for any help and advice. I am sorta getting closer to
    pitching this laptop thru the window.........
    Thank you very much. (hope this made sense and I am posting in right
    place,if not sorry)

  2. I do believe you have found yourself in the wrong place to vent about your
    computer's woes. Maybe try microsoft.public.windowsxp.general or take your
    computer to your local computer shop to get it a performance tuneup.
