MS Update Problem
« on: September 14, 2005, 02:40:34 PM »
I accidentally clicked cancel while microsoft update was installing an update. Is there any way to get it back? I also tried to redownload it manually from the update site.
but all attempts didn't work

also does renaming things used by the operating system a bad thing?note: I didn't, just wondering.
and does renaming things on the desktop ruin the shortcut?
and deleting false positives in antispyware is a bad thing right?

thanks a bunch,

I think you will find that the update would have downloaded and installed depending on what method you used

Have a look in  Control Panel /Add remove it may give you some clue.

Failing that just re-download and install  the update

That depends on what your renaming.
If the system is looking for something called HOT but you've renamed it COLD the operating system wouldn't
be able to find it and you would be left out in the cold. ;D

Generally with 'Updates' you can see the "History" on the left of the Windows Update Page. Once your at the page you initiate the scan of your computer, and a list of Updates is generated to choose from.
I'd suggest going to Windows Update page again>opt to have the scan of your system> and check what has been sucessfully installed from the MS installation history list .
