WINDOWS XP Pro Updates

by Crazy George / August 8, 2006 11:10 PM PDT

I setup Auto update to download updates for me, but let me choose when to install them. I choose not to install GWA and since then I haven't recived anymore updates.

My copy of windows is good,and just don,t want GWA on my computer. I haven't recived any new security updates or anything else.

Dose anyone know why? Thanks in advance for any and all help. If I have to guess, I'll let them install there little spyware program otherwise known as GWA.

They're due out the first Tuesday in the month. I got mine today.

Why not goto Windows Updates yourself, (Start > All Programs > Microsoft Updates), and see what's available.
