Donna, I saw your post on KB885523 windows update so I downloaded and installed it. What I don't understand is why Windows Automatic Update didn't do it. Also I ran a manual windows update and it didn't show an update as being available. How come??? Thanks Auggie

Auggie,

I posted it here in Cnet also. See http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6132-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=39808&messageID=467147

The download update page was revised by Microsoft after I posted it.

Earlier the only Operating System supported is Windows XP Embedded. Afterwards, the supported Operating System has been changed to support Windows XP, Windows XP Home Edition , Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows XP Professional Edition , Windows XP Service Pack 1, Windows XP Service Pack 2

You only need the update if you are seeing "Stop: c0000135" and "winsrv was not found" error message after you install Windows XP Service Pack 2

If you don't see that error message, you don't need to install KB885523

I already downloaded and installed it. However, I just ran View Installation History in Windows update and it's not showing, nor is it showing in Add/Remove.

Try looking for C:\WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB885523$
Look for uninstaller if you want to remove it.

Or check if the System Restore if this KB885523 created a restore point while you are installing it.

Note: Create a restore point prior doing the above.

I'll just leave it but I have a question. I did a restore as you suggested and found the windows update and picked a restore point which was earlier in the day. After restart, I received a message that my computer couldnt be restored to that point. WHY??

Auggie,

Q. What should I do if System Restore does not work?
A. Try these steps if System Restore does not appear to work:

1. Ensure the System Restore service is running. For more information, see: How can I verify that the System Restore services are running on my machine?

2. Verify that you have enough free space on all your drives as required by System Restore. If the free space on any partition system restore is monitoring falls below 50 MB, System Restore will suspend and purge out all restore points to free up disk space. It will automatically reactivate when 200 MB+ free space is available. For more information, see How the System Restore Tool Handles Hard-Disk Space Usage.

3. Examine event logs for any system restore-related errors that could help you identify the problem.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
