I've fixed this once or twice (lost count is the truth) by searching for H: in the registry and changing it to where the updates are. But there is no exact step by step on this. Let's call this fairly advanced work.
2 yrs ago I had a home network set up which inluded 2 desktops, 1 laptop and a printer. I have recently moved and upgraded the family pc to Windows 7 but I am having a serious issue with my laptop; Whenever I try to update programs like HP MediaSmart DVD or Adobe I receive an error stating that "the path \\bigaustin\h can not be located" "do you want to retry or cancel"...this path was used when I had the home network setup because it's where I had all the computers pointed so they could share the printer and files.
I have went through every setting on my laptop and I can not find why the laptop still thinks the path is active or thinks it needs to use that path to apply updates to programs...i am not sharing any files, if I go to map a drive the H: it is an option....and at this point I almost want to reload the OS.
Can someone please read over this post and give me some options to why the laptop keeps using that path and or how to change it....THANKS!!!!
