auto-updates for Windows Vista?
If this is the case; then you don't need a program (like Windows Live Care) to update your computer, all you have to do is go into the control Panel and select 'Windows Update'.
Note: that your computer should at least have the option to notify you of updates (Control Panel-Security-Windows Update-Turn Automatic Updating On or Off) before installing them.

Thank you, I will try that for my computer. I am having problems with my wife's laptop in that it won't copy the backups to my shared portable drive that use to have windows live onecare. She has vista home premium.
