Per automatic update I got the IE8 downloaded on both my home computers (both
have XP SP3). After installing it on my secondary computer and having issues
I could not get straightened out I decided not to install it on my main unit.
Tonight I got the "downloading updates" icon and noticed it was taking a long
time to download so I checked to see what was being downloaded, and it was
IE8. IE8 as I mentioned was already downloaded but not installed; is there a
time limit on a downloaded but not installed update? I have not deleted
anything but browser history stuff since the download, and until yesterday
the icon telling me I had updates ready for install would appear each time I
logged on; will not Windows allow me to make any decisions for myself? It looks
as though unless I want to sit through the several hours (again) it takes to
download IE8 on dialup, I will have to disable auto update which I am not fond
of doing either.
Anybody know whats up with this?
