What I'd do personally. If you have a broadband connection. Just enable the update program to update during the early hours of the morning. Say somewhere between 1AM and 6AM. This can be set so windows will automatically download, install, and configure the updates for your system. Remember, for it to be able to do this; the computer must be on.

This way it won't be a hinder to your every day internet usage, and it will do it's business while you're not using the computer. I have mine set up the same way and it's really nice. A simple reboot on some mornings is all I ever have to worry about and my PC is always up to date.

Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update


Have you seen the message
"Automatic Updates
Updating your computer is almost complete. You must restart your computer for the updates to take effect.
Do you want to restart your computer now?"
Automatic Windows updates are very good for computer security. However, when these Windows updates are downloaded and installed on your computer, if the updates require a reboot of your computer, Windows keeps prompting you to reboot your computer.

Now, Windows XP Pro users can disable automatic reboot of the computer after a Windows Update. In order to do that, follow these steps

Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update for Windows XP Pro usersWith this setting you will be able to specify that after a scheduled Windows update, Automatic updates will wait for the computer to be restarted by any user who is logged on, instead of causing the computer to restart automatically. If this setting is not enabled or not configured, your computer will prompt you every 5 minutes to restart the computer to complete the installation.


1. Press <Windows Key> + R which will launch the Run command. Type gpedit.msc and press Enter
2. Group Policy Editor will now be launched
3. On the left hand pane, under Local Computer Policy, click on the (+) sign next to Computer Configuration
4. Click on the (+) sign next to Administrative Templates. Then click on (+) next to Windows Components and then click on Windows Update
5. Double click on No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Updates installations. A settings window will now open. In there, select Enabled and then press OK

6. Close the Group Policy Editor
Disable Automatic Reboot after Windows Update for Windows XP Home usersThe settings are a bit different for Windows XP Home users because there is no group policy configuration for Windows XP Home.
1. Press <Windows Key> + R and type in regedit. Press Enter
2. Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SoftwarePolicies MicrosoftWindows WindowsUpdateAU
3. Change the "NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers" DWord value to 1 to Disallow auto reboot.
4. Press OK

I need microsoft windows xp service pack 2 how can i reinstall that..?


If you need to uninstall a bad Service Pack 2, go to Start, Click on the Control Panel option. In the Control Panel, click on Add/Remoce Programs. In the Add or Remove Programs screen, check the box at top for "Show Updates." Scroll down to Windows XP Service Pack 2 and click on remove. Then follow the onscreen instructions
Now the safest way to get a new Service Pack 2 would be to go to Start > Control Panel > Automatic Updates and then click on Install updates from the Windows Update Web Site (but before you select that, you might want to click on Automatic (recommended) so that Windows will update itself from now on). Anyway, after you click on Install updates from the Windows Update Web SIte, internet explorer will open and take you to the website and it will want to run an Activ-X control, click on the yellow bar that appears and click install. On the gray "Express" box this will cause it to look for updates that you NEED and it will install them. If you're using a laptop make sure you have it plugged into the wall, ifyou're battery dies during installation you can destroy your installation of Windows.

Laptop


Hi

U can install the windows in laptop also.. But with one condition that u do not connect the laptop to the internet.. If u want to connect means u have to turnoff the automatic updates in ur computer.. My best suggestion is u buy a laptop with preloaded OS.. Because Windows XP home edition will not support some options.. Better u buy a preloaded laptop..
