When I try to install update service pack 3, the access is denied.
It says the service pack 3 installation did not complete. How can I stop the update appearing? Obviously my computer can't load it, so how can I stop it appearing......cheers Heather

Re: Update service pack 3 access is denied.
When you launch Windows Updates, don't choose the Express Updates but choose Custom. Then when you are presented with Service Pack 3, there is the option to not select it and then choose to continue to see what other updates there are. Personally, I do not recommend Automatic Updates or Express, always do it manually and always select Custom so an unwanted update doesn't get in under the radar and cause further problems. The rule of "if it isn't broken, don't fix it." really goes well with PC's.

Not quite. It is "ESS-****-TWO".
Do a "custom" scan. When it completes, Windows Update will offer "Service Pack 2 (two)" or "Service Pack 3 (three)" as an update. Allow it to download and install that update.
Restart, and reaccess the web-site, and there will more updates.
Then, try again to print.
Are you logged in as an administrator on your PC? Access Denied is almost always an indicator that the current logged in user does not have sufficient permissions to install applications. Let us know if this is not the case. Hope this helps!
OK, do you wish to install further updates? if you dont, then what you can do is disable automatic updates
To do this, then right click on the desktop the icon My pc and select properties. The sub menu Automatic Updates you will find on the top, click that and check the box disable automatic updates
Some Automatic updates are dangerous and can cause your computer to stop working correctly. I would recommend you disable them. Once this is disabled, restart your computer and the access denied messages will disappear. This is because its most likely you have automatic updates set to download and install automatically. But once you disable this, problem should be solved.
