Re: c drive filled
It might not help but sounds to me like it updated a lot of updates. You might have to let it keep starting and rebooting till it has installed all the updates.How do you know it filled your hard drive?

Insert the disc into the DVD drive in your computer.
The installation should begin automatically or give a pop-up asking you what you would like to do. Select Run Setup.exe.
Note: If the installation does not begin automatically follow these steps:
Click on Start.
Click on My Computer (Computer on Windows Vista and Windows 7)
Right Click on the DVD drive containing The Print Shop 3.5 disc.
Left Click on Open.
Double Left Click on Setup.exe.
The installer will now search your computer to make sure you have the required Windows Updates in order to install The Print Shop 3.5.
If it detects that you are missing an update the installer will prompt you to install these now. Once the updates are complete the installer will move to the next step automatically.
From here you should follow the on screen prompts to complete the installation.
Usually, after you re-install ... and set UPDATE mode (for Windows & IE) to automatic ... the system will look for and download updates (to Windows, browsers, etc.) automatically. So, shut down and restart ... and let it do it's (automatic) download & install . It may take quite a while, to bring you up to the latest Windows XP version.
that message is from the automatic updates windows makes from time to time ...and this message usually appears after a fresh install with the operation system out of date ..and if you have the automatic updates ticked for to be made automatically ..The thing to be done is either let it install the updates...and it will shut down by itself...or ..start windows..and go to control panel ..and on the automatic updates...stop the updating process..This will cause a message to appear in the tray system every time ..to warn you that your computer is out of date ..and so ...but it has no real distress cause it will run like a charm even without the updates...(probably even faster ..cause if your computer is a little limited in resources the updates will slow it down a little .. So ..this message is not a pest ..but the windows updating your operation system ..the only issue is when it is in error and takes more than the time it should ...usually it should not take more than a couple of hours for all 55 updates to be installed ...and this in case you have a slow computer...
One thing you can do that make some changes in automatic updates.
Just follow is these steps:-
2.Type services.msc then hit enter.
3.Find out the Automatic updates or windows updates(in case of Windows Vista or Windows 7).
4.Change it to manual or you can stop that(Depends on your wish).
What programs are installed on the machine? there may be a file that's conflicting with one of the updates. You may leave automatic updates turned off. Looking for the culprit will require and will be easier if a tech will check the computer onsite or thru remote access.
You might have connected to interent and your windows updates are
automatically downloaded. You need to install those updates. Actually
it did not shut but power goes off may be it was on stand by mode. Now
shut down (press Alt+F4) your laptop from menu. Choose Install Updates
and Shut Down from the drop down list.
Now it will install updates and after completion it will automatically shut down your laptop. Hope it works
