You should not remove any updates. If you need to create some space on your drive then download CCleaner from . You can remove the update uninstallers by using Ccleaner and old junk files to free up space.

I looking for window 7 64 bit window installer updater

try control panel - uninstall programs. there is an option to show updates. click on this and then remove the most recent update and try updating again. Suspect last update may be corrupt by removing it it will then re-download and install hopefully a not corrupted update. also check services in control panel an see if there is an update service and stop it and then restart it .

Remove programs

In my opinion, you should remove the older version as it will slow down your computer a little. Unless you use the older version for testing certain software that are not compatible with the newer version, if not there is no reason to have both.

If you are using Windows Vista go to your control panel>perforfance and maintenance. Click on disk cleanup first then when that is done run a defrag. Reboot and you should be running faster. Hope this helps.

Cannot open attachments in Yahoo emai.


I'm guessing that anyone that is having problems with their Yahoo or Google Email, has recently installed Internet Explorer 8 to their pc.IE8 prevents you from opening your mail, (after you sign in, or if it lets you sign in). This is not an isolated problem, everyone is having the same problem.

You just have to uninstall IE 8, if you have Vista, go to Control Panel, then click on System Maintenance, then, under Windows Updates, click on "View Installed Updates".(Search for IE 8 and uninstall) On Vista, IE 8 is an Installed Update, click on Remove, this will remove the IE 8 Update and convert back to your old version of IE. (Probably IE 7)

If you have XP, IE 8 is classified a Program, therefore, go to Control Panel, then under Programs, click on Uninstall a Program, (Search for IE 8 and uninstall)
