Rename the software distribution folder
1. Stop the Windows Update service (make sure you are logged on as an Administrator)

Start button || Control Panel ||System and Maintenance ||Administrative Tools
Double-click Services
(Provide the Administrator password or confirmation if prompted to do so.)
Right-click the Windows Update service and click Stop.

2. Click Start, type %windir% in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

Locate and rename the SoftwareDistribution folder.

3. Start the Windows Update service

Start button || Control Panel ||System and Maintenance ||Administrative Tools
Double-click Services
(Provide the Administrator password or confirmation if prompted to do so.)
Right-click the Windows Update service and click Start.

Important: Restart the computer, and then run Windows Update again.
Renaming the software distribution folder will erase your history on the Windows Update Site. Anytime you wish to check what updates are installed you can: -
Start button || Control Panel || Programs
Under Programs and Features - click View installed updates.

Rename the Catroot2 folder

1. Click Start, type cmd in the Start Search box, right-click cmd.exe, and then click Run as administrator.
2. At the command prompt, type the following commands, and then press ENTER after each line:


net stop cryptsvc
ren %systemroot%\System32\Catroot2 oldcatroot2
net start cryptsvc
exit


3. Delete all tmp*.cat files from the following folder:


%systemroot%\system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}


If no files that start with “tmp” exist in this folder, do not remove any other files. The .cat files in this folder are necessary for installing hotfixes and service packs.

Important: Do not rename the Catroot folder. The Catroot2 folder is automatically recreated by Windows, but the Catroot folder is not recreated if the Catroot folder is renamed.

Re-Install “Windows Update Agent”.

Download and install the latest version of “Windows Update Agent ” on your computer.

How to obtain the latest version of the Windows Update Agent to help manage updates on a computer
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949104
Information for network administrators about how to obtain the latest Windows Update Agent
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946928

To reinstall Windows Update Agent - download the relevant file for your system and save it to a drive where Vista is not loaded because the file cannot be launched directly from the system root directory.
Click Start, click Run, type: "D:\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce" (without quotations) and then press Enter to install the Windows Update engine.

Note: There is a space between "D:\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" and "/wuforce"
D: is the drive where Windows is not installed (ie a flash drive or a 2nd hard drive etc)

I was using my equium on friday wirelesly and now have lost all connectivity,other laptop ok. I can't seem to turn on wireless capability despite using FN-F8.


Go to your device manager and make sure the device is still active and showing up in your device list. If it is, then it may just be a driver issue. Update or re-install the driver, if that doesn't do it, un-install the device itself but keep the drivers, then when you reboot, windows will either load the installed drivers or will ask you to allow it to search windows update for a fresh driver, allow it to do so and reboot when it is done.

S30 3d - free update - utterly useless


sounds like your install/setup is got its pants stuck.

The best solution is to reinstall programme or repair option, then uninstall completely, reboot, reinstall connect navman and you should get a result.

The download is probably speed specific - ie will only be good if it get to run at the correct speed.

Try to download it all first.

the best site i found

How come my computer keeps turning on and off by it's self ?


It's got into a reset loop - often it's a fault on the memory card(s) or possibly even a software fault after an update or new programme. Try going in in safe mode (keep tapping F8 whilst starting up) and see if re-sets itself.
If not then it's likely to be software. Remove the last programme loaded and then restart the machine - see if that works.
You can try to reseat the memory cards for another possible solution.
