I haven't written for a while (you solved my previous problems (vbs)) although I like to read about the help and advice you all give.
Iam 68 years old and get by on my computer, but not computer savvy, so to speak.
My computer installed XP3 about two weeks ago now, and since then I can't update anything on my PC, I click to install updates (evens Windows updates) everything goes through the rigmarole of updating and installing, then Nothing, I get the same message ie System Mechanic professional has updates for instance.
I have the familiar yellow Windows (update needed) shield on my tool bar, I click it, and as before goes through the updating sequence, then tells me install failed ???
I have read here on these pages that I can uninstall XP3 in Safe mode, and keep it off my PC until everything possible has been ironed out by Windows.
I have honestly tried hard to do so (use Safe mode) But I just keep going back on the same things, press F8 use keypad to click on the correct procedure etc..
Nothing seems to work for me.
Is there anyone who can explain in total laymans language, what I could do to remove the XP3.
I can't udate my anti virus and firewall programs, which I am afraid may harm my PC before not too long.
Thank you for your constant help, all of you, I am getting desperate here <s>
