UPDATE : My hard disk crashed. That explains it all :huh:

Hi,

I was downloading updates manually so I can use them on other machines in my network too.

While downloading KB2378111 for Vista, I encountered a strange thing - download was originally 12.1MB but it stopped in the middle. I downloaded again, this time the size was merely 2.7MB !

Looks like Microsoft is modifying the released updates at will. What about those who downloaded older update? Or is this something on my side (creepy) ?

BC friends and seniors, please share your opinions and show me the light :huh:

Thanks :huh:

Thanks Broni.
Later I found more strange activities. After setting it to perform chkdsk, when I rebooted my hard disk could not be found. Just checked by plugging it into other system, it is gone :huh:

As for the change of size in download files...I might attribute that to the fact that some files had already been downloaded onto your system. I can't say for sure, but that's my wild guess :huh:.

Sorry about the hard drive, but with multiple systems, it's not the tragedy it could have been.

I had one DOA last month.
