I have only had my Acer notebook a couple of weeks now and just minor glitches and now I have a major one.
The Staples tech when other apps were installed was to have set M$ updates to Manual, as I like to have control; but obviously he did not.

I browsed all night for a prolject i am working on and got a lot of info. Then I shut off the notebook and was ready cto call it a night. Then the Windows started to d/l 4 updates, much to my chagrin and I did not know how to stop it.

Now today I get up to resume my and the IE 7 vers. 5.1.2600 sp2 bld 200 keeps encountering a problem and must close.

Everything was working fine until after those 4 patches.
They are:
1. Malicious software tool kb890830
2.Update Windows XP
3, Security Network Framework Version 1.1 s/p kb928366
4. Security Network Framework vers.2 kb928365

How do I shug off this stupid auto update and how do I figure out which is the culprit or maybe there are more than one causing the issue???

I really need to get the project done and need advice as soon as possibel.
