The little yellow shield appeared in my system tray today wanting to install the following updates
"security upadate for .net framework 2.0 sp2 and 3.5 sp1on windows server 2003 KB2518864, KB257073, and KB2633880"
As usual I'm pretty prompt with these and clicked on install expecting withinn a short time for the 'restart your computer' box to come up. However, this time the box doesn't appear and the shield reappears shortly after finishing the installations with the same updates and I have repeated this several times and have a feeling it will go on forever as there must be something wrong.
I have had a problem with a New Hardware connection wizard box popping up everytime on boot up when I have not installed any new hardware (.Net was the name of the harware). After googling this I found that it was a problem with installing drivers for 'vbox' which is some kind of proxy set up that I attempted a while ago, and when installing the program failed after 'TAP Win32 Adapter OAS' could not be located. from this point on I now realise is when the hardware wizard kept appearing. So, I went into my device drivers and disabled the TAP-win32 and the harware wizard stopped appearing.
After these updates were not installing properly I went back and enabled the driver again but the updates remain uninstalled.
Is there any correlation between these two problems?
How to I rectify both?
I'm running Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3
Thanks in advance for any ideas/suggestions/complete cures...
