My Vista based laptop went on-line overnight an downloaded updates. This morning my brother's XP based machine downloaded updates. So today he let me back into the computer room with my XP and told me to put it on-line for updates. First I had to connect it to the network. The only spare network cable was the one with a broken locking tab. It sits stable enough in my Inspirion 531 Computer that it worked. It's downloading 276MBytes of updates. Including new virus and malware definitions for Microsoft Security Essentials. Imagine how many Gigabytes it would take to update it if I waited until October 25 when my computer room ban ends.
