What happened to Windows Update

Post by DCP11OC » Sat Feb 07, 2009 8:24 am

Windows Update seems to have been removed.

Microsoft Update seems to have replaced it, this has not happened to me before, can anyone assist?
Thanks.

The only difference that I made to the install disc was that I slipstreamed IE7, WMP11 and used RyanVM post-sp3 pack, so I do not know if this is WAD?

Microsoft Update runs on top of Windows Update, and if you wish to disable Microsoft Update, you can do that at the Microsoft Update site.

Thanks guys.

I was just asking because I was worried about not seeing it - that's all as I am new to the update pack I didn't expect it to replace the Windows Update because on all my other Windows installations, Microsoft Update and Windows Update are simutaniously installed!

Thanks again :)
