  2. Based upon your instructions:

    2. Type Windows Update and hit Enter

    I typed 'Windows Update' into an MS Word 2007 document and nothing happened
    for the longest time. Totally frustrated, I looked for somewhere else to
    type. I gotten lucky picking IE7, I guess, because up popped the the Vista
    'Windows Update' window, which had instructions to use the WU icon in the
    start menu. Fortunately, it auto started WU, so I didn't have to waste time
    looking myself.


    3. Click Get Updates for More Products

    My WU window does not have that, so I clicked on 'Check for Updates' for
    want of something better to do.

    4. Accept Agreement

    I didn't get an agreement to accept. Very disappointing..


    5. Install

    To install or not to install; that is the question

  3. I took a quick look at that and another page and see the same vague
    information.
    So it is almost useless to a beginner and the experienced are more
    likely to know the information.

    Since the pages are full of ads, this seems more like spam than
    anything else.
    Similar spam by him is on other newsgroups.

  4. Useless and a waste of time.

    Information was not existent and the adds where over whelming.

    Even a halfwit could see this for what it is, SPAM.
