    About 2 weeks ago "updates" offered me "Vista SP2", (I'm running Ultimate
    SP1 at present) having heard various tales of woe about installing this I
    decided to decline the offer 'till I had investigated further.
    Now the dratted update doesn't show in those available for my machine!
    I am loathe to download the whole shebang since as I understand it, the
    version offered to each individual, is tailored to that specific machine and
    I want to give it a fighting chance of installing correctly!!

    Anyone know how I can coax MS Updates to offer it to me again?
    Updates says there are no new updates for my machine (except IE8 which I
    don't yet want and 39 language packs..no thanks!) also no hidden updates
    which I understand might block SP2 being offered...in spite of the fact that
    it has once been offered and nothing has changed in the meantime??

    what can I do?
