    I've been trying to get all MS Windows & Office updates installed on new
    laptop (Windows XP). It took hours and lots of problems (freezing up, etc.)
    but everything was finally installed excpet this one: MS SQL Server 2005
    Express Edition SP 3 (KB955706). I don't even know what this is or if I need
    it, but I've rebooted several times and updates keep saying I need it, but it
    won't install.

    Weird, but the MS update site says it is 0KB and will take 0 time, so I
    don't know what to think. Do I really need this and if so, what do I do?

    Hi Engel,

    I do appreciate the reply, but to tell the truth, I just don't feel
    computer-savy enough to feel comfortable doing those steps. Besides, this is
    a brand new computer and the very first thing I try to do is get Windows
    updated before installing anything else. Since I had other problems like
    weird vertical lines running in columns across the screen making everything
    freeze to where I had to manually shut it down. Even got the dreaded "blue
    screen of death" a couple of times with messages that it's either faulty
    outdated drivers or hardware RAM issues. So I'm taking this laptop back
    where I bought it from yesterday. It's an Acer Extensa 4620-6456 if anyone
    wants to know that... I don't know whether to assume that this was just a
    fluke computer because research showed good enough stuff about Acer, but I
    think my confidence is shattered enough that I don't know if I'll risk all
    the time and effort to see if another one works better or not. All this
    because I wanted a new laptop with XP instead of Vista! Oh well... thanks
    again and if anyone has any more insights, I'd be interested to hear. Best,
    Malia

    Usually I install the antivirus software before doing windows updates.
    Had an experience once where I was updating via modem and got a nasty
    virus before the windows workstation was patched.

    Now my standard practice for new machines is the following:

    1. Install AV with current update before connecting workstation to
    internet.
    2. Run AV scan.
    3. Connect workstation to internet.
    4. Windows updates.
    5. Run AV scan again.

    This procedure has worked every time when installing windows patches.
    Hope this helps.
