    ...and it is a right nuisance cos it takes half an hour for it to complete
    when all I want to do is read a quick e mauil etc. It was set at update
    every day at 0300 as recommended ..I have rescheduled this to weekly but I
    don't use the pc that much and I DONT want to leave it on overnight wasting
    energy...

    ...suggestions please
