    I have to install one of those service packs that did not finish installing
    last week. I am guessing that it did not finish installing because my
    antivirus needed to be off. How do I turn it off ( AVG free version)- and
    how can I pick up the installation where it left off. When I go to the
    website and view installation history, the service pack status says 'in
    progress'. then is says read more. but I dont know even what the "Q"number
    is. If I find which one it was, can i pick to install that one manually???
    please help.

    Are you referring to Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1? The "In progress"
    status on the Windows Update history is by design. Typically all service
    packs and exclusive updates require a restart to complete the installation.
    After restart Windows Update is longer active therefore unable to verify

    Check if Internet Explorer SP1 is installed:

    Open Internet Explorer
    Select Help > About Internet Explorer
    Under Update version SP1 should be listed.
