    Attempted to run update Tuesday night; have tried again tonight (Wednesday).
    Running VISTA on Dell INSPIRON E1705. Have not had problems in past with
    updates. Have not been presented with message after DOWNLOAD, 'Do you accept
    license agreement.' Cannot run update without receiving error code 80200052.
    Hints with 9.5MB new update...TKS
