    Hi there:

    I have my WU settings set to notify, but not to download or install. WhenI first got the notification, I downloaded all four of them via the WU website. But the Notify shield icon persists in the system tray in spite of several reboots. At first it showed two supposedly missing office updates which had already been installed, as confirmed via the WU site and the Control Panel.

    Now it shows two options--Either express install or custom install. I think thsoe are for office updates already successfully installed.

    If I opt to install these via Custom Install , would they:

    1) Simply install over the ones already there?

    OR

    2) Give me custom options to install them, whereby I can opt not to do over whats already there.

    OR

    3) Create problems with WU?

    Please advise further.

    Kind regards:

    Ira

  2. I assume you're referring to Automatic Updates in WinXP.

    Express Install: All four updates will install with no further prompts.

    Custom Install: You will be prompted to choose which of the four updates you want to install.
