Actually last night when my Windows Download Notification email came I
clicked the link in it to the DL and it was the yellow sheild that you
mention (#1). Normally when I download it's from the location you indicate
as #3, at any rate a little while later, after having posted this topic my
Automatic Updater also indicated to me that it was available for download so
I proceeded to and from what I understand when downloading it from the AU it
automatically runs in the background at the next shut down and thus far
there doesn't seem to be any problem with it. If else fails, I will use the
link you replied with to DL and install it from that location!
Thank you so much for your help!
BTW- Why do you suppose that I was not able to DL it from the yellow
sheild? -I have a legitamate verifiable version of XP MCE.
