Thanks again for trying to help. I think I understand what is happening.
Let me know if you think this is right.
I went to your last link and put cmd in run and then typed in jview. This
is what it said:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.
C:\Documents and Settings\Mark>jview
'jview' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
According to the above I do not have a copy of the virtual machine on my
computer. The security update is for the virtual machine and I don't have it
and my error message says:
"This setup will only upgrade over an existing version of the Microsoft VM."
So I don't need this upgrade if I don't have VM. How do I stop that
security symbol from appearing in my tray?
