On two Xp machines (Xp home and XpPro64) the System Distribution/reporting
events. log listed that x# of updates had been identified. There was no icon
in the system tray. When the machine was shut down THEN at the choices
dialog box had the message Install now before shutting down, or don't
Is this the routine that is the procedure now?
If a user doesn't shut down their machine at the end of the day then there
is no message to indicate that security updates are waiting to install. I
just happened to check the reportingevents.log out of curiousity since the
first week of the month had passed by and I wondered what was happening with
updates. The message "to install now"was still a little bit of a surprise
although during install a message kept flashing that the machine would be
shut down automatically.
