Re: power outage during installation of updates
With a bit of luck no damage will have been done. Theoretically at least
Windows is capable of coping with this situation, and the fact that the system
booted up successfully is a good sign!
I suggest you visit the Microsoft Update web site. This should detect any
updates that still need to be installed. Let us know if any of the updates fail
to install properly, but otherwise I think it safe to assume that all is OK
unless and until your system develops any visible problems.
