Microsoft Update only updates Windows Defender

iacrosoft Update only updates Windows Defender - I have to use Belarc Advisor 
to get a list of missing updates, and then go to the Microsoft Download 
Center to search for the missing updates and download and install them one at 
a time.
I have Windows XP Home SP3, with Microsoft Update set to automatic download 
- can anyone tell me why I do not get all the necessary upadtes?

Is this a sudden, new problem?  When was Automatic Updates last working? 
Can you update manually via http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com?

Any chance you've got a beta build of WinXP SP3 installed?

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your 
subscription current?  What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)? 
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the 
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought 
it)?

Performance Counter in windows vista
Hi, I Have no idea about performance counter in windows vista. Can any one pelase tell me, Is it possible to reset the peformance counter in windows vista by using MFC with ATL?. If it possible means, please explain me. There is an unfortunate fixation on OO programming that says "every capability of the OS is exposed by way of some MFC or ATL class" and this is simply not true. If you know how to read a performance counter, you just read it as if you never heard of MFC or ATL. If you want to write a class to do it, feel free. Not every OS capability has a class to go with...

How do I control where the new message window appears?

windows should reopen in their previously opened size and position
We use large monitors and some dual-monitor setups. Most of the dialogue windows open up designed for a small resolution setting. For example, the "cards/Accounts" window opens up and only shows 10 accounts in the collapsed view. Almost every time I use that window I have to resize and reposition it, and then as soon as it closes and reopens, it is back to the puny size again. There should be an option to "remember" window sizes and positions. ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microsoft responds to the suggestions with the most votes. T...

Can Outlook 2003 use MSN Messenger INSTEAD of Windows Messenger?

I recently purchased a new computer (Windows XP Home Edition w/SP2) and loaded up all of the available updates to the OS, Internet Explorer, etc. Next, I installed Office 2003 Professional. I disabled Messenger integration with Outlook 2003 as discussed in other posts here. Next I installed MSN Messenger 6.2 and it seemed to run properly as a stand-alone application. So I re-enabled Messenger integration on Outlook 2003. The next time I booted up and ran Outlook, the Messenger icon appeared in the taskbar...
