Windows Update won't show the updates that it wants to install

Hi All


I just got the new updates for my Vista Biz OS.

Problem is that it won't show the name of the updates that it is going 
to install, it just shows that they are 5.

Now, I need to know *what* I am installing before I do that, right?

How come it is not showing that?

Bug? I checked the computer with my AV and antispyware software: system 
is ok.

Any ideas?

thanks

Are you telling us that when you go to Windows Update or Microsoft Update and you do 
the scan for Updates then when the scan finishes all it shows you after that there 
are 5 of them but it does not tell you which ones or does not give you the 
description of the updates. Is this the case you are describing ?

Click on the highlighted text that says "There are 5 important updates" 
(or something similar) when the updates are presented.

Later when the summary appears (or if you open "Windows Update" you'll 
see the highlighted text "View update history".

How to check the style of window is not WS_EX_APPWINDOW ?

Preventing Recipient Names from Showing

Windows XP: Open file in read-only: Word, Excel, Visio
I'm often sharing files on a network drive with someone. Often, one of us knows that we don't need to open a file for modification, and we only need read-access. Is there a way to open a file in read-only mode so that when someone does need to open it for modification, the read-only user is not blocking that? If there is not a way to do this native to Windows XP, is there a way to do it from the three applications that we use most, namely Word, Excel, Visio? All are 2003 versions. Thx. I used to save files like this in "read only recommended" mode. File|SaveAs|Tools|Ge...

How to remove the /dde from Windows Explorer File Open on Install
I have an MDI app that I would like to open a file on a double click in Windows Explorer. Unfortunately the Explorer File Type (Tools>Folder Options... File Types tab) is set so that the command invokes dde. Ie. The "open" option under the "Advanced" button is C:\Path...\App.exe /dde and the DDE message is [open("%1")]. This never seems to work as my app never sees the dde message and the initialization of m_pCmdInfo via: m_pCmdInfo = (CCommandLineInfo*)(UINT_PTR)m_nCmdShow; sets the pointer to one and the app fails on exit.

Comments window
Hi there, I use a DB tool called RS3 for Excel (now known as Accord for Excel - owned by Accelrys inc.). This tool allows you to observe results with cell notes, these commonly being the the average of the result values. the cell notes is a popup window showing the individual result values the average is calculated from. It only shows a maximum of 5 of these values. Additional values can be shown by choosing Tools>Options>View tab, and choosing Comments & indicator. This shows the comments as stable windows, which you can then resize. Now if you go back to the same pla...

How To Update Jet Componenet on Win 7 ?
I just got a new system with Win 7 Pro installed. I loaded in Office 2000 and Office 2003. During loading of 2003, I removed everything of 2000 except for Access 2000.

Installing 2007 over 2000 suite
We are a church with very, very old software. I recently bought Publisher 2007 (standalone--and worrying that was a mistake) but am having trouble. It installed alright, but it will not open/start. We run XP and Office 2000 Sm Business and Publisher 2000 installed now. IE v. 7. I was urged to buy the Pub 2007 as the upgrade isn't supported by Vista which we will probably be going to in the near future. I know the old 2000 version is on here still, but it came as part of a suite. Is there a way to make 2007 work? Or is there a way to uninstall Pub 2000 ala carte? Are you receivi...
