Only got time to look at the first section Mike, but thanks for making another dull day seem brighter.  Margaret

Thanks for your reply Mike.  I now remember seeing the 'smart dog' at the beginning of this thread, dated 10th July.  My memory isn't as good as it used to be!     Margaret

Am I missing something Mike - the last humorous link I can find in the link section is 'invisible drum kit by Rowan Atkinson' - no reference to a dog.   Should I be looking elsewhere?      Margaret

Now I have realized where the link button is, and scrolled to the bottom of that page, I have found the 'Humorous link of the month'!  Thanks for taking the time and trouble, and I will certainly be looking out for them in future.  Margaret

Thanks for your reply Mike - I will now Google 'How to hide Microsoft updates' - I never think of the obvious!  Margaret

 Quote from Mike 'This is part of the fun for Geoff and me but may not be how you wish to spend your time.' 

Mike?s comments struck a chord which is why I am still limping along with our original and only computer bought in 2004, running Windows XP and last updated to IE7!  I have Firefox as my preferred browser and use IE only for the Microsoft updates which I customize so I can pick and choose, and have been avoiding the update for IE8 (or IE9) which I used to keep hidden.  This facility seems to have disappeared so I keep on having the notice ?updates are ready for your computer? only to find the update is IE8.  I would be interested to find out

Is it possible to retrieve the ?hidden? facility
Do I really need IE just for Microsoft updates and if so
Should I be updating to the latest number even though it will probably cause me grief

Thanks in advance
