    Now how do get around that? The "installation already in progress" simply hung up before I could reverse it, so now I'm stuck!
    Go into your taskmanager. Kill process update.exe

    That should fix it for ya.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Well, now I have another problem -- in fact it's one I posted elsewhere but never quite resolved. After downloading and during setup, I received the error message "Unable to connect to metabase" followed by "Setup failed to remove ism.dll script mappings. Service Pack Setup will abort." DOH!
