I will try that Nihil.
I did an online scan with trend micro and quite a few vulnerabilities came up. I am going through them one by one. One of the patches I downloaded for Exel 2007 failed on installation. I will download the rest and keep everyone updated.
I have a feeling alot of them or even all of them are going to fail.
The IE problem that Arpanet gave me links for: I followed the instructions to stop start the service however the service is/was already running so I have no idea what the problem is as the solution was to start the service but it is/was already running...
