    [MS WinXP Home 2002 - SP3; OE 6; IE 8; MS Office Pro; Avast Antivir Free;
    Dell Dimension XPS T448MHz Pentium III; 640 MB RAM; high speed cable;
    Windows Media Player; Adobe Reader 8; Adobe Flash Player 10 Activex..]


    Hello again! New 2 little problems?:

    (1) I had installed successfully Windows XP SP3. When it offered an
    update, the first one, and I ran it by placing the Office XP
    Professional...CD which it asked for, BUT, it doesn't show it under the
    Windows Updates in add/remove. Did I do something wrong? Windows isn't
    showing anymore on my Taskbar the offer to update....

    (2) When I finished the above update, my computer instantly froze. I
    rebooted and found on my Taskbar the "Outlook" icon instead of my "Outlook
    Express". I was able to get OE back, but Is it okay to delete the
    "Outlook" icon from the Taskbar?

    Thanks so much for your valuable suggestions! :eek:) Adela

    P.S. Thank goodness that this newsgroup is still on....Don't know when it
    will disappear as all the others did. I had a problem downloading the
    http://communitybridge.codeplex.com/
    but I'll try again. :^) and/or try also the other suggested sites.

    1. Office updates should be listed under the Office component that was
    updated or under the Office XP Pro heading. Key word being *should*.
    If you don't remember which update(s) installed, check either the
    ReportingEvents.log, located at
    Windows\Software Distribution\ReportingEvents.log or the
    WindowsUpdate.log, located in Windows.

    2. *Right* click the Outlook shortcut on the Taskbar, choose Properties.
    Does Target: specify the path to Outlook or Outlook Express?

    In either case it should be safe to delete the extraneous shortcut since
    you stated that Outlook is not installed.
