    Thanks, so much better this way.

    Microsoft needs to learn that change for changes sake isn't always the right way forward!

    If you like for that, you could use this tutorial to add Windows Update back to the Control Panel, then create a Windows Update shortcut using the location below. Afterwards, move the shortcut to where you like, and "Pin to Start" the shortcut.

    %windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{36eef7db-88ad-4e81-ad49-0e313f0c35f8}

    Very nice! With this I was able to install and keep from updating the forced AMD/ATI drivers that kills several apps. The strange thing is now it shows that I've "never" check for updates and "never" installed any but checking installed updates shows that I have done both.

    Ah! After I just checked for updates the two "nevers" was replaced with dates, etc. We'll see what shows tomorrow, etc.
