My sister whom is in university has a laptop. This laptop is 1.5 years old and has been working perfectly until currently. It seems that while she was sleeping an autimatic update was installed on her computer concerning Software Distribution Service 3.0. This update has dramatically affected the performance of her computer. The computers internet explorer is not working anymore event though she is getting the distribution from the provider even though it was working fine before hand and also the icons are not shown on her desktop. So she asked me to help her fix it. I tried system restore but it wont restore the computer at any points, my suspicion is because it is a Microsoft thing. My sister really needs to have the internet for university and this thing has messed it up. I dont know what to do, but would like some input upon this matter of software didstribution service 3. please reply soon

go to add remove programs and see if there is an unistall option for the software distribution. make sure you create a restore point before you unistall in case anything drastic happens

When you go into add remove programs make sure the box is checked to show updates and you should be able to see the date installed for all microsoft updates look for yesterdays date and see what was installed and you should be able to uninstall that update

to turn of auto updates go to control panel click on auto updates and turn off auto updates or at least make sure they dont auto install. they should download but not install until you install them
