    I have to update my Vaio Update software (version 3) to version 4. The instructions on the Sony website say:

    1. Download the file to a temporary or download directory (Please note this directory for reference later).
    2. Uninstall the existing VAIO Update and restart the unit.
    3. After the unit has restarted, please go to the directory where the file was downloaded and double-click EP0000162589.exe.
    4. Follow the instructions displayed in the installation wizard.
    5. After installation is completed, please restart the computer.

    All is clear to me, except that I don't know whether "unit" is another word for "computer", or something different altogether...? If they mean the same thing, then the same word should be used. Anyway, I don't know whether I have to reboot my computer after removing Vaio Update 3 or whether I can install version 4 directly after removing version 3. Sorry if this sounds silly.
