    I have a Sony VAIO pc with Win Xp media center 2005. I am trying to download updates on the VAIO . I download the files and save them into a folder called " updates". When i open the folder and open one of the files , all I get is a bunch of gibberish letters and squares. Can you explain what is happening and why I cannot see the contents of the file.
