Phoebus,

Please make sure that you have applied all Critical & Important updates for your PCs. . In the important category, always select all except the obvious MS product upsells like Bing & Windows Live unless you use either of these.

Why some of the updates are buried in the Important category is beyond me.

Hello, there are several possible factors that could cause this:

- the updated Viewer requires a later Version of the c++ Runtime Libary (try to update the runtime libary)

- The runtime libary has an issue with the application ( viewer) here are some hotfixes offered by microsoft: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884538

- or it could be a similar problem to a former issue that the firestorm viewer also had. They suggested to uninstall the viewer (in your case whatever viewer you are using) , then remove all left over files manually from the former installation directory, get the full latest viewer version (not the update version) and install it fresh.

- If none of the above solutions helped please create a support ticket: https://support.secondlife.com/create-case/

@ Karen:  i believe its to separate them into needed, necessary, and potentially wanted updates. Since tere are so many sub updates and categories and softwareupdates and we mostly only need the half of it anyways. This way we can limit the amount of downloads / updates being pulled whenever updated. Very usefull actually instead of clustering your bandwidth with stuff you didnt even want =)
