trinket, I have to sincerely thank you once again. The same Windows Update issue and sound crashing from all of 18 months ago reared its ugly head again today because I forgot all about it. BAD mistake. I was trying to update Microsoft Silverlight and inadvertantly unleashed the monster out of its cage again.
BUT I vaguely remembered a thread from back in 2011 and in it I found a link you provided back then for disabling processes and services through the Control Panel and Admin Tools - and it has worked wonders a second time!
Turns out I thanked you 18 months ago, and I thank you again. You've saved me from sending the laptop to that clueless repair shop down the road and not having it over the weekend.
Big hugs and kisses for trinket! My tech hero!
btw...I friend requested you eons ago...and it says you never accepted. lol Huntneo is sad...
haha...thanks for the comment. I'm so glad someone got where I was coming from. It's truly a sight to behold!
Heeeeeeey! just stopping by to say hello!
