Another Question:
From reading comments here, I have come to
understand that Win XP PRO has automatic updates that can occur while I'm trying to
burn a dvd.Sooooo how do I shut this off and where is it located,for me to shut it off?
Please be VERY specific with a step by step
procedure on how to do this.
Thank you

Hi Chickadee,
I went to control panel, but it doesn't have
computer management/services listed.
What now?

You go to START , Go to My computer , right click on it , then left click on Properties , Automatic Updates should be the middle top tab. Click on it and you are there. Third choice down is option to turn off automatic updates & to update manually..........Apply then OK..........
