    I have Avast Pro  8-)
    Actually the updates seems fine until I click on the install\download button then everytime it fails installing.
    Sorry, Yes it is XP Home :)

      I've seen this before when an update didn't finish or got the hiccups...

      Turn off automatic updates
      Go to Control Panel / Add remove Programs...
      Uninstall the last update listed...
      Travel to the update site and dload the one you just un-installed...
      Install it manually...
      Re-boot and turn on auto updates...
      Click Windows Update from the Start menu and you should be good to go...

      It's got nothing at all to do with it being a Dell. It is a software or configuration issue.
