Ask Computer Networking Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.What sort of network is it disconnecting from during the night, please? describe the circumstances a bit more, and I can have a guess at least as to what is going wrong.
OK. Can you look into the virus stuff, on the XP computer, and find out whether the update has completed *before* the network cuts off, and if so, at what hour? it might be important.
Good. After that is done, the results will suggest whether the cutoff of the network connection might be from the attempt to update in the early a.m. hours, or be completely separate from that.
Well, perhaps. But first, try checking the Update History. See whether (in
Start - Control Panel - Add or Remove Programs
and find the Windows Update History (by checking the Show Updates checkbox).
Does it show the 16 updates as having not 'Failed' ?
