    Downloaded automatic updates KB2731847, KB2723135, KB2712808, and KB2705219 on 8/15. Now my property management software stopped working. When I tried to uninstall the updates via add/remove programs it says that an error occured and that it may have already been removed do I want to delete it from add/remove programs? Any suggestions?

    I try to keep Firefox and Google as my email and backup but Security or Microsoft keeps taking them of my windows XP .

    I have trouble connecting to internet.

    I am not going to give my cridit card number out over the internet because Facebook scammed me out of over $100.00 they said was due to a security leak at Microsoft.

    Hoe do i keep google on my computer for good.
