Q: "Important" updates to install on vista?

I recently wiped my entire computer and restored it to its original factory settings because of the Vista Home Security virus and my computer was several years behind on updates Then I updated my system to the SP then the SP I just glanced at my start menu and it says that there are important updates to install and optional ones Is this normal One the update says A security issue has been identified that could allow an authenticated remote attacker to compromise your system and gain control over it You on "Important" updates to install vista? can help protect your system by installing this update from Microsoft The update is called Security Update for Windows Vista KB I may just be a tad paranoid from my very aggravating experience by contracting the Vista Home Security virus that would pop up every couple of days But I d rather "Important" updates to install on vista? be safe than sorry Hijackthis Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v Scan saved at AM on Platform Windows Vista SP WinNT MSIE Internet Explorer v Boot mode Normal Running processes C Windows system taskeng exe C Windows system Dwm exe C Windows Explorer EXE C Program Files Windows Defender MSASCui exe C Windows System hkcmd exe C Windows System igfxpers exe C Program Files Synaptics SynTP SynTPEnh exe C Program Files Sony ISB Utility ISBMgr exe C Program Files Java jre bin jusched exe C Program Files Sony VAIO Center Access Bar VCAB exe C Program Files Sony VAIO PC Wireless LAN Wizard AutoLaunchWLASU exe C Program Files Adobe Acrobat Acrobat acrotray exe C Program Files Common Files Symantec Shared ccApp exe C Program Files Windows Sidebar sidebar exe C Program Files The Weather Channel The Weather Channel App TWCApp exe C DDI AOLICON exe C Program Files WIDCOMM Bluetooth Software BTTray exe C Program Files Windows Sidebar sidebar exe C Windows system wuauclt exe C Program Files Mozilla Firefox firefox exe C Program Files Mozilla Firefox plugin-container exe C Windows system igfxsrvc exe C Users Jennie Downloads HijackThis exe R -

Preferred Solution: "Important" updates to install on vista?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: "Important" updates to install on vista?

Check Computer properties and make sure that it says you have SP2. That does sound like a lot of updates, but then there have been some almost every "Update Tuesday", so the number may vey well be quite high.

You may not want to download and install them all at one time, however. Pick a bunch and install, and then some more later. It's not likely that problems will arise, but if you have smaller batches, you'll have an easier time finding any that cause trouble.

Then, be smart. After you get it all set up, back it up. Your hard drive will fail, more infections will come along, and you'll be doing this all again if you are not prepared. Periodic updates to your backup will keep it recent and you can keep the first one as your "factory restore". You can even merge your restore partition with your main one for more space and make an image of that for your "factory restore". Since it will have all your programs, updates, and files, it will save you a lot of time for recovery.

Free drive backup software (imaging, cloning, and archiving - backups can be created on a second hard drive, internal or external, or on DVD's, or BluRay disks. One BluRay disk will hold most peoples' entire system drive's backup at 25 GB's using compressed images, 50 GB's double-layer):

Paragon Backup & Recovery 2012 (Recovery boot CD or USB key)
Macrium Reflect (Free)
O&O Disk Image Express or (mirror)
Easeus Todo Backup
ODIN (open-source)
Redo Backup & Recovery (Boot CD)
Clonezilla Live (A bootable CD of Debian with Clonezilla.)
Drive Image XML
PING (Partimage is not Ghost) (Boot CD with option Clam Antivirus)
Partition Saving
Clonezilla
Passmark OSFClone (Bootable, cloning only)

There are also many commercial products with more features.

Hi,
Why do we get the option "Windows Updates. Important updates are available. Go to PC settings to install them" on the logon screen? Need to remove this option but without altering the update functionality. We are using SCCM for windows update.
Can you help how to remove it by GPO or any other option for large scale systems (5000+). At present the user cannot install the updates as it has been restricted. Attached the screen shot also.

For a while these updates have been showing up in Windows Updates, and they never install properly. Every time I shut down, it goes through a lengthy "update" in which nothing is actually installed. Any suggestions?

Greetings Seven Forums Gurus and apologies for the TL ad "Restart to important your infinitum - install computer updates" DR nature of this "Restart your computer to install important updates" - ad infinitum post Trying to put all the relevant "Restart your computer to install important updates" - ad infinitum information in So a problem has come up from a little old lady customer here She got hit by the non-voluntary Windows upgrade last week - caught it somewhere before it did the final install and who knows what she did exactly but before I got a chance to look at the computer she had somehow managed to revert to At that point I ran the GWX toolbox and canned the upgrades but by then the damage was done and the machine won't check for updates and won't stop saying it "Restart your computer to install important updates" - ad infinitum hasn't finished installing the last update Notice it says never checked for and never installed updates - these are probably as a result of some of the stuff I have tried It also says quot You receive updates - for Windows only quot although there is no option on the settings page to check for other products' updates Incidentally I have also tried changing the settings to Never install updates and removing both check-marks - makes no difference Under Update History the only item listed is Hotfix for Windows KB that's the System Update Readiness Tool which I ran manually today If I click quot check for updates quot it very quickly pops up a little window to say quot Windows Update cannot currently check for updates because you must first restart the computer quot blah blah blah Well it's been restarted more than a dozen times with all the various things I've tried OK so what have I tried Amongst other things and not necessarily in this order it's been a couple of days of hacking around I tell you - Microsoft Fixit twice I think - Tweaking com quot Windows Repair AIO quot - Manually resetting update components Otion from tutorial - SURT as mentioned above - sfc scannow I don't know why I bothered with this one I've never seen it do anything - in this case it reported no errors nothing to do - possibly some other stuff I have forgotten now Every time Windows Update - restart your computer And of course the nag box that gives you the option of postponing for minutes hour or hours The System amp Application event logs show no errors or even warnings that look even vaguely relevant to me There is no Windows Update error number to quote Just refuses to check for updates The CBS log folder consists of four CbsPersist CAB files of between and MB that don't compress and one of about MB None of them are recent four days old and older - any point in uploading any of them I have included the current CBS log file as well as the quot uneventful quot SUR logfiles So any helpful suggestions will be gratefully accepted PS I would have reverted Windows to a previous state if there were any but alas

A:"Restart your computer to install important updates" - ad infinitum

Hi Chris,
Try this for starters.

1. Close all the open windows.
2. Click the "Start" Button, click "All programs", and click "Accessories".
3. Right-click "Command Prompt" and click "Run as administrator".
4. In "Administrator: Command Prompt" window, type in " net stop WuAuServ " (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Note: Please look at the cmd window and make sure it says that it was successfully stopped before you try to rename the folder.
5. Click the "Start" Button, in the "Start Search" box, type in " %windir% " (without the quotes) and press Enter.
6. In the opened folder, look for the folder named "SoftwareDistribution".
7. Right-click on the folder, select "Rename" and type " Sdold " (without the quotes) to rename this folder.
8. Still in "Administrator: Command Prompt" window, type the command " net start WuAuServ " (without the quotes) in the opened window to restart the Windows Updates service.

Thanks Alex
I had already tried the steps in the post you linked.
In the end I have had to reinstall Windows 7 over the top (keeping all settings) and this has fixed the issue with Windows Updates.
It is frustrating that I could not find a solution as I do not like glossing over the issues without first finding a solution but unfortunately it was not my pc and time was against me.
Thanks for all the replies.

Hi,

I have several Updates that fail; 3 of which are classified as "Important." The updates get applied, I reboot, then after reaching 99%, I get the error message, "We would not complete your updates. Undoing changes."

KB2962409, 2967917, 2981580, and all versions for English Input Personalization Dictionary (e.g., 2881553) fail.

I connected with the Answer Desk and they told me to try the two-button reset (Volume Up + Power button) and then after reboot, try the updates again. Needless to say, I rolled my eyes, complied and, of course, it didn't work and I'm getting the same result.

The Answer Tech also told me that the 4 KBs I mentioned above will be pulled and replaced in a few days. I am skeptical but, regardless, I am still stuck with not being able to get those updates installed.

I'm running Windows 8.1 on a Surface Pro 2.

Any ideas? Thanks!

A:Any way to hide "you have hidden important updates" WGA nag banner in Windows Update?

Description of Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA)

It's pretty basic. The core of it is, they are a company that sells computer Operating System software and don't want to be ripped off. And to prevent rip-offs from updating beneficial security and other support they provide FREE, they require you run the WGA.

That isn't unreasonable.

Don't like it? Get Linux or whatever.

Hi Looking for insight advice re KB According to Infoworld it was quot Optional quot in May but I was not offered it then This KB3054476 "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" offered as week it was offered as quot Important quot and quot Recommended quot but only for one of my Win boxes I have read the MS KB article as well as THIS FORUM THREAD the latter of which includes a report of a BSOD due to this particular update However there isn't much out on the web about it And most of the discussion about it is overly technical for me And I am confused as to why it was previously offered as quot Optional quot but now is quot Important quot KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" or quot Recommended quot I don't think I quot need quot it as I have no webcam on this box And I don't like KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" to tempt fate by fixing things that are not broken So questions Is it safe to install Is it really necessary important Or would I be OK to hide it Thanks very much in advance

A:KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional"

The status of updates changes with circumstances.
If an update isn't relevant, it won't be offered at all.
If however it's relevant but the related software is not apparently in use, it may be 'optional' - and gravitate to 'Recommended' or 'Important' if the related software is in use.
It can also be promoted through the hierarchy by MS depending on feedback through WU and error-trapped feedback.


If you have (and use) a webcam, then it's probably best to install the update.

Can you install anything else on your computer?

If not,

Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

Copy/Paste the following command:

regedit /e C:\look.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSIServer"

Press Enter.

You won't notice anything. However, it will have created a report on your C drive

Hello again, friends.

Ok so here's my new issue. I got a new hard drive and successfully installed Windows 7 on it. I temporarily slaved the old OS hard drive so that I could copy some files from it because the drive was failing.

My issue is that when I check for updates, it doesn't go beyond the "checking" and it basically times out. Seems odd... has anyone else had this happen and what do I do? You don't think that maybe the computer is confused because the OS still remains on the drive that is temporarily slaved do you? One odd thing is that I checked the update history and clearly some went on there. So I don't know. Help?

You guys rock. Thanks for helping me out with the last issue.

Toshiba are talking out of their nether regions.
The first thing you need to check is what's booting at startup - use MSCONFIG for that.
Uncheck anything you *know* you don't use, and list the rest in a reply.
Open Task Manager - what's taking up most resources (enable viewing of processes from all users)?

4GB is quite enough for most purposes.

What Security software is installed? - what different Anti-Virus programs have EVER been installed?

So I have this weird thing happening in my relatively fresh install of Windows 10.
Whenever I search for "Check for Updates" or "Windows Update settings" on the search box of the start menu, I get the results that I want but if I press enter or try to click on those results nothing happens.. As far as I know I can click all others search results but those, and maybe others related to windows update.

I can still get updates by going to Settings>Update & Security though.

In my other computers this works fine, and as far as I can tell all the updates are done.
From what I've searched around other people seemed to have a similar issue where they couldn't acess the settings at all which isn't my case. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results.

Sorry to hear about your problem and hope you got it sorted out. I myself have had no problems with Auto Updates, I just make sure it doesn't download and install drivers. You can do this by opening:

1- Windows Update, then clicking on...
2- Change settings, and under...
3- Recommended Updates make sure the...
4- "Include recommended updates when downloading, installing, or notifying me about updates" check box is unchecked. This will prevent those recommended driver updates from automatically downloading and installing on your system. From your explanation, it sounds like that's exactly what happened - a driver got downloaded and installed.

You need to boot with the VISTA DVD on the next re start and attempt a repair, in this case, System Restore" (that I always turn OFF) ... if a restore to the time before the update was successful, load Windows, turn Automatic Updates OFF temporarily, Update all your hardware firmware if any, including Motherboard BIOS, update all your drivers from the manufacturer's web site, any other updates for programs and device utilities available, install KB937287 then turn Automatic updates ON and allow windows to install needed updates by itself.

Here is what I want:

I do fresh installs of 7 often, including service pack 1.

As everyone knows, when you try to run "windows update" after that, it takes many hours to search and find them.

Now let's assume I did the update search, and a big list of updates is now ready. What I want to know is:

a. where are these files?
b. can i save them to a CD and install the updates later from the CD? for example, when i do another fresh install of windows 7.
c. if this is possible, i presume i would just copy the files but then also the question of how to run them from the CD.


Please, I do not need advice about "just do the regular way, risky" etc. I just want to know the above.

Thanks in advance!

A:Help: I want to save any found "updates" to a CD, to install later

The files are in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download. However, I don't know for sure if Windows Update would acknowledge them if they are copied there manually from a backup. I've never heard of anyone using this method.

These days, I think most people use a tool like WSUS Offline Update to get avoid updating through Windows Update. There are also other options, such as integrating updates directly into the install image (slipstreaming). I've recently been experimenting with an old but rarely used method of creating a hardware independent installable image from an installed system after updating through Windows Update.

The thing is, any method other than using Windows Update may involve a lot of research and trial and error. It may end up taking more time than just biting the bullet and sticking with Windows Update. Just FYI.

A:How to fix "not responding" problem in all programs and "lost updates"

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

That temp file that you mentioned, is it in the root of the system drive?
In other words is it located here: C:\1ee10074....

If that is where it is, then it could be from a .NET update. They do not always remove that randomly named folder. Don't delete it just yet, go inside of it (say continue to the permissions security pop ups). If you find several folders with 4 numbers for the name, then it is probably from an update. Those numbered folders are for different languages. You can delete the folder if you want or just leave it. The folder is not the cause of your problems.

Also, does the Haali Media Splitter work? It doesn't seem to work at all in Vista x64.

Thanks for any help!

A:Vista x64: Can I install ffdshow (x64) or do I need "Vista Codec Components" too?

Well, a Codec is something that you install to use a certain type of video file, such as a codec is needed to play DVD's on your computer. I would try installing it, and see if it works then.

Haali seems to be a virus from what i know about it. Stay away from that...

A:Flash drive's "active" light doesn't turn off in Vista when "safely removed"

have done a litte research and testing in my lab on several machines and have confirmd the problem. What it seems to indicate to me is that, in Vista, the light simply indicates power, not data transfer. Whenever I am transferring data, the light blinks.

While I have never actually tested it, I do not belive that the "safely remove" feature actually kills all power to the USB port in XP. If that is the case, then there is really no danger as long as vista has acknowledged the disconnect and knows not to try to write data to the drive.

Hi there,
Can someone please help to shed some light on this, or possibly fix this issue?
I've been trying for ages to get my parents computer to download and install updates.
It's running 7 Home Premium 64 bit with SP1.
The Windows Update page shows that Windows could not search for updates, which resulted in the error 8007370B
The link on that page to get help for this error has no results.
The system update readiness tool failed to fix the issue
sfc /scannow in an elevated command prompt results in the error message
Windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation.
I also tried to force WSUS offline updates, but ended up having to remove the temp admin account and cancel the updates when that failed.

Download the driver EXE file & save to desktop. RIGHT-click on desktop EXE icon, select "Run as Administrator"

That might do it, but COMODO either is or will be a problem. It's firewall does not play nice with Vista and causes system services to crash. All 3rd party firewalls have this problem if not completely configured properly for NETBIOS ports in particular. If 1st suggestion does not work - remove comodo.

as far as i understood you entered the Key that came with Windows 7 DVD, if so then she should go back to the store, cuz the key is wrong and ask for at least trying to install it infront of her. and for running windows 7 smoothly you need at least 2GB ram, Core 2 Duo processor with 2GH frequency and 3 MB L2 Cach, in this case it will run smoothly.
Now a starting fix will be: Check if the processor is compatible with x64, also when is the message appearing after doing what?
cuz i don't know what to say until i know where the message starts appearing

Problem is that this update won't install and every time I go to shut the computer down, I have to scroll through closing choices (shut down, hibernate, sleep, etc) and as whether or not I want the update installed.

Hi, is there an existing technique that can make me install Windows Photo Gallery, not the one with the Windows Live Essentials thing???? I am using Windows 7.

I installed Windows Live Photo Gallery and Windows Live Movie Maker many months ago but I am more satisfied with Windows Movie Maker 2.6 and the Windows Photo Gallery that came with Vista. I hate the Windows Live thing cause it also comes with stuff like Windows Skydrive Upload Tool and Windows Sign in Assistant.
Windows Live Photo Gallery is more laggish than Vista's Windows Photo Gallery. And I don't even like how Windows Live Movie Maker works and looks.

So please, is there some way I can install Windows Photo Gallery on Windows 7 without Windows Live Essentials??? Thanks...

A:Install Vista "Windows Photo Gallery" ?

Hi Vertex,

As you've stated, Windows Photo Gallery came bundled with Windows Vista. There's no place to download it as a standalone program. You might be able to copy the .exe and appropriate files from a Windows Vista computer, but there's no guarantee it'll work in Windows 7.

Cheers,

I recently acquired a Dell XPS 410 . It came complete with monitor, keyboard, mouse and all connectors.  I fired it up with no problems but a message came up informing me that it was necessary register with Microsoft. I entered the product key and a message came up that essentially said that this Vista pro was not an official product.  Another problem  is that the Hard drive had been reformatted.
I followed the instructions to purchase another key. While Microsoft was mulling this over I was able to connect to Firefox and peruse the internet.  After waiting for at least 20 minutes for Microsoft to answer the unit shut down.
I would like to keep the PC and install Win 10. But Is it possible?

A:Dell XPS 410 with "unofficial Microsoft Vista Pro OS". is it possible to install Win 10?

Windows Vista reaches End of Extended Support in 5 months. There is no point in installing Windows Vista now. It is possible to install Windows 10 on that system but the cost of the full retail license may be more than the hardware is worth.

There is a folder named "Important" in my folders and I'm not sure if I made it or they did, but it will not delete and it copies every single email I get. Why do I need duplicates of all my mail?

It's a pain because now I have to empty deleted, junk, inbox, and sent mail and this one.

I have managed to get my easy 2 boot usb working with the Vista ISO and I am currently installing as we speak. It just needed de-fragging. Feel so silly. But the original problem remains.

The former results in an "unknown error"; the latter results in a window saying that "the specified service does not exist as an installed service" almost immediately after trying. A similar message has come up occasionally in recent days when trying to install a couple of other programs.

I'm currently out of ideas and would appreciate any help. Thanks!

The upgrade process will always be longer, and sometimes considerably. The upgrade process has to move/relocate previous files and keep certain registry entries based on software already installed. Did the upgrade eventually complete? (it's a silly question but you could be dual booting). If not then it could be a bad burn and your systems is taking it's time trying to read the install files from the DVD.

I've got 4 SATA hard drives which all worked properly before I installed Vista 64. I now have 3 that Vista recognizes. The missing drive is a 320G WD SATA 3.0 drive. The "missing" drive shows up in the BIOS and is listed under the device manager. The device manager says the disk is working, and when I tried to update the driver I got a message that the drive was already up to date. The disk does not show up under disk management. The data on the disk is extremely important to me so a reformat without saving the data is out of the question. Any ideas on getting Vista to play nice with my 4th HD?

Thanks in advance!

The disk shows as disk 0, a dynamic disk and is inactive. I tried to convert to basic disk and it said I'd lose my data so I canceled.

Hard drive tests passed and memory tests passed, just does not boot. Since I got the nib Vista I'd rather go with a brand new "clean install" rather than get a replacement disk from hp, it might still not work, and god only knows what might be on that drive; all the needed drivers for the machine can still be downloaded from the hp website. Now, the last install of Windows I did was back in 98 and I'd be a novice when it comes to installing Vista. Any suggestions and comments would be appreciated.

Anyway, if I manually format the partition as NTFS (with gparted) the install fails saying "cannot copy files." I suppose the drivers could be bad, but the same ones work for XP and say they also support Vista. Vista recognizes the driver (as unsigned) and sees the HD with it (obviously).

A:need help x64 vista hp to x64 W7 pro WITHOUT "clean install"

Why would you pay again for the same OS? You own it for life to move to any computer or reinstall as often as you like with the Product Key you received. It does not expire or decide it doesn't like you.

What back-up disk is this you are trying to use? If it's the Apps and Drivers for your HP model then they are also available on the HP SUpport Downloads webpage for your model. Reimporting the bloatware and useless HP apps that have better versions built into Win7 can defeat the purpose of a clean install. The Win7 installer is mostly driver-complete, with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates.

I would boot the Win7 installation DVD, use the Custom install Drive Options to delete all partitions and reinstall adapting these tips to get a perfect install: Reinstalling Windows 7

I am putting together a small server and plan on getting this ASUSMB. It takes PC2 6400 memory.

However, there are only two DDR2 800 memory chips recommended on the ASUS website and they are 512meg chips.Here. I would rather use 1Gb, but I can live with the 512 issue.

I had planned on getting these chips.

Newegg does not carry either of the two listed by ASUS and I have never worried about this issue with other systems I have built, so I am probably going to proceed with the Kingston chips. I will be running XP with RAID hard drives.

I do a lot of offline updating from my own store. Many of the updates prepare for installation by "searching for updates to this computer". I suppose this is to examine the need for and suitability of the update. The first update searches pretty quickly, but then it's very slow - something like 5 to 10 minutes for each one. I think rebooting after each update would solve the problem, but that's not practical.

I encounter this on every Win7 machine I work on. Why do these updates take so much time scanning, and what can be done about it?

A:Offline updates spend enormous time "searching for updates on this..."

Rather than doing offline updating, why not set up a WSUS server, and point the clients at that for their updates? this has the benefit of automatic collection to the store, and controlled distribution to the clients, as well.

When I run the install Windows updates, the updates do not install, and I receive the following message (not verbatim, but close):

My office just upgraded and I can no longer use Windows XP On this system I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain I had them installed in opposite vertical margins and they "Launchpads", to "Toolbars" for "Docks" (MSese "TASKBARS" NOT add Need were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin and BAM Sorry for the cliche but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up and I just don't think I Need to add "TASKBARS" (MSese for "Launchpads", "Docks" NOT "Toolbars" can be as efficient without anything comparable Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows GUI and it's making me sick with rage I see only the option to put a quot toolbar quot on an existing quot taskbar quot and no option to create any additional taskbars This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient much less cool about this at all I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues but I see none such in W I have tried every google search string that I can think of and found no answer that deals with anything other than adding that stupid toolbar to the only taskbar that Microsoft will allow you in W So If I'm wrong and have missed some options how do I access them Otherwise I'm hoping there are developers who know what I am talking about and have software to enable the creation of separate taskbars launchpads Can anybody help with either

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!
