Windows never ceases to amaze...

I think I keep my machines pretty well up to date. I'm fixing up my girlfriend's computer right now, and I finally got all the updates applied except apparently one got missed. Okay, simple enough right?

Step #1: Install .NET Framework 1.0, click "Check for updates" - what? there's another update?

Step #2: Install .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1, click "Check for updates" - what? ANOTHER one?

Step #3: Install .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 security update, click "Check for updates" ...

Really? Why couldn't we have a pre-packaged full install? Why do I have to run this "check for updates" over and over (and why does it take so goddamn long nowadays?)

Okay, looks like that really was the last update and this machine is now 100% up to date. At least for the moment...
