Windows Update

Anyone knows how to do that?

I'm having a bad time.  No, I'm having fun.  But I really do want to upgrade—because of this.

When I boot the Windows machine, it asks me in a hateful baloon: “updates are ready for your computer / click here to download them”.  OK, I click there.  I wait.  Then it says (of course, in a baloon) “updates are ready for your computer / click here to install them”.  I click there.  I chose default (“typical”) setup.  I wait.  I'm being asked if I want to reboot.  I click reboot.  The machine shuts down, and comes back up.  I login.  I get the usual (I fucking hate it!!) baloon: “updates are ready for your computer / click here to download them”.  OK, I click there.  I wait.  Then it says (again, in a baloon) “updates are ready for your computer / click here to install them”.  I click there.  I chose default (“typical”) setup.  I wait.  I'm being asked if I want to reboot.  I click reboot.  The machine shuts down, and comes back up.  I login.  I get the usual (fuck!) baloon: “updates are ready for your computer / click here to download them”.  OK, I click there.  I wait.  Then it says (guess where..) “updates are ready for your computer / click here to install them”.  I click there.  I chose typical setup.  I wait.  I'm being asked if I want to reboot.  I click reboot.  The machine shuts down, and comes back up.  I login.  I get the usual (fuuuu-hu-hu-huuuck) baloon: “updates are ready for your computer / click here to download them”.  OK, I click there.  I wait.  Then it says (grrrrr) “updates are ready for your computer / click here to install them”.  I click there.  I chose default setup.  I wait.  I'm being asked if I want to reboot.  I click reboot.  The machine shuts down, and comes back up.

After several useless reboots, I get something weird.  The Logitech Update Manager.  Because one Update Manager is never enough.

Boy it looks so ugly!  This is definitely the last Logitech product I ever buy.  First off because the last Logitech Mouse I bought sucks (despite its incredibly huge price), and secondly—but more important—because they can't write software for Windows, let alone Linux and derivatives.  Yes they don't have a Mac OS-X driver for this shitty camera—because, after all, this camera sucks—so it doesn't even deserve a driver for OS-X.  Yes they suck.  (Microsoft sucks too, but they do produce great mice.)

After a few more clicks, I get this:

I have friends that use Windows.  How can they?  Is there any black magic I could do so I can use Windows without going mad?

Thanks guys.  I'm happy with my Linux box.
