Running System Update

2008-04-06, 18:32 PM
I have downloaded System Update 313-2008-3-13 onto my T43 but I cannot run it as it has downloaded as systemupdate313-2008-3-13.exe-3895cd31.pf and I can't open this file to run and hence update my system.  Any help would be gratefully appreciated as I have 5 of these machines to get up and running.  On one of machines I cannot install the system update even though I have installed all the necessary windows updates.
thanks,  Jane

I would suggest that you try downloading the file again to a location you will remember, such as your Desktop or a folder such as C:\TEMP\ and then run the program from there.  If it still saves with a .PF extension, try renaming the file to an .EXE extension and then running it.
