My update got interrupted.
When I rebooted the software was missing components so I decided to reinstall
the only software I found on dell apparently was older then the version I had partially installed so I uninstalled it and then tried again.
But it still told me I had a newer version installed!!
So I searched and finally found what seemed the latest version.
However when I install it (twice now) it completely fails to install even though it looks like it was fine.
So I am hoping to find a proper installation once and for all.
Thanks in advance

Thank you for your comprehensive response.
I downloaded the software from the link you provided and when I tried to install it I got the following message"
"The existing software version installed in your computer is more comprehensive than this version. therefore, this version will not be installed."
Except that I have uninstalled the software by every means possible, even cleaning my registry afterwards and rebooting again.
What gives?? How can I correct this absurdity?
