Cyndi,

I am making the *assumption* that the two PC's are Win 95 based.

The update probably occurred because the CA/400 Update Function is
automatically running when the PC is booted up for the first time after a
PTF CUME has been applied on the AS/400.  If you want to control when a PC
is updated with a CA/400 service pack, remove the Update function from the
Win 95 startup folder.  You then control when the updates occur.

How are CA/400 PTF's being installed on PC's?

If you are loading PTF's via service packs retrieved from IBM via the
Internet, you should remove the CA/400 Update from the Win 95 Startup
folder.  This will prevent AS/400 updates from occurring on the first
connect after a PTF CUME has been loaded.

If you are updating from the AS/400, you should do the same.  I have no
dependency on the AS/400 for CA/400 service packs.  I get them via the
Internet and keep them on an NT server.  Once I have tested the service
pack, I move it to a directory that can be accessed.  I also have the auto
update function removed from the Win 95 Start up folder.

You should be able to back out a service pack via the uninstall.  Just make
sure that you have access to the earlier CA/400 service pack.

HTH....

Mike Shaw
