The two issues could be related. The good news is that most updates are transient updates - you miss the one for today, you get a new one tomorrow. So even if your update didn't properly install you shouldn't worry too much. The next one will bring you up to date.
The reason for the AppCrash is down to a 0xC5 problem, which is an illegal memory access. Sometimes this indicates a lack of memory to process the task, so how much installed memory have you got?
I moved this to SecurityCenter as I think that's a better spot for it. I'm not sure what the problem was but can only assume the update servers were unreachable at that time.
If the software is showing green and the MVT says all is well then I would ignore it.
If not, probably best to contact Technical Support, free by phone or online chat. Link below.
Edit: oops, 2 of us at once, well hopefully one or the other will sort it out.

Thank you to the both of you.
I have 3 gigs of ram.
So it's not an issue to do with insufficient memory, although paging may be part of it. It could then be a programming issue, although faulty RAM can't be ruled out (memtest should tell you if there's a problem there). Are you on a 32-bit or 64-bit system?
I am on a 32 bit system. I am sorry for not mentioning this kind of information in the beginning.
The 0xC5 error occurs quite often on 32-bit systems, which is why I asked. It has many causes and is rarely a serious problem (it happens once only, and that's it). If you keep seeing it then a programming error is the most likely cause. I note these things when they happen to me but I've not yet seen persistent or repetitious behaviour so I'm not overly worried (yet).
Thank you for everything once again.
