I found and installed v6.10.01 which was the only one I could find,and searched on the three sites and after prolonged search insisted on upgrading to 7.04.01 which I had before.

I also tried 1016.001 in case. No good. but a brief note came up:
NT Service Registry Error

Aha! Problem solved

Asus confirmed that there may be a flaw in 7.04.01 and suggested 6.01.02 which I installed from their url.

But I found that the uninstallation of 7.04.01 did not remove the desktop icon which when I ran it created an error "Unable to load BIOS.INFO.dll"

Searched and deleted any reference to Asus update as well as the icon and re-installed 6.01.02

Tried updating from their sites, but a call to update the updater was always first.

So downloaded, unzipped and filed 1016.001

Updated sucessfully from this file

Inforned Asus they have a flaw in 7.04.01 for my particualr setup.

The url for 6.01.02

http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...sUpdt61002.zip

might be useful for others.
