Keep getting "hprb Update" window on screen. Have changed "hprb Update" on Norton Security from "custm" to "allow", but problem still exists.

    well..this is not a problem..the longer the updates are delayed in being installed, the more likely for your operating system to go haywire..

Click START-RUN- in the dialog box type: msconfig in the box
when it opens select the "startup" tab - uncheck the box next to the hp update entry - click APPLY and OK...
Restart the computer, it will tell you "you've used the system configurator to change the way windows starts" click ..dont show me this again an then OK.
This will keep the update program from running when windows starts, but you can still run it from your printer software.

My Acer Aspire desktop computer, which was working just fine before Christmas, has slowed to a crawl and everytime I open a window it stops responding. Refer to the details below and thank you in adva


Andrew, have you followed the information provided by Microsoft for Vista and using Startup Repair?

Have you tried doing a System Restore to put the system back to when it was last working fine - this should help if the problem is caused by a bad Windows Update fix or similar system change?

How much memory do you have on your Acer Aspire computer - Vista needs at least 2GB to run reasonably well, more if available subject to the limit of 3.5GB for 32bit operating systems.

Even though you are running Norton 360 security software - it is still possible that you may have a virus infection - all security software is only as good as the decisions made by the computer user - click on a 'bad' link on a web page and answer a security message wrongly and all bets are off!

Download and burn a copy of the free AVG Rescue CD and boot your computer from this to check that you have no virus infection(s).

What is the performance like when started in Safe Mode? If it is back to how you expect, then again it suggests that something recently installed has changed things - try disabling any Startup programs - you can use the free CCleaner utility from Piriform to help you do this by going to the Tools page then selecting Startup which will show a list of what programs are being started each boot - you can disable any of these by using the Disable button or with the mouse on the entry.

Lost all connection with internet


Looks to me the EASIEST thing to do would be to use SYSTEM RESTORE function for windows and go back at least one day before you installed the update. That should lick this problem.

You may also try to disable Norton and see what is does for you internet connection. Uninstalling Norton is not out of the question, but you may have to get the NORTON REMOVAL TOOL to completely get rid of Norton.

Hope it helps!

Unable to open live TV in HP PC Media Center


Look at the alerts in the security and firewall of Norton antivirus. It might be blocking it. also keep an eye on your bottom right corner when you attempt the live TV. Norton may be alerting you about the blocks in that area. Make sure you allow those connections. I would check Norton firewall and security before messing with the Windows firewall.

"C:\Program Files\Norton AntiVirus\Engine\16.1.0.33\uiStub.exe" will not open or run. Was working approx 5 days ago


It looks like Norton may have some security issues with Vista, where it tries to run files with insufficient security.

Try finding that file in your Windows Explorer window, right-click on it, run as Administrator.

If that works, and you trust Norton's products, right-click on the file again, Properties, Compatibility, Run as Administrator. That may cure the problem.

If I were you, I'd also find the Live Update executable/program, right click on that, run as administrator.

Cannot reinstall Norton Internet security because Live Update is running.


From the Start Menu select 'Run' (or press Window Key + R)

Type 'services.msc' (without the quotes) and hit Enter.

Scroll down the list until you find 'LiveUpdate'. Right-click and select 'stop'.

This will stop Live Update and will hopefully allow you to reinstall the software.
