    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.

The platform is failing WGA. This KB has information about WGA and potentially resolving the issue

If the laptop has a valid key associated with it, it's usually on a sticker on the hardware somewhere.
If there isn't a valid license associated, then the only legal way to get rid of the message is to buy a valid license.

Windows 7 Updates Running TOO SLOW, or just plain "hanging up / freezing"??


Anyone out there in "Windows7ville" experiencing those DREADED slooooowww updates, or is it seeming to hang / freeze without actually downloading and installing your security updates??

I struggled with this exact same issue regarding Windows 7 Updates.. (SLOOOW download times, Win7 Update basically "hanging" at the "searching for updates" portion of the install procedure), you name it! Fortunately, I got fed-UP with these problems and "dug down deep" in researching for a "fool-proof" solution!

This issue apparently stems from the fact that Microsoft in all their "wisdom" decided to change how their update servers "hand out" their updates to computers requesting Windows 7-related updates, after Windows 8/8.1 was released.

Here's the fix(es) which worked for me:

First, we need to find out what version of Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit) we have:

Click the Start button. Right-click "Computer", and then left-click "Properties" from the resulting pop-up menu. This will bring up a new window showing what version of Windows 7 you have, what type of CPU, how much system RAM, and most importantly if it is 32 or 64-bit.

(For this solution, I'm assuming that one has the 64 bit version of Windows 7. If you have 32 bit, then at any time during this process you see a different choice to download the 32 bit version of an update, please do so. Also, you MUST have Service Pack 1 installed on Windows 7 for this guide to be successful. If you don't have it installed yet, please download the full installer and run it before continuing: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842

Make SURE you restart once SP1 has finished installing!)

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

First, click the "start button" (Lower-left corner of your screen.. looks like the windows logo in a "bubble"). In the search blank at the bottom of the "start menu", type in "cmd". When it shows the result, right-click it, and then left-click "Run as Administrator". Keep this window open, but shrunk-down and off to the side a bit, as you'll need to run a command a couple times during this process.

1.) Type in (or copy and paste this) into the command prompt:

net stop wuauserv

Press "enter" / "return". This will completely stop the background Windows Update service, preventing it from interrupting our repairs / updates to Windows Update.

2.) Download and run (I recommend Google Chrome or FireFox browser -- steer clear of using Internet Explorer, as it's FULL of non-fixable security flaws!!):

https://support.microsoft.com/kb/3138612

This will ask you if you're sure you'd like to run this. Just keep saying "yes" or "ok".. (basically give it a positive response until it finishes). When it's done, restart your PC.

3.) Once your PC has fully restarted and you're back at your desktop screen, (you can see your wallpaper and all your "usual" desktop icons), REPEAT STEP 1... Then go back onto the web. Download and run:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3102810

Once again, give it "positive responses" if it asks if you're sure you want to install this update package... Restart your PC once more after it's done.

Now, If you'd like to get all the most needed and necessary security updates done and over-with in "one fell swoop", then download and install the "Windows 7 Convenience Update", which will get your PC up-to-speed and up-to-date with security fixes MUCH more quickly!!

(Again, please repeat Step 1 before continuing!)

First, we'll need to run a quick "service stack update" on the updater service. Download and Run:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020369

On the service stack update page, remember to pick from the first two choices, based on if you have 64 bit or 32 bit.

Restart your PC once it's finished!

Repeat Step 1.

Now, onto the "Convenience Update"

Download and Run:

For 64 Bit:
http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/updt/2016/05/windows6.1-kb3125574-v4-x64_2dafb1d203c8964239af3048b5dd4b1264cd93b9.msu

For 32 Bit:
http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/software/updt/2016/05/windows6.1-kb3125574-v4-x86_ba1ff5537312561795cc04db0b02fbb0a74b2cbd.msu

As "always", restart your PC once the update finishes!

I hope this helped someone! Please let me know if it did, and have a truly excellent day!

NORTON INTERNET SECURITY 2011 just installed from CD. All seems ok but... When I switch on the computer I get the speech bubble saying "automatic updates is turned off. Click here to fix the problem....


Hi,

I think you are confusing the Windows Update with the Norton Automatic update.

Please open your Norton product and see if the status is at "Secure" on the top of the program.
If it is secure with a green mark, you need not worry.

If it shows at "Risk", do the following steps:
Check if the Windows update is turned on or off.
Check if the computer's date and time is running correctly
If the problem still persist, reinstalling the Norton program will definitely fix the issue

To reinstall we need to first download the setup file from the link www.norton.com/nis11, which will download the latest version of Norton Internet Security.

Double click the downloaded file and that will remove the existing version and install the latest version.

Muhaim

"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.
