Do you know what the update is that fails? I guess the easiest way to see it is instead of using auto update, use Custom Update and see what needs to be installed.

I have also seen were some people have suggested this is caused by spy-ware on your system. Perhaps a in-depth scan would eliminate that possibility.
Personally I would not worry much about HP updates. The only time I would think of doing such updates is if I were having a problem with my system and an update directly addressed the issue. In fact I would go as far as to remove the HP updater.

Now Windows Updates are a different matter and should be done as they often cover security issues.

The HP Update program (bloatware, in my opinion) doesn't work with Vista very well, even though the system would have been bought with Vista pre-installed.Vista.

If you want to get rid of the HP Updates program, go to the Start menu and into the 'Control Panel'. Select "Programs & Features". The program is called 'HP Update'. You can Uninstall that program there if you like. You can manually check for updated hardware drivers by going to the HP site's Drivers and Downloads area, and entering your Desktop Model Number.

The HP Updates program also seems to have problems with various software/hardware firewalls, particularly when running Windows Vista, preventing it to search for and download optional driver updates for your HP computer.

HP says that hpsudelpacks.exe is a virus which affects mostly the automatic downloading of hp updates. go to their website and download the realtek audio driver manually to see if you can actually download updates to begin with. You should update any spyware or virus program if you have to and then shut down my computer and restart in safe mode. When in safe mode , run windows defender found here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/defender/default.mspx , then run avg virus program found here http://free.avg.com/download?prd=afe , then restart your computer, click on hp update in my start button area, and you should able to download another update.

Regards..

I can´t find a graphic driver for my compaq presario sr1610nx. I searched everywhere. I don´t know what else to do. My pc has a AMD Sempron processor. I have installed now windows 7. Please, help...


Windows 7 has an impressive driver database preloaded on it, but if it did not detect your video drivers, I recommend running a Microsoft Update. Make sure to include optional updates as this includes updates to hardware and non-Microsoft items which may need updating. It is important that you install everything that comes up, as updates prevent you from being at risk to potential threats on the internet and also ensures your PC is using the hardware to it's maximum ability with the most current drivers and software.
If this does not find your driver for you, you can go to the HP website, click on support and drivers, and then type in your model number and click Windows 7 when the OS choice comes up. This file they offer will automatically alert you when updates for your system are ready for Windows 7.

Good Luck,

Hp toatal care advisor states internet security at risk, but the fire wall and anti-virus that they are on.


hp total advisor is the software from HP which doesnt work like an antivirus,it is justt a way you can connect to hp for any hardware support.

no antivirus may have the same results,if one says the computer is safe ,the other would give you an error or security message, if you have norton or mcafee or any other antivirus ,update it and run a scan ,

also you may get your computer cleaned up for free by contacting one of the technician at
www.techbuddies.org they provide free tech-support for no charge,amazing but its true.

HP site said load XP SP3 upgrade Utility for system with AMD Processors. When I load this Utility and check for It is showing message Your system does not meet minimum requirements for this update. Update...


This means that microsoft has deemed your computer as not having the system requirements for the service pack.
Could be something as simple as you haven't installed service pack 1 ans 2 yet..
I would use windows update on your start menu, take all the recommended updates, generally once the updates required for service pack 3 are installed , then the next time you run windows update it will look for the next set of updates. sometimes it takes 2 or 3 update sessions to get the one you want if you havent updated your computer in some time..

Unable to run HPTotal Care Advisor


So, first you need:

Either -
HP Help and Support for Microsoft Vista (32-bit Editions): here

or

HP Help and Support for Microsoft Vista (64-bit Editions): here

And you'll need:

HP Active Support Library: here

However, I cannot find the HP Total Care Advisor anywhere.

Try Add/Remove Programs and click on the Total Care to see if there is a 'repair' option.
