The main cause of any antivirus being at risk is when it has not been updated either for virus definitions or for program updates.

Check that your antivirus is up to date and that there are no updates for the main program itself.

When i am about to update my anti virus i can update, it asks me to reboot my computer

A lot of antivirus software will regularly push out software updates. These typically will require and tell they need a reboot to finish the update. Also if you leave your computer on and on auto update it may of installed a update and is pending a reboot. This would then always ask you to reboot if you mash the update button.
If this doesn't answer your question comment back with the Antivirus and version (This is under the "About" or "Help"

My game says that my windows 7 is incompatible and needs a do i get this,please.

Hello hushheath, to get the 'Patch' that you need, the best way is to "Update" the OS, a patch is basically an update! First, depending on the 'game,' there are also 'patches' for the game that may be 'missing' aswell; so you may need to "Update the Game Software, by going to the Manufacturer on-line. Hopefully, once you "install" the patches, the "Game" will (automatically) search for updates. Now, what you need to do is "Update Windows7." Next, make sure that the "Game" is installed, before you do the search, this way the 'Software' will be identified, and hopefully the patches will be installed. Follow these instructions: 1. Click on the "Start Button," paul7of9_16.jpg 2. Next, click on the "All Programs" [arrow], scroll to find; "Windows Updates," click on it to 'open' the next window. paul7of9_17.jpg select the "Check for updates" in the [right-side] "Tasks" area, as shown in the picture. paul7of9_19.jpg 3. The search may take awhile; once it finish the 'search' you will be "notified" with a message, and instructed topaul7of9_18.jpg "Install all "new updates". 4. Click on the install "Updates." 5. Once the task is complete, "Restart the Computer;" this way all the Patches and Drivers will find the "new" Software. 6. Thats it! "I hope this fix the problem, and 'enjoy' the game, paul7of9

How to update antivirus?

Your antivirus has an update feature. If there is no clear way to update, use the help menu of you antivirus to see how to do so. You connect to the Internet and hit update.
If you have non-free AV software, your license must still be valid to be able to update virus definitions.
Hope it helps.

Windows updates

What you should do, is simply reset the auto update program. Basically, turn all automatic updating off and then reboot the computer. After that, reactivate the updater and see if it works correctly. If it still will not work correctly; I'd go about updating with the online updater.

Using that url, you should be able to access the online update system. It all depends on what version of windows you're using.

Now, if you're running windows Vista; there have been a LOT of updates recently. Such as daily windows defender updates, security patches, and yes, quite a bit of performance patches. It could be that you're just seeing the same names on some updates.

Also, if you switch it to notify you but don't download you can manually download and install each update at a time. This could help you find a possible fix if microsoft has already fixed that problem.
