There should be a place to disable it. For Windows updates in XP, go to control panel, Automatic updates, and turn it off there. It can also be disabled in IE. For HP updates, there has to be an icon on the taskbar (I would think), or perhaps under "Programs" you'll find an HP support program that will allow you to disable updates. Personally, I would not disable most updates. I can agree... I hate the IE add-ons and taskbars that just take up space. Give me simple... cut the glitz and hype. However, the security updates are important. I would select a time to update when I am not using the computer. For a browser, I prefer Google Chrome. It is simple, but very flexible... thinks more like me. If Windows is user friendly, I am NOT a user! I hope this helps.

Checking for updates results in an error message (0x8024001D)


Running windows update, Express or Custom it does not matter, when checking for updates an error message (0x8024001D) saying “the page can not be displayed” occurs.

Rename the SoftwareDistribution folder:
Stop the Automatic Updates Service
Go to Start>Run and type in: services.msc
Click on OK or hit ENTER
In the right-hand pane of the Services window, right-click on Automatic Updates and then select Stop

Now, navigate to C:\Windows (C:\WINNT, if using Windows 2000) folder, locate and rename the SoftwareDistribution folder to SDOLD

Restart the Automatic Updates Service by re-opening the Services window,

right-click on Automatic Updates and then select Start.

Please note that a "side effect" of renaming (or deleting) the SoftwareDistribution folder is that you will lose your current Update
History listing.

What is an ArcCon ac application error0xc00000006?


What you describe falls under the general category of svchost.exe issues. Svchost.exe is used by your computer to access the registry and check the services to load during system startup.

arccon.ac is an ArcSoft Connect Notifier. There are two possibilities why its happening:
  1. Microsoft releases regular security updates that are installed automatically on your computer by the Automatic Updates feature, which is enabled by default on your computer. The Svchost.exe Application error usually appears due to a problem with a recent update.
Closing the error message might freeze your computer. To fix this error, perform the following tasks.
  1. Open Control Panel, select Performance and Maintenance, and then select Services.
  2. In the System Properties dialog box, open the Automatic Updates tab.
  3. Next, select the Turn Off Automatic Updates option.
  4. Select Apply and then OK to accept your changes and exit the System Properties dialog box.
  5. Restart your PC.
  6. Ensure that you are connected to the Internet and then select the Windows Update command from Start > All Programs to manually update Windows.
  7. After the update is complete, enable the automatic updates again from System Properties > Automatic Updates.
This should rectify your application error. However, if the error keeps reappearing, then you might turn off automatic updates permanently and manually perform Windows updates at regular intervals.

Errors Caused By Virus Infection
Let's hope that this isn't the case. Lengthy procedure but if you are still having trouble, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
