Why it is hard for me to view a file from the net.... the note from my pc is: this copy of windows did not pass genuine windows validation.. what should i do? my unit is hp pavilion dv1000

You need to turn off Windows updates. For this go to the Control Panel--->Windows Updates and select Turn off windows updates. If the problem still there, take the backup of your documents and desktop in a mass storage or another drive of your computer and install a new copy of Windows and after finishing installation of Windows first turn off Windows Updates.

My dell inspirion 530S is continuously configuring updates.

There are a couple of things you can try. Firstly go to start and run and type services.msc and a box will appear. In here look for Automatic Updated and right click and chose Stop.

Also you could go into control panel (start -> settings -> control panel) and double click automatic updates and select turn off.

The first method may restart when you next restart the computer but if you have turned them off with the second method this should be ok.

Let me know how you get on and please rate my response.

Thank you

1 Answer

The control panel has no security center in it.

I guess you have turned off the security center in the system.
Not to worry. You can get it back by performing these simple steps:
Click Start.
In that, select Run.
Type Services.
Click on Ok.
Now you get a services dialog box.
Scroll down to the Security Center option
Check the status. It must have been turned off.
Double click on Security center. A dialog box will open up.
You will have 4 tabs namely General, Logon, Recovery, Dependencies.
Choose General
Choose Startup Type, and change it to Automatic.
Change the Service Status to Start.
Apply .
Now go back to control panel. You will see the Security Center Option.

Good luck !!!
