  • If you are being told by OneCare that you are missing Windows Updates, go to Windows Update and check for updates and install them. If that is failing, your problem is not with OneCare, but with Windows Update. OneCare simply advises you that they are missing. If, however, you visit Windows Update and there are none offered, then OneCare may need to have the database repaired.

    You can contact OneCare support for help:

    If there are no missing Windows Updates, save the database repair tool to the PC and right click, select run as administrator. I assume that you are using Vista.

    If updates are failing, don't reset the database, but seek help with getting the missing updates.
