WHS2011 “Computer Monitoring Error” on Dashboard or Launchpad" RRS feed

  • Question

  • A few weeks ago this error started.  At times it appears and then disappears.  It is supposedly a problem on a client laptop running Windows 7.

    The link which points to the help files is here:

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/7852.computer-monitoring-error-on-dashboard-or-launchpad.aspx?PageIndex=2

    After all this time this still seems to be a unresolved issue.  I am also not clear about how to perform the work around as to what is meant by BPA and where it would be found.  It is not apparent to me what BPA is the abbreviation for.

    Thanks

    Don Resor

    Workaround
    1.
    Uninstall BPA on the server
    2. Install BPA on the server again,  do NOT select the check box “Integrate Windows Server Solutions BPA scan results in the server console.” Be aware that you will not see  BPA scan results in the server console after this. You can still open BPA UI to see the result.

  • I checked both my list of installed updates and hidden updates.  Nowhere do I see KB2630434 or KB2630445.  Windows Update reports there are no new updates.  According to the link, I cannot download the updates directly.  It must be done through Windows Update.
