Install Missing updates....EVERY 10 MINUTES!!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    This is a really annoying feature of this program. Every time I restart my computer from Sleep mode, and often without provocation, Live OneCare "goes yellow" and tells me to go the Microsofts Website and install missing updates. So, I dutifully go to Microsoft and find that I have no missing updates.

     

    Is there any way I can boost the IQ of my Live One care so that it will stop being chronically misinformed???

     

    IT also just occasionally tells me I need a backup, sometimes the same day or the day after I have done a backup.

     

    It also occasionally just stops responding.

     

    Any way I can reclaim the functionality I had with VERSION ONE????

     

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am running Windows Vista Ultimate, I have already reinstalled Onecare a couple of times.

  • Same thing. I bought and installed LOC today. Everytime I reboot, orange icon directing me to updates site only to be told; You here again? We told you ten minutes ago that there were no new updates so stop asking! Ok so I'm  going a little loopy over this. C'on Microsoft, I decided to trust you on this instead of re-uping my Norton subscription!!! Also, this is an XP machine. (HP Pavilion a720n)

  • According to my update log, everythings fine. Here's the bottom part. I took it up to the last "Self Update is Not required"...which was yesterday. Even though I have Windows Update set up to check weekly, I note that the next "detection timeout" is set for today. My LOC icon is a nice bright orange this morning....I'm not even going to bother opening it.

     

    I ran Belarc Advisor and it found some old security updates from mid 2007 that were not installed, but I ran Microsoft update to "show hidden updates" and nothing was there and I also re-ran the scan for updates and it tells me that I am up to date....just like it does every time LOC makes me check it. I am not going to manually install these old updates as I suspect they have already been replaced by newer cumulative updates and I don't want to bring my computer to it's knees with unnecessary updates.

     

    Another bug in the program??? What is LOC checking that I seem to be missing?

     

    I'm glad they don't run my home alarm....the police and fire department would be at my house constantly!!!

     

    In any event, here's the log info:

  • can you tell what KB is being installed?

     

    Sunday, February 10, 2008 2:34 PM
  • Perhaps I'm not making myself clear...there is NO KB BEING INSTALLED!! Windows live one care is telling me that I need to install something when I DON'T NEED TO INSTALL ANYTHING!!! I have No Missing updates. I have no failed updates. I have no dowloaded, uninstalled updates. Please take a look at the log file you asked for.

     

    Sunday, February 10, 2008 2:44 PM
  • Still we need to identify what triggers WOC to prompt you for update

     

    can you try this one

     

    1. Open Internet Explorer.
    2. Click Tools menu, and select Windows Update. It will open the Windows Update
    website automatically.
    3. Click Custom Install. It will begin to scan your computer and detect which
    Security Update is necessary for you to install.
    4. When the scan is finished, it will list all updates at the right pane.

    (can you tell me whats available for d/l)

     

     

    Sunday, February 10, 2008 4:04 PM
  • There is no "Custom Install" option on that page, so all I could do was to scan for updates...again. Once again, Windows tells me that I need no updates.

     

    Here's a link to the page telling me that I need no updates.

    Sunday, February 10, 2008 4:57 PM
  • you have 41 optional updates, Click on it and post what updates are available

     

    I apologize I thought your using WinXP

     

    Sunday, February 10, 2008 6:05 PM
  • If you insist. Nothing much of intererst here.

     

     

    <img src="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f3/jpmct/uninstalled.jpg">

     

     

    You seem to think that the program is trying to do something valid. I'm not so sure.

    Monday, February 11, 2008 1:02 AM
  • install the Update for Windows Vista

     

    Monday, February 11, 2008 1:14 PM
  • OK, it's installed. I now will not limit my Windows searches if I use a non-Gregorian Calendar.

     

    I suppose that will help me out if I ever become a Druid, or find out that my true heritage is Mayan, rather than Irish.

     

    Live One Care is now green. It may turn on me at any moment, so I will need to wait a day to see if this move has satisfied the program.

     

    dabzig, I certainly thank you for your persistent attention and help. If this move solves the problem, though, it does raise another question:

     

    Is Windows Live One Care going to force me to install every silly "optional" update that I don't really need. My impression was that it was supposed to keep you aware of "important" or "critical" updates. I really didn't feel the need to install this update as I am not an ancient Babylonian or a Muslim and therefore had no need to personally switch to a non-Gregorian calendar. Also, it has been on my update list since last summer and Windows Live One Care only noticed recently that I didn't have it.

     

    Perhaps the folks at Microsoft use a non-Gregorian Calendar. They are from Seattle, so I guess anything is possible.

     

    Thanks, again. I will repost if the icon goes yellow again.

  • JP, thanks for the laugh and thanks to Danzig for his help. OneCare should only warn you for critical and important updates that it finds missing when it checks the catalog of available updates, so I'll be interested to read if your status stays green or if there is another problem lurking.

  • Hmmm, Do you think they "Team Build" by getting together for a Non-Gregorian Chant????
