I have automatic updates set to download and allow me to install. has stopped working 4 or 5 months ago. Now auto installs updates when I turn off windows. Impossible to control as I used to.

something changed with my automatic update process.  I have win XP pro, completely up-to-date.  I used the icon, do a right click Select custom, see what updates there and install them when I was ready.  no longer works like that.  Today, as yesterday for is, I see the icon it says XX % downloaded, the icon disappears and then it's as if I never had the update.  When I go to turn off windows he installs the updates received.  very inconvienent.  Any advice.  I checked my settings, always the same "download and draw attention to me..." "Thank you.

  • "Show my windows and tabs from last time ' has stopped working after software updated to the end of January or early February. Now on 12.0a2. Change options "Auora to start: ' no longer works.

    I use this feature for years and update Firefox/Aurora in the next few days, maybe a week, an update becomes available and everything suddenly ' show my windows and tabs from last time ' has stopped working. I can go to the Tools-Option-general tab and change "at Aurora startup:" to this option, or 'Show my home page (s)' and now the opening in a new tab single even though I have URLs there. This may mean that this bit is not read correctly. I'm not playing: config, but I watch a few spoken options in the Web and everything looked OK.

    I would uninstall and reinstall it if you think it will solve the problem. I updated Aurora again because this problem started and it remains broken. It is a system of XP with SP3

    PS: I have two other windows with a XP and the other Windows 7. When I had the problem on my primary XP System I stopped to make updates to other systems. Today I updated the two other systems with the latest Auora (skip one or two updates) and both work very well.

    The best way for me to trouble?

    Hey punchcard4rjw,

    Have you tried to start Firefox in Mode safe? Key 'shift' startup of Firefox. If it doesn't happen in Mode without failure, you should read the extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common troubleshooting Firefox problems.

    If this does not work, you should look the article How to fix preferences that will not save.

    Hope this helps!

The rest of the applications say they are absent from the other files like this; It seems that there is something to do during the installation that keeps this issue alive!

    Run the command to check the file system once:

    Hi Andy,.

    I checked the reported compatibility list, and the game is listed as compatible.  Work in 64-bit or 32-bit Windows 7?  I will try to reinstall the game, if you did an upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 recently.  If it is a new installation and does not, please visit the EA's Web site to get the latest patch for the game to see if that helps address your problem.  Let me know if you've done all that and you still have questions, and we can try something else.

    1. you remember to make changes to your computer before the problem?

    I suggest that you follow these steps and check if the problem persists.

    Step 1:

    Temporarily disable all security software and check if the problem persists.

    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Step 2:

    Test the issue in a clean boot State, and check if the problem persists.

    Note: Follow step 7 to your computer as usual.

    Step 3:

    If the problem occurred recently, I do System Restore to the point that your computer was working normally.

    Method 2:

     Also try to set up your computer in a clean boot state, and check if the same issue occurs.

    Note: After the boot minimum troubleshooting step, follow step 7 in the link provided to return the computer to a Normal startup mode.

    Method 3:

    The deleted files on laptop for free space, must have deleted something important, like the printer does not work well.

    Tried to uninstall the software and then remove device.   Inserted the CD, then reinstalled.  I can print with USB cable.

    Print and scan doctor 4.9 ceases to work, so have difficulties to find what the problem is.   Any suggestions?

    Thank you. This was my first post to a forum and I am glad for a quick response.

    I ended up uninstalling programs printer, restart, then deleted the printer device, restart, then goes on HP site and download software and implementation.

    Always impossible to use printing and scanning doctor. Same message as it closes. Hope that I won't need it. Don't know what the problem is with the diagnosis. Will retain the option of restoration in mind.

    I can print with USB and wireless, so I guess I'm ok now.

  • which is updated when you turn off your computer

    I got a problem with the connection to the internet and also using IE9 when I could. I solved my problem of the internet first by disabling my FIOS router wireless can will turn off PC and when starting, I first turn on my computer desktop and then put on my FIOS wireless router after waiting for about 20 seconds.  IE9 still has problems of since I installed Firefox and it works fine. When I had problems with getting Internet from my office, I was able to access the internet through my laptop using the same wireless router FIOS. I know that I was going through the FIOS wireless router because I could see the correct SSID number. So my question is what happens when off their workstation (which is updated). My desktop is Windows Vista Home Premium and using a wireless router FIOS I know is not (FIOS router) at the origin of the problem.

    When you stop your desktop computer, how could anything updated? This is the stop.

  • Word 2003: Copy and paste, drag - d├⌐poser has stopped working

    I'm writing a book for school and have done a lot of editing.  Tonight, I chose to copy and paste the title of an article that I was referencing on the web (I use FF), which is something I do all the time without any problems.  Then, starting IN the word document, I pointed out a passage for cut and paste elsewhere.  Instead, he re-pasted article that I had taken place online - the title of this article.  So, I went to the Clipboard and deleted and tried to copy and paste (of my paper) again.  Still did not work.  I tried to drag and drop and that has not worked.  I checked and unchecked "allow drag and drop" in the field of the option and opening and closing, closed all browsers, etc., and so far, not only in this document, but in all word documents, I can't copy and paste or drag and drop.  Help!  And thanks in advance.  It is a BIG problem, as I'm working on a thesis.
