Windows automatic update notification.

I keep getting notifications for updates for programs I don't have or don't want to and cannot get rid of them. How do I clear the. Specifically for Explorer 8 and Office 2007, neither of which I have or want.

If you do not want to install an update via windows update, right-click the update, and click Hide update

The update you selected will be hidden, and windows appear yet again for this update notifications

hope this helps

  • Windows automatic updates to doubt?

    In windows 7, in windows updates, when we select "install updates automatically (recommended)" and then set the time when to install updates, to just install the updates then (downloads at any time seized in accordance with his will) or download them first at that time and then to install it?
    As my use of the internet is free from 02:00 to 08:00 and I want that windows should download the updates and install them automatically at 03:00 (it would cost my internet charges). If I put out there like "every day at 03:00" time, it will download at that time (which I want it to be), or simply install at the time (I don't want to use my day consumption for the updates of windows... I want to use the free part!).

    p.s. it restarts the computer automatically after installing updates (I don't want) or to delay the recovery until I wake up in the morning and do it myself (I want it)?

    If it does it automatically, is it possible to stop him?

    From: Understanding Windows automatic updating

    When the updates are downloaded?

    Updates are downloaded behind the scenes when you are online. They do not interfere with other downloads. If you disconnect from the Internet before an update is fully downloaded, the download process will continue the next time you're online.

    When the updates are installed?

    It depends on the automatic update option you choose. If you choose the recommended option, updates are installed at 3:00 or on a schedule you choose. If you turn off your computer before the scheduled time, you can install updates before shutting down. If your computer is in a State of economy of energy (sleep or Hibernate) during a scheduled update, and if your computer is connected to a power source, Windows will wake your computer long enough to install new updates. If your computer is running on battery, however, Windows will not install updates. Windows will try to install them instead at the next scheduled installation.

    Through the above information, it seems that Windows Update is download the updates when the system is online and install them during the scheduled installation.
    Updates need to reboot the system to replace files in use will be to reboot the system without any user interaction.

    As far as I know, when WU is set to automatic, there is no way to restrict the time when the system will download the updates.

    Hello Bigbrotherbrian,

    I think that thie problem is maybe due to one of the following reasons:

    1. You are not logged as administrator (or equivalent)

    2. Strategy of automatic updates is enabled

    3. Automatic updates (and Windows Update) access is blocked by group policy

    To solve problems, just follow the steps below:

    To do automatic updates options configurable by the user (only for stand-alone systems), remove restrictions 2 & 3 above.

    • Click Start, run and type REGEDIT to . EXE

    • Go to this location:


    • In the right pane, delete the two values AUOptions and NoAutoUpdate

    • Go to this location:


    • In the right pane, delete the value DisableWindowsUpdateAccess.

    Hope that this resolution should solve your problem.

    You can run disk - integrated into Windows XP - cleanup to erase everything except your last restore point and yet more 'free '... files cleaning

    How to use disk cleanup

    You can disable hibernation if it is enabled and you do not...

    When you Hibernate your computer, Windows saves the contents of the system memory in the hiberfil.sys file. As a result, the size of the hiberfil.sys file will always be equal to the amount of physical memory in your system. If you don't use the Hibernate feature and want to reclaim the space used by Windows for the hiberfil.sys file, perform the following steps:

    -Start the Control Panel Power Options applet (go to start, settings, Control Panel, and then click Power Options).
    -Select the Hibernate tab, uncheck "Activate the hibernation", and then click OK. Although you might think otherwise, selecting never under "Hibernate" option on the power management tab does not delete the hiberfil.sys file.
    -Windows remove the "Hibernate" option on the power management tab and delete the hiberfil.sys file.

    You can control the amount of space your system restore can use...

    1. Click Start, right click my computer and then click Properties.
    2. click on the System Restore tab.
    3. highlight one of your readers (or C: If you only) and click on the button "settings".
    4 change the percentage of disk space you want to allow... I suggest moving the slider until you have about 1 GB (1024 MB or close to that...)
    5. click on OK. Then click OK again.

    You can control the amount of space used may or may not temporary Internet files...

    Empty the temporary Internet files and reduce the size, that it stores a size between 64 MB and 128 MB...

    -Open a copy of Microsoft Internet Explorer.
    -Select TOOLS - Internet Options.
    -On the general tab in the section 'Temporary Internet files', follow these steps:
    -Click on 'Delete the Cookies' (click OK)
    -Click on "Settings" and change the "amount of disk space to use: ' something between 64 MB and 128 MB. (There may be many more now.)
    -Click OK.
    -Click on 'Delete files', then select "Delete all offline content" (the box), and then click OK. (If you had a LOT, it can take 2 to 10 minutes or more).
    -Once it's done, click OK, close Internet Explorer, open Internet Explorer.

    You can use an application that scans your system for the log files and temporary files and use it to get rid of those who:

    original title; Problems with automatic updates. Help, please.

    Security alerts Windows keeps advising me that I have automatic updates turned off even if I turned them on in the system menu. Security Center said, however, that they are turned off and fails to address the problem. I tried to run windows repair, but it has encountered an unexpected error and could not continue. I'm afraid that I have some types of malware on my computer and there is a security risk.

    Hi, Thatreallyawesomeguylololol,

    Start in safe mode with network.  Turn off the system restore to ensure that no malware hides in the restore points.

    Download the tool from Microsoft.  Run a full scan.

    Once you have determined, there is no malware or malicious software has been quarantined or deleted from your system, run the System File Checker.

    Right-click on the command prompt window and select run as administrator

    Type the following command:


    Press enter

    Note: There is a space between SFC and / scannow

    Press start > run

    Type %windir%\Logs\CBS

    Press Ok

    Search for can't fix... and note files SFC is unable to repair (if applicable)

    Right-click on command prompt and select run as administrator

    Type the following command:

    CHKDSK /F /R

    Press enter

    You will receive a message about the disk must be locked.  When asked if you want to scan on reboot, press on Y and press enter

    Restart the computer

    The scan takes a few minutes and once completed, once the computer restarts, open the event viewer > Windows > application log. Look for Winninet to see the results of the analysis.

    Reset Windows Update

    The day before I had defragment the hard drive and do a "Disk Cleanup" after many months.  Laptop was significantly faster.  Then, there was an automatic update of Windows and now the laptop is extremely slow.   Any suggestions as to what I should do next?  Thanks to you all!
