Automatic Update Restart dialogue box wont go away
I am having Windows XP SP2 installed on my Dell machine. The automatic updates is configured so that I am prompted before anything is updated and installd. After the most recent Security Update for Windows, the automatic update restart dialogue popped up. I then restarted my computer but the dialogue continued to pop up no matter how many times i restarted and I cannot get it to go away. Does anyone know how to solve this? Thanks
RE: Automatic Update Restart dialogue box wont go away
You are getting the restart which is by design and it is expected to behave that way, it cannot be turned off. Incase the security update is desired, so is the restart that makes it function. Incase you dont want to restart, then you will have to refuse the update.
It might be that the update could be failing. Try to to a reinstall attempt on restart. Check the below link for more information:
You cannot install some updates or programs:
Can you try to go to the Ms updates site and run the updates engine, and then choose the Custom instead of the Express. After that on the Custom after the engine search for the available updates for your machine you can elect to uncheck the check box beside each update you think may be installed but offered again to you. To be sure you can check your History of updates and see if All the Updates are success or there is something failed somewhere and use the help to see how to install it again.
Can you try to turn off the auto-update (run sysdm.cpl) and do a 'custom' install to uncheck the update and offer for 'do not ask again'. See if that works for you.
Can you try to repair the updates engine. Just copy and paste the below into a notepad and then save it as Reg.bat on your Desktop then double click the Reg.bat to execute it and click "YES" to register the Required DLLs for the windows updates engine.
