Had a fairly large batch of MS updates yesterday, upon rebooting a pop up said my firewall was turned off. I have booted up a couple of times since with the same result, it is easy to turn the firewall back on but a bother other than that all else seems to be fine. I am running MSI and the windows firewall, I ran SAS & MBAM scans the machine comes up clean.

Another discovery!

I do not normally use IE but in reading some of the posts it was recommended to update it to IE8, I opened IE to check on the version when I clicked on options I got a pop up stating "This operation has been canceled due to restriction in effect on this computer. Contact your systems administrator. Also am getting run time error messages when I access some Administrator functions!

Check Event Viewer for possible clues regarding the firewall.

What Administrator functions...provoke runtime errors, please?

Hi when I click on "services" I get the run time error pop up Line 79, asks if I want to debug. I did run Debug this AM but it did not fix the issue. In the event viewer under "applications" there about 30 entries for "windows search gatherer event 3083" today and yesterday. Also in the event viewer "system" there are two entries, one for service control module, one for Dhcp and one for DCOM yesterday. Hope this sheds some light.

Those Search errors...seem to relate solely to Search 4.0, which seems to cause some problems to XP users (and is unnecessary, IMO).

I would suggest uninstalling it and leaving it off...but, if you feel you want it, then reinstall it.

As for debugging...I never have that enabled, so I can't advise on that.

SCM errors appear in Event Viewer...when any service exhibits problems. You need to look at the detail for the error to see what service may need attention. Double-click the line item in EV.

Louis I have searched high and low for Search 4.0, I do not think it is on this machine. The batch of updates I got the other day had some Net Framework stuff which I don't think I need and may be part of the problem.
