I was directed to a Windows program called Fix-it and ran it. It stated I had several Updater problems and fixed them, supposedly. I then installed for a third time, including reboot. The yellow shield reappeared for the same 3 updates.
I checked with Belarc Advisor. It stated that I was up-to-date on all Windows updates but the 3 for today were not listed.
I reran the Fix-it program. It supposedly found several problems, which appeared to be the same ones it had just fixed.
I doubt this is my computer, which runs trouble-free. I have a feeling this is a problem with this particular update. I would like to know if anyone finds out anything further. Thanks!
Windows XP SP3, Avast, Zonalarm.
