My computer constantly notiies me that I have new updates to be installed.  When I click on the icon and install the new update, I notice it is always SP1.  When I check my update history it shows that SP1 has successully been installed many times.  What is causing this?

I am running McAfee Internet security 2013. I am not finding a way to diable it while I run Tweaking.com. What do I do to temporarily disable my anti-virus?

If you double click on the McAfee icon a page should open with options to the Real time scanning.

 

When I think of McAfee I'm reminded of a review by Rotten Tomatoes of the move 2012: Doomsday.  The author of the review stated that they tried very hard to find something good to say about this movie, but couldn't.  That's pretty much the general sentiment for McAfee here.  It is a resource hog, doesn't play well with other, and isn't as effective as some of the freeware antiviruses available. AVAST! is one of the better ones available currently.

I am trying to copy the logs to the search area on the start icon. When I try to paste in this area, I am unable to click on the paste because it is not in bold letters. How do I copy and paste as instructed to above?

I am trying to copy the logs to the search area on the start icon. 

 

I don't understand why you are trying to post the logs as they aren't needed here.

 

Let's try this a different way.

 

Part A.

 

1)  Click on the start startorb_zps06e1f985.png orb and type services in the Search box.

 

2)  Services will appear in Programs above the Search box, click on this.

 

3)  Scroll down the list of services till you find McAfee, right click on it and choose Properties.

 

4)  Under Properties you will find Startup type, click on the down arrow to expand the menu and click on Disable, click on Apply, then OK and close services.

 

Part B.

 

1)  Type in msconfig in the Search box, right click on msconfig in Program and click on Run as administrator.

 

2)  Click on the Startup tab and look for McAfee entries listed as PROGRAM FILES\MACFEE under COMMAND column (that is the path where Macfee installed its executables or dlls).

     When you find these remove the check marks in its boxes, click on Apply, and then OK

 

3)  Close System Configuration and restart your computer.

 

When you are done with the Windows Repair (all in one) you will need to reverse the changes you made.

OK, I have downloaded and run Tweaking.com as instructed but still am having the same problem with SP1.  It shows it has been successully installed in my update history but keeps showing it as an important update that needs to be installed.  Somehow my OS is not recognizing SP1.  When I tried to install SP2 I am told that It cannot be installed until SP1 is installed.

Try using the Fix it at Microsoft Support to resolve this issue.  

 

Under Diagnose by using automated troubleshooter click on Windows Vista and Windows XP.  

 

Then click on Run now in the Fix it box.
