Preferred Solution: Update message that won't go away

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've tried many times to install the latest critical BIOS update, using Lenovo System Update, and every time it attempts to, it fails after telling me in a popup that I need to turn the system off and make sure I have a fully charged battery. I rarely rely on battery power and use AC primarily, and I used Power Manager twice to do a full reset, just in case. I can't believe I would need to buy a new battery in order to install it, because the battery works just fine. I'm running Windows 7 (64-bit), and exhausted every other update or option, unless there's something else I'm not aware of. Is it just the software toying with me?

A:[T530] Battery error message won't allow BIOS update in System Update

Hello and welcomeDo not perform the BIOS update from within the TVSU. It's much safer to use CD/DVD and ISO image from the T530 support page.

I have had my Dell 8700 for little over a year and have had problems from the beginning.  I am 72 years old, and I am at my wits end!!!

A hard drive was replaced in the summer of 2015, but I have still had problems with the computer shutting down and my having to refresh it to factory setting.

I thought updating to Windows 10 would solve some problems, and I did this in October, 2015.  Everything was fine until a couple of months ago.  The end result was when I tried to refresh the computer to factory defaults, it went back to 8.0 or 8.1, and I evidently lost something in the process.
Now, I cannot update to Windows 10 and when I tried to resinstall the Dell Operating System, I get for both:  "WE COULDN'T UPDATE THE SYSTEM RESERVED PARTITION."
I DO HAVE A SYSTEM BACKUP ON 20 CDS (MADE WHEN I HAD WINDOWS 10).  Could I reinstall the system with these backupdisks?  How do I do that?  I also have a Dell 2 Boot USP stick, I have a recovery stick, too, but it semed that when I used this, I received a message that not all files were recovered
What should I do at this point? 

A:Error message when trying to update to Windows 10 or to reinstall operating system 8.1: We couldn't update the system reserved partition."

On MBR disk, Windows 10 requires a 500MB system reserved partition, while 100MB in Windows 7, so you can try to extend system reserved partition.
In disk management, you can only extend partition using the unallocated space next to its right side. so even if you shrink D: drive, the option to extend the efi partition is still grayed out. My suggestion is to use a third party software, AOMEI Partition Assistant, both the standard (free) or the Professional(paid) version can extend partition as long as there is unallocated space on that hard drive. to see more information read:

The message "Working on updates 12%" has been hanging on the screen for the last 12 hours on my desktop pc.

I had the same problem, though at a different point in the update process, with my laptop.

I had to abandon the update on my laptop and reinstall.

Do I have to go through all that a gain with my Desktop?

I'm very frustrated and thinking of reverting to Windows 7.

Does anyone have some suggestions to correct the stalled update procedure.

I keep getting a message window asking to insert the 'Update Manager' disk.

It even stops my machine from powering down properly : since this problem started, the only way I've been able to shut down my machine is by pressing the power button.

When I click on 'cancel' another small window comes up with the heading again with the heading 'Update Manager' and a note of an 'Error 1706. No valid source could be found for prioduct Update Manager. The Windows Installer cannot continue.' The only option is 'OK' and that results in the previous window coming up again asking for the 'Update Manager' disk.

Would someone have a handle on this problem?

Thank you,

Every time I start up Windows 7 - I get a message alert box with: NO UPDATE HAS BEEN FOUND. Don't know if this is normal or an error. there is no error code. I have turned of updates but still get the message each boot cycle. Additionally, my screen goes blank for a few seconds before I get to desktop, not sure if that is related. Frustrated. This was a new install: Window 7 64 bit.

A:Help with update message at start up

This is probably because of an installed program that is configured to update at startup. Click on Start button , type "msconfig" without the quotes, then click on Startup tab. Disable everything, then restart. If the alert does not reappear, reenable the startup items one by one till the alert reappears. The item you enabled last would be the culprit.

When you say you've turned off updates, which updates did you mean? There can be windows updates, AV updates, Google updater updates, Adobe updates etc. etc.

Hello, 
 
I just got done removing a lot of Malware/Adware from this laptop and now every time I boot into Windows Vista it comes up with a window that is titled "Product Update". The box along the bottom has a red "P" but otherwise it doesn't state anywhere which product or software it is talking about. I've looked at the startup programs and I can't seem to find which entry is making this box appear. The box states, "There is an error with your installation. Please reinstall the application". Nothing happens if I click the "X" to close or the "OK" button.
 
When I began the Uninstall/Change option was not available for any installed program in the Programs and Features menu. I used system restore from safe mode to restore to about a month ago before a lot of these Adware/Malware programs were installed. FileCure, RegCurePro, etc. Once the system restore finished I was able to uninstall the programs. I also ran Malwarebytes and Spybot Search & Destroy which confirmed that there wasn't anything left over after uninstalling the programs.

I've recently bought a new Windows 7 computer, and every two days or so I've been getting a message shortly after bootup that a new version of Java is available to be installed. As I don't use Java, I ignored it the first few times, but eventually I gave in and allowed it to install itself.

Then today, I got the same message again. I allowed it to do its thing and sure enough it then displayed a message that the version concerned was already installed and asked if I wanted to re-install it!! Of course I said no, but I'd like to know why the original message was still appearing even after the installation had been completed.

I checked the installed program list in the Control Panel and it's showing that I have the following two Java versions installed:

Java(TM) 6 Update 14 (64-bit) V6.0.140
Java(TM) 6 Update 17 V6.0.170

I assume the second one must be a 32-bit version as it doesn't state that it's 64-bit.

As I said, I don't consciously make any use of Java and I'm not sure whether I even need these two software items on the computer anyway. Basically I use the computer for email, web browsing, MS Office Professional 2003, image viewing and playback of video clips - so I don't do any Java-based development.

I'm happy to leave the software there provided I can be sure that I won't be getting these annoying install messages. Can anyone suggest how I can put a stop to them?

A:Update Revert error message

Hello -
I have struck this only once, about 6 months ago, and it was a Major Windows 8 M/soft set of updates.
 
After trying many things, I found that installing only 1 or 2 (or 3) updates at the one time solved the problem.
 
Once I had spent one hour doing this, I left it to install the rest and had no problems (and have not had a call-back since).
 
I know the people, so if there was a problem still, they would have called me.
 
Try this, and post back .(only install Important Updates, and leave the optional ones out.).

I use Windows 8.1 Home. I tried the free upgrade to 10 but didn't like it and reverted back to 8.1. Everything is ok. now, except for the one small detail. Whenever I download "important" updates using Windows Update it shows its progress bar with a message: "Your Windows 10 is being downloaded.", or something like that (I use a Polish version). I mean, I download regular updates for 8.1, not Windows 10. It's a small thing; I would consider editing this string manually, but I don't know where it's stored. I already deleted the GWX files and uninstalled the KB3035583 update.

Hello,I have a very frustrating problem.Windows XP SP2Dell Dimension 2400Dialup connectionIE7For several reasons, I manually update my computer rather than using auto updates. I was attempting to do so last night and all day today without success. I last updated back in April. (My new job has been keeping me busy and I got behind on computer maintenance).Here's what happens:I go to the Windows update site in IE. It says that it needs to check for the latest updating software, then says that I need to download and install the latest updating software and there is a button "Update Windows" that I need to click on which I do.The text now says something about downloading updating software and percentage numbers appear: It pauses on 67%, 84%, 92%, then goes to 100%. Then it is copying files, then it is registering. Each goes to 100% fairly quickly, then I get an error page. See screen shot below:I have checked FAQ, discussion forums, and troubleshooting on MS pages to no avail. Any ideas?Orange Blossom

A:I keep getting a driver update message and they want money? ...

Whoa. HP does not charge for drivers. Please tell us what kind of computer this is (model number not just HP, OK) and what version of Windows and describe the message a bit more. Sounds like malware to me.

The yellow bar with the "update" message pops up on some sites, but not all sites.
I hesitate to do updates on things I don't understand, so I'd like to get rid of that annoying popup. Any ideas?

A:Update Plugins message popping up.

Two reasons for an update, compatibility, and security.

Since you show FireFox (FF) in your pix:

Go to Tools >Add-Ons >Click on Add-Ons if it isn't already open.

At the top you will see in blue small print "Check to see if your add-ons are up to date".
Click on that, and you will be taken to a FF page that will check, and return results whether or not your plug-ins are okay or you can further research for the update.

Scroll down a bit, and it will explain what to do.

If it is one you have already been using or need I would just go ahead, and click on the gray update plugins... button.

After upgrading to Windows XP SP2, I had trouble with my NVIDIA GeForce4 MX driver so I downloaded the newest version (6.6.9.3 date 10/29/04). However, now Windows Update service keeps reminding me that there is an update available (52.16). This, in fact, is the old driver that was released in 2003 and is the driver I updated from. I'm not sure why Microsoft thinks this is the latest driver. My question is how do I stop the update notification. I don't want to disable notifications entirely, just stop the one about my NVIDIA driver. Can anyone help? Thanks.
