    The weekly security scan never completes. I have to use task manger to 'End task'. Monthly report say's 'no files scanned'. I've tried the turn it off and turn it on again and that made no difference.

    Please confirm you don't have a list like this:

    e.g. from here (or via the control panel):

    If not, suggests deeper problems. To which uninstall option are you referring? (A picture is worth...)

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Security scan not completing :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    Windows Security Virus Scan

    Yes that's exactly what I have. If you notice there is an uninstall option next to organize if you scroll to other updates ie. office, but it will disappear once you scroll to the latest updates.
