    Updater keeps popping up


    This week the Windows Updater program began behaving differently. Now it does not automatically "update & restart". Instead it hangs waiting for user input. It wants the user to agree to allow it to close active programs.


    How do I get Updater to automatically close those programs and complete with no user imput?

    =====

    I gave Updater permission to complete, and it did. Then 2 hours latter Updater started popping up, asking me to let it update &restart the computer. Really?!? There is another update after just two hours?


    How do I stop Updater from updating every two hours?

    :)

  2. Acrobat Reader DC keeps popping on screen

    Hello,

    As per the issue description, I understand that issue with Acrobat reader DC and its popping every time while working on computer. I will certainly help you to resolve the issue.

    There might be a possibility that new security updates are constantly released for the Adobe Acrobat Reader software to provide increased functionality and to patch any security loopholes that might be present. Every time a new update has been downloaded
    and is ready to install, a notification will pop up to alert the user. There are instances where these can be annoying or intrusive; for example, while giving a business presentation with the aid of a PDF document. Disabling the Acrobat Reader pop-ups will
    prevent this type of interruption.

    Method 1



    I would suggest you to follow the steps given below and check if it helps.

    Step 1

    Launch Adobe Acrobat Reader.

    Step 2

    Click "Edit" from the menu bar at the top of the Adobe Reader window and then click "Preferences" from the list of options displayed. Click the "Updater" category on the list of options displayed on the "Preferences" submenu

    Step 3

    Click the radio button next to "Do not download or install updates automatically" below the "Check for updates" section.

    Step 4

    Click "OK" and then click "Yes" when asked if you want to allow the changes. Acrobat Reader will no longer keep displaying pop-ups prompting you to install available updates.

    Method 2

    I would suggest you to scan your computer with Microsoft Safety scanner just to make sure that computer is free of all infections

    You can scan your PC with Microsoft Safety Scanner to ensure your PC is not infected.

    Hope it helps, Please write back to us if you need any further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.

    Regards

    Updater keeps popping up

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    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 Updater keeps popping up :) Best regards.


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