  1. Windows Update Stopped Notifying Me


    About six months after upgrading to W10, Windows Update stopped notifying me in advance about updates. How do I fix this glitch, so I know when to expect extra long reboots?

    :)

    6120 has stopped notifying me of new messages!

    Hi Everyone,



    I have a very frustrating problem with my 15 month old Nokia 6120.



    About two weeks ago I went for about 24 hours without receiving a text message, I had been sending plenty and was getting quite frustrated that no one was replying to me! I decided to check my sent items and outbox to make sure my messages had been sending,
    as I passed my inbox I noticed there were about a dozen unread messages in there! I had been receiving messages my phone has just stopped notifying me of them. No sound, no pop up '1 new message', no mailbox icon in the top corner. Nothing.



    I have tried turning my phone on and off, taking out the battery and putting it back in, restoring the factory settings and looking through message settings for anything that looks like message settings. All to no avail. There is no change when I change
    profiles, still no message notification. However my calls still come through as usual and I am notified of things like missed calls.



    Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? I feel it may be something simple.



    Thank you for your help! Anything you have to say will be much appreciated.

    6120 has stopped notifying me of new messages!

    In this case, make a back-up of your personal data (contacts, messages etc.) either using PC Suite or to memory card, then reformat your phone with the code *#7370# - you will be asked to confirm, then the phone will ask the lock code (12345 if you have
    not set a personal code) and then shut down and restart. This action is similar to formatting a PC's hard drive and reinstalling the operating system, so once finished you sould have a 'new' phone.



    Then send a text to your number from another phone to test that notifications are working. After that, restore your personal data and repeat the test. This will rule out corruption in your data affecting the issue. Hopefully, you'll be OK from this point.

    Windows Update Stopped Notifying Me

    Hi, you have the Home edition (good your specs are so complete!).
    May not now be possible for Home... see note at end.

    Although you don't have the Group Policy Editor it has still been possible to set updates to Notify. But see note at the end- and perhaps your experience confirms this.

    It has been possible to do this using Winaero's free tweaker, which is the most convenient (search within it for 'update'), or - you can follow this tutorial (search for Notify) and use the reg file.

    Note however the relevant section of that says it won't work in Home. I have had a couple of people try that and found it worked. It may be that MS has now blocked this on latest builds.

    There is this of course:

  5. Thx. I have two further questions: Is there a way to test these things without waiting for the next update, and is it possible that Quiet Hours turning itself on might be causing this problem?

    In recent weeks with build 1703 I find I get Defender update notifications daily with Notify on- the role of Defender seemed to change somewhat in the CU (I have Avast installed).

    So that might be your first indication if it works.. I'd certainly be interested to know if it's possible to set Notify with the FCU Home build, noting the above.

    With the anniversary build, even with an update pending, at the end of the active hours period, there was no restart. I've never had an automatic restart.

  7. The REG file didn't work. This morning's surprise update happened during Active Hours, so I'm going to try setting them to a time when I'm asleep, which I think is the opposite of the way you're supposed to set them.

    Windows Update Stopped Notifying Me

    Hi, presumably your clock a.m. and p.m. are the right way round...(!) - correct time zone etc..

    If you find active hours doesn't prevent a restart (I've seen it prompt me correctly) you might need to try an in-place upgrade repair install.

    And as I commented, I'm not sure Notify with Home is now feasible.

    By the way, which Windows build do you have? (Win key + R, winver).

  9. I just got notified about an update, so I must have finally achieved the correct combination of settings.
