    I have installed on my PC a database with Alchemy Search software, about 330MB total. It has worked fine from June 2002 on my XP pc, and since May 2014 on my Windows 10 PC. I frequently refer to it several times a week. In March 2021 , immediately following a Windows update/download, it failed as a search engine, but I was able to find some wanted files by hand and view the contents. Not very convenient, compared with proper operation. After much fruitless communication between me, the vendor, and the software source, someone else suggested that I re-load the DVD. That went smoothly, and the p

    To turn off windows updates in windows 7 follow these steps:

    Click the start button, in the search box type in 'windows updates', click on 'windows update'
    in the search results list, in the left side of the windows update window click 'change settings'
    then in the option bar select 'Never check for updates'.

    windows defender keeps saying it finds "potentially harmful software" but nothing listed.

    I did these steps and the same problem is still happening. It reports (and notifies) "potentially harmful software" but nothing is listed in the "all items ..." list (or the other two lists). After restart, same problem still - notifications but nothing
    is listed.

    I have disabled real time protection (temporarily) but this doesn't help either. Is it possible to completely disable or uninstall windows defender?

    thanks

    FIXED!! Windows 7 sp1 never ends searching for updates

    Pros:
    • No need for a script, easy to apply manually
    • Much smaller download, seems that KB3020369 is not required, only SP1 is needed
    Cons:
    • Windows Update Client downloaded by the script is newer (June 2016 version is included in KB3172605 instead of March 2016)
    • You will still need to download/install hundreds of updates afterwards, most of them are already included in KB3125574 and installed by the script
