    Its the software your using thats trying to update itself.. I you might be able to change the settings of the program thats trying to update.. To never check for updates. But there are a lot out there where you do not have this option..

    Hi

    I realise that a program is trying to do this . But it doesn't have an uncheck search for updates option and therefore must be an automatic process .

    Is there a way to totaly disable the windows function of it .

    The program must be telling windows to initialise this function in the first place .

    Thanks

    Joe

    Bump !

    I recently installed a game on the machine for my young son to play and it jumps to the desktop to state the same problem whilst he is playing it .

    Does anybody know an answer to my problem ?

    What version of windows are you using?

    How did you un-install Internet Explorer from Windows?
