Bogus Windows updates


Recommended Posts

Fine gentlemen,

 

One of the ESET installations on one of my machines keeps notifying Windows updates that have long been installed (i have checked and re-checked).

 

Is there any chance to put an end to this?

 

Thanks in advance.

First, verify in Win Update settings that you haven't deferred any updates or the like. Eset's Win Update notification feature is unaware of such like activity.

Next, verify that Eset's Win Update setting is set to the default "Recommended" setting as shown in the below screen shot. If this doesn't stop the Eset notification, click on the Eset Win Update notification windows on the desktop. Then select the check for Win Updates which will direct to the OS Win Update setting and check for updates.

Finally if none of the above work, you can try to set Eset's Win Update setting to a higher update notification level; Important or Critical. Or, select No updates which will disable the Eset feature entirely.

Hi Itman,

 

Thanks. As mentioned in the original message, no deferred updates or anything else. It's an already installed cumulative update.

 

I'll check for the settings.

 

Best

 

Rick

You can switch to pre-release updates to get v13.1 installed which queries Windows about available updates twice an hour so if certain updates have been installed in the mean time, the information about available updates should disappear sooner.

With v13.0 or older, the notification should disappear after a computer restart unless Widows tells us that updates are available.
