I seem to have developed this minor problem on my Toshiba Satellite laptop, running Win 7 SP1 in the past week or so.
I always prefer to run MSE as my antivirus program on my both current computers, as it is simple to set up and maintain "usually" -
The scan will run OK but I have no idea if I have a recent updated version, as it always stops at about 1/3rd of the update and then time out.
The same internet connection (ethernet) is used for my XP Pro SP3, and that has no problems with MSE daily scans and updates.
I had a quick look at my OTL logs and I cannot find any conflicting other A/virus installed that may cause a basic problem.
MBAM and SAS (non registered versions) are installed, and can be manually updated every day without problems, and not even a tracking cookie has been found in about the last week or 2 of checking, so it seems that an infection is not involved at this time.
To be sure of being clean I need to disable MSE, download ESET online scanner, and run that program.
I have removed MSE via Programs and Features, then reinstalled, but this has not improved the problem. Still no updates.
Any good ideas -
Thank You -
