View Full Version : Firefox 4

Last week downloaded Firefox 4 as suggested. Am running Win 7.
Ever since then when closing down I get the message "Do not switch off. Downloading Windows update 1 of 3", & when booting up get the message "Configuring Windows". Also cannot print from a pdf any more.
All help greatly appreciated.

Welcome to PF1 :)

Try this - Either manually download one at a time, see if they will install separately.

Failing that - click start, type in cmd in the command window type in

net stop “windows update”

Note: Include the " marks

Once the message pops up saying service stopped ( or words to that effect) go into C:\Windows locate the softwaredistribution folder - click it, and delete it.

Reboot windows, once up and running, click start, type in update, click on windows update, manually run windows updates if its not already doing so.

FF shouldn't have anything to do with the windows updates - but you never know - FF4 has caused a few problems with some computers.

What PDF program are you using.
