Win 7 Pro x64, and XP Mode Problems

by sugarbear246 / April 20, 2013 11:29 AM PDT

I have Window 7 Professional x64 Installed on my Dell Inspiron 531.
I have also Installed "Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode.
I kept getting Updates for "Server 2003" which I realized probably were Related to my "XP Mode" Application.
Took me a while to figure this out; so I went into XP Mode and the Updates Installed:)!
Here's my problem though; when I on my Desktop in my Win 7 OS; (I KEEP THESE UPDATES) popping up?
The Updates have ALREADY INSTALLED IN XP MODE, WHY DO THEY CONTINUE TO APPEAR AS UPDATES IN MY PRIMARY OS WIN 7 PRO x64?
Is there a Fix for this?
Thanks for any help out there!

This sounds like a corrupt registry problem
by wpgwpg / April 20, 2013 1:25 PM PDT

Have you ever run a registry cleaner? If so, I suspect that could be the cause of your problem. Registry cleaners do not help and can cause problems - they are snake oil.

I have run recently "Fix Cleaner" and "Wise Care 365 Pro", Do you thing they may have removed something from my registry? I Guess there's NO Fix for this? Is that correct?

Do these two utilities "clean" the registry?
by wpgwpg / April 21, 2013 4:52 AM PDT

If either of these two utilities "cleans" the registry, that could be your problem. I'm not familiar with either, so I can't say whether they do or they don't. But if they did, there're several things you might do. First, you could try System Restore to go back to before this problem started. Second, if you have a system backup on an external hard drive, you could restore from that. Third, you could restore your computer to factory settings in accord with the instructions in your computer's user guide (which should be on your hard drive).

Good luck.

Registry Cleaners.

Why do people think they need a registry "cleaner"?Surely you can hide these updates.

In reply to: Registry Cleaners.

Lots of Good Advice Folks:)! Thanks!
I think I'll stop using Registry Defrag Apps and Cleaners, and Will HIDE THESE UPDATES BECAUSE WHEN I LOG INTO THE "XP MODE" IT SHOWS THEY ARE (ALREADY INSTALLED"?
Go Figure?
Thanks Everyone;
