Belarc Advisor/Windows Updates

by eddie11013 / April 7, 2006 2:49 AM PDT

What if you ran Belarc and it stated that KB900725 needed to be reinstalled. You checked Control Panel/Add & Remove Programs/clicked show updates and found this "KB" installed with a note that said it could not be removed. You went to windows update and it said that you did not have any updates to install. You used Google and found it and reinstalled it anyway and rebooted and ran Belarc and it "still" said you needed to reinstall this KB. Would you ignore Belarc or what? Windows XP Pro, SP2, Dell Dimension 2350, 1GHz, 1GB, cable modem.
Thanks for any advice.

I installed that program and it said everything was fine, BUT, LOL,it stated that my "computer is not running a Windows OS"!!! Duh? Windows XP Pro "not" a windows Operating System? At least I got a "second opinion", that all updates are installed. Oh well, I guess I'll just go on with my life and not worry about this issue any more! LOL
Thanks again, Tom

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
