I use Edge in Win 11.

I think you are probably right that the spam catcher alert is incorrect and would seem to be browser specific.

If you do a manual check for updates, MS will give what you need.

Try it again but without catalog.

netsh winsock reset

I don't know why it did that but glad you were able to fix it.

The full cmd is netsh int ip winsock reset catalog

From what you posted, you had left out netsh

If you've done a clean install then do a check for updates and Windows Update will automatically give you them and then you can select what you want to download and install.

The Search works fine on my WR so I'm unable to replicate your problem.

I suggest you run a Command Prompt as an admin and enter these cmds -

netsh int ip winsock reset catalog

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /registerdns

shutdown /r /t 00

Then see if you get the same error after ther reboot.

This is the MS Update Catalog where you can manually download each update -

Is this what you are referring to ?

Love the product. My issue is that I get the email and the key, but when I enter it into the says restart to active. I restart the program and it is still free. Any ideas?

I've passed this onto one of the admins for his attention.

Sorry about that - try this one -

This is the full Win 7 ISO with SP1.

See if these steps to suspend Bitlocker will help -

You could also try a cold boot by pressing and holding down the power key to see if it has cleared when you reboot.

Wait a few seconds before you reboot.

I forgot to add  that you can use Imgburn to create a bootable disk from the ISO -

The sfc offboot cmd is when you are repairing the volume using the install media.

If you are going to come onto the forum then there's no need to check your emails.

You would need to boot up with install media to run a Startup Repair as it can only be accessed from Repair your computer.

The bootrec and fix mbr cmds would automatically execute on where the volume is installed.

Can you post a link to a website where it advises to change from x:sources to c:

Even when I run a sfc /scannow after booting up with install media, I enter the cmd from the default prompt but first run the cmd bcdedit |find "osdevice" and then I would use that partition letter instead of the X I have exampled in the following cmd -

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=X:\ /offwindir=X:\

For clarity that is a Pipe symbol before find and is the upper case of \

It's the way MS has designed Windows and how it can be repaired.

My forum notifications are also going into my Spam folder but as I check the forum for replies, I don't rely on my emails for those.

You could perform a clean boot to see if any other program in your start up menu is conflicting.

This article will save me some typing -,click%20or%20tap%20Startup%20and%20open%20Task%20Manager.
If it no longer occurs in the clean boot then enable one item at a time in Task Manager and reboot to see if that changes anything.

If there's no change then you will need to do the same with the non MS Services in msconfig.

It's a time consuming process but it's a case of elimination.

If you find anything that conflicts then leave that disabled.

.When the MBR is corrupt the machine will not boot so you would need to boot up with either install media or a System repair disk.

The fix bootrec or mbr cmds will then do the job.

Running Startup Repair three times would normally reinstate Repair your computer into the F8 boot options.

You're welcome - hope it does the job.


It's possible that a repair install may fix the problem as long as it isn't a program that is causing the problem as a repair install doesn't affect personal stuff or installed programs.

To perform a repair install you will need Win 10 install media which you can create after reading -

You could once put this onto a DVD but you now need an USB of at least 8GB in size.

When you've done that, open Windows/File Explorer - This PC and with the install USB plugged in, double click on its drive.

This will open to its files where you then double click on Setup Application which will start the process.

WR currently supports German, Italian and French languages.

BTW - If you remove another Karma point from me without good reason, then I will ban you - Final warning.

A reboot is required to effect updates so you should close all other applications before rebooting and I have yet to experience an automatic reboot unless I have left the machine.

It knows your normal working hour and it wouldn't normally reboot within those hours.

This is on an English system - perhaps Polish is different which is why I suggested that you post on a Polish computer help website, but as usual, after further digging you have found your own solution.

If you had done that first before posting then you wouldn't have wasted my time.

Can you create a restore point then run the Windows Repair program in Safe Mode with Networking then see if there's any improvement.
