    bat file Fials to complete.


    Hi Shawn,

    Just tried the process and the bat file is taking quite a while to complete. Is this normal?

    It took about 10 minutes in all.

    The bat file got stuck at a point where 2 similar issues were attended to and then sat there for about 8 minutes before continuing. After restarting the PC, the Update History was cleared. However the troublesome HP printer driver update that triggered me running the bat file in the first place is still causing the issue I have.

    I have got an idea. Is it not possible for a log file to be created when the bat file runs for diagnostic purposes?

    PS checking the reliability monitor, I see that Windows Explorer stopped responding and was closed.

    Hello Geoff, :)

    Did you download and use the current .bat file in the tutorial?

    It includes built-in checks that should automatically stop the .bat if it's unable to stop a service, and give you an error message stating what service failed to stop.

    The .bat file doesn't stop explorer, so something else is causing an issue with that. If it stopped while the .bat was running, it could possible cause it to hang.

    Hello tsunami, :)

    It used to always give you a UAC prompt when opening Task Manager when signed in to an administrator account since it was opening an elevated task manager.

    At some point MS changed something that didn't give a UAC prompt anymore, that the .bat file undoes.

    You shouldn't get a UAC prompt for them when signed in to a standard user account.
