Unable to Install patchmypc
« on: March 18, 2018, 12:56:54 PM »
After downloading patchmypc, whenever I try to install it, I get a pop up statting that Windows was going to log off in 1 minute.  Sure enough, it does.  What is preventing me from installing patchmypc?

Hmm that's odd has it worked before? Did you enable any options in the options menu before?

No, this was my 1st installation since I saw that Secunia PSI was shutting down and PatchMyPc was going to be my substitute.

Since my original post, I downloaded FileHippo App Manager and, while I am able to get the app downloaded, I am unable to open it.

Can you delete the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Patch My PC

See if you still get the logoff error. If you still get it after this, I would suspect this is something with a third-party app.
