Justin told some time ago when I had the same question that  "I think that may be because we switched our website to require TLS 1.2. I don't think the legacy XP build supported this option."


General Questions (Free Home Updater) / Avast
« on: September 04, 2017, 09:37:57 AM »
Just a note to say if you have a custom install of Avast when PatcMyPC updates Avast you will have to go into the Control Panel/ Programs and Functions and select Avast, then Modify to remove the features you did not want.

I am starting to see programs like Adobe Reader DC and soon Google Chrome not supporting Win Xp and Vista. As the operating system is displayed by Patch is it possible to not download and try to install such programs? Perhaps setting them not to update?


Fixed both the Acer and my Netbook.


One temporary solution is to get a copy of version and then disconnect from the Internet. Open Patch My PC and click the options tab. Put a check in Disable Patch My PC Self-Updater. Then reconnect to the Internet and do your updates.

The latest version has a major problem on netbooks, resolution 1024 x 600. One can not reach the Perform Updates Button.

I tried it on Win XP and Windows 7.


It now seems fixed with version on both Win XP and Win 7. PatchMyPC does not want to update Thunderbird 31.

Only one version is installed.


It is now June and the problem still exists. Is there anything that can be done on this end?

When this program is updated it installs MyPCBackup as well. Is there anything that can be done to stop this sort of thing?  I am seeing more programs all the time that want to install junk like this. I appreciate authors need funding but I find this disturbing.

Any progress on this issue? I am still getting the same result.

Thunderbird is up to date version 24.3.0. PatchMyPC wants to update to same version. If I let it update I get the same result on rechecking, PatchMyPC says it needs updating. Attached is screen shot of PatchMyPC.

Even though I have set the language of PatchMyPC as French, Adobe Reader is installed in English.

Link for French version

This is a new install of Win XP Pro on a Seanix portable. I have installed Netframework 3.5 a couple of times but I get the same problem. Each program like Avast is written hundreds of times. The first instance is green and the rest are black.

I have never seen Security Updates for Windows listed before. If I recheck Software I get an Unhandled exception.

Any help would be most appreciated.
