Live Update

When I try to run live update on my KT3 Ultra ARU I get to about 10% on the download and it just stops downloading. I am having this problem on several of the drivers and utilities. Any idea what is going on here? Any other downloads from other sights work fine.
Thanks
Dave

Hello Jean,
It's common knowledge that anything developed by Symantec does not play well with OS X. Symantec stopped all development and updates for Macintosh a long time ago. You would be well advised to find another security program for your computer and dump all your Norton.

  • HELP: Failure flashing BIOS using Live Update 5

    Hi,
    I used Live Update 5 to download the latest BIOS version for my MB. Then when I was running the update, I chose "". (I know it's incorrect and I should have chosen the other one.) After the update, the machine restarted and showed a cursor blinking on the top left on a black screen, and it wouldn't proceed any more. I can enter the BIOS without a problem. I can also boot from CD or USB, but the windows on my machine simply wouldn't boot.
    After the problem arose, I have tried flashing the BIOS with the MSI Forum HQ USB Flashing tool on this forum. It tells me that  but the same problem remains.
    What should I do now?
    Thanks for your time and consideration!

    After any flash, the battery should be removed for awhile and the CMOS cleared. Reset all your BIOS menu settings again making sure the boot order etc. is correct and the proper mode is selected that your OS was installed under, i.e. IDE or AHCI mode.

  • Updated bios via Live Update and now my Network card isn't detected

    I have an msi Z87-GD65 Gaming Motherboard and I updated some drivers and the bios via msi Live Update 6 last night and now my computer refuses to recognize my network adapter. The adapter is a TRENDnet N600, plugs into PCIe if I'm not mistaken. Wifi if my only option with this computer, I can't use ethernet, so it's really important I get the network card working again. I have had zero issues with it until this.
    The reason I was updating was to try to get my third monitor to work when plugged into the mobo, while my other two were plugged into the graphics card (which I also installed yesterday, but it's working fine). Note that it still was not working, but I had enabled the IGD Multi-Monitor from bios.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated. I did try uninstalling the drivers but it still won't detect the network card. I also tried disconnecting and reconnecting the network card (and I cleaned the port for good measure).
    I've only been using Windows computers for a year, so bear with me if there's stuff I don't know. Thanks in advance. I can try to get a full list of what was installed later tonight, but all of it that I can find has been uninstalled at this point.
    Note: I did not flash the bios when I installed, which I have now heard is a bad idea, apparently. l:

    what OS you are running?

  • Office 2013 (Word, Outlook, Excel, Power point) are not responding after live update

    I had problems all last week with my Office applications not responding. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the software which did not solve the problem. I then did a samsung 5 recovery to factory state and installed office all over again which temporally
    worked. My computer then prompted a windows live update after which the same problem came back with windows application not responding.
    Please help as this is holding up my work.

  • MSI Live Update Installation Causes Windows XP To CRASH!!

    I have a MSI K9VGM-V (MS-7253). Product specs are here: http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=K9VGM-V
    I have attempted to obtain my updates for my drivers and utilities. MSI uses the Live Update to detect and suggest these for your system. However, I cannot get the software to install to my PC. I have tried to do in through the website AND by downloading it and running it off the hard drive. Each time it gets into the install process and during it - (Boom) - My PC Reboots. When Windows XP (Home Edition) boots up, it says "Windows has just recovered from a serious error." It goes through the reporting to Microsoft process and takes you to their website where it says "You have received a blue screen error. Unfortunatly we were unable to detect what caused this." Then goes on to suggest to restore your files or restore to an earlier state if your system has become unstable (blah blah). Now I really didn't ACTAULLY see a blue screen, the PC just rebooted. I am aware of the blue screen of death and all that. I understand the concept. But I don't know what could be wrong. My system is very basic with little upgrading from me. I have installed all the Windows Critical Updates, so I am now running Windows Service Pack 3. Does anyone have any suggestions on what might be the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I tell you that.
    NOTE: And the following might not have anything to do with my problem but I noticed on MSI's web site, located at this URL: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=utility&maincat_no=1&prod_no=260
    they say give a warning about MSI Live Update when installing it to my PC/Board. Look under the MSI Live Update Utility at the "Notes." It says:
    "For K9VGM-V (MS-7253) mainboard, please do not select the DMI optopn.
    Now I don't know what DMI means except maybe "Definition Multimedia Interface." And I don't get the chance to select any option during the process. If I do, the process hasn't made it that far before my PC crashes, and re-boots. Please, anybody got anything on this? Thank you.

    Thank you so much. I just want to say I really appreciate when people do take the time to post me in return. So I really mean it, Thank You.
    A quick question. You see, I have been upgrading my computer. I installed a Belkin USB USB Card (high speed 2.0) cause I needed more USB ports. Then I checked for compatable RAM and upgraded my RAM from 512MB to 2Gigs. Everything alright.
    Now, I have checked for processors that are compatable with my board K9VGM-V (MS-7253). And MSI's chart says mine is compatable with the AMD Athlon 2x 6000 (3.0Ghz) *IF* I use the 89 watt and not the 125 watt. Here is a good URL for the processor details I found:
    http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Athlon%2064%20X2%206000+%20-%20ADA6000IAA6CZ%20(ADA6000CZBOX).html
    Now do you have any tips and I will probably have to flash to BIOS for sure after this upgrade won't I?

  • Smart playlists no longer live update

    I wrote in about this once before but got no solution. I use a smart playlist on my ipod touch to give me only podcasts with less than 1 play, so that I only get the new ones. When I got the ipod for Christmas, and until about late January it was working fine. All of the sudden it stopped live updating, and now only does it when I sync. This really ***** because I listen to about 25 podcasts a week, so it can be very confusing as to which I've heard and which I haven't. Is there any solution for this? I've tried using podcast = true and genre = podcast, but neither will smart update. As I said it worked fine previously, so it's not that podcast = true is completely broken, as I've heard it said elsewhere.
    Any help much appreciated.

    Sorry about that, I must have misunderstood.
    This is the situation in detail.
    When it worked:
    A podcast would download. It would instantly appear in my smart playlist labeled "podcasts".
    The playlist has the rules "podcast = true" and "playcount = less than 1".
    I would sync my ipod.
    I unplug the ipod.
    When I listened to a podcast on my ipod completely (until the very end), the podcast would be removed from the smart playlist immediately, even though my ipod wasn't plugged in.
    Now:
    A podcast downloads. It appears instantly in my smart playlist.
    I sync my ipod, and it appears in the smart playlist there too.
    I unplug the ipod.
    I listen to a podcast (every second of it) through the playlist. When the podcast is over, that podcast remains in my playlist, despite having a playcount greater than 1.
    When I listen to podcasts on my computer directly via the smart playlist, it IS live updated. That is to say that when the podcast ends it is immediately removed from the playlist. That's what I want to happen on the ipod when it isn't connected to my computer, just like it used to.

    I wanted to have the SSDs in RAID0 with Win7 and the games on it, then a volume on the 2TB that the RAID backs up to, with the remaining 1.5TB just free storage space in another volume.  I couldn't get raid past Win7's Where Do You Want To Install screen during installation, so I ended up installing the OS on just one SSD.  I figured I'd backup the functioning OS to the 2TB then rebuild the RAID array and copy the OS back onto it.
    The system had been up an running for a full day, being updated left and right nonstop, several big games put in, etc etc, everything was running fine until I decided to run MSI Live Update and started pumping in updates.  Constant errors as I went along, but generally it'd just skip to the next installation attempt.  When it got down to updating the BIOS and did it's DOS injection thing, it for forcefully shut down the PC, restarted, did Post, flashed the BIOS wallpaper, restarted again, Posted, no BIOS wallpaper, just endless "Missing Operating System".  Walked away, went to bed, back up and at it for a few minutes (Will be back tonight for however long it takes to get it fixed).  I switched the BIOS switch over, no dice.  Feels like it's a BIOS "OS" that's gone, and that a BIOS reset/flash is in order or something, but I've never done these things.
    Thanks in advance for any rendered assistance that leads to resolution.

    The SSDs are definitely hooked up where they're supposed to go; the motherboard had a little sticker n' everything for where the two SSD dedicated SATA 6.0gbps ports were :P  AND my case has 2 specific slots for SSDs which don't use the hotswap electronics PCB passthrough like the other 4 bays, which is where the 2T is installed.  I was going to take the 2TB out and hook it up normally and see if that changed the speeds, but I'm leaning towards wishful thinking.  Did I mention I went and made several volumes with different file cluster sizes to test and see if that was the issue?  Alas, all were borked.  It still confuses me though because every once n' awhile it'd do massive burst speeds the way it's supposed to.
    As far as I can recall I'm using up to date BIOS, the last one or two.  One BIOS switch is set for the last BIOS, the other switch is a step back devoid of the Windows 8 stuff.  I believe I have all the drivers up to date as well.  Intel 335's are literally brand new, mine hadn't been more than 3 weeks old off the production line when I received them; IE, they should pretty much have the latest firmware on them which spares me the risk of destroying something precious 
    I MIGHT have a SATA external enclosure around here somewhere, if so, the 2TB could go in that for additional testing until I figure out where it's sustaining speeds of 2-10MB vs 100-150MB/second.
    Meanwhile, the good news is that the system has been fully operational and hella stable.  I hadn't slept in almost 3 days, playing and installing stuff nonstop.  The system continues to run cooler ([email protected] CPU speed) as the thermal paste sets in, the knocking sound of the fan in the PSU has gone away upon me reawakening a bit ago, and amazingly, this massive system (with EIGHT fans) draws only 60-65 watts while desktopping.  That's just astounding 

  • MSI Live Update will no longer work after recent update

    Recently, MSI Live Update upgraded itself and now errors when a scan is attempted.  I can start the application, and the scan appears to occur but does not complete.  The error is pretty generic: 
    Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
    Runtime Error!
    Program C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI\Live Update 6\Live Update.exe
    This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way.  Please contact the application's support team for more information.
    First thing I did was uninstall the tool, delete the directory, reboot and download and install Live Update 6.x from the MSI  site.  No change.  I figured there was possibly a problem with (one of the) C++ Runtime libraries and checked the system requirements on the MSI website, but all it says its needs is the .NET runtime library.  I uninstalled it, rebooted, and reinstalled it but still received the same error.  Going with the error, I removed all of the C++ libraries (8, 10, and 12 I think), rebooted, and reinstalled them the checked MS for updates.   Sadly, this also didn't resolve it.
    Error in the application log didn't help:
    Faulting application name: Live Update.exe, version: 6.0.12.0, time stamp: 0x54768b62

    what OS you are running? Windows 8.1 x64
    what MSI hardware you have?
    Board: Z87-G43 GAMING
    Bios: American Megatrends v1.9 (7/21/2014)
    Intel Core i5-4670 @ 3.40GHz (not overclocked)
    OS: Windows 8.1 Pro x64
    @jb0nez
    I fixed it though--went to Control Panel, Uninstall a Program, found Microsoft .net 4.5.1, hit Change/Uninstall, then clicked Repair. Rebooted after and it was fine.
    Windows 8.x has .NET 4.x preinstalled as a part of the OS.
    I used DISM.exe which identified a component store corruption (and repaired it).  Live Update still errors.
    Attempts to install from a .NET runtime returns an error of "A higher version is already installed".
    Version of .NET installed: 4.5.51641
    I did disable, reboot, and re-enable .NET as a feature but doing so does not revert it back to stock .NET.
    I also checked Windows Update after re-enabling it and there were no updates - so its not flushing the binaries if its disabled.
    At least I have a direction to start troubleshooting (.NET) - thanks for the tip!
    @jb0nez
    are you also use the same version? Live Update 6.0.012
    @TZBC
    Restore points are out - I let this slide too long.  If I go that route, I'll be fixing one app to break 10 others.
    If I'm going to reinstall the OS, I'll wait until Windows 10 (I'll do a complete wipe at that time).  Live Update  is a 'nice to have', but its not worth my  time to wipe the OS and rebuild the system.

  • Live Update 3 will fail on Windows Vista Home Premium

    Hi,
    I have a P6N Diamond motherboard with BIOS 1.0, in a Windows Vista Home Premium system
    I have downloaded Live Update 3 and tried to run it. I get various error messages one after another: "driver not valid", "Flash_MMIO_MAP DeviceIoControl error", etc, and then I have to close down Internet Explorer to be able to get back to a normal situation in the system.
    Can you please let me know how to update the BIOS?
    Thanks.

    Go in BIOS and make sure USB Legacy Support is Enabled(can be named USB KB/Storage Support), re-try to boot from your USB key again.
    If no change:
    Use HP Formatter(http://www.pctipp.ch/downloads/dl/32594.asp) to change USB key geometry, format the USB key in FAT32 via HP Tool.
    /* some USB keys are picky, and they need a special conditional to boot from it, Forum Tool is using the existing drive parameters */
    Then re-run Forum Tool, when its done reboot PC and boot again from it.

  • Live Updating smart playlists not updating properly

    I have been using some live-updating playlists since I first got my iPod. They had been working fine until just last month. I have a Smart Playlist set to be Live Updating, that follows the rule of playcount is 0. It used to work properly; after playing any song on that list, leaving to the menu screen, and going back to the playlist, the song will disappear from the list.
    For whatever reason, this playlist will now only update when I sync my iPod with iTunes. It used to update on the fly in the iPod itself, but no longer.
    I have not downloaded the updates for iTunes or the iPod, so I don't see what could have caused this change.
    And just now, I synced the iPod with iTunes and while the "Yet to be Played" playlist in iTunes shows only four songs, when I go to that same list on the actual iPod, I get 15 songs. I just don't get that at all.

    Annoyed,
    You might find our little Discussion of this whole Smart Playlist issue:
    http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=1514307#1514307

  • I deleted all of the symantec software  on my macbook, but I am getting an error message saying to run live update or reinstall. I don't know why this is happening, I heard I may still have a file but I have looked and cannot find one. How do I fix this?

    If there is a leftover file, where do I find it. And is my computer at risk?

    I tried doing both, I couldnt find either symantec or live update in applications or when I searched through finder. I went to the activity monitor and found symantec and quit the process but the next time i logged on to my computer, it came back. this is what the error message looks like
    Thanks for trying!

    Thankyou

    It would be a great idea to uninstall Norton - you don't need it and it has a pretty poor reputation for mucking up otherwise healthy Macs.
    Have a look at this User Tip from klaus1: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-2435
    To uninstall Norton:
    https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/home/current/solutions/kb20080427024142EN_En dUserProfile_en_us
    Edit: To see whether you actually have Norton installed launch Activity Monitor in the Utilities folder. If it's installed you'll likely see some Norton entries there.
    Also, in System Preferences>Users & Groups or Accounts, depending on OS)>Login Items, it might be listed.

  • Live Update, Is it me...?

    Hello, the newbie using MSI boards back again. I am wondering if there is something up with the Live Update Site or it something on my end. I have gone to the Live Update site at least 30 times within the last several days and can't seem to get anything downloaded.
    The downloads get one-quarter to halfway done and just stop as if thier server is busy or...? I am mainly concerned with the BIOS update for my board.
    I have one small issue I need to finger out. I was going to throw this thing back were I got it from. Even after solving my hard drive woes.
    I originally had my Audigy card in the 2nd PCI slot below the AGP card. The Audigy would work half the time and the computer would just freeze or just sit in la, la land. I'd have to kill the power and reboot.
    Anyway, I cannot use my USB scanner on any of the USB ports. It is Win XP compat and I have cert. drivers. It worked great on the ASUS.
    I changed the Audigy to the bottom PCI slot. So far she don't lock or go to la, la land and the sound works all the time so far.
    Anything, I don't know that someone could shed some light on? I have had two good days so far and the board seems pretty stable with the exception of the USB scanner.

    I am having the same problem.  I can't get anything downloaded with Live Update.  The download freezes all the time.
    I have noticed that you are using Win XP.  Does your board come with USB2 ?  If so, go check to see if the usb driver is installed or not? If not, install it.  It is included in WinXP service pack.  WinXp and it's service pack installations won't install it for you automatically, u have to go to Device Manager to install it yourself.  Once you are in Device Manager, you'll probably see an exclamation mark next to some device( it's probably your usb controller), right click on it and then choose Update driver or Install driver (don't remember), then choose "Install the software automatically".  It will take 1 - 2 minutes for the process to search and install the usb drivers for u.  The usb driver installation instruction for WinXP is available in Microsoft's knowledge base in its homepage. Go search for ""usb  winxp""

  • How to turn on / off live updating for all smart playlists at once?

    Hello.  Is there a way to turn live updating on or off for all my smart playlists at once?  That would be a fantastic feature since too many smart playlists with live updating turned on brings iTunes to a crawl. 
    Currently, I run iTunes on Windows 7.  I have over 40,000 songs, and I have hundreds of smart playlists to help organize all my songs and what's on my various iPods at any time.  The problem with having so many smart playlists is that iTunes runs very slow.  One thing that I do to make iTunes run slightly faster is to turn off live updating for as many smart playlists as I can stand (by going into each one and editing), but then it's hard to tell which have live updating turned on and which don't.  As a result, many of my smart playlists don't get updated when I would like them to because I have to go in and manually edit each one again to turn it back on.  Maybe showing which have live updating turned on or off would be useful, too? 
    On a related note, my iPod Classic will actually not work when I sync too many smart playlists.  This has been a long-standing problem with iPods, and I'm surprised that it hasn't been fixed yet.  I have not experimented to see if it makes any difference if the smart playlists have live updating turned on or off. 
    Thanks.

    this is exactly what i was hoping to see -- but i can't get it to run right on iTunes 12, yosemite
    it also doesn't seem to recognize "Home Videos" or "Audiobooks" as special and tries to turn them off -- i modified the earlier script to add those two to the lists of exclusions, but still get the same error message on the first "unspecial/real" smart playlist -- hasn't somethign changed in the object model perhaps?

  • P35 platinum combo will not boot windows after bios update via Live Update

    Hi,
    I had everything running on windows 7 fine until 2 days ago.  I installed Live Update from MSI website.  I was about to install driver updates for my motherboard, but the bios update went instead.  my pc tried to restart after the bios update installed, but it failed.  would not post and would only see black screen.
    then i removed one of my memory sticks.  it would post, but then windows would not start up.  it would get stuck at windows loading screen.  i tried to reformat with my windows cd.  but during install it would blue screen of death me.  i tried multiple times and it would always blue screen of death with different errors.  the last one i remember was a message saying i should off turn shadowing and caching.
    this all started happening after i attempted bios update via Live Update.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.
