Windows 7: Click-to-Run "updates have been applied, you can go offline now"

Click-to-Run "updates have been applied, you can go offline now"

For the last little while, something called "Click-to-Run" on my computer was continually prompting me to update my version of Office, since I hadn't done so in awhile, and the other day it automatically ran the update for me. (Up until this point I continuously chose the option to remind me later.)

Since then, I've been getting strange things happening to my laptop, such as the error message upon start up saying that my version of Windows isn't genuine (even though I assume it is -- because I haven't installed a different version of Windows since I bought my laptop, and when I used the product key I was provided with, the activation worked.) as well as multiple of my programs continuously crashing. (eg. NJStar Japanese Word Processor freezes up and crashes right after being opened.)

The update supposedly finished today, (even though it was installing updates yesterday) and I received another message saying "Updates have been applied, you can go offline now", which I found particularly strange.

I ran several virus and malware tests with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and AVG Internet Security 2015, with no threats coming up.

I may just be paranoid, but when searching about the "..., you can go offline now." message on Google, I wasn't able to find anything useful.

I don't know if this will help but it shouldn't hurt.

Reboot and run Windows 7 Updates again.

Do you have office 2010 starter?

Click to run is what powers that. It updates office and applies updates to it. Office 2010 starter is not actually running on the pc, but on the web streaming to your computer. Now if you windows is suddenly not saying its genuine that is an issue.

How did you get office 2010 starter? Did it come with the laptop?

Did you purchase the laptop at a store?

How did you get windows? Was it preinstalled?

I ran the updates, and there were two optional ones. I'll see what happens after they finish installing.

Yeah, I have Office 2010 Starter.

I got Office 2010 Starter when I got my laptop, and I purchased my laptop from Future Shop, which is like Best Buy, so I assume it would've been pretty trust worthy. However, there have been times when I need to get my computer fixed for stuff like virus removal that I can't do on my own, but I always got repairs from the store I bought it at.

Windows was preinstalled.

Ever since I entered the activation key after getting the first notification that my copy of Windows wasn't genuine, the notification stopped popping up, but it makes me wonder why it would start in the first place, when I've never had this problem to begin with.

Offline updates spend enormous time "searching for updates on this..."

I suppose this is to examine the need for and suitability of the update. The first update searches pretty quickly, but then it's very slow - something like 5...
