Windows 7: Windows last update and MSE was gone!

Windows last update and MSE was gone!

Howdy,
The last couple days, don't remember exactly, there was an 8 item Microsoft update. A very large one. I allowed it to update and everything seemed to be fine. Then I noticed that my MSE taskbar icon was missing. I could not locate any of it on my computer. I downloaded a copy immediately and reinstalled it. Was this normal, did I do something incorrectly. W7 still like to throw me curve balls. Thanks for any assistance!

I don't suppose you know when and which updates you downloaded and installed?
See Windows Updates and check the Update History (see left side links).

I don't think it was because of the updates. I had the same ones on Wednesday and I still have MSE. You might want to run a scan. Are you sure that MSE didn't just get moved into the Notice only group (the little triangle)?

Here's mine:

Hi Glennc

No that was certainly not normal behaviour. I don't remember seeing any posts about issues with this months updates. The only thing I would say is that just because the tray icon was missing doesn't automatically mean Mse was removed, it may just have been a tray icon issue. Sometimes after I have updated or installed large amounts of softtware It can take a couple of reboots to reconfigure the boot/start-up program sequence again and some of those updates where quite significant in size and took some time to settle again after reboot.(Mainly the .NET updates)

I don't recall ever seeing a large bunch of MSE updates on my computer so you might want to run a full anti-virus scan in safe mode, for which Malwarebytes is highly recommended.

You can download the free version here: Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a free download that removes viruses and malware from your computer

I did a complete scan with everything I had norton/superantispyware/antimalwarebytes and then with the newly downloaded and updated mse.
Everything came out clean. Have done it several times since.
Thanks

Howdy carwiz,
Now that you mention it, I don't have the Notice only group and forgot how to gain access to it. I know I did download it and install it and everything popped back up like it was supposed to. Darn I should have written everything down. I forgot about it until I was asking some other questions. This forum has saved my hide a number of times. Shame about my sanity {:-)!

Hello Danny,
This could have been the case, as it was a .NET download and windows defender. I just did a download and reinstalled. That seemed to happen without a hitch, no error indications. So I just don't know!
Thanks for the assist

Thanks Glenn. Having worked on the aircraft depicted in my signature well over 40 years ago I feel so proud to see it restored and back in the air where it belongs rather than as a museum piece.
