Update chaos on Vista here.
As of 15 december 2007 (almost 2 months now) i’m using a new computer system with Vista Ultimate 32 bit. 3 user accounts on that system: 1 admin (me) and 2 standard users (besides the admin + guest account of course).
I’m using BOClean 4.25 since that day; installed as administrator. Windows Defender is completely turned off. NOD32 2.7 is my AV; no other special anti-malware applications running.
Not sure who’s to blame, but today it’s the 4th time i notice something is not right with the updates.
When i look more closely into this i find a little chaos:
On my (admin) account the “last updated” notice stated 2008-02-03.
On a second (standard) account the date of the was 2008-02-04.
On the 3th (standard) account the update was from 2008-01-13.
These are the dates of the .XVU files in the virtual store locations: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\ProgramData\BOC425
Next to that there exists also a .VXU located in C:\ProgramData\BOC425.
Date of the .VXU there was 2008-01-21.
Previous 3 times i cleaned out all .VXU files i could find with the windows search and reinstalled BOClean again to get things working again. That works for some time for me: but i’m not sure how things where with the other accounts at that time. Did not check then.
A manual update does NOT update the .VXU file in the virtualstore location for the current user (or any users) i found out today. It updates only the .VXU in C:\ProgramData\BOC425!
When i copy the .VXU from there to the virtualstore locations of all the individual users, the “last update” notice in BOClean for each user gets the right date stamp (but only at the next logon).
Any thoughts, confirmation of this behaviour/problem?
Why is the auto or manual update not distributed to all users? BOClean claimes to be Vista compatible, so what gives? Do i have a borked Vista?
