I'm getting the same thing every time I boot up. I'm thinking the only way to stop it is to uninstall easy solve. It's probably Comcast's way of tracking every move people make on their computer. There has to be a way to stop that, just haven't stumbled across it yet

I am having a consistent problem with EasySolve, which, even on this page, syas it is a Comcast product. The message that I'm getting when I boot-up is: "Update in Progress" -- An update is already in progress. You cannot run flows until this process is completed." I have NO idea what this means. For the last 90 minutes this message has appeared, so I called Comcast. The Comcast rep told me that this is a problem that can be fixed ONLY by the manufacturer of my desktop, which is HP. She could do nothing. HUH?
