Re: origin update tool.exe problem

This worked for me after lots of patience, sweat, and tears:

Press the windows and "r" key at the same time

type in "msconfig"

press "ok"

Select the bubble "selective startup"

uncheck the box "Load startup items"

Go to the "services" tab

check the box "hid all microsoft services"

select "disable all"

then click "apply"

then click "ok"

it will ask you to restart your computer.  click "ok"

After it restarts, should be working fine!

@rami__wwee please manually uninstall Origin, then download the latest version of Origin and run the installation again. When starting Origin after this please make sure to run it with Admin rights.

@EA_Kristi I did this, twice, still having the same problem with the updatetool.exe
Any other suggestions would be appreciated?

So, it appears third time is the charm, I must have missed something in the instructions first couple of times. Thanks!
