Bobbo here. I did have to activate the subscription when I installed it, but that was 11 months ago and the problem only started recently. I did not reinstall the program.
I wasn't aware of the thread, but somehow my question is at the end of it! Seems like I'm not the only one with this issue.
The strange lines on report after updating to 25:10 were:
Normal security references (up to 5000): 7 from 1 to 13
Abnormal references: 0 from 0 to 0
Transactions renumbered/highest/set to zero: 0/0/0
Recheck of highest after renumbering: 13
Maximum security references after renumbering normal/moved: 13/13
See Q-Renumber.txt in QW.EXE directory for details.
Super validation complete
Maybe we need what Windows 10 has with the ability to put off updates for for 7 days before it must be downloaded to allow users who want to try a new update to try it first!
