Preferred Solution: Windows update...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

KB906602 discusses how to troubleshoot these issues.

I purchased a new notebook with Windows 7 in October. During the first weeks I uninstalled McAfee and replaced the harddrive. Since November Windows Update fails with error messages and defender does not start anymore. I made several virus scans (complete) with multiple antivirus programs but nothing showed up.Since it took my days to install various software, I do not want to re-install W7. I also have no good backup that I could restore. I am really surprised that there is not even a single entry regarding the error code in the Microsoft Knowledge base or elsewhere.I really would appreciate help. 

Answer:Windows Update does not work, Windows Standalone Update Installer stops with error 0xc8000247 (Windows 7 Home Premium on Acer Aspire 1810TZ notebook)

 
Got it !!!!
If You are using notebooks with with hard drive larger than 700 GB you probably should update Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver.

First issue is that I need to use a specific older driver for my AMD graphics card and windows 10 continues to update the driver automatically and causes my system to crash. I've gone through {Control Panel-Devices & printers}, selected my machine, then right clicked to Device Installation Settings and selected "no, let me choose what to do". This has no effect as windows continues to update the driver daily or anytime I search for updates. Is there a specific port I can block or cmd line to run?

Second issue, on the windows update window, the feature is frozen on Service Pack 1 for MS Office 2013 (KB2850036) 64-bit edition @ 61%. It's been like this for a week. I've restarted the machine several times and seems to do nothing. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Thanks.

Hello all.
Running windows 10 pro 64 bit.
I've updated from Version 1511 to the anniversary update, 1607.
Or at least, I thought I did.
The update went well, no hiccups, no errors. Used windows update, let it downloaded and install and rebooted. Alas, system still shows OS Version 1511.
Used update again, same thing, rebooted, 1511.
Went to the windows site, downloaded the windows10upgrade9252.exe, ran it, same exact issue, rebooted, still showing version 1511.
Error logs show no issues. Disabled all external drives, turned off anti-virus, etc, repeated, rinsed, rebooted, still version 1511.
Only think I've not done is burned an ISO to DVD and updated from that.
Any clues as to what's going on?
Thanks!
Nelson Davis

Answer:windows 10 update from version 1511 to 1607 anniversary update - does not update

Can you check to see what OS version you have? Check in settings > system > OS build. It should show something like 14393.5 or 14393.10

After installing this updates, unable to filter recordset using array of bookmarks, there is an exception inside msado15.dll.
For example this vbscript:
DIM rs, v(2), ldx

Const adInteger = 3
set rs = createobject("ADODB.Recordset")
rs.fields.append "Id", adInteger
rs.open

For ldx = 0 to 9
rs.addnew
rs.fields("Id").value=ldx
next

rs.movefirst: rs.find "Id=3"
v(0) = rs.bookmark
rs.movefirst: rs.find "Id=8"
v(1) = rs.bookmark
rs.movefirst: rs.find "Id=2"
v(2) = rs.bookmark

rs.filter = v
produces an Access Violation (0xC0000005) exception inside msado15.dll
Similar code on C#:

I am using Windows 7 Professional with Service Pack 1.
Windows Update has lost my update history and hangs when I tell it to check for updates. Windows Update Troubleshooter reports "Windows Update error 0x80070057(2016-07-15-T-12_59_34P) Not Fixed". How can I get Windows Update working again?


Here is a detailed account of the problem:
Earlier today, I ran Windows Update and told it to install 15 important updates. It said it was downloading them, but stalled for 30 minutes at 0% done.
I rebooted my computer and re-ran Windows Update. It reported that there were no pending important updates. I clicked "View update history" and saw that the most recent 15 important updates had failed. I clicked "Check for Updates" and,
when it finished checking, Windows Update continued to report that there were no pending important updates.
At that point, I concluded that something was wrong with Windows Update. In an attempt to fix it, I downloaded and ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter (WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab). It reported one problem found: "Windows Update error 0x80070057(2016-07-15-T-12_59_34P)
Not Fixed".

Hi,
 
Try to remove the proxy server entry from the WinHTTP proxy configuration for Windows 7:
 
1.   
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start programs and files box.
2.   
Right-click cmd.exe in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.
Note If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or click Continue.
3.   
Type the following command and then press Enter:
netsh winhttp show proxy
Note The proxy setting is listed next to Proxy Server. If there is no proxy server, Direct Access <no proxy server> is shown in the Command Prompt window.
4.   
To remove the listed proxy setting, type the following command and then press Enter:

I refurbished a Thinkpad T400 (2.2GHz dual core, 8GB memory, 320GB HDD) with Windows 7 x64, installing the OS, applying 150+ updates, then I installed ThinkVantage System Update 5.05 and allowed it to download and install updates for all the drivers in the system.  When I next went to Windows Update to download more updates, it did not allow me to do so, stating that the update service was not started.  Well, the update service and the RPC service on which it relies WERE started in the list of services.  Windows event files showed some errors, but I was unable to trace them back to Thinkvantage Update.  I tried the automated Windows Fixit and it did not solve the problem.  I also found I was unable to download anything with IE after running ThinkVantage update, so I had to download the Fixit on another computer, put it on a flash stick and then run it on the T400. Well, I could not leave the system as it was, so I reinstalled Windows 7 and immediately installed ThinkVantage System Update 5.05 again, then downloaded and installed all the drivers it found.  Same problem.  Windows Update would no longer update. Finally, I reinstalled Windows 7 again, updated the drivers with files I had downloaded previously from the Lenovo web site, and proceeded to finish off the complete Windows 7 install with all the Microsoft updates.  This time, I did not install and run ThinkVantage Update. I have previously used ThinkVantage System U...

Hi,
 
This sounds familiar.  If you run TVSU again, don't allow it to install the Intel storage driver.  I've seen this several times.  For some reason a buggy (or maybe just inappropriate for the hardware) driver gets installed that breaks Windows Update.
 
If you're willing to give it a try, run TVSU and see if it's offering a storage driver.  Don't accept that one but let the others install and see if WU is still running correctly.  If thigs are OK, hide the storage driver.

When the Windows 10 Fall update (threshold 2) was released several days ago I tried updating via Windows update; it failed to install the update several times. Yesterday it started saying that my computer was up to date and I know threshold 2 has not been installed. Today I decided to try the media creation tool to do an inplace upgrade. It failed as well with error: 0x8007002C - 0x4000D The installation failed in the Second_Boot phase with an error during the Migrate_data operation.

I got this same error in august when trying to do an in place upgrade to windows 10 from 8.1 for activation purposes. I got around it then by selecting to 'keep nothing' instead of 'keep data and apps', it did not matter then because I was already planning to do a full clean install afterwards and just needed to activate my PC, however, now I want to keep everything.

I have attached the error message I get from the Media Creation tool upgrade attempt.

Any help would be appreciated.

My Surface Pro (1st generation) is running Windows 10 and I have it set to update Windows automatically. It's been doing that fine. Recently though I noticed that it always offers me 'Update and shut down' instead of just 'Shut down'. So I let it update. Next time I use the machine and come to shut it down, it makes me update again. And while it's updating, it certainly looks like it's trying to update rather than just shutting down.
According to my Windows Update history, the last successful update was on 15th September. But it's listing no update failures either, which is suspicious.
Anyone got any ideas?

So I updated to the Creators Update 2 weeks ago. And now 3 days ago it removed my public update version of Windows 10 how can I reroll back without the public update?

I suppose you meant the Anniversary Update which began on August 2nd, 2016 ?
Anyway, each time you upgraded from one version to a new one, Microsoft allows you only 10 days to decide if you want to keep the new version or not.
Within the 10 days you can revert back to the previous build as long as you have not deleted the windows.old.
In your case, you are over your 10 days limit.
The only way to go back to your previous build is .....
1. IF you had created an iso file of your previous build.
If you have, you can then use the iso file to revert back to previous build.
2. If you have done a system image backup of your previous build.
If you have, you can do a system image restore to go back to your previous build.
Otherwise, Creators Update version 1703 is there to stay.
Sorry.

I am trying to update from Windows 10 OS Build 10586.589 to the Anniversary Update but my computer freezes at 1% progress. I have tried everything I can think of including: Unplugging all extra SATA drives except my main SSD, unplugging my wireless network adapter, unplugging all USB devices (even mouse and keyboard), removing old drivers and updating outdated ones, and installing the update through a USB flash drive. It always gets to the same part and freezes until I shutdown my computer and lose no data.

You can see pictures of the frozen screen here: http://imgur.com/a/PseoH.

Hopefully someone can give me some guidance on how to fix this as I've tried everything I can think of. Thanks!

I am looking for a script to disable the annoying Windows Update notification.
For a single PC I can go ahead and turn the message off in the Action Center.
Any help with registry edit?

My computer is running Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows Update refuses to download and install the version 1511 update. I've tried to press "Search for updates" multiple times, but it still keeps telling me that it's updated. The last update (apart from Windows Defender updates) was KB3163017 which was installed 8 days ago. The installation of Windows 10 itself was made longer than one month ago so the 31 day protection shouldn't be an issue either.

I've tried to search for a solution, but all I could find included downloading the .ISO file and install it manually, which I'd like to avoid as I then must burn it on a disc and I'd prefer if Windows Update could just take care of it as it does with the other updates.

So my questions are:

Is this normal, should Enterprise versions get these major updates via Windows Update or not?Is there anyone here that also use the Enterprise version and have received the update via Windows Update?Are there any solutions to this problem apart from updating with an .ISO?

Answer:Windows 10 Enterprise - Windows Update Can't Find Update 1511

I don't think Enterprise upgrades to next major builds through Windows Updates. That is so the corporation using Enterprise can maintain control of the versions of software on their computers which is extremely important for compatibility reasons among others.

Why can't you just mount a downloaded ISO file and run setup.exe from the mounted ISO file? Why do you have to burn it to DVD first?

I recently used malwarebytes to remove a fake anti-virus program and some other issues. The fake anti-virus appears to be gone, however I can only update Windows Security Essentials manually (Error Code 0x80072ee7), and the windows update site (windowsupdate.microsoft.com) gives me a "Page Cannot be Displayed" error message. Other sites appear to work fine.

Also, after having Firefox or IE open for a few minutes, a new tab gets opened telling me I've won some sort of prize.

We've written before about Windows 10's new updating policy, and today we're seeing the real-world result for the first time. The Windows 10 Technical Preview, build 9849, is being updated to build 9860. That update will roll out automatically to members of the Windows Insider program, and it will be delivered through Windows Update.
The operating system upgrade is a little more heavyweight than a regular hotfix; systems will need to reboot to finish installation, and Microsoft says that the reboot will take longer than normal.
The major feature of the new build is that it contains the first iteration of Windows 10's notification center. At the moment, it's a simple collection of historic notifications. Microsoft says that future builds will add more capabilities to the notification center, such as the ability to take actions in response to notifications.

This is the part of building Windows that you usually don’t get to see, since we work hard to smooth these out before it typically gets to you.

Answer:First major update to Windows 10 Preview, delivered through Windows Update

And they call this "slow" type updates? I'd not want to think what they'd be if these were on the fast track. 
 
One thing to keep in mind, that is if one has the chance, if there's installed security in the place of Windows Defender, remove it before upgrades. Otherwise, and was the case with me, it wouldn't work anymore, wouldn't repair, uninstall, nor could I enable Windows Defender until it could be fixed (I have an image, but am not going to bother). 
 
These early Technical Previews are the equivalent of Developer Previews of Windows 8 three years ago, which I knew existed, but never ran. I started on the Consumer Previews, and won't participate in the program anymore until these are available, hopefully by mid to late February. 
 
Windows has a tool called Disk2vhd, this may be a good time to install VirtualBox & test any installed Technical Previews out further, while they're still in running condition. Remember for this tool to create VirtualBox bootable VM's, the vdhx box must be unchecked, it can only use vhd files to make bootable VM's. Only certain virtual software can use the vdhx files.

Well; one thing i can tell ya is that when it says cannot update while files in are in use basically means you need to restart your system. Try restarting and see what happens. It may tell you either when the system is in the process of restarting; that its configuring updates. Do not do a hard power down as that can cause even more issues while its updating.

Anyone doing a fresh install of Windows 7 should manually install SP1 (if needed).

The Windows Update Agent was renamed to Windows Update Client.

Manually requesting a search for Windows Updates on a Windows 7 computer with SP1 install should prompt the user to install a pre-SP1 Windows Update (WU) Agent (7.6.7600.320). Seems odd.

That old WU Agent worked just fine until Microsoft changed the update servers. The info coming back from the servers seems to now cause high RAM/CPU usage for some computers... but that old WU Agent should eventually get the job done. The computer might be useless for any other task for 24+ hours.

You can skip installing that old WU Agent and manually install the latest WU Client instead. Or, you can manually install the latest WU Client over top of that old WU Agent.

However, below is what I encountered when I went to install the latest Windows Update Client on a W7 pro 64bit SP1 computer.

I started by using these search terms in Google:
"Windows Update Client" "March 2016" "Windows 7"
As this post ages, replace "March 2016" with the current month/year.
If that does not find the desired KB, try the previous month.

That lead me to this link for March 2016: KB3138612.

The W7 pro 64bit SP1 computer has IE8 installed by default.

Visiting KB3138612 via IE8 got me this:

Answer:Windows 10 Technical Preview Update thru Win7's windows update

Don`t do it on your Windows 7 machine. Uninstall the update and hide it, if that`s what you mean.

Installing 10 to your W7 partition should have no affect on your recovery partition, but I wouldn`t chance it, no way.

Install Windows 10 on a separate drive, first unplugging the W7 drive, they do not dual boot well together.

Install 10 in a VM if you really want to look at it, it is nothing special and not worth the effort.

Answer:Windows Vista Crashes after I install update from windows update

Hello none21,
Go in to the Bios, and make the first boot device the DVD/CD drive, insert the Vista DVD/CD and reboot, it should now boot from the Vista disk, from there you will be able to carry out a repair, or set it back to the point before you installed the update with system restore.
Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

Hello, fellow Lenovo users.  I would like to let you know an issue regarding Lenovo Ideapad S206 (which comes with Windows 7 Starter OEM). Since I need to use and old program and it's not compatible with Windows 7, firstly I decided to move to Windows 8. After confirming the hotkey issue , also posted in the forum, I decided to move to old Windows XP.  After installing Wndows XP and installing some programs (codec pack, AV, etc...) I decided to keep my little netbook up to date with Windows Update. I noticed there is an optional update available on Windows Update (in the Optional Updates section) called: "Other - Processor - AMD Processor"  ( I can't remember the exact name at the moment). If you decide to install this update on your computer and restart it, Windows XP starts FREEZING randomly for no reason.  I repeat: if you install it, the computer FREEZES at any time for no reason.  Note: There is NO Blue Screen. It just freezes in the moment's screen. I made a clean Windows XP install three times while I was trying to find out a reason for this . Only on the last one (the one I'm running at the moment) I hid the update to avoid misclicking and thus, installing and it has no problem running Windows XP. I hope this helps fellow users to not have unpleasant times.   Best regards.

Am not getting any updates when checking for updates, am still on windows phone Update 1

Answer:How can i update to windows phone update 2(GDR2) on my Lumia 730 dual sim in Kenya,Africa??

For Lumia phones Microsoft only confirmed that the 735 and the 830 get this OTA update. We do not know if other devices get this update. Only MS know. Probably for other devices this update is part on W10.

Backstory: I finally got around to performing some updates on my X230 that I usually keep on internal LAN running machines.  It has Win 7 Pro SP1 installed and I checked the update for KB2459268 through Lenovo's recommended software update at the time and thought nothing of it when everything installed and updated properly.  Restarting my machine and RDP to a host and everything worked as normal.  Then putting the X230 to sleep and.... the screen went off like normal, the power button did the usual beating light like normal, but the computer did not sleep!  It kept running and worst yet, did not respond whatsoever to ANY keyboard input, ctrl alt del, esc, power button, nothing!!!  I finally had to force shutdown and figured, probably a glitch.  Did the same process again and yep, it seemed to sleep.  Woke it up, tried it again, and sure enough, same issue (no sleep and no response). I kept getting the same issue for the next week so finally I did a clean install with Win 7 SP1 on a wiped drive, ran the lenovo software update with the KB checked, and tried it again.  SAME ISSUE!!!!  Now I was sure it wasnt a driver issue, and probably not hardware (I guess it could be).  So I uninstalled the KB from programs and features yesterday and the 4x times I used it, no issue.  Leads me to think there is something going on with the KB. How to replicate:Install KB.  Log into an RDP server using the X230.  Issue s...

Answer:Windows update KB2459268 from Lenovo Software update broke my X230 on RDP/ sleep I think

This hotfix might receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, we recommend that you wait for the next software update that contains this hotfix. Uninstall it.

Hi there. I'm new to this forum and it was brought to my attention via searching for help. Looks like a great source for answers Back in January a member by the name of sundavis helped out zigzag8336. I believe i have the same problem with malware.

I, again, apologize for double posting. I figure I should include the host of other issues I'm having. Maybe they can all be inter related.

-my DVD/RW drive, when connected to mother board in ANY SATA slot, causes the BIOS screen to freeze forever. I have disconnected the drive at this time while trouble shooting. I have tried known-good SATA cables so I know it's either the DVD/RW drive or perhaps a driver or mobo failure.

-I have run the memory diagnostic tool in windows. No issues were reported.

-I have NOT run memtest86 because I do not have a disk drive connected.

-I have had stop-errors (BSODS) such as PFN_list_corrupt, System_service_Exception, Memory_management, IRQ_not_less_or_Equal
All of these could be a result of bad RAM.

I have purchased new RAM as a means to fix my problems. It seemed to work for 2 weeks, then the stop errors returned.

Hi all, I am having a frustrating issue at the moment, where my pc is taking 20 minutes to boot - this is primarily because it keeps trying to install several windows updates, gets to 30% after multiple restarts, then fails, and says "recovering original windows installation" and finally boots up. It then presents a list of failed updates. This is below.
These all see to be for Windows version 1709. Can anyone tell me if my issue is possibly because, acording to my system I have version 1703 - and if so, how do I get it to 1709 so i can install these and move on?
Any advice please? This is driving me nuts. The only thing I have found online is recommendations of a full re-install, which i dont want to do, not with hundreds of Gb of games, and all the setup for HOTAS, Oculus and everything to do again, that will always be last resort for me.

I have tried:
Uninstalling BitDefender and trying again. DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth.Using the Windows Upgrade Assistant.Running updates in Safe Mode.

Everything I have tried has the same result. Any help would be appreciated, as a re-install would take me a couple of days to get everything back to where it is now. Other than these updates the system is perfectly stable and runs well.

Answer:Windows update failing - version 1709 Update - no real error message.

Thinkpad E560, Windows 7. Windows Update's "Important" tab lists "Intel Corporation driver update for Intel HD Graphics 520" (published 12/7/2016).  Normally I avoid using Windows Update for driver updates, but this one is in the "Important" tab rather than the usual "Optional."  Yet Lenovo System Update does *not* show anything like this as an available update.  If it was really important, wouldn't Lenovo list it?  Should I install it?

Just picked up Vista Ultimate. Full version. Felt like a made a car payment

System is as in signature.

Installed to a second partition (not giving up XP quite yet). Clean install to that partition.

Install went fine.

After first login, Windows installed updates, and restarted.

Windows update showed 3 driver updates for the nVidia chipset. Installed them.

During install, an error bubble flashed up in the system tray. It was really fast, so I only caught a piece of it. Something about "MFT$ File Damaged" or something like that.

System restarted. It ran checkdisk automatically and it repaired what seemed like 1000 files. System rebooted.

That was the last time windows booted. It just self-reboots half-way through startup.

Will not boot up in safe mode. Last configuration no good. Tried to repair installation from the Vista CD. Nothing worked.

Starting over as of right now. Formatted the partition, and installing again.

Anyone else reported this? There is no clue as to which update caused the issue.

Hi All

Newbie to the forum but not windows.

History: Went to install Windows 8.1 update last night. I first installed 8 updates (half of which were Office based) and then rebooted. I then ran the 8.1 update on its own - downloaded and installed without a hitch. Rebooted and all was well, or so I thought. This morning I tried to download some app from the Windows Store, it failed to load with a 0X80072F8F error (see below). I also tried Windows Update only to find that I was getting an error there as well, the same one! So, I decided to roll back my PC to a backup image taken on Monday and go through the whole process once again but first checked that I could access both the Store and Update, both were OK. I installed the 8 or so updates first, rebooted and checked access to the Store and Update again, both were OK. I then downloaded and installed the 8.1 update, rebooted and guess what, lost access to the Store and Update. I downloaded and ran the Windows Update diagnostic tool, that found some errors but was unable to fix them all (see below).

Anyone any ideas?

Regards.

Dave

By the way you really should wait a couple of weeks before running Update Cleanup, in case you later find the update buggy, and want to uninstall it, and try again. Update Cleanup also deletes the uninstaller for the updates.

It's dej? vu all over again.

The correct behaviour of windows update over a metered connection is to offer the choice to download, or wait until on a non-metered connection.

The initial build of the Anniversary Update broke this, it skipped offering you a choice and went straight to trying to download - which of course stuck at 0% because... well... it's a metered connection! TenForums, and @Slartybart in particular were the only place on the internet that had found this bug, documented it and offered workarounds.
Set Wireless Network as Metered or Non-Metered in Windows 10
(this was in fact the very post that convinced me to register here).

Well, guess what - 15063.0 is broken in exactly the same way. After upgrading my first machine to Creators Update 15063.0 and checking for updates there's no 'Download' button - it just hangs at 0%.

The workarounds were: For Defender updates check for updates in Defender itself. Started from there an update would always be downloaded - even on metered connections. For Cumulative Updates, temporarily turn off metered connections. The stalled update would immediately start downloading. That bug in 1607 wasn't fixed until August 23, 2016 with KB3176934 (OS Build 14393.82).

Turning off metered connections has got me up to 15063.13 now. Until there's a new Defender definition available I won't know if the bug has been fixed (again). OK, there is, and it has.

It's disappointing that MS repeated their mistake of last time, but at least ... Read more

Answer:Windows Update with Metered connection fails: Creators Update 15063.0

Hi Bree,

I just did a clean install using the Insider 15063.0 ISO and my Creator updates are download OK through my metered wifi connection. I am currently on 15063.14 version 1703 (after updates).

However, on one of my rigs, I did encounter a problem where Windows Update was trying to download a driver and it turned out to be a Conexant audio driver. So, what I did was go to the device manager and updated the driver from there. Once done, my updates started to flow. After that, I went through every device and manually checked for updates and I found several PCI components that download updated drivers.

Sorry to hear you are having problems.

regards,

WOT

hello - xp sp2--- in past was able to access 'Windows update' via tools/windows update... then could access option to view what is currently showing as updated i.e. on my computer (update history).
..... suddenly today, that 'feature' is not working - tried everything recommended on the 'site' ..i.e. .added site to pop-blocker/low blockage setting; (never a problem before today).. it tries to 'load' that page - i see it 'flash' briefly then disappear with another page appearing stating there was a problem accessing my personal 'update history' (or whatever the language was - don't remember totally)..
Don't know if this is related but also today i just downloaded & installed the NeT recommended update (restarted computer) and i think it was after that was completed that i tried to view the link for 'history of updates' -without success.
I read ''FAQ'' and did what i wrote above ... HELP! thanks - Edythe
PS: under Security - my NET is showing as 'enabled' - course i haven't a 'clue' what that means - LOL - I also did a virus scan - no problems -

My internet data is limited to 1GB/day. Although Microsoft providing Windows 10 FCU iso and its link valid for 24 hours only, unfortunately i can't proceed with that one.
Now i found esd file to update windows 10 FCU from CU. Here is the link, [link redacted]
It it good download from that site. Thank you in advance..

Answer:Is it safer to download ESD file to update to Windows 10 Fall creators update

What kind of trouble are you having downloading the link from Microsoft?
I deleted the link because it's not a good idea to download the link from a third party when Microsoft itself publishes the files. It's extremely difficult to know for sure if any third party is adding malware or something else into the files.

Though they both seem to work fine, but as soon as I update one, the other one wants to replace it. The Windows Update seems to be the higher up version, but ThinkVantage seems to think otherwise. Which one should I go with?

I am at my wits end with this thing. For the past week I have been researching and applying possible fixes to get rid of the problem and make it go away but it proves to be a persistence one. Every time I try to access Windows Update it will redirect me to www.msn.com. In addition, a lot of the anti-spyware/adware I tried to install would not update so I have to do them manually. This included ad-aware, which I asked a friend over messenger to download the most current definition so I can update it manually (I could access the lavasoft website alright, but when I try to download the latest definitions, it redirect me to a different page). I did try to restore my computer to the original manufactured version but it did not solve the problem. I ran Ad-aware and spybot on my computer until they runs clean (both in safe mode and normal mode with restore disabled). I also use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, which I must have done over 20 runs >.< Anways, sometimes it comes up clean and sometimes it comes back with the following again:Registry Data Items Infected:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\DhcpNameServer (Trojan.DNSChanger) -> Data: 85.255.114.35 85.255.112.79 1.2.3.4 -> No action taken.HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{7399b5d5-4309-474a-8d48-ce0fb03498e5}\DhcpNameServer (Trojan.DNSChanger) -> Data: 85.2...

Answer:Trojan.DNSChanger, windows update goes to msn, anti-spyware/ad-ware won't update

This thread can be closed. I resolved the issue. It wasn't my computer at fault but the router. I became suspicious when every single computers in the house exhibit the same behavior. So to test it out, I use one computer to hard-wire to the internet without the router and I was able to access the windows update page without any problems. Whatever someone did to my router, I have to revert it back to the original manufactured version and afterward, everything ran smooth again. All of my virus software, anti-spyware/adware software are able to update without any problems now. Thanks everyone.

So my internet at the moment is pretty slow, so updates are taking a while. However, my laptop is already up to date, so I was hoping this new torrent-like update delivery thing would allow my laptop to stream updates to my PC. But the update download is still going really slow on my PC, even though it and the laptop are connected to the same network and homegroup.

Anybody know a way I could get this kickstarted? The update sharing is enabled on both computers.
 

Answer:Windows 10: How to force Update Delivery Optimization (update sharing over network)?

That feature is meant to spread-out load, not necessarily deliver updates faster.

Update delivery speed is limited by the BITS policy on both the client and the server.

Microsoft Announces New Monthly Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Creators Update

Microsoft rolls out new cumulative updates every month on Patch Tuesday, including here not only security fixes targeting vulnerabilities in Windows 10 and installed Microsoft software, but also OS improvements and other tweaks refining the overall experience.

Today, the company announced that it would publish a second cumulative update for businesses running Windows 10 Creators Update, this time including non-security fixes.

Microsoft says that although it wants to release one such cumulative update every month (in addition to the security release on Patch Tuesday), there might be cases when more than a single extra cumulative update is shipped, depending on the bugs that it needs to fix.

These updates will be listed as ?Updates? in WSUS and Configuration Manager, with certain exceptions when critical issues affecting organizations are targeted, so the updates will be flagged as ?Critical Updates.?

Customers who use Windows Update for Business won?t have these updates installed automatically if options to defer quality updates are in place.

You can simply ignore these updates
The software giant explains that Windows 10 users getting these updates will be allowed to deploy them just like the updates that are shipped on Patch Tuesday, but at the same time, be provided with options to deploy each of them only to a subset of devices.

?This enables the organization to ensure that... Read more

Hello! Please excuse my bad English! I've bought a new SL500 last week whithout any  operating system installed. I installed Windows XP Prof, thanks for the help here solving the problem with the SATA-compatibilty-mode in the BIOS! Now I tried to actualize the BIOS. There appears a "loop" after confirming the start-button for  Update ThinkPad BIOS: The "ThinkPad BIOS Flash Update Utility"-Window disappears for about a second and appears again whith its start-window. For Hours I could repeat this procedure ;-) I installed the BIOS after preparing a CD-ROM whith the iso.image from lenovo-homepage, that was working. Trying the XP-BIOS-updater again, the message appears: BIOS-image-file is as BIOS ROM ...  For what can it be useful updating the model number? Best wishes!

Answer:was not able to update SL500 BIOS from a running Windows XP; Update model number ???

Hello Lenovo2009, I would  recommend, not to update bios, when your machine runs satisfactionally now.Also there seem to be some problems with the fan with bios 1.18. If you want to update, then I would recommend to use the cd procedure and not to update through windows.You might want to take a look here.  Message Edited by Agotthelf on 26-01-2009 02:28 PM

Hello,

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 with Windows Updates set to download but no install yet, since many tools start at startup.
However our friends decided to install Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.320 without asking.
This caused a full hang of the system, including frozen mousepointer.
Hardreset made it come back and it booted up.
But Windows Update now needs to install this update which fails with error code 800F0900.
Found kb2887535 for manual install, which failed with error 800b0100.
Found kb947821 and ran it. Last %SYSTEMROOT%\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log attached.

sfc /scannow reports Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
WUC code 800F0900
CBS Logs attached.

Seems some Unavailable repair files ?

Kind regards,

Hello,

I recieve error C80003FA whenever I do a Windows Update run. It doesn't get past the stage of checking for updates.

I've tried several fixes including:
- Waiting 15 minutes and running Windows Update again.
- Letting Windows Update run on its own schedule.
- SFC /Scannow
- Renaming the Catroot2 Folder.
- Running 3 different Fixit tools.
- Clean windows install.

After each and every one of those fixes I've tried windows update and I still get error C80003FA.

SFC Scannow has previously said no errors, but the last run through it said there were unfixable errors. I've got the log, though for brevity's sake I will keep it until someone asks for it.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Answer:Windows Update fails in Update Check. Error code C80003FA.

Clean windows install doesn't fix it? You must be blocked, maybe your firewall???

Hi,

Since the update, Microsoft is pushing strange Update Packages to me. Before the Update, everything was fine, now the Text says i.e.:
for AMD64 based systems KB4051963

but what the heck, I do have a x64 based system (Intel).

I don't now now if it is just the text what is wrong or if MS is really pushing wrong Update packages onto my computer.

Anyone having a similar issue?

Answer:Since Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (1709) - Update Packages weird

It’s OK, it’s just the way MS have worded the update. It’s fine to download & install.
amd64 based is just meaning that it is x64 based windows instead of x86 (32 bit). AMD owns the IP for 64-bit processes that we all use. Doesn't matter if it is AMD or INTEL .

Hello,

today updated to win 8.1 from a one year old windows 8, everything went fine
Then I followed Toshiba recommendations for updating the tools but despite doing exactly as explained the flash cards(and the functions buttons) are not functioning, they worked perfectly in win 8!

_The only utility that fails to update is PC health monitor,_ the version installed is 1.9.04.6402 and the one from support site for win 8.1 is 1.9.09.6400, when trying to install it fails with error message "not support"

When trying to open the installed health monitor there is also an error message "can`t get the bios type".

This is strange and every other utility recognizes the latest bios version 6.70 an the laptop`s details an serial
I tried all I could think about, installed flash card support tool from win 8, enabling and disabling in the bios, even installed VAP for win 8 but no change

Any help would be highly appreciated
Latest system driver and other tools are installed

Thanks in advance

and buttons OK or cancel
