After todays (7/19) Windows updates my computer keeps shutting off

Question: After todays (7/19) Windows updates my computer keeps shutting off

I just let Windows install todays updates. Everything except Skype (this included an NVidia driver). When the computer started up after the Windows update (with the "don't shut off computer completing updates. etc.) message, the computer shut off. First I thought it was part of the update (and machine would restart) but it was not. Something broke.

I restarted and as soon as hit windows start screen it shut off again. I restarted again and got the "Windows Did Not Start - repair message". I said "run startup repair". Windows shut off during that process. I restarted again, and was able to run the repair process. But once it finished and booted into Windows it shut off again. I was finally able to start Windows so went to command prompt and started to run SFC /Scannow. It shut off during this test.

lastly I thought maybe its an overheat issue. I booted into Windows Safe mode and started the program HWMonitor. It showed my CPU temps at 39 degrees C. Then it shut off again. At this rate I'm going to wear out the on/off button.

Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: After todays (7/19) Windows updates my computer keeps shutting off

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.)

Answer: After todays (7/19) Windows updates my computer keeps shutting off

Try a System Restore yet? Do it in Safe Mode (or repair disk/install DVD), hopefully no restarts to interfere the restore. Then install updates one by one (restart after each and wait a bit to make sure it is alright), Nvidia as last.

You can also try just downgrading GPU drivers first, and restore if it does restart like that.

Got home from work and had 2 a few windows updates waiting to be installed...installed them and restarted and now my 2 cd/dvd drives are not being loaded correctly in the device manager.
Also I have Daemon Tools and had 4 drives being emulated and those also have the exclamation mark over them.

None of these show up under My Computer folder.

I already tried uninstalling the updates but they still stayed the same. It is showing windows drivers for the driver on the devices.

Any ideas other than trying to find the correct drivers for them? That is what I will do right now...but I have no idea what I can do for the virtual drives...already disabled and enabled them but no luck getting them to be recognized properly.

Thanks

Todays W7 updates seem to break IE9 (for me at least) when you go to delete the browsing history. Thereafter no login info is retained when IE9 is closed and reopened. It's as if all cookies and data are wiped. All settings are correct... this is something I have done countless times.
By using an Acronis image I can determine the problem occurs when the cummulative update KB2722913 is applied. Uninstall the update and the issue resolves.
Anyone else had this ?

Today I installed all the offered updates, seven security in total I think plus an optional. I Iooked in detail at the notes for each and saw nothing alarming.

First unexpected happening was the appearance of a new 'Browser Choice' tile on my start menu. Right click and its gone, OK, can live with that.

After another reboot and having let things run for 30 minutes or so I do a disk clean, a reboot and a defrag. All seemed fine and then I notice the live weather tile is just blue. Opening the app also gives just a blue screen. Brilliant !!!!!

For curiosity I start uninstalling the updates and find that uninstalling the IE11 cumulative breaks the app even more... if that is possible. Now opening the app reverts me to the desktop, however I can see the weather app icon in the tray. Clicking that to expand it opens to the blue screen and then automatically reverts back to the desktop.

So its all well and truly pancaked... yet again. Thank you Microsoft.

I'm not even going to attempt to troubleshoot this as I have become thoroughly disillusioned with what was a superb OS. I have a suspicion that all the W10 stuff over the summer has also played its part in making what was once a snappy and responsive OS become somewhat less so. That's very hard to pin down and hard to say for sure... but I have a plan. I'm going to nail this once and for all and know for sure.

Answer:Problems unfolding with todays updates. Why me again ?

Yep, same here in regards to the weather app (blue screen with constant loading spinner). Wondering if this could be related to a server issue causing an updating snafu. I'm still getting the weather tiles but it doesn't seem to be updated. Shows yesterdays temperatures...

My computer is an XP home edition I believe, and it asked me to install some important updated. After doing so, it told me that I needed to restart or shut down my system in order for the updates to take place. When I tired doing so, It gets stuck. I get to a blue "log-off" screen, and it says 6 out of 14 updates are being installed... do not turn off your computer. But it stays like that for hours, and never updates, so I end up having to shut off my computer by hitting the power button. :/

I tried doing a system restore, but those updates have to be installed first. Before it even tries to restore, it deals with the updates. I'm not too sure what to do. Is there any way to bypass these updates, or get them installed some other way? I'd really apriciate the help. Thanks.
 

Answer:Updates for my computer are preventing me from shutting down my computer

Is this a new system? When you go to updates have you validated your copy of XP with Microsoft? Once you do that and make sure your settings are correct in your browser for downloads it does take time but not hours. Are you running firewalls, Zone Alarm etc., anything that would block the updates? Jazz

Answer:Computer Shutting Down During Attempts To Install Critical Updates

In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. An alternative is to turn off the automatic reboot feature so you can actually see the error code/STOP Message (which is also known as the Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD)).

To change the recovery settings and Disable Automatic Rebooting, right-click on My Computer and select Properties > Advanced tab. Under "Startup and Recovery", click on the "Settings" button and go to "System failure". Make sure that "Write an event to the system log" is checked and that "Automatically restart" is unchecked. Click "OK" and reboot for the changes to take effect.

This will not cure your problem but instead of crashing and restarting you will get a blue diagnostic screen with information displayed that will allow you to better trace your problem. Next time your computer crashes copy down the entire error message (including all the numbers) and post it back here.

I apologize in advance for my lack of tech knowledge.  I will try to explain my situation as thoroughly as possible.
 
I am running Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit.  A month ago i had a hard drive failure and had a new 4tb hard drive installed. My motherboard does not support UEFI and because of that the boot sector was moved to a thumb drive and pointed at the Windows installation on the 4tb. I don't think that has anything to do with the problem I'm having now but since it was a recent change, I'm mentioning it.
 
4 days ago my son was using DVD Shrink (an old and sometimes glitchy program) and it locked up. He opened task manager and attempted to force close the program.  It would not close.  After waiting several minutes he manually turned off the computer.

I very stupidly shut down my computer during the "system updates... do not power off or unplug" and now Windows 7 is exceptionally slow to log in or do anything at all.

I system restored it to a point a week before the shutdown incident and I also then installed all the missing updates but it is only marginally better. It still takes about 30 - 60 minutes to log in.

Hi ariana44,

Is it the same when you boot in to Safe Mode? Tap F8 whilst the computer is first starting up and then choose Safe Mode when prompted. Report back whether this improves it or not.

Was it Service Pack 1 that you were installing? You could also try uninstalling it, then rebooting and then try re-installing it.

You might want to include a floppy drive. They are so incredibly inexpensive and you'll need it to facilitate the installation of the RAID/SATA drivers you'll need for your SATA hard drive.

Hi there

Try again after a reboot.

If that fails a decent way is to load a Linux Live distro and then delete the file using the Linux file manager. These are called Dolphin, Nautilus, Midnight commander - depending on what Live distro you are using -- Linux Mint is a decently like "Windows" one if you aren't experienced in Linux.

A reboot in Windows though should release the file if it's not being used anywhere.

Cheers

Just a question... just curious.
 

Answer:Serious: Will Windows 98SE run on todays machines?

I am pretty sure it will not run on most of the newer stuff due to no driver support.

It might technically "run".. but most stuff isn't going to work.

Something tells me that it won't even install on most if not all of the newer stuff since there isn't going to be any PCI-E support.

The newest system I would even dare to say it might run properly on would be a P4 system - pre LGA775.

Or on the AMD side... Athlon XP (socket-A).

Hello
I have an Alienware 17 R3, nvidia 980m 8GB, Windows 10 64 bit
After the Windows 10 Update today I had several BSODS - Video TDR nvlddmkm.sys. This was the version installed from your homepage (10.18.13.5940) which causes the crashes. After several BSODs I was able to go back to the old version of the driver (10.18.13.5442) - now it works.
But is there an actual version existing which don't causes BSODs with the actual Windows 10 Update??

When I go to Windows Updates and click for the express scan for updates I get an error message.  The number of the error message is 0x80248011.  I have tried a couple of the solutions that Microsoft recommends on its Update site, but have not been successful in completing them.  For one it asks me to rename a file, but it won't let me change the name. I have also been having a problem with shutting down my computer and have to do it by turning the power off, so I have not been receiving automatic updates.  How can I solve this problem? Thanks for remembering that I am not very computer literate, so please use the most simplistic explanation as to how to remedy this situation.  Could the problem I have getting updates be connected to the shutdown problem?I appreciate any help you can give me on these problem.  Thank you.

Hi all,

I'm having this problem with my desktop, whenever I play a game, or watch a video from any websites, or when I try to convert videos my PC automatically shuts down and won't turn on unless I turn of the power regulator and turn it on again after a few seconds. sometimes it also shuts down even if xp has just finished it's boot process or even before xp itself reboots. I tried to clean the hardware with a brush in case it's just some dirt issue, it seems to have helped since the pc stops shutting down during the boot process.. however, when I try to play games or watch videos online or convert videos (as I've said before).. after a few seconds, or sometimes after a couple of minutes, it still shuts down automatically... can anyone please help it's starting to become quite annoying..

A few days ago I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit on my Toshiba Satellite laptop, which previously had been running Windows Vista 32-bit. Since installing the OS, my computer has begun shutting down unexpectedly. There are no warning or error messages; the laptop just shuts down. It initially appeared as though my computer was overheating, but all of the air vents were still quite cool. I ran the Windows Experience Index program to determine my computer's performance ratings, and my computer received a 1.0--a significant drop from the 4.9 that it had received before I installed Windows 7. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing the problem?

I have a Sabertooth 990FX motherboard. This isn't the first time I've installed Windows 10 on this computer (I was having issues with a corrupted operating system before, so I've reinstalled Windows several times). Basically, I managed to get Windows 10 to install successfully with no corruption issues. I went into the BIOS to check some sleep settings since a new problem is that my computer won't sleep since Windows 10 was installed, and while I was in there, I enabled a USB 3.0 fast charging feature and since then, every other time that I boot the computer, it shuts off a few seconds after the Windows logo displays, but before the loading circle even shows up. Then I turn the computer back on again manually and it boots. But after I shut it down and the next time I try to boot it, it will do the same thing and shut off and then I will have to turn it on again manually and it will work. I went back and changed the settings back to their defaults, even flashed the BIOS to the latest version and the problem hasn't resolved. Is it possible the motherboard is now dead because I changed a simple setting? I get no error messages, no warnings, nothing when the computer boots successfully. I would like to know what to do before I RMA this to ASUS because I've heard horror stories and I would like to exhaust all other options (without voiding the five year warranty on the board) before I begin what my research has shown me, is about to be one of the most turbulent months or so of my ...

Hello,

I've got an issue with Windows 8.1 x64 where sometimes (not always), if I Shut Down the computer, it'll shut down as normal, even displaying the "Shutting Down..." message, but rather than powering the machine off, it'll reboot just as if I had initiated a Restart instead of a Shut Down.
I definitely know I haven't accidentally told the computer to Restart as it's happened more than once, I know I've selected the Shut Down button and Windows 8.1 even states it's Shutting Down and not Restarting. If I restart the computer instead of shutting it down, it'll restart just as it should, nothing wrong there.

There is no abnormal behaviour at all during this process. The computer does behaves identically to if it was supposed to Restart and Windows throws no errors, BSOD's or any trace of something going wrong and thus somehow causing the machine to reboot rather than shutdown. powercfg /lastwake gives no information at all and Event Viewer lists nothing under Critical or Errors that could be a cause.

Most of the time though, the computer will just shut down as it should, but this random rebooting is getting very irritating. If I shut down the computer again after it has restarted (when I told it to Shut Down), it will then Shut Down as it should.

Something I should note however, when I shut down the computer, I do so through Classic Shell Start Menu's Shut Down button. Everytime these random reboot occur, I have shut the computer down via Classic Shell Start Me... Read more

I often have problems shutting down my computer properly, and I can't seem to track down the exact cause for the issue.

It happens every few weeks: once in a while I will attempt to shutdown my computer and everything seems to go just fine - except for the fact that the power button is still lit at which point I'm forced to hold that button down until the computer shuts down completely. As I said this happens every few weeks (although it seems to be happening more frequently as of late), and I've tried everything I can think of to resolve the issue - multiple virus scans report nothing suspicious, SFC and CHKDSK scans are fine, I've turned off hybrid shutdown (and gone through the power settings as well)... I don't get it.

What is interesting though is the fact that a TPM error precedes every instance of this problem. Whenever I go through my event viewer after the problem occurs, I will find an error telling me that "the device driver for the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) encountered a non-recoverable error in the TPM hardware, which prevents TPM services (such as data encryption) from being used.

Every. Single. Time.

Without fail. It could be 30 minutes before the problem, it could be several hours. But it ALWAYS precedes the shutdown problem. At this point I've taken to checking the event viewer every half hour because I know that if I spot that TPM error, then BANG - I'm going have a problem shutting down the computer later.

I'm having a problem with my laptop. I run Windows 7 Professional 64bit on it. An hour and a half ago I shut down my computer and Windows installed an update, but I stuck around because I wanted my computer off and I know that the computer restarts itself after installing an update. The computer restarted itself and configured the update, but when I chose to shut down the computer it actually restarted itself. I've tried shutting it down several times, but every time it starts right back up. I've run a virus scan, the Power troubleshooter, disabled automatic restart upon System failure, and searched Google and Windows help files for similar-sounding problems, all to no effect. My attempts to fix the issue so far represent the extent of my comfort in dealing with computer issues by myself, so I found this forum and decided to ask for some help. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Computer restarts instead of shutting down after Windows Update.

Are you shutting the computer down by pressing the power button or by using the start > shutdown method?
If it is by pressing the power button, have a check to see what the power button is set to do when pressed.
(Control panel > Hardware and Sound > Power options > Choose What the power buttons do)

If this isn't the case,
I've experienced this problem and fixed it by clearing the CMOS. (Removing the CMOS battery, leaving for 10 seconds, then placing it back in.)

For some time now I've been plagued with messages regarding having to shutdown the computer to install 'important updates.' The computer says it's installing the updates and needs to shut down which takes for ever. It then reopens to say 'Updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes' It then goes automatically to 'Switching off...installing updates.' After an age it reappears with 'The user profile service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.'

However this just happened to me in the middle of a forums post being done on his PC. The PC just shut down without warning and started installing a single Update.

I am wary to set his Updates from Automatic to Manual install since he may let them pile up. Is there anything I can do to assure he'll get the normal warning popup from System Tray?

Greetings,

I built my comp (with the help of several fine people on this forum) in July. Bought a new copy of Win7-64bit and everything has been running great. Lately, everytime I shut down it says it needs to install updates and it goes through 23 installations. I let it do it's thing and the next day is the same thing, installing updates 1 of 23. I've watched it and it does go through all 23 (can't see any details) and then shuts down like it should.

Anyone ever hear of this occurrence and if so, any tips? Thank you very much.

ok, I looked at the updated, and most of them are for XP??? Copied the details of one of them below and of course all of the XP upates failed, now after more digging, I did install Microsoft Office XP on my system as I didn't really want to buy a new office suite, but I looking at the update list, almost all of them refer to powerpoint or office or something.

About 18 months ago I replaced the factory installed 40 GB HD, with a slightly larger 60 GB Seagate HD. At the time, I was planning to do a dual boot with linux partition being the dominant one, but knew I might have to use WinXP at some point. Initially I set it up with about 6 GB for the WinXP, a "swap" drive and about 25 GB for the linux partition. Well, I'm not sure about the last part, it's been awhile now, so it could have been more (I know I left some unallocated/free space - but I don't think it was 20-25 GB). Well, everything was working fine for a while (with the dual boot), but since I couldn't find the appropriate drivers for the modem (and other important devices), I ended up using the winXP partition as my primary one. After some time, I believe the mbr was messed up somehow, because I didn't get to choose which partition I wanted to log into.

My computer keeps turning back on immediately after shutting down.  I have tried many fixes but none of them are working.
I went to the command prompt window and typed in "powercfg -lastwake", it didn't find anything.  I also typed in "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed".  It only displayed NONE.  I checked if there were any wake timers active, but there aren't any.  I've made it so that my mouse, keyboard and network adapter can't wake the computer.  I also had a look through the BIOS, and it doesn't look like wake on lan is active.
I have no idea what to do.  Please help!
My specs are:
motherboard: Asus Sabertooth 990fx r2.0
Processor: amd fx-8350
Ram: 16gb
OS: windows 8.1 64 bit
If any additional specs are required, let me know. Thank you in advance.

Answer:Computer turns back on immediately after shutting down, windows 8.1

Thanks anyway!

My PC is a joke. It keeps shutting down unexpectedly and restarts again. This is been happening since around 7 to 8 o'clock this morning. Is there any way to fix this problem?
 

Answer:Solved: Windows XP keeps shutting down and turning on my computer without warning.

Hi, it could be for many reasons - check that the fans are clean of dust etc.
It could be overheating - faulty Ram etc.

If you feel able to..
Check inside the Pc.

Turn the Pc off - some say leave the plug in to maintain the earth.
But I'd remove the plug from the wall.
Once you have opened the case.
Touch the metal case to discharge any static.

Remove any dust - do not use a vacumm cleaner, too much static.
Check that all fans are free of dust and will rotate.

Remove Ram - Video cards etc and then Reseat in the slots.
But first - clean the copper connections of the Ram - Video cards with a pencil eraser.
If more than one Ram stick - use just one stick at a time installed in your Pc, as a test.

Check and post

Win 8 ....
hello - yesterday wsn't the first occurrence: - after installing update(10) that require a 'restart' the process of 'installing' starts after the restart takes place - i see the warning not to shut-down the computer, see the percentage of installation and then all goes black at about 16%!! Tower is showing computer still 'on' but screen goes into 'sleep'.
i wait it out.
come back to computer to find still in 'stall' (what i call it)..
I Have 'shut-down' option set to ''turn off computer if i press the on/off button on the tower;
So i try that ! no response !! it won't shut down!
- i wait and wait several hours and finally the shut-down option responded .... and the installation of the 10 updates resumed.
This incident(s) is one of the reasons i'm hesitant to try installing Win 8.1....
Any ideas appreciated !

Answer:when shutting down to install updates-it stalls!

It's not that unusual, just few days ago I had a laptop with XP sit and simmer 36 hrs. before all the updates were done. Small, almost full HDD with bad case of fragmentation was the cause. Might also be a good idea to have "High performance set for "Never sleep" mode.

I have it plugged in and a charged battery too.It started with a flash program, called BIOS upgrade flash or something.It seemed to do some stuff, then it went on to turn off the computer (maybe to restart it).But it stayed to Windows' screen saying "Windows is shutting down".It's there for about 8 hours now and I am afraid to turn it off.What should I do? I must go to work now but I'll return later.thanks

There are two new updates (one for Skype desktop and one for Windows Framework 4.5.2-4.5.1 is already on the computer) that will not load. Of course, i'd like help with getting them to load, but until that time, the problem is that every time I go to put the computer to Sleep, I don't get Sleep in the field of "What do you want your computer to do," instead I get "Install Updates and Shut Down." Until these updates appeared, the field would always self-select Sleep. How can I hide or get rid of these updates (until I learn how to load them) so that I can go directly to Sleep and not have to scroll the field to Sleep?

Answer:Non-loading updates interfere with shutting down or going to Sleep?

When you open Windows Updates and download them, let it download the updates it won't install, then right click each each update and select "Hide Update,"  it should look like this:

In order for Windows Updates to prevent you from continuing to ask for them, probably best to download the updates manually - Windows Framework shouldn't be a very hard google search for a download link and as for Skype - well you might have to re-download the program if they don't have the option to download updates individually. 
 
But, better that than to have Windows Updates constantly asking you to install updates that won't install.

As far as .NET is concerned, your best bet is probably to remove the existing installations completely first using Aaron Stebner's Cleanup tool, then install the 4.5.2 version with a clean base.

Answer:How come when my windows rt 8 computer updates, i have to refresh my computer hook it to the wifi?

I suspect somewhere in there is an update that messes with your Wi-Fi.
Perhaps by installing them in batches and narrowing it down to what appears to be the culprit, you can avoid that update.

I've seen topics that dance all around this, but never exactly match my scenario.  I have Win 7 computers on a domain that have been accessing older network shares since they were set up 2-4 years ago.  In the last few weeks, one very critical PC
cannot access an older (Server 2003) share over the network, though other Win 7 computers can.  I worked on it this issue for 3 weeks, including reading and trying everything in every post that resembles this problem.  None of it worked.  I
bought a brand new Win 7 64 bit PC and set it up 1.5 weeks ago.  It accessed the older shares with no problems.  After being on vacation a few days I booted up the PC to continue the deployment and it starting finishing up Windows updates installation.
 After that was done I could NOT ACCESS THE OLDER SHARES!

It is obviously an update causing this and it has done it on a brand new computer which worked last week and did not work after Windows Updates were installed.  SO, here's MY question:  Does anyone at Microsoft or elsewhere have a clue as to which
update would have caused this?  The updates were downloaded on 7/1/16 and finished installing today (7/13/16) after being shut down for a week.

This is crazy!  Please help!

I have checked settings for sleep mode schedule, that is not the problem. When I try to re-start to install updates, it gets up to 98% then says it can't install updates and then uninstalls the updates. I've run the diagnostic program from Microsoft and it said it fixed several errors but still would not install updates. I cannot get an error code because there is no update history. I cannot revert to windows 7 because the upgrade occurred more than 10 days ago. I looked for an option to re-install Windows 10 and did not find one. Unless someone out there has a solution I will have to reset the computer and hope to get Windows 7 back that way.

I am running XP Home Edition on my Dell 2400 Series PC.

My computer is running very slow (no Malware/Spyware/Viruses present) ever since the addition of a new larger hard drive. I replaced a 40gb drive (which was acting as my secondary drive for storage , etc. and was also the home of my Windows swap file) with a new 200gb drive (which also houses my Windows swap file).

Ever since then, the computer is running really slow and my windows updates (which I require approval of before install) have been ongoing for weeks (they are new ones every day). Is it possible that my windows update files and/or SP2 files were on that older 40gb drive (reformatted to use as an external backup) and thus my PC is grossly out of date from a security standpoint?

One final item.....the hard drive light always seems to be on (not necessarily blinking but always on) since the new drive installation.
Any help would be appreciated...

Answer:Windows Updates & Slow Computer

If you go to Windows Update and select Custom instead of Express, it will allow you to download almost every Update at one time.
Go to the Task Manger and select Performance. Monitor this tab to see which process may be hoarding your System Resources.
You can also check the Event Viewer to see if there are Conflicts or Error messages. The Event Viewer is located in the Administrative Tools.

Ran Windows Updates yesterday morning.  It created several software problems (via Flash Player conflict) so I decided to do a system restore from the restore point created just before (I think?) the updates were installed.  Big mistake.
 
When the computer rebooted, there was an error message from boot manager saying 'the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible'.
 
I booted from the Windows 7 install disc and ran the startup repair. It says it 'can't fix the problem automatically'.
 
Tried these solutions I found on various web sites:
 
Ran bootrec/fixboot with command prompt, said it was successful. Didn't help.
 
Tried to reboot with what I believe is the recovery drive (I'm no computer expert) and got this error message: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt - windows\system32\winload.exe
 
Went into diskpart via command prompt to make sure all (four) hard drives are active--it says all are 'healthy'
 
Noticed after rebooting from the install disc that the C drive with Windows on is now the F drive and one of the other internal hard drives (formerly F) is now C. I used command prompts to rename them correctly, tried to reboot, no change. Upon rebooting from the install disc, the letters are incorrect again. Not sure this makes any difference but does seem weird.

Answer:Computer won't boot after Windows 7 updates

System manufacturer and model?
 
I suspect...that you have damaged your system files or NTFS beyond the point of repair using Win 7 tools...or you have a hardware problem (hard drive).  My experience with using the Win 7 startup repair tool is that it either works or doesn't work...when it doesn't work, I clean install.
 
But others here have more experience/knowledge, so let's see what others may contribute.

Have a friend's computer that started Windows Updates and got to 13 of 17 and won't go any farther.

Tried re-starting (I know they say not to) and it gets to 13 and won't go any further.

Also can't start it in Safe Mode.

What next?

Answer:Computer stuck 13 of 17 Windows updates

Maybe this: Fix the problem with Microsoft Windows Update that is not working

And this: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If all else fails, download and install each remaining update manually. Several months ago, I had one W7 patch that would extract its files and then could not find them??? I had to point the installer to the files that it said it could not find 3 times during the install.

I have tried lots of time to download windows updates, when I go to the updates page all I get is:

Checking for the latest version of the Windows Update software...

Depending on your connection speed, this might take a minute. During this time, you may receive one or more security warnings. Review each security warning to ensure that the content is signed by Microsoft, and then click Install or Yes to install the software.

and that is where it stops. It will not go any further. Page says 'done'. I have let is sit for hours and still nothing.

When I go to Control Panel and click on 'Windows Firewall' the message I get is: Due to an unidentified problem, Windows cannot display Windows Firewall settings.

I am not sure if this is part of the problem or not.
I have recently done a Compaq System Recovery, but not a destructive recovery, just to restore the original files that were loaded when machine was new. Since then I have not been able to download windows updates. Everything else seems to work fine. If anyone has any answers I would be very grateful.

My computer is Compaq Presario P8654T S3000T (OEM) running window XP, 2.40 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4, 512 kilobyte memory, on a cable modem.
 

Answer:Windows updates will not download to computer

This PC has had problems for a few months now, and I hardly use it anymore.

Besides getting the red "X" at the bottom toolbar telling me that spyware was detected and I have to use special software to "pervent" further infection, viruses seem to be running rampant and things don't work appropriately. I'm also getting popups galore.

My main problem now is this:

I can't get the PC to get updates, included the necessary 10/08 one for malicious software. I visited the Windows UPdate site and I get this:

------------------------
The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows services is not running:

Automatic Updates (allows the site to find, download and install high-priority updates for your computer)
Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) (helps updates download more quickly and without problems if the download process is interrupted)
Event Log (keeps a record of updating activities to help with troubleshooting, if needed)
To make sure these services are running:
1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Type services.msc and then click OK.
3. In the list of services, double-click on Automatic Updates and then click Properties.
4. In the Startup type list, select Automatic and click Apply.
5. Verify that the Service status is started, if the Service Status is Stopped click on the Start Button.
