How do I stop repeated updates of same Security Update

Question: How do I stop repeated updates of same Security Update

Hi..

How can I stop the Security Update identified below from repeatedly updating my computer? This Security Update is installed each time I start my computer. I suspect it?s install each time I start my computer is responsible for my poor start up performance (i.e. long time required to start my computer)..

Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 for x64-based systems (KB954430)

According to Update History the status is successful each time this Security Update is installed..

I?m using Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with Service Pack 1

Thanks,
Bill?

Preferred Solution: How do I stop repeated updates of same Security 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.)

Answer: How do I stop repeated updates of same Security Update

Hello Bill, and welcome to Seven Forums.

One quick method would be to hide the update to prevent it from being available to be installed.

Answer:Repeated Failed Security Updates

Hi ladycruiserride. If you go into Control Panel and then click on Troubleshooting a page will open showing a range of 5 sections, each offering to troubleshoot and repair a selection of items. The last section of the 5 is named System & Security and the first item in that section is 'Fix Problems with Windows Update'. Simply click on that and a Wizard will take you through the procedure. I recently had Update problems and running this solved things for me.
Good luck,
Norman.

Hi,

I have been unable to use Windows Update (it keeps checking for updates and then eventually fails with error code 8024402F) or download certain files for a while. I first thought that it was a Windows Update issue and tried a bunch of fixes but to no avail. However, I figured something was amiss when I couldn't download security tools and certain specific software. Examples include Malwarebytes definition updates, Trend House Call installer, Microsoft Malicious Tool Remover installer, Microsoft FixIt installers, Adobe Reader among others. To cut a long story short, Malwarebytes detected three items (Malware.Packer.Gen, Trojan.Downloader,and Trojan.Bancos) and removed them. However, I still could not get Windows Updates to work. I then tried to reset the Hosts files but this didn't help either. By now I have tried every fix that I could find online including resetting Hosts files, temporarily changing DNS server addresses, disabling and enabling Windows Firewall, disabling and re-installing Microsoft Security Essentials etc etc but nothing works. I then asked for help at another forum and ran through a range of troubleshooting steps that didn't work either (I should obviously have come here first!). Here is the link to that entire exchange in case it is of help. I have also run through all the Microsoft fixes for Windows Update issues (spread across many KB articles) and all the steps in this article. I would greatly appreciate any leads in solving this!

I have a problem with windows 10 and wish that someone
with more experience can help me understad if what i'm
going to ask is possible:

i would like to use windows (10 pro) as a stable system to
work on my projects, so i was using windows 10 1607
and had set the "defer upgrades" to avoid feature upgrades.
I do not want to stop security/fix updates, only stop
system changing upgrades.

In spite of the "defer upgrades" settings the system
upgraded to 1703 creative update and i was not able
anymore to connect to the system remotely so i had
several problems to understand what was goind on and
to restore connectivity.

Is it possible to stop this behavior and maintain
a stable windows 10 version untill it is supported
(namely untill it receive security uptates)?

So help me understand if windows 10 pro is trustworthy
or just a crippled OS and i may need windows 10 enterprise
to do what i need without having the OS fighting back
the system settings i choose to set.

P.S. i'm not a windows twearker messing with
regedit etc, i'm hoping there is a simple way
to do this because if i have to fight against
what it seems to me windows 10 is supposed to do (upgrade itself),
i'm not going to do that but i'll replace it instead.

So to whom have more windows 10 insights
i'm i doomed or is there a way to avoid upgrades?

thanks.

Answer:How to stop windows 10 Upgrades (not security updates)

Windows as a service is designed to continuously evolve, with two planned Feature Updates each year, you can defer updates on the "pro" version for up to 12 months.

Each new feature build will be supported for a maximum of Two years

There is no guarantee that a version over two years old will be supported with any updates including security updates, (the update to the next Feature version resets the support clock for that version to two years)

There is a special version of the Enterprise SKU that is known as the Long Term Service Branch [LTSB], which reverts to the old ten Year security update model of previous Windows versions. ( this 1607 LTSB is also being used to allow those users that are caught by the Intel Decision to stop support for certain CPU Chipsets)

This would I think meet your requirements but there is a major issue. As far as I am aware, this is not available directly to individuals but only to companies, governments Etc under the Volume Licence System.

I think the latest LTSB was 1607 and there may be another in the next two or three releases. This may be available with an MSDN subscription but obviously that will cost considerably more than following the Planned update regime (Free)

Edit

You may also see the LTSB identified as CBB, ( Current Branch for Business).

Hi.
Thank you for all your support and security updates for my two Surface RTs. 
They?re great and I don?t want to see them go.  A quick aside? It would be nice for my two Surface RTs and me, if Microsoft had a change of heart and decided to port Windows 10 RT with Office RT for Surface RT and get a few
more years support.  Anyway.
Today one of my Surface RT 8.1 provided the option on shut down, to update and restart, which I did. 
It said it was installing 4 updates.  When rebooted, I went to view update history and found two failed updates and three successful ones for a total of five. 
The first one in the list that failed is this one here below.



Then to get more information, I clicked the link shown there for 4048958 to learn more. 
That took me to the Microsoft Security Update Guide, where I searched for 4048958 and was provide two links for RT 8.1. 
Both links, one for IE11 and one for RT 8.1, go to the KB 4048958 article, which says to get more information, go to the Security Update Guide, which of course takes one back to the KB. 
Not very informative loop I guess.
The second update that is on the list above showing as failed, is the one for Adobe to prevent remote code execution. 
When I am in Windows Update and double-click the failed entry for Adobe, and then click the link for more information, it takes me to a URL that does not show a KB number and provides a link for more i... Read more

This is just a heads-up that after security update KB957097, my wireless stopped working.

I have a Belkin N-Wireless Router, and I use WPA-PSK (TKIP) security.

Specifically, I got 2 message balloons on my wireless connectivity icon (bottom right tray in XP).

1. windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network

2. this connection has limited or no connectivity
After I uninstalled that security update (after 2 hours of knocking my head), it started working fine.
 

Answer:Solved: Security Update KB957097 causes wireless to stop working

An update.

The earlier solution only worked for a short while. The same problems re-started after a day or so.

Apparently something called a cryptoservice in my computer had gotten corrupted.

I finally solved it by doing the following:
Go into safe mode.
Start a cmd window.

Enter the following:
net stop cryptsvc
ren %systemroot%\System32\Catroot2 oldcatroot2
peaceout.

My daughter subscribes to several on line publications- for example Gardeners world. About 6 in all
Each week she will get an mail with a link to the latest issue.
Of late she has found this clutch of mails keep repeating- over and over again.
At the latest input the same six rolled up to a total of 600 lines.
Whats causes this - Her machine - The server or what?
and how can the problem be resolved?

Answer:many repeated emails - how to stop

It could be several things. Is it POP mail? A setting in the account in email client (Outlook? Thunderbird? or ?) Or it could be her virus scanning interrupting the down/receive - the mail scanning feature. It could be a corrupt file in mail client (the file that keeps a record of which have already been downloaded)
Is it only from these six senders or is it all of emails?
I suggest as a short term remedy to login to Webmail server and tidy folders up there deleting emails not needed any more.

... Framework, Version 1.0 Service Pack 3 (KB928367)

This is quite frustrating, really. This update will simply not install and when it has failed to do so it repeatedly informs me that I need to install it.

I don't know what to do, do you?

(I noticed a similar thread in this forum but it refers to a different update so I thought I'd make a new one).

Answer:"The following updates were not installed: Security Update for Microsoft .NET ...

I am assuming that you have administrative privileges and that you have enough disk space. Also, you might check to make sure that a spyware/anti-virus program is not blocking the install.

How are you updating? clicking the icon in the sys-tool bar? if so, then open up IE, and click Tools, then windows update, try using that instead.

If this doesn't work, then try and find a Manual update.

Note this is just basically repeating what I said in another forum, but it is a good start.

Hey Guys!
The BF's parents apparently think I'm a computer whiz kid or something but they want me to fix their computer and I'm gonna need help on this one.

The story is that Supposedly a big storm was going to hit, so they tried to shut down the computer but it froze. In a hurry, they just plug-pulled. Apparently when they next turned it on the screen stating that they improperly shut down the computer popped up, and Safe Mode, Last System Restore Point, or Normal Boot-up options were made available as usual.

Well, now, the Blue Screen of Death appears if You choose any other option aside from last system restore point. The Screen says:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try chaging video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Okay, firstly I couldn't find where to post this, as my laptop is running Vista Service Pack 2, so I posted here instead (sorry if it's an inconvenience). Anyway, my laptop keeps having the blue screen error, and when I turn it off and on again it generally restarts fine. But generally, within 4-6hours, it does it again. It's becoming very irritating.

When I log back on, it says "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" and this is the box it gives:

Question: Repeated Updates

I just finished installing "Security Update for .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 on Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB2518864)" and "Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 on Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB2572073)" but now it keeps popping up asking me to download and install the updates again.

Using Windows 7 x64. For several months now I have been hiding windows updates related to IE 9 cumulative security updates. Windows Update would hang during the installation; the progress bar would get stuck at around 50% and I'd eventually have to reboot the machine. The machine would boot and try to continue the update, which would also hang. I'd have to power off the machine and when it restarted, it would roll back the failed update. Sometimes in the course of doing this my machine would end up with Aero turned off and I'd have to get that re-enabled, or restore from a restore point. All other Windows updates work fine. I tried all sorts of things to get past this, from running FixIt for Windows Update to uninstalling IE 9 (so that I could try to install it cleanly; no luck, this too hung) without success. So I finally hid the update.

Since, then however, more IE 9 security updates have appeared and from time to time I try to install them with the same results: hang, reboot, hide the update. Last night I tried installing the IE 10 preview, figuring it would supersede IE 9 and I'd be rid of the issue. No soap; IE 10 wouldn't install.

I'm at the point where this has gone beyond annoying and I'm starting to worry about not having these security updates. I always keep my machine updated religiously via Windows Update and have never seen such an issue before.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi - I'm new here, and I'm not very tech savvy, so please bear with me I'm posting here because I couldn't find anywhere else to turn ><

So basically, my family computer has become unusable after I ran VundoBeGone as a last-ditch effort to get rid of Virtumonde. I knew that the STOP error was "normal", but after restarting several times and finally just letting it sit for a while, the computer was never able to recover from it. The STOP error happened even when I put it in safe mode. I read that VundoBeGone is supposed to put a log on the desktop at some point after rebooting from the STOP error, but like I said the STOP error happens every time I reboot. I really, really don't know what to do now - please help!!!

--I know this is supposed to be for HijackThis logs, but yeah...in case this is of any use to anyone: the computer is an older Dell running on Windows XP Home Edition SP3, has three profiles, and the STOP error specifically said "STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error} The windows logon process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000005 (0x00000000 0x00000000) The system has been shut down." --

I've received multiple occurances of 'Updates available' for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 1.1 Service Pack 1 (KB928366) for the past several days.

I have initiated the installation both while signed on and when prompted as I power off my HP Pavillion dv9000 notebook.

Ususally the 'update' is successful, but sometimes it failed (no reason given). Regardless, the prompt that an 'update is ready' (for the same item) reappears within a few minutes following the installation.

My Trend Micro virus / firewall software warns of 'suspicious changes' which I have allowed.

My OS is Windows XP, service pack 2.

My questions:
Why does the same update repeat after it has been installed?
Do I have a virus or other malware in play?
For what purposes is the .NET Framework required? (so that I may determine if I need the update)

If there are links to other information sites from which I can research this issue, please advise also.

Thanks.

Answer:Repeated .NET updates (KB928366) - is this real?

Once you are absolutely sure that you have this update you may try this. Go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and select CUSTOM scan then uncheck all updates that have been offered to you or that you have already installed, then "Hide" them by selecting "Don't Show Me This Update Again".

I have no idea why the update repeats itself after it's been installed but you could open a free Support Incident Report from here https://support.microsoft.com/common...h=1&gprid=6527.

I don't think you have a virus or malware but you should make a habit of updating and scanning your computer on a weekly basis. Always make sure your AV, spyware/malware, and other utilities have the latest downloads before scanning.

This may answer your last question http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms994336.aspx.

Happy computing!!

Hi,
Have been getting the above request each time I contact the net , but I have failed to install the update (KB928365). Found help for this in one of your previous threads:89939 and tried all the suggestions,but none worked. I have done full maintainance schedule with all updated programs(there is no problem updating these) I have done HijackThis Scan and have noticed nothing different. Done full Virus scan-no threats, but the following was listed:

shell32.dll change C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll
ntoskrnl32.dll change C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntoskrnl32.dll.
When i finished the scan these showed up as changed but when I re started my computer again and completed Virus Scan-sane result back again. I am wondering is this part of the above problem or is it a seperate prob.Specs:WinXP2, AVGVirus Scanner, Windows Firewall, IE6.0, RAM768, Hope someone can Help. Boneyeye

Hi everyone,

I'm running Windows 7 on an HP laptop with automatic Windows updates enabled. But I'm puzzled. For the past few days, each and every computer session has (apparently) done one automatic Windows update when I have powered the computer down.

I'm starting to wonder whether it is attempting to do the same update each time but failing for some reason. No message is given when the update is being done - it just shows the usual "do not switch off..." message while the update is in progress, following by the usual "shutting down" message.

Aside from this, the computer is functioning perfectly normally. So maybe I'm worrying over nothing but I'd like to know for sure. Have Microsoft been issuing a whole stream of Windows updates on a drip-feed basis during the past few days? If not, can anyone suggest why my computer seems to be in some kind of a loop with this update and is there anything I can do to resolve it?

Answer:Repeated Windows updates - is this a problem?

There have been quite a few updates recently, at least for me (German Windows edition).
But I've set the updates to manual, so I can always check what type of update it is.

Otherwise, if you are able to confirm they have installed correctly then maybe the other suggestion posted there may be an option.

I install Win7 updates manually upon notification - Automatic Updates is off. I always install "important updates"; therein lies the problem with these two. If I check Windows Updates via:

Control Panel > Programs and Features > View Installed Updates

they do not show, and therefore cannot be uninstalled via the usual method.

In addition, I have run this command:

wmic qfe list brief /format:htable > "%USERPROFILE%\hotfix.html"

which lists all updates in the "hotfix.html" file in the USERS directory; neither update appears there either.

When the Updates icon shows in the Notification area (lower right part of screen - rightmost section of tool bar), however, the "Your Update History" link shows that the above 2 updates have been installed three times each; in addition, both of them are shown as "important updates" ready to be installed - again!

To remove all prior versions, I tried commands from the command prompt (which I ran as administrator):

wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:3032359 /quiet /norestart

wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:3021952 /quiet /norestart

to no effect at all.

When installing the updates, no errors occurred; no errors showed when I ran sfc /scannow as instructions for posting in this forum say, I received a message indicating no violations:

I've been offered the same 14 updates over and over. They fail to configure after reboot and are reverted. In the attached picture all show 800F0826 except for the one marked (that one is 80070005). I suspect permissions on the registry or filesystem are to blame.

I removed IE11 from my features a year ago when IE11 updates started to fail. I tried to add IE11 back,. but the updates still failed. I also tried turning IIS off in add remove features, but those got reverted.

Cleaned out Catroot2, CBS and WindowsUpdate.log in repair boot shell to get logs as clean and empty as possible. Not sure if that was a bad idea, but I got frustrated.
Reattempted update
Ran SubInACL* to grant access to the Adminstrators to registry and file system. Those logs are huge (3 GB plus and I don't have tools to parse them, plus I don't know where failure to set permissions are to be expected.
I ran latest SURT and got a clean CheckSUR log

I have an exactly one-year-old Asus notebook (X555DA) running Windows 10. A little more than a month ago my laptop after a restart was slow and certain pages and programs refused to launch, despite nothing abnormal appearing in Task Manager. I also started to have issues with booting. The problem went away after I reinstalled Windows.

Then the other night, while my wife and I were watching Netflix, the machine abruptly froze up. It wasn't totally frozen, but it was functionally unresponsive. Eventually I forced a shutdown. It restarted okay but moved very slowly, much like had happened a month ago. I tried to update the display adapter drivers (AMD Radeon R6), and got an abrupt/quiet restart. Boot-up stuck, and startup repair failed to fix the issue. I was able to do a system restore back a number of days, and despite a slow start I had a lot of functionality back; but there was a bit of stuttering and Google Chrome completely refused to launch. I tried to update the graphics driver again, or uninstall it, and the same thing happened as before. It happened again when I tried to update an audio driver (Conexant), but not several others. Finally I reinstalled Windows. It came up quickly, and for a few minutes everything looked fine. Then presto, I got a black screen, and the cycle was started over again. Naturally, one of the first things Windows did after the reinstall was run drivers updates, so I'm not c... Read more

Since installing the latest Adobe Flash Player a couple of days ago I've been plagued by an IE Security Warning asking if I want to install Adobe Flash Player. It seems to be limited to certain websites and regardless of whether I delete it or reply "no" it bounces back several times in quick succession.
There are further options - "always install" , "never install" or "ask every time" If I select "Never" will this preclude any future updates that I might want?
How can I stop this particular popup? I'm using IE with XP.

Answer:Clear popup repeated IE Security Warning

Why not just say Yes, to let it install, then that should be the end of it: at least until the next update.

I had previously posted my thread on XP support but was recommended to this forum. You can go to the original thread on this link http://www.techsupportforum.com/f10/repeated-shutdowns-and-problems-with-computer-260100.html.

The original post:
To begin with, before any major problems started, the computer continually restarted itself the first time the computer is turned on but after the first, sometimes 2nd restart. Computer works fine.

However, last night I went to a site that asked me to download an update for Video ActiveX. I continued (bad choice I know) and McAffee told me that it had automatically removed a trojan. Computer restarted itself. AntiSpyCheck was installed and so was Security Toolbar 7.1. The computer hasn't stopped restarted since then. Computer restarts whenever, McAffee virus scan starts, Disk clean up starts, try to delete browsing history, using add/remove program from control panels, and trying to use Ad-Aware. It also restarts regardless if the computer is simply left on too long.

I know the steps before posting told me not to remove anything but I happened to before I arrived at this forum. I went into safe mode and turned off automatic restart, and deleted AntiSpyCheck's program from the C: Program files. I also deleted the temp files from the local settings from each user.

Afterwards, BSOD occurs occasionally when i use the above mentioned programs. Otherwise, it is just a black screen and nothing happens. BSOD states that a driver h... Read more

Win 10 Pro machine off for a few days. I have delayed the Fall update for 365 days as of 12/17 though I will eventually get around to installing it. I believe I know that the Meltdown/ Spectre update is non negotiable. With win 7 it was easy to disable all updates. While not good security policy I went at times for over a year without installing any cum. roll ups. This morning after booting I noticed constant disk activity and I thought uh-oh here comes the Meltdown/ Spectre update. Sure enough my only option at shutdown was to basically install. (1) What would have happened if I had just deleted the SoftwareDistribution folder assuming I was able to? Could that have caused all sorts of problems at boot up since the system was apparently going to be looking for the update it told me that it had just downloaded and was going to install at shutdown or next boot. (2) Did MS do away the CMD prompt trick "net stop wuauserv" etc. to stop updates.

https://www.itechtics.com/disable-by...wn-windows-10/

I assume if that means was available I would have to do it again if it got enabled and of course if I had deleted the SoftwareDistribution folder next time with an Internet connection it would download all over again. So I just went ahead and let it install:2017-12 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4053580) successfully installed on 01.12.2018

Question: Repeated update

For the past several days, I have been seeing what is apparently the same Windows update each time I shut down my computer. As soon as I power down, the screen says it is installing update 1 of 4 and it apparently completes the installation and shuts down normally. The next time I boot, it takes up to 20 minutes for the Windows splash screen to close and then I see a screen telling me that Windows is configuring 1 of 4 updates and not to shut the machine off. This message stays at 0% for several minutes than then finally enters my login screen.

I have swept my system for malware and emptied the User/App Data/Temp folder with no change.

Anyone know what might be going on here?

Answer:Repeated update

* We need the KB number to know what update you refer to.

* Have you checked in Event Viewer ?
Start - Event Viewer - Windows Logs - System & Application.
Check for any red error messages to do with this problem.

*Clean out yet again App data / local / temp.
Start - Run - type in %temp% - ok - organize - select all - organize - delete { note you may be asked to skip some - that is ok}

* Have you a System Restore point you can roll back to prior to this glitch with the update?
If so this could be worth trying.

* Re your update settings -
I suggest you change them to notify you but let you choose to download.
Do a few at a time only. {Tedious, but allows you to monitor for any problems.}

* Always make sure you have a current system restore point prior to downloading anything.

Hello, I am new to this forum
 
A person responded to my thread in the Symantec forum ( I have Norton security suite ) and directed me to post in this thread I have read the preparation guide carefully and will try to explain as honestly and accurately as I can. As my first post in this forums and also as a technical newbie in the field of computers I hope you will excuse my poor "language" .
 
I don't recall precisely in what order the events happened and I will try my best to retrace my steps up to the whole infection.
 
I woke up from a nap and turned on my computer, then started browsing an adult site, ( hehehe ) booted my mel0n player ( a Korean iTunes of sorts to download music ) and logged into Steam to play CSGO. For some reason a file named goty.dll ( it might have been goty7.dll not sure... ) popped up in my Norton community thingy (which also said the file was safe -_-;; ) and I gave it no second thought. ( I had just woken up from a nap and was not fully there haha )
 
I don't remember in what particular order it happened, but it soon BSOD'd after I logged into Steam. When it restarted it prompted to either boot up startup repair or boot up normally. I didn't know what to do so I just chose the recommended option.

My problem is that MS keeps sending me update notices. I don't want these updates and they are blocking normal Win7 updates (ie have no regular updates since Office was installed and they used to be regular).

There might be a workaround for this. I think Microsoft ended support for .NET Framework 1.1 but I'm not absolutely sure. Go to the Microsoft Update Site in IE 8 and choose optional/custom updates (they can be selected individually or hidden if you don't want them). This will give you the option of installing software/updates for other Microsoft products besides Windows.

I tended to de-select .NET Framework 1.1 because of the ASP machine account it sets up and I always have to disable. In XP, I install .NET Framework 2, 3.5 and 4 (some of the apps I run require them). There will be security updates for .NET Framework once installed.

Answer:Repeated update failure from 1511 to creators

Hi, just wondering how it is you still have 1511? Is that indicative of some failure to update- some corruption perhaps? Or was Windows update deliberately disabled?

What is your actual build number?
(Windows key + X, winver)
- and the last update received + date
(see Update History)

Try these basic steps:
1. Please check your disk. Download and install Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) and post a screenshot of its GUI
to post a screenshot please use the Insert Image icon to the left of the video icon above your post

2. Check your file system
From an admin command prompt
[Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
chkdsk C: /F
Your PC will need to restart.
Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!
Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.

3. From an admin prompt run

and post the result

Then please post a screenshot of Disk Management

Sometimes a virus will stop you from downloading any security updates for any security program.

A few days ago there seemed to be a large update to Win10, after this update I noticed that I was asked to speak into my mic certain phrases in order that Cortana could understand me. I have never used it nor do I think I need to. That aside I also found that when I clicked 'Sleep' from either the login screen or the sleep button on my (Wired) keyboard my PC immediately re-started and went back to the login screen.
I have tried some suggestions to stop the restarts but so far without success. I do not want or need the PC to wake up at night to update itself, I would prefer to do all updating manually after its downloaded the updates, or at shutdown.

Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 for x64-based Systems

It has installed at least 30 times. Right after I install it, it pops right back up to install again. Why does it keep doing that if it installed successfully? Is it bad that it installed that many times? I don't understand. Will you help me please?
Thank you
Fay

There are no error messages with the windows updates.
I tried to upload the CBS.log but i keep getting this error message:
Server Error
500 - Internal server error.

There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.



How do I get the file to you?

Answer:Repeated windows update; no error message

The 500 error when attempting to upload is almost always because the file you're attempting to upload is too large - strip out the CBSPersist files until the resulting file is less than 8MB, then try again.

Make sure that you follow these instructions,...

in the event viewer, I've noted entire strings of adobe flash trying to check for updates, even though I've set it to not check for updates, given the problem plagued 11.2.202.235 release.

any ideas how I can actually disable flash's updater completely?

Hello,

As this Forum and the experts have been helpful in the past, I've decided to seek some help once again.

Firstly, my computer is very slow. I don't even have that much files or programs running but each time I use my computer it seems to get slower and slower. I don't know if this is attributed to the recent problems I have been experiencing but it could be interrelated.

Secondly, I am experiencing extremely frequent pop-ups from something called XP Security Tool. I don't even remember downloading this software?! The messages pop-up every few seconds, possibly with the view to enticing me to purchase some software. The messages take up things like ''Security Breach'', ''Threats Detected'', ''System Integrity Threats'', ''Virus Alerts'', ''Malware Intrusion!'', ''Tracking software found!'', ''Severe System Damage'' among others. It also seems to complicate matters for Windows Defender and a lot of my other programs which are no longer opening.

Please help..

Kind Regards,
Snake

Answer:Extremely Slow Computer and non-stop Security Breach pop-up messages from XP Security Tool..

Hello,I realize that I must wait and this is not an attempt to bump my problem so it is seen to but I am really desperate for some help as 80% of the applications that I wish to view (even the basic ones such as sound and date/time) brings up an ''Application not found'' error message. The message also states the following: C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exeI would really appreciate some help..Thanks again..

This is an inconvenient delay, not anything serious. Running Windows 7, if it makes a difference.

Issue: Microsoft Security Essentials auto-updates block Microsoft Updates until MSE is finished.

Description: I have Microsoft Update (or Windows Update, whichever it's known as in 7) set to automatically check for updates but not download or install without my approval. I do this so I can review what's being updated, (I'm a little wary of Microsoft putting an anti-piracy app in as a "critical" update in the last year or two). Anyways, when I boot up the computer, it checks for updates and alerts me of them.

However, Microsoft Security Essentials also auto-checks for updates upon boot, and if it has an update it will automatically being downloading and installing it in the background. Which is all well and good, except whenever that's happening it causes MU to "fail" updates until it's done updating. Thus, I have to remember to wait until the MSE update is done, then run the MU update.

Question: MSE definition updates are included under "Optional" updates in MU, is there a way to make MSE stop updating independent of MU so I can queue all the updates together? I feel like this would be the easiest way to prevent this annoyance. I don't see an option, and I'd rather put up with this annoyance if the only solution is to put all updates back into Microsoft's hands completely.
 

Answer:Microsoft Security Essentials updates blocking other windows updates

My understanding of MSE is it will check several times during the to make it has the latest updates. Most GOOD VA programs will do this as there are several releases daily for AV definitions. This is the only way you and your machine will be aware of these releases.

When some of these attacks happen, a definition is released, but as the infection is refined, the the definition must also be refined and/or improved. I use F-Prot on my machines, but I install MSE on the kids and grand kids machines. I have seen as many as 12 releases in one day from F-Prot, this is what is call" being on top of things".

So I would not want to rely on ME being the one to check several times daily on all of my machines to see if a new release has been made.

Its been doing most of these updates forever, when I go to shut it down it updates but when I wake up in the morning these updates are still not done... It's like they never finish. This happens every night for the past 6 months or so i'm getting tired of it now so i need some help. I've tried Reset Windows Update History that works for a week or so but they eventually come back.

This is really annoying, I own a Dell Latitude laptop since last year  and most of the times after a windows update it goes in BSOD or fails to start completely at random, mostly when  I am teaching  or I am on a train and need to work on  my laptop.
The laptop works one day and then the next it does not
Dell support has changed hard drive, RAMs, AC cord and device, to no avail. The computer passes all the  tests,
I am at loss. I need to have a reliable machine for work and I think Dell should put more effort in  supporting  their clients
I have  put my minidumps and reports here https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0qibbcf9rd1p99e/AAAHmMYbZdSgTUUW3esuvg1ha?dl=0
 I hope you can give relevant and final advice. Failing that, you will hear from my *** because the amount of work hours I am losing because of this is seriously damaging.
I look forward to hearing from you soon  with a reliable solution, as I am not the only one  having these  recurring problems.

Each update fails with message that something is already being downloaded. After update fails, the reload and attempt to install the same Feature Update try's again. Attempts keep trying in continuous mode.
Any attempt to install 1703 (direct download, USB version, ISO virtual file, or ISO copy to DV D) also fail with message that something is already being downloaded by Windows Update.

I've been trying to install version 1703 since it came out using all of the above methods. So far, nothing has worked.

Appreciate any advice. I've tried installs saving both data and apps, data only and full destructive install. Nothing has worked so far.

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool for Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 - August 2015 (KB890830) first appeared on my laptop running Windows 8 on 16th August, which I installed. It reappeared on 20th and 23rd. I hid it after that but each day since, a new update has appeared for a previous month successively; so, July, June, May. In desperation today, I restored the August update and installed it again. But it has not updated. Update history status displays 'Succeeded' for all dates, however. I seem to remember an issue at the time of its original installation that indicated all did not go well, which is why I installed it when it next reappeared. This is the second occasion on which the Malicious Software Removal Tool update has caused me a problem. I have created a new system restore entry and selected particular groups of updates or a single update since then so that I am in better control. I carried out System Restore on the previous occasion and wonder if that is what I must resort to once more and wonder whether other users have had similar issues?

I've been having problems with the same Windows Security Update appearing over and over again. I've tried many times to install the program, sometimes it says that the updates have been installed correctly, sometimes it says that they could not be installed. I also tried using Microsoft's "Fix It" program. I posted a thread here (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic458964.html), detailing my struggles. This problem is causing my computer's resources to be maxed out, forcing me to restart, as I cannot open anymore programs.

Hi Guys,
With the new Second Edition of Security Update Guide, it is difficult to follow all updates on all OS's. All KB articles are listed on all Servers version.
Before, with the Microsoft Security Bulletin, it was possible to properly approve required patches on all versions of OS's on (WSUS 3.0 SP2) on a single click. But now each KB should be approved one-by-one.
Do you have a remedy to this?

Hey all, I have a lenovo tower running windows 7 home premium service pack 1, all seems to be working great except when I go to do updates, every update is installed except this one nagging one that fails repeatedly.

The Update is Security Update KB2847927 and the error code is 0x80073712

When the update didn't install I hit help that took me to this page
Windows Update error 0x80073712

I ran the System File Checker tool as administrator in cmd prompt sfc /scannow when it finished it said Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
I tried again to install the update but it failed.

The next step was to download and install the System Update Readiness tool, installed that, said finished after about 5 mins (read that it appears to hang but just let it go) and yeah it seemed to install but after that the update still won't install fails with same error code.

That's where the microsoft page stops in terms of what to check or do, so now I come to the group hoping to find some answers.
