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 to stop Windows update from downloading updates when I update MSE

Have you tried setting Windows Update to not Download updates?
You could also set it to not check for updates while you are on holiday.
For MSE definitions, open MSE and update from there.

Windows Update says it's Downloading Updates. It has said that more than 30 minutes ago. And it's still 0 KB total, 0% complete. What's going on?

Answer:Windows Update says downloading updates but 0% after 1hr.

If you have a slow internet connection and/or you have just done a clean install and there are many updates to download, you'll just have to be patient. For example, I just did a recent clean install of Windows 8.0 and there were 62 updates to download. I'd wait a bit more and see what happens if any of my previous assumption apply.

Good luck.

I noticed last night that Windows Update had 55 updates to download.  Upon further inspection, it said updates were last downloaded sometime in November.
 
I have run the Windows Update Troubleshooting; it resolved some items, but not others (forgot to take a screenshot).  Now Windows Update says I have never even checked for updates.
 
Following the advice on other threads, I selected only 2 of the updates, then let it run overnight.  I woke up this morning to ZERO percent complete.  Ugh.
 
I'm able to view pages on Internet Explorer and Chrome without issue, and MalwareBytes was able to update just fine.  What next?

I've been having trouble with Windows Update recently:
* Three updates were stuck on downloading at 0%
* Rebooting the laptop resulted in it getting stuck at the "Getting things ready..." screen
The fix was actually pretty simple:
1. Reboot your computer
2. Open Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\Software Distribution
3. Open an elevated command prompt (Admin)
4. Run these two commands:
net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
5. Select all files in abovementioned folder and delete them
6. Make sure to empty the trash afterwards
7. Reboot and run Windows Update again
That way I was able to fix my Windows Update process that has been stuck for more than a week now. It immediately found many more updates to install, downloaded them and installed them just fine.

Hello,

My windows update has not been downloading/installing anything for a few weeks now, and is always using about 25 percent of my CPU. I just did a SCF scan and here are the results. It did say something was corrupt.

Here is the Log

https://www.dropbox.com/s/8j7lt40rcbebvm4/CBS.zip?dl=0
EDIT: I no longer have a problem. I was doing a bunch of things and then finally noticed that shutdown button had that little symbol that said it would install updates. I guess the reason why my WU download was always at 0kb was because the files were all there.

No more problems, however the scan still said something was corrupt, i would really appreciate it if someone looked through and see what i'm missing.

We have come across some of our LINX1010 devices that are downloading Windows Updates whilst they are on a mobile connection and not Wi-Fi.

I have had a look at trying to set the mobile data to be a metered connection to stop updates from going on whilst they are using mobile data but I can't see any options to do this, the only place I can find to setup a metered connection is under Wi-Fi settings.

Does anyone know of a way I can stop Windows Updates from going on whilst a device is on Mobile Data?

After that may be there was some sort of problem on the network and I could not download the other updates as my network was down at that time. so I disconnected from network and cancelled the downloads and shut down the computer. It normally installed the downloaded update. after that from today morning I am unable to download any updates. The network is fine, as I can browse the internet normally.

Why does it feel like a downgrade (except in game performance) just in general when I use windows 10? Also why do they keep turning on telemetry and the ****ing app stuff, and turning off the metered connection in a virulent manner thinking I won't notice it after a while? Am I being ****ed with?

Hi,

My question is: How can I determine if a downloadable application offered by a Web site is indeed safe (i.e., not malware or spam) before I actually do download and install the program?

Here are the gory details: I was curious about updates to my computer's BIOS and drivers, so I searched Google and turned up a web-site that offers a download that scans your computer to determine the current BIOS and driver versions, then provides a checklist showing which are up-to-date and which aren't. I ran it and it looks pretty neat (http:driveragent.com). It also provides links to download the updates. (Unfortunately, that costs about $30 for a year's subscription.) It's not just that I'm broke, it's also kind of scary.

My question may be foolish, especially since I downloaded and installed the program that does the checking without knowing anything about it. But I'd really like to know if there is a way to determine how safe a downloadable application is "before" actually downloading and installing it.

Many thanks. I look forward to hearing your advice.

Answer:Downloading BIOS update & driver updates safely

hello & welcome to TSF ,

driveragent is a very safe place to get your drivers from .....

i have a standing subscription with them for i do alot of repairs on a daily basis and trust them greatly and it is so much quicker & easier for me !!

now the best way you can get your drivers for free is to go to the home site of the manufacturer of the pc you have or the for the hardware that you have installed & to know the types of software you are using that require specific drivers like (Realtek AC/97audio & nVidia video & ATI chipsets & Intel & AMD ) and so many more that are used to run certain applications on a pc / there is quite a few that Microsoft offers thru the update site/plus many other trusted sites that you can get them from

but you need to know the specific driver that you need for you can get a driver that may look like the one that you need but rather is for a diifernt application and then you are then going to create a driver conflict and then you have issues on your pc and have to trouble shoot to find the issue

for you see some drivers for one hp will work on a dell , but then they wont for certain hp computers /then you have some dell drivers that will work on a hp or many differnt hps

then you have the differnce of having a laptop from a desktop

so the need to know is very inportant & can be time comsuming

I have Windows 7 SP1. From 161108 my Windows Update cannot find any new updates, it just searches for days and days. There are many posts on this subject, but I have not been able to solve the problem.
1. Is there a simple way to download and install updates manually (not using Windows Update)?
2. Would it be a very bad idea to stop updating Windows 7 from now on?

Answer:Downloading Windows Updates manually or stop updating

Hi:

Question #2:
Yes, it would be a VERY BAD idea to stop taking at least critical and important security updates from now on. MS now issues them all together in a monthly "roll-up", rather than individual updates. But there is a way to take only the "security" patches, instead of the combined security+performance patches.
Let's get your WU working first...

Question #1:
If WU is stuck on "checking for updates", you need to temporarily shut down that process/service in order to manually install the 2 most important patches that should fix it (3020369 and 3172605).

Let's try this:
IF NOT ALREADY DONE: Download and save, but do not run yet, the standalone installers for KB3020369 and KB3172605 for your architecture (32-bit or 64-bit).
Disconnect from the internet.
Disable the Windows Update service in both the applet itself ("never check for updates") AND from services.msc (change it to "manual" and STOP the service, then click "OK").
REBOOT
Run 3020369 and reboot.
Run 3172605 and reboot.
Go into services.msc and change WU back to "Automatic-delayed start" and start the service.
Reconnect to internet.
Change WU to "notify me, but let me choose".
Run a manual check for updates.
The concept is that you are going to install them from the standalone installers that you have downloaded locally to your computer, NOT via Windows Update.
So, if Windows Update is partially or fully enabled when yo... Read more

Answer:How to stop Windows Update hardware driver update

Go to Computer configuration=>Administrative Templates=>System=>Device installation=>Device Installation Restrictions=>Prevent installation of devices not described by other policy settings and enable it. This policy setting allows you to prevent the installation of devices that are not specifically described by any other policy setting. You can also delete or comment out HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate\UpdateHandlers\Driver. Another way is to use "Prevent installation of devices that match any of these device IDs". You can get the ID by going to Device Manager open the device properties go to the Details tab, click the little arrow under Property choose Hardware ID then copy and paste it to your GP policy. Another way is to choose "Prevent Installations of Device Using Drivers that Match These Device Setup Classes" and again use Device manager as above but choose Class GUID instead of Device ID then copy it and insert in the policy. Kind of convoluted way to stop the driver updates but it does work. Be aware this will stop driver installations even of USB sticks you haven't used before so you'll need to disable the policy if you do want to install new drivers for anything. Hope this helps

So, I don't really know any details of what malware I may have on my computer other than its symptoms and the likelihood that it came through utorrent (which has since been taken off the computer). Basically, the problem began manifesting itself with the BSOD in Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit. I think I have taken care of that problem. The remaining symptoms of the malware are that windows and windows defender cannot update itself. Also, I cannot download any type of anti-virus update software or even the programs themselves. The updates just say they were unsuccessful. When I attempt to do a manual install/update of anti-virus or windows updates I get a "cannot connect to webpage". Sometimes, I will be redirected from an anti-virus download site to a random unaffiliated site. When I attempt to run a free online virus scan, the update will not work and therefore there is no ability to scan.

Thanks for whatever help you can offer. Eric

This is the way I suggest :

Type in "net stop WuAuServ" without quotes > hit enter.
 
Type in "start %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore" without quotes > hit enter. A folder will come up. Don't close that black window.
 
Rename file "DataStore" to "DataStoreold" without quotes.
 
Go to that black screen, Type in "net Start WuAuServ" without quotes > hit Enter. After it finished you can close it.
 
Now your Windows Update logs will now cleared.

After installing Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade on a new seagate 320 g hdd on a Toshiba L300 Laptop with 32 bit that had Vista with latest SP on a 120gb hdd.then installing the sp1, the windows updater will not download and install updates. As it was I had to manually download the sp1 to a flash drive from my desktop and put it on the laptop. No problems there, but was hoping it would solve the Update problem, but didn't. I get the "Fail" error codes. 1. 80070570 and 2. 8007001F. I have 52+ KB updates and not one of them will download and install. Called MS help and for two days they had me try different things. They even took control of the computer and couldn't figure it out. I checked memory and did a chkdsk on the new HDD. In desperation for trouble shooting I put the Vista HHD back in and ran updates with no problems at all then I reinstalled the 320 G HHD. I didn't have a BSOD at all. But I downloaded and installed Microsoft Security Essentials and when I did that I would get the BSOD for what ever reason. I had a hard time getting it uninstalled because as soon as you would start windows, within a few seconds I would get the BSOD. When I finally got the Security Essentials uninstalled the BSOD Went away. Have no Idea what one had to do with the other. I just want to get the updater to work. Any Help

Which computer do you want to install Win 7 on?

Do you have license?

One license = 1 machine.

It's not easily doable - MSE actually does the downloads and installs itself, and the WU entries are a secondary tool.

Uninstall the update. Then find the update on MS's web-site and download
the manual installation package and install it from there. I have a couple
of installation packages that I had to do this for. It appears the Vista
updates are not as rock solid as the XP updates.

Every time i go to install any update, whether it be a security update, or a simple definition update for defender it ALWAYS says downloading windows 10... is there any way to get rid of that stupid message? I have removed the update that would constantly try downloading windows 10 on boot up.

Attachment shows exactly what i'm talking about.

Answer:Windows 8.1 Update says 'downloading win 10 every update'

You have to get rid of the related KB 3035583 in Windows updates in Program Updates in the Control Panel. Then hide that same KB when you reboot and go into Windows update.

The past two MS updates including the one today(MS06-001 - Vulnerability in Graphics Rendering Engine Could Allow Remote Code Execution (912919)), resulting in a stop error blue screen 000007b upon rebooting. I was able to fix both by rebooting from the Win2K disk and going to the manual repair and then run chkdsk. After chkdsk ran and replace some security files, I exited and rebooted and things were fine -each time.

As the title says, I have problems with Windows Update. I tried some fixes like: Reset_Reregister_Windows_Update_Components, Reset_Windows_Update_History, MicrosoftFixit50362 (which is a Microsoft Installer Fixer that couldn't install PowerShell), MicrosoftFixit50202. But what I really need is installing .NET Framework 4. I tried forcing it to install, installing it step by step, but it couldn't go further than .NET Framework 3.5. I need that Framework, the other updates don't really matter. And the interesting thing is that my antivirus doesn't say that Windows is not up-to-date, which is not normal, in ESET Smart Security, if Windows is not up-to-date.

Answer:Windows Update stuck at Checking for Updates and can't install Updates manually

Hi antoniu200:
 
Many other Vista users have reported that Windows Update seems to get stuck at "Checking for updates..." for long periods of time, and this problem dates back to the August 2015 Patch Tuesday updates - see my screenshots in ScousaJAY's thread windows update just seems to hang while checking in the VistaForums. This month's December 2015 Patch Tuesday updates required a full hour on my machine before it finished the  "Checking for updates..." phase and finally presented a list of available updates, so you might want to try running a manual Windows Update and leaving your computer alone for an hour or so to see if it eventually runs to completion.
 
You might also want to read Nikilet's recent thread Updates were not configured correctly in that same forum.  Some Vista users, including myself, received an error message this month stating "Updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes. Please do not turn off your computer" when they tried to install the December 2015 Patch Tuesday updates.  Six updates for the Vista OS and one cumulative update for IE9 were marked as "Failed" on my machine after Windows forced an automatic rollback and re-boot of my machine.  I re-ran Windows Update today and all Important updates that failed yesterday eventually installed successfully ("Checking for updates..." still took about one hour and I declined one Recommended update KB3112148 for Vista and one Optional update KB3106614 for Silver...

I recently (one week ago) made myself a dual-boot to Windows Vista SP2. I installed everything I needed and set the Windows updates to Automatically install updates. When I needed to make a video smaller (no need to talk about this in this thread) on Handbrake it said I needed Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0. I was surprised to see that. I went to see what Windows updates does and it wasn't checking for updates, as I set it to do. I started the check myself. I left it like that 30 minutes. When I closed my game, it was in the same state: checking for updates. So, I went to my .NET Framework 4 installer and, after 15 minutes, it gave an error: another installer is running. There were no installers, besides Windows update. So, I closed its process and let the installer run. After 15 minutes, it gave me an error (I don't remember the name of the error, I'll post it ASAP). So, I started researching, tried everything (MS FIXIT 50202, reset windows update history, reregister windows update components which gave me error 1060 and error 5 - error 5 is after trying MS FIXIT). I tried to "force" the .NET Framework 4 install by installing it step-by-step: 1.1  1.1 SP1  3.5  4. No succes. I AT LEAST need to install that .Net Framwork somehow. And the most interesting part is that my antivirus doesn't say that my OS is not up-to-date . SPECS: 6GB RAMAMD Athlon ll X4 750K 3.2-4.0 GHzAMD Radeon R7 240 4GB GDDR3

Windows Update downloaded and installed 3 updates earlier today without problem. However, I've only been able to get 2 more updates in the last 8 hours. WU displays "Downloading and Installing updates" and then sits there indefinitely at 0%. Byte count monitor show 0 byte count going up or down and Netstat shows no established TCP connection for WU. I have WU set to alert me to updates but allow me to choose whether to download. I have several updates to get and i'm downloaded them in piecemeal fashion until the WU problem is resolved. I also notice that Checking for updates hangs forever. Here's what I've done so far :
. Cleared WU download cache

. Downloaded and installed the latest WU agent

. Verified that the BITS and WU services were automatic & started

. Ran the WU troubleshooter under Systems & Security in Control Panel
result : utility displayed "Checking for updates online" & hung in some dead end loop forever

. Ran sfc /scannow & it came back clean

. Ran the WU Fix It diagnostic tool
result : couple of issues - service registration corrupted - Fixed
error 0x80070057 - Not fixed

Here's the problem. Windows Update was telling me it was downloading an update but it just stayed at 0%. When shutting down I get the message Windows is configuring Updates etc. but nothing happens so I have to turn the power off. I tried restoring to an earlier point but it keeps happening, even with Automatic Updates turned off. Which leads me to believe there's some temporary files or something at work here.

Currently I have disabled the Update service & everything is fine. What I want to know is which files I can delete which will hopefully solve my problem?

This girl on our floor is getting all of the symptoms of the good ole blaster worm and it's 1 minute to reboot issues. I figured I could just windows update until I fix it.
So I install the updates. They install fine, no errors, and windows update says they're installed. Reboot, the same updates are listed. Try once again, and again it says the same ones are listed after I reboot. So I try through automatic updates, and, once again, the same thing. The updates just aren't installing besides saying that they are installed.
I then download the stand-alone blaster worm patch. Run it, and right after I click "I Agree" and hit next, the window just closes, no errors or anything. Try again, same thing. Try in safe mode, same thing.
I've never had a problem with this before, does anyone have any recommendations?
 

Answer:Windows Update installs updates, but they're still listed under updates

I had the same thing on a system I was working on. I ran Spybot and Ad-aware and cleaned off so much crap... But I had to let Spybot start at reboot to catch the app-killer. Try that and see if you can get those updates to take. It may be some nastiness in the box. Umm, no pun intended.

Lenovo System Update tells me that all is up to date! I searched at Lenovo for new drivers for windows 8.1They asked me exactly what notebook I use. For the x1 carbone 3460-4LG (checked 3 times because I couldn't believe it) they discribed my computer as:i7-3667U(3.2GHz), 4GB RAM, 256GB Solid State Drive, 14in 1600x900 LCD, Intel HD Graphics, Intel 802.11agn wireless, WWAN, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Secure Chip, 4c Li-Ion, Win8 Pro 64. My notebook has 8GB RAM, 180GB SSD and (as I believe) no carbone x1 has 1GB Ethernet, because it has no network connector at all! So first question: can I believe the suggestions of lenovo for new drivers? There are several drivers released in October 2013 that I surely do not have already installed.That means, Lenovo System Update doesn't work any more, without error message! Question two: Has Lenovo a solution to repair their defective updater? Or will they release a solution? Very disappointed regards.Alex

I seem to have an issue that is the reverse of what most people experience. I have seen this before in Windows Vista too. Here in South Africa bandwidth is expensive, so most of you guys overseas won't have noticed this probably:

I asked Windows 7 to 'check for updates' and it reported a KB971092 which is an update to Visual Studio 2008 installed on my PC. I saw that the KB was 350MB so instead of letting Windows Update download it for me, I decided to download it from the Microsoft Download Centre, so I could keep it in case I reinstalled my PC and wanted to use it again without downloading it over and over again, 350MB being huge.

The KB downloading fine and installed fine. It appears in the 'Installed Updates' window. After going online again, I used the 'check for updates' again, and the KB disappeared from the list of items I still needed to download. So far so good.

But my connection kept on being very busy, downloading heavily from the internet. I installed NetLimiter to check what application was so busy downloading, and an IP was returned to me, it being Microsoft's Windows Update server's IP. No other application was doing anything on the net, just Windows Update STILL downloading KB971092! I am sure what will happen is, it will download all 350MB again and only then check and see it is installed, and then ignore it, but this is wasting valuable bandwidth!

Is there a way that I can check which updates are currently being downloading in some folder or log... Read more

Answer:Windows Update downloading after install

In Vista and in Windows 7 you can choose to Hide that update so Windows Update will not download it or install it... This information came from Microsoft Support..


You can hide the update, and then Windows Update won't offer it to you again unless you choose to restore it. Here's how to hide an update:Open Windows Update by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type Update, and then, in the list of results, click Windows Update.
Do one of the following:Click the link that tells you important updates are available if you have important updates to hide.
Click the link that tells you optional updates are available if you have optional updates to hide.

Select any update that you want to hide, right-click it, and then click Hide update. Do this for each update you want to hide.
Click OK.

Hi all.
I have Power Options on my Desktop PC set to defaults..i.e Balanced is set to 10 minutes for display and 30 minutes for Sleep.
Yesterday I went to Windows Store to download the Windows 8.1 Update to update my Windows 8.
I clicked the download button and went to watch TV while it downloaded. After a while I noticed that my PC had gone to sleep. I pressed the sleep button on my keyboard to wake the PC up. I wasn't sure if the Windows 8.1 Update would just resume where it was before it went into Sleep mode or whether I would have to start the download again by going back into the Windows Store to download it again from the beginning. After waking my PC up I decided to just leave it at the desktop screen to see what happened. 3 hours later the message came up saying that the PC needed to be restarted to install the update. When I have downloaded the Windows Update in the past it usually takes 2 hrs and 15 mins but I noticed that Microsoft have changed the Windows 8.1 Update slightly since I last installed it so I wasn't sure if that accounted for the download taking longer than usual. Some of the Download options/screens are different on the latest version so the Windows 8.1 Update has definitely been altered slightly.

Make sure you don't turn off the computer!
Switching off the computer can corrupt the file system and leave the computer unusable.
Depending on the updates, it can take some time. Give it time to finish what it is doing. Many times, the progress indicator will lie to you and will not move, until finally it is done.
If after a few hours it still hasn't finished, then check back with us and give us more information if possible.

That brings me to the Accept policy thing so i click accept and then it says Preparing to download... and there's that download window, but it just sits there and nothing happens. One time i just let it sit there for 15 minutes and no errors or anything, so what should i do?

Hello all,
My first post here. I did not see this problem while searching the forums so I hope it hasn't already been addressed. I'm running XP Home and Mozilla. I recently changed my Auto Update settings to notify me before downloading
updates, but now I find WU is downloading updates as I type this. I'm not sure if this if SP2 or not but it does seem to be a sizeable download. I'm on dial-up so it will be awhile before I know what the update is. Also, I'm using ZA 5.1 and do not allow IE access to the internet. Anyone know why update would start without notifying me first?

Shortly after the "Get Windows 10" icon appeared in the system tray of my Win 8.1 installation, I made the mistake of clicking on the "Get Windows 10" icon and "reserved" my copy of Windows 10. After some research, I elected to cancel my reservation for Windows 10 and did so by again clicking the "Get Windows 10" icon and going through the process to "cancel" my reservation. (I subsequently read Brink's fine post on "Get Windows 10 Icon -Remove from Taskbar in Windows 7 and 8.1" and did option four to uninstall the KB3035583 update). Now when I go to windows update and "search for updates", the search result is "install windows 10" though it does allow me to view "all available updates" which includes numerous "important" security updates as well as a few "optional" updates, one of which is Windows 10. I select the "important" updates, deselect the optional updates (including windows 10), and click install then get a dialog that "Windows 10 setup files are being downloaded" and an option to "cancel" (which I do). How do I stop Windows Update from downloading Windows 10 setup files and just download the "important updates" to secure my present installation of Win 8.1? Any helpful suggestions appreciated.

Answer:Windows Update Downloading W10 Automatically

I've got the same issue. I reserved my Windows 10 upgrade and then I think I clicked something in the Get Windows 10 app to say yes let's install. I changed my mind after reading stuff online and now whenever I try to install updates, it tries to download Windows 10 before any other update. I haven't tried getting rid of KB3035583 just yet, but I have unselected all updates except definition updates (3mb update), and windows 10 still tries to download. I cancel it every time for now. I tried hiding the optional Windows 10 update but this doesn't do anything either: Windows 10 still tries to download. Only thing I can do is turn off updates and never update anymore. I really don't want to do this or have to do a factory restore to 8.1 or worse: upgrade to windows 10 and then downgrade back to 8.1 within the 30 day window. Does anyone have any ideas?

Does Update delete $WINDOWS.~BT before downloading the new one? Or does it just overwrite the existing files?

Answer:Does Update delete $WINDOWS.~BT before downloading the new one?

I'll venture a guess that it overwrites it when the new update is downloaded. Build 14385 would overlay/update build 14383 then the update would be performed. I normally clean up the drive to get rid of that.

I've run the troubleshooter and it passes that. I ran the fix it to, no help.
I'm not too familiar with Windows 10 yet so I'm wondering if I might be missing something. Appreciate any help.

Answer:Windows Update Stuck at downloading

Try disconnecting your PC from the internet>close Windows Update>reopen windows update and see if an install (not download) button is showing and click it. Then reboot and start downloading the next batch. Sometimes Windows needs to install what it has before it can download and install the rest. You might have to do this a couple of times. Windows also (like recently) has to update Windows Update before it can further download.

Hi,
I have a Zoostorm netbook running windows starter which I took away on holiday over the recent break. When I go to shut down, there is always the yellow exclamation mark saying that an update is ready to install. The shut down continues and the netbook turns off.
The same message appears every time I go to shut down, it has now been over 2 weeks. It seems that the update is not installing or updating; how can I correct this? Many Thanks.

I assume it was a live upgrade....if so,it should not ask to download the upgrade again....or did you download the ISO image, if so,it needs to be burnt to a DVD a install from there..

Hey so I installed updates and found a weird file name (hfhfg6465gf56) just an example on my storage drive and not in my c drive. I understand when your c drive is almost full updates will install on another available hdd with more space but these are my drives for storing movies and tv shows so it's a pain to see some stupid file name.

Is there any way to stop windows from storing on other drives? And can I delete that file because it will not let me now even after I took ownership of the file.

Some time ago my GPU (AMD Radeon HD 7870) stopped working correctly. Since i wasnt sure about it from the start, i tried some things and one of it was formatting my drive and reinstalling windows. After windows was installed, it detected my GPU and downloaded its AMD drivers automatically but when it tried to install them, i was having blue screens (it turned out that my GPU was damaged and could work only with generic windows drivers). So after that, i removed the GPU from my computer and i switched to my Intel onboard graphics. The problem that i am facing though is that windows update still finds AMD driver updates and tries to install them unsuccessfully. I used the AMD driver uninstaller to remove any remnants of the drivers to see if that solves it and it seems that it uninstalled some things successfully and asked for a restart. After the restart, Windows Update found and started downloading AMD drivers again! In a few words, Windows behaves as if my GPU is still connected to my computer and will always download and try to install its drivers. If i try to remove any, it will download them from the start. Is there anything i can do about it?

Answer:Windows Update keeps downloading drivers for a non-existant GPU

Go into device manager and delete that GPU if it's listed under Display adapters. If you get an option to also delete the drivers for it do it.

Hi

I'm not particularly techy so I hope I describe this right.

I have a Toshiba laptop running the 64bit edition of Windows 7 Home Premium. Service Pack 1 is installed.

A couple of weeks ago, I was routinely automatically downloading and installing from Windows Update. Then at my last Windows Update, after it had finished installing, DNS simply would not resolve, then it started to but very very slowly and then it stopped again. I could use IP addresses just fine, but DNS would simply not resolve, or would do so very slowly.

Reading around, I tried the following:

1) Removing the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter completely. This seemed to work at first, and then it just stopped again.

2) Changing the preferred DNS to 208.67.222.222 and, when that didn't work to 208.67.220.220. that didn't work either.

3) I shut down all anti-virus/firewall - still didn't work.

I ended up taking Windows back to a System Restore point pre- the latest Windows Update and everything was fine again. Now I'm worried to run Windows Update at all. If anyone has any ideas about what I should be doing, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:No DNS after downloading and installing latest Windows Update

You can avoid having to do this if you can figure out which update is causing the problem and then you can right click and hide the update.

This particular update has been causing problems for awhile now but if you happen to reinstall that update then running this command might help.


Lets try flushing DNS cache and renewing your IP.

Flush the DNS cache and restore MS's Hosts file ...
Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click on the flush.bat file to run it as Administrator.

Your computer will reboot it self.

You might need to reboot twice for this to work.

I can't have my notebook (upgraded from Win 7 Home) using bandwidth to download from Windows Update when I'm away from home. It seems I must either (a) mark every wifi connection as metered, or (b) mark the startup setting for the WAU service as "Disabled", and only enable it when I want to check for updates. On my Win 10 Pro desktop, I used the GP Editor to make the setting to "notify but not download". What's the best solution for Win 10 Home?

Answer:Block Windows Update downloading on WIn 10 Home?

Hello Kaborka,

The group policy option will not work in Windows 10 Home editions, so you're best option would be to set your wireless network to be metered.

I was running fast ring builds for windows 10 on another partition, I had been updating this since the original technical preview. I was having some performance problems a couple months ago, so I decided to finally update my old windows 8.1 install to 10, eventually doing a fresh install of it and have left insider previews turned off. With build 14316 being announced, I reactivated insider previews, but windows update is not pulling any builds on either the slow or fast ring. I did notice that both installs are showing on my account when I signed on a few weeks back. Is the second install keeping this install from getting insider builds, and how would I go about fixing it?

Hi MadCabbit and welcome to Tenforums.

It can take up to 48 hours for you to see an Insider build come through after switching. I don't think your other install has anything to do with it.

System: Windows 7 home premium SP1

Internet connection via Frontier DSL, 3Mbps nominal download speed

I have noticed some strange behaviour with windows update. Doesn't happen every month but does occur enough that I wondering if someone could shed light on what is happening.

I monitor my download speed with NetMeter Evo 2.0. Windows update download will start normally with download speeds reaching my max of 3 Mbps. But when anywhere from 60% to 80% of the files have been downloaded, the download may stop - that is, the displayed speed in NetMeter goes to 0. At this point, I open a browser to google.com (to 'tickle' the Internet connection ) and suddenly Windows Update download takes off. If the download stops again, I repeat this weird approach. Seems to work. Is this just coincidence or is there something going on here?

I get similar behavior in Vista and 8.1. The download(s) will start out like gangbusters then suddenly drop to zero. The last few percent of the download(s) will eventually trickle in and the updates will install. ? I'll have to try opening FF to see if I get the same results as you.
