Installing 200 updates after upgrade to Windows 7 -first failed update

Question: Installing 200 updates after upgrade to Windows 7 -first failed update

I upgraded to 7 from Vista, using an original manufacturer disk. It was not a clean install, I installed on top of Vista.

Works fine and I started installing about 200 updates in series of 5-10. Went great until one failed.

It is KB3075220 and error code is 800F0902

I attach a printscreen.

What can I do to fix this?

Preferred Solution: Installing 200 updates after upgrade to Windows 7 -first failed 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: Installing 200 updates after upgrade to Windows 7 -first failed update

Hi Johnny,
That error code is not really a problem.
That KB has been superceeded, but not yet recognised by your system, it may clear itself after a reboot if not you can hide it and carry on updating the rest.

I would like to delete the failed updates list in Windows 7 Update.  I have done this in the past but forget exactly the process.
 
I think you go to Windows Folder-Software Distribution.  After deleting everyhting in the folder., i think you are to restart the computer.  Once finished the list of updates in Windows Update will be cleared. 
 
Please correct if I am wrong.  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Answer:Failed Updates in Windows Update. Want to clear update list?

This is the way I suggest :
 
Go to start > type in cmd > right click at cmd.exe > Run as Administrator.
 
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.
 
Thank you.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop that runs Windows Vista SP1. Last Monday it had shut down and the only thing I could do was to reformat and install Vista. I checked in BIOS and the hard drive was recognized. There are 3 gigs of RAM recognized. After installing, I was able to install all the drivers and all looks well in the Device Manager. I put Microsoft Security Essentials on and updated the virus definitions. I thought the next thing I should do is to install Windows Updates. That is where my problem started. When I first checked it showed 9 updates that needed to be installed. As I've done installation before I knew that wouldn't be all but after the installation I checked and all were installed and showed as successful in the Windows Update History. After that I checked again and it showed 111 updates. I went ahead and started the installation of the 111. All were installed and after restarting and having windows complete all three steps of installation I checked and the Windows Update History shows that the files have failed. I don't think that is possible as I saw successful insulation.

I am going to assume that they were installed. Is there a way I can erase the Windows Update HIstory so I won't see the failed installations? I know I've done that once before but it has been a long time and I just don't remember.

Thanks in advance for any and all help. I really appreciate it.

Windows updates keeps installing/reinstalling the same update over and over again. I looked in my update history and it shows that they are installed successfully every time. What should I do and is this using space on my laptop by re-installing over and over again?

It is not using any space. Right-click the ones you already have and hide them so they don't come back.

Hi all,

Running Win 7 Home Premium (SP1) 64 bit.
I always downloaded and installed the Windows updates for my computer without problems. However, a few days ago, after I downloaded and installed 14 updates, my Windows Explorer started to act very odd: for example, I was not able to copy / paste the files using right click. Immediately, I used the restore point created before the updates => the Windows Explorer issue was solved and the computer seemed to return to normal.
But now, although the Windows Update screen shows the 14 updates as downloaded, when I click on "Install", the green indicator goes left and right for hours, but the installation doesn't happen.
I looked for solution online and I tried the following resources without success:

- FixIt tool: it gets stuck in the "Checking for Updates" screen.

- Run Malwarebytes, Lavasoft, Spybot: all clear.

- http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/window... => I tried to apply the "Most Helpful Reply" (by miluethi) =>
1. Run services.msc
2. Stop service Windows-Update
3. Delete folder content of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\
4. Start service Windows-Update again
5. Run Windows Update
I was not able to Stop the Windows Update service (I got the 1053 error)

- Run registry cleanup.

- Tried all the processes disabling Norton.

I will appreciate any help.
Thank you in advance,

Marsh

I wanted to upgrade to Windows 10 (free) but thought I might have a virus or malware. Also had 200 failed Windows updates. I am unsure if i should fix these before upgrading to Windows 10, or whether upgrading will effectively 'clean' the OS. If i dont ensure laptop is clean, will the (possible) virus or malware affect the downloading of Windows 10?
In more detail -
Before attempting Windows 10 upgrade, I checked that Windows updates were current and found 200 failed updates. On trying to install these updates it would not install any. My laptop (Lenovo Yoga 2) is fairly new but used infrequently and updates were not set to auto.
At the same time i had some difficulty updating Firefox and running some online scanners. I downloaded and ran Malwarebytes, which found Pup.Optional.WebSearchInfo. I didn't take action on this as i found advice online that suggested performing 4-5 steps in a particular order to remove it.
As I am a novice, i have left things as they are, stopped using the laptop and thought it best to ask for advice. Any help would be much appreciated.

Guys,

My computer is running Windows 7. Like most of you, I am getting the "Update to Windows 10" is ready notification. However, I have no intention of updating to Windows 10 and never even reserved an update.

In my Windows Update check, I am getting FAILED Windows 10 Pro Updates. But because I have not updated to Windows 10, why would I even be getting those Windows 10 updates in the first place? Are these just tons of prep crap that MS is releasing just in case users want to update to Windows 10 at a later date?

I did have one stubborn Windows 7 update that did not go through this Patch Tuesday, but a few restarts later and all is well.

I assume that Windows 8.1 users may be facing these same Windows 10 patches, whether they want them or not.

hi guys! hope everyone's doing well. before i delve into the big issue, have a minor question. last night i was trying to update some drivers and the fan started running hot. checked the task manager and the CPU usage was 100% it was scary. anyway, i stopped the task, but the fan was running pretty wild for a good 3-5 minutes. how damaging was this to the overall condition of the laptop? hope not too bad or not at all heh.. ok so shortly after, i updated 2 things, BIOS, and Windows update. it was late at night, i figured it would finish when i wake up, but nope, the update install was stuck. Then i restarted the computer, and got a message saying that update failed, and reverting to old changes (something along those lines). i cant seem to get out from that message. so i went into safe mode, and tried to delete the updates one at a time, and for some reason, i cant! now im clueless. i dont have a recovery image or cd heh... i should really set a recovery point before updating... need to remind myself to do that. i tried to troubleshoot the updates, but windows can't fix the problems either.. how can i fix this?

Answer:Windows update failed, stuck in loop, cant delete updates in safe mode

I actually have the same issue with my PC - Desktop. Where it'll start installing then once at 80% it'll start reverting. It gets annoying, I have suspicions that it's cause I upgraded my GPU from a HD 7400 series to a GTX 750 Ti. So I think my when I tried doing updates it was still trying to update the non-existant HD 7400 GPU and causing my installation to fail.  I'm curious to know if maybe this is a Hardware issue verses software !

So I did a fresh install of Windows 7 (again), and I shut it down last night and it started installing some updates. 211? I thought it wouldn't take too long. Usually when I have installed all the updates for a fresh install it took no more than 3 hours. But 11??? This is pretty insane. Since I woke up which is about 1 hour ago, it has been stuck on update 177 of 211. I suspect this update has been causing the system to be updating all night because when I last checked before going to sleep last night at 10:30, it was at update 118 or so. My question is why is it taking so long and when will it be finished? Also, is there a way to interrupt this without corrupting the hard drive?

Hi

I updated my Windows and it said I had some updates that needed to be downloaded and installed. I went ahead and downloaded and installed them and was asked to restart my PC. When I restarted my PC, it said

"Preparing To Configure Windows. Please Do Not Turn Off Your Computer"

I waited for over an hour now and decided that something was wrong. I decided to restart my PC and everything was fine. Windows update didn't find any new updates so I checked my installed update history. It shows that those updates that I was suppose to install didn't install. The status for those updates show up as "Cancelled".

I was curious to know how do I download those specific updates (Security updates) and install them on my PC?

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

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.

Answer:Windows Update Has Stopped Installing Updates

Hi, first check your disk.
Download and run Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) (assuming you have some sort of conventional disk with SMART parameters). Post the result.

Then check the 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.

Then post a screenshot of Disk Management (Windows key + X, click Disk Management).

Is there sufficient free space on C: ?

From an admin command prompt run
SFC /scannow
This will take some time.
Report the result on the screen.
If this fails, stop here.

Have you tried doing updates with all unnecessary peripherals disconnected?

Try the Windows update troubleshooter. (Bottom rt)

So I built up a new system a few days ago, clean install of Win 7 Pro 64-bit on a new SSD.

Then I ran Windows update. Got something like 134 updates the first time I ran it. I figured that this was a big catchup, but I was wrong. I keep running Update and it keeps finding "new" updates. Thing is, many of them are from 2011.

Why didn't Windows install every single outstanding update the first time I ran it.

Any way to identify outstanding updates and force them to be installed?
 

Answer:Windows 7 update installing updates from 2011, after being run repeatedly

Because some updates are incremental and require others to be installed first.

One thing you can do is slipstream Service Pack 1 into your install disc. This will take care of a lot of the updates.

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!

It's always an update called "Upgrade to Windows 10 Home"

I already uninstalled the KB3035583 Windows Update but the problem is still occurring.

Can someone here please help me fix this issue? I want to stop this from happening because even though my 8.1 is still working I don't like this constantly happening every day I turn the computer on.

I have 3 Updates I've been trying to install for a while, however they seem to keep failing. I've never had any issues previously with Windows Update, and I keep the computer relatively clean. I've tried a few troubleshooting steps ( Such as running my Registry Cleaner, Fix-its from Microsoft )

I am getting the Error 80070643. I ran the Fix-it from the Microsoft Website - Windows Update error 80070643 and the Microsoft Office Source Engine Service is already running.
I also went here, and ran the Fix-it which resets Windows Update, In Aggressive Mode - How do I reset Windows Update components?

Ran Windows Update again, Same error.

I’m running Windows Seven x64 Home Premium, I have not made any recent changes to my computer.


Either the Updates are bugged, or there's something else going on here. I'm going to try installing them from the Administrator Account - I am going to try in Normal Mode and In Safe Mode With Networking and post back the results. If anyone has any suggestions I'd be very grateful. Thanks

I've honestly never really had an issue with Updates. This is very odd.

Hello,

I have Windows 7, SP1, with Windows Update configured to:

"Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them"


I am now unable to work on my computer when first setting Windows Update to download updates.


This is because once Windows Update has installed updates, a Windows Update screen showing a "Restart" button flashes on to the screen but then without any input from me, the computer reboots, losing me all my personal work that was in progress.

When I say "without any input from me", I mean that I do NOT click any reboot button.

This issue seems to have occurred for the first time, following the installation of Security Update
KB3185319, but of course I do not know if it really is connected with that.

I would appreciate a solution to this issue.

Thank you.

I just updated my 64-bit PC with the anniversary update, as confirmed by the changes to the notification at far right, and all programs showing on the start menu.

But then, I tried the update on my 32-bit PC, which I started and let run while away from it. When I came back, Windows had restarted, so I assumed that it had updated. However, the notification icon is still to the left of the date in task bar and the start menu at left, still as it was. As it appeared the update did not work, I went into Windows updates again, where I was advised there were none available.

I assumed that if it failed, that it would be available again under updates, however now not sure what happened?

Update: Found the Windows Update Assistant and running it shows that I had 1511 version and not the Anniversary 1607. I'm thinking now that the updates were all for 1511 and not the anniversary update.
Anyway, continued with the 1607 update that fully downloaded, verified and started the update. About 15% of the way, it failed with error 0x80070570. Tried it twice with same result. Any ideas?

This is just bizarre...I have a laptop with Windows 8.1 Pro. I had confirmed that I wanted to upgrade it to Windows 10 Pro using the system tray "Get Windows 10" update, but changed my mind. So when I was told that the Windows 10 update was ready, I told the "Get Windows 10" update that I didn't want to reserve an update anymore. I thought that would be the end of it.
So when I went to get updates today, Windows Update showed on the opening page that it was ready to install Windows 10, and of course none of the Windows 8.1 updates were preselected, why would I need those if I'm upgrading to Windows 10? Since I'd already indicated that I didn't want the Windows 10 update, this was strange.
So I uninstalled the "Get Windows 10" system tray update and hid it, and deselected the optional Windows 10 update, and hid it, too. That should have taken care of business, since the Windows 10 optional update was clearly not selected for download.
But now, every time I go to Windows update to try to get updates for Windows 8.1, even though Windows 8.1 updates are the only ones selected, and the number of optional updates selected indicates that the Windows 10 upgrade is not selected, the first thing that it says that it is doing is downloading the unselected Windows 10 update. I have no idea why this is happening and really need to fix it so that I can just get Windows 8.1 updates.

Hello, I recently installed Windows 7 on my wife's computer and shortly afterward, let Windows install the updates it wanted through Windows Update. Upon reviewing the Update History, I see that many of the updates originally failed, but have since been updated successfully. I've gone through these updates one by one and found 3 (2706045, 2729094, and 2758857) which do not appear to have been installed successfully. I don't get any errors and the Windows Update tool does not indicate that updates are needed. Is this something I should correct, or should I assume that the Windows Update tool knows what it's doing and not worry about it? I've run the Fix It tool that comes up within Windows when one selects "Troubleshoot problems with installing updates" multiple times. I've also run the Fix Microsoft Windows Update Issues tool located at: Fix Windows Update Error messages and other Windows Update issues multiple times as well. Each time I run this tool, it indicates that it's resolved an issue, but it seems to be the same each time, so I don't have confidence that it's doing anything. Thanks in advance for your input.

Answer:Update history indicates some updates failed, but not sure it's a prob

You may well find that the failed updates installed successfully at a later time - this is quite common, as updates test to ensure that all required files are already installed, and will fail if not, only to install successfully after the next reboot when the files have been install by another update.

Upon shutting down my laptop (Windows 7 SP 1) I was given the message that updates were being configured and to not shut off the computer. I found this strange as I have Windows Update set to have me choose when updates are downloaded and installed. I let it run and at the point where the updates were shown as 35% completed, it just hung there. I let it run for several minutes and it did not change. I shut off the computer using the power button.

I restarted the computer in safe mode and was quickly given a message to the effect update configuration had failed and things would be reverted. It stayed at this message for about 20 minutes and then a message indicating a cleanup was being done appeared. This lasted about 5 minutes or so and then it went to my sign in screen.

A message that I had windows updates available then appeared in the notification pane. There were 3 optional updates available, 2 for MSE which I no longer have on my computer and 1 for IE 11, which I have on my computer.

I uninstalled the IE 11 update on my computer and then tried to install the update. The installation failed twice. I then did a restore and got IE 11 back.

The update history on the Windows Update page shows the 2 failed installations of IE 11, which still appears as an available optional update, on 01/01/2015. However, the view installed updates in the Control Panel shows 44 Windows updates being installed on 01/01/2015.

I've a customer who simply cannot install all updates. In in the end, he decided to try the upgrade route in an attempt to fix the updates not installing. He got hold of an ISO (without SP1) and started the process. At about 70% completion (I believe the OS components have successfully been installed) it stops. The error message states something about lack of disk space to install the applications (????). There's plenty of disk space of course.

Previous to the upgrade try, we've run various MS FixIt tools, SFC, disk check, disabling A/V, checking for malware, etc. Commonly, upon unsuccessful updates, the error codes are either 8007371b or 80073712.

However, whenever either of us try and use Windows Update, it sits there for hours and hours on "Installing Updates 1 of 2."

Does anybody have any ideas where I could look as to why this is happening?

go to c:/windows/software distribution/data store

open windows update and it should be red indicating never searched for updates

So I booted off a Windows recovery disk and figured Startup Repair would fix it. Alas, after it says "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options" and asks me if I want to repair, I click "repair and restart" and it says "Failed to save startup options".

Answer:Many failed update on history windows failed to configure startup

Hello smeraldan and welcome to Seven Forums.

My usual disclaimer: I'm not an expert at anything. Sometimes malware can prevent Windows Updates from installing. Run a full scan with your personal anti-malware suite. Then use the free Malwarebytes to run another full scan. (No anti-malware product is 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it.)

Malwarebytes

Another possible problem is if system files became damaged or corrupt. I'd run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You could also try running the System Update Readiness Tool if you haven't already done so.

System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008

Try installing the updates again, but this time just do a few at a time (maybe only 5 or so.) Keep track of the KB numbers. Start with the critical updates, then the important, and save the optional for last. If a group of 5 installs OK go on to the next group. If any group fails to install you'll know which group to uninstall. Try installing just one update at a time. If they install OK go on to the next group. Otherwise just ignore the problem update(s) for the time being and continue installing in groups of 5.

The fix, appears to be to do the following - MS appears to be recommending the link on twitter

1. Go into "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" and delete everything in that folder.
2. Now, run the command prompt as an administrator. Type in "wuauclt.exe /updatenow".
3. Go to your Control Panel > Windows Update and your Windows 10 should start re-downloading from scratch, hopefully without flaws this time.

Hi Guys,
I have tried to upgrade to windows 10 from windows 7, but after downloading, it prompts the above.
Tried finding how to solve the problem only, where it is a known problem and there are steps to free up the RESERVED partition.
Problem is, my C: does not have a RESERVED partition. Only SYSTEM, and DATA partition..
Is there any way of solving the issue?
I don't mind formatting the C: SSD, but I am not sure how to backup my entire C: and being able to restore to the formatted SSD without again over-writing the RESERVED partition.
TIA!

I just upgraded my laptop from Windows 8.1 to 10 build-10240 and any new app I attempt to install says it completes but wont open. In the start menu under all apps the new apps have no logo, a line underneath them, and clicking on them sends me to the
update/install screen with no action to perform. When I check for updates, the same 31 updates come up and one fails on the first attempt, on the second attempt all 31 complete. This goes on every time I check for updates. Any help, or did I

Hi,

To give you some back story, I built my computer the end of August 2012. Ran Smoothly. I decided to get a 60 gig SSD to be the partition that stored Windows. I didnt have much stored on the Main HD so I deleted my original 2TB HD and tried installing on the SSD... found that the SSD was bad and sent it back. Decided just to stick with the 2TB HD. Had some issues installing windows back onto the HD as it would just hang up. Finally managed to get windows installed, had some "Not genuine" issues but that resolved after multiple restarts. That brings me to where I am at today and I feel as though the system has been getting worse. I would normally be fine with just a clean install but with all the issues I had with that initially I am very skeptical of trying it again. I have 5 important updates and 7 optional updates all of which do not install. The Installer just sits on Downloading updates and I have left it overnight with still no result. I am not sure if this is even my main issue but I am beyond the point of figuring it out myself so any help would be appreciated

I downloaded the System Readiness Tool and it Ran. I tried running the sfc /scannow in Admin cmd prompt mode and get a "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation" I attached my CBS file. Any help you could give or guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows Updates Not Installing : Error Unknown (Sits on Installing)

Hello and welcome Faticus just as matter of interest why did you give up on the SSD? was not it under warranty?

That is heck of a drive to be installing on mate just how did you prepare it for the install?

You can run a chkdsk in Windows too > My Computer > right click on the drive > Properties > Tools > Check now - then follow the points in my pic.
You then reboot and it will start a chkdsk (in DOS).

I have a legal copy of XP which has been registered. There are 92 updates that will not install. I isolated KB892130 as the validation tool that will not validate with Microsoft before the other updates can be installed. I have turned off Avast (antivirus), but did not disable it. I have a laptop with Avast on it which has updated perfectly. I have forced validation from DOS but this still doesn't let the updates go ahead.
Any ideas?
 

Answer:Solved: XP update KB892130 will not validate and stops updates installing

I manually updated each one of the 97, (by now), updates with a shutdown inbetween each one...phew... took 6 hours but it is now updating. So the forced validation from DOS did work after all.

So last night a big windows 10 message thing came up on my laptop and told me that I should upgrade for free. I did, and when I restarted my laptop it went to the normal update screen and said "keep your PC on until this is done. installing update 1 of 1". It took a long time so I had to leave it on over night. So now it's been about 12 hours and it's still installing? I really need my laptop so should I turn off my laptop?

I want to stop Windows 10 from installing on my Windows 7 partition.

I already have Windows 10 on another partition. But now in Windows Update I now see "Upgrade to Windows 10". How do I get rid of this and stop the Windows 10 Upgrade in Windows Update from ever appearing again.

I had previously unreserved my Windows 10 upgrade in the Windows 10 notification app, but I guess that didn't work. I'm afraid if I shutdown or restart my Windows 7 installation now the upgrade will occur.

I know this was asked before but I was unclear on exactly what to do. Any replies would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi, I've had an X200 for around 7 months now and just did an auto-update earlier today. One of the items was a BIOS update, so I thought what the heck, it should be fine, always has been before. The update completed correctly and shuw down for reboot as planned. The system now no longer boots. Nothing at all happens. When I press the power button, no matter whether with AC supply or on battery, the following happens:- num lock, caps lock, HDD and 'power on' lights light up for a second or so then go off again- they come back on again for another second, and off again- then only the bluetooth light and the 'power on' light remain lit, and nothing else happens It seems pretty fried to me. What can I do? I'm in severe despair! :'( Thanks in advance for your help, Phil

Yesterday, I clean-installed Windows 8 Pro x86 on an old Dell Vostro 1400 laptop which had been running Windows 7 Ultimate, and it activated and ran fine, without even a single exclamation point in Device Manager. I applied the update necessary to make the Store offer 8.1 and proceeded to install it as I've done on a couple other machines. After downloading the thing, it errored out with:

Couldn't install Windows 8.1

Contact your PC manufacturer to see if you can upgrade the System BIOS

When I clicked the OK button, it then gave me the informative and grammar-challenged error box:

Something happened and the Windows 8.1 couldn't be installed. Please try again. Error code: 0xc1900104

Try again Cancel

Ever the optimist, I clicked Try again, and of course, it proceeded to download all over again from scratch, only to error out in the same way. I then downloaded all the Windows 8 updates, although just the one had been necessary on my other machines that successfully upgraded to 8.1, and tried again, only to get the same result.

Today, I've discovered the Windows 8.1 Compatibility Assistant, which avoids the lengthy download of the upgrade every time (Microsoft, maybe you should run it implicitly before downloading 3 GB of transient data), and it tells me:

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.

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

I have a Win 7 Home Premium 32 bit laptop that I use only on rare occasions. Yesterday I booted it up and updated number of apps and programs. When I went to windows update there were 73 updates available. 69 were critical and 4 were recommended.

I ran the update and after several minutes I got a message that the updates could not be installed.The error was 0x80243004. The reason given was that the notification icon for Windows Update has disappeared preventing the installation of new updates. The instructions given was to click on show hidden icons in the notification area - however I find no show hidden icons button there, or any way to open this feature. Is there a way to remedy this?

I tried an alternate approach and went to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items>Notification Area Icons and found bracketed a list of icons in the notification area but found no Windows Update listed or any way to view hidden icons? Always show all icons box was checked on this screen.
