Preferred Solution: Windows 10 ready to install preventing Windows 7 updates.

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: Windows 10 ready to install preventing Windows 7 updates.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
You might try to power down just hold down the power button on your computer till your machine turns off
Then unplug it from the power source and or remove the battery if using a laptop.
Hold down the power button again for at least 60 seconds to drain any power out of the system..

Then start in safe mode with networking at startup

There are some windows updates you need to uninstall and kill some gwx services and processes
Which might be easiest to install never 10 or gwx control panel to do that

A previous question about how to uninstal Windows Steady State goes unanswered.  I presume Microsoft people monitor these posts, but they do not know how to uninstall Windows Steady State to enable the Windows 10 1511,10586 updates
to be installed.   It looks like I am stuck in a bog unable to move forward with Windows 10, so intend to roll back to my previous version and then consider my OS options.   
Is anyone aware of any major problems likely to be encountered by me taking this course?

I have a paid version of AVG Internet Security 2012 which commenced in August 2012. I've had paid versions in the previous two years and until the last two months have had no problems.
In the past few days when I switch on my PC (Windows XP with Mozilla Firefox browser, wired connection with BT) the automatic AVG update will not proceed, nor will a manual attempt.
Within a few minutes of switching on the following Windows warning box appears on the screen:
'The software you are installing for this hardware - Non-Plug and Plug Drivers - has not passed the Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP. Continuation of installation of this software may impair or destabilise the correct operation of of your system either immediately or in the future.'
Two options are then given: Continue anyway or Stop installation.
The updates waiting to be downloaded are all version 2238 of the the following: Alert Manager; Anti Rootkit Driver; Anti Spam Component; Scanning Engine; Set Up Component; Kernel components; E-mail Scanner; Firewall Component; User Interface Component; Identity Protection; Language Files (English); Online Shield (Settings); Resident Shield Scanner; Link Scanner HTTP Redirector; Systems Tools Component; TDI Component; Pc Analyzer; Update Component.
If I click on 'Continue anyway' the system attempts to download the updates again but aborts very quickly and the same warning notice appears. If I do nothing the warning notice remains but my AVG page sa... Read more

For some reason, whenever windows 8.1 updates, internet explorer stops working. Every time I try to get on the internet, I just keep getting a message that 'this page cannot be displayed'. Skype still works, so the problem seems to be internet explorer itself.

I have decided to switch to google chrome to fix the problem, but I can't do so without getting on the internet.

I would like to restore the computer to a point in which it worked, and I have one restore point which I'm certain will work, but the problem is, immediately after restoring, windows automatically updates, which kind of undermines the entire purpose of the restore. I have tried changing the update settings so it will restore without updating, but as soon as the system restores, my changes are undone and windows then proceeds with the stupid updates.

I just want to get on the internet somehow to install google chrome! (and no, I can't just copy and paste from the computer I'm currently on because this one has windows 7).

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Unplug your router, then do your system restore. You then have as much time as you need to configure Windows Update not to auto check.

Get Ready: New Windows 10 Cumulative Updates to Launch This Week

It?s time for our typical pre-Patch Tuesday notification aimed at Windows 10 users: new cumulative updates will be released tomorrow for all versions of the operating systems, and IT pros should prepare computers in their environments for deployment.

Tomorrow?s cumulative updates are twice more important than any other update, mainly because they will include security fixes addressing vulnerabilities in Windows and the pre-installed apps.

Installing the most recent cumulative update brings a computer fully up-to-date, so if you do install tomorrow?s release, this means your system will include all the patches released by Microsoft for the Windows 10 version you are running.

As with all the other cumulative updates, there are concerns that Microsoft could ship botched patches causing problems on users? computers, but the truth is that the number of issues experienced after installing cumulative updates has dropped substantially after the release of the Creators Update in April.




Nearly flawless install experience
The majority of bugs that users were hitting when installing cumulative updates before the Creators Update launched generated failed installs, with a substantial number of users complaining that the whole process got interrupted before completion, pushing their systems in an infinite loop, with the update being re-offered when logging back in to the desktop.

Hello!
I bought a Dell XPS 15 (9550) with Windows 10 and so far everything have been good, except that I keep getting empty updates from the Dell Update-app. 
I have installed these empty updates ("0 updates are ready to install") many times but they never stop. 

Today, I got this message: "73 updates are ready to install", which got me a bit worried. 
What can I do? 

Answer:Dell Update - Empty updates "0 updates are ready to install"

I’m going to look at major elements when starting with the OS in this thread as to why I think Windows 10 is a cobbled together OS which is not nearly ready for deployment
YOUR NEW DESKTOP. After firing up build 10158 the only changes I have made are removing the completely unnecessary task view button and the extremely ugly Cortana text box, let’s start with the desktop icons UGLY, the user icon dates back to either Vista or Seven, the PC and Network icons look like something you’d see in an 80’s movie that’s set in the year 2000 and the Recycle Bin is rehashed from Windows 95 (I’m not sure if it’s in celebration of the Chicago interfaces 20th birthday).
Moving on to This PC (or My Computer) the folder icons are the next iteration of those dating to Windows Vista following Microsoft’s crackerjack design team being laughed out of the room with the attempt of a redesign! The rear of the folder is now flat rather than at a perspective and so to the overlay which identifies to folders purpose (music note, picture, etc) and come off as a little dull. Drive icons have been given a very, very slight revamp to resemble an external drive you’d plug into a commodore 64 although no one thought to change the Blu-ray icon in the same fashion as the DVD next to it despite the only difference being the banner overlay DVD > BR….?

Hi there,

I got a new pc about a month ago and have had so many problems getting windows 7 installed and updated with SP1 and the updates that follow SP1.

My windows disk is about 6 years old so pre Service Pack 1.

I installed windows fresh this morning and when I loaded into the desktop and went to windows update amount the 40 important updates was SP1.

I installed all the important updates and optional updates except for service pack 1 rebooted and then there were some more updates available so installed them aswell then I clicked to install Service Pack 1. Its file size was on 13mb so installed it which installed successfully then went back into updates and another service pack update was available of a bigger size so I installed this. I was then prompted to restart my computer and between the shutdown and loading back into windows it configured the service pack.

Now it's showing installed but it only took no more than 5 minutes to install as I have windows on a SSD drive.

Now the other day I tried to install the following 147 important updates post installing service pack 1 and it said updates installed successfully then prompted me to restart pc and when loaded back into desktop a popup message in the system tray said windows failed to install updates.

Is 147 updates to many to try installing all at once?

Can I please have some help as getting very frustrated having to continually reinstall windows.

Thanks

Answer:Fesh Install Windows 7 & SP1 ready to download straight after boot up

Sometimes they have to be installed in groups as some require others to install the next and windows does not always figure that out. I would try to run disk cleanup and ask it to clean out the old update stuff first, then try it in waves of 20 at first.

Boot into "Safe Mode with Networking" (restart while tapping F8 repeatedly) and see if you can install the updates. This should work.

My hard drive failed recently on my portege 3490. I bought a replacement seagate 20gb hard drive. I installed Windows XP pro by connecting the drive (via adaptor) to my desktop and running the setup cd.

I thought I could then just fit the drive back into the Portege and be good to go. However when I turn on the system straight away asks me to insert system disk.

I have no floppy drive and my only cd is a usb drive and I cannot use this to boot.

Has anyone got any ideas how I can get this working?

I plugged the same drive into my other notebook (non Toshiba) and it boos straight away. Thanks for your help

Answer:Portege 3490, install new hard drive with windows xp ready loaded?

Hi

I have no real solution for you except that I can confirm that the ay you installed Windows and then moved the HDD is generally not a good idea.

In your case I think what is the primare problem is that the BIOS'es in the 2 different PC's look at the HDD in different ways. That means that even though both systems might say that it is a 20GB HDD they read it differently and therefore the 3490 gets only 'strange' data from the disk.

Even if it had been able to read the contents still it is not a good idea to do the installation this way because if the chipsets differ too much then Windows will not be able to boot due to wrong drivers.

My suggestion is to
In the 3490 format the HDD with FAT32.
Once again attach the 20GB to the other system.
Copy the contents of the i386 folder of the Windows media to the HDD.
Put the HDD back in the 3490.
Boot up on a DOS/Win9X diskette and enter the I386 directory. Start the installation from there.

A little bit of fiddling but should give you no problem with boot up.

Good luck

Tom

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.

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.

I have Windows 7 and something appears to be keeping it from finding and installing ANY updates, let alone Windows 10.
 
No new updates for MONTHS. "Checking for updates" can run forever and not find anything.
 
I have the Windows 10 icon & the GWX.exe (or whatever it's called), but once I click on it, it disappears.
 
I did make a USB of the Windows 10 software, but I don't want to attempt that until I know the Windows update (ANY updates) will be fixed through that install, or whether I need to fix that problem first before attempting to install Win10 from a USB or disc.
 
Did a few run-of-the-mill basic troubleshooting and suggestions, but nothing has worked.
 
I'm not tech savvy, but I know enough about computers to do some real damage in the really pissed off state I'm in. Sometimes, like now, I'm smart enough to know not to go there and ask around instead.
 
Help. 
 
I tried restoring to the last restore point when Windows updates were working fine. This restore failed, likely due to the fact that the last restore point when updates DID work was months prior.

Answer:Windows updates problem won't let me install Windows 10 or ANY updates

If you type Services.msc in the Start menu search bar and open the console, search for the Background Intelligent Transfer Service and Windows Update service. They should be set to Automatic (Delayed Start), and they should be Started. If they aren't, right click each and select Start.
 
If that doesn't resolve it, try resetting the Windows Update components:

Suddenly Windows 7 has stopped installing Windows Updates. It downloads, then creates restore point, starts installation, but then comes back with the error code 800F0900. This happens with all the updates when carried out individually, critical or optional. I first went through the process of clearing all the Start-up Programs in the Services section of msconfig. As that did not solve it I then stopped all but MS services, and that did not solve it.  I tried the Microsoft .NET Setup Verification Tool. This said there were problems that it could not fix and sent a report to Microsoft.  Following an earlier thread on this site, I installed and used the Windows Repair program from Tweeking.com. This failed to solve the problem. Does any one have any other possible advice to help solve this problem ?

Answer:Windows Updates will not install. Error code 800F0900 for all updates.

At 9:33, it was still going with no progress update, and it suddenly turned off. When I turned it back on, there were no new updates installed.

It's done something like this at least once before. Any clue why it takes so long with no status updates. I don't recall my laptop ever doing this.

I have a Dell XPS 15 Z laptop with 6 GB of RAM, 4 x 2.53 GHz processors and 500 GB hard drive which is only about half full. The operating system is Windows 7 Pro/ 64. All updates are current. I have Kaspersky anti-virus, malware bytes, & spybot search and destroy. All of which say the computer is clean.
I have repeatedly successfully installed 2 Windows updates:

Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB2836939)


Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4 on XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB2858302)

Then, within a a few minutes I am notified that 2 new updates are available... The same ones. Just to make sure the update were truly successful, I have reinstalled them several times with the same result.

Occasionally there are other Windows updates included along with my two familiar ones. The others install fine and I never hear anything more about them. But the two above will soon come back as new updates available.

Though I can certainly ignore responding to these update notifications, it would be kind and nice to get it fixed.

Thanks Larry

Answer:2 Windows updates install successfully, re-flagged as new updates

Right click on the ones you already have (when they show up again) and 'hide' them. That will stop the nuisance.

I have 5 updates that fail to install. I have also tried to manually install them, but they still fail Here are the updates:

KB2586448

KB2572076

KB2564958

KB2567053

KB2579686

The error code I get is "800736B3". I ran MS FIXIT and it said they did not detect any problems.

Answer:5 updates fail to install through windows updates or manual?

Hello, have you tried:

Open the Windows Update troubleshooter by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Under System and Security, click Fix problems with Windows Update.

Its from this link: Windows Update error 800705b4

I know its a different error code but its worth a try.

I built up a new PC before Christmas. These were the components:

Asus P8Z77-V Motherboard
Intel i5 3570K 3.4GHz
2 x G-Skill 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz
PowerColor HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI PCI-E Graphics Card
OCZ 120GB Agility 3 SSD

Not really used it that much and have had random crashes since built. Today, I decided to start afresh and reformatted the C drive and re-installed Windows. Although the OS installed without a hitch, at various times throughout the Windows Update process, the machine would crash a BSOD would appear.

I have attached the files as requested.

Hello all,

My computer recently caught a virus and I had to reformat my computer. I have reformatted this machine before without a single problem.

First problems appeared after the initial re-format and install. Installing various games and drivers would wind up alerting me that various dll files were missing. After following a 10? step guide to troubleshoot these errors nothing worked and the final step was to conduct another fresh install of windows.

I was also considering that maybe my hard drive was going bad so I did a fresh install on my second hard drive and the same problems occurred.

I did however, manage to get one of the installs to remain relatively stable, but it still has the same problems.

And finally, I purchased a brand new SSD (samsung 830 series) and did a new fresh install to it. Everything seemed to go fine until I began running windows updates (after getting Security essentials installed and my video drivers). Windows updates got hung up on the on screen in application install screen in the middle of approximately 130 updates. I then clicked the stop installation button and nothing happened. The updates screen would not change. I left it alone for awhile and came back. Still nothing. I then told the computer to restart. It then proceeded to hang on the shutdown screen. (i let this remain overnight hoping it would shut down) It did not. I was forced to hard reset the system and now the same issue is happening after installing microsofts fix it app... Read more

Answer:Fresh windows 7 install, windows updates fails and other problems

Work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

If you didn't follow the Best Practices for Clean Reinstall after resetting BIOS to defaults, setting SATA controller to AHCI, unplugging all other HD's and peripherals.

Drivers are handled differently in Win7 than before so make sure to read and understand that part. If you changed out any from what Win7 wants then I would do it over. If you're running with the installer chipset then you can try the one from the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC or mobo.

As you work through the Troubleshooting steps post back results as there may be other steps suggested.

Hi,

I've been running XP on my machine for several years and the latest reinstall went very smoothly until I updated my bios. It may be unrelated to updating my bios but this seems to be the only change I had made at the time. It prevented a lot of applications from running, from Windows Live Messenger, to various games e.t.c.

I assumed it was to do with my bios, so I pulled the battery out of the motherboard (also shorted the 3 pin switch thing). This didn't seem to make any difference.

I recently installed Windows 7 (x86) on the same hard drive and partition, expecting this to cure the problem and start fresh, however Windows 7 seems to be having a similar problem in that I get errors on Windows Update (8007065E,800B0100 and 80070003). I've tried manually installing some of the failed updates too and just get a "failed" message.

This makes me assume that it's either still a problem with the bios, or perhaps with my hard drive.

Does anyone know of any software I can use to perhaps scan for issues with the hard drive, or with the bios?

Regards,
 

Answer:Solved: Windows Update won't install some updates (XP or Windows 7 on same machine)

Well, after trying all the fixes available on the internet for those particular error codes to no avail, I ran Kill Disk on the partition, re-installed Windows 7 and it appears to be running smoothly, with all service packs and updates installing fine

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

About a month ago, I used the built-in Windows 10 recovery method to reinstall Windows 10. I still had a few glitches from my original Windows 7 installation, and these have been resolved by the reinstall.

One thing I've noticed, however, is that I'm getting an error message whenever I try to install the definition update for Windows Defender:

Definitie-update voor Windows Defender - KB2267602 (definitie 1.215.1024.0) - Fout 0x80070643

I already tried sfc /scannow, and it didn't find anything that required fixing. I also tried MicrosoftFixit.msi and NetFxRepairTool.exe, because Googling the error message brought me the news that it was related to the .NET framework.

To be clear: I don't use Windows Defender right now. I got Norton Security installed and it serves me well. I know some people consider it a resource hog, but I've tried Avira as a recommendation by Tom's Guide and it was even worse. My Norton still lasts over 200 days so I have plenty of time if I want to replace it by then. However, I do want Windows to be fully updated, and not having that update finished just stands out like a red ship in a sea of white.

I've considered that this error might be because of Norton, but I didn't have issues before resetting Windows, so I don't see why it would be Norton that suddenly throws a fit about it.

How do I fix this?

So I, today, reformatted my PC.

After installing some bare essentials (anti virus and firewall mainly) I then loaded up the website for windows update.

I was prompted to install service pack 3 (after the windows installer update), so I did before anything else. After I restarted, I went to the update site again to do the remaining updates, but after they were downloaded, every install failed.

The same is happening with the Windows Live Installer (as I wish to install windows live messenger). However, I could install Internet Explorer 8 and Windows Media Player 11 with no problems.

Any help would be much, much appreciated. Anything I can do to help with the troubleshooting, just say.

Thank you.

Answer:Windows 10 Updates error - Can't install Updates

Hello jtimer,

I was having problems with my printer drivers in Device Manager after upgrading to Windows 10. Both were not working. I went to HP Support, enter my device in the search box there, and downloaded the new (July 2015) Full Feature software package for my HP Officejet 5740 All-in-One Printer and then rebooted. Afterwards, I went back into Device Manage, expanded Printer, and now had my two new drivers working. There was also two Unknown Devices there, which I deleted. Most likely, the old drivers that didn't work after the upgrade. My printer is working fine now, but I'm also having the same problem with two failed Windows Updates for the printer. Since we both have Windows 10 Home Edition, there is no way to turn off Windows Update. I did not find any way to hide those failed updates, either. So, they would not keep trying to install.

Hopefully, one of our more experienced members will have a solution for this.

John

BACKGROUND

I've developed this tutorial because I'm the type of person that likes to experiment with things on my computer. This has resulted in my having to re-install my operating system numerous times. Of course with each install comes the myriad of Security and other Updates that need to be re-installed as well.

I grew weary of the amount of time it took to search for, download and install those updates and wanted those Updates to be, somehow, integrated into the installation media. It would make things a lot easier and take considerably less time. So, I looked on the internet for a way to do so. Well, I couldn't find a way that worked for me so, I came up with this method.

Setting things up took a bit of time initially but, it saved a lot of time when I needed to re-install Windows.

This tutorial will contain instructions, screen shots, download links for software and additional information.

There are those who would rather have a bootable flash drive because they're much faster than DVD but, this tutorial does not cover that. It's for creating integrated optical media only.

Also, please note that I have to use my computer in a modified High Contrast Black Theme because of bilateral cataracts so, the screen shot colors will likely be different from the screens that are produced on your computer while performing the instructions in this tutorial.

So I started using good old lenovo thinkpad t420 and windows 8. The thing is, it runs so slow like I had to wait 30 seconds to enter desktop from app tray.
I don't know if it's because it's an old unused laptop or something, but apparently it has tons of windows updates, like 150 major updates, at first it does it automatically, and it freezes in failure configuration updates, so I changed the setting so that I could do it manually, like 10 things at a time. It still does the stupid failure configuration loops, i usually leave it for hours, eventually it'll got through.
What confuses me is that although it got through, it's listed like this in the windows update menu in control panel "updates were installed : today at 3:10 (failed) " like wth? so is it installed or not? The updates list diminishes tho, just so you know.
So should i keep doing this or just un-install the os because I'm interested in down-grading it to win 7?

Answer:Shoul I install these 150 Windows Updates or move to Windows 7?

If you want to move to Windows 7 then there is no need to install all these updates - which appear to be installing.

I have the preview installed on a spare computer. I was out of town last week and noticed that some new builds were made available while I was away. I've checked for the last two nights to see if I could update (my computer is set to the Fast ring for updates). It shows that there are two updates.
One is a Windows Defender definitions update that shows it is installing, but it has been stuck at 3% for the past two days. The other update is for one of the newer builds (I don't remember the number off the top of my head). I am currently on build 10130.
My first night back from vacation, I got a notification that a restart was scheduled for 11:50 PM. This was about 11:35 when I turned on the computer. The restart never happened. In fact, I've never seen an automatic restart take place to update any of my Windows 10 preview builds after receiving this notification. Even manually rebooting the computer doesn't trigger the updates to complete installation.
It seems that Microsoft has stripped all the manual controls from Windows Update in Windows 10. Does anyone know a way I can cancel the current updates that seem to be stuck so that the new build can be installed? For the last build update, I manually downloaded the latest ISO from the Windows Insider page because I had trouble with the automatic update process. Is anyone else having this issue, or is my problem that I'm running the preview on a Pentium 4 computer that was built for Windows XP?

Answer:How do I install Windows Updates from the Windows 10 preview?

I have seen mine get stuck, but normally a restart fixes the issue. I'll restart, sometimes it will have the update and restart option, and then start the settings -> windows update and it normally checks for new updates and gets rid of invalid ones.

Hello!

This is actually perfectly normal (although not necessarily expected)

When you install Seven SP1, almost all prior updates will appear to disappear. This is completely normal. They are still on your system, and protecting you, and this happens to everyone. This is completely by design from Microsoft.

Most users will be left with about 14 updates, subject to variation by machine.

Now It will not go to ANY screens other than black screen. I tried safe mode, commandt prompt etc. It will not let me do ANYTHING. It just keeps going back to the same screen. I tried windows normally and repair. Both crash back to the same screen. The laptop is about 3 years old. Ican't type anything for commandt prompt. It won't let me. Thanks for any insight on this frustrating problem!!

Answer:Windows crashes after install Windows updates

Go back to the Safe Mode option screen select Advanced Options "repair Your Computer, Next, System Restore. Select a System restore point to the date or time, or point before installing any updates.

My system seems to be damage in some way, and I am no longer able to install updates and when I tried to go to Windows 10, that did not work either. I can not download SURT, so I do not have a SURT log, but I have the CBS.log file from the last sfc/scannow.

It seems that something is amiss, but I can't pinpoint it in the log.

I have also tried to use the original disks to repair the Windows 7, but that too fails, as it seems to be using the same things as the Windows 10 upgrade does.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have 2 personal home computers running Windows 7 Professional within the last month or so. The first PC is one that I use for experimentation and I can take greater risks with it. My newer one is necessary for me to remote in to my work and also do my
personal bookkeeping. The 2 computers don't connect together but each uses a DSL Connection one at a time so no problem with cross infection. All the first PC does is search for updates for a long time and finds nothing though I know that it has
been April 2016 since it received Updates. I have searched several IT sites and there seems to be some chatter that there may be a global Windows Update issue with Windows 7. First, does anyone know of any reported issues affecting Windows 7 Updates? I ran
McAfee AV Scan and Malwareybytes scans and found nothing. One site suggested loading 4 KBs: 3083710, 3102810, 3138612, & 3145739. I ran the Standalone Updater for all of them though the third one had already been installed. Per the Tech Site I set WU to
never check for updates and rebooted. Note that the Updates all did install using the Standalone. Ran WU again and got the same searching for Updates for over an hour. Other websites work fine. I turned off McAfee Real Time Scanning and Firewall but still
no patches found. I then went to the Microsoft site and ran the Updates Fixit. Rebooted with the same results. I haved saved the Windows Update Log and Application Event Log. However, I can see how to upload t... Read more

Back story:
I am part of a large organization that has a large amount of computers on our domain controller. I have Administrative rights to the computers only, and network access rights on our network. I keep a number of computers up to date, including various 3rd-party programs (i.e. java, flash, etc), and I currently manually remotely connect to each computer and install the updates to the programs from a network share, then run Windows update, select all the critical updates (as well as all the applicable optional updates), then disconnect and move on to the next one. Needless to say, time quickly adds up.

Goals:
use WinRM to:
determine which computers to issue the following using a text file:
install EXEs remotely from a network share using the local (issuing user's) logged in credentials
apply any important windows updates

-Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit Service Pack 1

Hello there, I've just built a new computer and am having trouble installing Windows updates on my fresh install.

When I go to Windows Update, I get the following message:

--
Install new Windows Update software

To check for updates, you must first install an update for Windows Update. Your automatic updating settings will not change

To install the update, Windows update will automatically close and re-open.
--

When I click 'Install now', the window disappears and I am then confronted with the following message:

--
Windows could not search for new updates

An error occurred while checking for new updates for your computer.

Error(s) found:
Code 800F081F Windows Update encountered an unknown error.
--

Does anyone know how I can get updates to work? Is there some way that I can manually download and install this update for Windows Update?

Thank you.

Answer:Unable to install updates on fresh Windows 7 SP1 install

I'm guessing that your installation media already contained SP1, is that correct? Since this is a clean install my first thought is something happened during the installation process to damage or corrupt some system files. I'd try the Microsoft troubleshooter first.

Troubleshoot problems with installing updates - WindowsUpdate_dt000

If that doesn't work I'd try running the System Update Readiness Tool.

What is the System Update Readiness Tool?

If still no joy, and only because this is a very recent clean install, I'd just reinstall Windows 7 again. If the problem persists I'd start looking into the possibility of a bad installation disk, hardware issues, etc. Please post back if any of this helps or not.

I've been trying to get windows installed again on my laptop after I formatted the disk to start over. I created a usb installer using their special utility and ran it. I have also attempted to create the image using winUSB on my ubuntu partition with the exact same results. Every time I run it it freezes at some arbitrary percentage of "getting files ready for installation". I've seen a few threads on different forums that all either had no resolution or had the resolution "I tried it a bunch of times and it worked once."

Some seem to think the issue lies in a bad iso image... not hard to believe the asshats at microsoft would forget to do a checksum on the download, but I also find the claim incredible in the literal sense because every time I read it there was no evidence or logic presented as to why a bad iso might be the case here. (can't blame people. The installer literally freezes without giving any information as to what is going on)

Quite frankly I don't particularly care much since ubuntu does all the things I want (without the installation issues, driver problems, and random freezing/BSODing/bloatware/intrusive privacy settings that come with windows), however my OCD is telling me that this should be a ridiculously simply problem which shouldn't take half a dozen unfinished threads online to get to the bottom of, so I'm following this issue regardless of my need or lack thereof of a solution.

Anyone else have a similar problem and actually f... Read more

The title pretty much says it all. I stopped receiving automated downloads of Windows 7 updates in Dec 2016 (even though my system is checked for receiving automated updates). I went to Windows Catalog and found updates released after Dec 2016, downloaded
them, and when I try to install, the infamous "searching for updates on this computer" pops up and does nothing. I can't even cancel it. I have to right-click on the program line at the bottom of the screen and exit it that way.

Any suggestions as to how to proceed?

I received an upgrade version of Windows 8 Pro from school, and get all the way through the installation process, but for some reason, during sections when it does the "windows must restart" it restarts, and never "comesback on" ie, the screen doesn't come back on, and it doesn't boot windows... I have to hold my power button to start it back up again.

When I got through all of that, and does the rest of the installation process, and it starts to boot under windows 8, it gets through most of the steps, and it gets to Getting Ready... when it gets to 25% the computer freezes, there is no hard drive activity, nothing happens. I have to restart my computer by holding the power button, again. It's stopped at 25% twice already.

Well at that time windows rolls back to Windows 7, and tells me that it couldn't install because of an error. Any suggestions? Has someone seen this problem in other threads?

I have Vista Home Premium 32-bit, on Dell Inspiron 6400.

After a repair install, I now have two problems:

- Although there are 75 Windows Updates in the list, I have tried several times over the last two days to install these. So far, only a few are marked "Successful". The great majority are marked "Failed".
- There is no SP1 available in the list of updates.

Here is the history:

- My laptop was pre-loaded with Vista (no SP1). The OEM DVD was also SP0.
- I installed SP1 when it became available.
- A few days ago, I neede to do a repair install. So I uninstalled SP1, and did a repair install as specified in Brink's tutorial:
Repair Install For Vista
- As far as I know, the repair completed successfully. There were no "Files discarded by Windows Upgrade" (Maybe this is important!). I was not asked for my product key, or asked to activate Vista.
- Immediately after the repair, I launched Windows Update, and found the two problems noted above.

BTW: To the best of my knowledge, my laptop is working fine. The minor glitches that prompted the repair install have disappeared

I would be grateful for any assistance.

Answer:Repair install: windows updates won't install

Hello Oldgrantonian,

There is little problem. You can't repair Vista sp1 using Vista dvd without sp1. I guess you will have to clean install Vista using your dvd and next install Service Pack 1.

You can download standalone SP1 on the Microsoft site. Download details: Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Five Language Standalone (KB936330)

Hope it was helpful.

Cheers...

I have have tried deleting my updates folder and download again but same thing happens. Is there a fix for this? It's annoying when my computer reboots because they can't be installed.

For the past few weeks the following three Microsoft updates have repeatedly tried to download/install, but each time the process seems to "reset" and I am notified once again that these updates are ready. Each time, the process appears to complete but then the same updates keep coming up. Clearly they are not being installed or are not registering as such. I've also noticed since this started happening I have not received any other updates which is unusual over a period of several weeks. I have the impression I am "stuck" until I can either force these to install or tell Windows to forget about them and move on. Any ideas?

Whenever the  system attepts to update it downloads and installs the updates and then requests a shutdown. When the shutdown proceeds it usually updates 1, then tries the 2nd and then immediately shuts down. I do not know if this is virus behavior or whether it's just abnormal windows behavior.

It sounds like you may have something blocking this service.Maybe going back to a previous restore point then trying to update? This might cause you to loose data if you have done much since then. The other posibility is a virus that is blocking the update software/explorer from opening.

I have run through all three steps of this solution:

The final step of the above link involves uninstalling and reinstalling the .NET Framwork (whatever that is). After I had reinstalled it, Microsoft updates found some .NET updates, which all installed OK.

However, the updates that were previously failing still fail to install, giving the same error code 80070643.

Please will some kind expert advise whether I have a malware problem and what I should do next?

Thanks in advance!
 

Answer:Windows Updates will not install

Your logs are all clean. I suggest that you now post in the Software Forum for non-malware problems.

Also you should complete the below to cleanup from the READ & RUN ME.

Since you are not having malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:

We recommend you keep Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for scanning/removal of malware.

Renable your Disk Emulation software with Defogger if you had disabled it in step 4 of the READ & RUN ME.
Go to add/remove programs and uninstall HijackThis. If you don't see it or it will not uninstall, don't worry about it. Just move on to the next step.
If running Vista, Win 7 or Win 8, it is time to make sure you have reenabled UAC by double clicking on the C:\MGtools\enableUAC.reg file and allowing it to be added to the registry.
Now goto the C:\MGtools folder and find the MGclean.bat file. Double click ( if running Vista, Win7, or Win 8 Right Click and Run As Administrator ) on this file to run this cleanup program that will remove files and folders related to MGtools and some other items from our cleaning procedures.

Any other miscellaneous tools we may have had you install or download can be uninstalled and deleted.

I've tried installing certain ones, even some ones at a time, but the results are the same. Download complete. Please restart. But the update never happens and I don't get an error message. Here's what they list:

Windows Visual Studio 2005 Update Service Pack 1 - X
3 Security Updates
3 Updates
Service Pack 1 - X

Ignore the X's since no one can really figure out how to install Service Pack 1 on my laptop.

Answer:Cannot install various Windows Updates

Have you downloaded the Service Pack file manually?Windows 7 SP1Download it and install it manually.

I just installed windows Xp Home SP3 and drivers.

I then tried to install IE8 and I never got past the first screen downloading updates.

I unsuccessfully tried to install windows updates.

I manually tried to install WGA tool, and that didn't help

I manually installed net framework 2 and sp2 and still I couldn't install windows updates.

I have been on the windows updates page for 3 hours searching for updates and it's still searching.

Any help would be great.

I know that xp support end in April 2014, but did Microsoft stop updating Xp already?

Is there a way to copy all the updates for Xp to a dvd? once microsoft stops updates, in case windows xp crashes?

Answer:Not able to install IE8 or do windows updates

Hi there,

Does the computer give you any error message when you try to install windows updates? Try this windows updates fix: How do I reset Windows Update components?

Hope everything works out well for you.

I was using Latitude D600 and Latitude D620. After completeing a Repair install of Windows XP, Windows update will not install. I didn't get any error messages. It downloads all of the updates but fails to install.

After two days of trying, I'm VERY HAPPY to report that the method below works!!!!! (Method 1)

Good Luck.

This all started when I started managing a couple PCs that are supposed to stay on 24/7. Users would shut them down, because they thought that was the thing to do. Obviously updates were extremely out-of-date. I got stuck on Office SP2, where it was looking

to install again and again. I looked at the Office build number and saw SP2 was installed so I hid the update.
Looking at this PC again, it's doing the same thing: installing the same updates over and over. Checking "Installed Updates", they are not installed. Update History says everything was successful. I've run fsutil resource setautoreset
true %systemdrive%\ and rebooted with no effect.
When these updates want to re-install, it says they must download first. They clearly download far too fast, so I figured they're already downloaded. According to Windows Update's log, each update says something like "file already exists, no need to
download". I stopped the Windows Update service, cleared /SoftwareDistribution/Download and restarted the service. That also had no effect (the log said that it was downloading the file, rather than pulling a local copy).
I just finished an SFC scan, and it found no problems. All PCs are pulling from ou... Read more

Answer:i can't install my updates for Windows XP 64 Bit

ummm... have you actually tried going to the Windows update site and downloading the patches? If you do, it will at least give you an eror code as to why they fail.

I have to turn my firewall off in order to download my patches, but I don't know if that could be your problem or not.

I know that some of them causes problems with a computer. Which updates I shouldn't install?

Answer:Which windows updates I should not install

Install them all, unless you know of a specific issue with your computer's hardware configuration.
Microsoft wouldn't release a patch that just "causes problems" on all computers.
