Preferred Solution: How can I verify if the Nov 13th Update is installed?

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.)

Hello Antares,

You can check to see what build number you have. If you have build 10586, then you have it installed.

Answer:Win 7 Black SOD after 13th may update.

Its very possible...If you can boot into safe mode, run system restore to a point before you installed the updates, then reboot... if this doesnt help, insert your installation media into your DVD drive and do a repair install.. Hope this helps...

I've been downloading the new Win 10 update for 45 mins. but it's still at 0%. What's the file size for this update? if anyone here has already updated to version 1511, 10586 i would like to ask how long did it take for the download to finish and the installation process duration. My Internet is at 100-300kbps.
Any estimate on how long this would take?

Answer:What is the File Size for the nov. 13th (build 10586) update?

About 2.9gb for Win 10 Pro. Now MS Update servers still facing huge download.

Good day,
 
I have an Hp desktop running Windows 7 sp1 Home edition..   started auto update on the 13th,  when i got home later that day it was stuck at 33 percent or so.  left overnight 10 hrs.   no progress.  Shutdown and restarted not a great option but, unit would not do anything else..   Now it tries to install for an hour then does a roll back to previous. It will finish that after 1-2 hours. Then go into shut down.. will never shut down left it for 24 hours no result.. restarts and will be in the loop.  Safe mode same results.   If I can avoid rebuilding it would be great but.
 
Thanks

Hi,
I recently had a hard drive die on me and after finally getting windows 7 to boot up again I'm left with a lot of programs that used to be on my H:\ drive in the Windows Start menu as well as in the Windows 7 Programs & Features program.

Is there any program or Windows function available that would allow me to auto verify that a program or item exists both on the windows start menu as well as physically on the hard disk where it should be (according to the Start menu) and also verify the programs that are listed in my Programs & Features window also physically exist on the hard drive where they should be so that I can clean up all these program listings in both the start menu as well as Programs & Features window.

I also need a program that will properly clean my registry for any programs that have been installed but no longer exist on my hard drive, is there such a program and if so what do people recommend?

While I could certainly google for programs that might work, I'd rather not end up choosing one that might install more malware/spyware on my computer while doing it's work. So, I come here to find out from people that know of these things.

Thanks

Answer:Is there a way to auto verify installed programs?

Although, I cannot answer all of your questions, I can answer the question about your registry. You may not agree, but almost all the senior people at this site would. It is not necessary to clean your registry on a constant basis, if fact it may do more harm then good. Those left over remnants do no or very little damage. If you still want to clean the registry, use Ccleaner.,it is free. It is the most safe registry cleaner. If you untick the first two entries (select which areas to clean)you will be running almost zero risk of problems.

How do I find out what this key means: H09468SP

When I check Toshiba EMEA for my unit details it shows this as the pre-installed software package.

The reason I ask is that my installed software is different from the license key and I would like to know what is supposedly the official Toshiba software.

Answer:Pre-installed software key -how to verify what operating system it is?

Hi

I think you misunderstood something;
The H09468SP number is the Toshiba Recovery CD/DVD number and it?s not a license key or anything else?

It?s a recovery disk number and can be helpful if you want to order an new Recovery disk from Toshiba!

I don't know if this is the right spot to post this but every time I go to play any of my newer games it either says "Spooge driver not found. Verify DirectX is properly installed" or it freezes when it goes to load the game and the only way for it to unfreeze is by unplugging it.

I am currently using Java version 6 update 35 (6u35) 32-bit and it works fine. I am using Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, Firefox 15.0.1 32-bit and IE 9 32-bit.

Secunia Online Software Inspector loads its Java program and runs in about 20 seconds and gives a full report. The Oracle "Verify Java Version" web site completes in about 2 seconds and says my Java 6u35 is the recommended version.
However, if I install any version of Java 7 (7u3, 7u5, 7u7) it fails to work at all for either Firefox or IE.

Secunia Online Software Inspector fails to load the Java program complaining about an unverified source. (This is the same Java program that works with Java 6u35.)

The Oracle "Verify Java Version" web site times out with an error

ClassNotFoundExecption / jreVerification.class

I have completely removed the current version of Java and even run JavaRA (with reboot after removal) to remove all traces before installing Java 7.
I have removed both the 32-bit and 64-bit installations.
I have run the Java Control Panel applet and set the Advanced options to allow FF and IE.

Answer:Java 7 (any update) will not verify with Win 7 Pro x64

Update: Java 7u9 is now working on my Win 7 Pro x64 SP1 computer

After reading a post from another forum member I visited the ZoneAlarm Forum and found several posts about a conflict between Java 7 (any update) and the ZoneAlarm firewall.

So I switched to Comodo free Internet Security Premium Firewall & A/V.
Then I installed Java 7u9 right over the old Java 6u37.

The Oracle Java "Verify Java Version" web page verified the new Java 7u9 installation and I was able to run the Secunia OSI correctly.
This is a strange conflict between Java, ZoneAlarm and Win 7 (x64?)

Win XP SP3 x32 WORKS with Java 7u9 and ZoneAlarm Free firewall

Win 7 SP1 x64 WORKS with Java 6u37 and ZoneAlarm Free firewall

Win 7 SP1 x64 FAILS with Java 7u9 and ZoneAlarm Free firewall

Win 7 SP1 x64 WORKS with Java 7u9 and Comodo Free firewall

I will let ZonaAlarm and Oracle point fingers at each other until this problem is fixed.

Hello all,

Does anybody have an answer to this question, anybody else experiencing the same problem, and/or similar issues with Java 7 (update 4)

I recently updated to SSD and finished off installing everything today. When I installed Java I run the verification and it will not verify at all. Never come across this before with Java and I am a little stuck because I don't understand that is causing this to happen.

First of all I thought the cause of the problem was to do with MSIE9 scripts plug-ins were not enabled. They all all enabled bot on MSIE and Firefox, the same for Chrome as well. Back in May I installed Java 7 and it was working fine. I have installed it again today on SSD's and it will not work correctly. It will not verify at all. not in either browsers and I am clueless because I don't have any answers apart from uninstalling and trying Java 6 and see what happens.

The same goes for Java 7 Update 4 for MSIE9 x64 browsers.

Thanks in advance

Answer:Java 7 Update 4 will not verify after installation

Works OK here, FF and IE9

Thursday night a red box appeared on my computer screen. lt locked my computer, would not allow me to close it or remove it. It contained a text along the lines of "It's Here! The new update for windows 10. This apparent virus would not allow task Manager to operate and could not be removed from the computer. To prevent the virus from proceeding to damage my computer, I shut down the computer, un-plugged it and removed the ethernet cable to prevent additional damage. I spent an entire day researching how to remove such a persistent virus.
Then I discovered that coincidentally Microsoft issued an update to windows 10 the same evening as I experienced the infection with this virus. So I wonder:
Would Microsoft create a virus that locks my computer and demands my cooperation with its operation while supplying no authentication and no opportunity to learn anything about it?

Hello,

The BIOS update for the L750 failled with a "VERIFY ERROR". I downloaded the BIOS update again and got the same error.

I wanted to submit a support ticket to let tech support know that the BIOS update doesn't work, but low and behold, the support ticket creator doesn't accept my combination of model number/serial number.

So, apart from picking up the telephone, how do I get a message to Toshiba?

Cheers

Answer:Satellite L750 - BIOS update failed with a verify error

Hi buddy,

May I ask you why you try to update the BIOS? Do you have any issues?

As you probably know BIOS update is always a little bit risky because it rewrites the ROM module and if something goes wrong the ROM module can be destroyed and you are not able to start the computer. So this update should only be done if you have problems with the computer otherwise forget it please.

Remember: Never touch a running system!!! ;)

We are using IE11, with a proxy server using a PAC script. After updating to 11.0.41 (KB4014661), some HTTPS sites display an error:


"Revocation Information for the security certificate for this site is not available. Do you want to proceed?"

-This error comes up AFTER the site has already successfully loaded, without any user intervention or prompts.

-Occurs with various sites, with different commercial CAs. Have verified that some of the root CAs of affected sites are already in the trusted store.

-IE can see the full certificate chain, and states all certificates are OK (verified by clicking on the padlock icon & view certificate details)
-If I disable the PAC file and go direct to the same proxy server (enable 'use a proxy server'), the revocation error does not occur.

-Versions of IE11 prior to update 11.0.41 do not display this error, when using the same PAC file and the same proxy server. Does not occur in Chrome or FireFox set to use system proxy settings, for the same sites.

So I must be coming across as total idot but let me point out I have built a fair few computers in my time, and although not professional I do generally know I am doing so the I can only think it is because it is Friday the 13th I have had the following problems, please bear with me there is a point.

1) I install memory of 1gb. Despite it being compatible it fails and the computer wont post. i replace the memory all works except:
2) I Install a psu when its linked up to the DVD or HDD caddy the computer wont start
3) I install a new PSU - the system boots up for about 10 secs until I realise the cpu fan is not turning.
4) Not to worry becuase the HDD caddy has burst into flames, oh and the HDD has been totally fried.

now I am pretty sure I have tracked the problem back to the caddy, and the rest of the stuff should work okay, but I am at the point when I have to throw another block of money at the system to buy a new HDD. Is it really worth buying a new HDD just to find on install that the cpu was fried when the fan didnt work, etc etc. I can post to the monitor yippie, theres no smoke anymore, the cpu is recorded as a 3.2 and the memory is 1/2 a gb of DDR2. But I am not sure what the chances are of my rig having survived all its tribulations

If it will post, you're part of the way there.... didn't we discuss the chance of some faulty wiring in the caddy or DVD a few days ago??? Hmmmm.... If I remember, you said the caddy OK Anyway, chances are all your parts are OK. Celeron CPU's don't reach critical temps too quickly, so if you at least had the heat sink on it and you powered down in under 7-10 seconds, it should be OK. The only way to know for sure is to hook up a HD (hopefully an older used one, just in case) and install your OS and software, and see how the thing runs..... good luck my friend

I'm trying to save a batch of HTM files I created using Dreamweaver to a CD ROM for a Uni presentation next week. Originally, I was able to save them OK but then I found that I had to reroute the SRC links for the images on the versions of the files that I had copied to the CD.

After I'd redone this stuff, I tried to resave the CD files only to be told 'You do not have permission to save in this directory. See the administrator to obtain permission. Do you want to save to My Documents instead?'

Saving to My Documents just sends me back to square one concerning the srcs.

Bagle the 13th spread defies belief
By John Leyden
Posted: 15/03/2004 at 16:29 GMT

To nobody's great surprise, another Windows-infecting mass mailing worm began spreading over the Net last weekend.

Bagle-N is spreading rapidly and most anti-virus firms rate it as medium to high-level risk. Email filtering outfit MessageLabs has intercepted 11,105 copies of the worm since Saturday.

The worm normally spreads by email but it also capable of propagation across P2P file sharing networks. Bagle-N arrives in either a password-protected zip or rar file, and the password is either included in the body of the email, or in an image file attached to the email.

Apart from the image-file ploy (a minor 'innovation' in virus writing), Bagle is little different from its 13 predecessors - not least in the fact that it infects Windows PCs only.

Bagle-N commonly comes in email messages with variable subject and attachment names. The ‘from’ field of the email is spoofed so that it appears to come from a potential victim's sysadmin. Message bodies warn that the user's email account "might be disabled" or suffer some other odious consequence if a user fails to open an attachment.

If you open the worm's infectious archive file you may infect your PC. The worm disables many security software packages and includes a backdoor component which listens on TCP port 2556. Bagle-N scours the hard drives of infected computers for email addresses. It then se... Read more

Through our sources close to Microsoft, we can now confirm that the Windows 7 RTM build that will be chosen over the next few days will be officially announced on July 13th, 2009, the same day as the WPC09 (Worldwide Partner Conference) will take place in New Orleans.
As I just mentioned, Microsoft is still in the process of testing and choosing from the RTM candidate builds as they need to ensure that all show-stopper bugs present in the OS have been eradicated to ensure as much of a smooth, bug-free release as possible. TechNet, MSDN, and other partner connections will be getting their hands on the RTM build shortly after, if not on the same day.
Ever since many got to experience Windows 7 with many of it?s new features and performance improvements particularly with 6801 and Rafael?s Blue Badge tool, most fell in love with the OS. Stay tuned for our in-depth Inside Windows 7 series, which will highlight and discuss many of 7?s improvements over Vista, along with our RTM build review complete with benchmarks once the build surfaces on TechNet.

Hi,

Firstly thanks for your help.

I have a problem with windows update kb3045999. It has caused a lot of problems on my system, with programs not loaded after booting (eg notepad, IE etc return error code The application was unable to start (0xc0000018). I understand that this is a known error and many have posted about it online. I can reboot my computer a number of times and eventually the programmes will work as normal, however that is a bit of a pain.

From reading online it appears the way to fix the problem is to uninstall the update. I thought I had done that but the error kept happening. I then had the idea of reinstalling the update and uninstalling again in-case it did not uninstall correctly, however when I try to install the update it advises me that it is already installed and when I try to uninstall it using the wusa /uninstall command I am advised that the update is not installed.

Any ideas on what to do?

Thanks

Michael

Hi all,Have used the Google Toolbar with IE 6.0 for ages now and think its great. After a while of browsing today, I noticed that it had added some hearts to the background of the search box, and that the 1st O of the Google logo + the 'Search Web' icon on the toolbar had changed to hearts also. However, whenever I now double click the IE icon to launch the browser and connect to the internet, it doesn't launch the connect dialog box, says that it cannot connect, and askes me to click the 'try again' or 'work offline' button, none of which connect me to the internet. I have to manually connect by going to Start>Connect To>Freeserve Anytime. It's OK I suppose, but it's a pain. I've checked in Internet Options and Freeserve Anytime is listed as default and 'Automatically dial my default connection' is selected. I havent changed anything or added any new hardware or software, so it must be the Google toolbar. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, but it just changes itself to the valentines version almost instantly. How can I solve this?Thanks,Andrew P :o)

It's 3/13/2009 and I'm returning from a sevice call where the most
awful thing occurred. Computer was running slow. It had AVG v8
and Lavasoft AdAware and I ran a quick scan with SuperAntiSpyware
which came up clean. I uninstalled RegCure and Security Advisor.
I deleted Temp files and Temp Internet Files.

Upon rebooting the PC, and coming up to the Windows XP desktop,
a dos style cmd window popped up which indicated that hundreds
of files were being deleted.

Upon further investigation, I discovered that all the Favorites from
IE were gone and only the empty folders remained. Outlook
Express Email was wiped clean, all the video and picture files were
also deleted.
I'm currently trying to recover all the lost files using PhotoRec with
the hard drive slaved to another clean computer.

Question is, what caused this to happen?
Is this a Friday the 13th type virus or was it caused by RegCure or
Security Advisor?

i've been cleaning computers for many years and never saw
anything like this before that targets all your most critical data
and deletes it. Wow!!

Any ideas?

Hello.

Personally, I avoid reg cleaners. Some members of TGF agree with me; some TGF members agree with you. Some of us like apple pie. Some of us do not. I am not trying to trivialize decisions about reg cleaners.
No antimalware program will catch each piece of malware. SAS is good. If SAS updates their definitions and the computer encounters a new malware that hit the streets at 1201, poof, the PC is infected.

So I have been trying to work through my Windows Update issues, turns out it was majorly broken. I think I have it mostly working now. My issue I am having is down to one specific update that I downloaded a separate installer for. It failed partway through installation and now I am completely stuck.

I am trying to get KB3033929 installed, it is required for me to install Oculus software. Oculus installer says I do not have the hotfix and will not install. Running the Microsoft WUSA installer says KB3033929 is already installed and cannot be installed. Running the command-line 'wusa /uninstall "package_path"' says that the update is not installed so it can't be uninstalled. Running the command-line 'wusa /install "package_path"' says that the update *is* installed already.

So it is clearly stuck in some indeterminate state where it is simultaneously installed and not installed and I am going to have to do some manual cleaning I assume. I am comfortable manually editing whatever I have to do, I just don't know where or how to fix this. I haven't been able to find anything with this specific problem. Anyone have any ideas how to proceed short of an industrial sized shredder?

The "Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 for x64-based systems" fails with error code 9C59.

No - but you should download/install ThinkVantage System Update (for Windows 7) and have it download and install the proper T43 drivers for Windows 7.  Then you'll have sound.  :^)  That's what I did for my T43.  All works fine.

Hello guys...I'm hoping someone can lead me to a quick and simple fix with this one. I am trying to optimize my sister's PC and am having an issue trying to complete the update.

First of all I find that there is an update available for this computer called Office XP Service Pack 3 and is highly recommended. So I follow the prompts to begin download and installation of the update. After a few minutes I will get a window that pops up and says "The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available Insert the "Microsoft Office XP Professional with front page" disk.

Obviously I don't have any such disk and so I click cancel. After about 20 seconds I get the update window that pops up and says that Updates could not be installed.........Office XP Service Pack 3.

any suggestions?

Answer:Update could not be installed

My experience with Office XP...is that the CD is required anytime major modifications are made. The CD has a lot of the optional features and files which must be accesses when changes occur.I have a CD so it's not a nuisance for me.If Office came preinstalled...I don't know how those versions work.You might visit the Office website and just do a direct download of the SP, http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...ylang=en...then install it from the desktop.Louis

Now I bet you can guess what the problem is... Vista 32 bit wont use all my ram.. from what I see its actually only using 2gb of the 6gb (what a waste!)

to install the OS I got a copy of XP from one of my gaming buddies then bought a 32 bit Update disk from my school (ultimate 32 bit). Because its from my school and a certain licensed copy it only came with the 32 bit disk... my question is this, do you think my key would work If I were to get a 64 bit disk? If it were to work could I install it on my current setup (vista ultimate 32 bit service package 2, most disks from what I understand come in sp1...) or would I have to start over from scratch?

Hello Dan, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Very nice system.

Yes, you can use your retail 32-bit Vista Ultimate upgrade key with any retail 64-bit Vista Ultimate disc to install it. Unfortunately you will have to do a clean install when going to 64-bit from 32-bit. This tutorial below will show you how to do a clean install from a upgrade Vista to help make it easier to do.

First thigns first, it sounds like you've used the same key for two systems at the same time. That's a no-no. Only one system per key is allowed per the EULA.

My computer has the automatic update feature enabled and periodically I get the yellow balloon in my systray saying there are updates available, so I click to download and install them. I keep getting "Security Update for Windows XP (KB981852)" is ready to install. I clickl to install and I get the message that it was successfully installed. If I look at the hisptory of updates, it appears to have been successfully installed 15 times, but it keeps coming up as needding to be installed. I went into the add/remove function on the control panel and there it is only listed once. I removed it and then re-installed the update but the yellow balloon always says it needs to be installed.

It is like the computer isn't registering the updates. I was never prompted to restart the computer but I did anyway and that hasn't effected it either as XP says it still needs to be installed. Any suggestions on how to get the update recognised so it will quit calling for the same update???

Just been googling this... any truth that MS are pushing IE8 as an auto update, and that's what this is. It's just under 16mb in size. Good job don't have windows set to auto install if it is.

What is this "messenger service" that wants me to go to www.regfit.com. It started coming up when I updated to xp pro over my xp home.
It says I have 55 critical errors on my system, but I had just done a complete restore from the "HP restore to original condition" and lose all files. You know, when you use the HP recover system. This message only came up after I installed xp pro and setup the internet access.

Any way to stop it from popping up?
 

Answer:All this started when I installed xp pro update

After creators update installed I have gotten pages Windows services running. My machine is running at about 50% CPU. At idle it's usually around 15 to 2%. I've never seen so many services running at 1 time sine Win NT!!

See Screen captures 1 & 2

Answer:Win 10 after creators update installed

A change was made in Creators Update regarding how services were run. Previously each instance svchost.exe could be hosting multiple services. From 1703 on each service is hosted separately. It looks at first glance that a lot more services are running, but actually it's about the same number - it's just that you can see them all now.






In Windows 10 v1703 systems with more than 3.5 GB of RAM, each service would get its own service host (svchost.exe), instead of running under a shared service process....
...from Windows 2000 to up until Windows 10 v1607, each svchost.exe process used to host a set of services ? a model originally designed to reduce resource usage by services.

That's because svchost.exe only started hosting multiple services from Win2000 on.

This is a Dell running Win 7 Pro 64. I recently switched out the 500 GB hard drive for a 1 TB drive. Everything seemed to work fine, but I discovered today that Windows Update won't run. Although the service is running, I get the error msg, "unable to check for updates because the service is not running."

I ran sfc /scannow and it found corrupted system files it couldn't repair. The log is attached.
Any ideas what I might do now?

I already tried this: 1) Stop update service, 2) delete all the files in C:\Windows\Software Distribution, 3) restarted the Update service. Still get the same error message.
I wanted to do a repair-install, but this is a Dell system with OEM software, so I can't to a repair-install from the Dell installation disk. I'd really like to avoid a clean install. I'm guessing the new hard drive is somehow at the bottom of this.

EDIT: I downloaded the System Update Readiness Tool. When I tried to install it, I got the attached error message1 [Sorry, I can't figure out how to make manage the attachments. I got two different error messages when trying to install the SURT. Both are attached.]
EDIT2: I downloaded the SURT again, just in case. This time when I tried to install, I got this error message:

Answer:Windows Update won't run after new HDD installed

Where did the install disc come from ?

Did you make it ?

Is it retail ?

Is it OEM ?

Is windows activated with the key from the COA ?

How was windows installed to the new drive ?

Trying to install xp home edition, erro says bios is not acip complant need bios update, the problem is there is no os installed to go get the update, how can i update the bios without an operating system

Answer:need an bios update without os installed

Download the BIOS file & flash utility, copy them to a bootable floppy, boot off the floppy, perform the flash from DOS. But before doing that, check your BIOS settings to make sure ACPI is enabled. If it's not, enable it.

Minor problems, (or annoyances), after installing.
1 problem remains, I play dominoes on playdrift, after update of creator now all the dominoes flash when they move, very annoying, game plays correctly.
Did update change something causing this, did edge change something.
The flashing at every domino move is annoying.

Vista Home premium SP2, IE9.

Today, 4.5.2011, notification showed an update was available.
I have Windows Update set at Manual.
I was, at the time, in the middle of something. So, I let the update wait. But by the time I was done, the update was install already.
The update was just a Windows Defender KB915597, Def. 1.101.822.0

I checked the update settings... still on Manual.
I ran a Walwarebytes scan.... nothing found.

Any ideas why ?
Thank you.

Answer:Update installed without my consent

Usually Security Essentials and Defender will up date automatically, even though set to manual. I know I have the same situation with Security Essentials.
They are being updated via defender and not automatic update.

2 of my machines have automatically downloaded/upgraded using the recent Win 8.1 Upgrade 1, but one machine is still running the pre upgrade 8.1. I've attempted to explicitly install the upgrade via

Settings|Change PC Settings|Update & Recovery|Windows Update,

but none of the expected updates show up: KB 2919355, KB 2919442. I've searched my update history and neither of these has been installed. So, what's up? Is there another prerequisite update I need before the actual 8.1 update will show up in my list of available updates?

Answer:Win 8.1 Update (1) Not Installed on 1 computer (out of 3)

Hi

I tried to install a stand alone download of Windows 8.1 Update but I get a message that it is installed,

I'm do not see how it could be installed, this install of my OS is only 1 day old and I have only downloaded and installed the 8.1 SP this morning.

When I look in Installed update the KB2919355 is shown as being installed but the date is the 19th March,
which was before it was released, I believe.

How can I be sure I have the update installed?

Thanks

Daniel

Answer:Is Windows 8.1 Update installed

Another way to verify is to see if you have the new Power button on your Start screen like in step 2 Option One below.
