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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When trying to use Windows Update, the updates download successfully but fail to install. The following message appears: "Problem: A problem on your computer is preventing updates from being downloaded or installed." I have turned my antivirus software off, I have tried updating manually, I have tried updating one at a time. Nothing seems to work. I now have a backlog of 13 updates that I'm supposed to install. Can anyone please help? THANKS!

Answer:Windows Update: "problem on your computer is preventing updates from being installed"

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

When I launch WU form the std start menu shortcut, it launches wuapp.exe and just hangs. I have to terminate the process in task manager. Additional launches = additional hung processes.

Shortcut target: %windir%\system32\wuapp.exe startmenu
Starts in: %windir%\system32\

The same condition occurs if I try to launch wuapp.exe directly from %windir%\system32\
Yesterday, I checked the Effective permissions for my user on wuapp.exe = full control
Today, after running the Windows WU Troubleshooter and WU MS Fixit, the permissions = read, read & execute.

The issue is twofold. The standard WU shortcut "hangs" but Control Panel WU does not hang, until I try to view installed updates (viewing history seems to be ok). I have to terminate the process in Task Manager once I try to view installed updates.

As a workaround, I created a shortcut to Control Panel WU - this allows me to check for and apply updates.

Shortcut target: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Update


A few things that might have caused this - recent activity, but just guessing I installed Advanced Uninstaller Pro and played with it, but did not apply anything it suggested. One thing I tried was duplicate files - eventually killing it due to time (lots of dups, lots of files).

Answer:Windows update "hang" - menu shortcut & installed updates

I'm not sure that resetting WU would actually cure your problem - it sounds to me more of a systemic problem, possibly to do with one of the involved technologies (scripting, NET, etc.).

My wuapp.exe has TrustedInstaller as owner, with only Read and Execute permissions for users and Admins.

Hi,
Get-MsrcSecurityUpdate does not seem to list some "security only" updates in the xml output.
It does list all the other updates including Monthly rollups. Is there a way to retrieve this?
For example, the following updates are missing from the output when the command

This update won't install and I had trouble once before...a long time ago... installing this update. I went to Google for a fix and on some forum a tech told me to un-install the ver. 2.0 that I have on there now...reboot...and then d/l the new update. I didn't bookmark the forum unfortuneately. Now, my system won't even allow me to un-install the old ver. 2.0 so I'm at a loss as to what to do. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

Why is Microsoft Security Essentials Definition Update being listed as "Optional" under the Automatic Windows Update?
You actually have to choose it to be downloaded (since it is listed as optional), instead of MSE/Windows automatically downloading the definition.
If you do not manually select it to be downloaded, Windows will not automatically download the MSE definition. 
Isn't it odd that a security definition update for MSE be listed as "Optional" in terms of "importance?" This happens in both Windows 7 and Windows Vista OS.
 
Any reasons or answers?

Answer:Microsoft Security Essentials Definition Update being listed as "Optional" under Importance?

"They are marked optional in Windows Update because if they are ignored MSE will install the definitions at its regular daily update check." (official answer from

http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/msestart/thread/b5594cea-93b4-4320-8cbb-edc59a0948cc)
Even if many people set their Windows Update (incl. MS Update) settings to "check for updates and notify..." instead of "install updates automatically", I would strongly recommend the automatic setting. It's safer when MSE checks and updates the virus
signatures every time you start the computer (before you can do anything in Windows) than when it updates according to its own daily schedule. The difference is not huge but existent."192 GB ought to be enough for anybody." (from the miniseries "Next Generation's Jokes")

Okay, here goes.

I'm working on a laptop (XPpro) that won't install the available windows updates. It downloads them and then tries to install each one and fails. I then get a list of the updates that were not installed with the ever helpful message "updates were unable to be successfully installed". I pulled the error 0x8024200e out of the windowsupdate.log file.

I have

1) tried tgal's advice in post #10 from http://forums.techguy.org/t351188&highlight=updates+unable+successfully+installed.html

2) tried justfoo's advice in post #13 from http://forums.techguy.org/t328556&highlight=updates+unable+successfully+installed.html

3) tried renaming the "Software Distribution" folder in the WINNT directory to "Software Distribution Old" and attempting update again.

None of these have solved the issue.

Any help would be welcome.

Hello All,

I was referred here by NeonFx from the TechGuy Security forum. He had me run a slew of anti-virus/anti-spyware diagnostics. According to NeonFx my system is currently infection free and he states the problem lies elsewhere.

He also had me run the Windows Update FixIt tool in both Default and Aggressive mode - both of which did not fix the problem. So what is the problem??

PROBLEM:

When I run the install Windows updates, the updates do not install, and I receive the following message (not verbatim, but close):

"Some updates were unable to be installed..."

This problem "came out of no where" and there has been no suspicious activity prior to it starting other than an IE7 redirect rootkit that NeonFx helped me remove (if I recall correctly an infection of agp440)...

Stumped, stumped and stumped...

Hello all.

I have a Windows XP machine that keeps telling me that I need to install 2 security updates.

KB956572 and KB981852. The problem is that these updates are already installed and appear in my Add/Remove Programs. So I go ahead and install the updates again anyway. The machine says the updates installed successfully. However after a system reboot, the same 2 updates pop up again saying that they need to be installed.

I have removed/uninstalled the updates in question. Re-installed them. No success. They still come up as needing to be installed. I have tried re-registering the windows updates components and have cleared the temporary folders of windows update but still the same result.

Does anyone have any tips or ideas? Thanks.

Hi --

I just migrated to a new hard drive and did a clean install of Win7 (did not have SP1 on the DVD).

During the Updating process, windows stopped working and I received an error, something about running Update again, etc. So I rebooted and finished the Upgrading process...no further problems noted.

However, I view the "Installed Updates" and see that KB2604114 and about 20 other updates "FAILED." But when I view the "Update History," it lists KB2604114 and the others as "installed."

I'm confused. Are the updates I'm referring to "FAILED" or are they properly installed?

Thanks!

Answer:Win7 - "View Update History" vs. "Installed Update"

In your description, you might have switched the observations.

"History" is a log that tracks attempts at installing specific updates. One user might have multiple failed attempts for a particular update; or multiple successful attempts if one was looking for a source of a problem.

"Installed updates" records the last successful installation of a specific update; no timestamp, just the date.

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

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

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

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

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

Answer:Microsoft Security Essentials updates blocking other windows updates

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

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

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

We use a third-party Microsoft patch management system, unfortunately we have to approve all patches manually. It has become a monotonous task to jump on the security bulletin and manually "take-note" of all of the updates released (KB numbers)
to mitigate that vulnerability. After I take note of all of them, I have to jump on the "third-party Microsoft patch management system" and approve every patch (KB #) associated with that Bulletin. 
I am wondering if there is an easier way to get a list of all of the new Microsoft patches released just for a specific Microsoft Security Bulletin. My current method is just sifting through the Bulletin and copying/pasting every KB number I find that is
designed to patch the vulnerability.
I would assume there is somewhere I can go or a tool I can utilize which would allow me to get the list of all of the KB numbers that need to be approved.
Or Am I out of luck (And just have to sift through the Bulletin to collect the associated KBs)?

I appreciate any and all suggestions/advice/ridicule.

Ok heres the deal.
I crashed my system and have done a clean install. I couldn't find my winxp pro disk so I barrowed my friends. His has SP2 on it. I then found out after installing it, that it wouldn't work with my product key. So i had to go searching for my disk. Thankfully I found it, and did a windows repair to reinstall the system with the new disk.
My disk didn't have SP2 on it.

So I go to windows update to do updates and it trys to install like 80 something updates and everytime it comes back with ": A problem on your computer is preventing updates from being downloaded or installed "

I have a feeling that it thinks SP2 is on my system. is there a way to resolve this without having to do another clean install?

Answer:"A problem on your computer is preventing updates from being downloaded or installed"

Hello and Welcome to TSF


Why wouldn't it work with your product key?
It is better to install with SP2 incorporated onto the cd, saves a lot of time. SP2 should have been eliminated while performing the repair install.

You could try the following but you need SP2 installed before installing the updates, the site should have recognized it was not installed. If the following does not help then I suggest you Slipstream Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Create Bootable CD and do a clean install using the proper software


Try re-registering the windows update components. This may help fix a corrupt installer


1. Click on Start and Run,
2. Type "REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.

I just noticed this today. I have something called "Program Updates" on my Programs menu and in my Control Panel. Running Win XP SP2. Here are two screen prints:
and, from Control Panel:

I don't know for sure how it got installed on my system. On 9/23/07, I installed software from Walmart for downloading music; it's called Wal-Mart Music Downloads Store. As I said, I did not notice the Programs Updates item at that time.

It, i.e. Programs Updates, does not work, either. If I open it from either the Programs menu or Control Panel, makes no difference. Here's what it looks like:
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y256/farmpond/forums/ProgramUpdates3.jpg As you can see, it appears to be an incomplete user interface.

Restore to a Restore Point prior to installing Wal-Mart Music Downloads Store. Take a look and see whether Programs Updates is gone. If not, try CCleaner. If gone, run CCleaner anyway. And, if I reinstall Wal-Mart Music Downloads Store, look closely at my Programs menu and Control Panel to verify this thing has not reappeared.

Hello,

Recently I've been troubleshooting random hangs which one of the solution was to uninstall the following updates if I had any of them installed:
- KB2952664
- KB2990214
- KB3035583
I had KB2952664 and KB2990214 installed on 6th of April 2015 which after creating an restore point I successfully uninstalled them via control panel.

When I checked the installed update, those updates were gone for good. However I've noticed two significant changes after uninstalling:
- KB2952664 has been installed right after the uninstalling process. I'm not sure when it was exactly installed (before or after restart). It's been dated as today (23rd of June 2015) which it shows up on the installed updates
- When I checked the "Windows update" tab it says I've never checked for any updates nor installed one. The update history and hidden updates has been wiped out as well.

For the second point, I was able to check for updates which brought back all the hidden updates (I kept running the scans until there were no updates found).

As for the first point I don't know what caused to install KB2952664 again automatically. I've tried uninstalling this freshly installed update however it's still there listed on the installed updates. I'm not sure how to check if the uninstalling has been successful or not but the process was smooth (no endless waits or errors popped during the process) as well as two restore point has been created: one for the initial removal (dated 6th of April...

Try using the following command in an Elevated Command Prompt:

reboot once it's finished, then do a Check for Updates, and hide the KB when it's found again.

I am using Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit. I want to remove IE 11 but when I go to look at Installed updates, only 47 items show. There are updates for MS Office, Adobe, etc., but no Windows updates. I have another laptop with the same OS and I can see the updates on it. Is there some option in Windows update I need to set?

Removal of IE11 is not the real problem here, it's the absence of the windows components. This is a new laptop.

Answer:Windows components do not appear in "view installed updates"

If the machine came with IE11 pre-installed, then it almost certainly cannot be removed.
You'd have to reformat and reinstall using retail media - assuming that your machine actually has a proper Windows 7 COA sticker, and isn't simply a downgrade from Windows 8 Pro.

Hello guys,

I don't know what I did, but nothing happens when I click on those two things in the search bar:

View image: wtf

I reinstalled Windows a few hours ago, and IIRC pressing those with the mouse lead somewhere. Now when I click on them, it does nothing. I have to type in "Settings", so I can click on the actual Windows App. Then I can navigate to those settings. IIRC those results were "clickable".

Can somebody help?

Thanks in advance!

The message "Working on updates 12%" has been hanging on the screen for the last 12 hours on my desktop pc.

I had the same problem, though at a different point in the update process, with my laptop.

I had to abandon the update on my laptop and reinstall.

Do I have to go through all that a gain with my Desktop?

I'm very frustrated and thinking of reverting to Windows 7.

Does anyone have some suggestions to correct the stalled update procedure.

Many thanks

Hello all,

I am having this little problem where I install updates via Windows Update and all the downloads are downloaded and installed fine, but when I go to Add/Remove programs and go to the "View Installed Updates" section to uninstall an update, it's all blank.
 

Answer:Windows 7 Pro "installed updates" blank

I have downloaded probably 4 or 5 different updates since I finished installing the Win 7 Pro x64 pack from MSNDAA and when I go to the Add/Remove Programs -> View Installed Updates I only have one present. Might be only showing significant updates and not small patches.

Hello,

I'm a n00b hoping for some help...

I keep getting the system message that says "Your computer has not been restarted since you last installed updates. Click here to complete installation."

So I click restart and, when my PC reboots, the same message is there. What's annoying is that the message pops up every 5 minutes. Plus, I can no longer install any updates from the Microsoft website.

Anyone know what to do?

Thanks!

I found the solution that worked for me -- restoring OPA11.BAK -- on this forum a few days ago, and the Office programs work fine again without re-installing Office, creating a new user profile, etc. (which worked for others with the same symptom but different underlying problems). The remaining annoyance is that, when I let a "clean-up" utility delete OPA11.BAK, that also disappeared the Start Menu icons for the Office programs and the Office Resource Kit programs. Unlike most programs, these MS programs don't let me manually assign Start Menu icons. Has anyone found a way to restore the icons without un- and re-installing the Office programs and the Office Resource Kit programs?

how to retrieve lost programs after Microsoft updates deleted them lost sony pictures programs and Spanish language software ( both purchased )

Answer:programs lost after microsoft updates installed

You didn't keep backup copies of the installation packages for your purchased software?Very unwise indeed. Maybe only the application shortcuts were deleted, so have a look in the relevant folders in Windows Explorer. See if there is a Sony folder containing the application's executable file, and same for the Spanish Language software (in a different folder of course).

I bought my HP Pavilion laptop in July 2013. It is running Windows 7 Home Edition and seems to be running very well, except for the behavior of Windows Updates. My ?problem? is that I'm not sure whether its behavior really is a problem.

Quite often while it is shutting down, a warning message appears in a very pretty light blue screen. The message reads "Please do not power off or unplug your machine. Installing update 1 of n...". The ?n? may vary from 2 or 3, to 11 or 12.

When I later restart the computer and click on "Start-->All Programs-->Windows Update-->View update history", a Control Panel window opens and displays a long list of installed updates. The ?Status? column for most of them reads ?Successful?. (see attached image #1 "view update history.jpg")

But if I click the Control Panel link to "See also-->Installed Updates", it reports "No updates are installed on this computer." (see attached image #2 "No updates are installed.jpg")

Recently when I clicked on a small popup which said something like "Click here to install updates", the Windows Update pane of the Control Panel opened and displayed the message "Windows could not search for new updates / An error occurred while checking for new updates for your computer. / Error(s) found: / Code 80080005 Windows Update encountered an unknown error."

Can anyone tell me in what folder on the hard drive I will find the Updates that are "already installed".

Clarification: I'm not asking about the ones that have been downloaded and are not yet installed (i.e. Windows/Software distribution). Also, I am aware that I can "view installed updates" via the control panel.

But I'm looking for the folder where the installed updates actually reside.

I got a crazy alert! virus! blah blah and the damned computer was screaming at me. I tried to close it down, but I was on the phone and didn't have time to fool with it so I hit the power button. When rebooting I hit f6 to boot to safe mode. Interestingly it stated, "installing updates." After a while it rebooted itself. I then get the little message box "updates installed successfully" or some such. So I go to View the update history and the last update it shows occurred on 8/10. Today is 8/12. I then got a couple of additional pop up messages stating "Updates installed" yet there is no new entry for update history.

Or maybe it is "Required updates need to be downloaded". I don't remember. In any case thee is only one option given: download or install. When this message appears the whole display is locked. Sometimes Esc removes the popup; sometimes Esc (and everything else) is ignored. If Esc is ignored, the only option is to force power down. The message doesn't even indicate that this is Windows talking about a fix from Microsoft. It really looks like malware so I never let it proceed. If it is a valid Windows fix it will show up in the Update Status display after I reboot. I understand that Windows really wants me to install a fix when this happens, but why does Esc sometimes work and sometimes not? And what prompts this popup for some fixes and not for others?

Answer:Nag: "Required updates need to be installed"

Have you implemented any form of Windows update block?

Or perhaps (as you're uncertain about the message) the update has been downloaded but has not been installed because it requires a restart and it's during your active hours period?

Note the exact message as the two cases are quite different and search for literally that message.

Another question/puzzle. Windows 8.1 Enterprise.

I clean installed W8.1 three days ago, and the first thing I did was bring it up to date with all the offered updates. All installed successfully and I thought no more of it. At some point after this I made a system image backup, which today I have restored to. When I now look at the "classic" windows update screen it says I have never checked for updates and none are installed. Forcing a check for updates brings only two up as can be seen in the pictures. If I go to "view installed updates" then there is a lot of stuff in there, whih I assume could be the previously installed original batch.
I'm guessing this is normal behaviour but it seems slightly odd (the on screen messages at least)

Answer:No update history says "never checked" & "never installed"

Not odd... Considering that is a "clean install"(albeit with integrated updates) - thus no update history (file) exists.

I have a Compaq presario v5000 (notebook) with Win XP. Norton Antivirus 2009, which was running an update. Not sure what stage it had reached.
It had just installed about 5 or 6 security and other automatic updates. I had not restarted the machine to complete the installation as I was working on something.

I was working on Serif software Drawplus X2 and writing an email using Gmail through my firefox Browser latest edition, sorry don't know the details as I can't restart the machine.

Just noticed that on the front edge of the notebook there is a flashing orange zigzag icon when I press the start button.
I was just about to attach a file when the machine went into hibernation mode.
I have tried to restart the machine but nothing at all happens.
It is plugged into the mains so I know it is not a battery failure, at least I don't think so as I think the machine would have shut down not hibernated.

I am working on my MacbookPro to do this.
I work wirelessly through an Airport Express, although I don't think it is relevant.

I am sorry if there is more information you need but as I rarely use the notebook I am not too familiar with it all.

Thanks for any help you can give.
Best regards
Applelady

you can try ...

Press and hold the start button for at least 5 seconds ... will shutdown any PC

Press CRTL-Alt-Del ... a few times?

Turn off the mains power, pull the battery, put the kettle on, plug the mains back in but not the battery, and or the other way round.

If anyone has any more ideas, I'm open ...



oh, if you do get it back, BIN Norton, go for something that actually works, costs less, uses a hell of a lot less resources/memory, AND stops nasties ... and I ain't suggesting a freebie.

problem.

I have been working on a new pc today that I needed to create an image for and noticed it isn't having the issue yet. However, a computer I recently imaged (Tuesday) is already having the problem.


I did gpupdate /force on the new pc without the issue, and it still is working fine. I'm starting to wonder if it may be a side effect of using sysprep on the machine before putting it into service. Once I'm done with this new pc image I will sysprep it
and watch for any changes.

Please follow the instructions in the below link and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.


READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide


If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going.

Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not.
Notes:



If you run into problems trying to run theREAD & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode. You can running steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools on another PC and burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.

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



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

Today is Microsoft Tuesday --- the SECOND Tuesday of the month --- on which Microsoft is expected to release its monthly cycle of Windows security updates.   Based on previous history, they should become available at 1 P.M. [USA - Eastern Daylight Saving Time]
Starting today, there is a new procedure:   Windows Update for consumer PCs will offer a [single] security monthly quality update (also known as the "monthly rollup") that will contain all new security fixes for a month... plus fixes from all previous monthly rollups.
A rollup is simply multiple patches rolled together into a single update. These rollups will replace individual patches . Each monthly rollup will supersede the previous month's rollup. The ultimate goal is for these monthly rollups to become fully cumulative, which will happen as the team adds patches released in the past, so users need only to install the latest single rollup.

I am trying to get Office updates on Windows 7 HP, but when I click on the "Find out more" link to activate Microsoft update nothing happens - it behaves as it were a dead link.

I'm wondering if this may be because IE isn't installed as I have a European version that shipped without it and I use Firefox as my browser.

Windows updates works fine. A vista box I have worked OK too - I recall it opened the update website which made me think the abscence of IE was the issue.

Browsing to the update site manually just tells me that access is through the control panel now.

I'd rather not install IE unless I have to to make this work.

Any ideas?

Answer:Cannot get access to "Updates for other microsoft products"

You might need the IE tab extension.

Does anyone know if there is a way to download the security patches to your hard drive or other medium, so that you can install them on a separate computer? I'm putting together a new computer, and when I hooked into the Internet, I was bombarded with viruses before I could update my anti-virus software and attempt to download the MS XP patches. In reading a little about the viruses, it seems crucial to have the security patches in place BEFORE trying to get rid of them. I don't have my notes in front of me, but I remember the names "KORGO.V and MSBLAST.A as being the more prominent culprits. I did a system restore to backup to a time before I hooked up to the Internet, and I'm trying to figure out how to install the updates and patches before being overrun with viruses. I've never had this problem in the past, with several computers I've put together for Internet usage, so this has me all puzzled up.

A while back, Microsoft offered a free disk with IE6 and some updates, which I obtained, but that didn't contain enough recent patches to help me.

While this probably won't solve all my issues, if I could simply download the updates and patches onto a CD or ZIP, then install them into the new computer, I could plug some of the holes in XP, while I bailed virtual water and updated my anti-virus program before I "sank."

Answer:Are Microsoft Security Updates Really Necessary?

Hi Huck,
In my humble opinion yes.
Most people became infected in 3 ways.
They open a message attachment
Download what they think is a safe program
or visit an infected site.

Either way the code is injected into your comp, partially due to the lack of dilligence of the user,
me included i was multi-tasking at the time. but in my defence it was none of the above

Now there looking for other ways that are not so user reliant, ie OS orientated and the patches that MS are issuing are to stop these.

Why do you think there are so many AV and AM companies are out there.

Welcome to TSG....

If your car has to be upgraded by the manufacturer of the car you get them, well it is the same thing from Microsoft they are the owners of the operating system and they say that the upgrades should be downloaded.

Enough of what Microsoft wants since it is your computer but still Microsoft's OS I really think that yes you should install al of the updates including service pack 2 these will help keep your system secure and also protect against infections, make the internet connection more dependable and a lot of other things. Ir-regardless of what others say these updates are a necessary thing and really should be done.

I need help getting my printer to work with a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I had to re-install due to a CMOS error which I think was due to a dead battery. It still could be something else seeing as I have had other problems with this install (explained below). Anyway, the printer is an old Brother MFC 8300 (it has been a workhorse!). Previous times I have re-installed Windows there haven't been any problems with this printer. I simply install the driver from Windows Update (the driver is named "Brother MFC8600/9650 Series" in the device manager). But this time the "Windows Update" installed the driver and says everything is working properly but when I go to "Devices and Printers" it doesn't show up under "Printers and Faxes". There is a listing for "USB Composite Device" under "Devices" that shows "Brother MFC8600/9650 Series" as a scanner. Not sure what that means.

I also tried to manually download the driver from "catalog.update.microsoft.com". I downloaded 2 different versions of the driver. One has a file size of 2.0 MB and the other has a files size of 2.3 MB. I ended up not installing either because I didn't know where the proper destination location was using the "Expand" command from the "Command Prompt" with "expand <CAB FILE NAME> -F:* <DESTINATION>".

That means your unit is a MultiFunction device and include Printer, Fax, Copier and Scanner. Sometimes the scanner part will be picked up as a separate device because Win7 has a built-in function for scanning.

Good Evening All,

I having a problem with my Dell Latitude D610.

I went to update the BIOS and it said that the battery is not installed despite the laptop running solely off of battery power!

I have ran the dell device diagnostic and device manager and no issue appears to be with the battery. When you check the battery info in the BIOS settings it says the batteries are not installed and also when you log into XP it constantly says running off of AC power even when its not plugged in!

Any one got any ideas what could be causing this and how it can be solved?

Thanks Nick
 

Answer:Dell Latitude "battery not installed" preventing BIOS update

It may be referring to the CMOS battery which is wired to the computer beneath the keyboard. The battery can be replaced for $8.95 to $29.95 depending on where you purchase...

But regardless, you do have a problem that must be resolved. The D610 has been one strange little irrelevant problem after another... but you cannot afford to irritate it and have that mysterious unremovable password appear as it has on so many D610 and D620 Dells.

Hey guys,
I've come across this annoying problem where, Windows Update can't update certain features/drivers. In this case it would be my mouse pad driver and integrated gfx driver... All I get is a notification saying it can't update. On the Windows Update window, this is what I get:
Once I click "Instalar Agora" (Install now), no second window appears, as you would expect from a third party update.
Any suggestions? This is really becoming highly annoying.

Answer:Updates can't be installed - Windows Update

Have you restarted the machine yet? Sometimes that fixes update issues. Also are you sure you're actually receiving an error... Driver updates in Windows 10 are delivered via WSUS as well now so you won't see anything other than the standard windows update procedure.

While looking into recently installed Windows Updates I noticed something strange.

This month there were five Important Office 2007 updates offered to me. I installed them and it shows this in Update History. But when I look in Installed Updates (where I would need to uninstall from) it lists 20 something updates from that same date.

How is this possible? Are there other updates within the main update? I've never spent a lot of time looking at Installed Updates but it seems this may occur for other updates as well.

Answer:Update History vs. Installed Updates

They often do not match. Mine don't.

"View Update History" often only shows more recent updates.

The one marked "Installed Updates" shows the entire list and allows for uninstalling them if necessary.

Nothing to worry about.

Hi guys,

I have been trying to install Win7 SP1 on my Lenovo SL410 laptop for the last couple of weeks now without success. The laptop would reboot and indicate configuring service pack, run till about 7-8% and restart after trying for a while. I have tried the steps stated on

without much success. I have also downloaded the stand-alone and faced the same symptom. This is a fresh factory restore and I have not used any regcleaners on this laptop.

Some of the error codes encountered were 800705B4, 800F0826 with the latest being 80200001. This is what my update history looks like (as attached). Though it indicates that SP1 has been successfully installed, it is not listed under installed updates.

I ran CheckSUR and no errors were found in the log.

I ran SFC and no integrity violations were found.

Are you talking about the new small Service Pack 1 update ?

Your windows already shows Service Pack 1 in system properties doesn`t it ?

I have Windows XP Pro with only service pack 1 installed. And I use Panda anti-virus Pro 2010. I don't really believe in turning on Windows update for automatic updates. The service pack might contain programs that could cause other problems. In the past, I downoaded service pack security updates. But my PC is old and underpowered with dial-up connection. So it takes too long.

I went to use the public library computers to cherry pick just the security patches/updates I need for Windows vulnerabilities, since library has more powerful PC's with faster Internet connections. Then I planned to download these to a CD or mini USB drive to take home. But the webiste says to just turn on automatic updates on PC

My Panda AV application has disinfected well over 200 adware programs in just a matter of days. It makes me wonder if a suspicious file or virus might eventually get through. This is why I am inquiring about security patches/updates.

Is there a website that I can just download the security updates I need without loading the entire service pack?

Since I have a full-featured anti-virus/firewall application that is very effective, should I just forget about service packs and security updates altogether?

I tried to post this question on the security forum. But it wouldn't let me post a new topic.

Answer:Are service packs/security updates needed when good AV software installed?

It is advised to keep every application fully updated.. Most updates are for security loop holes that are found.Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) is an important, free update for the Windows XP operating system. SP2 includes all security and critical updates that were previously released and provides better protection against viruses, worms, and other unwanted software.http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/s...installsp2.mspxFrom that link I belive you would want to note How to Use Automatic UpdatesYou should also update any Java, Adobe,Media player applications from their web sites.

Windows crashes on startup -- a freeze in the "Starting Windows" screen. The Event Viewer shows this recurring error:

Administrative Event Viewer Error - Session "Microsoft Security Essentials OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D

Searches give me this thread as the only one with something that might be a solution; however, the solution in that thread seems to be temporary, and the folder and file specified don't exist in my current install of Windows 7 and MSE.

Recommendations?

Answer:"Microsoft Security Essentials OOBE" stopped (...) error 0xC000000D

Hello PantsMasterson

Is this of any help to you - MSE OOBE Event Error - Fixed

I just joined this forum today, I found it while searching for help to fix the following error as displayed in the Event Log:

When I boot up I do get my desktop, but the mouse is frozen.
I turn the power off, and back on and my system is functional.

However, I get the following error messages in the event log each time:
1. Session "Microsoft Security Client OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D
2. The previous system shutdown at 6:07:45 AM on ‎1/‎26/‎2013 was unexpected.
3. The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
4. Session "Microsoft Security Client OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D
5. Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0

This has been going on for a while now. In an attempt to fix, using suggestions I found by Googling:
1. I have uninstalled Security Essentials, run a registry cleanup, re-started my system and reinstalled Security Essentials;
2. Removed the EppOobe.etl file and rebooted.
Neither of these worked.

Attached is a zip file created by running the SF_Diagnostic_Tool.exe. Prior to creating this file I followed the instructions from this page Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD in order to be able to create a complete dump file.
I have also entered as much information as possible about my system configuration into my profile.

Answer:"Microsoft Security Client OOBE" stopped due to error: 0xC000000D

After I formatted my machine I constantly had this problem and error. For a while removing the EppOobe.etl file prior to shutdown and/or rebooting was the only fix. This morning my system BSOD'd mid-game due to this bloody file/program. Not to mention MSE has been the sole cause of every issue with my machine. I've since un-installed it and installed another virus scanner all together. So far so good!

Sorry I don't have a fix for you. But I suggest downloading something else entirely.

Hi All.

I recently moved from Avast to MSE and I was wondering if there was a way to shift the Scan with MSE context menu item to the Shift+Right Click menu instead. I did a little googling and tried the "extended" registry key but that didn't seem to work (unless I put it in the wrong place).

Thank you in advance for your help!

Answer:Move "Scan with Microsoft Security Essentials" to Shift+Right Click

Welcome to Seven Forums BaconCatBug. You should be able to add items to the extended menu, but I don't know if it will also reside in the standard menu.

How to Add Any Application Shortcut to Windows Explorer?s Context Menu

You might also see if the entry is listed via Shell Menu View. If so, the program also has an extended view (File> Set extended view) you can use to add it there.
