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.)

I will be getting Verizon FiOS internet soon, and I am debating on which plan to go with:
Tier 1 = up to 15mbps down/5 mbps up for 54.99 a month.
Tier 2 = up to 25mbps down/25mbps up for 69.99 a month.

The only concern I have is online gaming pings through Steam. Will I notice a difference between the two speeds? I don't mind waiting extra time to download stuff, but I'll get tier 2 if I will have lower pings in online gaming. Thanks for any advice!
 

Answer:Difference in online gaming experience between FiOS Tier 1/Tier 2?

It will not make a difference and it will be the same connection, they just limit your upload/download with the different package.

Hi

What Windows version and service pack are you using?

.Net updates are frequent at times and yours seems an old version so uninstall all .Net versions using this tool HERE, then install .Net 4.0 from HERE (.Net 4.0 is the latest version)

Hi folks,
I recently updated my Lumia 1520 to update 2 via windows insider trick. Now I pretty much want to receive normal updates that are pushed to my device in the future and not windows 10 TP and all. So can u guys suggest me what to do in order to receive normal updates? Currently the update setting shows windows 10 update ready to download... Is there any trick that can help me?
Thank you.

Answer:Some help regarding wp 8.1 update 2 (via windows insider app)

I believe you will have to hard reset the device since you aren't supposed to stay on Update 2. It was supposed to stay there for a little bit, then upgrade to 10 automatically. Erase the device to "forget" that whole plan.
However, there may or may not be a less destructive solution since while I know when the device is asking to install it's too late, but I don't know about asking to download.

Hello!
I am enrolled in the slow ring of the windows insider preview. I have a Lumia 640 . The internal storage available in it is 7.28 gb. To update, it requires 1.22 gb. I have removed all apps and documents I could have removed. Now only system does and the (uninstallable) Microsoft apps are left. How do i get the else required to update?
PS: The mail+ messaging shows it is using 103mb space. Can that be removed?

I updated my lumia 640 by windows insider...is there any problem?
Plz help me

Answer:Windows insider vs update advisor

Update adviser is to let you know whether or not your phone is compatible and for when MS/Carrier have the official WM10 update ready for your phone. Windows Insider is so you can preview pre release builds of WM10 on your device. Which ring did you choose? I updated my wife's 640 to the insider release preview ring for the .242 update(which will be more stable than the slow or fast rings) then removed her from the insider program so she'll get the next production release. I hope this makes sense, let me know if you need me to clarify anything.

Hi everyone,
Before heading off for the holidays I wanted to give a little bit of an update on how things are shaping up for Windows 10, especially since we don?t have a build for you this month. I know that some of you are disappointed that we didn?t release another build (though we know some of them escaped?.I?m looking at you 9888 & 9901?)* but now that we?ve announced our event on January 21st I can finally explain why we didn?t. We?ve been very hard at work putting together a great build for you that includes a bunch of new features and improvements. As all of those payloads came in we needed to stabilize code, fix any integration issues, and ensure all of the new UX is polished. We?re really focused on making the next build something that we hope you?ll think is awesome. In fact, just so that we have a *daily* reminder to ourselves that we want this build to be great, we even named our build branch FBL_AWESOME. Yeah, it?s a bit corny, but trust me that every Dev that checks in their code and sees that branch name gets an immediate reminder of our goal. We?re super excited to show you what we?ve been up to! Look for a follow-up blog post from us on where to tune-in to the live webcast on January 21st.

You'll wait a few months for a device from MS with similar specs. However, there have been several new models released that run W10M. If you're not particular about getting a microsoft branded phone, you could purchase one assuming it is available in your region
You could also test with insider after buying 640xl. But you'll have to do upgrade process carefully. Check the forums for guidelines

I like many others have been having a problem getting my Windows Update set up to get insider builds. Even though I had signed in using my Microsoft account, I get getting the "Fix me" button which gave me a message about stopping insider builds. I think I identified the problem. I did a clean install of 10162 on a spare drive as a stand alone system. Update told me I was all set to get insider builds. Then I reattached my drive with Windows 8.1 and set it up for dual boot. As soon as I did this I got the infamous "Fix me" button. I then disconnected the Windows 8.1 drive and update told me I was once again all set to get insider builds. Strange - when Update sees another windows install on my system, it disables insider builds.

Answer:Problem with getting Insider Builds thru Windows Update

Yup that is unfortunately what happens if you dual boot with another version of Windows.
I get exactly the same scenario dual booting Windows 10 and 7.
If I want to update Win 10 I have to disconnect my Win 7 drive then all goes well until I reconnect my Win 7 drive and boot up, then follows a sequence of CHKDSK.

Hello, I've been trying for hours to get my HTC One M8 to run the Windows 10 preview, but I'm having some issues.
- As most people have suggested, I've hard reset my phone, not used a backup, then installed the insider preview and signed up for fast ring (I hear the newest build is great).
- Once I've done this and the phone has restarted and everything, I go to check for updates and.... nothing. Says my device is up to date.
- Tried resetting (twice), using the WP recovery tool, and still no updates come around.
Any suggestions? Could this have anything to do with my carrier (Verizon)? Am I out of luck? Thanks in advance.

I have an HTC One M8 running 10586.218 that my son is using (left IOS and likes W10M) and it runs very good on that phone.
You will not get an upgrade using the fast ring on the HTC, that is just for "supported" devices. You can get the very good 10586.218 release using "Insider Release" not "slow" or "fast" though. Not sure if "production" ring will get you anything either.

Here is a detailed account of the problem:
Earlier today, I ran Windows Update and told it to install 15 important updates. It said it was downloading them, but stalled for 30 minutes at 0% done.
I rebooted my computer and re-ran Windows Update. It reported that there were no pending important updates. I clicked "View update history" and saw that the most recent 15 important updates had failed. I clicked "Check for Updates" and,

Hello all,

Real quick, I'm having an issue where I try to update from Build 15031.rs2_release.170204-1546 to the next rs2_release available via Windows Update. The update downloads, does the pre-install, boots me into the traditional blue screen of updating, finishes, then reboots me to get back into the OS. At this juncture, I am at a blue flag and white dot circle, which has stopped spinning (it spins for approx .75 seconds) and halts, machine stays in this state ad infinitum. I can reboot it, at which point it goes back to the same state. If i shut down, then power back up instead (cold boot), the machine reverts the upgrade and goes back to the previous build and everything is honkey dorey.

Thing 1) I do not have a wireless USB mouse/dongle. Please don't recommend I remove it as one does not exist.
Thing 2) I have removed two possible culprits (Creative SoundBlaster Z card, Asus Wireless-N card). No change.
Thing 3) I have unplugged all video (except 1 Display Port), all USB connections, and the Ethernet cable. No change.
Thing 4) I even went so far as to disconnect my NZXT water cooler USB connector from the motherboard header and reboot. No change.

Most posts I see, it's a "Oh, your wireless usb mouse is causing issues" or, "the PC is having issues discovering USB devices during it's boot process, disconnect them".

Whilst attempting to update from build 16176 to 16179 it fails with error Windows 10 Insider Preview 16179.1000 (rs_prerelease) - Error 0x80070005

Finds this update and downloads a KB then starts to install 16179 but quickly stops with this error. I've tried stopping all non MS services and startup programs and rebooting but it still fails. I've also followed numerous different suggestions which got extremely complicated but had no effect.

DISM restorehealth can't find the files and I don't have an ESD/ISO for build 16176

I tried to reset my windows but it only offers a total reinstall losing my software and settings which will be a PIA to rebuild.

I could wait for the next insider release and see if MS have fixed it or is it a problem on my particular PC?

Answer:Update to Windows 10 Insider Preview 16179.1000 - Error 0x80070005

As Build 16299 is the Fall Creators Update that is scheduled to come out this month, it is unknown whether the removal of Windows Media Player is intentional as part of this large update or a bug.

The only way Insiders realized that Windows Media Player was removed was when they tried to use it to play a video. It was then discovered that Windows Media Player was silently removed after installing the October 3rd 2017 KB4046355 update.

Hello everyone,
I've already upgraded to Windows 10 (from W7) around August 18th, and still didn't get the Fall Update.
That was fine, I tried using Media Creation Tool and installing the upgrade manually. After "Copying files" was done, at about 30%, right before starting to install drivers and features, it will stop installing and "restore to previous version of Windows", which is Windows 10.
I decided two days ago to join The Insider program on my laptop too, and after couple hours, I was able to download the latest build of Windows 10.
Again, same problem, it wouldn't install drivers and features, and restores the previous version of Windows.
I read somewhere that turning Wifi OFF might solve it but no solution.
Any suggestions?

Hi,

My cousin brought her Acer Aspire 5349 to me to see if I could help with a Windows Update problem. It seemed there were a couple of old updates that were preventing all future updates from installing and it was caught in an infinite "restart to install updates" loop, but nothing was ever installed. I tried evertyhing I knew to do, nothing worked. So, I rest the machine to factory settings. Twice. Update still will not cooperate. It installed one update for Windows Update itself, but nothing after that. It just sits there "searching for updates" on and on. No error. Just no progress. I downloaded the Update Readiness Tool, and I'm getting the same thing...Windows Update Standalone Installer says "Searching for updates on this computer..." for HOURS. No progress. Wireless connectivity is good. I even tried disabling Windows Security Essentials, still nothing.

I've tried the update troubleshooter. No luck. It gets to "Checking for updates online" and then hangs.

I'd be so very grateful for any suggestions y'all might have. I'm ready to throw it out the window.

Thank you!

Hello everyone. I have a really weird problem on my hands. I guess it all started when I reformatted my computer a few months back, but never really bothered to update through Windows Update because I mainly used my PC for gaming.

After I open my Windows Update and it finishes searching for any update, it will hang/freeze whenever I attempt to install all of my updates. I have about 52 updates (1 GB) ready to be installed so I figured maybe I should try installing fewer programs. Tried installing about 7 MB's worth of updates but same thing happens, it just hangs/freezes and I would be unable to exit the process. (By the way, what would the process be called under task manager?)

I have tried deleting SoftwareDistribution and restarting. I have tried Microsoft's troubleshooting program WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab. And I have tried restarting my computer multiple times. Nothing works.

Really hoping I can get some help here. Many thanks, I greatly appreciate it.

edit: a little update - I tried installing a few of the updates... it hung for a while then it start installing but is stuck at 0%:

not sure what to make of that.

Answer:Windows Update always hangs when attempting to update.

Make sure, that you have those services running, if not try to start them to see, if they fail to start:

COM+ Event System
Cryptographic Services
DHCP Client
Background Intelligent Transfer Service
Network Location Awareness
Network Store Interface Service
Windows Management Instrumentation
Windows Update

In the most cases it is Background Intelligent Transfer Service, which will fail to start.
Windows Update fix will not fix it, because the dependant services are not listed properly.

Answer:W7 Windows Update hangs

Best bet is usually to just let it run it's course, it will finish eventually. There are some common sense things you can do to speed it up. If you are talking about a fresh install of windows and office, do the windows updates first before you enable the setting to update other microsoft products also, as searching for office updates also takes extra time. You can also save time by installing any relevant service packs first. Install IE11 seperatly, so you don't waste time downloading tons of updates for IE8, etc.

Answer:windows 8 update hangs at 12%

If you are trying to boot into Safe Mode you need to know that this isn't possible with Windows 8/8.1 without setting it up to boot into it.  This requires being booted into Windows.  Windows boots so fast that the F8 technique can't work.

Any help would be great, thanks.

Answer:Windows Update Hangs

I would be inclined to try a clean out first.

In IE, Tools/Internet Options/Browsing History, clear Temp Int Files and cookies.

Control Panel/Java, clear the Java cache.

Control Panel/Add-Remove, check you have the latest Java 6 Update 7, and delete all others.

If these don't work, go to My Computer>C:>Windows, and delete the folder 'SoftwareDistribution'. You should now be able to start from scratch with Updates. Make sure you get the Custom ones as well.

Let's know how you get on.

I have Windows 7 Professional & have it set on automatic update download. The last download had 12 updates but the computer got stuck on the 8th update. I had to close it down (shut off manually) & reboot & it came back to the same point & again kept running but would not load the 8th update. After the fourth try my computer finally installed the 8 through 12 updates & all is well now. My question is how do I handle this situation if the computer stays stuck since each time I turn it off & then back on it reboots & returns to the same situation of installing the updates?
 

Answer:Windows 7 update hangs

One of this month's updates seemed to take "forever" to install. How do you distinguish between a stuck update and one that takes way longer than expected?

OS: vista while using "windows update" my computer hangs on the "preparing to install" It has been doing that for about 45 minutes. Whenever I stop the "preparing to install" and come back and use "windows update" again the computer goes directly back in the "preparing to install" mode. What am I doiinng wrong?

Answer:Windows Update hangs up

You can try to backstep to a time when things were working normally through a general system restore or specifically by uninstalling and reapplying updates as far back as need be.

When I click on settings>Update & Security, my laptop now automatically checks for updates. The problem is that the little blue dots passing by in the update search screen have been doing this for over two hours. I can't click on Advanced to check the history due to this. Is there something I am missing?

I have WinXP Pro connected via ADSL. Just over the last couple of days whenever I run Windows Update and press "scan" it states that its looking for updates and then hangs. The IE window running Update hogs the screen and I have to kill the application using WinXP CTL-Alt-Del.Office update works OK as does all other internet access.Also, what is really strange is that if I connect using a dial up modem it seems to work OK.I had this problem once before on a different system and it seemed to be fixed when I set the MTU values to 1458 in the registry. This hasn't worked this time.I have tried various fixes found on the web and nothing seems to work.Any ideas please...............

Answer:Windows Update Hangs

OK fixed the problem. I needed to set the MTU value for my network connection so I used DrTCP to set the MTU to 1458.Now all works fine.

Hi,

I have a computer which I haven't updated in a while. (Dumb, I know).

I have been trying to update it all day today and it keeps hanging at "Checking for the latest updates". I even let that screen run for 45 minutes and it was still working.

When I close IE it crashes and I have to stop it in the task manager.

I have run symantec, adaware, trendmicro and they all find nothing. I am about to run Spybot.

I have tried manually downloading the Windows update and running it.

I have tried disabling my firewall and Symantec.

I have tried stopping the DNS cache service as suggested on Trend micro.

I want to try connecting in safemode, but safemode disables my wireless...driver? I start IntelPROset and it says it can't find a wireless card. (sorry have forgotten exact language.)

Argh! Going crazy here.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Windows Update has started hanging while installing updates. It reached, "installing 20 of 28" and then just stops installing. I have tried Microsoft Fix It and the Update Repair Tool in the control panel but neither resolved the problem. I spent 45 minutes with Costco Concierge Service tech support who had me try numerous steps and computer restarts and then I lost my telephone connection. Using the "Stop Installation" button doesn't help and invoking Ctr-Alt-Delete doesn't stop the process. If I try to restart the computer the screen shows "installing 20 of 28 - Do Not turn off or unplug your computer" however, holding down the start/stop button and shutting down the computer is the only way to stop the process.
Finally, I just unchecked all but one updated and manually installed each one, a time consuming process because some required a computer restart. All download and installed except for Microsoft One Note 2010 KB2810072 which still hangs in mid installation. I've "Googled" the problem but all proposed solutions I have already tried so will try this bulletin board to see if anyone has an idea that has worked for them.

Answer:Windows Update Hangs

I, too, just ran into a problem with the latest group of Win 7 updates (a group of almost 30). Got the usual gold shield on my "Shut Down" button, so clicked it. In my case, the installs didn't hang and appeared "successful". However, no sooner had the system rebooted when the gold shield appeared again. Click the button again. 2 updates downloaded and appeared to install successfully. But again after the reboot, same gold shield appeared. This time I checked my update history and found that the same 2 updates were repeatedly installing "successfully", but obviously they weren't.

I also noticed that my Windows Live Mail stopped working. Program would open, but it kept saying I was working offline and did I want to go back online. Answer yes, pops up again. Answer yes again, then check the Work offline checkbox. Still checked. Tried to uncheck it. No go. Tried changing from encrypted (SSL) ports to non-encrypted. Did nothing. Tried repairing the program. Did nothing.

Finally did a system restore to one created 2 days ago. WLM now works perfectly. I went back to updates and allowed the ones for Office 2010 only; none of the ones for Win 7. I'm going to block the latter until I find out that M$ has fixed them.

Well when I start windows update it hangs at 0%. I checked their help area and it said download some script which I did and it said repair IE. To do that it said go to add remove and click change/remove then repair. Under Add/remove I didn't find IE and well I couldn't "repair" it.

What I'm asking is how do I repair it or is their some other way to fix this problem?

I have windows XP, running no firewall when I try it and it has worked before. Thanks in advance.

Regards,
-BB.
 

Answer:Windows Update Hangs.

Unfortunately, the Add-Remove/Repair thing only works if you've installed IE manually, upgrading from a prior version. Since WinXP comes with the latest version already riveted in place, itn's not in Add/Remove, and you can't do a repair.

Only way I know to globally "repair" IE in XP is to do a complete Windows XP repair/reinstall, which *should* repair IE.

Hello,
I need a bit of help to get my laptop running like it used to. This is what I have done. I have installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Ultimate and since I cannot get important updates to install correctly. Time after time I keep getting an blue screen (file attached). I also keep getting updates failed when I try to install them all. I get errors such as "80071a91" and "8007045D". Any ideas or way to fix this windows update and possibly my issues with the blue screen.

Any help I would greatly appreciate..
Thank you
jacal78

Answer:Windows hangs and cannot update help please

Both errors point to file system related issues. Most likely your HD is either bad or there's some file corruption that's occurred. This can also be a memory issue as well.

First thing to do is run CHKDSK /R followed by SFC /SCANNOW. If neither of those fixes the problem then you may very well have a bad hard drive. Do those for now and get back with us afterwards.

Hi!

My Win8 box is not quite 2wks old, so I'm a true newbie with the OS. I've tried searching for other threads on Windows Update failure, but haven't seen any referencing the formal release (eg, non-beta) date version. If I missed something, I apologize!

Anyhow, I've yet been able to get Windows Update to run on my box. I first noticed the problem when I was trying to retrieve printer drivers. The most that got me was a .NET framework failure. Then I tried getting the updates to the Store. That likewise has failed.

In addition, I'm also running into all kinds of app issues which I believe to be "update" related, but I can't of course confirm that since I can't get at any updates.

Anyhow, if any the gurus out there have some suggestions, I'd be very grateful!

Thanks so much.

Answer:Windows Update hangs

I of course forgot to mention that when I try to launch Windows Update from Control Panel, it likewise hangs.

Thnx again for your help!

Hi. Hopefully someone has resolved this and can help, as I see already that this problem has been around for a few months now. I have the Vista OS 32 bit.
My CPU started running very hot on Tuesday. Fan working hard continuous, caused by svchost.exe (Net Services) at a steady 49-51%. Turns out that the system was checking for the Tuesday updates. It took 24 hours! So Wednesday afternoon the computer was calm. Today the problem has returned, undoubtedly because I have the icon to install the updates. I clicked "install", and it hangs on "Downloading Updates, 0kb, 0%". This is 2 hours now.
This happened to a lesser degree last month as well, so there is clearly something not right about Windows Update that is heating up my CPU. This would not be happening if windows was not hanging while "checking for updates" and "downloading updates". I see that the patches KB3145739 and KB3153199, which solved it for many, were already installed in the previous updates. Thanks for any help with this!

Hi joezapp:
 
If the initial "Checking for updates..." phase of your Windows Updates run for long periods of time without throwing an error message, this is a common problem that currently affects many Vista users. On my 32-bit Vista system, I would see constant consumption of ~ 50% of my CPU by the the svchost.exe process (i.e., complete saturation of one of my dual cores) during the "Checking for updates.." phase of my Patch Tuesday updates. Process Explorer showed that all this CPU was being consumed by Windows Update service (wuauserv) and more specifically by a thread for the Windows Update Agent (wuaueng.dll).  My problem started in Aug 2015 - one month after the official release of Win 10 - and I would sometimes wait 5 or 6 hours before "Checking for updates..." reported that updates were available for download. See Kayla77's thread Processes in Task Manager During Updates for screenshots of CPU consumption on my system during one of these "Checking for updates..." hangs.
 
I've posted a possible solution to these "Checking for updates..." hangs in m#l's thread Updates not working, it has been searching for updates for hours in the MS Answers forum.  These step-by-step instructions are based on the workaround posted on Dalai's webpage at  http://wu.krelay.de/en/ and require users to pre-install the Windows ker...

The automatic windows update is stuck at 89% and doesn't update. I tried turning automatic update on and off, rebooted, went to the windows update site itself and it still doesn't work.

With windows update, it shows the progress bar full and says it is installing but it doesn't do anything.

How do I get it to finish updating or delete the update and restart it?

I'm using winxp home.

Hello,

I have Windows 7, 64bit. I had it set to manual update. I had not used the this particular machine in a while so I ended up with 88 new updates to go through. It was able to do two updates successfully but it now hangs for the remaining updates at %0. Fix It didn't find anything wrong. I was hoping to take advantage of the free Windows 10 upgrade but seems like the pending updates must occur first.

Thank you in advance for your help.

I found this on the MS Troubleshooting page for Windows Update many months ago, and it has worked for dozens of people I've heard from who couldn't get Windows Update to scan past the hanging 0%.

First, get off the Windows Update page: go Home, for instance, then ...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Open the Internet Options panel under Tools.
Choose the Connections tab.
Click the LAN Settings button.
UNcheck "Automatically detect settings".
OK, OK.

Try to access the Windows Update site again.
----------------------
It works for me and lots of others who are on cable or other HS connex. But you have to re-check the "Automatically detect settings" before you try to visit *other* MS sites: the only one that wants the Auto-detect switch OFF seems to be Windows Update. It just takes a sec to change the switch (and OK twice) when you want to use Windows Update, and then another sec to change it back when you're through with Windows Update and before you do anything else.

I found threads about this problem in Vista fora but not Seven ones, so please forgive the cross-post as I posted there in the hope of some assistance. This is however I think the more appropriate forum.
In this thread, A.Hohensee writes:
