Windows 10 downloading updates for other apps office, skype, NIVIDIA through windows update.

Question: Windows 10 downloading updates for other apps office, skype, NIVIDIA through windows update.

I don't want to install them automatically. I would like to delete these downloaded update files as I like to install them manually and I haven't restarted my computer yet for installation. Some of these update installation were failed, so whether these failed update files are still in my computer?
Where are all these files stored( both failed and for update files)? In which folder exactly?

I noticed last night that Windows Update had 55 updates to download.  Upon further inspection, it said updates were last downloaded sometime in November.
 
I have run the Windows Update Troubleshooting; it resolved some items, but not others (forgot to take a screenshot).  Now Windows Update says I have never even checked for updates.
 
Following the advice on other threads, I selected only 2 of the updates, then let it run overnight.  I woke up this morning to ZERO percent complete.  Ugh.
 
I'm able to view pages on Internet Explorer and Chrome without issue, and MalwareBytes was able to update just fine.  What next?

Windows Update says it's Downloading Updates. It has said that more than 30 minutes ago. And it's still 0 KB total, 0% complete. What's going on?

Answer:Windows Update says downloading updates but 0% after 1hr.

If you have a slow internet connection and/or you have just done a clean install and there are many updates to download, you'll just have to be patient. For example, I just did a recent clean install of Windows 8.0 and there were 62 updates to download. I'd wait a bit more and see what happens if any of my previous assumption apply.

Good luck.

i remember with windows xp and office, you could go to a different part of the microsoft windows update website in Internet Explorer, and it would prompt you with ActiveX to allow updates for Office, and after you did that then when you went to the normal windows (xp) update site there would be a whole other section of updates for microsoft office available. That was with office 2007 anyway.

i use a dell restore cd for windows 7 professional, on a dell pc obviously, to install win7 from scratch.
I can do windows updates no problem.
I have microsoft office 2010 professional plus with a valid license key, these are provided by my IT dept.
Office installs fine, during the install i can go through the options and install excel, powerpoint, all shared tools, and so on. Once installed, it works fine. There is no service pack installed at this point.

From here if I go windows update, I never see anything for office.
From within office, Microsoft Word file menu help for example, it shows office is activated and if i click on check for updates there it then opens an IE window which says updates can be done from start menu - programs - windows update. If i do that, it's a normal windows operating system update and I get nothing for office.

I have manually downloaded from microsoft, Office 2010 SP1 and SP2, and have installed either one.

Answer:not showing office updates thru windows update for office 2010 win7

You mean what's called Microsoft Update. If you go in to the settings in Windows Update, do you have this checked:

I have Office 2013 Pro Plus, but the click-to-run version which updates itself and is not part of Windows Update. But I don't think there's a click-to-run version for 2010 Pro Plus so that is probably not the issue here.

Hello,

My windows update has not been downloading/installing anything for a few weeks now, and is always using about 25 percent of my CPU. I just did a SCF scan and here are the results. It did say something was corrupt.

Here is the Log

https://www.dropbox.com/s/8j7lt40rcbebvm4/CBS.zip?dl=0
EDIT: I no longer have a problem. I was doing a bunch of things and then finally noticed that shutdown button had that little symbol that said it would install updates. I guess the reason why my WU download was always at 0kb was because the files were all there.

No more problems, however the scan still said something was corrupt, i would really appreciate it if someone looked through and see what i'm missing.

I've been having trouble with Windows Update recently:
* Three updates were stuck on downloading at 0%
* Rebooting the laptop resulted in it getting stuck at the "Getting things ready..." screen
The fix was actually pretty simple:
1. Reboot your computer
2. Open Explorer and navigate to C:\Windows\Software Distribution
3. Open an elevated command prompt (Admin)
4. Run these two commands:
net stop wuauserv
net stop bits
5. Select all files in abovementioned folder and delete them
6. Make sure to empty the trash afterwards
7. Reboot and run Windows Update again
That way I was able to fix my Windows Update process that has been stuck for more than a week now. It immediately found many more updates to install, downloaded them and installed them just fine.

Microsoft Office 10 (limited edition of only Word and Excel, stripped down) came with my Toshiba Satellite laptop. After some automatic Windows Updates that happened last night, I find that I cannot open my Word or Excel, and all my documents and spreadsheets are inaccessible. The programs were on some sort of virtual drive called "Q:\" , already installed when I bought the laptop computer. The computer will not let me access it nor open documents and spreadsheets that were created with those programs. Can anyone help? I am essentially out of business.
 

Answer:Microsoft Office apps won't open after Windows Update

I would recommend reinstalling them but since it came with the laptop that is not an option. Maybe talk to MS or post on this forum (previously MS Answers): http://goo.gl/nt2GK.

Answer:How to get office updates as windows update option?

What version of Office are you using?. If you are using Office 2013 updates do not show in the usual Windows Updates at all. Office 2013 updates occur automatically in the background. You can set Updates by opening one of the Office applications, select File & then select Office Account & you will see a box saying Office Updates click on that & drop down menu will show some Update alternatives & you can get it to Update Now if you wish to see if you are up to date. See attached screen shot.

You can check in Control Panel, Programs & Features, Microsoft Office 2013 to see when the last update version was installed & it series number.

Hi, I recently formatted my Dell Inspiron Duo netbook, with Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. I installed all of the software which I run on it without any problems.

When I try to update Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus (32bit) Windows Update only finds a few updates, and after they're installed it doesn't find anymore updates. It doesn't even find Office 2010 SP1.

{Note: I had no problems with other updates like Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 or other Microsoft updates.



I tried uninstalling Office 2010 and installing it again but nothing changed. The privacy settings which show up the first time you run an Office application I set it as "Recommended settings".

I also tried downloading Office 2010 SP1 (32bit) and when I tried to run it an error came up saying something like version mismatch (I presume that you need to install other updates before running the setup & I also tried to download an other update but the same error came up.)

I didn't have this problem before I formatted the computer.}

I hope I gave a detailed description of my issue, and thanks.

Hi,

I'm on Windows 7 Enterprise SP1.

I have Office 2013 Professional Plus.

Whenever I check Windows Update for updates, it never seems to bring up updates for Office.  I assume there have been at least some updates to Office 2013 since it was released?

My Windows Update screen tells me:

"You receive updates: For Windows only."

When I click the "Find out more" to get updates for other MS products, all that happens is the IE opens up on a page that says "Use your Start menu to check for updates"

So... how do I get Windows Update to check for updates to Office 2013?  I feel very confused--I mean, shouldn't I be able to set Windows Update to check for updates for a whole host of MS programs (Silverlight, .NET, Office, etc.)?
I've tried changing the Windows Update settings to include other Microsoft products but there's no option to do so when I check.

Any insight would be appreciated! Someone recommended I ask here because I'm on Windows 7 Enterprise.

Answer:Windows Update won't find updates for Office 2013?

So the thing that finally worked was installing Silverlight, which apparently can force Windows Update to include/adopt Microsoft update.  Once that was installed, Windows Update recognized a huge number of Office updates.

Why no other avenues to make the Microsoft Update option show up and get it "switched on" worked is totally beyond me.

2. As suggested by Microsoft, did Hard Reset through Settings. This did not work

For no reason. Also, on almost every application I open up, the text or buttons are TINY.

Answer:Running 64 bit windows but only downloading 32 bit apps? Help

The majority of applications will be 32 bit apps, the main reason you have a 64 bit OS is because of the RAM installed, A 32 bit OS will only see 4 GB of RAM, you need a 64 bit OS to see more RAM
There are 64 bit apps out there like Photoshop and other Graphics design software that required a lot of RAM to function correctly. There is no issue installing 32 bit apps on a 64 bit OS
Text and buttons been tiny are most likely due to the screen resolution!

So today, as it is all over Windowscentral, some of the MS core apps and VLC for Windows 10 got their updates. However, they are stuck at 0% and showing no signs of progress. Do you guys have the same problem and how to fix it? I've tried cancelling them all, rebooting and download on at a time but it was no use. Many thanks.

Answer:Why is the store not downloading my apps on Windows 10?

Yep, same here, 12 apps are stuck. The recent Windows update screwed it all, Mail, calendar, Note and store. Even uninstalling that update didn't work. Can't figure out how to make it work.

My computer had 45 updates that were stuck in downloading updates for 12 - 24 hours+.
I decided to stop the downloading updates process to find out why my computer was stuck in downloading updates.
I followed instructions from a Windows forum and turned off my avast, malwarebytes and windows firewall and tried to download the 45 updates again.
The 45 updates were stuck in downloading updates for another 12 - 24+ hours.

So I went to a different forum and did the following to the computer:

- Ran Microsoft FixIt, received error 0x80070424
- Tried to run update. Still hangs
- Went into msconfig and went to selective start-up and disabled windows
update. Still hanfs.
- Noticed Chromium browser was installed; uninstalled it and deleted subkeys
in the registry
- Ran malwarebytes and discovered 3 viruses:

Hey guys,
I'm having a very strange issue with my Windows Store app, I'm not sure what is causing this issues but I'm turning to you guys for some help.
Any Apps I try to download or update from the Windows Store download extremely slow, and I mean like SLOW. Every time something is getting ready to start, it just sits at 0.0MB for however long it feels like. It can be minutes or it could be hours. I thought something was broken but I can't figure out what.
I went as far as doing a system reformat and starting from scratch just to be sure and even then this issue is still here.
I'm running Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 10532 on Desktop and 10.0.10535.1004 on Mobile, and yes this is happening on both, not as bad on my but it's gotten terrible on my PC, it use to download anything in seconds, now nothing.
My mobile device is the Lumia 1520 and my PC Specs are
AMD 8350 (4.0Ghz)
16GB DDR3 RAM
AMD R9 290
1300Watt PSU
I'm at a lost and here is some more info.
On my wife's PC and phone (1020) running on the same network (PC very similar setup) Isn't having these problems. I'm starting to think that maybe it's possible either a setting is being used that I have no idea is and is causing the issue or even possibly something with my account is causing this issue.
Thought I would come here first to see if maybe anyone has some suggestions as I've not gotten anything from Microsoft just the typical sfc/scan and so forth...
Thanks for any help!

Working on an HP 5800 sff running Win XP Pro, SP3, with MS Office 2007 installed.

In our corporate environment, we push out Windows updates once a month. I have a user who, for the past few months, loses either Word or Excel from the Office suite when the updates are applied. And I don't mean they don't work, I mean they are gone, icons and everything. I can reinstall the apps and things are fine until next month when the updates go out again. I've tried un/re installing the Office suite in it's entirety, but that doesn't fix the issue. I've googled and binged this issue to no avail. Does anyone have any insight, or perhaps someone has seen this before?

Hello to everyone.

Since Windows 10 1607 update I am driven crazy with this error (0x800070005) which appears when I try to download new app.

Old Windows Store apps are working normally, but I can't download any new one. I tried several solutions I found on internet, without success:
1) powershell and command prompt commands for manual resseting store
2) WSReset.exe
3) that WIndows Repair software that is often mentioned
4) Changing permisions on packages folder, WindowsApps folder etc...

Not a single solution worked. I tried system restore, but once system updates to 1607, it starts again. It is clean Windows 10 install...

Only thing that worked: I made other account, local one. On that account, I logged in Windows Store with my normal account I otherwise use. On that local account, signed only to Windows Store, I can download apps normally. When I return to my standard account, I can install only apps that I downloaded to my local account before - but not other one...

Except reinstalling whole damn thing, migrating account to new one would maybe help... But it is a little too much to do now, so is there any other solution that I maybe missed? I really can not believe that I have to reinvent wheel (to create new my account) just to use damn Windows Store normally?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I guess the title is pretty self-explanatory. I recently installed Windows 10 (the day it came out). I've been trying to download Minecraft (don't judge me) and it won't start. I currently have eight apps that need to be downloaded or updated, Minecraft being one of them. Only three of them will start, but they stop immediately. For example, Shazam has been downloading for two days now and it's stuck at 0.1mb of 2mb.
So while three are going, the others are sitting at pending.
Minecraft is currently, and has been at, 0.0mb of 74.8mb.
Is anyone else having this problem? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Although, I would think they went with Office when it was uninstalled.

I've got Office 2003 Student Edition (all installed, minus Outlook). I haven't done any updates to it. I did not install the Microsoft GDI+ Detection tool. And I only visit Windows Update (not Microsoft Update) and install the critical updates under custom install.I'm wondering:1. Are the updates for MS Office that are critical security things included when you do Windows Update? (For example, there are a number of things listed here towards the bottom: http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?storyid=2232 -- would those have been included in the last batch of critical Windows updates?2. Do you need the GDI+ thing to do Office Updates?3. When you go to the Office Updates site, it wants you to install and run some kind of Active X thing. Is this necessary? And can it cause any problems?4. Can doing critical Office updates (separate from whatever, if anything, that comes with Windows Update) cause any problems or conflicts with other things on your computer?Thanks for the help!

Answer:How Important Are Ms Office Updates? Are They Included In Windows Critical Updates?

I don't have that detection tool either. At least some of the office updates are available through the windows update feature. You can also navigate to the Office updates site from the windows update site. There are no problems with installing the office updates separately. In fact, I generally download only 1 or 2 updates at a time as I am on dial-up.

Windows 8.1 keeps downloading Windows 10 manual updates

Yup, everything was fine. So today when I do a Check for Updates. Windows 10 downloads to laptop and creates the usual folder $Windows.~BT

I reboot adnd it asks if I want to ACCEPT installtion f WIndows 10..I say DECLINE. ALso note, I never had WIn 10 on this 8.1laptop and never reserved a copy.

So I know that some updates were not installed and I reboot. I then do a CHECK FOR UPDATES again. Now Windows 10 starts being downloaded again and we all know it takews a while.

It asks if I want to ACCEPT and install it. I say no.

However there are the other updates I want to install. See attached. And I cannot install them...

So I read some threads and uninstalled a few KB's and then hid them. And rebooted.

Windows 10 comes down again... Another 45 minutes wasted.

So the questions (sorry) are:
1. How do I get Windows 10 to stop downloading?
2. TO stop asking me if I want to install it when I decline it
3. And how do I install the other updates?

Thanks so much

If I turn Windows Firewall Control (v4.8.3.0) off the apps download and install fine. With WFC active store reports an error and no download.

Answer:Windows Firewall Control Blocks Store From Downloading New Apps

Is there a way to set 'Windows Firewall Control' to allow you to see exactly what it's blocking? That way you can then create rules to allow items to make outbound connections?

Unfortunately, I've never used Windows Firewall Control, so I'm going to be of little help to you on this front. However, with the Anniversary Update, the Windows applications listed at the bottom of this post need to make outbound connections, which is different from pre-Anniversary Update.

If 'Windows Firewall Control' uses the native Windows firewall, then potentially you could run Command Prompt as Administrator, paste the following into it and hit enter. That will add these outbound allow rules directly into Windows Firewall. Alternatively, you can look at the program locations listed below and see if you can manually add them to an allow list in 'Windows Firewall Control'. The main one that is probably blocking store programs from downloading/installing will likely be installagentuserbroker.exe.


Code:
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="+ Windows - InstallAgentUserBroker" dir=out action=allow program="%SystemRoot%\System32\installagentuserbroker.exe" enable=yes profile=any remoteport=80,443 protocol=tcp

I recently got laptop with windows 8. I notice that whenever I am trying to install a larger app from the Windows store, I cant browse the internet or use apps that require a connection. Even people on the same wifi network have the same problem, even if it is just me downloading the app. Is windows configured to use ALL of the bandwidth in order to install an app? Is there a setting where I can make it only use like half? I don't mind if it takes a little longer to install.
Thanks

Answer:Why does our internet connection stop working when downloading apps in Windows 8?

What is your wifi download speed.? And be aware there is a difference between the download speed given by your provider (mostly a max speed) and the actual speed you get ("including" distances to server, interferes etc)
If this is "low" then probably the downloading uses the total bandwidth.
If you open the task manager during the download you can see what the actual download speed is or use a app to check your download speed.

IE is part of Windows, so you will see updates for it whether you use it or not. If you are seeing updates specifically dealing with Office, then you have it or some part of it installed. You don't get updates for a product that isn't there.

Answer:Cannot set option to include Office updates in Windows Updates

Hi there

When you installed office did you install from an ISO or somewhere like MSDN download. For these Office will be updated in the normal Windows update (set in the options of windows update to get updates for ALL Ms products rather than just Windows).

If you installed via the Online application then you can get updates by going into Office Account and then clicking the Update Office icon. These won't be handled by the standard check for updates in windows update. This is for Office 2016 and Office 365. For Office 2010 there's no change -- don't know about Office 2013 --never used it.

I am using Office 2013 Pro & it does not show updates in the normal Windows Update section on my computer. I have to refer to any Office application, select File & then Accounts to see that I have automatic updates selected & the update number, but it does not tell me if it is the latest update, so I have to check to see that it is the latest, which it is apparently.
I would like to be able to see which Office updates are available & to install them as I do with the usual Windows Updates. Can anyone suggest a solution please.

Answer:How do I get Office 2013 updates to show in Windows Updates.

Just a random thought. Does your computer have the "Click-to-Run" version of Office installed? Updates for the C2R version do not appear in Windows Update or WSUS. Updates are downloaded in the background automatically (whether you want them to or not).

You can identify C2R by looking under the File tab. There will be a button that shows update options (on or off) and the version number. Another way to identify C2R is in Window's Programs & Features. With C2R, you no longer have the ability to add or delete Office applications.

Before I click install it says it's download at 68% but won't download anymore. When I manually select to download them all it just goes to 0% and doesn't go anywhere. This is getting annoying because when I need to shut my computer down it tries to download and install them but never works. Any help? Thanks.

Answer:Windows 7 Updates Not Downloading

If you don't have a nasty malware, then try this:
Download one and only one of the updates. Do not rush things. After install is finished AND the hard disk has settled down, then RESTART your computer whether MS said you needed to restart or not.

Keep doing this. One update at a time. Slow and tedious. I suspect you either have a virus or other software which you have installed which is dragging your system down.

I sold my last PC to a friend a year ago with Windows ME installed. We recently re-formatted the PC and now need all the updates from when I bought 4 years ago brand new. I have a PC with Windows XP - and broadband (he is on dial-up). Is it possible to download the ME updates onto my PC, burn onto a CD and load onto his PC? - if so - how is this done.

My Dell desktop was Vista Home Premium SP2 32bit. On 4/9 I did a clean install of 32bit Windows 7 Home Premium (Service Pack 1) with an OEM disk that I purhcased. I did not transfer any programs from the old system; have done all completely new installs on everything.

I ran Windows Update and it just ran and ran forever. It never said "Windows is up to date". I checked the View Updates and there were 2 that apparently installed on the date I did the installation, 4/9 (see screenshot).

I did the activation this morning and it was successful. I tried running Windows Update and again it keeps running without end. I finally shut it down.

Secunia psi reports that my Windows 7 is up to date; however, I ran Belarc Advisor and it shows 147 missing updates, most of them either Important or Critical.

sfc /scannow reports: Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity errors.
I am attaching the CBS log asked for in the instructions I read. I have downloaded the SURT tool but haven't run it yet. Perhaps there is some little thing that I am not doing right so I will wait until I hear back from the forum.

I recently purchased a new BlackBerry phone that requires running BlackBerry OS6 and SP3 on my Windows XP Home Edition.

After having multiple crashes and continual reboots with SP3, I found the fix in your forums and FINALLY have SP3 installed on my HP computer running the AMD processor (thank you for that!)

However, I still cannot open BlackBerry OS6 after it has been installed. As soon as I open it, I get the "BlackBerry Desktop Software has encountered a problem..." window.

Upon reading some BlackBerry forums, I found that I might need to run Windows Updates before OS6 will work. However, I don't have internet to that PC and tether my BlackBerry to get internet service at all.

Is there a way to download all the Windows Updates I need to an external drive and then load them on the HP PC that does not have internet? How would I do this?

I built my friend a Biostar IDEQ 200NB (I think), using a CPU that isn't properly/fully detectable by the motherboard (Supposed to be a Barton 2600+... reads just as AMD Athlon (tm))...

Anyway, installed Windows XP and used a SP2 cd to install SP2. All drivers are installed. I'm trying to update windows through Windows Update, but it'll get as far as the box saying its preparing to download, and then it just sits. It won't actually download the file or install it...

I can't get past this... No firewalls or anything should be blocking it, I can use the internet fully.

Any help?

Help ! I booted my system (Windows XP Professional) yesterday and noticed that everything was operating very, very slowly. I launched Task Manager and saw that my CPU utilization was pegged at 100%. The culprit as SVCHOST.exe that was sucking up my CPU time. I also noticed in my System Tray that the Microsoft ICON was there and when I moused over it there was a message indicating that downloads were in process at 11% complete. I let the machine run for several hours (6hrs) and the percentage of completion was only up to 21%. I shut the system down and rebooted today and noticed that the download process picked up where it left off when I shut the system down and let the machine run for another 3 hours and it had only advance to 31% complete. My temperature monitor indicator alarm was sounding off since my CPU activity was continually pegged at 100% and the CPU was overheating. QUESTION: How can I abort this download ? HELP ! HELP !!!!

When I select updates to download it starts preparing for download, but does not download. Said something about internet connectivity. I have no problems with the internet, updates for programs regularly download, etc..

On the failed downloads the error messages are: Codes: 643, 57, C355, 9. Updates either do not start to download at all or after about 20 minutes of preparing to download they will download and then fail.

UNABBLE TO DOWNLOAD WINDOWS UPDATES

Answer:Not downloading WINDOWS UPDATES

What version of Windows are you using? What actually happens when you try to update?

Microsoft has added an option to the Windows Update in Windows 10. This option is significant as it now allows to get Windows Updates and apps from other PCs. In effect - you can download Windows Updates & Apps for other PCs.
From Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced options > Choose how updates are delivered option is added.
At least I’m noticing it now..don’t know since how long it was added.
Download Windows updates and apps from other PCs in addition to Microsoft. This can help speed up app and update downloads.
When this option is turned ON, your PC may also send parts of previously downloaded Windows Updates and apps to PCs on your local network or PCs on the internet, depending on what’s selected from the provided options.
The link ‘Learn More’ is not yet available. Hope to see more details from Microsoft.
Even the option ‘Defer Upgrades’ seems recent :
Some Windows 10 editions let you defer upgrades to your PC. When you defer upgrades, new Windows features won’t be downloaded or installed for several months. Deferring upgrades doesn’t affect security updates.
Note that deferring upgrades will prevent you from getting the latest Windows features as soon as they’re available (Source:meraTechPort)

I just upgraded my OS to Windows 10 from 8.1 a few days back, and the Windows Store is the only thing giving me issues at the moment.

It shows the Progress Bar of the download but frequently it just stays at 0.0MB / ???? MB downloaded for the apps and doesn't move at all. I tried to clear the Windows Store Cache even the command prompt of sfc/scannow (sfc/scannow says no integrity violation) but still there was no progress.

I tried googling for answers but none to avail as most of it are for windows 8.1. So if have any tips to solve it, it will be much appreciated. Thanks

Answer:Windows Store not Downloading Updates

Got the same problem and tried already several solutions, which are mostly applicable for Windows 8/8.1 btw.

- Troubleshooter doesn't find anything wrong
- Did delete several times the SoftwareDistribution-folder, after disabling the services (BITS, CryptSvc and Wuauserv) and enabling again
- Disabled some services via msconfig and restarted, but also that didn't help.
- Did even uninstall all McAfee-software (which was crap anyway)

I reformatted my system the other day, and right now, the message pops up where it says "download updates" and when i click to download them and update them, it doesn't do anything. Usually i see the shield and the download percentage, but now i don't see it stay up anymore. Think the windows update servers are down?

Oh, this is the first instance this has happened to me, before it would always download everything and update everything just fine.

any ideas?

I've read in other threads that people are having the same problem as me and I tried to do what was recommended to my computer but it hasn't worked. I have Windows Vista and have seen my computer is running a little slower than usual and I think it's Malware but I was also trying to install Windows updates but it had been failing. I tried running these lines:

regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wuweb.dll
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wups2.dll
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wups.dll
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wucltui.dll
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wuaueng.dll
regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wuapi.dll

when I ran the first line I got a warning box starting out by saying: the module "regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wuweb.dll" failed to load etc... It use to update perfectly fine but they have all failed recently. Please help thank you!
