Can't update Windows 7 - Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80072efd

Question: Can't update Windows 7 - Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80072efd

Tried the following:
1. Update works if I bypass the router, ie. connect the PC directly to modem.
2. It also works from different ISP, through router (at work).
3. Format disk & Reinstall windows 7

From windowsupdate.log:

Preferred Solution: Can't update Windows 7 - Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80072efd

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: Can't update Windows 7 - Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80072efd

Hi,

Try to remove the proxy server entry from the WinHTTP proxy configuration for Windows 7:

1.
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start programs and files box.
2.
Right-click cmd.exe in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.
Note If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or click Continue.
3.
Type the following command and then press Enter:
netsh winhttp show proxy
Note The proxy setting is listed next to Proxy Server. If there is no proxy server, Direct Access <no proxy server> is shown in the Command Prompt window.
4.
To remove the listed proxy setting, type the following command and then press Enter:

netsh winhttp reset proxy
5.
Click Start, click All Programs, click Windows Update, and then try to download and install updates again.Alex Zhaozx

Hi all,

System: Win 7 Prof 64 bit SP1.

Automatic updates went into loop few days ago,when the installation of optional update KB2506143 failed. Log files had several entries with 0x80070bc9 error. Inspite of hiding the update the problem persisted.

Tried lot of microsoft fix it's, few other stuffs and the current state of the computer is,

a. After I login into the system. Windows update says, "Check for updates for your computer" with RED Check Mark. Always install updates to enhance your computer's security ....
b. When I invoke "Check for updates" button. After sometime, it shows, "Restart your computer to install important updates. Windows can't update important files and services while system is using them. save any open ......
c. If I invoke "Restart now' button, it would repeat to step #a. This is in a loop now. (no more updates are visible in the screen including the hidden updates).

Answer:Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x80070bc9 - Looping

Hello and welcome snvasanth try this Windows update error 0x80070BC9 with windows 7

na d it may be worth while installing the Microsoft Readiness Tool.


The error you are getting seems to be related to an Office program too - have you just installed one recently or updated it?

Anyhow the Readiness Tool is worth getting anyway.

Hi All

Some of our client machine(Windows7) is not taking update from WSUS server. When we verified the WindowsUpdate logs, we could see that WU client version is changed to 7.6.7600.256 from 7.5.7601.17514.Our WSUS server is running with version WSUS 3.0 SP1 on windows 2003 server. So we suspect this may be the reason windows 7 machines is getting the error message 'Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x800b0001' when it try to get the update from WSUS server.

So please suggest any steps to change the WU client version on windows 7 back to 7.5.7601.17514

Please find the attached log file.

Answer:Getting the error Windows Update Client failed to detect with error 0x800b0001

Hi this is about your error Error code when you try to use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates: "0x800B0001"

Whelp to start this off I've Upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7. I knew I was going to have issues with it considering it just came out but I think the issues I'm having are registry related errors due to Some issues i used to have with windows 7. So back about in I'd say March or April I'd had the Issue of malware getting into my registry and changing Chrome's, Firefox's and IE's Proxy setting to other values. Resulting in greyed out Boxes under internet settings and Under the connections tab Saying "Some settings are managed by your system adminsitrator" . I have gotten it resolved by deleting the values. But now its back again. Also you should know i did full scans with all of the following before posting here those include. Rougekiller, AdwCleaner, Hitman Pro, Avast, Emisoft Security Suite, and Malwarebytes. They Found the general PUP and Malware Which have been removed But there are Values that probably need deleted or changed and I need help finding them I've been browsing for an Answer on why the store was not working for a while until I realized what was going on. Note that Firefox works Fine but Internet explorer and anything Microsoft Related Cannot access the Internet that Includes the store windows update and logging into my Microsoft account.
Oh I've also Ran SFC /Scannow and CCleaner.

Any help would be appreciated

I have a computer lab that I've recently installed a Windows 7 Enterprise image onto 35 Dell Optiplex computers (most are 380's, a few older 360's).
I created the image using MDT2010 and used one of the 380's as a reference.
All has been well for about a month or two but recently 6 computers are giving me Windows Update errors with the error code of 80080005.
I have a WSUS 3.0 SP2 server running, and all of my other computers seem to be getting their updates just fine.  WSUS has the problematic computers in it's database, but it shows that they haven't checked in for "x" days.
I have Avast 4.8 Professional installed, I have OpenDNS configured to block bad websites, ____, etc. and I also use an Untangle server to prevent access to bad websites.  I've ran a Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware scan on the affected computers, as well
as Windows Defender scan, and Windows Live OneCare scans, and all have found no malicious software.
I have also tried resetting the Windows update service as described here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058 as well as a script that supposedly does the same thing, but also resets all previous
update events, but I can't find the script source right now (I had ran it last week, and it didn't work).
I'm currently running a SFC /Scannow on one of the computers, and now it has finished.  It gives the... Read more

Answer:Windows Update Error 80080005 Windows 7 Client with WSUS 3.0 SP2 server

Alright, I re-attempted to run the "SFC /scannow" command under a Administrator Command Prompt window, and got this error:
"SFC /scannow error message: Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service"
I searched around a bit, and found a suggestion to check that the TrustedInstaller/Windows Module Installer is running.
When trying to start the Windows Module Installer, I get this error: 
 

Windows Modules Installer - Error 1450 Insufficient System Resources
What a fun problem this is turning out to be.  I'd like
to just re-image these computers, but I fear that it'll just happen again and I'm wondering why it's only a handful of computers that are affected, yet I have over 65 machines that were all installed from the same exact image.
 
I'll keep poking along trying to find something that fixes this darn issue.  If anybody comes up with any ideas, I'll gladly try them.  Thanks!
 
Just found this: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itproui/thread/42e2a200-defe-4c6b-a1b3-606836dcfabb
and I'm trying the suggestion to set the registry limit size to "no limit" (setting hex value of 0xfffffff) to see if it works.  If it gets the sfc to run, it might fix my windows update issue as well.

Hi
I'm running Windows 7 32bit.

I performed a clean install on a new hard drive, I successfully ran a few updates with Windows update and eventually was offered the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile which i installed.
When i tried to check for updates after that it failed with error 0x8024402f.
I have tried the "FixIt" tools from Microsoft, none hav ehelped.
The only thing that allows me to check for updates succesfully is if I uninstall .NET Framework 4 Client Profile.

I downloaded more updates from the Microsoft catalog site, specifically for .NET 4, hoping that these would fix the problem.

I have also tried reinstalling windows (after having formatted the drive again) and without any other software (not even anti virus software) running windows update.
The same thing happened; the first few updates were succesfull, but as soon as .NET 4 Client profile is installed, checking for updates fails.

I have a few files that might be helpfull namely a Network capture taken during the attempted update check, an excerpt from the WindowsUpdate.log file.

Bottom line is though, This problem only happens when i have .NET framework 4 Client Profile installed.

This is a very strange problem becuase I installed the .NET Framework 4 when it was released and have not had any issues with updates since then. Its just recently since I reformatted...

Please help!


PS:
I had to append .TXT to the .cap file in order to upload it.

Answer:.NET Framework 4 Client Profile causing Windows Update Error 0x8024402

So, I ended up intstalling .NET Framework 4.5 BETA and now I am able to check for and install updates through Windows Update.

Anyone doing a fresh install of Windows 7 should manually install SP1 (if needed).

The Windows Update Agent was renamed to Windows Update Client.

Manually requesting a search for Windows Updates on a Windows 7 computer with SP1 install should prompt the user to install a pre-SP1 Windows Update (WU) Agent (7.6.7600.320). Seems odd.

That old WU Agent worked just fine until Microsoft changed the update servers. The info coming back from the servers seems to now cause high RAM/CPU usage for some computers... but that old WU Agent should eventually get the job done. The computer might be useless for any other task for 24+ hours.

You can skip installing that old WU Agent and manually install the latest WU Client instead. Or, you can manually install the latest WU Client over top of that old WU Agent.

However, below is what I encountered when I went to install the latest Windows Update Client on a W7 pro 64bit SP1 computer.

I started by using these search terms in Google:
"Windows Update Client" "March 2016" "Windows 7"
As this post ages, replace "March 2016" with the current month/year.
If that does not find the desired KB, try the previous month.

That lead me to this link for March 2016: KB3138612.

The W7 pro 64bit SP1 computer has IE8 installed by default.

Visiting KB3138612 via IE8 got me this:

Hello,
I have been having problems installing 4 Important Security Updates and 3 optional updates onto my machine. I have tried to install them several times since they was released, but every time I get the same Error Code: 800B0100. They are the following:

Important:
- Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3021952)
- Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3004375)
- Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3023562)
- Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3031432)

Optional:
- Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2574819)
- Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2592687)
- Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2830477)

I have followed the steps from your "Windows Update Posting Instructions", and I have attached the logs to the thread as well. However, the CBS.log will not allow me to read it so I created a new sfcdetails.txt file on my desktop and included it with the zipped folder instead of the true CBS.log file (I hope that is alright). There were also "CbsPersist" Cabinet Files in the Logs/CBS folder which made the zipped file much too large so I did not include them. Let me know if you do need them and I can put them on my google drive and give the link.

Thanks!

I have an HP Pavilion dv6 running Windows 7 Home. I decided to update to Windows 10. Download was successful, it attempted to install the update I guess, was on the settings part. It got stuck though on a blank screen with just a cursor for two hours so I turned off my laptop. Then it restored Windows 7, and now it's redownloading the Windows 10 update again. Thing is, I got an issue with my laptop. Whenever it boots up, I get an error message about the fan not working properly and I have to hit enter for it to continue with the restart otherwise it will power off. Could that have affected the update to Windows 10?

I have been trying to install the latest windows 7 updates for several days and all of them (14) keep failing. The same error is received for all of them, Error 8000ffff. I researched what the updates were for and it looks like they are for Windows 7 x64, I have Windows 7 x86. Also, just before this happened I started getting an error message that my windows was not genuine. But I ran the activation and it says it is genuine (I have had Windows 7 Professional for a couple of years). I did some googling and ran into several post that suggested uninstalling KB971033 (for the windows not genuine error), so I did that and the error message no longer shows.

The windows Malicious Tool update worked just fine.

Any ideas?

I purchased a new notebook with Windows 7 in October. During the first weeks I uninstalled McAfee and replaced the harddrive. Since November Windows Update fails with error messages and defender does not start anymore. I made several virus scans (complete) with multiple antivirus programs but nothing showed up.Since it took my days to install various software, I do not want to re-install W7. I also have no good backup that I could restore. I am really surprised that there is not even a single entry regarding the error code in the Microsoft Knowledge base or elsewhere.I really would appreciate help. 

Answer:Windows Update does not work, Windows Standalone Update Installer stops with error 0xc8000247 (Windows 7 Home Premium on Acer Aspire 1810TZ notebook)

 
Got it !!!!
If You are using notebooks with with hard drive larger than 700 GB you probably should update Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver.

Hello, I've been have several issues with my laptop ever since I swapped over my faulty C drive by Ghosting it onto another HDD. My troubleshooters all fail to run when I try to start them and Windows Update will not work despite the fact that I've checked and re-checked that the service is running. I've run sfc twice now with reboots in between and I've tried to repair install windows 7 using the tutorial provided by this forum, but I keep running into errors while trying to fix the problem.

I do not want to run a clean install unless I absolutely have to, but repairing it doesn't seem to work. I have the CBS log and the error codes from the troubleshooters if you need them.

Answer:Windows 7 repair install failed; error when trying to run Update

Start by running a couple of Startup Repairs to make sure the boot files are in order.

Post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Help Forums.

Did the clone hold activation after cloning? Check at Computer>Properties activation link.

If these are okay, then let's move to addressing the UPdates. Try each of these tutorials:
reset Windows Update components
System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008
Windows Update - Reset - Windows 7 Forums

Report back the results of each of these steps.

Is this the original Asus factory preinstall with the bloatware and duplicate utilities that have better versions built into Win7? If so this is a corrupt install to begin with that smothers Win7 native performance. So I'd stronglly consider doing the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 as you'd go from one of the worst possible installs to one of the best. Once you've done it you can preserve a backup image so you never have to do it again.

CheckSUR found and fixed a large number of errors - but there are still a couple of errors remaining, which it may be able to fix if you run the tool a second time. Please post (just) the new CheckSUR.log file afterwards.

There are a couple of errors in the CBS.log which may relate to the errors outstanding in the CheckSUR - so we need to get those fixed first, and only then see if it's affected the SFC/CBS results.

I'm trying to install update KB2639308 but it keeps saying that it fails and gives me the error code WindowsUpdate_FFFFFFFE. I looked it up online and it says that it can't update because of malware. However, when I run Norton and do a full system scan it doesn't find anything. I also tried to fix it with the Windows Update Troubleshooter and that doesn't help either. Is there anything else I can do without having to fully reinstall Windows 7 like the info on the site says? Please help.

Answer:Failed Windows Update, error code WindowsUpdate_FFFFFFFE

Hi,

A pre-requisite for this update is having Service Pack 1 installed. Can you confirm that this is the case?

Also, which version of Norton are you running? Is it the very latest? I have found posts where running Microsoft's own MSE doesn't find any malware, yet the error this occurs, so lets try something totally different:

Please perform an online virus scan using ESET
ESET Online Scanner

Can you also please run this tool to allow us to diagnose any other conditions that might prevent this update installing:

Basically when I tried to do a windows update, it downloaded about 5 other updates and installed them, but 2 updates did not download. Instead of "Downloading [updatename]... complete!" it says it failed. I tried to download/install them again after a system restart (had to restart for the updates that DID install) but no luck. I tried disabling my firewall and antivirus and tried again, didn't do anything. The error code is 0x80070005, and it just says to install the update again (which I can't do...). Specifically, the updates are "Update for Windows XP (KB951072)" and "Security Update for Windows XP (KB950974)"

I think you go to Windows Folder-Software Distribution.  After deleting everyhting in the folder., i think you are to restart the computer.  Once finished the list of updates in Windows Update will be cleared. 
 
Please correct if I am wrong.  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

This is the way I suggest :
 
Go to start > type in cmd > right click at cmd.exe > Run as Administrator.
 
Type in "net stop WuAuServ" without quotes > hit enter.
 
Type in "start %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore" without quotes > hit enter. A folder will come up. Don't close that black window.
 
Rename file "DataStore" to "DataStoreold" without quotes.
 
Go to that black screen, Type in "net Start WuAuServ" without quotes > hit Enter. After it finished you can close it.
 
Now your Windows Update logs will now cleared.

Well; one thing i can tell ya is that when it says cannot update while files in are in use basically means you need to restart your system. Try restarting and see what happens. It may tell you either when the system is in the process of restarting; that its configuring updates. Do not do a hard power down as that can cause even more issues while its updating.

I have a HP Elitebook Folio 9470p.  It came with Windows 8, and I installed it on my corporate domain.  I was trying to do some Windows updates so  I could upgrade it to Windows 8.1, but it fails installing the updates, whether or not I try
to install them one at a time or all of them.  It has about 18 updates it needs from security updates to a .net framework update.  I run Symantec EP, and disabled it, checked for driver updates for things like display and networking and they are
all up to date.
I'm at a loss as to what to do.  It gives this error in the event log for each file, Event ID 20.

Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x800F0922: Security Update for Windows 8 for x64-based Systems (KB2862152).

This is the example for KB2862152, but it gives the same error for every one.  I've tried to auto fix for Windows update issues and it fixed a couple of the issues, but not all of them, and provides no other help.
I also deleted folders and files from the SoftwareDistribution folder as well, to no avail.  Any ideas what I can do to get whatever updates it needs, so I can fully patch it, and upgrade it to Win 8.1?

Thanks for any help!

Hello everyone I have a problem updating my windows to version 1703 (Currently on 1607). What happened was on my PC there was an update available and decided to update after it restarted I got the screen "working on updates" So I decided to leave it there for a while and did something else when I came back all I saw was a black screen the PC wasn't like restarting or anything. I waited 30 minutes and nothing has changed just black screen so I decided to force turn off my PC and turn it on again my PC was checking for repairs then went back to updating when it got to 87% the update just froze like nothing was moving at all not even the loading thing it's just literally froze I waited an hour and nothing so unfortunately I forced turned off my PC and it restored back to the previous version I look through the update history it says I have updated the windows 10 creators update privacy settings? which was the one I failed and I looked at the version I was and it's still 1607 (screenshots below) and when I try to update it says it's up to date. I am kinda panicking a little and was wondering why is this happening to my gaming computer.

Oh by the way I went to troubleshooting and this is what I got a lot of errors

Update:I ran troubleshooter again and got the same thing "Repair Windows Update Database Corruption" Dang this makes me more panicking. Honestly, I hope this really gets fixed

Answer:Windows Update Failed To Install Latest Update

Hi, just a note on that most recent update:
Upgrading to Creators Update requires installing KB4013214

It seems like the download failed.

Given your repairs, an excellent start, I'd suggest you do this by way of basic checks:
From an admin command prompt
[Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
chkdsk C: /F
Your PC will need to restart.
Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!
Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.

Then from an admin prompt run
sfc /scannow

and post the result (not the whole log).

I would recommend you MANUALLY download the Creator's Upgrade.

Why?
- it lets you create a useful bootable medium with some repair features
- you can use it to do a future clean install or in-place upgrade
- if the upgrade fails, you can repeat it without downloading again.
Download Windows 10 ISO File - Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

Now, once you are happy with your disk and integrity of your Windows, please take this precautionary step:
Download and use Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot disk - and you will need a large external disk or similar
and create a disk image (in particular, option Windows Backup).

Then do the upgrade using the iso you have downloaded.
When you upgrade, disconnect any unnecessary peripherals, esp. wireless mouse.

If you end up with an unbootable PC you can then restore it exactly as it was.

Hello all!

This is my first post to this forum and, I must say, after perusing a few posts I'm excited to post my question. It looks like this is a great community.

I recently reformatted my computer due to intermittent crashes during resource intensive application sessions. The crashes have continued with decreased frequency (and make me suspect my PSU). However, my computer crashed during one of the first lengthy rounds of update installations after the reformat and I suspect that crash may have damaged a Windows Update installation. Since then I have always had an "updates available" prompt and the update fails each time it tries to run.

I think I have narrowed it down to a single update that is not correctly installing. I think this poster was encountering the same issue, but it seemed wise to follow the forum recommendation not not try solutions posted for others.

Per the forum guidelines here are the details of my problem:

1) Used SURT and got the attached SURT results.
2) Ran SFC and got the attached results.
3) Windows Update returns error code 80246007 for file KB2836502 (see attached).
4) The compressed CBS log folder was too larger to attach to the post. You can get it here.

Any and all help is much appreciated!!

During the update process it showed an error: "ME FW Update Failed: Internal error: FWU_Buffer " - please see the photo below. Although the update failed on the Management Engine part, it still boots up and running OK. I tried couple of times to update the BIOS, and each time I got the same error.

Just installed (on a test machine) a W7 integration I built in February 2016. It was built from an original (May 2011?) SP1 ISO plus around 290 selected updates.

My aim is to see how many updates will then be on offer from MS.

After doing some research, it seemed that I should probably install several update files after running the integration. These are:
1) KB3020369 - a Servicing Stack update,
2) KB3050265 - which contains the Group Policy alteration that enables W10 to be blocked,
3) KB3138612 - which is apparently the most recent update for the Windows Client Update.

But I found I'd already included 3020369 in my integration, so I only installed 3050265 and 3138612.

However, after doing all that and getting online, Windows Update has been running for around 1 hour with no result, so maybe I need some further updates for the Windows Update Client?

Comments, please.

Answer:MSE Client Update Package - V4 failed

I got the update notice yesterday and used your first link. When I clicked the Free* download button it showed an upgrade dialog box and the upgrade went smoothly. It's possible that you may have remnants of the old version of MSE that are preventing the new version from installing. This Microsoft KB article may help.

How to manually uninstall Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0.1963 if you cannot uninstall it by using the Add or Remove Programs item

I'd use the Fix it button first and then try to reinstall MSE. Remove Avast first through Programs and Features and then run the official Avast uninstaller to remove any Avast remnants.

If the Fix it button doesn't let you reinstall MSE then I'd try the "Let me fix it myself" steps.

At my wit's end. Cannot find the right answer anywhere. I had to use restore points to get Media Center TV Pack installed on SP1. It is working pretty well. Windows update had lots of problems but finally got SP2 reloaded. Now I'm looking to get Windows Live Family Safety installed, but it requires Platform Update. I read about how this fails because of issues in Update, but the "fixes" don't do any good. I've tried using the FixIt. I've tried installing standalone Update packages, related and unrelated. I've tried the manual fix that edits the registry. I haven't seen any other suggestions, besides start all over with a new install of Vista and try to do it all in sequence the right way the first time. I'm not even sure what that would be anyway and I really don't want to start all over just to get a peripheral bit of software to work. Anyone else find the "magic key" to this problem that is not sharing it out on the Internet?

You don't delete failed updates - it just means that they didn't install at that attempt (possibly your connection got broken)
Go back to Windows Update again, check for updates again, and install ONLY the Security updates for Windows itself (not .NET, or IE etc.) , then go back and do the rest of the updates for Windows, - then do IE, and lastly do the .NET updates.

Ever since the emergence of Windows 10 upgrade updates, I've been avoiding installing most of the "Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems" updates whereas before I would install all of them without second thought.

Of course I do look through these updates to see if there's any useful ones available though most of the time it seems like they're not that important to install ASAP.
As you can see, I got quite a few of them hidden:
However when I look through the "important" updates, one of the "persistent" update is grabbing my attention: Windows Update Client for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: [insert date].

Along with this update, I'm not sure if these are important to warrant compulsory installation every time a new version of this particular update are being released. It seems like they're frequently being offered which makes me think that it really is an important update to install.

As a result do I need to install these particular updates regularly in the same way as installing security updates?

Thanks guys and I appreciate your help.

I installed the latest round of Windows updates for my Win7 x64 install and it never completed (ran for about 24 hours) so I powered off the machine. Upon restarting, it said:

So I booted off a Windows recovery disk and figured Startup Repair would fix it. Alas, after it says "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options" and asks me if I want to repair, I click "repair and restart" and it says "Failed to save startup options".

After installing SP1, I too have the permanently-running Windows Update and am not keen to leave it churning away using up one CPU core completely for an indeterminate time.

Looking around the forum I have seen several methods that have worked for others. The simplest method seems to be:
-- create a System Restore point,
-- stop the Windows Update Service (from Task Manager / Services tab / [Services] button,
-- download and install a new Windows Update Client from https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/3138612 (Mar 2016),
-- reboot.

I chose that particular WU Client as it is the latest without any new prerequisites.

After that I can then choose which further updates I want to take.

Does that sound OK? Are there any pitfalls to watch out for / things to check?

Answer:SP1 vs Windows Update Client

Hi:

AFAIK KB 3138612 was superseded by another patch.

The 3 critical ones for a new install seem to be:

3125574
3020369
3172605

Yes, if it's "stuck" in perpetual "checking for updates" or "downloading" updates, you'll need to first disable WU from services.msc (change to manual and then stop the service) and change the WU settings to "never check for updates" in the WU applet and then reboot.

That should permit those 3 patches to install.
You'll need to reboot again when done.
Then, go back to services.msc and change WU back to Automatic (delayed start) and go back to WU settings and change to "notify but do not install".
Do a manual update check and see what patches are now available....
Everything should work OK now.

MM

Answer:Many failed update on history windows failed to configure startup

Hello smeraldan and welcome to Seven Forums.

My usual disclaimer: I'm not an expert at anything. Sometimes malware can prevent Windows Updates from installing. Run a full scan with your personal anti-malware suite. Then use the free Malwarebytes to run another full scan. (No anti-malware product is 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it.)

Malwarebytes

Another possible problem is if system files became damaged or corrupt. I'd run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You could also try running the System Update Readiness Tool if you haven't already done so.

System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008

Try installing the updates again, but this time just do a few at a time (maybe only 5 or so.) Keep track of the KB numbers. Start with the critical updates, then the important, and save the optional for last. If a group of 5 installs OK go on to the next group. If any group fails to install you'll know which group to uninstall. Try installing just one update at a time. If they install OK go on to the next group. Otherwise just ignore the problem update(s) for the time being and continue installing in groups of 5.

Answer:Bluetooth driver update failed on Windows Update - driver from lenovo.com wiped C drive

Answer:Vista Windows Updates error 0x80072efd

Hi Grace. . .

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista Support.

I took the liberty of moving your post from the other similar thread so you can be sure that all replies herein pertain to your system and no one else's.

The Windows Updates error 0x80072efd means that your system is not properly connecting with the Microsoft Updates site or that it cannot complete downloads as it needs to.

One cause can be your Internet connection, but more than likely it is related to your anti-virus program and the existence of a 3rd party (non-Microsoft) Firewall. What a/v product(s) do you have installed and are you using the Windows Firewall &/or any other one?

Is your system updated with Vista SP1?

Regards. . .

After last patching tuesday, my Livemail has not worked in Windows Live Mail. I get this error: 0x80072EFD

I have googled it, and it shows up with errortrapping on Windows update!! But Windows update is working just fine, only I can't use my Microsoft email account in Microsofts Windows Live Mail. My Gmail is working fine in Windows Live Mail, so why not my livemail account?
Anybody got a hint to a solution?

In amongst today's round of updates was KB3075853
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3075853

The details of what these updates do is never specified.

Specifically, I would like to know whether these are a 'back-door' for future W10 compatibility checks and upgrades. I haven't installed this update, and unless I can be 100% certain it isn't W10 related then I shall keep it hidden.

Answer:What exactly are 'Windows Update Client' Updates for ?

The windows update client is the actual windows update program itself.

Every so often Microsoft will issue an update to the update system based on the feedback and telemetry they receive from users who have update failures, or to patch possible vunrabilities.

I am trying to avoid the issue where Windows Update hangs at downloading 0%. For me, clearly the latest version of the client is still hanging. None of the posted solutions seem to work for me. See my other post: Another thread about Windows Update stuck at Downloading 0%

I have been looking through the post about 'How to Remove Windows 10 Upgrade Updates. In one post Brds7t7 posts the list of updates to avoid (which I do, vigorously):

Windows 10 Update List

My Question: How do I install the older versions of the update client so I can test them on my system. What is the oldest version I can install before I am forced to update to the latest client by Windows Update?

Answer:How do I backdate Windows Update client.

Hi Doc,
The latest version of the WU agent is installed during the SP1 update.
and to stop W10 suggest you use this prog.
Download GWX Control Panel 1.7.4.1

Hi,
We are having problems with some clients not updating from our wsus server. They come up with error '0x80072ee2'. With most clients, they will eventually start working and once they have started, there seems to be no further problem.

But i have one particular client that just fails over and over again. I have been able to run a check against Microsofts own server once or twice, but even that often fails.

On our wsus server, it is in the list of clients but its status is 'Not yet reported'.

There is nothing out of the ordinary about this machine. Below is a section from the windowsupdate.log

Which appears to suggest some sort of proxy failure, but we dont use a proxy.

Hi,
I am running Windows 10 on my laptop and after a windows update yesterday afternoon my secondary display now is unable to be detected (it was working before the update). I restarted my computer, I have checked the device drivers and it says that the latest version is installed and have checked the cables connecting the computer to the secondary display. Is there any other ways I can try and fix this problem?

I am trying to locate some possible driver or file problems and came across, what maybe an interesting question.

I found that I have a lot of left over files sitting in local disk C:, after I have un-installed an Iomega Zip program,

I decided to delete these and was stopped by a message that some of the files may be used by other programs.

If in the case in such cases deletions like this occur, and files, drivers, etc are missing. . . Does the Windows updating service detect this ?

Answer:Will Windows Update Detect Missing Files ?

Nope. Windows Updates only provides files created for glitches, bugs, and security updates. I'm afraid it's not as personalized as it would appear to be.It's dangerous to delete files from the root (C:) and Windows directories if you don't know exactly what you're doing. I've got a bookmark for a site that tells you what lots of files do. I'll see if I can find it and get back to you. Generally speaking, unless the files are humongous or seem to be interfering with your OS or other applications, I'd suggest you not spend a lot of time working on deleting them.Heheheh ... I'm beginning to think that you're an overtweaker, like me! At least you have the sense to ask about something before you do it, unlike me.
