Order of installing SP3 and Windows Updates

Question: Order of installing SP3 and Windows Updates

I have delayed upgrading to SP3 but I have been installing the subsequent XP security updates. I am now about to install SP3 but it has occurred to me, will I have any problems if I install SP3 on top of the Windows updates that came out after SP3?

Preferred Solution: Order of installing SP3 and Windows Updates

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: Order of installing SP3 and Windows Updates

You shouldn't have any problems installing SP3. I recently downloaded SP3 myself. I didn't have any problems.

When you download something like SP3 it will replace files, if it needs to, to make the proper install.

Hey everyone,

I'm preparing for a Windows 7 slip stream install using RT 7 Lite following this tutorial:
Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 into a Installation DVD or ISO File

Does anyone who has experience with this know if there's a required order to applying the updates on the slip stream?

Another tutorial mentions that another program, NTLite, will apply the updates in the preferred order:
https://www.raymond.cc/blog/create-a...-install-disc/

Is this the same case for RT 7 Lite or even something to be concerned about?

Thanks in advance

Answer:Windows 7 Slipstream - Order to applying updates?

There are limitations on using a slipstreamed Win7 installer for Repair Install and certain other uses, so if at all possible I'd find a download w/SP1 following the suggestions in Step 1 of Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

Hello,

Sorry to post a new thread but the old one " [Tecra A10 - Installation order for XP|http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=45611] " being closed and my question relates to the same topic.

I got hold of a Tecra A10 PTSB0A-002001 and I would like to install XP SP3 on it so the order in which to install Toshiba additionnal drivers is very useful. Thank you Ivan25 for that information.

Toshiba also include a Java Runtime Environment 2 package which I was planning to replace by a JSE 7. I would like to know in which order it has to be installed?

Furthermore, after installing XP SP3 there are still hundreds of Windows updates to apply, should those Windows updates be installed straight after XP SP3 setup or after Toshiba drivers?

Thank you in advance for your help

Cheers
Eric

Answer:Tecra A10 - Installation order for XP, additional Windows updates and JRE

Java Runtime Environment 2 package can be installed after installation of all common drivers and tools? Java Runtime Environment isn?t essential part if it comes to install other drivers and tools and therefore it?s not very important when the package would be installed.

You have to install all the Win XP updates after the installation of Toshiba drivers and utilities.
During the update installation, the notebook needs to be rebooted several times and the whole procedure would take some time?

However, from my point of few, Win XP isn?t the best choice now since the Microsoft does not provide any support for this system now?

Wondering if there are any sites or recommendations you folks would have regarding the correct install order of Windows Updates, for 98 and XP. I would also like to be able to download all of those updates for safe-keeping on a USB hard drive which I could take to clients on repairs. What are your recommendations? I seem to find no clear-cut information on how to install these, and in what order, and which ones are THE most-important to install in order to not get hacked while online. The dumb thing I did the other day was reinstall XP on a customer's computer, and XP didn't discover his NIC properly. Used a modem to access the 'net to get the driver, and would you believe, in that amount of time, his comp was infected with the Welchia virus. So you can see my quandry...

thanks in advance

I have been able to "successfully" boot the CD Drive into UEFI mode to install Windows 10 onto my new 4TB SSHD, but I run into the error were it stats that the partitions are not in the recommended order, when the ONLY partitions on the disk are the primary and the "protective MBR" before it at slot 0.

Now, when I am in windows for the first time everything seems fine, but as soon as I restart after doing basic setup, I run into an issue where I cannot browse any partitions (I try to open "This PC", but it acts like it is indexing indefinitely and I never see the drive listing).

It looks like Windows 10 may not be appropriately setting the order for the partitions. I included a screenshot of the setup below.

Is this incorrect? How would I be able to correct the issue?

At the moment I left my original installation on my 1TB HHD intact, so that I can still have an operating PC, and find out some info on this.

I literally never heard of GPT (or at least remember it) before a couple days ago.

Answer:Installing Windows 10 on GPT disk, partitions not in correct order?

Are you trying to do a clean install of Windows 10 or an upgrade? If a clean install, then boot from the Windows 10 USB or DVD and select the Custom install option. Delete all the partitions on the drive, then select the unallocated space to install to.

Hi,

To give you some back story, I built my computer the end of August 2012. Ran Smoothly. I decided to get a 60 gig SSD to be the partition that stored Windows. I didnt have much stored on the Main HD so I deleted my original 2TB HD and tried installing on the SSD... found that the SSD was bad and sent it back. Decided just to stick with the 2TB HD. Had some issues installing windows back onto the HD as it would just hang up. Finally managed to get windows installed, had some "Not genuine" issues but that resolved after multiple restarts. That brings me to where I am at today and I feel as though the system has been getting worse. I would normally be fine with just a clean install but with all the issues I had with that initially I am very skeptical of trying it again. I have 5 important updates and 7 optional updates all of which do not install. The Installer just sits on Downloading updates and I have left it overnight with still no result. I am not sure if this is even my main issue but I am beyond the point of figuring it out myself so any help would be appreciated

I downloaded the System Readiness Tool and it Ran. I tried running the sfc /scannow in Admin cmd prompt mode and get a "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation" I attached my CBS file. Any help you could give or guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows Updates Not Installing : Error Unknown (Sits on Installing)

Hello and welcome Faticus just as matter of interest why did you give up on the SSD? was not it under warranty?

That is heck of a drive to be installing on mate just how did you prepare it for the install?

You can run a chkdsk in Windows too > My Computer > right click on the drive > Properties > Tools > Check now - then follow the points in my pic.
You then reboot and it will start a chkdsk (in DOS).

Hello All,

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

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

PROBLEM:

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

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

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

Stumped, stumped and stumped...

The Windows Photo Viewer will not display photos in the order they are sorted by Windows Explorer.
This is not referring to the slide show feature, just the forward and back arrows.
The only order pictures can be viewed is by name despite Windows Explorer being set at view by date, ascending.
I have repaired Microsoft Live Essentials, uninstalled and reinstalled but the issue remains.
This is also not an issue with photo tags or photo names.

Answer:Windows Photo Viewer; sorting order not the same as view order

Hi!

I upgraded to Windows 10 recently as well, I have the same problem and I also have a solution. However, I do not know, if it is ideal. :-)

What is obviously missing is an entry in the registry called DropTarget. This entry tells Windows Photo Viewer to display the images in the sorting order of the folder Photo Viewer got called from.

Non-solution:
I saw that at least in my registry there is a DropTarget defined in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget. From the name of the key and from reading the docs this looks as if it would be applied to all calls to this program, but -if that actually is the case- for me this entry does not work. It has been there (at least) after my Windows 10 upgrade, also the "Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}" seems to be fine, but it does not do the job.

Solution:
For me, this problem was present for jpg and png files, but not for bmp, dib, gif, jfif and what else can be opened with Windows Photo Viewer. To fix this, I have added the following to the Windows Registry:

Do Vista updates need to be downloaded in a certain order? I just got a new laptop and it needed a variety of Win updates to be dowloaded right away (Vista Home Premium SP1 on an HP laptop, 3 gig ram, 1.83 gH processor, 250mb HD). Some were recommended, some were critical and some optional. They were dated from 2007 through the present.

I just began the download and after it was over, my computer would no longer cold boot. It hung during the startup and had to be restared in order to get it to load.

It was suggested that the updates may have been downloaded or installed in the "wrong order" causing the glitch. I can't find anything about this at MS.

I exchanged that computer for a new one yesterday - it was only 4 days old - and haven't gotten any updates for the new "new" one yet.

My questions - should I get these in any order? Are critical more important to do first - or is the actual date of the update release the important factor. Or should I do them one at a time and check each to see if there was a problem with it. I don't want to run into the issue again if it was the cause of the lock-up.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!
TN
 

Answer:Order for downloading Win updates?

Do only the "critical" ones and then do SP1. The critical ones may need to be done in groups of about 6-8 at a time, starting with the oldest or the Top of the listing.

The others are based on different hardware and software that MAY be on the machine.
For any drivers I would be going the OEM site, for updates.

As for the recommended ones, you need to have a look at each one to see if it applies to you and your machine.

I realize this isn't a major problem, but it's something that irks me and I was wondering if it was possible to fix.

I recently reset my laptop back to factory setting and before that I could've sworn that the XP updates I installed were listed in the Add/Remove Program list in alphabetical/numerical order. It made it easy to see which updates I installed.

I reinstalled the patches and at first they were listed in order, but suddenly the order just randomly changed. My list is set to sort by name, but it doesn't have any effect on Windows Program Updates list. I installed everything going from oldest to newest so it should've stayed in order, but it didn't.

Is there anyway to get it back in order?

I have the following Important (including Recommended) Windows Updates and have a few questions before I start.

Yes, I know some of them are a bit old. I will probably not bother with the "Malicious Software Removal Tool" and would do SP1 last.

(a) should I do the Updates in any particular order?
(b) and, one at a time or several?
(c) are any likely to be problematic?
( d ) don't some of those .NET framework ones supersede others or does WU sort that out?
(e) will I get a load more appearing in the list after doing these?

Answer:What order of Updates, and one at a time?

Here is one opinion: Advice please on best way to install updates for Windows 7

I usually let Windows install whatever it has selected. Sometimes the WU process will get things out of order and that causes updates to fail. No big deal, those failing updates should install in subsequent attempts.

The two .NET updates that you highlighted patch different things.

Any help with these issues is greatly apprecieated

Answer:Windows Updates not installing

At the outset you could seek the help of the person who installed Windows 7. That said the other way out is to reinstall Windows 7 with your original genuine DVD yourself.

But before you do that, please check that the installed copy of Windows 7 is genuine. If you find that it is genuine then please make the downloading and installation of the updates automatic. Wait for a day or two and check if all the updates are installed. If yes then leave the settings as they are and take no further action except keep using the computer normally.

If not then please reinstall Windows as suggested in the opening para.

Would any of you advise turning off one's antivirus prior to installing a big Windows update, such as a service pack or the big .NET 3.5 SP1 update that Windows is now recommending as a "high priority" update for some computer users? I'm using AVG free 8. (Not the latest .233 build just yet...I'll tackle that after the .NET thing is done! The .NET is a 248 Mb download, so quite a job in itself.)

Answer:Installing Windows updates with AV on?

Generally no, and given that this is a genuine Microsoft product, no need. Anti-virus applications are detection tools and seldom impede downloading and installing software unless bugs or threats are found.

hello,
I am having some issues with windows update. The last couple weeks every time i shut down my laptop, there is a message in the screen " installing updates 1/1". I must let you know that in the past i always had my laptop on sleep mode, as a result i missed some updates. Moreover, sometimes because i was in a hurry despite the fact that windows mentioned that i must not power off the laptop when installing updates, i did.

Thank you for your time and patience

I'm trying to install some Windows updates but they just won't install. All it says is that some updates could not be installed and it lists the updates. Just for reference, the updates are:

Cumulative Security Update for ActiveX Killbits for Windows XP (KB950760)
Security Update for Windows XP with Windows Media Format Runtime 9.5 (KB923689)
Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 2.0 (KB928365)

Security Update for Windows XP with Windows Media Format Runtime 9.5 and 11 (KB941569)

Security Update for Windows XP (KB951698)
Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP (KB950759)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB951376)

Yes, this is a legit version and it is activated. I had no problem installing updates until a couple of weeks ago. Any suggestions?

The hack that I am I'd system restore before that point. There's probably a smarter more elaborate way of doing things. When you do restore it will try to update again I think.

Let's say that you had 15 updates and you install 5 of them (but you find a way to not restart).

Then you install 5 more and put off restarting.

Then you install the final 5 - then restart.

That is the same thing as just selecting all 15 to be installed all at once. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)

I know that lots of people suggest doing updates in small chunks... but I've not had any issues letting MS manage the updates. Maybe it because most of my experience with doing a lot of updates is within a VM.

As far as allowing more updates without restarting: I was able to do that by changing some registry values, but let's not post "solutions" like that for the general public to play with. I did my testing inside a virtual machine where there was nothing to lose.

I have the updates for WinXP SP2 already downloaded on my PC. Is there a way to install them with having to run each .exe individually? Can I copy them to the same folder that Automatic Updates uses, then enable Automatic Updates, then when I shut down, will it give me the option to install them? Or is there another way to do this- maybe write a batch file that says something like "run all the .exe files in this folder and reboot when finished". I've never written a batch file so, if that's the way to go, some help will be appreciated.

Gudday all
A few weeks ago I noticed 2 issues with my Windows XP Home.
1. The Window firewall warning comes up that the firewall wall is turned off despite being turned on when going to it. Eventually (5-7 mins) the warning disappears. This occurs everytime we turn the computer on.
2. We have 6 updates that always come up as needing to be installed but when we try to install the updates the computer wanders of to do it. Eventually it returns the message that these updates could not be installed.
The updates areKB975958
KB972580
KB973443
KB734475
KB974554
KB973705
If there are extra updates (i.e. > these six) the extra ones are installed successfully.
I have tried a few times to install these updates.
The computer is a desktop with XP SP3.
I also have a latop with XP Pro SP3 but have not noticed all of these issues.

I have the setting of 'Download updates, but let me choose when to install them'.

Is there anywhere in Windows that might suggest why these updates are not being installed?
I have had a look at Microsoft support pages but a search revealed nothing (I was not really sure how to phrase the question which might have make the search next to impossible).

Has anyone had this problem or similar and any suggestions? A virus has crossed my mind.

Hi All..

I'm not sure if I'm in the right catagory for this question. Slap my hands if I am!I'm far from being a computer Guru, more or less a computer Dork I'm using Win XP and ie explorer. I under stand what Win updates are, OK! But am concerned about updating to service Pak 3, because I have heard about a lot of problems with it and folks having to do a complete re install after updating, etc, I have had a icon in my task that keeps popping up and saying, Up dates are ready for your computer.Click icon to install these updates.

I have a fear that one of them may be Service Pak 3, and I don't want to install it at this time. I'm also a afraid that it will start an Automaitc install of the updates.I do have Service Pak 3 that I ordered from MS, but don't want to mess with it at this time either.

My question is..?Is there a way I can find out just what updates they before getting stuck with a Auto install I can't stop if I click on the icon??? As told by others I have went to Control Panel, and opened WIn updates, and it says I have 2 updates ready for install, but it doesn't say what they are. Am open for any advice or Help how I find out what updates they are before installing them..

Thanks Anyone..

Hi all, I have recently been put in charge of formatting all the laptops at work before they go back on sale.

One thing that I have found frustrating is installing the drivers. I have had some laptops sitting for around 4-5 hours, just simply updating the system bit by bit, and I was wondering if there is a way to just download all the drivers at once, and do a mass install.

Doing this on 7 or 8 laptops is painful

Thanks for any help in advance :)

Answer:Installing all Windows 7 updates ate once

If they are all the same drivers or you know which ones you need, then just download them onto a Flash or DVD and then copy them onto their respective machines.

It's the downloading bit that is time consuming so by doing it that way, you only need to download them once - although video drivers can take some time installing unless you choose the express option.

On 4/13, I downloaded and successfully installed 13 windows security updates. On 4/16, I thought I would run a Disk Cleanup since it had been a while. On 4/17, I received notice that 2 important windows upates (3019978 & 3075220) were ready to download and install. After trying to do the install, they both failed. Many times I tried to no avail. I then thought maybe the disk cleanup removed some file I needed for this process. I then ran a system restore back to 4/13 and prior to the disk cleanup. It took about an hour for that process to complete but it did and now system runs a little slower but it runs. Unfortunately, the system restore did not solve the update install problem. They still fail and I am in a loop now where they keep showing up and asking to be installed before shutdown. I have tried a few fixes on my own: Services -- where you reset the update services process. No deal. Microsoft FixIt tool. No deal. Troubleshoot problems - no deal. Would taking it back to prior 4/13 with system restore do any good? Could some help be offered for this dilemma?? Thank you.MWB premium and Avast Free anti-virus - also Malware anti-exploit free

Hello,
I know this topic has been posted before and I have tried most of the suggested solutions with no success.
I resorted to restoring my PC back to it,s factory settings and for 10 days it downloaded and installed the win7 updates and then stopped doing so. I used the club FixWU program to no avail as it still does not work. Running Belarc Advisor indicates that certain important updates are missing. As Microsoft have now finished their support for Win7 does this mean that the updates are no longer accessible to download. If so is there a dispositery somewhere where they are held and can be downloaded and manually installed?
Many thanks for taking the time to read this.

Sid.

My updates are set to check and install every day at 3:00AM. I've just noticed recently that when I get on in the mornings that I have a pop up saying that updates to windows 7 had failed to install. I ignored it figuring my internet just wasn't staying connected but the last few days when I've turned it off it is powering down forever because its' installing updates or trying tp. Then when it re-starts back up; it says all updates have failed so it is reprogramming and to not unplug or power down. So today I opened up the update file and found that it has been failing to update anything for over a year. Sporadically I see one that has succeeded to install here and there but most of them are all failed. As of right now I have the following updates waiting to be installed:

Answer:Windows 7 not installing updates

I think the 0300 bit is a Microsoft fetish, I know I am something of a night bird, but even my computer is seldom on at 0300 local.
 
I think you are going to have to do these updates manually. Start by going into 'Windows Updates' and changing the setting from 'Install automatically' to 'Notify when updates are ready' then 'Check for updates' and stand back !
 
After a few minutes, you will get the message 'Updates are ready for your computer'. MS splits these into 'Important' and 'Optional' categories. You can select all of them, or just some of them, then click 'Install updates' and the downloading and installation process will go on in the background - you can be doing other work while this happens. If you are using the internet, you will notice that it's performance is reduced, thihs is because the updates are using some of your bandwidth.
 
When the installation is finished, you will get one of three messages - (1) The updates were successful, or (2) Windows needs to restart, or (3) The updates failed.
 
For (1), no further action required. For (2) just re-boot the computer. For (3), go back to 'Check for updates' and select say 10 or 15 at a time. If you then get a batch fail to install properly, it is easier and less time consuming to work out which one is causing the problem.
 
I have my updates permanently set 'Notify but don't install'
 
Hope that helps,

I saw a post by Noel where he told the OP to install by Date, not KB# which reminded me of a question I've had for quite some time. Are updates generally listed in order of 'Importance' or 'Date' or what?

Right now I'm down to 6 updates left to do. They're all .NET Framework from the 7/9/13 list of updates & in clicking on the "More info button" they're all 7/9 & there are 4 listed for 3.5.1, then 2 listed for 4. I've read something about it's best to install these type one at a time, is that true? If so, that's 6 re-boots in a row if I were to do them all now which I kinda thought about since it's already 2 weeks past Patch Tuesday. I'm also assuming that all the Framework 3.5.1 should be done before the Framework 4.

Thanks.

Answer:Installation order of list of updates

The KB Number is generated at the start of a project - and as a results bears only some resemblance to the order in which patches are released, since some patches take longer to develop, test and approve, than others.

I generally do .NET update in increasing order by version, then date
e.g for XP, do all v1.1 then v2/3.5 - for Win7, all 3.5, then 4.5 (I've uninstalled 4.0, as it seemed always to create more problems than any other version)

Hello everyone,
I reinstalled XP on a pc yesterday and am having some problems with Windows Updates.

My question is two fold:
1. Is there a specific order in which we can update an XP machine without problems (generally)?
2. Is it possible to create a DVD with an update package so we don't have to connect to the Windows Update website?

I tried to download and install IE8 to make the update process easier, but that required another update, but I was unable to get that from the Update site.

Answer:Order of updates for XP clean install

Hi run windows update it will download things as it needs them,you can get the service packs

I had been hesitant to upgrade to IE8 & then SP2 but now realize that I have to install them and it's been long enough since their initial release -- but I want to run a few things past the experts on this site before I do.

Since IE8 showed up on the WU list on 5/7/09, I've ignored it (not hidden it), turned off automatic installs (to avoid WU installing IE8) and not installed any updates save Windows Defender definition updates (but nothing new showed up in the WU list anyway -- only SP2 when IE8 is hidden).

These are the most recent updates via WU that have been installed on my system (ignoring Windows Defender Definition updates):

6/4/09 Update for Windows Vista (KB955430)*
5/13/09 Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - May 2009 (KB890830)*

Answer:In What Order Should I Install These Updates (includes IE8 & SP2)

Hello Severed, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I would recommend to install IE8 first, then the SP2 standalone afterwards. Next, check and install any remaining Windows Updates a few at a time to avoid a possible conflict with them during a restart.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

On my 4 month old netbook running XP Home (2002) SP3, haven't had any problems installing Windows updates until KB978380 and KB972581, which could not be installed. I went to the Windows Update site and manually downloaded the exe files to my desktop to install, but neither one will work, giving the message "The detection failed, this can be due to a corrupted installation database."

I've tried clearing my temp files and my C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder, as well as verifying genuine Windows software, and still get the same message. Any ideas?

Answer:Trouble installing Windows updates

I read your log where Gringo assisted you and see you have turned Windows Updates on as suggested. That would have been the first item I would have asked you to check.

"The detection failed, this can be due to a corrupted installation database."




I am not sure what the meaning is of the quoted passage from your initial post, but it would not hurt for you to run sfc /scannow to make sure you have no missing or corrupt .dll files within your Operating System. This action should be part of your monthly maintenance to keep you computer running well.

In case you need help. When replying click on the icon shaped like a paperclip (to attach) browse to the dump file, click upload and close when done.

I set up windows to automatically install updates, and I don't want to change that.

When I'm in a hurry to restart or shutdown my PC and I only see "Shut down installing updates" and "Restart installing updates", is there some way to do it bypassing the update?

I've tried command line: shutdown /s but it doesn't work (it updates before shutting down).
Likewise, Alt+F4 (from the desktop) only offers shutting down or restarting and updating.
Neiter logging out and then choosing to shut down (your only choice is also to update and shutdown/restart).

Hi everyone

I recently did a factory boot of my system so of course upon the first or second restart I was bombarded with about 140 windows updates! Maybe it's just me and my predisposed distrust for windows update, but my comp seems to be moving slightly slower now, but that isn't the issue right now.

Does anyone know how to tell when the recommended windows updates are a good idea to install? I usually just install the recommended ones. I'm doing this solely on the fact that the machine is telling me to since I don't know how to judge whether or not an update is needed. I would like to know if anyone has some sort of criteria before they accept a windows update.

Thanks!

Answer:When are windows updates worth installing?

I am going to give you the correct answer.

I am not going to give you the answer you want to hear.

First, Win 7 is NOT eXPired.

Second, carry out the following procedure perfectly.

UPDATING YOUR WIN 7
1. ASSURE THAT YOU RECEIVE ALL UPDATES
WIN | type WINDOWS UPDATE | ENTER |
Change settings (left-hand column) |
checkmark all four of the boxes | OK button

Approve any dialog boxes presented. Let Windows install any update features.

WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

2. INSTALL CRITICAL UPDATES
Check for Updates (left-hand column)
Install ALL critical updates.
Restart your computer (even if not prompted)

Repeat this procedure until there are no more critical updates.

DO NOT TRUST the “Windows is up to date” in center of dialog. until you see that TWICE IN A ROW!

3. INSTALL IMPORTANT UPDATES
Use the “critical update” procedure until all important updates are installed.

4. INSTALL OPTIONAL UPDATES
Use the “critical update” procedure until all optional updates are installed.

Under Optional updates you will be presented with a list of about 34 language updates.
You can hide those updates so that aren't continually notified of those updates. When you click on 34 optional updates are available, then you
a) highlight all of the language updates,
b) right-click anywhere in the highlighted list.
c) click on Hide Updates,
d) OK button.
UPDATE GOLDEN RULES
Install ALL, yes, ALL updates.

Hi,
Last night I received a message that Windows needed to download updates. There were seven of them, so I clicked on install. After downloading it said it had to restart to complete the installation. I then got the screen saying "Configuring Windows. Do Not Turn Off Your Computer." The little circle kept spinning for about a half hour. I saw that the HD light didn't come on at all, so I assumed it had locked up. I had to press and hold the power button to get it to reboot, and after telling me Windows did not shut down normally, it started up and appeared to complete the update installation.

I checked the Update History and most of the updates said "Successful" but a few said "Pending".
I have had this lockup happen before, but usually it installs with no problem. What can I do? What does Pending mean? I am not tech oriented. I have Win 7 - 64 bt - Service Pack 1. Thanks. Tom

Hi everyone,

I'm having some problems with the Windows Automatic updates. For a while I noticed that everyday before I shut down my laptop, windows would install 8 updates. It would do 8 updates each and every day, and I've now noticed that it's the same updates that keep failing to install.
I haven't been able to install any updates since 11th Feb, EXCEPT one Windows Defender update. The last update to successfully install (apart from this odd one Defender update) was also a Defender update.
I have 49 important updates to install, the first one being "Cumulative Security Update for ActiveX Killbits for Windows Vista KB980195". I can list them all if you need them.

I can download them all ok, but cannot install. When the "installation" has finished, the screen says:

Updates were installed successfully
Updates were installed: 24th Feb 2011 at 00:00 Failed

If you go into View Update History, it will also say Failed. The update will remain on the list of updates to be installed. Why would it say it is both successful AND failed??

I have done the sfc / scannow and it has not reported any errors. I have also downloaded and run the System Readiness Tool and this has not fixed the issue. I've added *microsoft.com to the trusted sites in Internet Explorer, as I've heard that this fixed the problem for some people. I've cleaned/fixed the registry and still it doesn't work.

Hello there, I've been having a problem with two updates, for a long time. I've been ignoring them for a long time (bad idea, I know), but it's gotten to the point where it's preventing me from installing some programs.

Here is a pic of my recent update history.



As you can see, the two problem updates are:

Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package (KB2538243)

and

Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2556532)


The second is saying it's successful, but it keeps trying to install, so it's obviously not successful...

As for the first one, that's the one I've been trying to fix.

have windows XP Pro with service pack 2 installed on my pc. I have recently tried installing new antivirus software without any success. When I went to get the lastest windows system updates (some 38 of them!), there was only 2 that installed and all the others failed. I downloaded service pack 3 as it had all the updates but it also failed to unpack and install.

I believe there is obviously something wrong with the operating system and the updates which has not allowed me to install anything. I have looked at the XP installation CD and help files. There are a couple of options open to me including a reinstall of the operating system. I cautious on doing this as I dont want to loose any of the existing programs and files on my computer.

Wondering if anyone else has come across this problem and what the best solution would be.

Thank you
 

Answer:Problem installing windows updates

Try this:
1) Make sure you have admin privileges.
2)Insert O/S disc.
3)Cancel or press no, if you have the autorun setting on.
4)Hit start->Run->type "sfc /scannow"

It will scan your OS if any of your system files has changed anyway and since you have the windows CD in the CD drive it will copy the oem files from the cd to fix the problem.

It will take sometimes, so do it when you have time to kill, if it prompts you, just keep clicking retry.

Now try to download and reinstall the updates now.

I now have an issue with installing windows updates. Initially with KB3035490 and KB3023224. This has now been resolved after cleaning up my .NET framework.

I then tried to install update KB982670 which failed.

Greetings,

I have been trying to solve this issue on my own for months now, and i have gotten to the point that i believe the only thing i can do to correct this issue is to wipe my system clean and reinstall Windows 8.1(64bit). I hope someone here can help.

The 2 updates i am having issues with are the following:

KB2990967 and KB3035583

Both updates while using Windows Updates show that they install successfully, but they do not actually install. Windows Update then shows the updates again and allows me to attempt to install them again. The updates never show up in Add/Remove as Installed Updates.

Attempting to install KB2990967 manually says that it installs without issue and with no errors in Windows Setup Logs, but again, doesn't add the update to Add/Remove and any attempt to reinstall it manually allows the install to attempt instead of returning the normal error for already installed updates.

I'm left to think the issue is related to corruption in my system registry, either an incorrect GUID or a permissions issue.

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
and
sfc /scannow

have been ran multiple times on this system.

SFC currently doesn't find any integrity violations, although it had in the past and repaired them.
DISM always reports "The restore operation completed successfully. The component store corruption was repaired.
The operation completed successfully."

Answer:2 Windows Updates Not Installing, No errors

Unless you plan on installing Windows 10 on this machine, you don't need KB3035583 - simply Hide it.
KB2990967 is related to OneDrive (for Windows 8.x only!) - the simplest fix is probably to uninstall OneDrive, and then reinstall it from a fresh download.

Having trouble with installing Windows Updates.
 
After reinstalling Windows 7 Home Edition. I manually run Windows Updates until SP1 is installed.
 
The very next update is Windows Update Agent 7.6.760.320. After I install the WUA, I check for updates, but it seems to never stop looking. Hours go by and nothing.
 
This is where the problem starts. Checking Task Manager, Performance Tab, I find my Memory is maxed out and the CPU is at 25% to 35 %. I only have 4GB of Ram installed. Even when I shutdown the computer and restart my Computer,  the Windows Update Agent continues to run.
 
I did run SFC /scannow, but nothing was found.
 
I read something about if you install Windows Update Client, June or July, 2016. It will install over the top of the old WUA. However, I tried doing that and was not able to get it to install.
 
Am I doing something wrong? Forgetting to possibily set Windows to stop looking for updates first, or is it something else.
 
Looking for a solution to get the Windows Updates installed.
 
Thanks, for any help.

I have windows XP Pro with service pack 2 installed on my pc. I have recently tried installing new antivirus software without any success. When I went to get the lastest windows system updates (some 38 of them!), there was only 2 that installed and all the others failed. I downloaded service pack 3 as it had all the updates but it also failed to unpack and install.

I believe there is obviously something wrong with the operating system and the updates which has not allowed me to install anything. I have looked at the XP installation CD and help files. There are a couple of options open to me including a reinstall of the operating system. I cautious on doing this as I dont want to loose any of the existing programs and files on my computer.

Wondering if anyone else has come across this problem and what the best solution would be.

Thank you

Hello. I have a question for you regarding and Windows Updates with Windows 7. I notice I am having problems with Windows Update repeatedly (not/never ending) trying to re-install the same Windows Updates when I click on "Check for updates". The updates are:1. Security Update for Windows 7 (KB977165)2. Security Update for Windows 7 (KB981852) These updates are The Windows updates shows they were 'successful' under "View Update History" under "Windows Update". Interestingly in "Uninstall an update" under "Programs and Features", there are no Windows updates listed at all. Hmmm...Maybe this can help... ...recently, I installed more memory that triggered a Windows 7 activation again. Just prior to the memory installation, I had the latest Windows Updates all installed at the time. Now, it seems the Windows Update lists seem to have been reset in some way after the reactivation. Does this help at all? Any ideas or reasons what is going on? Any solutions??? Please help! If you need any further input, please reply. I will provide it for you to assist in finding the reason and potential solutions. Thank you!
