Data used to automatically download upgrade KB3087985

Q: Data used to automatically download upgrade KB3087985

I was doing routine computer work on the evening of 8/19/15 when I started getting warnings from Verizon Wireless about my JetPack data utilization. (I am on a 5GB/month plan, and 3.55+GB were used in that one evening.)

The tech at Verizon said the usage occurred in the "Communications and Device Services," which includes Windows updates and stuff I don't use (such as Skype). My computer's update history shows only one update on 8-19-15, and that is

"Security Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3087985).
Could that update possibly have used 3.55 GB of my data allowance? What is the maximum it could have used?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was downloading the upgrade to Windows 8.1 Pro from Windows 8 Pro.

When I was at 40% download, my internet connection lost. So I waited, but it automatically restarted from 0%. What the hell? I downloaded that 40% by giving 10 hours of time. Now I have to start again from 0%. Assume I'll start downloading again and if this
time it will fail at 90%. So What should i do for complete the download

I'm trying to download updates through Windows Update, it shows that I have 139 important updates, and 40 optional ones. I selected them and clicked the install button but it got stuck at "Downloading updates (0 kb total, 0% complete)". I cancelled and retried choosing only 24 important updates and the same happened. I tried the check for updates option but it also keeps checking forever.
I also tried downloading updates from Microsoft Download Center but when I try to install them it hangs on "searching for updates on this computer".
I already ran the Microsoft Fix It tool, disabled my anti-virus and firewall, but nothing works.
I cannot install the SURT because it also keeps searching for updates.

I need to update so I can upgrade to Windows 10 - the setup also got stuck while checking for updates, so I was hoping that updating beforehand would do the trick.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem are appreciated.

Hello All,

First of all, I have created New Worksheet & saved as "MAIN" in different location. I have the sub-ordinates of 15 members, who work on their excel sheet with different location.

Here, i would like to copy some selected contents or copy several columns from their worksheet to the "MAIN" worksheet. I used to do it manually. Now, my question is that is there any other way to sort this automatically?

I had tried by applying some formulas, but it worked only for a single person. But i required for all 15 members data to be copied at once.

Thanks,

Hi all,

I have a monthly report that has a certain column (always column BF) that contains the numbers 1-5, either singly or in any combination thereof. I have to copy this into 5 columns (BQ through BU) and I want those columns titled Q2 - 1, Q2 - 2, Q2 - 3, Q2 - 4 and Q2 - 5.
I need all the 1s in Q2 - 1, all the 2s in Q2 - 2 and so on.
Since the number of items in each cell varies, (there is no 1, , 3,4, , with blanks for non-existing numbers, rather one cell may have 2 and the one below it may have 1,3,5) is there a macro or a formula that would quickly copy every item into the right column?
It isn't vital, I suppose, I can copy, sort and cut and paste, but I would like to save the time....

Hello,

My father has Verizon DSL for his ISP. He uses AOL 9.0 for email and AOL now lets users read their AOL email using Outlook. He has Outlook 2003.

When he opens an email with an attachment in Outlook, it seems like the attachment automatically gets downloaded, because it takes a long time for emails with attachments to open. After the email finally opens, when he clicks on the attachment, the attachment opens immediately and doesn't ask him to "Open, Save or Cancel". It just opens. (I guess into a temp folder).

Does anyone know why attachments seems to automatically download into a temp file when he opens an email?

Welcome Bhasphys to the windows 7 forums.

What you can do is to see what programs are loading when you boot. you can run msconfig in the run window as administrator and there are options to see what is starting when you boot.

Many programs like your Anti-Virus and such check for updates when you boot to make sure that you have the latest version and updates.

There are other programs, most free that will let you see what programs are starting up when you boot your computer.

I use a program called startupinspector to check and uncheck programs that startup when I boot.

Search on startupinspector with google.

Hi all.

I recently installed RealPlayer 11 on my dad's laptop, so he can watch and download video clips from sites like YouTube (he likes watching police chases, funny videos and the like).

He's running Windows Vista SP1, and Internet Explorer 7, if this is relevant.

Now then, before RealPlayer was installed, when he wanted to download a file, it would ask whether he wants to save the file or download it directly, as it usually does. But afterwards, when he selects to download a file, it bypasses this and downloads automatically, and I have to search for it in the Temporary Internet Files.

A school I help at has a lab full of students who watch the news at www.ChannelOne.com every day, and then read related articles. The problem is that the whole school shares one DSL connection. This causes the rest of the school practically lose Internet connectivity while the lab full of students watch the news video slowly buffer.

One possible solution is to show the video on one computer (using a projector) and then have the kids read the articles on their own (obviously, a lab full of kids reading articles doesn't hurt like a lab full of streaming videos).

I once wrote a small script to automatically download a video to their local server, so that all of the kids could watch the video from their local server instead of over the Internet. The problem is that I can't figure out where to download the video from ChannelOne. They're not opposed to us downloading the file and then letting the kids use their site after watching the video locally, but they don't support actually doing it.

I could use a screen capture program to record it, but that would require a teacher actually playing it (and recording it) first. It would be so much nicer to be able to just download a file.

For about 3 to 4 weeks now, nearly everytime I get online (using Juno speedband) my service starts to get really slow, so I logoff only to find that an unidentified update is downloading while I surf.

Beneath that is a progress bar, that shows it is downloading part I of II.

Hi guys,

I've just put my Dell Studio back to factory settings after having it for two years and deciding to give it a rebirth. I maintain my laptop very well but always like to do a reset every so often.

The problem I'm having now is that the damn thing wont update from Windows Update. It will identify that there are 76 important or critical downloads, but hangs at 0% downloading.

I went to the MS catalogue and tried to download manually, but even though I had the updates selected in my basket, again, it just hung on 0%.

I've ran Kasperskys TDS, the Malicious Tool Removal MS thingy-ma-jig, ran an sfc check where it did note there were corrupt files but it couldn't fix them. The Fix It link to the MS Update Not Working thing found no problems either.

So, I'm scratching my head and going to do a restart and see what's going on.

Any help greatly appreciated as this is doing my nut in.

Cheers!

Interestingly, I've just reset and it's telling me the system had to be restarted to finish installing updates, but when you click on it for more info, there's no updates listed. Bloody liar.

Hi Maxx, you shouldn't forget to mention the version of Excel you're using

Place this code in the sheet
Code:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Column <= 13 Then
If Target.Value <> "" Then
Range("A" & Target.Row & ":M" & Target.Row).Select
Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalDown).LineStyle = xlNone
Selection.Borders(xlDiagonalUp).LineStyle = xlNone
With Selection.Borders(xlEdgeLeft)
.LineStyle = xlContinuous
.ColorIndex = 0
.TintAndShade = 0
.Weight = xlMedium
End With
With Selection.Borders(xlEdgeTop)
.LineStyle = xlContinuous
.ColorIndex = 0

.Weight = xlMedium
End With
With Selection.Borders(xlEdgeBottom)

I have a spreadsheet that connects to a database.
When I open the spreadsheet, I got asked if I wanted to refresh the data. I did so, and clicked yes.
Some time later, after getting bored ticking 'yes' every time I opened the sheet I ticked the 'don't ask me again' button.
Now every time I open a sheet that pulls data from a remote data source, it automatically connects and updates the data - I no longer want this to happen!!!!! Any way I can switch this off as easily as I switched it on????

Hello all,

I need some help with figuring out how to make windows 7 rename the files i download in a series.

I can't tell much about the work am going to use this auto rename for much because it's confidential. But i'll give you all who are willing to help and idea on what i do and how i want it to be done.

Basically i download "things" from a certain site for a certain use and i want to rename the downloads as something else.







Basically, I would like my downloads to be renamed in the series of 1, 2, 3 etc automatically once i feed 1 manually for the first file i download. Thanks.

A:How do i make windows rename the files i download automatically?

OSMo, welcome to the windows 7 forum.

I do not believe that it is possible using http downloads.
If you wish to do the renaming, then about the only way I can think of would be to use a professional version of an FTP program where this would be possible. Otherwise, you would have to do it via a batch program which you would run after your downloads are finished.

I have Outlook 2010. Until recently, the email address I use the most would
automatically download any emails received every so often. Lately, it doesn't do that.

I went to File-->Options-->Advanced & clicked on Send/Receive. There I made sure that
my main email address was part of on of the groups listed. Then I set that group to
check & download emails every 15 minutes. However, it still is not doing that . How do
I fix this? Thank you.

I recently formatted my Windows XP due to various problems. I have verizon email account. Prior to formatting, my emails were deleted automatically from the web account (netmail.verizon.net) each time I opened outlook. However, this changed after the reformat. I now have two copies of each mail- one in outlook and the other one in the web account. What setting do I need to modify in outlook? Thanks in advance.

I use Comcast as my ISP. They provide a Data Meter so I can check on my data usage and not go over the 250GB monthly limit. I check it daily. Yesterday it was at 56 GB for the entire month. Today when I checked it, it was at 110 GB - it had doubled almost overnight.
 
This computer has recently shown a change in behavior. I use the Google Chrome browser and I have noticed that a new tab will suddenly be created without any input from me. The new tab is created but focus does not shift to it - I still remain in the current tab.  I have never viewed the new tab after it has been created. I just close it by clicking the little X, but I have noticed that the new tab contains things like the FBI scare warning about malware on my computer or the new tab is a web site containing  some kind of porn. This new tab is created randomly - I cannot recreate this occurrence on demand.
 
I have run full system scans of Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials and nothing was found.

I have a new Yoga 720. For the 3rd or 4th time it's reset itself and lost all of my data- outlook, quicken, the programs are still there but they are empty and it's like I never input any of the information. I contacted tech support and was told I would need to pay to get help with this ... which makes no sense to me as it is a new computer that isn't working correctly.

On a fresh install it takes my laptop 12-15 hours (honestly, no kidding) for Microsoft to say hey you got no updates, here is the list what ones do you want to install. Then many hours more to download them and install them.

Is there a way to download all the Windows 7 64bit updates manually (by a program), not one by one searching for them on google and have them all installed automatically by a program?

I have seen some older programs that did this but they don't seem to be current and I still have a about 100 updates after they installed the updates.

I would like to find a way to batch download and install all the updates to a fresh install of Windows 7.

Thanks

Hello my fellow databasers.

The Information:
I am currently working for a company that is tracking their part(s)
expenses per each customer job.

All customers' expenses are entered into the same 'primary' workbook so entering information is easier than going to each customer workbook. The column headings are as follows.

Customer Name - Date - Part Used - Cost - Invoice # - Additional Notes

There is 1 primary workbook and then each customer has their own workbook.

I have researched for a week now and am not savvy enough with Excel to know exactly what I should search for. I believe a macro is what I want though.
The question:
How, or what would I do, to have each workbook search for its relative 'Customer Name' and paste (auto populate) the information into the workbooks?

ex. I entered a part for John Doe within Primary Workbook. The second workbook sees John Doe, copies the row of all parts that have John Doe in the first column and populates it in the second workbook.

Also, would I need to create a separate Vlookup first to add a value to my customers so it wasn't text based to help the above equation work?
I know I could copy and paste each one, but sometimes we retroactively change values of costs, and for the amount of time I could save by creating ... a macro? or some formula would be well worth continued research. Any help is appreciated.

Application:

It's important for my employer to be able to see what parts were used ... Read more

A:Solved: Excel 2010: Macro or substitute to automatically copy data between workbooks

hi
A macro can do what you need but have you considered using filters on the primary workbook where you can select the customer name and only those records will be displayed? This will eliminate the need for multiple workbooks and make your life much simpler. An added benefit would be the ability to filter on other criteria like Date Or Part # so you can see across Customers what occurred on a specific date or which customers ordered a specific part.
Alternatively, this would be an ideal application for Access which would make data entry simpler and provide the information you need in the format you need.

It's a temptation to install and explore 8.1, but siding on the side of caution and prefer to delay the upgrade.

The 8.1 upgrade is NOT automatic, is it?

I would like to wait, maybe a month, for all the kinks and bugs to get worked out of 8.1 before it's installed on my PC.

Using a dual-boot, with Win7 on the other side. If it's not possible, then I plan to continue with just using Win7.

A:can I use Win8 and not automatically upgrade to 8.1?

Have not heard of it being automatic. You have to click on the tile in metro store to get it, just do not click should work. Unless MS gets pushy :-) which I would doubt.
