Once again, the never-ending saga of Windows Updates continuing to "Check for Updates" hour after hour after hour - with no results - is again plaguing me.

(I've already run the program in Brink's article [i.e. Option # 3] and cleared/reset the WU cache). Also have run sfc /scannow - no issues reported. I've also changed the WU setting in the Control Panel to "Never check for updates", and restarted the computer.

Does anyone here have any step-by-step instructions for me to try and resolve this problem and get those blasted updates installed?

Thank you for your time and any assistance.

A:Windows Updates (September 2016); Keeps checking for hours - Any help

Hi
Sure,
When manually installing updates you need to switch your update settings to Never check for updates and restart the machine first.
Windows Update Settings - Change
After restart verify that the windows update service is not running if it is Stop and switch to Manual apply and okay.
Make sure KB3020369 is installed if not manually install it this is the main article page with all versions,
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020369
These other links do prompt you to download as soon as you click on them just to give you a heads up
KB3020369
Win-7 32 bit
https://download.microsoft.com/downl...020369-x86.msu
Win-7 64 bit
https://download.microsoft.com/downl...020369-x64.msu

Then manually install KB3172605 main article page with all versions,
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3172605
KB3172605

https://download.microsoft.com/downl...172605-x86.msu

Win-7 64 bit
https://download.microsoft.com/downl...172605-x64.msu

After switch your windows update and service settings back to what you had prior and manually check for updates and the rest should show up shortly.

Like most people here the update stuck at 45%. I restarted several times & it was still stuck at 45%. Nice going Microsoft.! Today it mysteriously downloaded. Is anyone having problems with this latest update.? I am not a computer Guru but, it seems everything is OK so far. At least I hope it is. I am very Paranoid about any Microsoft updates as they usually Botch them up. I have my settings checked on Defer updates now. I have Windows 10 Pro if that helps. Thanks.! Marg

I needed to install .NET 3.5 on Server 2016 but have hit all of the roadblocks and need help. Here is what I have tried so far...

I tried to add the feature via the server manager but it ended with code 0x80070002. I did have to provide a path to the sources\sxs folder for the cab file which I expected but that didn't help.I tried using the DISM powershell command to add the feature, both using the source location and also using /All so that it downloads the files from Windows Update. The end result was the same as #1 attempt - 0x80070002.I made sure all updates for the OS have been applied and that updates for 'other Microsoft products' was checked. this made no change in the error.I checked the installed packages via powershell and it shows 3.5 as removed, which again is expected for Server 2016 as they intentionally left it out but provided the cab file in the install media.I have executed a clean sfc /scannow with no errorsI have run a clean dism package commandI have tried installing under a fresh admin user profileI have researched for around 3 hours on the forums so I look forward to the various input
I have uploaded both the DISM and CBS logs. I started fresh with both logs so they contain only details related to a single attempt t install via the server manager.

Dear IT Pros,
I have 2 questions that need your help and professional advice.
1) Does Microsoft has a tool to check whether a patch (KB) was superseded by another KB? In my case, I'm trying to search whether this KB4022715 and KB4025339 (both of this KB was released in 2017) was superceded
by another KB. This is because a security consultant has advised us to install both of this KB to prevent vulnerabilities but since it was released back in 2017, I suspect there must be a newer KB that supercedes it
2) Can advice what KB I need to download regarding this 2 bulletin ID CVE-2017-5715 and CVE-2019-11135? Can't seem to find it after much googling

Hi, we are becoming more and more frustrated with the forced windows updates. These may help home users but professional products like servers are not for everyday users and sometimes require alot of configuration to get legacy applications to work.
Windows will at times force updates no matter what we choose in respect to disable them. It is NOT up to Microsoft to determine if or when the servers I am responsible for need to be patched. Any reading and research we have done here has only yielded the
ability to prolong the updates. Once installed over 50% of the servers give an endless spinning circle and require restore or rebuild, this has become unacceptable and has forced us to start testing our applications with different Linux flavors.

Is there a way to STOP the updates indefinitely?

I am trying to add Windows 10 clients to Windows Server essentials 2016. It seem that in order for the server to see the clients I must the clients join the server server Domain. (Currently they are in a workgroup).

It looks like one has to change the Windows10 clients to access the WSE-2016 DNS. So in windows 10 I go to networks, bring up the adaptor setting. Bring up "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IvP4) and instead of "Obtain the DNS address automatically" change it to always get the DNS address on the WSE-2016 (found with ipconfig).
Then within Windows I use ?System?, ?about?, and Join the server DOMAIN. It now works. The client can now see the Server domain.
I can then see the Server files and the server can see the Windows 10 shared files.
There are still problems however.
When I reboot the Windows 10 client. I have a brand new user screen with only some of my original desktop icons showing. Do I have to essentially rebuild up everything on my desktop again!
Question: Is there not a way to have my original desktop appear when I am joined to the Domain.
Second, since there will be times when the server is off I used the router static DNS IP address as the alternative address in the above dialog box of the Windows10 clients. Seems to work since the client can access the internet even with the WSE 2016 off.
Here is my second question. I have a few home laptops as well. If I force the DNS to the server what happens when I travel. ... Read more

I have just succeeded in hooking my Windows 10 client to Windows Server Essentials 2016. To do this I had to switch the W10 from a Workgroup to Domain setup.
All works fine except most of the desktop items originally on the client icons disappeared. Worse when I launce things like Outlook, Word etc. I have to initialize it from scratch.
How does one get all the settings, desktop icons etc. to re-appear on this new account that is now chanced from a Workgroup to a Domain setting.
I am an administrator (and only user) on both the W10 and WSE-2016. I see under users my original name on the W10/Workgroup and a new name. The new name does not have many files in it. I assume that?s the problem. But when I copy stuff from the old name folder across the programs are still not initialized correctly.

Hi,
I am aware that the latest MBSA version available is 2.3 which is not supported for Windows 10 and Windows server 2016. What is the best alternative for MBSA which can be used on Windows 10 and Windows server 2016 to identify the missing security patches.

Hi All

There's something I've been thinking about recently that I would like to ask the forum for your opinions.

I run a lab at home with about 30 Windows Server 2016 servers. They all have Windows Defender installed and I have a Group Policy which enables/configures certain features like Cloud Based Protection. I never ever browse the internet from any of these servers (I use my desktop with my SUA account for internet activity) and I don't share my servers with anyone else.

What I was wondering is:

To free up memory on my cluster and to reduce disk IO I was thinking of uninstalling Windows Defender on Windows Server 2016 using Powershell as follows:

Remove-WindowsFeature Windows-Defender, Windows-Defender-GUI

Now obviously this would mean I would have no AV/malware on these test servers but since I don't browse the internet from any of these machines the risk should be minimal (note I said minimal as I do accept having no AV has its risks/downside which I accept).

I may keep Defender installed on some servers that have ports open from the internet like my mail gateway (anti spam etc) but besides this I can't think of any other reason to keep Defender installed. All servers are behind a pfsense firewall in different VLANs and have tight firewall rules controlling traffic between them.

I don't have any kind of third party AV/anti malware installed. Everything I download gets checked on my desktop before copying to any of my test servers.
