Windows update and install issue

Q: Windows update and install issue

Hello-

I tried to update the service pack 2 a while back, I think I may have shut it down before it properly installed. My computer works fine. But when I go to shut it down, it keeps asking me to install 16 updates. Which I have done many times, but the updates never seem to take.

Also my Windows update is not working. When I try to use it I get the following message:
"Windows update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not currently running. You may need to restart your computer."

I have restarted my computer many times, also I have gone into services and it says Windows update service is 'started' it's start up type is 'Automatic (delayed)'. I have stopped the service and restarted it, but that does not seem to help.

Any help is much appreciated, Thank you

Preferred Solution: Windows update and install issue

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.)

Probably you have issue with other service.It's pitty you didn't say what kind of error code have you returned - I can only suspect 80070424 or 80246008,without details defficult to say any more.Prepare log from VistaSysInfoTool VistaForums SysInfo Tool

The laptop is a Toshiba SATELLITE U920T which came with windows 8 originally. It was upgraded to 10 during the time it was free and hasn't had any issues updating until now.

Most threads about that error leads to an IDT audio driver which isn't on this system I have a realtek audio driver installed. Tried uninstalling it but it doesn't seem to uninstall from device manager. The system has 30+GB free so that shouldn't be the issue.

I suspect the disk space error from the install media is due to what ever is causing the 0x8007001f code to be given during updates.

A fresh install isn't an option as there were programs on here that came from schooling and I wouldn't be able to get them back after fresh install.

I also noticed there are probably about 4 of those recovery partitions from all the previous upgrades not sure if that could be somehow related.

If anyone has an idea about this or anything to try it would be much appreciated.

This problem has been occuring for awhile and is preventing my windows XP from being up to date. It's now preventing me from running certain games and applications that require an up to date windows install. In general it's probably not good either ! I can't install the .NET framework updates for SP2. It seems to work, but then when I log back in it always asks me to update the same ones. I'm not sure what's going on or if there is a way to manually install them? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Thank you!

Hey people,
So recently I've had a lot of trouble, had a bad hard drive, now it's been replaced and I have reinstalled Vista Home Premium x64. On first start up it says there are 72 updates for my computer. When I okay installation it installs them all except about 5, then it restarts and shows a screen saying that it's installing the updates. Then the wait begins, I fell asleep waiting for it last night, 2 hours down and still no movement.
Is there a way I can just install them a few at a time?
I think it's hanging out cos it can't take that long to apply the changes, can it?

A:Fresh Install Windows update issue

Edhorny,

I recently had similar troubles with updates. Your computer is set to update automatically. If you change this setting to just inform you that there are available updates, then when you view those available you can uncheck and/or check the updates you want to install at any one time.

Once I did that and now only update a handful at a time, I have not had any problems since. Also, I have found out quickly on this forum that other people periodically have problems with a patricular update so it is usually worth your while to investigate the individual updates before you install them. It could save you some headaches.

Hope this helps a bit.

Hello, I have Carbon X1 5th (20HR) running Windows 10 pro (updated).  Altought I followed the instructions here - https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/cy/en/downloads/ds120390 (This is the page for Lenovo users who wish to update TPM firmware) - and installed the "BIOS Update Utility for Windows 10" version 1.33, Windows still keeps telling me to update the TPM firmware driver.  In BIOS it shows that I have TPM ver 2.0, enabled. Since Windows kept telling me to update the TPM driver, thanks to Google I found out that there is a tool created by Lenovo called "TPM Firmware Update Utility -ThinkPad" (It is worth noting that this tool is not mentioned on the instruction page). I downloaded the tool, but can't understnad how to use it (assuming that I should use it at all, because this tool is not mentioned on the TPM instructions page). Could you please help me to solve the TPM issue described above? Is there a way to check what version do I have? Thanks in advance!

We are having an issue printing from our EHR medical program since a forced update that our support department at EMR says is coming from a overly aggressive Windows Security Update.
 See attached.  We were instructed to uninstall the update but it continues to reinstall when restarting each computer. We have about 13 computers and 8 Microsoft surface tablets.   All computers are running various versions of Windows
8.1 to 10.  You cannot stop the updates from occurring.  Is there a fix because this is seriously affecting our work daily.

From my EHR  tech:



Uninstalling the update fixed the issue.  I would de-select this update on all machines as you apply the latest round.


I am letting development know... I am not sure if they will fix or if Microsoft may release an update to the update first.

I am unable to update the Kernel-mode driver framework ver 1.11 for windows 7 for x64-based systems (KB2685811). I get error: 80073712

Also, I am getting BSOD/stop errors in normal mode that say anything from:

I'm not sure if they are related.

When I run in safemode I do not get the BSOD. When in normal mode I will get BSOD consistently when running Norton Full System Scan, specifically when the full system scan gets to the Windows/system32 folder.

I, again, apologize for double posting. I figure I should include the host of other issues I'm having. Maybe they can all be inter related.

-my DVD/RW drive, when connected to mother board in ANY SATA slot, causes the BIOS screen to freeze forever. I have disconnected the drive at this time while trouble shooting. I have tried known-good SATA cables so I know it's either the DVD/RW drive or perhaps a driver or mobo failure.

-I have run the memory diagnostic tool in windows. No issues were reported.

-I have NOT run memtest86 because I do not have a disk drive connected.

-I have had stop-errors (BSODS) such as PFN_list_corrupt, System_service_Exception, Memory_management, IRQ_not_less_or_Equal
All of these could be a result of bad RAM.

I have purchased new RAM as a means to fix my problems. It seemed to work for 2 weeks, then the stop errors returned.

Hey all,

So I am currently reinstalling Windows on my dad's old laptop after the hard drive decided up die on us, and I stumbled on a problem that's a bit too hard for me to fix.

Namely, I am completely unable to install any Windows Update. Not even MSE will install.

I tried running SURT, but got error code 0x8000247
I also tried running SFC /SCANNOW, it ran the verification fase until 98% and then stated that there where unfixable problems.

The displayed error codes are:
In WU: "8024A000"
In SURT: "0x8000247"
Whilst installing MSE: "0x80070643".

once complete, leave the system alone for at least an hour to rebuild the database, then reboot, and run another MGADiag report and post the results.

Hi, I have recently just got done building my computer. Did the hardware, pretty much all the software till all I had to do was install 231 important windows updates. So I aloud it and it took a good hr to install it all.. than the computer shuts down and I turn it back on, than it goes into configure the updates mode.. 20 minutes later it says failed windows updates and is now reverting back.. and not in those exact words.

When I was finally able to get out of the revert update screen which took about 30-40 minutes everything seemed normal, till I opened the update history screen and showed about 95% of the updates failed. I also noticed that it had installed the updates on my HDD which is my D: storage but should have installed it on my C: SSD storage. Now I need to figure out how to get rid of that locked folder on my HDD and place all the windows updates on my SSD.

gtx 750 ti gpu

ddr5 2400 memory

evga 850 g2 psu

I've been searching around to see if there was a fix but a lot of people have had a really hard time with this issue and seems to be so many people unable to fix it.. I'll be turning off windows update till I figure this out.

I found some questionable files this week that had been downloaded by my son. I have since spent a great deal of time trying to scan and clean the computer. Each malware/spyware/anti-virus scanner has had varying levels of success.

It seems that the bulk of my issues have been resolved but I am still unable to install the following update from Microsoft: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 9 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2719177)

Each time I try to update it, it aborts and gives me an error code (80073712), that is not showing up in any google searches or searches of microsoft's site.

Additionally, every time I shutdown or restart the computer it shows that new updates are being installed.

However, anybody has an idea if your system will be faster when you do a clean install with the november update instead of an upgrade? (similar to the speed difference when installing the clean initial version instead of upgrading from W7)?

Hi.
The difference of W7 > W10 upgrade vs. W10 clean install is substantial.
The difference of W10 10240 > W10 1511 upgrade vs. clean install is pretty negligible, IMO.

Hello none21,
Go in to the Bios, and make the first boot device the DVD/CD drive, insert the Vista DVD/CD and reboot, it should now boot from the Vista disk, from there you will be able to carry out a repair, or set it back to the point before you installed the update with system restore.
Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

So long story short i was continuously getting notification to install some particular updates again and again .

They were : KB2446704 , KB2418241 , KB2539631 . ( All of them are security updates for .net framework 2.0 sp2 and 3.5 sp1)

So whenever i installed them and restarted my pc they used to show up again . So today i decided to download Windows install clean up utility and uninstall and reinstall .net framework 2.0 sp2 .I uninstalled but when i tried to install it again i couldn't . It showed as a " setup error " .

Note :
Also i have an windows xp sp3 .

Retry the Update(s).3. If the Update(s) fail(s), proceed to Step 4.4. Download .Net Cleanup Utility: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/08/28/8904493.aspx5.

I can not install the latest .NET FRAMEWORK. It downloads ok, but when I select to install it I am told that there is another intallation in process and I need to finish that one first.

This has gone one for three weeks now. As a result I can no longer open Windows MSGR. I am told by the computer that maybe I should try to download and reinstall it. But when I try to reinstall it, I get the message that "another installation is in progress..."

I have consulted with the helpers at Mircrosoft. They offered many solutions. All of which I tried. But I guess the problem was too much for them, as I have not had a responce from my last failed attempt (10 days ago !)

Also, on a different level of sophistication. Last year I downloaded a paid version of Norton Internet Security. The supbsription expired, but be dammed if I can delete program !! It will not delete !!! or uninstall, I guess that is the better word. I have made several efforts to uninstall the program for several months now.

Thank you for any insights,

Hey guys, long time!
I've got myself a pretty big issue here, and I really hope you guys can help me figure it out...
I just bought an acer desktop that was barely used with Vista Home Premium on it, that had been reset to factory settings. Of course this knocked it back to sp1, but after a grueling day of updates, I was able to get it back to sp2. This is where things get screwy.
When I tried to dl the security through my isp, Norton 360, it gets to the point where it's "communicating with Norton server", and it sticks there. I've also tried Avast, and the installer completely crashes. I thought running the rest of updates would help, but updates says it will update updates and restart, and when I click install, it jumps to looking for updates. It will sit there like that for hours if I let it. The log says it updated successfully yesterday, but it apparently did not. I am on the admin account, so I have permission, and I checked network settings make sure it wasn't public. I also disabled windows firewall. Nothing works.
I was able to install mbam and run a full scan, which comes back clean. Seems to me that something is missing from windows.
Help?

A:Can't install Antivirus or update windows update

Hello MrChanceMan, a longtime Vista user here.
 
Windows Update has been very slow for Vista and Windows 7 since August, and there is no known fix at the user end. SP2 was released in 2009, so the number of updates since then is large.
 
Online installers generally require a more modern browser that Internet Explorer 7 to function. If you're in a hurry, I believe you could install Firefox. (Chrome will no longer support Vista beginning next month.) The only IE version that Microsoft still supports on Vista is 9. (It was released in 2011 and has a few more prerequisites after SP2.) You can get IE 9 via Windows Update; but only if you "Click here for details" about free software from Microsoft Update and accept the terms - which would mean even more updates to check for, especially if Office is installed. When you finally get it updated and all desired software is installed, I highly recommend making an image because restoring Vista from the ground up is for the birds, as you have come to realize. Good luck!

I have a HP LaserJet 1320 whose drivers were a devil to install on XP, but it's automatically handled by Windows 7 and I couldn't be happier... it prints and seems to work OK now.

Trouble is the otherwise-heavenly Windows Update keeps listing a driver update for the printer, but the installation of that update always fails w/ code 80070103, which doesn't have any useful information.

The update is known as "Microsoft driver update for hp LaserJet 1320 PCL 5."

When I install, it creates a restore point, looks like it is all proceeding fine, than proclaims "Some updates were not installed" and says Windows Update encountered an unknown error."

If it works with the currently installed drivers, I wouldn't worry about it. If you really feel the need to update the driver, go to the HP site and get it from there. Set update to ignore the driver.

I recently reinstalled windows 7 home premium, after uninstalling Linux mint Cinnamon. I now have to
catch up on all the updates, as I had allowed Linux disk to erase windows. I have managed to do 24 updates, but there is another 200 to do. The problem I am now having when I try to do a few at a time
the downloading sticks at 0%. I wondered if it is my Telstra 4g internet connection. Lately it is flicking
between low signal strength and average, within a few seconds. I don't know if I am right. I was thinking
that there cannot be anything wrong with windows updates because it managed to do 24 updates.

A:windows update issue

I just did a clean install just a couple of days ago and I know what you are talking about.

Many are complaining about the same problem because they are not seeing the download % moving.
That is normal in most cases.
It's probable downloading and you just have to wait.
If your like me a home user with only me online, I just watch the blinking light on the router. The percent isn't moving on the screen but the router is blinking crazy I know I'm getting the download.

I took me over 5 hours to download and install 200 plus updates with DSL 3.0 gigbits.
I never do anything on the computer when I doing Windows Updates.

I would also recommend using a wire connection, no wifi.

KB 3068708 fails with error 8007371B

I have tried installing them individually without success.

I did install a Microsoft program which was supposed to scan the PC and list problems (it is used check a PC for issues in readiness to be upgraded, but the list it produces can be used to show possible issues that are stopping the updates) but I was unable to find out how it worked so I am unsure if the correct software was downloaded and installed. There is no Malware\Virus on the PC.

Are these common problem with these updates or error codes, how do you resolve them?

I installed Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 for x64-based Systems (KB954430). After I installed it, update kept coming back with the exact same update! I'm sure I installed it correctly because I rebooted after I installed it. It came right back and said I still needed this update. This is really annoying! I could really use some help.

I forgot to add, I'm also getting alerts for old ("important") updates, such as one that was published in June of 2008 (and even one in October 2007!) It's strange, because I had my computer in June 2008 and it never came up and told me about them. However, I didn't have my computer on October of 2007! This is very strange and now I'm wondering if something's wrong with my system. I've never had problems with updates up until now.

EDIT: Now I'm getting duplicates for one other update: Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 (KB941833). I'm doing a full scan with Malwarebytes and so far it has found nothing.

Hi kibouThe problem you describe seems to be quite common.

1. check for updates
2. install the updates that it downloaded before this problem occurred
3. it says that its "busy installing other updates even though i see no activity going on"

Now the last time it successfully downloaded and installed updates was on Nov-24-2008

I also want to point out that Windows Defender is also having the same problem
and i tried disabling my antivirus(avast home edition) and firewall before i make windows check for updates and still i get the same problem..

which caused his computer to crash losing the research paper for his class.
that being said, not turning in the paper beign 25% of his grade has caused him to fail said class.
I am desperately trying to prove to the college that he has computer issues, as this was an online class and it needed to be transmitted electronically as they are not giving any leniency as he rewrote that paper (needed a few days to do so) and they won't accept it as late.
