I have set MSE updates for manual install, but it auto installs anyway?

Q: I have set MSE updates for manual install, but it auto installs anyway?

Hey:
 
There are 4 options to set MSE updates.
 
I have MSE updates set to: "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them."
 
But MSE with no warning, decides to start downloading and installing updates, and automatically shutdowns which requires a restart.
 
This usually happens when I walk away from the computer for a few minutes. I come back and the update already installed and shutdown, which requires a restart.
 
The problem with this is if I have open programs on the screen or processor work I am working on. The download installs and then shuts down, and I have to restart the computer. This wipes everything off the screen. Sometimes Firefox saves the open programs, sometimes it doesn't.
 
Most importantly to me, is the shutdown/restart doesn't save whatever I was working on the word processor. Which if you worked for 2-3 hours on a project and it disappears because of the shutdown, is not good a good thing.
 
So what's the trick to setting MSE so I can control the download/installation/shutdown/restart thing? So I can save my processor work beforehand?
 
Thanks in advance for any help.

Preferred Solution: I have set MSE updates for manual install, but it auto installs anyway?

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.)

Just found out Win 7 SP1 was not auto-installed in a netbook and a home PC today, even though both machines were set up to auto-update. The SP1 was sitting in the Windows update notification. Is this normal?

Also after manually installing SP1 (i.e. click OK in Windows update), some old updates started to pop up and asked to be installed. I suppose they were for the SP1. Is this normal?

Just hoping this is not some kind of virus.

Thanks!

What do people advise as best practice for the store updates? Do you recommend automatic or manual. I just switched mine onto manual because a couple of native apps got screwed up on some user accounts after some auto updates that got stuck, cancelled by me and then re initiated (which got them going). I ended up having to delete affected user accounts and recreate them to get the apps going again.

the only thing with manual is it once bodged the store for my own account, I manually checked for updates and a store one was available which I downloaded. Store shut itself down and when I tried to re open it nothing launched. So that's made me wary of this method too. I managed to use a system restore point successfully to get things back to where they were. Flicked auto back on and the store update must of gone through silently in background with success.

so both methods have burned my fingers. But I'd be curious as to what most people on here opt for / recommend , auto or manual?

Since I've had the common problem of Windows 8 Updates hanging at around the 12% figure on my new Laptop, I have resorted to Manual Updating which has been successful. Once the Update is downloaded, then you're invited to restart to install the Update, but if you don't do this then the Update fails to 'automatically' install following a shutdown and reboot of the system. Once you have rebooted, then you have to restart again in order to install the Update surely causing more wear and tear on the system!!

Is there a way of configuring the system to install the Manual Update on a shutdown/reboot so that you don't have to restart again?

Store M$ ciritical updates for later manual install. I suspect when I first download them they are placed on a temp file somewhere. It is a matter of knowing where. How to save the update files to another place. How to start a manual install from another place.

Why would I want to do that?

I want a copy of Microsoft Critical Updates to keep on a partition in the event of my needing to re-install Windows 98 SE.

Having the updates on a partition, or a CD, would save an enormous amount of time on re-installing Windows.

Likewise Internet Explorer with critical updates installed..

Also because very soon Microsoft will make them unavailable. I would also bet Microsoft will not allow other sites to offer them.

Thanks for the info.

I have auto update (windows XP SP2) on and keep getting the same download information for:
Windows XP Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer for Windows XP (KB905915)

When I select download, I see the percentage of downloading in my tray, but then it disappears. Then later or perhaps the next day, I get the same notification to download the update. It disappears when it begins to download.

I tried manually downloading this patch from MS, and it downloaded, but then I get an error when trying to install it.

What concerns me, as well is that is that it may have tried to download this 60 times or more in the last 2 months. Does this mean that this file is somewhere on my drive in some hidden folder?

Any help would be appreciated.

I have also tried to install the following updates, and continue to get the message that the installation has failed:

Update for Outlook 2003 Junk Email Filter (KB911961)

A:Same auto updates keep coming and won't install

When the message box appears, saying “Updates are ready for your computer. Click here to install these updates.” Click the box

When you click on the box, the Automatic Updates dialog box appears and asks you if you want Express or Custom install.

If you do not want to install a particular update, click Custom, then uncheck (deselect) the reference to the update. A box will prompt you: “Don’t show me this update again.” You must check (select) the option to not show the update again, and click OK. At this point, the particular update you selected will not be offered again.

I have had a few computers in the past that simply refused to install particular updates, this method won't allow you to install the update, but it will stop it from continually trying.

What I want to know is it OK to manually download the latest security updates (for May 2013) and will the OS recognize them without a problem and if I do this would it conflict with when I actually install SP1 at a later date.

Shortly after 3 am today, I noticed my Win 7 SP1 computer was about to automatically restart in order to complete installing updates. Before I could abort this, the computer restarted. And I immediately noticed that wretched Icon to "Get Windows 10" in my notification tray, with no way to remove or disable it.
When I checked my view updates history in Control Panel>Windows update, I saw that no less than 39 "Recommended" updates had been installed on May 31 - some issued as far back as 2012. Not one of them applied to issues on my system (the ones fixing problems with Lithuanian and Russian currency spring to mind as examples). In short, they all looked like updates I had hidden.
I checked my Windows Update settings, and Automatic Updates was still disabled. I went to Windows Update, and my "Hidden Updates" folder was empty. Well, at least I knew the what and where, if not the how and why, of what had happened.
Well, it was easy enough to uninstall the update that put the "Get Windows 10" icon in my tray - I just uninstalled the KB3035583 update from Control Panel in the usual way. Only took 3-4 minutes, including a system restart. Great - one uninstalled useless update down, only 36 to go. That should only take 2-3 hours.
But KB2600217 and KB2901983 were .NET Framework updates I had hidden back in 2015. And when I check Windows Update, it is now offering me no less than 12  Important .NET security updates that have been issued ... Read more

A:Windows installs hidden updates

Did you install the recent Win 7 SP1 KB3125574 convenience rollup? Maybe they got installed via that rollup??  Or did they get automatically installed because you didn't install the roll-up?
I have Win 7Pro+SP1 (32-bit) and I've only been offered MSE updates in past few days...
Make sure you specifically cancel the upgrade to Win 10 by clicking the link in the upgrade box to Change or Cancel... Just clicking the red X to close the box does not cancel the update. Clicking that X means you accept the upgrade and it will happen without further warning.
MS has been getting way too pushy and doing things without permission recently and that needs to STOP!

When I get ready to shut down it gives me the option to install updates everytime I get ready to click the shut down but and it didn't do this before.

I have a screen shot of what happens when I get ready to shut down...It's always on update 1 of 1. I thought it would eventually finish updating, but it must be a glitch or something. It's been going on for about a week. Help please, thanks in advance.

A:My computer installs updates 1 of 1 when I shut down.

Welcome Caramelfyneqt.

It would be helpful if you knew what update this is trying to install? Perhaps going to Windows Update on your computer and try to find out what update it is trying to install?

That said, perhaps this will fix your problem :- How do I reset Windows Update components?

Hi all,

On more than 1 occassion I have been offered an update immediately after I had successfully installed it (as confirmed in update history). I would venture to say that in about 50% of the times the update is no longer offered a second time after I reboot(whether or not instructed to by Vista). However, that still leaves me with plenty of occassions where I have to install the same update 2 or 3 times to be sure "it took" and the fact that this happens at all lol

Thanks in advance for your help!

A:Updates keep getting offered after successful installs

Hello Viviand,

Welcome to the Vista Forums.

Next time that happens, instead of downloading and installing the updates again, try clicking on the check for updates button on the left of WU. See if this updates WU or still finds that you need the updates.

I have been running with PCs since CPM, and have gotten away from many a blue screen...but this one is tough.
Usually I think I run a tight ship, with SafeXP but....

OS: WIN XP SP3 Prof.Ed.
Avast free
Disconnected from network.
Backed up, Console installed, Registry backed up.

Logs:
GMER works,
DDS does not, even DDS.htm or .scr. Even in Safe mode. Logs posted. "This tool does not support your Operating System" bogus error. Hijaak This file supplied.


Symptoms:
Security logs initally were full of a svchost service accessing the internet by disallowed of high port number. Searched but nada. The trouble seemed to get nasty when IPv1.6 was added by a MS update. It seems the raccoons figured out how to make a tunnel under the Network Service, so that the network icon in the taskbar was not blinking when I was accessing the network. PC disconnected.

Novell Netware was spontaneously installed but I defeated this and removed IPv1.6.
It looked like the network was sent to a filtering site, and then to the address of interest.

RKill helped get the Network Service behavior back. Now it shows I am disconnected.

Symptoms:
Avast intially reported rootkit in locater.exe (replaced with clean copy but no effect).
Many boots have a dirty byte set so CHKDSK.exe runs on C drive.
RKill reports many fake error messages but does not find anything in the log when it finally runs. It did work though.

Clear selective blocking of executables .exe,.scr,.htm with fictici... Read more

A:Nasty Rootkit, no updates, no installs.

OK, I read the instructions on Kapersky TDSSKiller, downloaded latest:

Both the TDSS.exe versions came up blank on Alureon.

So this would seem to suggest the virus is not Alureon-related or a new version.

Still a lot of CHKDSK activity...wondering if this CHKDSK file could be corrupted?

RKill clearly shows hilarious bogus MS errors.

Bootkit?

See attachment. Has anyone else had trouble installing this update? I just ran a Windows validator on Windows 7 (legitcheck.hta) with said it was valid software (duh), and I have been able to install other updates and patches, except this one, which has to do with:

Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Restributible Package (KB973924)

I have it downloaded, but each time I try to install it, it fails. Is there a reason for this?

Hi and welcome

What error message are you getting on fail?

If no message you can go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search) go to the windows logs>applications tab, and systems tab. Look for updates and see what event ID and "source" are listed and let us know what they are.
