Preferred Solution: Windows 10 Fall Creator Update-Lenovo System Update Shows 11 Updates But They Are Installed

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.)


T460p here. After I updated my Windows 10 to Fall Creator Update - Lenovo System Update Shows 11 Updates that are already installed - so it want's to install the same drivers over and over again. Probably a bug. Anyone with the same experience?

Tried to upgrade from Windows Update as well as using the Media Creator Tool by downloading from the Microsoft website, neither of them works. In the end, I got an error code "0xC1900101 - 0x20017", and a message "The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation." I have every driver and OS software updated to-date. I do have Ubuntu installed as a dual-boot OS and Macrium Reflect configured as a recovery software from the boot, which might have caused the problem. I encountered this issue a while ago with the Spring Creator Update (see here), and I fixed it by deleting the Ubuntu booting partition, which I definitely want to avoid! I searched on Google, similar issued happened for HP laptops and was related to the BIOS driver. Does anyone know if this issue is related to the Thinkpad BIOS setting or something we have to wait for Lenovo to fix? Any solution to this issue? Thanks.

I installed all the updates last tuesday and two of them (while installed successfully ) keep popping up as needing to be installed.   This is happening when i run Secunia PSI as well .
The two are  Internet Explorer 11  updates 
KB3021952 and KB3032359 
Any ideas as to why ?
Thank you

A:Windows update shows two updates need to be installed but already are

Windows downloaded updates could be corrupted you can delete "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution" directory which holds Windows updates cache. 
Close all running programs and save open files then open Command Prompt as a administrator type sc stop wuauserv  press Enter key. Type rd /s /q  C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution press Enter key. Type Shutdown /r /t 2 press Enter key to restart your computer and after login to Windows check and install updates if needed.

Spoiler (Highlight to read)IMPORTANT!!IMPORTANT!!Friends from Lenovo,Yesterday I did the update to the new version of Windows 10, called Windows 10 Fall Creators Update or Windows 10, version 1709, and after the update was done I find out that the hotkey driver, that controls the Fn commands on the keyboard of my Lenovo ThinkPad X220, doesn`t work correctly with this new version of Windows 10. Therefore, I would like to know what can I do to fix this issue, so the hotkey commands work properly again in my notebook, or if it is going to be an update of this file (8jvu43ww.exe) that I could install in my notebook to fix this issue. Could you please tell me what can I do to make the Fn commands work properly with the new update of Windows 10 (Windows 10 Fall Creators Update) or if it is going to be an update of the hotkeys that is compatible with the new version of Windows 10?I look forward to hear your comments, and I hope you already have an idea, an answer to solve this issue. Yours truly,Cristián Palau

Well I figured that the "Activation errors" issue would crop up when a new update like this come out - my guess that many people would be doing the upgrade at once.

Ok, so recently, i installed an optional update through Windows update on to my Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit system. When i logged on, i noticed that my netgear wireless internet card was no longer working at all. I tried to uninstall the update since it seemed to be working before it was added. however even though it shows up in the "update history" tab, it does not show up in the "installed updates" tab.

the exact update name:
-Broadcom driver update for Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter

anyone know how i can get rid of it/downgrade it to the previous working version?

A:Update shows in history, but not in installed updates

Yeah, that is because it is a driver. Go to Device Manager > under Network Adaptors you will find your Broadcom > double click on it and go to the Driver tab. There you can roll- back.

I was installing the Windows 10 Creator Update (see reddit.com/r/windows) using the official ISO file as well as the Media Creating Tool downloaded from Microsoft website, but then it failed with error code 0xC1900101-0x20017 with a message :"The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation". The update stuck at the booting splash screen, no hard disk activity, nothing moves. Tried a few times and tried different ways to install it, but nothing worked. I have enough space to install the update and the machine is having Ubuntu 16.04 as well as a recovery software on the system alongside Windows 10. No idea what is wrong. I was suspect BIOS or drivers for this issue. Does anyone encounter this problem?

Allright, I've been banging my head all morning on this wonderful monday mystery. We have got T460s i5 6200u specced machines for our clients that typically need docks, either the Pro or Ultra's.  We have had no issues with monitor output on the docks with Windows 10 enterprise 64bit with Anniversary. However, we are now starting to roll out our the imagages on the T460s laptops with  KMS server Enterprise Windows 10 with Creator Update. Since then, I have not been able to get any new T460s to reliably output via VGA, Displayport or DVI through an ultra or pro dock.  With the laptop lid closed and with full power running, and just the LCD laptop screen off, the docks refused to output to any monitor. Only when you slightly open the lid will the monitor output on the docks "wake up" finally up.  Monitor output does work if you have the laptop lid open when docking but neither are a real good solution The lenovo update has been run and  everything is updated included dock firmware.  I've disabled sleep mode just to make this easier with docking and undocking

Last week I had to get my computer reformated and windows update seemed fine. I have Windows XP Pro and it's just the bast few days I've had problems. My updater keeps alerting me to three files I need installing. Two are 'Update for Windows XP' and one is a 'Security Update for Windows XP' I click install and it goes through the process and says all three are done and installed fine. I get no errors or anything, but then as soon as it goes away, the yellow shield pops up again and says I have the same three items needing to be installed.

I've tried updating at least three times now and each time it says it was successful only for it to pop up again. I've even written the KB numbers that are written after it down and it's the same thing each time. I've tried rebooting and then doing it but that hasn't done anything either. I didn't have this problem with any of the previous updates and I'm not sure what to do now.


A:Windows Update - Says It Installed But Shows Up Again.

Hi Corvinus and Welcome to Bleeping Computer. Click Start/ All Programs/ select Windows Update. It will link you to the Windows update website and show updates needed.Select Update History in the left hand window of your screen on this site. This will show all updates, which ones failed and why.You are probably missing previous critical updates and may have to go back and get those updates, then the Windows XP SP2 will work properly. Follow the restart prompts in between each update as instructed until they are all done. It will take a while, but you'll be back in business and running soothly in no time.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update phased rollout approach - Windows Experience Blog

You better wait

The company recommends users to wait for the Fall Creators Update to be offered via Windows Update, though there?s no estimate as to how much this wait could last as it all depends on the number of bugs and issues that the company finds in the new OS version.Click to expand...

You might not have been offered the upgrade, because of the software/hardware you have. Like AMD causing black screen during boot.

Hi there, I have a T460s and when running Lenovo System Update, there are a couple of updates that are suggested, but I have that version already installed. Is this a bug in the System Update application? Examples:Lenovo Power Management Driver - 10 [32,64]It shows:Version: Installed Version: If I try to install it, after successful installation next time System Update runs it again suggests to install this "update". Similarly under Optional updates it showsRealtek Audio Driver - 10 [64]Version: when I look up the details and check which version I currently have, it is exactly the same version. And also here if I try to install the update, next time System Update again suggests I have this update available. I find this all a bit strange. Thanks,Jorik

Been trying to solve this issue for 3 days and have done the following to no avail. Search box typed run and then entered msiexec /unregister , then msiexec /regserver
1. In Services, Windows Installer, already set to manual, clicked on start and received following pop up error, Windows could not start the Windows Installer Service on Local Computer. Error 5: Access Denied.
2. Changed Permissions so that users and administrators have full control on all HKEYs.
3. CMD: sfc /scannow ? Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
4. Saved on desktop Windows 7 msiserver.reg and double clicked on it.
5. Downloaded registry repair software.

Is your Recvoery parttion still intact? - Check your manual for the Recovery procedures,and back up your data to external media as a precaution.

Then attempt a System Restore to before you attemtped to repair the system.

Then post an MGADiag report - I have a suspicion I know what the problem is, and that should onfirm it (or tell me I'm well off base!)

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

I've been running windows 7 home premium 32 bit without problems for several years
I did a clean install of windows 7 home premium 64 bit from DVD
I activated it
SP1 (KB976932) appeared in the list of available updates so I ran Windows Update
When the updates were complete I checked the update history and SP1 (KB976932) was successful
However when I checked installed updates there was no mention of SP1 and the windows edition does not show SP1 either
There is no windows icon on the task bar to request the free upgrade to windows 10
I have repeated the clean install process 3 times with the same result. I also tried downloading SP1 from microsoft website but that got stuck in a boot loop
When I was running windows 7 32 bit the windows icon was available on the task bar to request the free upgrade to windows 10
I'm not that concerned about getting SP1 I just want to register for the free windows 10 upgrade
I'm running an Intel E6750 with 4gb ram on a gigabyte 965p-dq6 mobo. It's pretty old but I have a similar PC of the same vintage that ran win 7 64 bit without any problems before I upgraded it to windows 8 and I had no problems registering for the windows

Hi all,
I head to this section on advise by a Moderator from the Virus/trojan/Spyware Help section.
After cleaning the machine from a rootkit I have this issue:
I removed and then reinstalled SP3 (twice) and after downoading the updates now my pc prompts me to install updates that appear to be already in the system.
The last update haunting me is KB2633952 (before it was KB981793).
After every reboot I have the yellow update icon on the toolbar (down on the left, close to the clock). If start the installation procedure it ends telling me it is impossible to install. I tried to download it directly from Microsoft download center and the result is an installation error: "update cannot be installed as a newer or same timezone has already been installed on the System".
If I search the system I find the update in these directories:
1) C:\Windows\System32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}
2) C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\be9e26e54f7a2d73396715001d0e1e17\update
3) C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download.old\be9e26e54f7a2d73396715001d0e1e17\update

Please note that the system now appears to be cleared from malware.

I have Windows 10 Home (32bit) installed and I cannot find a way to get Update, as you used to be able do, to HIDE the offending update. (THANKS Microsoft for removing functionality from Windows YET AGAIN).
I'm at my wits end with this. . I have asked about this problem before directly reporting the issue to Microsoft (Surprise surprise... NO RESPONSE. I'd get a better response from a brick wall). Seriously not happy; considering cutting my losses and reverting (AS I STILL HAVE MY INSTALL DISCS) to Windows 7 or moving to Linux. Way to go to p**s off users!

I just discovered this problem when Myrti and I were working on some other problems on my computer. I noted that I'd gotten an 'update failed' several times lately. It said 'Some updates could not be installed. The following updates were not installed. MS.NetFramework 1.1 Service Pack 1 Security Update for windows 2000, XP, Vista, 2008, Windows7 and Windows Server 2008R2 (KB953297).' The error code was 0X64C.

I checked back in my logs and found that my computer has been attempting this update since October 2009!

When I tried manually at the Microsoft site, it said I needed to upload ActiveXControl, which I did. It still couldn't successfully update that security.

I have the log. Would you like for me to attach? I just did it a few days ago.

Hi there
I'm having multiple problems and the one above has come up today as I was looking into how to enable automatic TomTom connection and also Alfa wifi.  The Alfa keeps saying that Relatek driver is not connected.  Diagnostics keep coming up with different reasons and the one above is the latest.  It varies daily and I need some advice as it is soul destroying.  Is someone can help I would be most grateful.

A:Driver updates aren't automatically installed when detected by Windows Update.

FWIW:  You should never...use Windows Update for drivers.  If the system is an OEM/name brand system (e.g., HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.) you should get drivers for the system from the respective system manufacturer's websitel.

I have tried using wmic and powershell as suggested in a number of posts.  None of the outputs include the full information under the Name column in View Update History.  wmic includes the URL for the knowledgebase article instead of the description.
The varies powershell scripts also do not produce the information under Name.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
