Important Update says it was cancelled, how do I download it?

Q: Important Update says it was cancelled, how do I download it?

Hi, I was looking through my update history and I noticed this:
 
I no longer get the option to download or install it even when I do a manual check for updates.  How can I go about fixing this?
 
On the other hand, how important is this really?  I have Avast! as my antivirus, is Windows Defender that critical to keep updated?
 
Thanks.

Hi windows8newb Even if avast! is your Antivirus, you can also use Windows Defender to scan your system, so it would be a good idea to keep it's definitions updated. Follow the instructions below please.System File Checker (SFC)Follow the instructions below to run a SFC scan on your system and to provide the CBS log in your next reply;On Windows Vista & 7, click on the Windows Start Menu, then enter cmd in the search box, right-click on the cmd icon and select Run as AdministratorOn Windows 8, drag your cursor in the bottom-left corner, and right-click on the metro menu preview, then select Command Prompt (Admin);On Windows 8.1, right click on the Windows logo in the bottom-left corner and select Command Prompt (Admin);Enter the command below and press on Enter;sfc /scannowNote: There's a space between "sfc" and "/scannow";Once the scan is complete, enter the command below and press on Entercopy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log "%userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt"A file called cbs.txt will have appeared on your Desktop. Upload the file on Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive and post the download URL for it here;Note: Please note that the CBS.log is volatile, which means that if you don't upload it after the SFC scan is completed, it won't contains the information from the scan anymore. So archive it and upload it as soon as you can.

A:vista wont download and important update

In order to fix this failed update, we must first clean up your .NET framework installation. Download and run this file. It will remove the .NET framework from your computer so that we can reinstall it later (and solve the non-installing update). My sister's laptop did the same, as well as our home desktop (failed update). But don't worry, it is very easy to fix.After running this cleanup tool, it will ask you to reboot. Please do so.Next, download and install this file. This will reinstall the .NET framework onto your computer.After another reboot, download and install this file. This will update the .NET framework to what it should be (what the automatic update was failing to do).Now, check Windows Update again, and see if anything shows up.

I am using the browser Mozilla Firefox which has not been upgraded for a year. When I attempt to manually upgrade, the file is designated as cancelled. I reload the file and the cancelled designation goes away, but the file will not open or run. This also occurs with other programs that I have attempted to download and run.
I am only (I think) running Microsoft Security Essentials for protection.

When I attempt to upgrade Firefox, the program searches for upgrades and continues forever with no results. I am using version 10 and the current version is at 18. I tried to just reload Firefox and I get the same results: the little icon spins and spins but never times out.

I tried to reset the download folder as per a solution that came from Firefox, but it had no effect.
My operating system is XP with the level 3 upgrade.

If you have a solution, please state it in English and not computereese.

Thank You
 

A:Solved: cannot download files which are immediately cancelled

Try downloading the new version of Firefox with Internet Explorer. Once you downloaded it, uninstall the old version from control panel and install the new version.

Using Windows Update

I accept the now "important update" to upgrade to Windows 10 from 8.1 from the updates and it proceeds to upgrade. I get the "Your update to Windows 10 is Ready" and reboot. It goes through the configuring update for Windows 10. Next is the Upgrade to Windows 10, Get Started. Downloads, accept the license terms, starts the upgrade and reboots. Configures updates, ... what? .... downloading windows 10 ? again?

Other times, after it reboots and continues to upgrade I get the usual Windows Update window with the update not installed stating that it was canceled. Canceled? What? By who, why? ??? (no error code)

I tried the "Get Windows 10" patch, same issue. I extracted the embedded product key (jelly bean or wmic path ..) and tried to run a fresh install, it doesn't accept the key.

Since this update process, at random, (no domain) I log in and get a temporary profile, yes on a local account.

This is actually a repeat of an old thread from 2007 but a solution never appeared because of two unanswered questions, at least, as far as I know. I would like an answer because I have this same problem. I am running Vista Home Premium 64bits. The thread goes like this: I cancelled a Windows Live Essentials 2011, KB2434419, update (ii's optional). No problem, the cancellation appears in the Update Installation History but not in the Updates Uninstalled List, so, I can't remove it. The questions never answered back then in 2007 were "Which update are we talking about" and "Is this Can this Update be removed by uninstalling it after install." Both of these are actually questions without the question marks. In my case I do not want to reinstall, I just want to remove the reference to in the Update Installation History. Has anyone had to solve this and, if so, how? Perhaps I should reinstall it and all the rest then remove them. Thanks...

A:Removing a cancelled update

Go to Windows Updates and search for updates. When you see the one you don't want right click it and select hide. You won't see it again unless you show hidden updates.

Hi

I updated my Windows and it said I had some updates that needed to be downloaded and installed. I went ahead and downloaded and installed them and was asked to restart my PC. When I restarted my PC, it said

"Preparing To Configure Windows. Please Do Not Turn Off Your Computer"

I waited for over an hour now and decided that something was wrong. I decided to restart my PC and everything was fine. Windows update didn't find any new updates so I checked my installed update history. It shows that those updates that I was suppose to install didn't install. The status for those updates show up as "Cancelled".

I was curious to know how do I download those specific updates (Security updates) and install them on my PC?

Here's another tricky one.
This important security update will not update. It is only 606Kb.
Microsoft says it is caused by a virus problem. I have Norton 360 installed. Norton say it is not a virus.
Microsoft say pay us $120 to fix it. I say I can't afford to pay that for something when I have no way of knowing exactly what the problem really is.

Hello all

When executing Windows Update, I experienced that one important update is not automatically selected to download and install.


I like to understand why this is?

Also I like to understand if I should always install all important updates, even the ones not by default selected?

In this example, the not selected update refers to MS09-054 security update. Is this a manual installed security update?
Does it not apply to me?

Thanks a lot in advance!

A:Windows Update, important update not selected

Not all users experience the issue that this update resolves. MS is providing you the oportunity to use the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" logic.

I applied the update even though I have no evidence that I need it. Yet.

Some updates will adversely affect some users. Not applying updates may adversely affect you.

What can you do? My advice - apply all updates. Unless you have a good reason not to.

A:I am very hesitant to update my P52 and also not sure I'll miss any important update or not. ><

I'm still a subscriber to the theory "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Whether it's OS updates for my iPhone or software updates for my computers, I tend to wait. Been burned too many times. In fact, I'm a bit annoyed with Windows 10 in that you can't stop the updates. I rarely update my Windows 7 machines in that everything works just fine. I'll wait until an update has been in the wind for months before applying it just to make sure.
 
Security updates are pretty important. Driver updates, not so much unless you're experiencing an issue.  BIOS updates are almost always a good thing, but still worth investigating before applying. 
 
I hope this helps.

A:Might Be Missing An Update That Could Be Important

Microsoft only publishes new updates for Windows on Tuesdays at 3am but unless if you don't install those updates those updates will be offered to you later if you choose to do so manually. Windows by default installs security important updates by automatically. To see if that update was installed go to the control panel select "Windows Update" then select "View Update History" Windows is great at managing updates on it's own you can also select not to automatically install Windows updates, and choose which ones to update and install. There is no need for 3rd party software to do this for you.

Hello,
I'am downloading very important files but I'm afraid that my computer might switch off because windows update gave me a notice that the computer will switch off after an update and the maximum amount of time you can postpone the computer to switch off is 4 hours (That's what I done). I will not be able to use the computer for more than 4 hours.
So this is what I did>> I think I turned windows update off by choosing the option of 'Never check for update (not recommended).

Now the question is> Will my computer switch off within 4 hours after I leave it?
If it will, then how can I make it not switch off.

PLEASE NOTE: The download is NOT resumable.
EDIT: I'm using Windows 7.

Thank you for reading.

A:[IMPORTANT] Windows Update

In my experience if you are still using the computer at the end of that 4 hours it will give you another warning and you will be able to postpone it again for another 4 hours. Then repeat process until the download is done. I am not sure if turning updates off will have stopped the countdown.

Windows Update has often put my system in some interesting situations, and I truly never want to update ever again. I recently reinstalled my system and the last time I did updates, my system prompted me to restart and was instead left hanging on the "shutting down" message for an hour, forcing me to shut it down improperly.

Truth is, I don't use any Microsoft apps except Windows Explorer.. and I only browse sites that I know are generally safe. Instead of using Internet Explorer I use Firefox with NoScript, Ghostery, WOT, Adblock Plus, and I've even updated the main plugins (Java, etc). I also have Malwarebytes and Norton as well.

I've also never understood the importance of driver updates either, my system seems to run the same with or without them. I'm even beginning to think that updating is causing my system to work harder in the background, rather than when it was in factory condition.. but is this true? So many questions...

A:Is Windows Update important?

You have some good anti-malware software and keep Java updated, yet you fail to see the significance of keeping the operating system updated........??????

A:wd ses device in the important update

I didn't get one. Did you install the SSD or did it come with your PC? If you installed it, it could be that the drivers from your old(possibly a WD?) and any registry keys are picked up by Windows update. I've noticed with Ccleaner, it shows a program that is already uninstalled sometimes in Cleaner Applications tab. I then have to go into the registry and do a recursive search for left over keys so it will stop showing up.

Hi there. Please see the attached. I have been unable to instlal this Windows Security Update for some time. My computer always shows that it is available install when I want to shut down my computer, but no such luck.
I don't know why it wont let me. I don't even know if I have Office Power Point.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks.
 

A:Cannot Install 'Important' Security Update

I have no idea what may be causing your problem, but you could try getting the update from the Windows Catalog site and see what happens; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323166/en-us

If this works, you will be able to download an .exe file which you just doubleclick on to install. Be sure to read the instructions before using this method.

Alternatively, you could check your Add/Remove list first, just in case the update is already there, or you could run the Secunia Online Inspector, which will confirm whether or not the patch is missing. You will need an up to date version of Sun Java before the Inspector will run; http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/online/

Hello,

Yesterday my laptop had an update for me, so I attempted to install it. However, when it was done I was told that the installation failed. I restarted the computer and attempted to install it again, but it still failed. I looked into more detail on what I was installing, which was Microsoft .NET Framework 4 KB2468871, and went to the site it was based on and attempted to install it from there. When the setup came up however, I recieved this message:

"KB2468871v2 does not apply, or is blocked by another condition on your computer."

I'm not entirely sure what this means, and since this is apparently an important update for my laptop, I ask if there is a way I can solve the problem (also it's getting irritating to have my laptop keep on reminding me to update something that fails to update).

Thank you.

P.S. I don't know if this helps, but my laptop has Norton 360.

A:Important Update for Windows 7 keeps failing

Norton may be blocking it, especially seeing this "KB2468871v2 does not apply, or is blocked by another condition on your computer."

When Windows 8.1 pro starts up a message saying Windows Update. Important updates are available Go to PC, it stays very briefly.

Checking Windows updates it says no updates so I checked for updates and it found none, I have Windows update to Install update automatically.

Has any one else had this message or know what the cause is?

Hello Forum,

One of my Windows updates (one of nine) failed earlier, but when I opened up my Update window again to see if I could retry, it doesn't give you the option to do it (first time in five years with this computer it has happened - ALL my updates have been successful). It shows the failed update in the Update History, but does not give you the option to install it again. How can I try to install that update again even though I can't locate the option to do it? Thank you.

This is for you early users of Win 8; http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/advisory/2755801

The vulnerability is 'known to be under active attack' so, if you haven't already got this via automatic update, you need to get it now.

Hi Desmodus


You could:

1) Ignore the failed update for a while & expect a patched update to fix it in a week or so, or -->

I don't know which machine you have, but in general Windows updates drivers and not a BIOS. You should update your BIOS if you are exibiting any of the symptoms that the update addresses.

I know this isn't the 'Email' section. However, more people watch this section so I'm posting here. I started to experience 'Mail' problems in my new, (Jan.), notebook with Win8. The emails I sent were going into the Outbox folder & remaining there. I figured out how to delete them by turning off the Wi-Fi connection. But then someone in the forum told me about updating my apps. I hadn't physically updated any apps since I bought the notebook. Suffice to say after the 'Mail' app had been updated everything started to work ok plus new features which made it easier to operate. So important to update all your apps!!!!

A:Important to update 'MAIL' app & other apps.

Hello Robin,

Yes indeed. It's important to keep one's Store apps in Windows 8 updated to keep them patched with the latest bug and security fixes. As you discovered, they may even stop working properly if not kept updated.
