BSOD after installing new Windows 10 updates 08/13/2016

Q: BSOD after installing new Windows 10 updates 08/13/2016

The problem seemed to have started when I downloaded and installed the new Windows 10 security updates. Nothing really triggers the BSOD, and it normally happens about 5 minutes from booting Windows to the Desktop. I just uninstalled the updates and so far so good. I wan to make sure that it was the updates and not something else (Driver, 3rd party program). I actually BSOD'd while trying to submit this ticket. Thank you for your help.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

Just downloaded the newest HP Image containing Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2016 for our HP t630 Thin Clients and tried to install the cumulative Windows Update April 2017 KB4015217: 1.

When booting up, Windows Update installation screen runs successfull up to 99%, then displays: we couldn't complete the updates, undoing changes. Eventlog shows error code 0x800F0922 Tried installing previous cumulative update KB4016635 with the same results. Never had this problem with Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2015. Anyone out there with the same problems or any ideas fixing this error?

It might be too big while unpacking in the temporary folders in the Ramdrive.Try to change the size of the HP RamDisk under the Control Panel (or if not enough to change the TEMP Paths).After the successful installation it is recommended to change the RamDisk back to it's default value.

I have managed to achieve the BSOD quite a lot, and have tried re-installing Windows 7 x64 on my computer three times today.

I have received the BSOD:

after trying to reformat my F: drive.
Uninstalling my Nividia drivers for a new one
After using Firefox for a while it just won't open and BSOD follows shortly after
I believe after installing Windows Live applications it startes to give me BSOD

After the first BSOD I start to get the error message:
Check filesums or somehting about the computed sums is not correct.

Hi and welcome to sevenforums

can you get into win 7? If so could you go to your windows\minidump dir and find the dump files for the bsod. they have a *.dmp extension. zip them and upload so we can take a look at them.

In case you need help. When replying click on the icon shaped like a paperclip (to attach) browse to the dump file, click upload and close when done.

I have service pack 1 with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I thought it was my PSU previously, so I replaced that after it burnt out my old mobo. I've now replaced my mobo and have checked that my PSU is outputting the right voltages. I'm still experiencing blue screens, typically when I'm installing programs. Ran Memtest for multiple cycles with each stick of RAM and it checked out fine. .DMP files included as well as performance check.

Any help is super appreciated, been a frustrating few months as I replace part after part.

A:BSOD when installing Windows Updates (also other times)

It's looking like your other hardware failures may have had a negative impact on your ram.
The bsod quotes a memory management error.
I would check it by running memtest overnight. (unless it immediately starts spitting out errors then you know right away.)

Hello, everyone. First post here and thank you in advance to anyone offering assistance. I'll start with some background information.

I've just recently obtained a computer that was still running Windows XP Pro without any Service Packs installed. I originally had trouble installing the updates because I was receiving an error that said something along the lines of BITS 2.0 and WinHTTP 5.1 couldn't be installed. After quite a bit of searching online I fixed the problem by changing the permissions settings in the registry.

After that was fixed I was rather relieved because I figured I would finally be able to update the computer to SP2. After installing several Windows Updates I restarted the computer only to receive a blue screen of death. The exact error was:

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xF7C30C86, 0xA22D9CB0,0x00000000)

I then started searching what could be causing the STOP error. I looked online again and found malware was the cause of the error it seemed. So I followed the advice in the other thread and downloaded Look2Me-Destroyer, F-Secure BlackLight, KillBox, ATF Cleaner and AVG Anti-Spyware. I ran them all, and deleted two high risk trojans with AVG. Next, I scanned with BlackLight and was given the following message from the log:

So...my brand new laptop is failing to update Windows 8, continually giving me a DPC Watchdog Violation. I have no idea why (or what that even means!). I'm not particularly tech savvy. A quick Google brought me here, I'm still unsure what I'm dealing with, but hopefully someone here can help/guide me through the issue?

I have read the BSOD posting instructions and uploaded the the debugging zip below. The laptop is an HP Pavilion 15-p144na and was new out of the box last night. Spec:

Windows 8 x64
AMD Radeon 7

I uninstalled some pre-installed bloat, like Wild Tangent Games and CyberLink YouCam, etc. All I have subsequently installed is Chrome, Malwarebytes and HTC Sync Manager (to get a driver to tether my HTC One; have then removed the Sync Manager immediately after). Having done all this I attempted to update Windows at 8:20pm and had issues with it crashing three or four times up until 2:45am when I gave up, frustrated, and went to bed.

Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks.

I recently wiped my hard drive with dban using the autonuke option. It ran fine and finished sucesfully. I then installed windows 7 home premium x64 on that same hard drive. That also ran fine. I then updated through windows update, and some updates did install, inluding service pack 1. The bsod happens when running automatic updates in windows. It downloads all the updates fine, but when it gets to installing the last few, or at least from what I can tell since the progress bar is almost full, the bsod happens. It says bad pool header 0x019 etc. Malware bytes free trial premium was running while installing the updates.

A:BSOD when installing windows updates, error 0x019

mvac.sys appears to be the issue which is part of malwarebytes. I've never known Malwarebytes causing issues.
It might be due to you have the free trial of premium which we always recommend you disable.

The best option I can think of is to uninstall Malwarebytes altogether and then install it again by following these settings.

I installed 285.62 P08 Nvidia Driver from the Dell webpage two days ago and it was fine and everything was good after the restart from the installation. After finishing up my session, i noticed that there is a window update so i shut down and left the computer to do the updating on it's own.

Today, I switched on my computer to look at my timetable for today and after that put it to sleep mode. After "waking" it up, I was met with a BSOD after like 5 minutes of use. I then decided to system restore to before i did the updates. It still BSOD albeit it took a longer time before that happened. Right now im using Safe mode + Networking to type this message out. (The computer does not seem to BSOD in safe mode so far)

I did the steps listed but i could not get the perfmon step working. "An error occured while attempting to generate the report"

I used the Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade CD to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 (32 bit). The installation was successful through the .NET upgrade, but I had problems once I installed the (57) updates. The first time I went through the process, the system froze, I had to restart in safe mode a couple of times, etc.

I finally restored the system to the state it was in before the .NET upgrade (the first restore point available - the restore to the second restore point failed). I then let the system do the .NET upgrade and tried to install the (57) updates again. The system again crashed with the dump that I am attaching. The update information shows that the updates failed and they are now queued to be installed again.

I upgraded from Windows XP SP3 to Windows 7 Enterprise, installed the drivers of every device that needed one, including that of the nVidia GEForce 210 graphic card, which I downloaded from the nVidia official website. Then, I installed updates from Windows Update and some other needed programs, and in the end, GTA San Andreas and Off-Road Drive. Started playing GTA and after some seconds there is this BSDO and computer restarts. Tried it with Off-Road Drive, the same. I will attach the dump files created from the PC, but I think it is something related to the graphic card or graphic card driver, anyways, since it is annoying and I am bit confused, it would be of really great help if you guys could give me an idea.

I am hoping someone can provide some assistance in getting rid of this BSOD problem.

Here is what happened.

I was using two driver update programs: One called Driver Booster 2 by Iobit and the other called Slimdrivers.

I updated various drivers including Nvidia which I had previously uninstalled but it kept popping up so I just let it go. The next thing I know, after that is installed and there were no more drivers left to install, I ran Windows Update and it also wanted to installed Nvidia again. I didn't have much choice in the matter...before I knew it, it was installing and I had to restart my computer. When the computer turned on again, I used it for a little while then it started to overheat something terrible. The computer was so hot I thought it was going to start on fire. Almost as soon as it started overheating, I got the BSOD and within a second it restarted or shut down. I can't remember which. The fan was running at top speed but that still wasn't enough. I could have cooked an egg on the backside of this thing.

So the next day, I started the computer up again and I uninstalled Nvidia completely using Iobit's Uninstaller to remove all traces of it in my computer. But the other problem I have now is that it still runs dangerously hot within a few hours.

I've uploaded the zip file as per the instructions. There must be some kind of conflict going on.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

A:BSOD after installing NVidia updates and other driver updates

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup program before you upload another zip.

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

Thanks in advance for the help

Good morning everyone,

I am once again having to ask for help here because I've been unable to install the Patch Tuesday updates released July 12th. (I received the "Updates available" notification yesterday afternoon, July 13th). WU just keeps searching endlessly, and after 2 hours, I restarted the computer to stop the process. (It could not be stopped in Task Manager).

(All day yesterday, July 13th, my CPU kept hovering in the 50% - 60% usage range both off-line and on-line. The only way I could get it to return to normal was what I did in Item # 2 shown below).

Also, NO error codes are being seen either.

Things I have tried thus far:

1. Ran full scans, including for rootkits with my ESET Smart Security, MBAM Premier, and SAS programs. NO issues found.

2. Opened Control Panel > Windows Updates, and changed the existing setting (i.e. Notify me of updates, but let me decide to download and install) to "Never check for updates". I then restarted the computer.

3. Ran the sfc /scannow command. NO issues reported.

4. Ran the SURT tool. The dialog box opened indicating it was initializing and said something about looking for updates. When I checked the computer several hours later, the dialog box said something like, "Installation complete". I closed the box.
However, none of the 10 Important updates (in this month's updates) were installed when I checked the WU list of installed updates.

Hello All,
I have a laptop that I've been trying to install updates on for the past seven days.  However, no matter what I seem to do, Windows Update shows the "Checking for updates" progress bar with the green marquee.  Here is what I've tried:

1.  Let it check for updates for two days continuously.
2.  Ensured that Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is activated.
3.  Made sure that the two services (BITS and Windows Update) are enabled and running.
4.  Reinstalled Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (twice now), and tried to run updates on a clean install.
5.  Made sure that the computer can connect to the internet.
6.  Tried AutoPatcher (on the previous install), which could download the updates, but would hang on installing them.

I'm running sfc /scannow to see if it finds anything, but this is currently a fresh install.  The only drivers installed are the ones that worked from install, and no new programs have been installed.

Are updates currently just broken for Windows in general, or specific versions of Windows (such as 7)?
Thanks in advance.

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?

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,
These other links do prompt you to download as soon as you click on them just to give you a heads up

Then manually install KB3172605 main article page with all versions,
Win-7 32 bit

Good evening everyone,

My issue is with today's 'Patch Tuesday' Windows Updates.

[System: Win7 Home Premium SP1 x64]. Computer is a standalone, not on any network, and used only by me.

Description of problem:

There were something like 14 - 16 important updates in today's batch. Most of them did NOT install. (Please see attached screenshots showing this + my current WU settings, at the bottom of this post).
NO error codes are being displayed. WU just keeps saying it is downloading updates. The 'download progress' remains at "0%" the entire time, however.

Resolutions attempted thus far:

1. Ran CCleaner, then tried to update again. No success.
2. Restarted computer 3 times, then attempted to update, without success.
3. UNCHECKED all updates except for 3, and tried updating just those 3.
Problem remains.
4. On the 3rd attempt, after waiting 15 minutes, I cancelled the download/installation.
5. Ran scans with ESET Smart Security (v9), MBAM Premier, and SAS. No issues were found.

My question: Is there an explanation for, & a resolution to, this problem?

The only potential explanation I could think of is the Windows Update servers are too busy???
(Don't recall having encountered this type of problem before).

Thank you for your for time and any help!

Hello, Peeps.

Windows 7 X64.

The following Recommended Updates were offered today. I had previous information on all except the last four, which I Googled today.
Most are, it seems, repetitions of the Windows 10 Update stuff that many of us avoided all those months ago. So the hassle would seem to be ongoing. However, the last one, KB3184143 is an uninstaller for several of those annoying very same W10 Updates. Odd. Giveth with one hand, taketh away with the other. A couple of the last four seem OK, and (KB3181988) I have been having problems with sfc/ scannow reporting 'corrupt files but unable to repair' for a while now. Maybe this will sort them out.
The information below is taken from several sources, and the credit belongs mostly to others. I'm just passing it on.

KB2545698 - (Internet Explorer 9)
KB2592687 - Remote Desktop Protocol
KB2923545 - Remote Desktop Protocol.

A:Windows Updates offered today, 10.12.2016. Most W10 stuff and teleme.


GWX has ended.
MS even issued a patch to remove it from Win7-SP1 systems, KB3184143
If you want to subscribe to perpetual paranoia about getting Win10 on your Win7 box, that's up to you.

Also, the current version of KB2952664 has nothing to do with either GWX or telemetry:

There is no GWX or upgrade functionality contained in this update.

As for the rest, I'll leave that to other members more interested in this topic than I am.
For the record, though, Apple and Google also use telemetry.
Telemetry cuts both ways -- without aggregate data about how an OS performs in the real world, MS cannot be expected to code needed security and stability patches for Windows or its other major software (such as Office) that will perform properly.
I find it ironic that some of the folks who most loudly decry "telemetry" are the same folks who are first to complain about a "bad" patch on Patch Tuesday. (That's not directed at you personally or anyone else in particular.)

There is a definitive solution. If one destroys all of one's electronic and analog communication and computing devices, physically cuts all cables, fiber-optic lines and other connections to the outside world (not just the internet), and cuts up all of one's credit/debit cards, one can be reasonably safe.

<sorry, it's just that this discussion has grown a bit tiresome over the years. nothing personal.>

Thanks for posting your list.
And I hope you get ... Read more

I'm planning to reinstall windows 10 and I know that it will remove Windows updates etc. Will it also remove Microsoft Office 2016 updates? Thanks

A:Will Reinstalling Windows 10 affect Microsoft Office 2016 updates?

That depends on how you plan on reinstalling Windows 10.

Do it this way and you lose everything, including all your data files and Office 2016 completely, including updates. You will have to reinstall everything:
Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

Do it this way, and you only refresh Windows 10 itself and nothing else should be affected, including Office 2016:

Microsoft confirms no more Windows 10 feature updates in 2016; two coming in 2017

Microsoft published a TechNet blog post on Tuesday regarding what's new in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. In the article, the company confirmed that it has two feature updates planned for 2017, but no more for this year.

Based on feedback from organizations moving to Windows 10, this will be our last feature update for 2016, with two additional feature updates expected in 2017.

The news is right in line with current rumors. Tuesday's Anniversary Update would be the one feature update for this year, and Redstone 2 - the codename for the next major Windows 10 update - isn't slated to arrive until April 2017. Redstone 3 is rumored as well, but without any release timing, so with today's news, it's presumably late 2017.

It's also in line with what Microsoft has already said. Back in May, the firm said that it would be pushing two feature updates for Windows 10 every year.

The obvious question that you're probably asking is, if Microsoft said that it would release two updates per year, why would the company only release one this year? Well, when Microsoft says the word 'year', it could mean a calendar year, or it could mean a fiscal year, which would be over at the end of June. With that in mind, the firm has released two major updates for Windows 10 every year, and is on pace to do so, even with Redstone 2 coming in April.

After having installed the Windows 7 04/2016 updates today, I found that I couldn't start Firefox anymore - it just hangs and uses up 1 core. Then I tried IE - hangs and eats up another core. Same for Chrome and Opera. Then I began to suspect EMET and started
Word 2010, Adobe Reader, Thunderbird, WL Mail - all the same. Applications not opted into EMET continued to work.
I then tried to deactivate EMET's mitigations one by one and found that I had to disable "EAF" mitigation to use my apps again.

(I didn't yet try to find out which of the updates is the root of this by uninstalling 1 by 1, since WU took so long (hours) to find updates _at all_ that I haven't yet dared... Maybe later I'll try to install the updates manually on another machine and
see if I find sth.)
Is it just me who's seeing this?

System: 32bit Windows 7 Enterprise, EMET 5.5, all updates from WU (except MSRT) installed.

To give you some back story, I built my computer the end of August 2012. Ran Smoothly. I decided to get a 60 gig SSD to be the partition that stored Windows. I didnt have much stored on the Main HD so I deleted my original 2TB HD and tried installing on the SSD... found that the SSD was bad and sent it back. Decided just to stick with the 2TB HD. Had some issues installing windows back onto the HD as it would just hang up. Finally managed to get windows installed, had some "Not genuine" issues but that resolved after multiple restarts. That brings me to where I am at today and I feel as though the system has been getting worse. I would normally be fine with just a clean install but with all the issues I had with that initially I am very skeptical of trying it again. I have 5 important updates and 7 optional updates all of which do not install. The Installer just sits on Downloading updates and I have left it overnight with still no result. I am not sure if this is even my main issue but I am beyond the point of figuring it out myself so any help would be appreciated

I downloaded the System Readiness Tool and it Ran. I tried running the sfc /scannow in Admin cmd prompt mode and get a "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation" I attached my CBS file. Any help you could give or guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

A:Windows Updates Not Installing : Error Unknown (Sits on Installing)

Hello and welcome Faticus just as matter of interest why did you give up on the SSD? was not it under warranty?

That is heck of a drive to be installing on mate just how did you prepare it for the install?

You can run a chkdsk in Windows too > My Computer > right click on the drive > Properties > Tools > Check now - then follow the points in my pic.
You then reboot and it will start a chkdsk (in DOS).

My sister is having difficulty with her Dell desktop. She apparently installed a few updates a couple of days ago, but didn't restart her computer until today. What ends up happening now is that she keeps getting the BSoD right before the Windows XP loading screen.

This is what the BSoD says:



*** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xC87895DD, 0x805D16D3, 0x0000000)

When I try to boot in Safe Mode (normal, networking, you name it) the last file that attempts to load is mup.sys, then the same Blue Screen.

The same result will occur when I press Last Known Good Configuration.

I might have to reformat her HDD. However, she doesn't want to lose her music, so I'm hoping there's other alternatives.

I'm assuming the recovery console will have to be involved. I just don't know what commands I'll need to enter. And I have no idea what update my sister installed on her PC.


A:BSoD After Installing Updates

Hi A, You can do a repair from the recovery console if you have an XP cd. This is happening to 1000s of people after updates, so it's getting quite familiar to us here. Heres a link with a list of ten things you can do first before a reinstall.


If you decide to repair it as I suggested make sure you run the correct repair so that you do not lose any data on your hard drive. If you need further help just let me know.

I was in the middle of installing some Microsoft Updates when I got the BSoD shown in the attachment.
I don't remember exactly what all of the updates were for, but I do know that there were some driver updates for a couple plotters. I'm pretty sure that one of those is what is giving me problems.
When I try to "Start Windows Normally" I get the BSoD and end up back at the "How do you want to start Windows" black screen. If I try to "Start in Safe Mode" I get to the Windows login screen. However, my attempts to login with the correct username/password have failed.
Here is what I am thinking is my problem. Yesterday, the IT guy we hired to switch us over to a new Server machine finished up. Our usernames remained the same, the password went from xxxxxx to Xxxxxx1, and our Network Domain(?) name changed.
I do not believe a restore point was set up for the new Server setup.
A couple of questions: At the Safe Mode login screen, is it still trying to "login" to the old network? If so, my new password is wrong and if my old password is the correct one, the Server doesn't exist to login to.
I was able to boot from the XP cd, but when I tried to repair XP I got the BSoD again.
Any suggestions as to what my options are at this point? I know I probably need to disable some drivers to fix the BSoD, but don't know how to get into Windows.
Thanks for any input you might have.
