Can't download SURT tool to fix...?

Q: Can't download SURT tool to fix...?

For the last two months I have been having to reinstall the same win updates over & over?-
Now its the Windows Malicious Software Removal tool that keeps coming up, and as soon as I install it
the updt icon immediately pops up saying updates are ready for your computer (over & over)?

I tried to download the Win7 32-bit SURT tool from your forum link, but it says it's Not available?

Preferred Solution: Can't download SURT tool to fix...?

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.)

A: Can't download SURT tool to fix...?

The most likely reason for the MSRT to repeat is that it crashed at some point.
The most likely reason for that, is that the machine is infected.
Try this link for the CheckSUR tool...

Download System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 (KB947821) [October 2014] from Official Microsoft Download Center

(direct link - 32-bit Windows 7CheckSUR)

Also...

Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM Premium' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

Quarantine everything it finds

I understand that this SURT is supposed to resolve the eternal "searching for updates" so I would be extremely please if someone could tell me where this marvel can be found
Thanks a lot for your time

A:where can I find SURT tool to kick w7 updates

I don't know about SURT but the following will resolve the Windows update problem.

Follow these instructions exactly.
First, set Windows Updates to never check for Updates.
Next reboot your computer, then install KB3020369, if not installed.
Then install KB3172605.

Windows updates should return to normal. You can then reset your updates to automatically check for updates if desired

Please help me in solving a windows update failure. I have windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64.

The two windows updates that fail are
System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 (KB947821)
any Microsoft.NET framework both 4.5.2 (KB2901983) and 4.6.1 (KB3102433)

I found a similar thread and followed the steps in it, but no joy.
Performed SFC /scannow, but the WRP did not find any integrity violations. I tried to run the SURT tool (same tool as KB947821) by a manual download and run but it reports the "hotfix failed to install". So I don't have a SURT tool log to submit.

What's the next step?

(I have not been able to succesfully download/install Service Pack 1, which is the problem I will eventually ask about, and every option I see for SURT has an SP, which I don't have at all.)

ETA - Sorry guys, just saw I wasn't reading things properly.

A large number of PC users today use USB drives to install Windows operating system thanks to dirt cheap USB drives and plenty of free tools out there for creating bootable USB drives.

Back in Windows XP and Vista days, most users were not even aware of the fact that it?s possible to install Windows operating system from USB drives. The method became popular with the release of Windows 7 Beta in January 2009. Plenty of free utilities have been released since than with variety of options to help users create bootable USB to install Windows operating system from USB drive.

After the release of Windows 7 RTM in October 2009, Microsoft also released its official Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool to help users easily make USB drives bootable and then install Windows from the bootable USB drive.

My computer has almost become unusable, very sick. I want to do a clean Win 7 install; took out the Win 7 64 operating disks I've had for several years. CD drive also very sick, broken. Searches reveal ways to install without a CD ? downloaded Windows 7 USB Download Tool. Have no idea how to choose an ISO (see attached); this process is complex.
Thought I was a fairly advanced user but feel as though I'm an imbecilic beginner. Thanks in advance for your help. ec

A:Win 7 USB Download Tool

The 1st thing you have to do is download the iso file to your computer.

You choose the iso file of the version you need, in your case Windows 7 Pro Service Pack 1 either 32 or 64 bit, look in Computer>Properties it will tell you what bit version you`re running.

64 bit http://software-download.microsoft.c...bc83c30b5aba1a

32 bit http://software-download.microsoft.c...cd80a8f8cc1197

These 2 links should work to download the iso file.

Anyway, I go to run to tool and it gets to the part where it says formatting and then it says something like "we are unable to copy your files, check the USB drive and the ISO and try again."

Windows ISO Downloader is a free program for Windows that allows you to download Windows operating system ISO images from Microsoft servers.

Downloading an ISO image of the operating system that is already installed on devices you are working with is always a good idea in case you need to reinstall the operating system or repair it.

Microsoft for whatever reason makes it difficult to grab official ISO images of versions of Windows that it supports currently.


You have to dig deep to find official and direct download links of Windows ISO images on Microsoft's website.

One of the better solutions is offered on the company's Techbench website, but it only highlights downloads for Microsoft's newest operating system Windows 10.

We have revealed in the past how you can modify the page using development tools that are part of all modern web browsers to display ISO download links for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 as well.

Windows ISO Downloader is a free program for Windows that does more or less the same. It displays the available operating systems that you can download ISO images from -- those are Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and Windows 10 Insider Preview -- and loads a form that looks identical to the one found on the Techbench website.

A:How to download Snippng Tool?

Unless you have Vista Home Basic, it will be included with the Operating System. That means you don't have to download it, it should already be in Start > All Programs > Accessories. If it isn't there you may have to activate it.
Go to Control Panel
Open Program and Features (you may have to click Programs first)
In the task pane on the left, click Turn Windows features on or off.
Give the necessary permission to UAC
Check Tablet PC Optional Components.
Click OK.
Wait for it to do it's configuration.

If you DO have Vista Home Basic, you can't use the Snipping tool as it isn't distributed separately from Windows. You'd have to use the old fashioned way: screenshots and a graphics editor.

What is your USB drive or drives? How big is the .iso file? A FAT32-formatted drive has a single-file size limit of 1 Byte less than 4GB, otherwise it needs to be NTFS-formatted. Simply copying an .iso file shouldn't present a problem but working with that file such as burning a CD or DVD from it requires a program that can do it. An .iso file is used to create an exact copyof the original disc when that disc is not available but there are methods of doing things with the file to a USB Thumb/Flash drive.

Hello there,

I really hope you can help like a couple of years ago (Smitfraud/Zlob).

I have recently been cleaning out old files on my computer in the hope of speeding things up. during this process I mistakenly donwloaded Reg Tool. On checking on the internet about this program I found it was disguised spyware. I removed the program using Add/Remove Programs but my computer (and especially internet access) is now running incredibly slowly. I have scanned with a variety of anti-spyware (Avast, AVG, SpyBot, Malwarebytes) but nothing much is found and it has made no difference to performance. I tried to run SDFix but the program did not finish and would not produce a log.

I hope you can help figure out what is happening. I have included the DDS and RootRepeal reports. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thanks very much in advance...

I can only select "A:\ (PRL) - 1.2MB Free". The program will recognize my USB thumb drive, but it's not big enough. Windows itself does recognize the external HD but the USB/DVD tool does not. This is all being done through mac 10.7.4. Any thoughts? This may require a broad range of experience to solve, so have at it ya'll.

A:USB/DVD Download Tool won't recognize my external HD

It isn't a flash drive or a DVD drive, so it shouldn't be recognized. That tool is used for making bootable install media, not as a destination for the installed OS. Besides, if it is a USB device, you aren't going to be running a Windows OS from it anyway, so you'd be wasting your time in the long run.

Presently IE9 beta's built-in downloader takes over all the downloads and puts them into the C:users:username:downloads.

Is there a way to disable it so that I can use other download managers?

I've never quote seen this problem, but I'm trying to burn the ISO for Windows 7 with the Microsoft download tool, and it can't find the dvd drive. Unfortunately the tool does not give you the option to search for it.

The only thing I can see that might be it is in Device Manager it shows up as a CD-ROM. Yet the drive functions and burns fine. I just upgraded to latest firmware. Drive is Asus DRW-1814BLT.

Thanks.

A:Windows 7 Download tool cannot see my drive

Once you have the ISO downloaded, also download ImgBurn and select Burn Image to Disk, browse to ISO file and attach it make sure it lists it as bootable, then burn slowly 4x with Verify.

ImgBurn never fails to burn bootable ISO correctly.

Because my satellite internet will take ages (like 80 hours or something) to download SURT, would I be able to download it onto a USB (via WIFI from my town's library, onto my laptop) and then install/run it on my home desktop computer?

Please forgive if this is a stupid question

A:can I run SURT from a USB stick?

You can - but I'd advise copying it to the desktop and running that copy, unless it's USB3, as it's a very large file.

I installed(Run instead of Save) SURT from a link posted by Brink but I cannot locate where it was filed.

A:Installed SURT...where is it?

Selecting Run puts the file in the Temporary Internet Files area.

Once the SURT has run, that is it. It has done all that it is going to do. There is no start menu entry and there is no user interface.

After upgrading from Vista to Windows 7, my CD DVD drive stopped recognizing DVDs. It seems to have no problems with CDs.

I tried running the troubleshooter built in to Windows (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting\Hardware and Sound - Playing and burning CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray discs), but it won't download and run.

The error message is:

An error occurred while downloading the troubleshooter.

An unexpected error has occurred. The troubleshooting wizard can't continue.

The details are:
Package ID: CDDVDDiagnostic
Path: Non-local package
Error Code: 0x80091007
Source: Download
User: (My User ID on the computer)
Context: Elevated

This happens every time I try to run this troubleshooting tool. Rebooting hasn't made any difference.

My system is an HP Pavilion DV9736CA, Intel Core 2 Duo T5450, Windows 7 Home Premium 6.1.7600, TSST TS-L632N DVD drive.

Any suggestions?

There's several Javascript Repair tools which seem to be available for download, though none are listed on CNET, which I know is safe.

Are any of those tools safe to download?

Because there's no Javascript PLUGIN on my system, so I assume the script got corrupted. Any time a site requires Javascript to work, it doesn't work for me, instead "nothing" happens (neither in FireFox nor IE). I was hoping one of those repair tools might help.

At least one of those tools is advertised via the Google Ad Bar - does that mean it's safe?

A:Safe to download any Javascript Repair Tool?

Verify your Java installation and download the latest version of JRE and plug-in.

Hey there -

So long story short, I had a hard drive crash on me recently, and although I could back up my files to a secondary hard drive - I did it using the windows Backup and Restore utility - I can't find a way to access them.

Somewhere else on these forums, I believe I found a thread that said that combined use of the USB/DVD download tool and the Windows 7 64-bit Repair Disk could allow me to boot into my new hard drive and recover the files from my secondary hard drive.

However, I'm having a problem that I haven't quite seen answered in any form that seems applicable to my situation: that is, when I try to use the USB/DVD tool on the repair disk, I get a message saying that the .iso is not a valid ISO file.

How can I go about fixing this?

A:Problem with the USB/DVD Download tool and Repair Disk for USB

That tool is for the Win7 installation ISO only, and sometimes will only work if it ISO is downloaded from MS.

In your case I would download the Repair CD ISO here: System Repair Disc - Create

Then burn to CD by left clicking the ISO to use Windows Image Burner which is fine in Win7, or use ImgBurn at 4x speed.

If you need to use flash stick, best method I've found is to install Ultra ISO trial version, on File tab Open ISO, on Bootable tab Write Image, Format, then Write.

Here is how to copy out files using Repair CD: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Or use Paragon Rescue CD: Rescue Kit Free Edition | PARAGON Software Group - free partition software, hard disk partitioning

Dragging and dropping is always the best method unless you're backing up on a schedule and want incremental backups of only what has changed. Otherwise you get way more than you want.
