Is the kb976932 update really that important?

Q: Is the kb976932 update really that important?

Hi everyone, I have been having problems installing the kb976932 update for weeks now. I feel like I tried everything. Im about ready to take a sledge hammer to this thing!

My main question, is this really that important?

I am mainly trying to install a printer to my computer which is unsuccessful and one of the troubleshooting suggestion by the printer manufacturer is to make sure the Windows updates are installed. Idk if this could be the problem or not.

Preferred Solution: Is the kb976932 update really that important?

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: Is the kb976932 update really that important?

This is Service Pack 1, so it very well could be the answer. I'm not saying that it is because I can't know.

Here's an official Microsoft website for Service Pack 1:

Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Source: Information about Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2

The official Microsoft website for Service Pack 1 has a link to download Service Pack 1 from the Microsoft Download Center:

Download Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) from Official Microsoft Download Center

You'll see a big list of files to download. Here's some text that explains what each one is for:

Hey,

I'm trying to install update KB976932 (Windows Service pack 1 for 64bit) and KB982526 (Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1) but I keep getting error 800b100 which stops me from doing so.

I've tried deactivating my firewall; manually installing from the microsoft website; and using the system readiness tool but I keep getting the same error

I've attached log files and I believe some files are corrupt. How can I replace them?
Can anyone please help me out?

Thanks.

Hello,

I have been struggling with this error for the past 3 weeks. Every time my laptop attempts installation, I'd get Error 0x8024200D.

Time and again I've ran System Update Readiness Tool and attempted manual installation of Update KB976932 without success. Whenever I try to manually install, I'd receive the following: Error 0x80070002.

Several times I've ran SFC /SCANNOW command, and the results reveal there's some corrupt files, but could not be fixed by System File Checker.

I wish I could upload my .zip file of CBS log here, but it's far too big. Instead I'll just post a screenshot.

A:Windows Update KB976932 and Error 0x8024200D

Delete the oldest two CBSPersist files, then zip the folder and upload it.

The 0x8024200D error is usually caused by connectivity problems - what AV and Firewall are you using?

I have tried to install to SP1 in multiple ways, too many to list but am willing to try them all again. After reboot it gets to about 7%then says "sailure configuring service pack ... reverting changes". I have also tried installing the system update readiness tool but it returns with the same error 0x800f0826 Access is denied.

I recently got this laptop from my brother, no install recovery discs. Since it was his computer, i changed the account name and password. I am the only account on the computer and set to administrator. I think what happenned is when i changed from the old account name to the new account name it didnt update all the credentials so now it won't update. Avg won't turn on after i disabled italso bc it says i have insufficient user rights. PLEASE HELP!

Also in Action center won't check for updates error 80070005 (see attached)

A:Win 7 SP1 update (KB976932) won't install Error 0x800f0826

Your best bet would be to reinstall.
It's impossible to know what your brother may have done to the system, and what may be installed without your knowledge.
I would NEVER use a second-hand machine without a full reformat/reinstall no matter who it came from.

Faiing that, create a new administrator user account for yourself, and see if the problem exists there. If not, transfer your data to that account, and then delete the existing one.

I had 11 updates (and 1 optional) available today, some Win7, two for Office 2007.

All installed just fine, except SP1. To get the others to install, I left SP1 for last. So until SP1, Windows Update worked. The error info is at the bottom of the post.

Searching here, I found no matches for code 80010108. Searching Microsoft, there were hits related to Windows Update, and SP's, but the text talks about Vista, not Windows 7... thought the date of the posts are mostly 2011. The problem for the error code relates to needing the latest update agent. But other than SP1, all my other updates worked just fine today.... one of those updates should have been(?) the lastest update agent if I didn't have it already (or is this asking too much?)

Here is a link to one such post

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.

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.

Today I checked for updates in Windows Update and I saw the KB976932 which is Service Pack 1. Clicked to install the updates, then after 2 hours the updates have finished to install and I got a message that some of them failed to install, especially KB976932 (Error Code 8007000E). Before installing this update i had this written in System window from Control Panel [attached image]. And this means that I had already installed SP1. Now this update doesn't show anymore in Windows Update. In the System window it is still written Service Pack 1, but on Installed Updates window there is no KB976932 update. Do I need to install it manually ?

Microsoft released quality improvements to the servicing stack for all Windows 10 versions, the component designed to allow users to receive and install Windows updates.

All Windows 10 customers are advised to first update the Windows 10 servicing stack to the latest version before trying to install the KB4515384 and the KB4512578 cumulative updates. Click to expand...





Microsoft states in the servicing stack support document that:
Servicing stack updates improve the reliability of the update process to mitigate potential issues while installing the latest quality updates and feature updates.

hi
today i did check for new update
and the windows 8.1 updater found an important update
western digital techologies-other hardware-wd ses device

but i haven't western digital hard drivers ..it'a laptop with a ssd installed

did you notice such upate?


thanks

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.
Or are you using an USB HDD?

I have Secunia on my Acer Windows 8 laptop. According to latest scan today it's telling me I need an update for Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 4.x That I don't understand since I've updated the laptop every time updates have been offered unless Microsoft failed to send it. (However, I haven't undated to Windows 8.1 yet -- I always hang back on that kind of major update to see what happens with everybody else.) I might be savy about a heck of a lot of things to do with computers but I don't know anything about that particular program. I started to read some stuff on it on the net, however, there's so much disagreement on it I gave up trying to figure out what to do. I hope I can get some good advice on that issue here. HELP!

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.

Hey

Sorry if this sounds like a really amateur question, but on some websites I see links to update your drivers via a download, and since you're not installing any new hardware, what's the significance of downloading something onto one of your drivers?

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........??????

Hello everyone,

I have an problem with my Windows 7 Professional 64 bit system. My problem is similar to this thread but since it's old and one poster mentioned "do not necro-post" I decided to make a new thread.

OK, so I have a problem. When prompt to install an important update, I want to know what I am installing. So I click onto details. This image pops up.
. This problem occurs on other system also but I have rule out the Internet as an issue. I have tried with mobile broadband, direct connection to the modem, tethering with my iPhone (I got it when I worked for Apple sex months) and my Android (sorry, no Windows phone yet, they are too expensive considering my needs)

I am running a Windows 7 Professional 64 bit operating system on a home-built system that has this specification.
Motherboard:
ASRock G41M-GS3
CPU:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 2MB Cache 1 860 MHz X2 FSB @ 1066 MHz
RAM:
8 GB DDR2
GPU:
AMD Radeon HD 5450 or 6350 (the box says 5450 and the AMD update says 6350)

Any thoughts on troubleshooting?

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.

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.

You could:

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

2) Try shutting off the Windows Update service, clearning WU temp files, and then restarting the WU service, as in the Microsoft procedure quoted below:

1. Open Administrative Tools --- by clicking Start, Control Panel, System and Maintenance, and then Administrative Tools.

3. Right-click the Windows Update service, and then click Stop.

Good morning,

Several weeks ago I received an update for Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5. Unfortunately when WinPatrol asked permission to accept these new updates, I mistakenly clicked no.

I have looked for ways to undo my mistake: I checked my list of installed updates and found 2 Hotfixes for .Net Framework 3.5, KB953595 and KB958484. Also the Firefox addons window shows a new addition: .Net Framework Assistant 1.0. I have searched for the appropriate updates on the Microsoft Update website, but only became lost and confused.

I believe these .Net Framework updates are important for my computer and should be reinstalled correctly. However, I do not know which updates to uninstall nor the correct .Net update to reinstall.

Will someone please advise?

Let me give an example..

Proton, and fan next to it maybe could be neutron and so on. <--under here is the underlying fan of the first top fan.
Or a fan under a fan under a fan and so on. Would make it much easier if one is searching and reading the undelying things about the top thing you are studying.
Reason for underlying fans is to make it easier and not confusing when going back and forth in what you read.
And on the next fan you can have other underlying fans for the next topic of choosing that also ofc.

Is it possible to get this update?
