Q: (avg or) win 7 security blocking program installs+updates

I tried installing admuncher and update to Acrobat Pro 8.0. With Acrobat, when I select update from the help menu nothing happens. I figure this must be avg av software, or a win 7 security feature that is blocking program installs+updates (my guess it is more likely Win 7). I don't know where to start to solve problem. Only account on Win 7 is my admin account.

Preferred Solution: (avg or) win 7 security blocking program installs+updates

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.)

Hi all,

I do a lot of consulting in my spare time to home users. I often end up getting their computers secure and ready for use. I was wondering if anyone knows of a program that is intelligent enough to scan the system and apply windows updates as needed performing reboots, and resuming installation.

Basically I am looking for a standalone utility that can perform these actions until windows is completely patched. I have seen proprietary solutions for this that companies like Geek Squad use and was wondering if there is a commercial solution that provides similar functionality.

I am not interested in a program that collects updates and downloads them for building into images or SXL, but a nice little app that connects to microsoft and downloads the needed updates and restarts as needed.

If anyone has heard of any such solution I would be most interested in hearing your feedback.

Thank you!

This is an inconvenient delay, not anything serious. Running Windows 7, if it makes a difference.

Issue: Microsoft Security Essentials auto-updates block Microsoft Updates until MSE is finished.

Description: I have Microsoft Update (or Windows Update, whichever it's known as in 7) set to automatically check for updates but not download or install without my approval. I do this so I can review what's being updated, (I'm a little wary of Microsoft putting an anti-piracy app in as a "critical" update in the last year or two). Anyways, when I boot up the computer, it checks for updates and alerts me of them.

However, Microsoft Security Essentials also auto-checks for updates upon boot, and if it has an update it will automatically being downloading and installing it in the background. Which is all well and good, except whenever that's happening it causes MU to "fail" updates until it's done updating. Thus, I have to remember to wait until the MSE update is done, then run the MU update.

Question: MSE definition updates are included under "Optional" updates in MU, is there a way to make MSE stop updating independent of MU so I can queue all the updates together? I feel like this would be the easiest way to prevent this annoyance. I don't see an option, and I'd rather put up with this annoyance if the only solution is to put all updates back into Microsoft's hands completely.
 

A:Microsoft Security Essentials updates blocking other windows updates

My understanding of MSE is it will check several times during the to make it has the latest updates. Most GOOD VA programs will do this as there are several releases daily for AV definitions. This is the only way you and your machine will be aware of these releases.

When some of these attacks happen, a definition is released, but as the infection is refined, the the definition must also be refined and/or improved. I use F-Prot on my machines, but I install MSE on the kids and grand kids machines. I have seen as many as 12 releases in one day from F-Prot, this is what is call" being on top of things".

So I would not want to rely on ME being the one to check several times daily on all of my machines to see if a new release has been made.

Hello,
I spoke with the VLSC and they told me that to be able to install ESUs onto windows 7 installations that we would need to do the following:

Purchase a single licenses of Windows 10 with software assurance to get imaging rights and downgrade supportReimage each windows 7 system in the curstomer environment with the volume license service center windows 7 image iso

I would expect the updates since they are basically downloaded from a portal to install on pretty much any current install of Windows 7.  Am I correct that we would be able to have the MSP (assuming they have software that can deploy the ESUs) push
out the updates downloaded from the ESU portal to our clients current Windows 7 OEM installs or is VLSC correct in that every system would have to be reinstalled with a new volume license image before the ESUs could be installed on the system?
Thanks!

I tried to update both Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware and both were blocked from doing so. My default browser is Firefox and it worked just fine, including Add On updates.

One of the two programs indicated my firewall might be blocking access, so I turned off the firewall with no joy. Began just looking at other stuff and stumbled across the fact IE7 was in "Working Off Line" mode. Refreshed it and got online, then closed IE. Tried updates again and both progs updated normally.

So, although I do not presently have a problem, I'm at a loss to understand why IE7 being in Off Line mode would prevent Malwarebytes and SAS from updating. Can anyone shed some light on this? Maybe even a guess?

A:IE7 Blocking other program Updates

I could be wrong about this - and probably am? But even if IE7 is not your default browser - it still controls your internet cache? It is part of a windows system file that is needed when downloading an update to any app. This would be my guess?

I ran a check disk yesterday and it came up without any issues. Is there somewhere that has a log file that I can see the results of this more in depth. The results seem to come up quickly and I don't know where to go to find them.
My problem: Win10 update has parked itself in the windows update section and will not allow me to update my security files unless I start its download. I did a system restore back to Jul 22 thinking that would get rid of it but to no avail. It is still in my update section. I do not want to put this on my system yet as everyone says might be better to wait for bugs to work out. I cannot get online without all of these security updates so must do something to recover the pc.
My question: Should I do a system recovery or a factory reset or are they the same? I can boot into windows 7 without a problem. I am a middle pc user - not newbie but not advanced either so this all kind of make me nervous....Thanks in advance for any thoughts or help.

Hello,

My colleague at work had malwares infections on her computers at the begining of this week. MSE and Malwarebyte could remove "a lot" of them, and in fact both of them now see the PC as clean. In deed there were some typical malware's action in browsers that seem to be now gone (google links redirectionc, auto opening of IE while FF is the defaul browser and running, etc.)

But then there is this really strange "Windows Security" window that keeps appearing and blocking (without any choice) all updates for Adobe programs, and also AVIRA (preventing installation), and some more, and i find it really suspicious.

So my question is the following : is it a remaining malware that cannot be detected or just a problem with windows security parameters ? Because it sure does looks like a Windows window, but that doesn't mean it is one, and i find this behaviour really weird (ok with Windows that doesn't mean anything either ). It is also not connected to MSE, since disabeling it doesn't keep this window from appearing (same with windows firewall).

So i come here to ask for help from the pros to sort it out.

Here is a picture of this window (in Spanish, since the infected system is in spanish), when it blocked the update for PDF :

Dear all, I recently installed a brand new Windows 7 Ultimate and a couple of days after that strange things began to happen. Almost each time I try to install some program (for example Photoshop CS5, Guitar Pro 6 and some others), a window pops up and says "Windows Security. Some files have been deleted." At this point the installation stops. The same happens to some downloads.

Besides, I've downloaded the Spybot. It tells me Windows Security Center is off. When I try to turn it on, it says WSC can't be started. The same happens to my administrator security settings. They are off and I can't turn them on.
The computer's behavior looks like there's some virus in it. Please help.

Hi!

My dad owns an internet cafe, and i maintain it for him as regards to OS, and basic networking stuff. I do have a little background with tech support work.

I've received no special training (apart from the usual training with OS, and basic stuff when i used to work for dell tec support), most of the things i do to fix computers have come from years of experience doing self help, and self research.

Recently I've had problems with the usual malware effects on our cafe server (other computers arent affected so i'm pretty sure it's local to the server), Task manager disabled, regedit disallowed, but i was able to figure that out and it was caused by a startup entry wscript.exe, auto.vbs, which i promptly disabled, and deleted in the registry.

I would venture to say that in about 50% of the times the update is no longer offered a second time after I reboot(whether or not instructed to by Vista). However, that still leaves me with plenty of occassions where I have to install the same update 2 or 3 times to be sure "it took" and the fact that this happens at all lol

Thanks in advance for your help!

Shortly after 3 am today, I noticed my Win 7 SP1 computer was about to automatically restart in order to complete installing updates. Before I could abort this, the computer restarted. And I immediately noticed that wretched Icon to "Get Windows 10" in my notification tray, with no way to remove or disable it.
When I checked my view updates history in Control Panel>Windows update, I saw that no less than 39 "Recommended" updates had been installed on May 31 - some issued as far back as 2012. Not one of them applied to issues on my system (the ones fixing problems with Lithuanian and Russian currency spring to mind as examples). In short, they all looked like updates I had hidden.
I checked my Windows Update settings, and Automatic Updates was still disabled. I went to Windows Update, and my "Hidden Updates" folder was empty. Well, at least I knew the what and where, if not the how and why, of what had happened.
Well, it was easy enough to uninstall the update that put the "Get Windows 10" icon in my tray - I just uninstalled the KB3035583 update from Control Panel in the usual way. Only took 3-4 minutes, including a system restart. Great - one uninstalled useless update down, only 36 to go. That should only take 2-3 hours.

Shortly before christmas I dropped my laptop and damaged the HDD. I had to get it replaced and have windows reinstalled etc.

Now there are a lot of little things acting up, and I'm thinking it could be because supposedly important updates aren't installing.

I still get the sign next to shut down on the start menu, which suggests updates will be installed, but they're constantly coming up as failed.

This is my update history, and the highlights ones are commonly failing.

Any ideas?

EDIT: Oh, and the error codes are all 8E5E03FB if that helps.

Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.


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 started noticing this recently and I don't know whether it has to do with an Update that was pushed through which changed the way Updates are delivered into new installs, or whether the slipstreaming method used in Update 7 installation media is fouling out Updates actual delivery. Let me describe what happens to see if anyone else recognizes it:

Updates are set to Automatic choosing "Use Recommended Settings" or "Install Important Updates" during the OS install so are presumably downloading in the background as soon as the new install gets online.

Then doing a Check For Updates begins an endless loop that may not resolve at all until one notices that there is a yellow ! on the Shutdown button which begins install of a large group of Updates. Today it was 189. So I shutdown and these tick through the entire 189 but at restart quite a few are logged Failed. So I again Check for Updates and this time it says 72 available, but when I select them and start their download, it again stalls at 0% - the tray icon agrees. Soon the yellow ! appears on Shutdown button again and I shut down to see 72 Updates appear to be installing.

The past few installs where this has happened it was a daylong struggle to get them all in. But they eventually all were installed and I could then choose the Optional - which tells me that Important are self-installing without regard to User input. If I had have waited they may have all installed at once queued by th... Read more

As a lot of people are experiencing a problem with new installs not updating, judging by the number of new threads on this issue, to save a lot of people a lot of hassle, you may simply have to wait a few days for automatic updates because new Win10 installs updates are taking priority.

Here's a tip to the mods/gurus etc. If you see someone start a thread with these problems, just tell them they may have to wait a few days. Even better, create a Sticky about this issue. You'll make life much easier for yourselves and spare others a lot of hassle. Very simple.

I will start by saying I built the machine myself and originally I thought it was a ram stick, found one that I took out and the freezing stopped but it was the coincidence. It will freeze sometimes within 5 minutes or 1 hour. It is seemingly random. It will freeze with the full 16gb of ram and when i take out the stick with 12gb as well, and I figure its not the ram anymore and thats why I turn to you. I think it may be a software bug or something thats not installed. I have tried to install all the drivers that are out and the freezing happens sometimes when i go to install a program, download a driver, download a torrent, it seems during processes it just stops, screen locks up and it needs to be re-booted. Cant alt-tab, cant alt+ctrl+del or anything. Is there a program I can run to check everything? or a log or screenshots of a file or anything that you guys could use to diagnose? I'll get you anything you need, its frustrating that such a beautiful machine is freezing Also another thing that makes me think that its software rather than hardware is the fact that when i try to install windows updates they fail with an error 800B0100 and I have tried resetting the updater and running Microsoft tools and troubleshooters, nothings working.

Installing update 1 out of 4. . .," which takes about 7 minutes or so before it will shut down. It has ben doing this for months. It is clearly installing the same updates over and over again. I can shut it down, let it install the updates, restart and shut down 5 minutes later and it does the same thing. Any suggestions on what I can do to prevent this? Thanks!

Hi,
Two days ago I was surfing the web and my computer decided to close everything and reboot, but not before configuring updates without my permission which I think is what I had it set on. My first thought was that it was some kind of virus so I shut it down before they were installed (held down the power button).

In retrospect, this was probably a stupid thing to do because then when I started it back up I got the blue screen saying windows failed to start or something like that ("this could be a hardware/software issue" etc). Anyway after a few other things, I decided to just completely wipe it and start over as I hadn't backed anything up so I lost all my files and everything else.

Then, about an hour ago it happened again while I was in the middle of a game (just quit the game and started shutting down and installing updates without any warning that I could see). This time I just left it to see what happened and here I am. I looked at what had been installed in update history and there's a huge list including:

Update for windows Vista (25 of these)
Security update for windows Vista (50 of these)
Cumulative security update for IE7 for windows Vista (1)
Cumulative security update for windows mail for windows Vista (1)

I had a problem with Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working. The problem still exists. One of the steps was troubleshooting Windows 7. The troubleshooter showed that Windows Update was not registered. The troubleshooter supposedly fixed the issue. I went to check the settings and Windows Update settings now are to Install updates automatically. It is greyed out and you can't change it. There is a message at the top highlighted in yellow. Some settings are managed by your administrator. The User account is set as administrator and I can't change the setting. It was set to Ceck for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them.

You could try:

I do not use native or 3rd Party software managers, but have been tempted to implement the PowerShell solution. I tried it for a while, but my software collection is not that big.

Pretty much, every time I shut down my computer it "installs updates 1 of 1". I've installed it 3 or 4 times a day for the past few days and it just won't stop now. When I check Windows Update, the last 15 or so items have all been "Security Update For Windows Vista KB981852, Status: Successful, Importance: Important".

So apparently, all the installations have been successful, but it still won't quit. Does anyone have any idea what I should do? Thanks a lot!

Hey:
 
There are 4 options to set MSE updates.
 
I have MSE updates set to: "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them."
 
But MSE with no warning, decides to start downloading and installing updates, and automatically shutdowns which requires a restart.
 
This usually happens when I walk away from the computer for a few minutes. I come back and the update already installed and shutdown, which requires a restart.
 
The problem with this is if I have open programs on the screen or processor work I am working on. The download installs and then shuts down, and I have to restart the computer. This wipes everything off the screen. Sometimes Firefox saves the open programs, sometimes it doesn't.
 
Most importantly to me, is the shutdown/restart doesn't save whatever I was working on the word processor. Which if you worked for 2-3 hours on a project and it disappears because of the shutdown, is not good a good thing.
 
So what's the trick to setting MSE so I can control the download/installation/shutdown/restart thing? So I can save my processor work beforehand?
 
Thanks in advance for any help.

I have downloaded and installed a panorama stitching program - Panorama Factory - as a 64-bit installer. On the PF Factory website it correctly identified my W7 as 64-bit and downloaded that installer version.

However it has actually installed as the 32-bit version that does run as such (confirmed in Task Manager).

I'm awaiting a response from Panorama Factory but, meanwhile, any thoughts here on why it has done this?

Doom 3 suddenly exits most of the way. ATI UCI install goes most of the way, and suddenly exits. Installing the multemedia center warns me that the UCI is not installed and some programs may not work, installs anyway, and at the end gives a few errors about reg files that are in the temp folder.

In December I noticed every time I booted my computer (Toshiba Sat A665) it had Windows updates to install. Eventually this got my attention and I found that windows update was downloading and installing the same 5 updates "successfully" over and over again. It was also downloading and unsuccessfully trying to install internet explorer 11 as well, giving error code 9C57 (I'm pretty sure that the IE 11 error is because some of the required updates needed for IE 11 are not installed, which I believe is due to my first problem, that the same updates are download over and over again). If I hide any of the updates, this causes new updates to appear, which also download and install successfully, over and over again.

I have tried many of the solutions offered by Microsoft and a few that I saw on this forum without success, such as running &quot;Reset_Windows_Update_Full.bat&quot;. Fortunately, while I did not see the "Never, under any circumstances, follow the instructions posted to another user who appears to be having the same problem as you" warning until after I had done exactly that, I had made a full backup of my system. So I am able to revert back to a few days ago where I had only tried Microsoft solutions if necessary. Here are some pics of what Windows update shows me in a typical session, in order.

A:Softpaq - Installs updates [and flashes bios] only to reboot...

Your post is not that clear but in any case we are just forum users (and not HP support) so we don't need constructive criticism ' Frustrating as it is, for some, consumer gear can sometimes provide a better user experiance than much more expensive corporate gear that seems more locked down and less often updated... Consumer motherboards for example see more micorcode and BIOS updates than worksation motherboards (and thus can take the latest CPU's with ease - big OEM's just expect corporates to replace their stuff often)... Anyway, as to what BIOS version you actually have installed on your workstation, look when booting as it should display it during POST (or go into BIOS and look). This should clarify the actual BIOS version you have. Then, if a later BIOS version exists, fetch the appropriate softpack from HP and run it. HP downloads for your system can be found here. Latest version in your case is sp76244.exe (BIOS 1.54 Rev A) and updates some UEFI vulnerabilities that as i understand are not being currently exploited (and can only be exploited with physical access to the system). It's critical according to HP but hardly a case of the sky falling. In any case, double clicking the HP softpack within windows will create a c:\swsetup\sp76244 directory containing the contents of the softpack and also autorun the update executable. The update executable will then check the BIOS version and indicate if it is the same as the softpack version or later than th... Read more

So, I acquired this great gaming PC a few weeks ago, and everything was going great - then I decided to install a fresh version of Windows 7 x64, and when it came time to install the video card drivers, I've faced a series of crashes, and it has only gotten progressively worse. Since then, I've encountered BSOD during new installs of windows 7, almost during every windows update, and during most driver installs. I was tinkering around with the HDDs (unplugging, replugging), because I read that I needed to disconnect one to be able to install properly on the SSD.

Anyways, some of the errors I've been receiving are:

Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area,

and 0x0000007f

I pray It's nothing that I have to go back in and physically tinker with, because I'm so afraid of just making things worse.

I don't know how to post those long logs of errors, so if someone can try to help out a TOTAL newb, I would be very greatful. I really didn't want to come here to ask for a handout, but I'm running out of hope.

I recently tried using Microsoft Update and received the message that I needed to install KB892130 WGA before I can install the updates. I am unable to install KB892130 WGA using Microsoft Update.

I downloaded a copy of the WGA from MS tech net and can manually install it. I receive the "installation was sucessful" screen.

If I reboot and check again with MS update it still tells me I need to install KB892130 WGA?

Getting tired of manually installing updates every month.

Any ideas how to solve this?
