Failed Install KB2965788 - Important Update

Q: Failed Install KB2965788 - Important Update

I was doing a clean install and during the updates, I had one, KB2965788, that failed to install and hasn't reappeared for a second attempt.

I'm running Win 7 Pro x64. The error code is WindowsUpdate_80070308.

I'm not sure if this update is required for my system configuration or if there is some issue that needs to be detected and resolved.

Does anyone have any suggestions?


Preferred Solution: Failed Install KB2965788 - Important Update

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: Failed Install KB2965788 - Important Update

My understanding that some system may require this KB and some don't.
My system do not have KB2965788 installed.

I set up two brand new computers one Dell and one Toshiba laptop and both computers failed kb2984981, kb2965788 and kb2861208. Is it possible that these updates have been replaced with newer ones? I did factory restore the dell and I still generate these 3 failed updates. Hope to hear from someone! cheers!

Hi van2489
May I ask you how the update fail exactly? Does the Windows Update control panel returns an error code? If so, what is it? Or does the updates install, you restart your computer then the installation hangs and it displays "Reverting changes"?

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.

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.

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/

Hey All,

There seems to be an issue with MS latest security update for IE 11 on Windows 7. For MANY, not just me. All the other updates installed fine, last "patch Tuesday" but this one did not go through the automatic update process. Others are having the same issue. If you read here, it seems to be more of an "optional update." but MS did not push it through automatic updates on last Tuesday's patches. See here:


What's going on? Is this patch expected to go through at a later time, moved to optional, or what? I thought that ALL Windows Updates classified as important as long as Automatic Windows Update was turned on, went through?


A:Update for IE 11 KB-2929437 (April 8) Marked as Important- does not auto install?

That's the cumulative update that updates IE from 11.0.4 to 11.0.7.

I've got 4 computers with Windows 7 and IE11, and the update installed fine in all of them.

 Hi @rrj2005, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums!  I see you are having issues with the updates from the HP Support Assistant and your HP ENVY Notebook. For the Wireless adapter, I would go to the Device Manager and right click on the Wireless and select update driver and software.  With the BIOS, if all is working well I would not do it.

I was attempting to recover from several BSOD's by an Update Install. This caused an MRB corruption that I recovered from, but now windows restarts (no BSOD) 2 seconds after displaying the loading screen.

I have tried many things but this is where i'm at now:
sfc /scannow, says it has a pending update, but no CBS.txt log exists and I cannot get out of this loop.
No .dmp file is written. (I have OS set to full memory dump, but likely isn't starting the OS yet.)
Repair terminates with the following error. Unknown Bugcheck: Bugcheck f4. Parameters = 0x3, 0xfffffa800550eb30, 0xfffffa800550ee10, 0xfffff8000317a240.
The last error indicates a CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION of a process. Which likely means a repair system file is corrupted. But this should not happen when I use the repair console from the Windows 7 DVD and yet I get the same error.
Without a dump i'm unable to trace the crash, unless there is an alternate method to capturing a dump?

Here is some information about the computer.
I have a single HDD that multiboots separate partitions of XP (professional) on C: and Win 7 x64 (professional) on D:

I have done a Hard Disk check without errors.

I normally check the status of Windows update every few days. This morning going to Control Panel ..... Windows Update I find everything normal. I check update history and find that a important update failed. So I did a check for pending updates. Still normal, no pending updates found.
That important update that failed really wasn't so IMPORTANT, I guess.
Anyhow, I wish to try to install it. Can't find how.
I didn't put this post in the Windows Update forum because I'm not ready to troubleshoot yet. Just want to find out how to install the failed update.

January-2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup (KB3212646), 1 update failed.
The errormessage only says that: "13 were installed and 1 failed".

But how do i find out which security update failed to install ???

Update History only lists "January-2017 Security Monthly Quality Rollup (KB3212646) update failed"
Installed Updates only lists those that were
succesfully installed, not the failed....

The whole update is 146 MB, so there is a lot of updates, not just from the last month.
So comparing the list of succesfully installed updates against the list of avilable updates from the last month is impossible....
The genius who came up the bright idea of putting all updates into one BIG cummulative update obviously did not think about what would happen if something goes wrong...

Hi all,

Running Win 7 Home Premium (SP1) 64 bit.
I always downloaded and installed the Windows updates for my computer without problems. However, a few days ago, after I downloaded and installed 14 updates, my Windows Explorer started to act very odd: for example, I was not able to copy / paste the files using right click. Immediately, I used the restore point created before the updates => the Windows Explorer issue was solved and the computer seemed to return to normal.
But now, although the Windows Update screen shows the 14 updates as downloaded, when I click on "Install", the green indicator goes left and right for hours, but the installation doesn't happen.
I looked for solution online and I tried the following resources without success:

- FixIt tool: it gets stuck in the "Checking for Updates" screen.

- Run Malwarebytes, Lavasoft, Spybot: all clear.

- http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/window... => I tried to apply the "Most Helpful Reply" (by miluethi) =>

When I use the Windows Update or Microsift Update sites, I can get onto the page fine, and scan my computer to find needed updates.
When I select the updates I would like to download, and press the Install Updates button, it downloads all the updates fine.
The problem is the instalation. All updates, no matter what ones, even the latest Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130) wont install.
I keep getting a messege telling me the instalation has failed, and it doesnt say anywhere why it could be doing this.

Any ideas?

Hello, I've been have several issues with my laptop ever since I swapped over my faulty C drive by Ghosting it onto another HDD. My troubleshooters all fail to run when I try to start them and Windows Update will not work despite the fact that I've checked and re-checked that the service is running. I've run sfc twice now with reboots in between and I've tried to repair install windows 7 using the tutorial provided by this forum, but I keep running into errors while trying to fix the problem.

I do not want to run a clean install unless I absolutely have to, but repairing it doesn't seem to work. I have the CBS log and the error codes from the troubleshooters if you need them.

A:Windows 7 repair install failed; error when trying to run Update

Start by running a couple of Startup Repairs to make sure the boot files are in order.

Post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Help Forums.

Did the clone hold activation after cloning? Check at Computer>Properties activation link.

If these are okay, then let's move to addressing the UPdates. Try each of these tutorials:
reset Windows Update components
System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008
Windows Update - Reset - Windows 7 Forums

Report back the results of each of these steps.

Is this the original Asus factory preinstall with the bloatware and duplicate utilities that have better versions built into Win7? If so this is a corrupt install to begin with that smothers Win7 native performance. So I'd stronglly consider doing the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 as you'd go from one of the worst possible installs to one of the best. Once you've done it you can preserve a backup image so you never have to do it again.

Yesterday my wife's Dell computer running Vista Home Premium installed 16 of the 17 automatic updates. After numerous attempts I could still not get update KB 970892 SQL service pack 3 to install. It shows an unknown error code 737D.

Strange, on my Dell notebook also running Vista Home Premium all 17 installed right away. Both computers are 2 years old with lots of hard drive space and until this event all updates have worked without a hitch on both. How can I get this to install as Microsoft shows it as important?
Thank you.

Ater upgrade to Threshold 2 I fixed all what was possible.
First, later again and again, reboot indicates problems:
Apps: Mail, Calendar, Store and Settings not working.
In case of Settings app starts, but windows disappears and is away - Taskman indicates no running.
Mail, Calendar and Store are in start menu highlighted by dark color and when I try to start them, they report that app can't run and that have contact admin to fix. I'm only one user - admin on my computer and cannot fix them.
Can anybody help me?
Also still not found possibility to set new place of Docs, Pictures and similar folders on HDD - default path is not possible to change, in 10240 it was like in Win7/8/8.1 - so possible.

Thank you for everything!

Please help.
Any adivice would really be apreciated!
Many thanks

Hi folks,

I have a HP Elitebook Folio 9470p.  It came with Windows 8, and I installed it on my corporate domain.  I was trying to do some Windows updates so  I could upgrade it to Windows 8.1, but it fails installing the updates, whether or not I try
to install them one at a time or all of them.  It has about 18 updates it needs from security updates to a .net framework update.  I run Symantec EP, and disabled it, checked for driver updates for things like display and networking and they are
all up to date.
I'm at a loss as to what to do.  It gives this error in the event log for each file, Event ID 20.

Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x800F0922: Security Update for Windows 8 for x64-based Systems (KB2862152).

This is the example for KB2862152, but it gives the same error for every one.  I've tried to auto fix for Windows update issues and it fixed a couple of the issues, but not all of them, and provides no other help.
I also deleted folders and files from the SoftwareDistribution folder as well, to no avail.  Any ideas what I can do to get whatever updates it needs, so I can fully patch it, and upgrade it to Win 8.1?

Thanks for any help!

but AVG will install, what's up with that? ive scanned my computer for viruses with AVG and SUPERantispyware, they only find tracking cookies?

If you need to know, I'm running comodo firewall (but wasn't was running windows when trying to install the things I listed) and I'm currently running AVG

A:Avira refused to update, so I uninstalled and attempted to install Avast! but it failed...

If you uninstalled Avira via Add/Remove Programs only, you might still want to run Avira's uninstall tool to be sure it has 100% uninstalled all tidbits scattered on your drive and in the registry to avoid possible future issues. Here's a link to the uninstall tool download site:http://www.avira.com/en/support/av7_upgrade_tools.htmlAfter running the uninstall tool, Avast probably would have installed OK for you. I run Avast and it sure is quick to notice those remnants of previous antivirus programs during installation. It just thought you might have two AV's on your system------a definite no-no. The AVG, if you're happy with it, could yet encounter problems if there are bits of Avira still in your registry or lurking elsewhere on your pc. I'd definitely run that Avira uninstall tool just to be sure. You might even want to do a search on keyword AVIRA and see if you have any files/folders Avira left, too, and delete them.
