Preferred Solution: failed microsoft update kb3172729 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.)

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.

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?

Microsoft page says to remove update via "Add/Remove Programs" but it doesn't show up there (suspect that's because it failed to inistall.)

Microsoft page implies I should at .NET 2.0 so I tried updating my .NET 1.0.... Update failed.

Seems I can't update .NET nor install the automatic security update nor eliminate the update icon.

What started as a crippling annoyance has escalated out of control. Windows auto updater, the bane of my existence, downloaded a patch and forced my computer to restart. Somewhere during that process, my laptop ran out of power and died, and upon rebooting, would load to configuring update, only to proceed to configuring failed, revoking changes or something to that effect. It would hang there for as long as I was patient to wait for it, which was a good half an hour. I proceeded to do shut it down and attempt a system repair, which apparently was successful, but I still had the same problem. I then went to system backup, only to find to my immense concern that there wasn't a restore point at all (which is unusual because the last time I did a system restore, I had several) I then proceeded to attempt multiple means to fix things, with only running in safe mode with networking to allow me to log in. Eventually it offered to run a CHKDSK scan, which apparently found and cleaned a metric ton of files in a variety of manners, but now it won't load at all. Trying to boot it in any mode causes the laptop to hang indefinitely on the windows logo, attempting to repair the operating system with the installation disk merely causes it to search endlessly for an operating system to repair, despite having found one flawlessly before the CHKDSK scan - I'm now attempting to run a startup repair with the F8 menu, but it is currently searching endlessly for problems.

Here's another tricky one.
This important security update will not update. It is only 606Kb.
Microsoft says it is caused by a virus problem. I have Norton 360 installed. Norton say it is not a virus.
Microsoft say pay us $120 to fix it. I say I can't afford to pay that for something when I have no way of knowing exactly what the problem really is.

be truthful to the public. I have been reading a lot about people ditching windows and going to Linux. I wonder why. wow I used to love and trust windows. now I don't know anymore. you all have become something other than wonderful like I used to think.
too bad. maybe I should learn Linux too. windows is probably a habit lots of people will learn to break. scary. Be honest about your updates. ty.

I never noticed that "Microsoft Feeds Synchronization" until a few days ago, after I upgraded to IE8 (RC1). I went to internet options, clicked on contents...then found it in settings, but is it important? How come I never needed or it never came up before now?

A:What Is...microsoft Feeds Synchronization? And How Important Is It?

Here you go:

It's not a question of importance, it's more about usefulness. I use them in my sidebar and Outlook to check on articles and forum posts from various sites, including Tech Support Forum and various News agency websites. I find them handy but they're not suited for everyone.

Our domain laptops are Windows 8.1 x64 and all have Bitlocker enabled with the recovery keys stored in active directory.
Overnight we have had a series of updates and we are now finding some machines are asking for the bitlocker recovery key on boot.
Eventlog shows the following message:
"Bootmgr failed to obtain the BitLocker volume master key from the TPM because Secure Boot configuration changed unexpectedly."
Followed by:
"Bootmgr failed to obtain the BitLocker volume master key from the TPM."
So a change to our secure boot environment has happened it apears. The only update I have found that may be associated with this is KB3172729, this update changed the dpupdate.bin, dbxupdate.bin and tpmtasks.dll files.
Anyone else experiencing problems?
Thanks

You may want to check, but on my Vista I don't see any new add-on and I don't even have C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Search Enhancement Pack folder. http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2010...lbar-update.ars As part of its regular Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released an update for its various toolbars, and this update came with more than just documented fixes. The update also installs an add-on for Internet Explorer and an extension for Mozilla Firefox, both without the user's permission. As you can see in the Windows Update screenshot above, Microsoft does not indicate that the update will install anything for either browser. It's also not really clear what the installed extension actually does.

A:Microsoft hides mystery Firefox extension in toolbar update As part of its regular Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released an update...

Thanks Broni for the information. As for Firefox can't I just delete the extension. Let us all see which company gits back to B/C with some sort of answer.

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.

At the first time I bought my P52. It comes with no problem.But after I update it, it has many problem such as 3 times boot, IM software can't found and etc.Then I found the solution from this community (thank you so much) and my loved P52 come back again.Now everything has no problem. so when lenovo or Microsoft releases any update. I am very hesitant to update my P52 and also not sure I'll miss any important update or not. >< How about you guys? 

A:I am very hesitant to update my P52 and also not sure I'll miss any important update or not. ><

I'm still a subscriber to the theory "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Whether it's OS updates for my iPhone or software updates for my computers, I tend to wait. Been burned too many times. In fact, I'm a bit annoyed with Windows 10 in that you can't stop the updates. I rarely update my Windows 7 machines in that everything works just fine. 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.
