Fresh Install Windows update issue

Q: Fresh Install Windows update issue

Hey people,
So recently I've had a lot of trouble, had a bad hard drive, now it's been replaced and I have reinstalled Vista Home Premium x64. On first start up it says there are 72 updates for my computer. When I okay installation it installs them all except about 5, then it restarts and shows a screen saying that it's installing the updates. Then the wait begins, I fell asleep waiting for it last night, 2 hours down and still no movement.
Is there a way I can just install them a few at a time?
I think it's hanging out cos it can't take that long to apply the changes, can it?

Preferred Solution: Fresh Install Windows update issue

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: Fresh Install Windows update issue

Edhorny,

I recently had similar troubles with updates. Your computer is set to update automatically. If you change this setting to just inform you that there are available updates, then when you view those available you can uncheck and/or check the updates you want to install at any one time.

Once I did that and now only update a handful at a time, I have not had any problems since. Also, I have found out quickly on this forum that other people periodically have problems with a patricular update so it is usually worth your while to investigate the individual updates before you install them. It could save you some headaches.

Hope this helps a bit.

I'm currently running the initial version of Windows 10 and i'm planning to do the november upgrade release soon. However, anybody has an idea if your system will be faster when you do a clean install with the november update instead of an upgrade? (similar to the speed difference when installing the clean initial version instead of upgrading from W7)?

Hi.
The difference of W7 > W10 upgrade vs. W10 clean install is substantial.
The difference of W10 10240 > W10 1511 upgrade vs. clean install is pretty negligible, IMO.

I installed a fresh Windows 7 SP1 64-bit on my Dell Precision M6400 yesterday from a Dell OEM disk I've used before without any problems. At 2PM the disk was installed and I went to Update knowing there will be hundreds of Updates. All afternoon and evening it was "Checking for Updates. I left it on and went to sleep at 10PM, which is 8 hours of checking. I figured overnight it would finish.
 
I was wrong. Checked it at 7AM and it had turned off. Don't know why? So I put it back in the Update mode and hope it will finish today...this morning. The only change I can see after all those hours is Windows does say Activated.
 
This seems like a very long time. Should I reinstall Windows 7 if it doesn't update today? 
 
Lately on other laptops with Windows 7 the Updates have been slow, very slow. 

A:Windows 7 Fresh Install Won't Update? Help

Download the April 2016 rollup package as shown on this page. You need IE to download from the catalog. This will get you all updates and improvements since SP1. After the install make sure you have IE11 and .NET 4.61. If not you can get IE11 here and .NET 4.61 here. 
 
Download and install the June 2016 rollup. Make sure you have the prerequisite KB3020369 as shown on the page. 
 
Reboot after each and install. Then check again for any upadates.

Hi - this is my first post and I've left this as long as I could stand before needing to turn to someone (anyone!) for help.

I don't know very much about the technical side of computers so please bear with me if I have to question any instructions I don't understand!


My laptop is 3 years old (Toshiba Satellite P200-1FC) and has been having a problem with system freezes and BSOD's. It started about 2 months ago when I was uploading photos from my camera's SD card onto my laptop. I had a lot of photos from my wedding from different family members so was using all different memory cards to get all photos on my laptop. Suddenly the folder I was viewing photos in froze - BSOD then came along swiftly.
Didn't think too much of it the first time so tried again and it happened everytime I reached a particular section of photos in a folder.

Around this same time I had thought that the Norton 360 I was running had picked up some viruses as it was behaving a little strangely (turning itself off and telling me a full scan had completed in seconds!)
After trying a few things I decided to wipe the hard drive using DBAN and start over with Windows 7.
My laptop had originally been installed with Vista - which I wasn't so fond of so Windows 7 seemed a good idea.


So I started right from scratch about a month ago and installed Windows 7 Enterprise (32bit)and got my Norton 360 back on the system but removed MBAM at the request of Norton as they said it could interfere with Norton produ... Read more

MBAM has no conflicts with Norton at all.
Download Malwarebytes and run a full scan, your system seems to be infected
The symantec engine used by N360 caused your BSODs, I'd recommend completely removing Norton and reinstalling from scratch, your N360 has corrupt install

Hi all, I freshly installed Windows 8.1 Pro x64 in an SSD. I'm still using Windows 7 x64 until I can sort out some issues. In Windows 7 Device Manager under "Bluetooth Radios" I see a single line labeled "Bluetooth module" (Broadcom driver version 6.5.1.1061). In Windows 8.1 under "Bluetooth Radios" I see 3 lines listed, "Bluetooth module" as with Win7 (Broadcom) plus two Microsoft items (Bluetooth Enumerator and I forgot the other one). Is it fine for the Microsoft and Broadcom driver to coexist or should I keep only one? If so which one? I tried disabling/uninstalling the Microsoft one but it keeps coming back. Thanks

P.D.: In Windows 7 if I want to turn On/Off the Bluetooth Adapter, there's a bluetooth icon in system tray that I can right click to do this. In Windows 8.1 that same icon also shows in system tray but when I right click on it the option to turn it on/off does not show up. I guess the only way to do so is to go to NEtowrking/Change Adapter Settings and disable it from there. Weird.

No there is no problem - just leave them like that. If you have a special key combination (e.g. FN+F2) you can enable/disable like this.

Ok recently I've encountered an issue from upgrading from Win XP to Win 7 about

4 days ago. Prior to that i haven't had this issue i'm about to explain for about 3 weeks

after upgrading.. So this issue is fairly new and unresolved with my knowledge. Ok so the

issue at hand here is that about 4 days ago when playing my online game DCUO i

encountered skipping and crashing which at first i thought was just an over exertion of

computer use.
So I'm going to just sorta cut to the chase and run down the list of things I

tried, after realizing it was a system issue. So I've tried Re installing windows 7 or

repairing it. which always did nothing I've gone through turning off unnecessary

services I've tried using Xperf and finding the stack traces of the system which

brought up a **** load of functions or threads or what ever there called which had

massive weight (Process) being used up and one of them would be like usbport.sys or

just a bunch of DLL's, so i'm left with a big question mark, and i would like this fixed so

i'm asking the experts to please help me because i can not find anything on this matter

Hi

Anybody doing fresh install of Windows 7 these days, its a pain to install windows 7 updates. My Windows update uses close to 5 GB of RAM in my 6GB system. Granted, I was able to fix it with the Memory Leak Fix update available online. It just get old if you are trying to install windows 7 in a few systems.

Also, you can never know what happens with the Windows 7 Updates, it ends up sometimes checking for updates or installing takes forever and i have to resort to multiple manual fixes posted online to correct this.

I thought i would just write here lol, its frusturating.

So I installed Windows 7 yesterday. Now when I turn the system off, it downloads something like 70+ updates. When I switch my system back on, I think it tries to install them, but it stays at 0% for 3/4 minutes, then says something about 'reverting' and then goes to the log in screen. The same thing happens everytime I turn it off and back on, it can't seem to install the updates, or whatever it's trying to do when I turn the system on.

Any ideas?

Thanks for any replies.

A:Fresh Windows 7 install, having update problem.

Don't attempt to install such a large batch of updates.

It's more time consuming I know, but try installing them in batches of half-a-dozen or so at a time.

You might also want to change your update settings vis: Start>All Programs>Windows Update>Change Settings>Check for Updates but let me choose whether to download and install them.

By trying to install such a large batch you risk having a load of them fail.

Also, try and install SP1 as soon as you can as a lot of the updates you mention will be included in it.

[SP1] Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Download Available

The reverting message can occur when you try and install an update before one in being hasn't finished, but if updates are being installed Windows can and does appear inactive for some time, so give the system time to finish its task.

I've built a new system and after about a week of it operating it has decided to be a complete douche to me for some unknown reason. Everything was okay until I installed the SSD (so I was aware of anyway, the computer belongs to my sister and she never told me when the system used to crash, so it could have crashed before the SSD). Anyways, when I was made aware of the computer issue I checked the Event Viewer logs to see what was wrong and tehre was loads of Kernal Power issues. So I could only assume that maybe the old PSU was not good enough for all the cool new hardware, so I bought a new PSU; although the problem still persisted.

I've had more chance to observe the system today and determine what is going on. I've removed 2 HDDs from the system and kept the SSD in (I ran a health check of the SSD on my own system, and it reported it to be perfectly fine). Anyways, reformatted the SSD and everything was going well after installation. After give the OS a lovely 150 updates it BSOD on me. I read a log which suggested there was bad drivers, so I just assumed the ethernet drivers I had to manually install were incorrect (even though they worked fine before SSD upgrade). So I went to a wireless connection for the time being, did everything all over again and got the same result. At this point I determine Windows Update must be giving me grief. I installed security updates only at first, and everything was going fine. Then installed SP1, and after maybe the odd 3 more updates... Read more

Morning,

I am rebuilding a workstation here and I am wonder "when" (In terms of order) do you guy run Windows Update during a bare metal reinstall of Windows 7?

I currently do ALL my drivers first (and confirm all devices are working) and then move over to Windows Update. But I see some folks go to WU right after the Windows 7 installer is done and you are placed on the desktop for the first time?

Thoughts?

Cheers,

VP

A:When is the best time to do Windows Update in a fresh install?

Personally I would do as you said and install the up to date drivers first then apply the updates. That way you wouldn't install any outdated drivers windows update may throw up. After all updates create a system image and store it somewhere safe, that way you never have to go through the process again, you can just recover from your image and save yourself hours of time.

Hello everyone. Some background: I wanted to redo a fresh install of Windows 7 onto a Samsung 850 EVO SSD. After using DISKPART to set up the SSD the installation went flawlessly. Of note, I have the Users folder on a separate Toshiba 1TB HDD using Audit Mode instructions I found here. I installed my monitor drivers, mobo drivers, wifi adapter, webcam, HP printer drivers and Google Chrome.

I then proceeded to do the Windows Update. It updated to SP1 fine. I continued Windows Update and it was in the process of installing more critical updates when my BSOD occurred. The necessary files are attached. Thanks for taking time to review my case.

OS: W7 SP1 Home Premium X64 OEM
HDD: 1 TB spinning rust
 
Computer is self built, i.e., I put it together from parts several years ago, (shortly after the APU came out)
 
I recently put together a new PC for myself, and my wife wants the PC described above. I reinstalled W7, from the OEM disk, used the mobo driver CD to get the drivers. Works fine; Graphics, NIC, etc.I'm using it now. Downloaded Avira Free AV, installed the Palemoon web browser.
 
Went the Windows updates in the control panel, said I needed to update the updater, so I did. rebooted the computer, and went back to WU it showed checked for updates: Never, last updated Never.  Looking at installed updates shows that the updater was indeed updated.  Seemed odd, but I click check for updates, and it was still checking after 2 hours.  This isn't normal W7 behaviour. I closed the update window and rebooted.
 
Tried a MS W7 fix for Windows update. Said it fixed a problem. Tried to update the OS again, but again it never finishes checking for available updates.
 
Any help to get this fixed would be much appreciated, as I don't want to run an unpatched, internet connected PC.

Hey guys, I've had my computer running flawlessly for a year now. Recently I bought a external hard drive for school (computer repair class). In class, we installed windows 7 and ubuntu as partitons on the external hard drive. I brought it home yesterday and unplugged the esata cord from my Primary SSD into my external hard drive with ubuntu on it, and tried to boot from the external instead of my primary SSD. I went into the bios also to make sure the computer was reading the new hard drive as the primary, and was #1 in priority.

The boot manager came up asking which version of Ubunto i would like to load, this is all normal. It started doing the postcheck (I think this is what its called). Its where the list of drivers are being collected before ubunto loads, kind of like running windows 7 in safemode and watching the devices load before windows boots up.

After the list of drivers were loaded, my screen goes completly black, and my monitor comes up saying no input signal. I figured this was a driver problem as ubuntu was installed on my external hard drive using my school computer. So I tried to restart the computer in windows again, to get on the internet to troubleshoot.

I turned the computer off and plugged the esata cord into my SSD, changed the bios settings back so that the SSD was primary and in priority, then sure enough i get the error "Please insert a boot device blah blah blah".

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Run an sfc/scannow command in an elevated command prompt at boot. If errors are found, run it twice more with each scan followed by a reboot.
SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

Run a chkdsk on the system partition to check for bad sectors or system errors.
Disk Check

Hi guys,

Slight problem I'm having with Vista Ultimate x64. After a fresh install (including format), Windows Update refuses to cooperate. Specifically, it either hangs (downloading of updates either stops at 0% indefinitely, or progresses a bit, then hangs) or crashes (trustedinstaller.exe experiences a crash). I've tried deselecting every update except one to see if it's a certain one that's causing the problem (and further to this, tried this method with different updates), with no joy.

After a format or two, the problem's still around.

System specs:

Core 2 Duo E6850 (3GHz)
4GB DDR2
EVGA e-GeForce 8800GTX video card
Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer sound card
Vista Ultimate x64, SP1


Really irritating problem - - any and all help is certainly appreciated

Hi,

This is my 1st BSOD after I did a Bios update on my laptop, followed by a fresh install of Windows 8 Pro. It occurred during my installation of drivers. The BSOD Error message was: Driver Power State Failure. The dump file is attached if anyone can help take a look at it, as its got me worried. The main reason I did a bios update was due to the multiple BSOD I had on my previous Bios.

I did try to open up the Dump file, but have no idea on how to read it. However it did mention the file name ntoskrnl.exe. From online searches, the file is related to my kernel? Does this means I installed the Bios wrongly?

If it matters, during Bios installation, I had to update the EC 1st followed by Bios update which had 2 executable files to run.

Note:
-Bios updated myself, obtained form laptop manufacturer

Edit: Uploaded Files as according to posting instructions. (Running the SF Debug Tool)

If it's I would like to learn how to read these files to solve problems myself if possible. I used WinDbg to open the dumb file, but got lost after that. Possibly tell my how you found the cause of the problem?

So, I have installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 on my Click 10, which I have come to regret.

I have been unable to install sound and wireless drivers

I'm downloading drivers from the Toshiba driver website, putting it on the laptop and running the install. First the driver extracts, then a windows message appears asking if I want to run program, I click yes, then nothing happens.

CAN ANYONE HELP???

Even if someone could use Double Driver (a program that allows the backup of drivers) to backup the drivers and email them to me, I would owe you a massive favour.

I've also tried install Windows 8.1, but the exact same thing happens

Hi,
Just installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 64-bit SP1 on my Acer Aspire 6920 laptop by removing all partitions on the hard drive via the windows install disc and hitting next and letting it go from there. Once completed I logged in and both the WiFi and the 10/100 ethernet LAN works fine for internet...hence I'm posting here. I can also access everything else on my home network like TVs, other computers, etc. So I then activated Windows. Then I went to windows update and went to bed. Woke up the next morning and it was still just sitting there...the green bar just scrolling left to right without doing anything.

I've run the SURT tool and it's been going for 3 hours doing the same thing. Just scrolling.

10 minutes ago I ran sfc /scannow and it came back 100% complete with no errors.

I don't have any windows update errors as nothing has ever happened.

I've attached the CBS zip file.

Please help...and thanks.

Fast Windows update method after Fresh Install or Repair

Especially usefull for Engineers.

Try Using AutoPatcher. (download from this site www.9down.com)
and the latest is also available on Techspot

Autopatcher has monthly updates for XP, 2000, 2003 and x64.

download the updates starting with the full December 2005 through to Latest (usually last month). install each package starting with the full release but do not run autopatcher till you have installed all the downloads (autopatcher will append all the monthly updates and will install them all in one go).

Autopatcher allows you to select or deselect any update and will detect any updates you already have, it also installs updates like Java, msn messenger, macromedia flash player, aspi drivers, Latest windows media player, dotnet framework 1.1 and 2, and more.

Autopatcher also has useful tweaks and security settings, eg.. tweakui, show open with notepad on right click menu, put my computer,internet explorer,my documents, on desktop and more.

You simply select all the options you require then run autopatcher and it will do all the above and only restart one time when all operations are done.

As it is a stand alone program, you can copy the folder from program files directory and save to your USB flash drive, portable storage device, CD or DVD disk then execute the autopatcher.exe file to update any system you're working on.

Have Fun

I have been able to download the updates with WSUS, however, I am stuck on 'Listing IDs of missing updates'.
Malwarebytes and Spybot are the only programs on here at this time that are even close to seeing something viral. Cryptoprevent was not causing a problem to my knowledge.

I stopped giving windows and WSUS time after 14 hours of no discernible improvement. I even made the automated ISO and tried installing from there.
The Internet works with everything else that's stock in Windows. I updated to IE 11. Lenovo needed .NET framework 4.0 and their driver updater worked great.

I don't have the original Lenovo Discs. They think I am going to buy them again. M$, of course, won't give me a clean ISO due to OEM status. I found the ISO another way.

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/...ows-7-and-8-1/
When manually installing updates you need to switch your update settings to Never check for updates and restart the machine first.

After restart you will need to ensure the built in windows update service is stopped and set to manual first too or it will conflict with the stand alone installer.

Afterwards reset the windows updates service to what it was before and update settings to your preference and check for updates
Should be only 50 or so updates left to install.

Or you can get all three updates off my OneDrive

Hi, I'm completely stumped. I have an HP tm2t-1000 tablet pc running Windows 7 professional x64. A couple of weeks ago, the hard drive died on me. It was a 500GB 7200rpm SATA drive, but I thought I'd splurge and order a 750GB to replace it. I received the drive, dropped it in and reinstalled Windows from the HP supplied recovery CD. Everything seemed fine until I had some problems installing a piece of software, then I had problems installing another piece of software, then another. I figured it was just a bad install so I wiped the drive and installed windows again. unfortunately, this had no effect, and the same problems persisted.

Seems like the deeper I dig, the more problems I find. The main installer I've been having a problem with is mixed in key 5. the installer quits halfway through every time, no error or anything, just disappears. through the support forums, I determined that this is an issue with Microsoft dot net framework, and it was recommended that I install it through Microsoft's standalone installer. However, when I try to do this, the installer gets to the point where it finishes verifying the installer package and then just sits there and doesn't install. I figured maybe it would work better if I updated windows, so I went to the windows update section of the control panels, and the window hangs whenever I open it. Eventually I am able to get it to load the window (I still don't know how), but when I click "Check for upd... Read more

Any help would be greatly appreciated..Also, please keep in mind that my computer skills are average at best..Thanking everyone in advance for their time and patience.

My system setup is pretty simple anyways - just Windows, Steam, Origin, and a bunch of games.

But now, after formatting my hard drive, and installing Windows 7 Home x64 from the disc, I am getting these error messages when I attempt to update -

Basically my old HDD died from bad sectors and I had to format and install Windows 7 Enterprise on a back up hdd that was flooded with useless documents from the past.

Went ahead done what I had to do and left Windows to check for updates, Steam install some games and League of Legends update.

However everything finished but Windows was still checking for updates and I noticed the svchost.exe (netsvcs one) uses about 1.5 GB out of 4 RAM. Immediately knew that this was caused by the Windows Update service that's under it.

However turning Windows Update off is never a smart thing to do and I don't have the kind of time to manually download updates.

I know that it will probably blast me with 200+ updates (has happened in the past but never used up so much RAM and finished way faster than 6 hours with all my usual post installation stuff.

Anyways some info you should probably know:
-I'm using a Wireless adapter (TP-LINK TL-WN722N) and I have read threads here that Windows Update would sometimes fail to do what it should with Wireless adapters, unfortunatelly that isn't an option at the moment.
-Resetting Windows Update manually and through Fix It doesn't work.

So first thing I'm looking at is updating the Windows Update client, please do tell if you think otherwise, or if not link me to the newest Windows update client or probbably any hotfixes that could fix the problem (never done this before and wouldn't want to mess up, so I decided to ask you guys )

My music computer started having problems with Windows 98 locking up at irregular intervals, and after a while the thing simply wouldn't boot up all the time. The lockups had been getting worse, so naturally I thought I had been vicitimized by some spyware/adware/virus infection and took measures. After countless hours, I finally gave up and bought a new hard drive, installed it, and put on a fresh copy of Windows 98 SE from my recovery CD.

It worked fine - for a while.

Now the computer is exhibiting the same symptoms with the new drive as it did with the old drive. I tried running the Seagate SeaTools to see if I could find any abmormalities and it checked out fine. What is odd is that the computer locks up at no particular place, with no particular interval of time. Quite often I can't even get it past the Windows splash screen.

My uneducated opinion is that this has to be a hardware issue, and I'm feeling frustrated by my inability to isolate the problem. If anyone can make suggestions as how I should proceed, I would be very grateful, indeed.

Hi everyone, I think I've got a fairly tricky problem here.
I just finished installing Windows 7 Pro (SP1 included) x64 on my laptop. Pretty much the first thing I did was go to check for updates. This was taking forever, and upon looking at the resource monitor, it appears that svchost (you can just which services
it's hosting) was hung at %50, or one CPU core. No HDD activity to speak of, just a process spinning its wheels.
I've tried multiple troubleshooting steps, from running the Update readiness tool (Which didn't find anything wrong), resetting windows update using multiple tools, running an SFC (which said the system was in perfect condition), and of course rebooting
several times in between.
Checking the CBS log file, there are many lines reading "Failed to internally open package. [HRESULT = 0x800F0805 - CBS_E_INVALID_PACKAGE]". Windows Update appears to soldier on past that however, where it apparently reads out its last cached package
(successfully it would seem) then stop dead. When I net stop wuauserv, the log seems to mention TrustedInstaller a few times, then that's about all the interesting information I can gather.
The WindowsUpdate.log file is not terribly helpful either; just before the hang it says "PT: Synchronizing extended update info", then it lists off a ServiceId and Server URL. Nothing after that!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
