Preferred Solution: Further simplifying servicing models for Windows 7 Updates (08-15-2016)

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.)

While we?ve spent a lot of time over the past year talking about Windows 10 (including new roadmap details), we know that organizations are still working with Windows 7 too, regularly updating their Windows 7 SP1 images to include the latest updates, app versions, and more. For those that are involved in that process, you?ve probably seen a display like this too many times:

New Windows 7 SP1 convenience rollup makes image creation much faster

We?re happy to announce today that we?re making available a new convenience rollup for Windows 7 SP1 that will help. This convenience rollup package, available to download from Microsoft Update Catalog, contains all the security and non-security fixes released since the release of Windows 7 SP1 that are suitable for general distribution, up through April 2016. Install this one update, and then you only need new updates released after April 2016.

And since this update can be injected into Windows 7 SP1 media, it?s fully supported to mount a Windows 7 SP1 image (WIM file), then inject this update into it. See Add or Remove Packages Offline for the details of how to do this.

This convenience update is completely optional; it doesn?t have to be installed and won?t even be offered via Windows Update ? you can choose whether or not you want to use it.

To apply this update, you must install the April 2015 servicing stack update for Windows 7 (KB3020369). You can read more about the Convenience rollup update for Windo... Read more

I received notification that 8 important updates were available. My heart sank, but I started Windows Update installing them and went away. When I came back my heart sank further when I found that the updates had been cancelled (see screenshot if I can post one here). Your instructions for posting about failed updates are to download System Update Readiness Tool, which I am supposed to run uninterrupted. It may take a few hours. Sorry, I do not have a few hours. Is there anything I can do in the meantime or do I trash my computer?

Dear IT Pros,
I have 2 questions that need your help and professional advice.
1) Does Microsoft has a tool to check whether a patch (KB) was superseded by another KB? In my case, I'm trying to search whether this KB4022715 and KB4025339 (both of this KB was released in 2017) was superceded
by another KB. This is because a security consultant has advised us to install both of this KB to prevent vulnerabilities but since it was released back in 2017, I suspect there must be a newer KB that supercedes it
2) Can advice what KB I need to download regarding this 2 bulletin ID CVE-2017-5715 and CVE-2019-11135? Can't seem to find it after much googling

Thanks in advance for the help

Hi, we are becoming more and more frustrated with the forced windows updates. These may help home users but professional products like servers are not for everyday users and sometimes require alot of configuration to get legacy applications to work.
Windows will at times force updates no matter what we choose in respect to disable them. It is NOT up to Microsoft to determine if or when the servers I am responsible for need to be patched. Any reading and research we have done here has only yielded the
ability to prolong the updates. Once installed over 50% of the servers give an endless spinning circle and require restore or rebuild, this has become unacceptable and has forced us to start testing our applications with different Linux flavors.

Is there a way to STOP the updates indefinitely?

Hello All,
I have a laptop that I've been trying to install updates on for the past seven days.  However, no matter what I seem to do, Windows Update shows the "Checking for updates" progress bar with the green marquee.  Here is what I've tried:

1.  Let it check for updates for two days continuously.
2.  Ensured that Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is activated.
3.  Made sure that the two services (BITS and Windows Update) are enabled and running.
4.  Reinstalled Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (twice now), and tried to run updates on a clean install.
5.  Made sure that the computer can connect to the internet.
6.  Tried AutoPatcher (on the previous install), which could download the updates, but would hang on installing them.

I'm running sfc /scannow to see if it finds anything, but this is currently a fresh install.  The only drivers installed are the ones that worked from install, and no new programs have been installed.

Are updates currently just broken for Windows in general, or specific versions of Windows (such as 7)?
Thanks in advance.

Good morning everyone,

I am once again having to ask for help here because I've been unable to install the Patch Tuesday updates released July 12th. (I received the "Updates available" notification yesterday afternoon, July 13th). WU just keeps searching endlessly, and after 2 hours, I restarted the computer to stop the process. (It could not be stopped in Task Manager).

(All day yesterday, July 13th, my CPU kept hovering in the 50% - 60% usage range both off-line and on-line. The only way I could get it to return to normal was what I did in Item # 2 shown below).

Also, NO error codes are being seen either.

Things I have tried thus far:

1. Ran full scans, including for rootkits with my ESET Smart Security, MBAM Premier, and SAS programs. NO issues found.

2. Opened Control Panel > Windows Updates, and changed the existing setting (i.e. Notify me of updates, but let me decide to download and install) to "Never check for updates". I then restarted the computer.

3. Ran the sfc /scannow command. NO issues reported.

4. Ran the SURT tool. The dialog box opened indicating it was initializing and said something about looking for updates. When I checked the computer several hours later, the dialog box said something like, "Installation complete". I closed the box.
However, none of the 10 Important updates (in this month's updates) were installed when I checked the WU list of installed updates.

Good evening everyone,

My issue is with today's 'Patch Tuesday' Windows Updates.

[System: Win7 Home Premium SP1 x64]. Computer is a standalone, not on any network, and used only by me.

Description of problem:

There were something like 14 - 16 important updates in today's batch. Most of them did NOT install. (Please see attached screenshots showing this + my current WU settings, at the bottom of this post).
NO error codes are being displayed. WU just keeps saying it is downloading updates. The 'download progress' remains at "0%" the entire time, however.

Resolutions attempted thus far:

1. Ran CCleaner, then tried to update again. No success.
2. Restarted computer 3 times, then attempted to update, without success.
3. UNCHECKED all updates except for 3, and tried updating just those 3.
Problem remains.
4. On the 3rd attempt, after waiting 15 minutes, I cancelled the download/installation.
5. Ran scans with ESET Smart Security (v9), MBAM Premier, and SAS. No issues were found.

My question: Is there an explanation for, & a resolution to, this problem?

The only potential explanation I could think of is the Windows Update servers are too busy???
(Don't recall having encountered this type of problem before).

Thank you for your for time and any help!

Hello, Peeps.

Windows 7 X64.

The following Recommended Updates were offered today. I had previous information on all except the last four, which I Googled today.
Most are, it seems, repetitions of the Windows 10 Update stuff that many of us avoided all those months ago. So the hassle would seem to be ongoing. However, the last one, KB3184143 is an uninstaller for several of those annoying very same W10 Updates. Odd. Giveth with one hand, taketh away with the other. A couple of the last four seem OK, and (KB3181988) I have been having problems with sfc/ scannow reporting 'corrupt files but unable to repair' for a while now. Maybe this will sort them out.
The information below is taken from several sources, and the credit belongs mostly to others. I'm just passing it on.

Hi:

GWX has ended.
MS even issued a patch to remove it from Win7-SP1 systems, KB3184143
If you want to subscribe to perpetual paranoia about getting Win10 on your Win7 box, that's up to you.

Also, the current version of KB2952664 has nothing to do with either GWX or telemetry:






Quote:
There is no GWX or upgrade functionality contained in this update.


As for the rest, I'll leave that to other members more interested in this topic than I am.
For the record, though, Apple and Google also use telemetry.
Telemetry cuts both ways -- without aggregate data about how an OS performs in the real world, MS cannot be expected to code needed security and stability patches for Windows or its other major software (such as Office) that will perform properly.
I find it ironic that some of the folks who most loudly decry "telemetry" are the same folks who are first to complain about a "bad" patch on Patch Tuesday. (That's not directed at you personally or anyone else in particular.)

There is a definitive solution. If one destroys all of one's electronic and analog communication and computing devices, physically cuts all cables, fiber-optic lines and other connections to the outside world (not just the internet), and cuts up all of one's credit/debit cards, one can be reasonably safe.

Microsoft confirms no more Windows 10 feature updates in 2016; two coming in 2017

Microsoft published a TechNet blog post on Tuesday regarding what's new in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. In the article, the company confirmed that it has two feature updates planned for 2017, but no more for this year.

Based on feedback from organizations moving to Windows 10, this will be our last feature update for 2016, with two additional feature updates expected in 2017.

The news is right in line with current rumors. Tuesday's Anniversary Update would be the one feature update for this year, and Redstone 2 - the codename for the next major Windows 10 update - isn't slated to arrive until April 2017. Redstone 3 is rumored as well, but without any release timing, so with today's news, it's presumably late 2017.

It's also in line with what Microsoft has already said. Back in May, the firm said that it would be pushing two feature updates for Windows 10 every year.

The obvious question that you're probably asking is, if Microsoft said that it would release two updates per year, why would the company only release one this year? Well, when Microsoft says the word 'year', it could mean a calendar year, or it could mean a fiscal year, which would be over at the end of June. With that in mind, the firm has released two major updates for Windows 10 every year, and is on pace to do so, even with Redstone 2 coming in April.

After having installed the Windows 7 04/2016 updates today, I found that I couldn't start Firefox anymore - it just hangs and uses up 1 core. Then I tried IE - hangs and eats up another core. Same for Chrome and Opera. Then I began to suspect EMET and started
Word 2010, Adobe Reader, Thunderbird, WL Mail - all the same. Applications not opted into EMET continued to work.
I then tried to deactivate EMET's mitigations one by one and found that I had to disable "EAF" mitigation to use my apps again.

(I didn't yet try to find out which of the updates is the root of this by uninstalling 1 by 1, since WU took so long (hours) to find updates _at all_ that I haven't yet dared... Maybe later I'll try to install the updates manually on another machine and
see if I find sth.)

I updated their programs from a CD-R that I had brought with me. I uninstalled AVG Free 9 and then installed Microsoft Security Essentials to replace it. I also installed the current versions of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware to replace the very outdated versions. There were several XP updates that hadn't been installed.

Here is where I ran into a problem. Although I was able to get on-line and load webpages with IE8 and Firefox, I was unable to get the Windows Updates site to load. I was also unable to get MSSE and MBAM and SAS to update because of an alleged connection problem.

I've never run into this situation before and am stumped, so I've decided to ask for help here.

Now! ESET has just released their newest security suite: ESET Smart Security 9 (2016 Edition). These products are on the top of security suites which are produced by giants on security companies. Most of them released 2016 editions of their products. I want to compare on their newest products with new features (such as on ESET: Banking Protection, Bitdefender: Ransomware Protection and new Firewall, etc...) and some enhanced features.

And now, which is your choose for your security? Please let me know your opinion!

Hello,
Running Windows 10 Pro 1511 10586.545. On the 10th the system updated :
Security Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3172729)

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool for Windows 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2 x64 Edition - August 2016 (KB890830)

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3176493).

I had updates on automatic. Subsequently I one Blue apology screen, otherwise all seemed fine until this morning. I left the computer for about 10 minutes and upon my return, it was rebooting. Nothing I had been doing should have caused that. The rebooting process was quite overly long as if it was installing an update. Once back up, I checked for any updates and none were shown. I began investigating and identified that I had 1511 and the Windows update info page show it correctly and another version ?Anniversary Version? 1607. I noticed this section:

Not knowing if the 1607 upgrade would cause the loss of my Pro version I looked and could not understand the above Windows 10 Servicing policy.................................... Why should/would I defer upgrades ???

I decided to solicit some help here on the forum. Unfortunately while typing my first attempt question, my computer did another Blue Apology screen crash.

I am mainly concerned about the unsolicited and as yet unexplained lengthy restart. Also about why the Servicing Policy would mention Windows 10 Pro and the difference from I am assuming ... Read more

A:Windows 10 Servicing Options for Window 10 Pro update blurb

As I understand things, Windows 10 Pro gives users the ability to kinda, sorta customize how updates and upgrades are handled. I'm running 10 Pro v1511. When I click Start > Settings > Update & security > Advanced options, I see this dialog box:

You can choose to have updates installed automatically (recommended by Microsoft) or you could have Microsoft notify you to schedule a restart when it's most convenient for you. You can also select how updates are delivered. You can select to receive updates from one source (Microsoft) or from more than one source. (Microsoft says this could speed up app and update downloads.)

But also on the above dialog box is an option to Defer upgrades. An upgrade is when Windows 10 receives a major overhaul (like going from v1511 to v1607.) Some folks want to wait a while to make sure the bugs are ironed out and they don't want updates downloading/installing the latest upgrade.

As far as a lengthy restart after installing the latest updates, all I can tell you is my computers took an average of 30 minutes to finish the process. I'm guessing that was due in part to my ISP's download speed as well as the scan done by Microsoft's monthly Malicious Malware Removal Tool.

I hope this helps a bit. If not, I apologize for taking up your time.

April 2015 servicing stack update for Windows 7 (KB3020369) & files dates and versions
Hi!
Windows 7 Professional SP1 (x64). Checked - April 2015 servicing stack update for Windows 7 (KB 3020369) is installed (listed), but ... when I check files pointed in KB article (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020369) then only file I see is dated and versioned as in article is Poqexec.exe (6.1.7601.18766 142,336 18-Feb-2015 07:04). I'm bit confused. Other files (most of those, at least, not checked all) is dated back to 2010. Is that ok? Don't see any problems running Windows's (not one, but several machines I already checked have same "oddity"). This update installed via Windows Update, presumably.
Drvstore.dll is 6.1.7601.17514 (11/21/2010 05:24), but in article it should be (after KB3020369 installed) as 6.1.7601.18766 (18-Feb-2015 07:05).
I missed something? Any ideas?
More thanks, Alar.

I have been trying over and over again and wasting hours trying to download critical updates for my Vista 32 with no luck. It just keeps saying "Checking for Updates." The same thing happened last month. Why isn't this working? So many wasted hours and anxiety. Is anyone else having same problem and what are you doing about it? MS should know about this problem. I've had problems downloading critical updates for Vista 32, Win 7 64 and Win 10 64.
Why is this continuing each month?
Can anyone help me with how to download the Vista 32 downloads PLEASE? I am 80 years old and as I said, wasting a lot of time and energy on this.
