Windows Updates Not Installing : Error Unknown (Sits on Installing)

Q: Windows Updates Not Installing : Error Unknown (Sits on Installing)


To give you some back story, I built my computer the end of August 2012. Ran Smoothly. I decided to get a 60 gig SSD to be the partition that stored Windows. I didnt have much stored on the Main HD so I deleted my original 2TB HD and tried installing on the SSD... found that the SSD was bad and sent it back. Decided just to stick with the 2TB HD. Had some issues installing windows back onto the HD as it would just hang up. Finally managed to get windows installed, had some "Not genuine" issues but that resolved after multiple restarts. That brings me to where I am at today and I feel as though the system has been getting worse. I would normally be fine with just a clean install but with all the issues I had with that initially I am very skeptical of trying it again. I have 5 important updates and 7 optional updates all of which do not install. The Installer just sits on Downloading updates and I have left it overnight with still no result. I am not sure if this is even my main issue but I am beyond the point of figuring it out myself so any help would be appreciated

I downloaded the System Readiness Tool and it Ran. I tried running the sfc /scannow in Admin cmd prompt mode and get a "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation" I attached my CBS file. Any help you could give or guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Windows Updates Not Installing : Error Unknown (Sits on Installing)

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: Windows Updates Not Installing : Error Unknown (Sits on Installing)

Hello and welcome Faticus just as matter of interest why did you give up on the SSD? was not it under warranty?

That is heck of a drive to be installing on mate just how did you prepare it for the install?

You can run a chkdsk in Windows too > My Computer > right click on the drive > Properties > Tools > Check now - then follow the points in my pic.
You then reboot and it will start a chkdsk (in DOS).

Windows updates keeps installing/reinstalling the same update over and over again. I looked in my update history and it shows that they are installed successfully every time. What should I do and is this using space on my laptop by re-installing over and over again?

A:Solved: Windows updates keeps installing/re-installing the same update over and over

It is not using any space. Right-click the ones you already have and hide them so they don't come back.

Please help!

I just bought my computer 2 weeks ago .. I filled in my specs and also uploaded my system info information as an attachment. Last night, I tried to download the windows 8.1 update. I let it run over night, but this morning when I woke, I had a blue screen that said windows could not fix my problem .. and gave me options to try. I ended up having to wipe my computer to factory conditions. After the restore .. the only thing I installed before downloading updates was my driver for my NVIDIA Geforce750 Ti card, and my wireless network adapter ..

I then downloaded 91 updates .. everyone failed .. and every one didn't install .. error 800F0922. I scoured the net and found a suggestion to scan for problems .. I typed ..

sfc /scannow .. got to 51% .. then ..
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.log windir\logs\cbs\cbs.log. For example C:\windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log. Note that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios.

I tried to upload the file, but it says I don't have access. I can't even read it because I don't have access .. so I don't even know what the corrupt files are or how to fix them ..

If needed I can list all the KB's .. but 91 will take a good long time to list. I'm hoping someone can tell me what to do! I'm not the tech-savviest, but I'm not drooling at the screen either.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I recently refreshed my Windows 8 installation as I had experienced a problem with graphics drivers which left my PC barely running.

The refresh seemed to go fine, albeit slowly, yet my computer was back up and running as it always had been. However, when I then attempted to reinstall the windows updates and programs I had lost in the refresh, it would fail for all updates with
error code 800F0922. Furthermore, several 3rd party programs would fail to install, citing a 'microsoft.vc80.crt' error.

I was unable, therefore, to update to Windows 8.1 through the Windows Store (as this requires a readiness-for-8.1 update for Windows 8) which required me to update through a disc copy burnt from an .iso downloaded with my key. I had hoped the installation
of Windows 8.1 would fix my problem, however it did not - I am experiencing exactly the same errors with all Windows updates and certain programs.

I have determined from a large trawl of the internet and Microsoft forums that my problem is related to a problem in the installation of .Net Framework 3.5. I therefore followed all given instructions as to turn this feature on and fix it.
When attempting to install .Net Framework reliant products, I receive Error 1935.

Let me be clear in this situation: The following fixes I have tried have all taken place on my recently-refreshed machine both normal and clean-booted, from elevated-level command prompt where applicable and with no 3rd party

I recently wiped my hard drive with dban using the autonuke option. It ran fine and finished sucesfully. I then installed windows 7 home premium x64 on that same hard drive. That also ran fine. I then updated through windows update, and some updates did install, inluding service pack 1. The bsod happens when running automatic updates in windows. It downloads all the updates fine, but when it gets to installing the last few, or at least from what I can tell since the progress bar is almost full, the bsod happens. It says bad pool header 0x019 etc. Malware bytes free trial premium was running while installing the updates.

A:BSOD when installing windows updates, error 0x019

mvac.sys appears to be the issue which is part of malwarebytes. I've never known Malwarebytes causing issues.
It might be due to you have the free trial of premium which we always recommend you disable.

The best option I can think of is to uninstall Malwarebytes altogether and then install it again by following these settings.

Custom built my own computer back in May, and everything was working fine, then one day, updates kept failing and failing. I've gone through lots of Microsoft support pages but didn't find anything. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, verified. The OS is loaded on a Kingston v300 240gb ssd if that matters.

What happens is I go to shut down, and it will bring up the updates screen. 1 of 24, 2 of 24, and then it jumps to 14 of 24, then jumps to 24, then shuts down. The error code (after going into the manual updates and seeing why they failed) was 800B0100. Any way to fix this or am I gonna have to re-install the OS?

Hey all,
Been tinkering with this laptop, I just installed a fresh copy of W7 Ult, and was looking to put Chinese display language on there. At first all the updates were working out fine, but now I've hit a roadblock...
My language pack doesn't install, and just spits out the 800b0100 error code. No other windows updates install either..
Here's what I did:
Scoured the internet
chkdsk /r
sfc /scannow
Update Readiness Tool
Easyfix 50202
Reset update components
Tried downloading the language pack from a website and installing it that way (both exe, and the lp file)
I feel like I've done everything under the sun and still can't get the thing to install this language pack.
Any advice?

My friends PC was having trouble booting due too a Shell32.dll file being missing apparently??

Well he bought a new one rather than get it repaired and gifted me the old one as I said I could maybe fix it for myself as its a decent PC!!

My answer was just to install XP again, clean install not repair, problem is everytime I run the disc after the files load I get and error message saying "Unknown Hard Error" on a blue screen and it goes no further!! :(

I tried another hard drive and exactly the same thing happened, I tried reseting all to factory defaults settings in the setup, still the same and I'm stumped!!

I Googled the life out of it but haven't found any solution other than suggesting there could be a conflict between the PC and a Zip Disc drive but this machine never had one installed at any point!!

Can anybody assist here, I would be grateful for the help!! :)

Since installing a bundle of updates last week (I'm not sure it that's related or not, but that happens to be when this started), I've been getting an error everytime I start the computer. I've attached a snip of the error. It seems it's an error opening an HTML file called "dnserrordiagoff_weboc". I have no idea what this is or why it's trying to open it. I looked to see if it was just a random thing that was added to my startup, but there's nothing in the startup folder.

What is this and how can I get rid of the error?

Any help would be so appreciated; it's very annoying!

Error installing driver updates

Open Gateway site map. Click on “My Down loads” under “Drivers and Downloads”. A page opens up and I select my operating system – Windows XP. A page opens up showing 10 or 12 driver updates. I click on the first one and a page opens up showing buttons for download instructions and install instructions. I download the first update to my desk top and an icon shows up there. I click on it nothing happens or I get an error message.

C:\Cabs\d20003-003 refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly installed, or that you are connected to the Internet or your
Network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location.

I intrepid this as meaning some files were missing so I ran Scannow and it didn’t find anything wrong

If some one can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.


A:error installing driver updates

C:\Cabs is the default folder where Gateway drivers extract to when you unzip them. It has nothing to do with Windows, that is why scannow didn't find anything. Either the driver installer is expecting the folder to already be there, or is unable to create it. Do you have problems installing any other software on the C drive?

I think the problem has something to do with writing permissions, because I can't install microsoft office 2010 either. When trying to install microsoft office it only installs it partially, after which it says that I don't have the privileges to write something to my E drive.

Any help would be appreciated!

IoGear GBU321 USB to Bluetooth device.
Prior to downloading updates my USB - Bluetooth device worked great after the 89 updates then the 5 updates which one was Windows 7 64 Bit service pack 1, my device stops working.
Here is what pops up when i try to use it:
BTWUIEtx has stopped working.
-> Check online for solutions and close program.
-> Close program.
Of course I checked for online solution and nothing happens it just closes the program. I need this Bluetooth adapter to work. My only solution at this point is reinstalling the O.S. and not letting any windows updates in.
Anyone have any suggestions???

A:IoGear GBU321 gives an error after installing updates.

Hi repinscales

I have an IO Gear GBU421 and it's working fine under Windows 7 x64 SP1 and all other updates.

I would suggest you completely uninstall the IO Gear software and try reinstalling it again. Don't use the drivers from the disk you have get them here - Drivers & Manuals - IOGEAR

Here's a warning for my adapter - IOGEAR TIL Document # 328. Not sure this applies to you but it's something to take note of.

You could also try using the Broadcom drivers as discussed here.... Latest Broadcom Bluetooth Driver

Let us know.

The last 2 or 3 times I've tried to install daily updates to my system, which runs Windows XP Pro, I have been receiving the following error message,

error creating process <c:\docume~1\DAD~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\IXP000.TMP\dahotfix.exe /q/n>. Reason: The system cannot find the path specified.

and then the update install is aborted.

Before I did a system restore to see if I could fix this, I figured I'd give it a shot here to see if anyone else has ever had a problem like this.

Thanks a ton for any suggestions.

So yea, today i was surfing the net then I decided to close my laptop then I saw that it needed a shut down and needed to update some vista stuff. So I clicked shutoff then the updates started and ended.
Then after a few after dining, I wanted to go on my laptop so I started it, the updates started and then was stuck at 25% for like 30 minutes so I decided to force shutdown.
After forcing shutdown, I restarted the laptop, then it brought me to the Windows Error Recovery.
(Safe mode, Safe mode with networking, Safe mode with command Promt, Last known good config, Start Windows Normally )
I tried em all and it still brought me to that blue screen of Death. ( the Blue screen appears too fast and shut down quickly for me to read what it says )
Then it restarts and do the same thing again and again

I lost my Vista premium CD and all. What to do?

I am attempting to correct an issue with Windows stating my copy is not genuine, I am also unable to install Windows updates, which I presume is part of the same issue. What I've done so far: I was able to run slui 3 and enter my key from the sticker and it was accepted. Thought maybe this solved issue but still can't update. Ran chkdsk /r and scannow. Both completed, with scannow giving the message: "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them." Ran the MS tool to correct update issues. Says it fixed the issue but installation of updates still bombs out. Finally I found a post elsewhere about removing KB971033 so I did that...of course I noticed in other posts here that that wasn't a great idea. Unfortunately with my inability to run Windows Update, I can't correct that now.

I just ran the MGDiag tool and results are below:

Okay so when I try to install updates, I get an error after about 11% of the download. It says: "Some updates were not installed
"Failed: 4 updates"
"Error(s) found:"
"Code 80070426 Windows Updates encountered an unknown error."
I'm been researching but couldn't find anything that would help my situation. I also saw a lot of "reformatting would be the best option"
- Problem with that is, it's my brothers laptop and I don't believe it came with a Vista disc. So if there was a way to avoid reformatting that would be great. Please help

I am running Windows 7 64-bit on an Alienware M14x.

Okay, let me list out all the problems.

It will not install updates correctly, meaning it will reboot two times before it says, "failure to update, reverting changes" and allow me to log into my computer. Sometimes it will take 15 minutes per "Configuring Windows, please wait" screen.

It is also not allowing me to download Microsoft Office 2010. I keep getting this error code:
Error 1935. An error occurred during the installation of assembly component {A75F2217-AD54-3EA6-AE14-F255F8660531}. HRESULT: 0x8007054F.

And none of the updates are sticking.

Every time I close out of Windows Update after installing a Security update, it says there are updates available, and it's another Security update. wtf? Also, I get the error code "Code BC9, Windows Update encountered an unknown error" when it tries to install Internet Explorer, so that doesn't install either.

I did a diagnostic test, and nothing came up as an actual system error, so it's just all Windows itself.

Here is the HijackThis log.

Edit: I ran a full scan on Microsoft Security Essentials and it found a trojan and two other issues. I promptly removed them. However it still didn't repair my update issues (which might be due to a connectivity problem) or my Microsoft Office 2010 problem.

I'm a total noob on this forum, so I tried to follow the instructions on posting.

Firstly, when you read PERFMON, it'll say my HDD is failing. I know that. I know it's stupid to use a failing HDD, but my data is backed up, and I get my Mac on Saturday. Anyways,

Last night, around 1:30 AM, I got up to shut down my computer, it was on, and in the same room as me, and I wanted sleep. So, I went to the start menu, and saw the update icon next to shut down. I shut down the machine instead of sleeping, so it could update. I turn off the monitor to go to sleep. I then hear the fans ramp up, then slow down, and the computer "click" like it does when it shuts off. But, the fans were still running. I turned on a lamp, and sat down. I turned on the monitor, to be facing a big fat BSoD. It didn't give me an exact message of what happened, just a STOP error code. The STOP error code was 0x0000001e, and the BCCode is 1e.

Failing hard drives can cause BSOD's. But most importantly - they can die without any notice at all. Backup all your stuff immediately!!!

Win7 doesn't like wireless USB devices. You have a Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with SpeedBooster ver.2
Here's my rant about these devices:

I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

The memory dump points to networking stuff - and your networking drivers (both wired and wireless USB) are from 2008. This means that it's most likely that the wireless USB drivers are causing the error (although the wired drivers are suspect also).

Please update all of your networking drivers. Be sure to use ONLY Win7 compatible drivers.

Recently I booted up an old Windows 7 PC which has not been updated since February. I tried to search for updates to install them, but Windows will not search for updates. Other Steam users reported the same issue as well. It seems that Microsoft is intentionally nerfing Windows 7 to get people to upgrade to Windows 10. If that's the case, should I just retire Windows 7 and upgrade the old machine to Windows 10? I know that Windows 10 will update much faster and boot faster as well, but will I run into any issues with drivers on outdated hardware? I have a bunch of bloatware, such as Cyberlink PowerDVD, which I really don't need anymore. My parents will be using it at their residence and I will be using it from time to time during visits.

Old laptop HP win7 32bit was not updated more than an year. Auto updating doesn't work so the only way is downloading the updates manually and installing  them using windows standalone installer one by one. So the computer works much better and faster but there blinking black screens that appear at starting. After the win logo few black blinking screens than black screen with cursor after that welcome screen than again blinking black screen and the computer starts and works fine. Same problem at shutting down. So my question is should i continue installing updates? Also i disabled avast twice to install net framework security updates. Thanks for any help.

A:installing too many windows updates

 Install all the updates and keep current.  I've never had a problem with that practice with Windows 7, 8, or 10.  However I don't install optional updates except in very rare circumstances where I'm sure I need to.
 Good luck.

I must let you know that in the past i always had my laptop on sleep mode, as a result i missed some updates. Moreover, sometimes because i was in a hurry despite the fact that windows mentioned that i must not power off the laptop when installing updates, i did. Thank you for your time and patience

Hi All..

I'm not sure if I'm in the right catagory for this question. Slap my hands if I am!I'm far from being a computer Guru, more or less a computer Dork I'm using Win XP and ie explorer. I under stand what Win updates are, OK! But am concerned about updating to service Pak 3, because I have heard about a lot of problems with it and folks having to do a complete re install after updating, etc, I have had a icon in my task that keeps popping up and saying, Up dates are ready for your computer.Click icon to install these updates.

I have a fear that one of them may be Service Pak 3, and I don't want to install it at this time. I'm also a afraid that it will start an Automaitc install of the updates.I do have Service Pak 3 that I ordered from MS, but don't want to mess with it at this time either.

My question is..?Is there a way I can find out just what updates they before getting stuck with a Auto install I can't stop if I click on the icon??? As told by others I have went to Control Panel, and opened WIn updates, and it says I have 2 updates ready for install, but it doesn't say what they are. Am open for any advice or Help how I find out what updates they are before installing them..

Thanks Anyone..
