Windows 7 x64 update 2019-02 Security Monthly Quality Rollup (KB4486563) keeps failing to install // error code 8004005, also sudden 100% cpu usage PLEASE HELP!

Q: Windows 7 x64 update 2019-02 Security Monthly Quality Rollup (KB4486563) keeps failing to install // error code 8004005, also sudden 100% cpu usage PLEASE HELP!

So few days ago at night my computer fans got louder than usual and i just closed my computer but after that night my cpu usage and overall performance has gone worse than what it has ever been.
I can barely keep software's up anymore without them slowing down my whole computer and i'm not sure if it's all because this update that has keep failing and the fact that my computer isn't up to date without it.

Things i have tried to fix the cpu usage/ windows update problem:
?disabled most startup programs
?did sfc/scannow but it didn't help
?ran all avast cleanups (no viruses found)
?re installed avast and avast cleanup
?disabled some unnecessary parts of avast to help with cpu but it didn't fix the problem
?made sure that there isn't multiple antivirus
softwares up at the same time
?opened up my computer case and cleaned fans,case etc from dust (i think this helped a bit with the cpu but my computer still can't handle any games that it was able to handle
few days ago)
?tried downloading and manually installing the update but even then it failed
?ran Windows Update troubleshooter and tried to
fix windows updates but it didn't help either
?disabled superfetch but it didn't do anything so i turned
it back on

+ my computer has 201 Gt of free space so i don't think that's causing the cpu problem either.
i'd be really happy if someone could help me with these issues that i am facing.

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 x64 update 2019-02 Security Monthly Quality Rollup (KB4486563) keeps failing to install // error code 8004005, also sudden 100% cpu usage PLEASE HELP!

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.)


Every time I try to install it, on the reboot, it gets about 50% to 56% complete, then hangs.  I have let it run 15 minutes or more and it will not complete.  
It would be nice if there is a way to see if it really is running.  Normally I assume that there should be at least 1% progress per minute.  A better indication of running or hung would be helpful.
Fortunately the rollback works.

Hi there, for a few days now I've had the Windows 7 Update shield next to my Shut Down button no matter how many times it is "installed". Looking in the Update History, I found the title of this post and pasted it. It has failed multiple attempts
to install. I  have tried the Windows update troubleshooter and that didn't work so I then tried to open CMD and type the command Ren
%systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.bak (as instructed by https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10164/fix-windows-update-errors) but then was  hit with "Access Denied" in the CMD. 

I think it is also having an effect on my internet as it has been terribly slow when trying to use my PC for online gaming.

My specs:
Windows 7 x64
Nvidia Asus Geforce 970 OC
Intel i7 860 2.8 ghz 
14gb DDR3 Ram

I would be grateful for any help. Thank you.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue ? It's the 1st time I am having this issue (Laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro L300)
1) I updated first MS Essential : OK
2) I updated KB4103718 [2018-05 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64]. Message : "Update successfuly installed (but it's NOT ! See below). Restart your computer". Then I restarted my computer and...
Then, everything goes wrong:
1) Windows refuses to start (frozen on MS logo)=>
        a) I shut down my laptop manually (Power button) =>

        b) I restart my laptop and a dialog box recommends "startup repair" : I pressed Enter and then the system searches for "repairs" eternally... => I shut down the laptop manually again.
2) I re-re-started my computer and... Windows starts normally.
3) When I checked for the installed Update : "failed" appears... for KB4103718 [2018 roll up] but 2018-05 Security & quality Roll up for .NET FRAMEWORK (KB4099633) is installed for the 3rd time
4) I got a message to install KB4103718 AND KB4099633.
P.S.: A tec checked my laptop and fixed 2 issues on the Registry and System files, did a restor point to the 8th of May since the issue appeared last week. I got the Error message 0x8000ffff last week.

For over a year occasionally, the Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x86-based Systems and Security and Quality Rollup
for NET Framework fails to installs and sends my computer into a restart loop until I start in safe and hide the update.
All other updates install ok.
The latest to fail is KB4507449, KB4507420, KB4507449,
and KB4474419.
In command prompt I have ran SFC/ scannow and Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
I have reset Windows Update components and all seems ok.
I have tried to manually install the updates from Microsoft update catalog with no luck.
Anybody know how to fix this?

Thank you for all your support and security updates for my two Surface RTs. 
They?re great and I don?t want to see them go.  A quick aside? It would be nice for my two Surface RTs and me, if Microsoft had a change of heart and decided to port Windows 10 RT with Office RT for Surface RT and get a few
more years support.  Anyway.
Today one of my Surface RT 8.1 provided the option on shut down, to update and restart, which I did. 
It said it was installing 4 updates.  When rebooted, I went to view update history and found two failed updates and three successful ones for a total of five. 
The first one in the list that failed is this one here below.

Then to get more information, I clicked the link shown there for 4048958 to learn more. 
That took me to the Microsoft Security Update Guide, where I searched for 4048958 and was provide two links for RT 8.1. 
Both links, one for IE11 and one for RT 8.1, go to the KB 4048958 article, which says to get more information, go to the Security Update Guide, which of course takes one back to the KB. 
Not very informative loop I guess.
The second update that is on the list above showing as failed, is the one for Adobe to prevent remote code execution. 
When I am in Windows Update and double-click the failed entry for Adobe, and then click the link for more information, it takes me to a URL that does not show a KB number and provides a link for more i... Read more

I am from National Insruments, we have a software product called Lookout, when we install the update 2017-06 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4022719), there is a problem for window to pop up.
In our software, there is a control panel(panel 1), in panel 1,there is a button(button1) which is connected to another control panel(panel2).
If we click button1, panel can pop up. Before we install the update, the normal action is panel can pop up on the top layer, which can been seen in the following picture.
But after we install the ipdate, the phenomenon is strange, when clicking button2, panel 2 can pop up, but under panel1, we have to click on the button for another time, then panel 2 can show up in the front, this phenomenon is not expected.
I wonder if there are some changes causing this reaction. For example, modifying register key of fixed value of windows parameters , anyone has any ideas or recommendations?

Trouble is, the update will not install. It will attempt to do so several times, before I get the message that there is a "reverting" to the computer's previous status. I haven't the option of not letting this happen repeatedly, since every time I turn off the computer the same nightmare begins. Then, it's very difficult to get things going again the next time I turn on the computer. The update is said to be "critical" to security, so I'd like to have it on the machine, but....

resetting the WU client, scf /scannow, installing from local WSUS, installing online from Microsoft and installing from the offline installer downloaded from the update catalog. Nothing works. I don't see anything in the cbs log and all I see in Event Viewer

I'm really have a time in my Windows 7 Embedded development environment. If it not WEDU, or the AnswerFile.xml, it's something else. This time the DISM command fails to build my WIM file. I discovered information about the log entry I receives in the diam.log.

My error is similar to the above statement which I found referenced at Use Log Files to Diagnose Image Builder

I've been getting failures for windows updates, specifically the quality and security rollups on Windows 7 (e.g. KB4489878). The error code reported is always 8024200D. However, this is not limited to just the March 2019 Rollup. Apparently it it has been happening
for each month's rollup for a while now. Other security and .NET updates install fine - it's just the rollups.

I've been through several of the steps mentioned on forum posts, including as well as MS's automated guide.

Hello there everyone, 
I encountered a serious issue after installing the latest Monthly Rollup from June 2019 on our Windows 7 clients. 
Apparently, we can no longer add nor edit already existing scheduled tasks that have been created with AT commands. However, the already existing scheduled tasks appear to execute with no problem, so the functionality is still given. 
I double- and even triple checked it through uninstalling the coresponding KB article. Thereafter, I still wasn't able to add new AT Scheduled Tasks through GUI, but it worked through our scripts and regular cmd-use without any problems. Plus, the pre-existing
AT-jobs continued to work on, regardless of the KB-Article KB-4503292 being installed or uninstalled on the systems. When trying to add a new AT-job into scheduled task, the Scheduled Task Manager GUI sends a message of an unexpected knot. The job does
not appear in the GUI, either. It's merely represented with the Error message. Deleting it through CMD is still possible, which clears the Scheduled Task Manager off of the Error Message. 
Since I wasn't able to find anything conclusive online regarding this issue, I am seriously hoping someone here has any idea about this occurance. I am well aware AT is rather old and got sort of replaced through other means and commands (such as schtasks).
Since AT wasn't even an option anymore to select from the GUI for quite some time now, I can only assume at this point this is some... Read more

On one of the Windows 7 PC's that I'm administering, an error occurs since the monthly rollup update of March.

To be more specific: I have 2 problems:
1. (general) formerly, when an update didn't fit a machine, you could hide this one and go further with your update-life; now, because of the cumulative character, the problem is repeated in the monthly rollup since then, so I can't solve it with this strategy
(and I can't think of anything else to get around it, except disabling updates at all)
2. (specific) then rests the conflict itself and I searched the internet for somebody who had the same problem, no luck; it seems that my Intel RAID1 (recent driver) crashes just before the logonscreen, the PC reboots, undoing the update(s) and the (hardware)
RAID1 is recovering itself, taking 2-3 hours.
Standard procedures like clean boot, reset WU etc. didn't work out; and yes, I followed the Windows update troubleshooter, it concludes after all steps I need to go to Windows 10 - but Windows 7 is supported until 2020 and do I know the problem will stay
away, even when migrating? (rhetorical question)

After install
March 2017 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 8.1(KB4012219), Windows Defender update to version 4.10.209, but I find a small bug in Registry Setting.


In Registry, it look like this

This value is useless, because thers is no MSASCuiL.exe in Windows Defender 4.10.209 for Windows 8.1,

In Windows 10 v1607 this is taskbar notification icon launcher for Windows Defender

So I think Microsoft's Developers might batter delete this value for Windows 8.1(also RT 8.1), or add this EXE file for Windows 8.1(also RT 8.1)

Im a little behind on this new Windows 7 monthly updating issue.

I did not install the October Monthly Rollup KB3185330 so my latest update superceded this with providing the November Monthly Rollup KB3197868 in early November which as I understand the process, was correct. I did not yet install that one either.

Being that the December Rollup is due out tomorrow, I was going to install the above November Rollup.
But when I run the Windows Update it gives me the October Monthly Rollup KB3185330.

Has MS withdrawn the November Monthly Rollup KB3197868 as I am sure it was there yesterday.

I'm trying to gather a list of KB #s addressing a specific vulnerability as well as all of the remediations that supersede the originals, if that makes sense. 
For example, I'm searching for CVE-2017-0144. The immediate remediations are listed under https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/security-updates/securitybulletins/2017/ms17-010 , such as 4012598
However, if I search through the update catalog: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=4012598 I can see that for some products the original update has been replaced by another one, with a different KB id, for example for Microsoft
server 2008 it's replaced by 4018466.
The problem arises where the data obtained through the API does not provide information about most cumulative updates and monthly quality rollup previews.
Going through the update catalog we can find that there was a preview 4012220 containing the patch, but the API doesn't provide this so through the tool we don't know that 4012220 also protects against wannacry. So if a user has 4012220 installed
on the machine, we can't programmatically determine they are protected since 4012220 isn't in the wannacry remediation list.
My question is, is there any way to find the FULL list of KB# without web scraping the update catalog? Is there perhaps a different API I could use to get a full list of KB# that include a certain vulnerability fix?
Thanks in advance.

Here's the scenario:
Our server admins are distributing the month "Security Only" updates for .NET Framework via WSUS yet our vulnerability scanner triggered with these two alerts:

After multiple attempts over the course of several weeks, I have been unable to get Windows Update 2019-06 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4503292) to successfully install on one of my personal laptops (error codes:
"WindowsUpdate_80073701" "WindowsUpdate_dt000"). I have tried all of the recommendations made in this thread: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/221a12a3-6cbb-4205-bcf3-150efa0ba437/repeatedly-failed-to-install-security-monthly-quality-rollup-for-windows-7-for-x64based-systems?forum=w7itprosecurity
(I had to deactivate the hyperlink because I just created an account for this forum and it hasn't been verified yet) along with several other fixes that I found on other threads/forums, and the update still fails to install either manually or automatically. 
I would just upgrade to Windows 10, but I bought this computer from a company that wipes, refurbishes, and resells retired corporate machines, and the Windows sticker/activation key on the bottom of the computer are for something called Windows 7 OA. 
When I enter it in as prompted by the Windows 10 upgrade, it says that the activation key isn't valid.  If someone could please offer a solution to either the failed update problem or the activation key issue, I would be very grateful.  Thank you!

I write here because I was directed here form Microsoft Community Forum. I would be very grateful for any help to solve a below described problem.
Problem description: After successful installation of above updates computers need to reboot, after rebooting system can only start in safe mode, otherwise it reboots endlessly. After starting
system in a safe mode updates are automatically reverted and then system starts normally. Updates need to be hidden. All other updates are successful.
Configuration: The problem occurs on three identical dell vostro 230 desktops (all connected to a domain). All other domain computers are unaffected. Specifications of affected computers: Windows
7 PRO 32 bit, Core2 Duo processors.
What have been done:

all steps from an article ?Fix Windows Update issues? except of resetting and reinstalling Windows (no effect)uninstalling Eset Endpoint Antivirus (no effect)doing a clean boot  (no effect)using command sfc /scannow (no errors found)trying to install updates from another domain account (no effect)updating drivers using dell update application (all drivers have been already up to date)
Maybe it is relevant (or maybe not), but while checking system log I have found an error event no 7026 (after each update try): failure to load following startup drivers: 
AFD, CSC, DfsC, discache, ehdrv, NetBIOS, NetBT, nsiproxy, Psched, rdbss, spldr, tdx, Wanarpv6, WfpLwf. I see also many other errors that some system services such as DH... Read more

I am unable to install Security update for windows 7 for x64 based system KB3006226. It keeps giving me an error code 80073712. I have tried every suggestion on the Microsoft website and the problem still continues. I have been working on this for a month now. The programs I have used can not find the issue. I am unable to attach my logs to this post. This is the first time I have used this.

Hey guys,
I've been wondering about one thing...
According to Microsoft Update Catalog, quite a few .NET updates for Windows 7 SP1 have been superseeded by the October's 2016 Security and Quality Rollup for the .NET Framework 3.0 SP 2, 4.5.2, and 4.6 (KB3188744). For example: KB3163251 (MS16-091)
or KB3142033 (MS16-065)
OK, fine. Everything would be OK, except one thing. The KB3188744 is only for Windows Vista SP2 and Windows Server 2008 SP2 according to the KB article description and the name itself: 

October, 2016 Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.0, 4.5.2, 4.6 on Windows Vista SP2 and Windows Server 2008 SP2 (KB3188744)
So what about Windows 7 SP1? We are deploying patches via SCCM in our organization, and the KB3163251 or KB3142033 for Windows 7 are no longer available (expired), but the new KB3188744 cannot be deployed because obviously it shows up as not required
on Windows 7 machines.
So is manually installing the previous patches like KB3163251 and KB3142033 the only way to patch older vulnerabilities now? Or is it simply a bug that .NET Framework security and quality rollup was not released for Windows 7 this month?
Thanks in advance for answers.

We are currently experiencing an issue very similar to this one here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-update/kb3197868-seems-to-break-office-2010-on-32-bit/33ae38aa-52bd-4961-beb3-ddd41a582fb6
After installing the Monthly Security Rollup's our 32bit computers are unable to open applications such as Internet Explorer and Office 2013. Luckily we use a test group for these updates and have not had wide spread issue. That being said, I am unable to
push out the needed security updates as efficiently as I would like considering the issue. 
I cant seem to find too many others who are having a similar issue. I posted a reply on the above mentioned thread and was asked to post here instead. 
Any suggestions on what to do to fix this issue?

Our patch policy states that we only deploy Critical and Security Microsoft updates to endpoints (predominantly Windows 7 devices) that we support.
However we have noticed that the third party that setup our patch deployment through AutoTask have setup Rollups to be deployed as well as Critical and Security Patches to all endpoints.
Aren't Rollup patches a consolidation of all Security patches that are individually released on Patch Tuesday and non critical patches (which we dont have to deploy)?
Need some direction on this so we can decide whether to deploy Rollup patches or remove them from the approved list through Autotask.

I've never posted before; I hope you can help me. But I'm not an advanced user therefore I might need some patient assistance, if possible.

Windows update is not succeeding. Getting error code 80073712 when trying to install the following updates:

However my Microsoft Security Essentials updates still install successfully from the Windows Update panel.

sfc /scannow for many months has been giving the following error: "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them."

Some background information:
1. Sony Vaio laptop (2009)
2. Original operating system was Vista, but after purchase I upgraded to Win 7 Home Professional by using Sony's upgrade disk (2010)
3. Now running Win 7 Home Professional SP 1
4. Three years ago I replaced original HDD with a Crucial M4 SSD (128GB)
5. System Restore has not worked since SSD was installed, so I don't depend on it. Therefore every month or so I clone SSD in case of a major failure.
6. I rely on the computer for my photography and for more than 10 years' worth of Quicken data and for syncing iPhone and iPad with iTunes software
7. I have already hidden some of the Windows Updates that are notorious for causing false SFC errors (e.g., KB3035583 and KB3068708.

Attachment: Windows error code screenshot. But CBS zip file is too large (44MB for folder or 10MB for single text file).

I recently put together my first custom build and I am running into a very frustrating issue with the "Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 for x64-based Systems (KB2937610)".

Error Code: 800B0100

Normally I'm the kind of person that likes to figure things like this out on my own using Google and reading over old posts in forums like this, however I have exhausted my resources as well as my patience..

Here is what I've tried (in no specific order):
Reformat SSD, reinstall Windows 7, installing updates immediately after.
Ran sfc /scannow, it didn't find anything wrong.
Ran MS Fixit, tried installing update with no luck, restarted, tried agian (did this twice)
Ran Windows Update Readiness Tool, tried installing update with no luck, restarted, tried again (twice)
Went to control panel > Programs and Features > Repaired .NET framework 4.5.1, didn't help
Uninstalled .Net Framework 4.5.1 and let windows update reinstall it, didn't help
Used the Microsoft .NET repair tool, didn't help
Used d7 (tech tool, I work at a pc repair shop) to repair Windows Update
Did a clean boot using msconfig method
CHKDSK found no problems
I even manually downloaded the update from MS and ran the installer. It ended with "Some updates were not installed", and listed the update as not installed.
Windows is installed on the Samsung EVO 840 SSD.
(I'm hoping my hardware shows up in my signature or something otherwise I'll... Read more

So here goes my story.

After +- 3 years of use I decided to format and to do a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium through an USB install. All goes well and the first thing I do is updating by using Windows update. All updates succeed and I install all other programs needed for personal use. But along the way my pc kept freezing (especially during big downloads through Steam, watching Flash Player videos in my browser or some trivial other things) so I decided to restart my pc. Blue screen appeared and I started everything over: Format > Clean install > updates.
But now the updates didn't work as before and get stuck around 19-20 of them failing. The error code been given every time is "Code 800706F7" I've done several things recommended on this forum and here are the results:

1. Ran the SURT tool and it installed Hotfix for Windows (KB947821)

2. Ran a SFC scan

3. Used the Fix It tool from MS to no avail

4. Tried some other things I can't remember proposed on other forums but reverted with a system recovery point when they didn't work

A:Failing updates in Windows update (Error: Code 800706F7)

The CheckSUR log is incomplete - and there are no apparent problems in the CBS log or SFC scan.

Please upload the C:\Windows\windowsupdate.log file to a replay, and run the CheckSUR tool again - post the CheckSUR.log and CheckSURPersist.log files.
