A few problems after SURT (tried to install SP2)

Q: A few problems after SURT (tried to install SP2)

Hi,

I have tried to install SP2 on my Vista Home Premium 32 bit (Dutch). After evenings trying to fix some problems with FixIt and Readiness it's going better and better. But SP2 won't install yet. In my checksur.log there are a few problems, after more than 900 were repaired. Can someone help me to fix these problems so I can try to install SPV again?

Preferred Solution: A few problems after SURT (tried to install SP2)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello BasW and welcome to the forums

Yay, I've finally got a nice SURT log to play with Because you only have manifest files corrupted (not their matching .mum and .cat files), we can't trace them through an update. We're going to have to manually trace them through the registry. Please bear with me whilst I prepare instructions!

Dear Sevenforums,

I just installed a new HDD by WD into a HP DV7T (2008), everything has been going well up until I tried to Update Windows. I did not retain anything from the previous installation as the previous hard drive up and quit on me!

I activated windows and had it confirmed as genuine.

I followed the instructions posted on another page and tried to install SURT and got an error: 0xc8000247.

I was hoping for some suggestions, Direct X , Java, MSE and Mechwarrior Online wouldn't install.

Perhaps a driver issue?

Have a great day all!

Sincerely,
Noodle123

A:New HDD, Windows will not update, cannot install SURT error code below

This error is due to problems with the hard drive drivers.
First, open Device Manager, and click on View > Show hidden devices

Are any devices showing with yellow triangles or red crosses?
If so, Uninstall them, then reboot and see if that cures the problem.

if not...

This may simply be caused by a bad set of Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers -

try downloading and installing them from here - https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=2101&DwnldID=22194

Hello, I recently replaced a defective HDD in my laptop with a new WD Black 750G HDD, re-installed my Windows 7 image using my recovery DVDs, but can't seem to update Windows OR start Windows Defender (error 0x8e5e0247). I followed the steps from "Windows Update Posting Instructions" and am listing the results:-

1. System Update Readiness Tool installation resulted in error:0xc8000247.

2. Also performed SFC Scan three separate times and received the same "WRP found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them." (see attached CBS)

When I manually try to install updates, I get "Windows Update cannot check for updates because the service is not running. Restart your computer." But if look in local services (Task Manager) Windows Update is started & running.

Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.
PS: There were some programs included in the restore, Norton AV being one of them. I uninstalled it, then downloaded the Norton Removal Tool & ran that as well. I'm mentioning this because it was recommended several times in other threads regarding this same error.

I am going to ask a quick question while SURT is running on my laptop. I am very vulnerable on that pc as the updates have not updated since reinstall of win7 sp1 yesterday. Can I turn off my internet connection while that program is running? Thank you.

A:Running SURT for update problems-Compaq C62 laptop

Since no one has offered any advice, I just kept truckin'. I downloaded and I ran the SURT package. I have been at all of this since 11 this morning and succeeded in downloading 148 windows security updates. I was told after reinstalling sp1 there would be around 200 but the windows update menu indicated that 68 were "recommended" not important. That would bring the number to 196. I think I will just not worry about those 68 as they are not "important". Hope I am back in safe territory.

Because my satellite internet will take ages (like 80 hours or something) to download SURT, would I be able to download it onto a USB (via WIFI from my town's library, onto my laptop) and then install/run it on my home desktop computer?

Please forgive if this is a stupid question

A:can I run SURT from a USB stick?

You can - but I'd advise copying it to the desktop and running that copy, unless it's USB3, as it's a very large file.

The pc is definitely backleveled since I had to restore. It has all updates up to 7/12. While I have had any problems with updates (so far) I thought that it might be wise to install the SURT. My only concern is whether that would create problems with updates since I am so far behind.

thanks

(I could not find an answer for this question which may well be a dumb question.)

A:SURT WIN7 64bit

It only corrects any problems it finds - it doesn't install anything new.

I'm trying to follow the posting guidelines before I post my Windows update problem but don't know which SURT file to download, could someone please help?

My computer properties are :

Windows 7 Home Premium
Copyright 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
64-bit Operating System

(I have not been able to succesfully download/install Service Pack 1, which is the problem I will eventually ask about, and every option I see for SURT has an SP, which I don't have at all.)

ETA - Sorry guys, just saw I wasn't reading things properly.

A:which SURT file should I download?

For the SURT you need to d/l this file: x64-based (64-bit) versions of Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 7

For the last two months I have been having to reinstall the same win updates over & over?-
Now its the Windows Malicious Software Removal tool that keeps coming up, and as soon as I install it
the updt icon immediately pops up saying updates are ready for your computer (over & over)?

I tried to download the Win7 32-bit SURT tool from your forum link, but it says it's Not available?

A:Can't download SURT tool to fix...?

The most likely reason for the MSRT to repeat is that it crashed at some point.
The most likely reason for that, is that the machine is infected.
Try this link for the CheckSUR tool...

Download System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 (KB947821) [October 2014] from Official Microsoft Download Center

(direct link - 32-bit Windows 7CheckSUR)

Also...

Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM Premium' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

Hello.

I can't check for Windows 7 Updates. I get an error saying that the service isn't running, even when it is (I checked services.msc). I tried running SURT, but I get an error 0xc8000247. I tried sfc /scannow, didn't work. CBS logs are attached. Thanks.

You're probably also getting a 'non-genuine' error??

taking the two issues people have come back to me with

SURT

The SURT has not fixed the problem; the same 4 updates fail as before i.e. :
- Definition Update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB982726) 32-Bit Edition,
- Security Update for Microsoft Outlook 2010 (KB2837597) 32-Bit Edition
- Update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB2589352) 32-Bit Edition
- Update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB2597087) 32-Bit Edition

Log files don't mean a lot to me. But here goes for anyone who can interpret. Attached are the simple log files in plain and CBS zips after the SURT run - before and after failed software update

IE11 and YouTube: Someone asked for a better description of the problem. Best done with an example: If I open YouTube and attempt to type a search string e.g. Joe Bloggs, it locks up with a YouTube failing to respond pop-up at the bottom. On the other hand, if I type a search string into Google e.g. Joe Bloggs on YouTube, then I can click any of the links and YouTube runs perfectly, and more to the point, will accept any new search string.

In the mean time, I'll go look for updates after next Patch Tues/Wed so I can shut my machines down sensibly

A:Wrap up to the SURT suggestion (and IE11)

SURT found nothing wrong - and the CBS logs contain no useful data.

good evening, I have tried following your instructions to post information regarding the error, but surt fails to execute the hotfix.
For the past month, I kept getting disconnected from my wifi, it would stop working, and could not run the troubleshooter either.
I ran windows updater, it did update some files, but failed with 3 having to do with microsoft net framework.
I play FSX and P3D, today I tried upgrading my P3D to a new version and it failed as well, never happened before.
since I could not run surt, can you please guide me thru what steps I can take, this is driving me crazy and those games are what keeps my brain distracted from thinking about a bladder tumor.
I am enclosing the error logs as well.
Thanks.

Looking down this list of current update failures,

one might be excused for thinking Microsoft has a serious problem which started a couple of days back.

I have spent the last two days trying to re- install failed up dates.

About twelve in all and only relative to two error codes (800F08260) for most of them, then an odd

two with (80070490). First I tried finding a restore point prior to everything going wrong. Windows was

less than appreciative of that and the restore failed. I tried updating single updates manually but no go,

they still failed. Two days back I put in new antivirus and firewall and I wondered if that was the problem,

so I disabled and went back to Defender and Windows firewall. Nope, that made no difference.

So I logged on here, took note of "Windows update posting instructions"

and worked my way down to the SURT program. I attempted to install the version for Win 7 64 bit

and initially it looked good and was installing (9KB947821) (which I was surprised to see was a Hot Fix? )

when it hung. I left it for a while but it just was stuck there, so I killed it with task manager and

downloaded a new version then installed it. It also reached the same point then hung.

If I go look at the update history it shows a failure for (KB947821) but then a success!

I suppose I should think myself lucky but, what I would like to know is, If I instigate Windows Updates

now. will they all work? In other words, was that hot fix the thing needed to... Read more

I understand that this SURT is supposed to resolve the eternal "searching for updates" so I would be extremely please if someone could tell me where this marvel can be found
Thanks a lot for your time

A:where can I find SURT tool to kick w7 updates

I don't know about SURT but the following will resolve the Windows update problem.

Follow these instructions exactly.
First, set Windows Updates to never check for Updates.
Next reboot your computer, then install KB3020369, if not installed.
Then install KB3172605.

Windows updates should return to normal. You can then reset your updates to automatically check for updates if desired

I'm having a weird problem for the past few days. On my laptop, I can surf to most websites, but can't sign into hotmail and yahoo mail ... I get a 'Page cannot be displayed' error after I enter my username and password.

However, I have a desktop as well ... and at the same time that my laptop browser gives an error, I can logon to the same websites from my desktop without an issue.

I've also have experienced a similar problem logging onto eBay, mapquest etc … and I had the same problem right now while posting this message! My laptop gave a ‘page cannot be displayed’ error when I clicked on ‘preview post’ … so I had to post this from my desktop.

This problem has been haunting me for several days on just these few websites, so its not a case of a server being temporarily down.

The laptop has WinXP, and the browser is IE ver
6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.030422-1633
The desktop has Win98, and the broswer is IE ver 6.0.2800.1106

I had uninstalled JRE from my laptop earlier this week; and I wondered whether that was causing this problem. But the problem persists even after I reinstalled 'Java 2 Runtime Environment Standard Edition v1.3.1_02'.

Please help!

Hi all-

This is my first post so hopefully I'm doing it correctly.

I've been having issues with my Windows update service not checking for updates since it says the service isn't running. I have tried various other fixes that I've seen in other threads such as running Malwarebyte and FSS. When running those tools, no issues were found.

I downloaded SURT, and while the installation will initialize, it stops and gives me a 0xc8000247 error.

I ran sfc /scannow and have attached the log file below.

I have also enclosed the CBS logs as requested.

I am running Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) and have SP1 installed. Please advise if there is any additional information that you need. If it matters, the computer in question is an HP Pavilion DV8.

Thank you,

About 3 or 4 days ago I installed a new motherboard (Gigabyte MA785GMT-UD2H), processor (Athlon X2), RAM (4GB Crucial), HDD (so it's essentially a new PC). After installing XP Home and then gradually installing updates (SP3 is installed) and my usual assortment of programmes and utilities (nothing too out of the ordinary - iTunes, browsers, Office, spyware utilities, Security Essentials), my PC now has a number of glitchy problems whenever I boot it up at the beginning of the day. I can get past them by rebooting roughly 4-5 times; eventually it will run smoothly. I've kept notes of some of the most recurrent problems:

- Generic Win32 service closes on start-up. Result is frequently that when I try to open My Documents or My Computer, the taskbar and desktop icons disappear for a few seconds, then reappear. Often after a few attempts my desired folder will eventually open.

- AntiMalware Service Executable closes on start-up. Result is Security Essentials deciding it cannot update and thinks it's out of date.

- ATI Catalyst Control Centre (for the onboard GPU) closes on start-up. No noticeable effects.

- Google Chrome (my preferred browser) browser windows crash - i.e. I get the 'aw snap!' page, the whole thing doesn't close. This occurs even after disabling extensions, so they do not seem to be the cause.

...And less frequently, I have also had the following happen:

- On boot-up, a window pops up with: 'Procedure entry point Md5final could not be located in ... Read more

I found a solution for my problem. Thought I should post about it - can come handy for some of you nice guys:

I thought i should try creating a new windows account with administrative rights. Done so. Rebooted and chose that recently created account. Windows spent a lot of time working as if it was installing a lot of components. about 10 minutes or so. What it did i dont know, but whatever it was it was very well done. Reinstalled the drivers that would not work and for my surprise everything went as smooth as my sons little but. Even when I log with my old account everything is swell.

Morals of the story - when your drivers fail to install, try to create a new user with administrative rights, then install your driver under that account. It worked for me

Curse client, Breaking point, WS Installer, and random files from google chrome I cant download. The downloads from google chrome I can fix by either using a proxy or using firefox. The programs I try to install things from I seem to cant get a good fix for though. They will start up with my normal 6mbs speed but then drop to 70kbs or stop in all. I have tried to find this problem multiple times when it first happened and even wiped my computer with no luck and it is starting to annoy me. If I do not turn off smart firewall/antivirus auto protect on Norton and run in admin mode it almost never works at all as in it will not start with a down-speed and it will just sit.

Degraded DL performance (ie starting a XX Mbps and degrading to 70Kbps) is not a firewall issue (they give 100% access or none at all). Your A/V program, browser add-ons, your ISP and finally the site being accessed for the DL are all players in performance.

My Compaq Presario laptop locked up on me, and after shutting down, it wouldn't start up again. Kept cycling thru the boot up cycle. The short story of it is that the ntfs.sys file was corrupted, along with the ql2300.sys file (which was keeping me from accessing the recovery console.)

Anyway, after ordering the recovery discs from HP (I had neglected to make my own upon purchasing the computer), and downloading Killdisk to wipe the drive(the recovery disks wouldn't even start up without wiping the drive completely) I attempted to reinstall XP, but it kept giving me "cannot copy file" messages on literally dozens of files. In some of the messages, it said something about the setup file not being a valid xp copy.

I didn't wipe the recovery partition, could that be causing the error? and is it ok to do it? I'm not worried about losing any info. There was nothing on there I cared to keep that I can't reinstall later.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Note: The recovery discs are supposedly specific to my computer's serial #

If you have recovery CDs/disks...what purpose could a recovery partition serve?

I've never had a system with either...recovery CDs or recovery partition...but I think one would do and the other would be superfluous.

I'd rather have the CDs/disks.

My experience with ntfs problems...is to obliterate that whole partition and start with a clean hard drive...format with the XP CD/create the partition...and install.

The existing HDD on the HP failed so I reformatted a Hitachi HDD that was previously an external back-up drive. I reformatted the drive and installed it into the HP machine, then tried installing Win 7. I went through the usual windows set-up screens, ?language? ?keyboard? ?new install or repair? etc.

Then I get a message to look for the destination drive. Here is the problem, it won?t find the drive and asks me install a driver first. I checked the Hitachi drivers on another PC and it says the drivers are all installed. Am I making some kind of fundamental mistake here ? or is my new (old backup) drive also failed ?

What would happen if I put a brand new drive into the HP, would it also ask for the drivers an fails to recognise the HDD ?

Firstly I would like to say I am new here so thank you to anyone who can help - oh and Hi!

Secondly a bit of background (sorry for the length) - I am a Brit living here in the US. My HP laptop was bought in the UK (in 2006) and came installed with XP and MS Works but NOT MS Office.

I bought MS Office 2003 from Amazon UK and installed it with out any problems.

When I moved to the US in 2009 I set my PC to play UK (region 2) DVDs.(After travelling back and forth between the US and UK I have used all my setting ups and now cant change which is OK)

I have been running AVG free as anti-virus but decided to get Norton AV 2011 from Amazon US, but found I couldnt install it. It didnt show up in the My Computer screen drive with the discs name though I can see a drive icon.

All that happened is a small CD icon would spin by the side of the pointer as the CD spins up in the drive then sounds as if it gets stuck in a loop with repetative clicking and whirring noises etc.

I tried various DVDs and CDs and noticed that the UK bought DVDs work fine, the US bought DVDs dont work - as expected, but neither US or UK bought software (CD) installs. The software trys to install on another PC though.

I called HP and spoke to the HP US help desk who talked me through -

Updating and reinstalling DVD/CD drivers.
Flashing the BIOS.
Cleaning the DVD lens.
Deleting upper and lower registry settings (??)
Various updates.

They then told me to call HP UK as they dont do UK computers...... Read more

Here's where the problem begins . When I put the XP disk in and booted up it started laoding the setup files like usual , then it stopped and said it could not copy a file . After several attempts , I skip the file and it continued to load . Then it just keeps on hitting files it says it can not copy until it blue screens .

I thought maybe my disk was bad so I got a brand new , unopened XP disk and the same thing . I got a Win 2K disk and same thing . I got a Win98SE disk it it loaded it fine . I tried to upgrade to Win XP from 98SE and when it started copying , same thing .

I thought maybe the CDRom was just not reading properly , so I changed that out . Same results .

I want to upgrade to a new, faster, CD rom drive. My current cd rom drive is set with jumpers to slave. This cd rom works fine. I thought I could just pop the old one out, plug in everything the same on my new one, and it would work just fine. It didn't. First, I removed my old cd rom and plugged in my new one but had the jumper set to master as per the instructions in the owners manual. Well the first thing I got was a blue screen. I shut off computer, Window 98SE started to boot, and it couldn't detect my hard drive so it aborted the boot up. I then set the jumpers to slave (like my old one) and Windows would not detect the CD rom drive. It wasn't listed in device manager, nor in my computer. Even though it wasn't detected, I could open and close the tray so I know it's getting power. I did not use the jumper setting for CS but maybe that's a possability. I did re-install my old cd rom drive and it still works just fine. Is it possible this new cd rom drive is defective? Should I return it for a new one and try again? Is there something else I can try to get this new one to work? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try putting only one stick of those 512MB ram that you have. See if that would work. If it would put the others in afterwards.

I have been trying to do a clean install of windows 7 with no success. I get through what appears to be a clean install on a formatted disk and windows7 comes back with an error message about an unexpected reboot and that I basically need to start over. I have tried 32b and 64b versions. This is a new system build and I have also replaced the mother board, all with no success. It seems to fail when trying to install services (as defined by MS within windows 7). Any ideas?

thanks

Welcome to SF!

Where did you get your copy of Windows 7?

Hi, new and hope you can help

Just purchased a crucial 256gb ssd V4, realised the boot up has to be ahci rather than IDE for full speed.

Cloned the ssd, ut didnt boot due to AHCI. ok, so install win 7 as fresh on ssd, and tried loading software, its painfully slow.
So am i best off reloading win7 on ssd, then using my current hdd with all my apps, itunes etc as normal. do i have to configure anything or is it plug and play, or what am i doing wrong. The bios needs updating, but from manufacturer website it says for new cpu support.
Ideally i was going to put all on ssd, thinking it would help, but after reading a few threads its best to keep old hdd.
Hope that makes sense, im rushing as off out now
Any replies would be gratefully received

A:ssd install problems

this is what i have done so far.
1 cloned(full contents) the ssd using the provided software off crucial, works but not a faster than normal boot up. Because the ssd is running at IDE mode, should be AHCI.
2 Reloaded windows onto the ssd under AHCI. Whilst updating the windows update, its very slow. Though i was also loading other software.
3 I have acronis true image tried loading the app files only to ssd but that failed.
4 What i want to do now is reload the SSD with win 7, then shut down the pc and reinstall the HDD into another SATA port, or will ineed to configure. This im hoping will let me use my pc as im use to. Is that right??
Ive spent 2 days trying to get this right so getting fed up big time. Any input welcome
Apologies for the rushing of the post
