Preferred Solution: Windows cumulative updates 1803 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.)



I restore my laptop at an earlier date because I was having some various issues with the Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1803 for x64-based Systems (KB4284835). I just saw yesterday that it was ready for downloading but I'd like to block it until there's another update without issues. I'd like to know how I can do that..

Thanks for your help,

Yesterday evening, I've shut down my computer and it started to install updates but didn't finish the installation. This morning I start my computer and noticed that my computer still had some updates to install so I tried to do it again with the HP support assistant but it stopped again before preparing action list. So I did some research about this update on the web and found some information on this link :


It seems that this update has some serious issues so now I don't know what to do... Does anybody know what is going on with his new update and if I should install it and download it directly from Microsoft website?...

Thanks for your help.

Well October is on the horizon and we are about to have cumulative updates from 'patch Tuesday' forced upon us. (unless you choose otherwise).
I for one am not very happy that MS has chosen to force users to either download all or none as described in this article:
So there will be no choices to download or not if you want security updates for your system.

You will be able to download  Security Only rollups for Windows 7 using the Microsoft Update Catalog.

In less than two days, PC users will be able to manually install the Windows 10 Creators Update with the Update Assistant tool. With such little time to spare, Microsoft has released two new cumulative updates with some last-minute fixes.

For Insiders that are in the Release Preview or Slow rings, you'll find KB4016251, or 15063.13. Naturally, it contains all of the fixes that were included in 15063.11, along with the following:

We fixed an issue where printer connections from clients running older versions of Windows (V3-XPS-based-drivers) failed to connect to clients running the Windows 10 Creators Update.
We fixed an issue where on some devices like the Surface Pro 3, the Windows audio device graph isolation would max out CPU utilization due to being stuck in an endless loop due to defective Realtek APOs.
In the Fast ring, build 15063.14 is available (KB4016252), which includes everything that you see above, along with one more fix:

We fixed an issue where non-suspendable processes would suspend after waking a device.
Of course, if you don't manually install the Creators Update on April 5, the rollout begins on the 11th. At first, it will be available to newer PCs and devices that Microsoft has tested with its OEM partners, and then it will be made available to older devices over the next several months based on feedback.

Microsoft will make substantial changes to the way it delivers updates to Windows 7 and 8.1 computers tomorrow when it starts the rollout of this month?s Patch Tuesday, switching to a new servicing model that?s inspired by Windows 10.

Specifically, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will start getting rollup updates every month, which are supposed to make it easier for users and IT admins to install them on Patch Tuesdays.

Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 computers will get a security-only quality update every month, and this will be published as ?Security Update? with a unique KB number. Additionally, there?ll be a security monthly quality rollup which is more of a monthly rollup containing all security fixes needed to bring a computer fully up to date.

?This will be published to Windows Update (where all consumer PCs will install it), WSUS, and the Windows Update Catalog. The initial monthly rollup released in October will only have new security updates from October, as well as the non-security updates from September,? Microsoft says.

Non-security fixes
And last but not least, there?ll be a third update that will include non-security fixes and which will be rolled on the third Tuesday of the month ? this means that you?ll get it a week after Patch Tuesday.

?An additional monthly rollup containing a preview of new non-security fixes that will be included in the next mo... Read more

New Windows 10 Cumulative Updates Finally Launching Tomorrow

Microsoft rolls out this month?s Patch Tuesday updates tomorrow, and this time, the release is twice more important than in the past because it also includes security fixes that were originally expected in February.

The company delayed the February 2017 Patch Tuesday fixes due to a bug discovered at the very last minute, so this month?s rollout should include twice more fixes for Windows computers.

Additionally, Microsoft is expected to patch vulnerabilities that were made public by Google and which were originally projected to be addressed last month, but which are still there given the Patch Tuesday delay.

And of course, this month?s Patch Tuesday cycle will also include cumulative updates for Windows 10, which are critical for computers running the latest Microsoft operating system, as they include both security patches and other improvements for the OS itself and the built-in apps and features.

There were no cumulative updates released last month either, and this again proves that Windows 10 systems might have a large patch to deploy tomorrow that would address all issues discovered since the last Patch Tuesday in January this year.

IT admins should have in mind that this month?s Patch Tuesday rollout will require system reboots, so saving work before starting deployment will be necessary.

We?ll post more information about the new updates tomorrow when they go live, but expect a large Patch Tu... Read more

Get Ready: New Windows 10 Cumulative Updates to Launch This Week

It?s time for our typical pre-Patch Tuesday notification aimed at Windows 10 users: new cumulative updates will be released tomorrow for all versions of the operating systems, and IT pros should prepare computers in their environments for deployment.

Tomorrow?s cumulative updates are twice more important than any other update, mainly because they will include security fixes addressing vulnerabilities in Windows and the pre-installed apps.

Installing the most recent cumulative update brings a computer fully up-to-date, so if you do install tomorrow?s release, this means your system will include all the patches released by Microsoft for the Windows 10 version you are running.

As with all the other cumulative updates, there are concerns that Microsoft could ship botched patches causing problems on users? computers, but the truth is that the number of issues experienced after installing cumulative updates has dropped substantially after the release of the Creators Update in April.
Nearly flawless install experience
The majority of bugs that users were hitting when installing cumulative updates before the Creators Update launched generated failed installs, with a substantial number of users complaining that the whole process got interrupted before completion, pushing their systems in an infinite loop, with the update being re-offered when logging back in to the desktop.

Fortunately, the experience has ... Read more

Microsoft to Release New Windows 10 Cumulative Updates Tomorrow

Microsoft will kick off this month?s Patch Tuesday rollout tomorrow, and in addition to security updates, the firm will also publish new cumulative updates specifically aimed at Windows 10 systems.

Cumulative updates are particularly important for Windows 10 users because they contain all available fixes, including here both security and non-security patches that are available for a specific version.

Tomorrow?s release will be focused on the security front, however, as Microsoft will patch the last known vulnerabilities in the operating system.

All supported versions of Windows 10 will get cumulative updates, and these include the new Creators Update that got the green light in April this year.

The last few cumulative updates for Windows 10 have worked pretty smoothly, with a smaller number of users reporting issues and complaining of failed installs. Furthermore, the updates that are aimed at the Creators Update also installed correctly, and there?s a good chance that the same will happen with tomorrow?s release as well.

Reboots will be needed
Cumulative updates are recommended to be installed as soon as possible, especially because they include fixes that could prevent attackers from compromising systems.

Living proof is the March cumulative updates that addressed the SMB vulnerability in Windows 10 and which protected users of the operating system against the WannaCry ransomware.

Microsoft Finally Got Windows 10 Cumulative Updates Right This Month

Microsoft has a long history of shipping botched Windows updates, but with Windows 10, the company made everything a lot worse, as many of the cumulative updates it published failed to install or caused several other issues once deployed.

As a result, it?s no surprise that there are plenty of users out there who prefer not to install updates when they are released or to keep auto-updates off until others deploy them to determine if everything is working fine.

But since April when the Creators Update goes live, cumulative updates have provided much smoother performance, with the number of issues experienced by Windows 10 users declining substantially to the point where almost everyone can install them correctly.

This is what happened this month when cumulative updates installed correctly at a rate that exceeds 99 percent, and complaints regarding failed installs or problems caused by these patches pretty hard to find online.

Long install times
In most of the cases, users complaining about issues with this month?s cumulative updates, which are KB4025342, KB4025339, and KB4025344, point to long install times. Indeed, cumulative updates sometimes take too long to install, in some cases up to an hour, but in 99 percent of the cases, the process was completed just fine.

This is actually one of the issues that Microsoft also needs to address with cumulative updates, as the install process still ... Read more

New Windows 10 Cumulative Updates, Security Patches Coming This Week

This month?s Patch Tuesday will kick off tomorrow and in addition to the typical release cycle that includes security patches for Windows, Office and other software, there are also two highlights that everyone should have in mind.

First and foremost, Microsoft will release new cumulative updates for all Windows 10 versions released so far, including the original July 2015 version, November Update, and Anniversary Update.

These cumulative updates will be shipped through Windows Update and will bring computers fully up-to-date, supposing that they are actually capable of installing them ? in the last few months, cumulative updates have caused quite a lot of problems on Windows 10 computers and there were many cases when they simply failed to install for bugs that are still unknown.

The changelog of each cumulative update will be revealed tomorrow, but keep in mind that they require a system reboot, so IT admins should save work on Windows 10 computers before deployment.

Patch for Google-disclosed flaw
In addition to new cumulative updates, Microsoft will also deliver a patch for the security flaw that Google publicly disclosed last week and which is already being exploited in the wild.

Microsoft confirms that it recorded attacks from a group of Russian hackers known as Fancy Bear, but explained that Edge browser users were already secure thanks to patches that were shipped to Windows 10 systems. Ev... Read more

Microsoft will kick off the Patch Tuesday rollout in a few hours, and Windows 10 systems are expected to get its own batch of fixes, including brand new cumulative updates for the original version released in July 2015 (10240), November Update (1511), and Anniversary Update (1607).

Just like usual, cumulative updates are particularly important for Windows 10 users because they bring computers completely up-to-date once they are installed, but it?s no secret either that plenty of them actually came with bugs and caused trouble on PCs.

Microsoft is yet to deliver a cumulative update that installs fine on all Windows 10 computers, but given the fact that new ones are expected today, we?ll keep an eye out on reports and will let you know should anything go wrong.

This month?s Patch Tuesday also brings an important change for Windows 7 and 8.1 systems, as Microsoft switches to a rollup servicing cycle that?s similar to the cumulative updates shipped to Windows 10 computers.

Challenging month for companies
Chris Goettl, product manager at Shavlik, expects this Patch Tuesday to be particularly challenging for many companies, as it could raise additional problems, some of which would involve application compatibility.

I am noticing a interesting trend with machines in my environment. I am using SCCM 2012 R2 to push updates to my desktops. All of my desktops are Win 7 Enterprise x64. Since the inception of the Update Rollups in October half of my desktops cannot
install these updates.

The updates install but when the machine reboots it starts reverting changes and reboots several times and the updates fail to install. I have attempted to remedy this by running the WURT and SURT tools, sfcscannow, stopping wuauclt and renaming the softwaredistrobution
folder.  I also tried to download the patch locally and install. None of these have worked.

I have spent over 20 hours trying to figure out the problem and I am in need of help. This is my first post so please be kind. I can attach my CBS logs and WindowsUpdate logs if needed. I can't figure out how to that in this OP.

Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Cumulative Updates KB4048955, KB4048954, KB4048953

Microsoft has released a new batch of cumulative updates for Windows 10 as part of the monthly Patch Tuesday rollout supposed to fix security issues in products like Windows and Office.

This time, the cumulative updates for Windows 10 are the following: KB4048955 (1709), KB4048954 (1703), KB4048953 (1607), KB4048952 (1511), and KB4048956 (RTM).

Since they land on Patch Tuesday, the focus is mostly on security bugs, but these cumulative updates also include a large collection of performance improvements and non-security issue resolutions, all of which should be installed on Windows 10 devices as soon as possible.

In the past, we?ve seen lots of cumulative updates causing issues on the Windows 10 systems they were supposed to be installed to, and it remains to be seen if similar bugs are experienced this month as well. Our Windows 10 devices updated correctly and no failed installs occurred.

Truth be told, Microsoft has managed to substantially reduce the percentage of failed installs since the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update and the Fall Creators Update likely brings more improvements in this regard.

First Patch Tuesday for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709)

Hello All!

I'm new to the Insider Program and am currently running build 10565 on one laptop and 10240 RTM on another. Quick question about getting updates on Insider builds - do I get cumulative & security updates that are available for the RTM version on my insider build? Just did some updates to my RTM but noticed that some of the newest updates like KB3097617 don't show on my 10565 build.

I manually downloaded the latest updates from Microsoft Catalog but when I tried to install them it said they are not applicable. Is it because insider builds already come with these security updates built in?

Some of those updates are already included in the 10565 build so they are not offered.

The short of it is, my computer wants to update, it tells me every hour to restart as it has pending updates. However, during restart, it gets to 100% configuring updates, restarts, says it may restart several times, restarts again and says something along the lines of "returning to your previous configuration"

My test computer (specs follow) is stuck at build 10586.11 I cannot install any cumulative upgrade, they all fail and Windows Update undoes any change to the system. In order to be able to install any other update I have to use the show/hide tool to hide the cumulative updates. I don't know what's wrong. My main computer (see my specs) and several of my friends have no problem upgrading up to 10586.36, but this particular one fails for some reason.

Hi spapakons,

Please remove every crack/bypass on your system in order to proceed.
There are 2 main reasons,

Troubleshooting a system with counterfeit programs is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit program contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

Forum rules

4) No piracy or discussion of piracy allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations (e.g. downloading youtube videos locally etc).

Like many folks using the Windows 10 Anniversary issue I am running into Windows Update problems. Up to around the 2nd week of September I was having no update issues whatsoever. Then along came (1) KB3189866 and it failed; then (2) KB3193494 a few days later and it failed; and the last one (3) KB3194496 failed too!

I am running Windows 10 Home, Version 1607, Build 14393.105 on an HP All-In-One HP Pavilion 23-g017c (x64) AMD A6-5200 APU w/Radeon HD Graphics, using the Edge Browser while utilizing Windows Firewall and Windows Defender as my major security programs.

It seems the only updates which fail during this period are the three listed above -- all Cumulative Updates for Win10, Version 1607 for x64-based systems.

I have run the Windows update tool several times and it finds things needing to be fixed. It says it has fixed them but updates still fail. I have tried the Windows Catalog and tried to manually install the first two but both of these manual attempts failed too. I tried finding the 3rd Cum Update in the Catalog and it said it couldn't be found. I have seriously thought about trying a computer Reset but after reading up on this I get sweaty palms ...lol

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas about why all three of these updates have failed.

The following information was excerpted from several sources, cited at the end of the post:
From October 2016 onwards, Microsoft will release a single CUMULATIVE Monthly Rollup Update for (each version of) Windows, that addresses both security issues and reliability issues... each update will supersede [and include] the previous month’s release, [so] you'll only need to install the latest single rollup to be up to date. Indeed, Microsoft says that over time, they will gradually add-on prior patches too, so that these monthly updates will eventually become fully cumulative; but it may take a year or more for the process of previous-patch-inclusion to be completed.
What this means is that individual patches will no longer be available --- to patch your system, you must accept ALL the releases for the month in a single patch... This change is rather significant... and considering that Microsoft has released a few bad patches in the past couple of years that have broken fundamental features of Windows, this change may not sit well with IT Pros [nor consumers].
Hardware drivers are the one potential exception; see How to stop Windows 7 automatically installing drivers https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2500967
Likewise, the .NET Framework will also follow the Monthly Rollup model [which will] deliver both security and reliability updates to all versions of the .NET Framework as a single monthly release. It is important to note that the rollup for the .... Read more

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.

This update seems to have been cancer. Yesterday my computer informed me it needed to restart for updates. So I did just that. Afterwards I couldn't easily get online, and when I do it gets throttled.
This is what speedtest says, but it's not at all accurate. It took a few minutes for it to complete. Even if it was accurate, the dl speed is about 30Mbps slower than it should be.

However... This is AFTER uninstalling KB3201845 and several restarts. Before that it took me 40ish minutes of to google the most recent update on my computer just to find out people were losing their wifi and such.

In an attempt to fix the issue I have followed most of the instructions HERE except for options that require uninstalling the drivers (last time I tried deleting network drivers I was without internet for hours trying to get it working again). Afterwards I uninstalled KB3201845, as I mentioned before. Still, websites take forever to load if they load. Any ideas what I should be doing?

Hi there, trying to perform updates on my niece's laptop....she has not done them in awhile.....

Installed lots of updates but these 2 are giving me a hard time..and they are both marked as "important"

Security Upgrade for Vista KB77165
Service Pak 2 For Vista KB9865

It keeps telling me that I have to update these 2....
I have done them several times...
although when doing the service pak a window comes up and advises that this may take an hour or more and that the computer may shut down a few times.....but it doesn't...it just shows me that its done afte a few seconds.
but it keeps prompting me to update these 2 same ones!!

I checked update history and it is showing these 2 several times today and each time listed as successful...

Why does it keep prompting me to update??? Can't get rid of it!!

My niece is coming to get her laptop in an hour....can someone respond soon please?

Thanks for any help....

In addition to being a student, I work for my university's IT department. This semester, we've been trying something new. Before a student can surf the Internet with his or her own personal computer, they must first comply with the university's required Windows updates and virus scanner. This is accomplished by requiring the student to use Cisco Clear Access.

I've recently encountered a problem with one of the student's laptops and its ability to perform a Windows XP update. When I go to the Windows Update homepage and after I scan the computer, Microsoft attempts to authenticate the OS. Unfortunatley, it won't allow me past this stage. At first, I thought that maybe a pirated version of XP was installed on the computer, so I asked the student about it. She called her father, who was the one who purchased the computer, and he said that the software came with the computer. So I assume it's OEM software. It should authenticate then. As far as I can tell, the software is activated.

Does anyone have any idea why I'm encountering this problem and what I could do to remedy it?

Hi guys,
I've noticed that since two days ago the Windows Updates page for Windows 7 machines is painfully slow. It's happening only with brand-new machines that have never been updated. I did two installations from scratch with legit serial keys, but the Updates
page just keeps "Checking for Updates" and never brings up anything. I left the workstation for over two hours on that page and nothing.
Is anyone else experiencing the same problem?

Hi guys n gals - Merry Xmas to all .

Im having a problem with Windows updates my pc. Im not sure if its some sort of virus , or just a Windows issue.

I keep getting the yellow icon, saying 'updates are ready for your computer'. When I click it goes through the 4 update steps, and says 'updates succesfully applied'.
However, the icon keeps coming straight back, even after cold boot.
When I go through the control panel / add & remove, the last updates are still showing as over a week ago. However, if I go into the site for Windows update , it shows the update for today as 'succesfull'.
I ran a manual update via the Microsoft website and this worked sucesfully. (i.e it updated the add/remove programs page).

My pc keeps randomly going to 100% cpu usage , and its usually svchost or msiexec which is causing it. When applying the updates my pc shows as running out of disk space, even though I have deleted file over a gig a byte recently.

I have ran virus checks using avast , spybot and adaware. Couple were found, but the issue persists.
I am on Windows XP 2002 SP3 . Add/remove progs shows latest update as KB2467659.
Thanks in advance for any help

Your computer seems to be stuck in an installing loop if this is causing 100% usage while you are not installing anything -Download, update and run Malwarebytes to be sure there is no other infection causing this -

Installed the WIndow 1803 update and it doest see my 2nd monitor.  The bad part about this is that I did a clean install and it automagically goes out to MS and installs 1803 without my consent. I want the previous version on my computer, but I cant seem to prevent them from updating during the process. I installed the newest drivers manually and it didnt help.This is really frustrating and MS was not any help. HELP !!!

I've been trying for weeks to upgrade to Windows 10 1803, it always rolls back at about 32% Today I tried a clean install of 1803 from a USB stick. It installed just fine, but then it started installing drivers for unknown devices and after installing the Intel HD driver for the video card the system became unstable with a PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA bluescreen crashing the machine after booting up. It would appear the problem may be with the Intel HD Graphics driver which hasn't been updated in some time. Anyone managed to get 1803 running successfully on B50-30? Thanks

This latest update of windows 1o 1803 has taken away my home network and home group. I have everything set according to to the settings in Network and Sharing, and the same is true for my laptops. When I look in the file explorer it doesn't even offer the home group, nor does it even show a network.
Like I said, this all happened after the 1803 update.
