Having Trouble With Getting June 2016 Windows 7 Updates

Q: Having Trouble With Getting June 2016 Windows 7 Updates

Has anyone been able to get the June 2016 updates for Windows 7 by the normal "Checking for updates" method?

I haven't have any trouble obtaining the June 2016 updates for Windows XP and Windows 10, but Windows 7 is a different story.

I heard that Microsoft was going to change the way that Windows 7 users start receiving monthly updates, and apparently it has.

Preferred Solution: Having Trouble With Getting June 2016 Windows 7 Updates

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 love my T520.  i love my X220.  this week Windows 10 no longer functions right on either of them!  The Conexant drivers were uninstalled and Windows generic audiopoint driver put in its place.  Windows 10 updates drivers with no notification.  And the only way I knew this had happened, was all my audio went sour -- tinny high pitches and echoing ...so I check the drivers.  Knew i had installed the Conexant drivers when setting up the systems. But instead of Conexant drivers, there is a Microsoft installation, with a warning when you try to get driver details of "no device drivers are necessary for this device." I'm operating on the assumption that this HAS to be happening to other users -- have you noticed your sound going bad in Windows 10 recently?  Is on both my Thinkpads that have Conexant sound boards.MS won't allow the reinstall of the Conexant drivers.  All audio enhancements are turned off.  In fact, i have to turn the enhancements on again and play with the equalizer to try and get more bass and less screaching.  It still sounds awful.Conexant boards are also in the newer T series and E series.... so surely this is being noted in others that upgraded to Windows 10? The Windows 10 Conexant driver available from Lenovo website no longer works or installs at all.  HELP HELP HELP HELP ....i have tried everything.  even used linux to go in and remove ms audioendpoint applications.  i ca...

If you're using Windows XP Professional SP3 32-bit and have it configured with the POSReady registry tweak so it can continue to receive security updates through April 2019, a total of 4 security updates for June 2018 are available at the Microsoft Update Catalog site.



Download and save all 4 security updates, then install them in order by KB number.

Do NOT restart your computer until all 4 security updates have been installed.

Hi everyone, I'm new here, looking forward to speaking with you all. Hopefully I'm posting in the right area!

I help my mom with most of her computer issues, and I'm usually able to troubleshoot most of them without much difficulty, but today I've encountered a real whopper that I just can't figure out

So here's what's going on:

This morning, she ran windows updates (from what I can tell this is the latest Tuesday patch from June 11). Everything downloaded fine, but the installation phase froze -- so she did a hard reset on the computer, which is an HP laptop.

Everything boots and Windows loads fine, but once she gets to her desktop, everything is very slow and she can't load any programs (clicking icons does nothing). This seems to include explorer, since accessing my computer / documents etc. doesn't want to load either.

I had her go into safe mode and do a restore point (for 6/8/2013), but the problem seems to persist. I've also run chkdsk and scf /scannow, both finding no problems.

Additionally, in the windows update repair tool (er, I think I'm messing up that name, hopefully you know what I mean) it states that it's found issues with windows update, but after running the program, it says:

"Repair Windows Update Components - Not Fixed"

And no amount of pleading seems to be able to make it fix it. Or do much of anything for that matter.

I've tried to be as detailed as possible, but please let me know if you need additional information.

Hello,
Luca here. Basically I have been encountering 4 BSODs with different codes after I installed some Windows 7 updates on June the 15th. I ran various tests (Prime 95, Memtest, a native window ram test and an HP System check upon booting) all of the were negative (no errors encountered). One of the BSODs popped up while I was running an instance of Memtest, unfortunately I did not track down the STOP code. They seem to pop up at random times, while I'm doing very different activities. THe first one came up while I was watching a youtube video, the others I have encountered while leaving the PC on but not using it. Also yesterday the PC seemed to not be able to pass POST, so I wasn't able to turn it on for a good 3 hours, then It started working again. Throwing this in there, maybe it will give you guys some insight on what my problem may be.
I'm attaching a RAR of the 4 crash dumps.
Thanks in advance to whoever will take the time to reach out and help

My system specs are:

Model : HP m9292.it
CPU : Intel Core2 Quad Q9300 2.50 GHz
RAM : 8 GB DDR2 400 MHz Corsair RAM
Motherboard: Pegatron Benicia Motherboard
GPU : AMD Radeon HD 7700 Sapphire 1 GB
Drives : 2 Seagate ST3750640AS 750 GB

A:BSOD after Windows 7 updates June 15th

I would first try seeing if you can re run memtest again and try and note the stop error code; cause it sounds like you MAY have one or more bad sticks of ram due to the fact that its popping a bsod on ya while trying to run memtest.

Several people are posting about having various problems after running the latest Windows Updates. Those who have tried to do a system restore to a date before the updates are encountering further problems where the crypt32.dll file has gone missing thereby rendering the machine unbootable.

This is just emerging and I'm sure Microsoft will issue a fix rapidly but until then it might be a good idea to turn off automatic updates temporarily so they are not downloaded and if you've already installed them and are having problems do NOT do a system restore but hang tight until further notice.
 

A:Apparent problem with Windows 7 updates - June 13/14, 2012

I know nothing about the problem(s) and had no trouble updating three systems plus two VirtualBox guest systems. A frequent cause of Windows update problems is a security suite or other firewall, anti-virus or anti-spyware. So, if you do go ahead and update before getting some definitive word on this disable your non-Microsoft security applications during the update process. And remember to re-enable it/them after the required reboot.

What is the verdict on MSKB3161608 - June 2016 update rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1?

I see that MSKB3161608 includes quite a few patches, including MSKB3161647 - Windows Update Client for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: June 2016. In the past, I think some people mentioned MS possibly slipping in some Win10 crap with patches to the Windows Update Client.

For Windows 7 SP1 systems that will not be "upgraded" to Windows 10, does MSKB3161608 (or MSKB3161647) include any nasties, Win10 garbage, or MS-suprises?

For Windows 7 SP1 systems that will not be "upgraded" to Windows 10, is MSKB3161608 a recommended install?

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

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

Another Windows 10 update causes trouble, this time with Word 2016

By Darren Allan,

It's a minor issue, but an annoying one for some

Microsoft hasn't had much luck when it comes to tweaking its various bits of software of late, and the Redmond truck has suffered another update fender-bender, this time affecting Microsoft Word 2016 users running Windows 10.

The problem has been caused by a Windows 10 update unleashed late last week, namely Cumulative Update KB3124200, which Microsoft noted made some tweaks and offered "improved functionality" for the OS (yes, a typically vague patch description).

Except it didn't improve Microsoft Word's functionality, and as The Register reports, it caused Word's Normal.dotm template to be renamed, then recreated and reset to its default settings (losing the user any customisation and macros saved in the template).

Not normal

As 'Rob L', Group Engineering Microsoft Word, posted on the Answers.microsoft.com thread regarding this issue, what's happening is that the existing Normal.dotm is being renamed to Normal.dotm.old during startup.

So the good news is that this is simple to cure, as all the settings are still saved in this file, which is easy enough to recover from the Templates directory. If you're affected by this problem, check out the full instructions on the link posted below

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

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

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

The problem seemed to have started when I downloaded and installed the new Windows 10 security updates. Nothing really triggers the BSOD, and it normally happens about 5 minutes from booting Windows to the Desktop. I just uninstalled the updates and so far so good. I wan to make sure that it was the updates and not something else (Driver, 3rd party program). I actually BSOD'd while trying to submit this ticket. Thank you for your help.

Dimension 9200 / XPS 410  DXP061 with Core 2 Duo E6300 can go all the way to windows 10 pro.  Yes the XPS 410 will accept and fully use all 8 GB of RAM when running a 64 bit O/S. I currently have 8GB.
So if you upgrade to a modest Radeon HD 6450 from asus. You are good to go.

Works in all models Except USFF because USFF has no video slot.

Home version of windows 7 8 10 is $109
Pro version is $199
Oem versions Slightly less.
Keep in mind that you can get an older OptiPlex like a GX620 or better 745,755, 760, 780 WITH Windows 7 for $100 .
Used Insipiron 3847 towers are Less than $400.
My 3847 with 16 gigs DDR3 ram is quite a bit faster than an XPS 410.

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

Is there a way to STOP the updates indefinitely?

Good morning everyone,

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

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

Also, NO error codes are being seen either.

Things I have tried thus far:

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

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

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

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

5. Ran the Microsoft Fix-it t... Read more

Hello all,
Immediately after the December 2016 updates, we started to see some serious issues with multiple services crashing on all of our workstations.  My band-aid fix for it was to change the recovery options on the below services to just keep restarting,
but I think I've tried everything else google has to offer on this. Has anyone else ran into this issue? See services below.
Multimedia class service
Ike
IP helper
Group policy client
User profile service
Server
Shell hardware detection services
User profile service

I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit on SP2 on an old desk top which hadn't been updated since 2012. 
 
I connected to the internet and Windows Update has crashed, however the update history suggests an install Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.256
 
When manually checking for updates the icon appears to be searching however the icon in the icon tray states 'Windows can't check for updates'. There are no other error codes or diagnostic indicators.
 
I've scoured the internet trying to find a solution and have tried a number of suggested solutions none of which have had any impact.
 
If anyone can offer any help to get the update working again I'd really appreciate it.
