Persistent group update failures

Q: Persistent group update failures

Win7 Professional 64

Received the machine several days ago. After ~the 3rd series of updates a group of ~20 updates failed. On subsequent updates the system would locate and attempt to install and fail the same update group.

Subsequently, when soft or hard booting the machine seems to install updates (even if I haven't requested), once approximating the login screen the machine reboots, reverts all the updates and comes back to the login screen.

When this first occured I checked the first several updates using the MS onboard update error determinator. However, the errors for those several were not a member of the MS list so I stopped checking.

I suspect this problem isn't with the individual updates but with the OS record keeping for this stuff?

I'm posting a screen shot of the update history. I haven't checked the listing yet but I'm fairly certain there are redundancies for boot dates since, as previously mentioned, updates now try and install/revert each boot?

Preferred Solution: Persistent group update failures

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.)

HPE-400f Pavilion has been crashing to black screen with cursor with problems booting windows 7. Was getting BIOHD4 error code, then BIOHD3 -- Warning: No Active Partition. Installed 2 spare hard drives to alleviate crowding but problem continues. In troubleshooting have noticed the boot-up priority order keeps changing, so that the HDD group is not first, and also so the main - OS C: - hard drive is not on top of the list. Correcting these problems allows windows to boot up just fine, but then random crashes or bootup failures continue (constantly). Have taken everything out and reconnected, done a clean install from HP disks (reformatting and wiping the HD), system repair, virus scans, etc., yet problem continues. How can I fix the boot-up routines so the computer keeps them as they should be and doesn't keep rearranging them on its own thereby causing Windows to hang up? (Sorry I didn't get the dump file instructions - what type do we set up? mini?)

I have recently had some errors popping up on my laptop. I can no longer access any internet or network settings. It tells me the connection is unknown that a dependency or group failed to start. Kaspersky also fails to load and slows my computer down drastically.

Is there any known issues with a Windows Hotfix that would cause all these services to crap out like that? I can't see the windows update history either as all that pops up is a white screen. Any help is appreciated.

Here is a list of a consistent group of spyware that installs into my system on every internet connection oppurtunity they have.

1.) Ad Destroyer
2.) BMSE dbl
3.) Ezula
4.) IE Help
5.) IEC System
6.) SE Assistant
7.) SE Help
8.) Search Assistant
9.) Search Function
10.) Sidebar Search
11.) Virtual Bouncer (I hate it with a passion.)

Of course, I wipe'em all out with HiJackThis, Spy Bot, Pest Patrol, or "Add\Remove Programs" (I mostly use Pest Patrol for the actual files and then "Add\Remove Programs" for the hollow entries) and the storm calms down for the rest of the internet connection session. Then they creep on up again the next time I get online and the battle starts again.

When internet connection begins, I'm bombarded within 2 minutes and and then every minute after that (my "registry detecting" programs report and detect changes to the registry but the spyware forces itself to install even though I tell my programs to refuse the registry entry). While the spyware is installing itself, I just kill the process via task manager before the installation matures but a part of the spyware still installs. Consequently, I use either use Pest Patrol or "Add/Remove Programs" to get rid of 'em and I've disabled my internet connection when I don't need to go on line.

Any help or ideas are truly appreciated.

You've prolly already done this, but you may want to go to "Start" -->"Run" --> type "Msconfig". Then check your startup. Possibility of the programing being started every time you boot. Just a thought

From the SFC report, it looks like it found a couple of errors in the .NET 3.5 installation - and fixed them (together with a faulty bmp file)
Have you also run a CHKDSK? - often a random error can indicat file system problems, so it would be worth running CHKDSK C: /R and seeing if that helps.

I've got a new problem within the last three days. Windows update had failed on the last two PC's that I"ve setup. One is a Dell Dell system and the other I've reformatted and reloaded Windows on in preparation for redeployment.

On both systems, I've gone to Windows update and downloaded updates. They appear to download OK, but the fail to install. Have looked at logs and tried to get the systems to allow the download again, but they think the updates are still there. At one time we we renamed the folders were the temporary files for the updates reside so they downloaded again, but they failed to install a second time.

This is a strange one because there are no error messages or numbers in the log so don't know where to go for a solution or why. This happened on both PC's after a successful update to Windows XP Service Pack 3. On both PC's I was able to go to the download site and download and install IE 7.0 successfully.

Does any one have any ideas on what might have happened in the last few days with MS to result in this inability to download and install? I've followed the same steps numerous times as late as ten days ago very successfully.

Thanks for your help, Judy

Hi Forum board,

This update is preventing my computer from shutting down because every time I go to turn my computer off, it automatically tries to install this update, and it will stay on the update page for hours and hours without making any progress forcing me to power off manually.
Is this update necessary? If not, how do I remove it or if so, how do i fix this problem? any tips would be awesome.

"The installer took too long and was terminated" This is the message that it will display. It means that you are updating your computer with a slow/poor internet connection, like mobile, or dial up. My advise is, if you do not have any other internet connection, just go to Microsoft.com, and download manualy any update that uyou might need. Thats the best way...

I originally posted this 01/01/08, and have edited it since then. Windows Update troubles continue to be a frequent subject posted on this forum. I've suggested that it merits a "sticky" because of the frequency, but apparrently it does not.

There are a number of things that can break Windows Update in XP, including performing a repair/reinstall. Some are also having issues after installing Service Pack 3. For a quick fix, do this:

Open Notepad and copy/paste the following text:

regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 atl.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuweb.dll
regsvr32 wups2.dll
regsvr32 msxml.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 msxml2.dll
regsvr32 qmgr.dll
regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll
regsvr32 Softpub.dll
regsvr32 Mssip32.dll
regsvr32 Initpki.dll
end

Save the file to your desktop as UpdatesFix.cmd (you'll have to click the "Save As Type... dropdown and select "All Files" before you click the Save button).

Some of these dll files can take a bit to get reregistered. If you use the /s switch in the script, as some suggest, you might think that the thing has hung or stopped responding, because that switch silences any feedback from the script itself. I don't use the /s switch, because I want to know just what's going on.

If you'd rather not try the batch file, you can enter each line in the Run box one at a time and click OK after each one.

A friend's acer laptop is having serious issues.
 
1. IE won't load, just crashes every time you try. (More of this shortly).
 
2. Windows updates are not being installed. Sometimes the updater will identify the updates needed, however when you try to install them, they all fail. Then when you run the updater again, it crashes after telling you that it can't find any updates.
 
What I have tried so far:
 
1. Ran malwarebytes. Removed several nasty items, including wajam and snapdo. The updater appeared to work at this point, (although IE didn't). It identified 8 updates but again failed to install them.
 
2. I downloaded the MS fixit program for update failure, however it wouldn't run, it just crashes and gives the same error as IE.
 
3. I then tried to run updater in safe mode with networking, but it won't run.

Well, looking up "Error Code 0x80070643" using Google yielded this result:
You receive error code 0x80070643 or error code 0x643 when you use the Windows Update or Microsoft Update Web sites to install updates

This looked promising, but the way that they described to add entries to the Registry didn't work on my system, I had to use 'regedit' to do it manually.

Near the bottom of the Microsoft web page, it also had a link to this:
How to Enable Windows Installer Logging in Windows XP

What this new page described also did not work in my system, as far as finding the results of the Windows Installer logging that is turned on by the new Registry entries.

Fortunately, I already know how to find the System Logs in Windows XP, by using:

Hello, I haven't posted in some time and I need help. Windows Updates for Windows 7 Pro have failed since August 16, 2012. It attempts to update upon every shutdown and reboot. When booting back up, it indicates that Windows Update failed to install updates and restores to previous configuration. I've tried to uncheck every update in the history of updates and when I exit the dialog box and reopen it, all individual updates are checked again! I've attempted to do a system restore to the day before the problem started (Aug. 15, 2012) yet the restore fails with the following error dialog "Windows Restore failed to replace the file (C:/windows) with it's original copy from the restore point, an unspecified error occurred during system restore (0x80071a90)? I'm at a loss. Is it possible to uninstall all updates from Microsoft back to the point at which the problem started? What's going on with system restore? I tried going back to Aug. 12 where the updated were successful and restore from there yet I get the same message. Is it possible to repair using the Windows 7 Pro install disk? I also tried running the Microsoft Fix PC app. It didn't fix the problem. Dose anyone have a clue how to uninstall the updates (if they even installed as the dialog indicated update failure). The first update to fail was Security Update for Windows 7 x64 based systems (KB2712808)
I appreciate the assistance.
 

A:Windows Update Failures

Try installing the (failed) updates one at a time. You may have to restart after each one.

Start - All Programs - Windows Update. It will probably give a list; if not do a "check for updates." Then un-select all but one and try to install that one.

Hi

I am running Win 7 Pro x64 on an HP Elite 7100 and have been having persistent issues with update failures - most updates fail and a few succeed but with no apparent pattern.

Running the System Update Readiness tool produced the attached log file. From what I glean it suggests that some elements of an earlier update (KB2443685) are corrupt.

I would be grateful for any help/suggestions to fix this issue.

Hello Nick, and welcome to the Seven Forums!

Well done on uploading that log file.

I am sorry to hear that you are having problems. If all goes well, then this *shouldn't* be too hard to fix. I shall create a special fix, just for your computer (to repair just those corrupt files) and show you how to use it.

Unfortunately, I am currently at work, and I can't create this fix while at work, but it is nearly the end of the day

Please give me just a few more hours, and I will be back with further instructions.

Please just hang on for a little while longer for me!

I've been trying to update to insider build 14342. My system shuts down and reboots normally for the update, but after the spinning cursor, I see what appears to be a command prompt on a blue screen flash briefly, then what appears to be the normal progress dialog for the update flashes for a split second before my machine reboots back to the welcome screen. I tried the steps involving shutting down the WU and related services, renaming SoftwareDistribution and catroot2 and bringing the services back up. I also tried the downloadable windows update troubleshooter and the built in troubleshooter, which both detect that "Service registration is missing or corrupt". The built-in troubleshooter says it fixes the problem, but it keeps coming back up when run again.

After trying this, windows update started giving me errors 0x8007007a and 0x8000ffff, but rebooting and trying to update a couple more times got past that, but I still end up with my system rebooting immediately after the install starts as per my initial problem. Any help would be appreciated.

I am an IT pro, 35 years building, fixing and programming, and I am less than pleased with Microsoft and Windows 7 updates. Or perhaps the better wording would be lack of updates.
I've been working on a friends Acer laptop for the past 4 days now. Some strange issues so we decided to restore from the Windows backup image. Note, this is not the Acer image, all of that was lost a few years back. This image was taken from a full format,

After restoring the image, it was impossible to get WU to get anything, it would sit there and spin for hours on end. All of the usual tricks were tried, various "fixit" and manual editing (turn off services, clear catalogues, register DLL's etc...
Nothing worked. It was then discovered that there was bad ram, which was replaced. All other hardware diagnostics passed.
The image was again restored, and WU ran again for 10 hours and got nothing. At that point, a full format of the drive was done again, 7 was installed (licensed and registered), no drivers or other software was installed. There are no errors in device manager,
nothing is missing or flagged as bad. The "install updates for Office and other..." was enabled, and WU was run again.
It has now been 12 hours... and nothing. Just spins away like forever. The router log does show the connection to the update site. No issues with internet connectivity, and the connection is via ... Read more

For info:

When troubleshooting another issue, I looked through my Event Viewer logs. Under setup, I found an error indicating an update had failed to install.

(The Windows update "Hotfix for Windows (KB954708)" could not be installed because of an error: 2149842966 "" (Command line: ""C:\Windows\system32\wusa.exe" "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Windows Live\.cache\9cd6e45f1c9e616\Windows6.0-KB954708-x86.msu" /quiet /norestart ")

In the WU update history, there was no indication of any failed update. I installed the KB from the MS web site and it installed nicely.

So, it it seems that lack of listings of failed updates in Windows Update is no bullet proof indication no installation failed.

Today I get word from the owner that they keep getting a msg that updates failed. So, this afternoon I attempted to install the updates. Here?s the chronological attempts I made:
1. Went to Control Panel.... Windows Update
2. There were 17 Updates to install.
3. Downloaded and successfully installed 13 updates.
4. Rebooted
5. Went to Control Panel.... Windows Update.
6. 3 optional updates
7. Downloaded and successfully installed 3 updates.
8. Rebooted
9. Went to Control Panel.... Windows Update
10. All but the MSE update had failed (see log)
Repeated the above with same results. Something is wrong.

I then went to the W7 forum for advice and found the forum for update problems. Jotted down the requests you made for starting a new thread. Ran only three updates, 2 were successful and one failed with an error code of 80070005.
Ran scf /scannow and everything checked out, downloaded and installed SURT and the CBS folder is provided. Tomorrow morning I will attempt to install update again to see if SURT corrected anything.

As you probably know by now I just did a fresh install of my Win XP Home lol Everything is running smoothly except that the Microsoft Update keeps failing whenever I try to download and install the updates it shows are available. It didn't do that when I first finished reinstalling my OS so I don't think the installation of Win is the problem.

When I ran the update (from the website), it showed a list of all of the available updates. The first one it suggested to install was Service Pack 3. I did. It finished up, restarted, then I went back into the updates again to continue installing the additional elements available and they won't install.

I select them (I've even tried them one at a time), I click review and install, the window pops up, they download and the progress bar fills, then it shows the installation and the progress bar fills, then the summary pops up and it says, "the following were not installed" and it's always whatever I chose.

Could the SP3 be the issue since that's the one thing that downloaded and installed fine and then nothing else after it? Should I uninstall it?

I didn't reinstall previous packs because when that one came up it said it included all of the previous packs. Should I not trust that and just go back to install each service pack and hot fix individually?

Thanks again lol

A:[SOLVED] Windows Update Failures

Give this a try:

There are a number of things that can break Windows Update in Windows XP, including performing a repair/reinstall. For a fix, try these next steps:

Open Notepad or WordPad and copy/paste the following text:

regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 atl.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuweb.dll
regsvr32 wups2.dll
regsvr32 msxml.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 msxml2.dll
regsvr32 qmgr.dll
regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll
end

Save the file to your desktop as UpdatesFix.cmd (you'll have to click the "Save As Type…. Dropdown arrow on the right of the selection window and select "All Files" before you click the Save button).

If you'd rather not try the batch file, you can enter each line in the Run box one at a time and click OK after each one.

Double-click the UpdatesFix.cmd file; a command window will open, and you'll see a series of dialogue boxes saying DLLRegisterServer in *.dll succeeded. Click OK to step through the process.
Once all the dll's have been successfully reregistered visit the Windows Update site and try the Windows updates again to see if it works correctly.
Often you will have to download and install Windows Installer 3.1 and the Windows Genuine Advantage tool before you can download any more updates.

Hello everyone. I'm using an HP Laptop with Windows XP. It is very old and I'm planning on upgrading, but for the time being I need it to work for the next few months. However, recently my computer's performance has plummeted to a near-unusable state.
Google searches are redirecting to a variety of sites. The ones I can remember include Happili, Scour, click.getanswers, and other hijack sites depending on the search material. Furthermore, minutes after Windows has started up, SVCHost starts using large amounts of CPU, and it gets worse the longer it runs, up to near 100% CPU usage. This taxes my computer to the point where it either lags to where it is practically frozen, I get a BSOD, or my system automatically shuts down due to overheating.

Ending the task with Task Manager does nothing; it starts again almost immediately. According to Process Explorer, the culprit is SVCHost netscvs. I have used several malware scanners including Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware, but they have done nothing to solve the problems.

The malware also seems to have compromised my ability to use Windows Update. When using Automatic Updates, it seems to work, but in actuality I am downloading the same update every time. Updates also fail if I download them directly from Microsoft.com.

I am out of ideas as to what to do. Please help!

I have found the same problem as a lot of other readers in that Windows update in Vista just does not work any more. It seemed to start after a Windows Defender Update. I'm not sure but I think Microsoft have unwittingly produced an 'autoimmune' response with their own updates. I found that by using Internet Tools in internet explorer, and citing the update path as a trusted site, windows update worked again! Well it worked for me anyway.

So step wise

1. Open Internet Explorer
2. Click on Tools
3. Click on Security
4. Click on 'Trusted sites'
5. Disble the tick box 'Enable Protected Mode'
6. Click on 'Sites'
7. In 'Add this website to the zone type: https//*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
8. Click 'Add'
9. Ensure 'Require server verification' is not checked
10. Close

I then rebooted but this may not be necessary. I found that after that all seemed to work again ok.

Please let me know if t works for you

Robin
