Preferred Solution: Removing System Update Package

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


Hi, I am running a Thinkpad Edge. I had  a hard disk failure, and I installed a brand new hard disk, and a new Windows 7 OS. I am trying to figure out how to update all the drivers. When I run System Update, I get "no package applicable to your system were found" Please help. Thanks,PKD

I have the following problem. Our cable internet provider sells a security package that you can install on your machine.

We moved and I left the computer with my daughter while she was at school. She never updated the security package so it has expired. She is moving out of town where service from that vendor is not available.

I would like to remove their security package but I have not be successful in doing so.

I went into control panel --> programs --> and un-installed their package --> cable provider internet security package.


I notice I still see their icon when you turn on their computer. It comes in as a pop-up. the windows security centre under the firewall menu still has a reference to the application - a button allowing you to select the Cable modem Internet Security Services 8.02 firewall package. All the files for the app are still under c:\program files\cable modem Internet Security.

So although I unistalled it from control panel programs it still seems to be there?

did I make a mistake by not unloading the application before I went to control panel and uninstalled it?

Question 2:
Any idea of how I am going to get rid of it? Can I still delete the relevant files under program files and that takes care of it?

thanks in advance

A:removing a security package


This could get messy if it is an adaptation of something like ZoneAlarm, a very sticky thing to get rid of in some of the earlier versions. My first suggestion, but others may have better ideas, would be to do a system restore back to before you uninstalled it. That should reinstate it.

Then get a free copy of Revo Uninstaller and install that. It has a "Hunter" mode and when you click that you get what looks like cross hairs on a gun sight. Drag that to the Security icon and drop it, then click Uninstall.

Select option 4 (by default it is set at 3) and then follow though the pages. It may take 5 or more minutes, be patient and delete everything that it suggests. In the Registry section ONLY click the Bold items for deletion. There may be a lot with non-bold ones in between so be careful.

When it has finished, reboot and let's know where it is at.

excuse me for my mistakes bu I am not a native English speaker.

I run a Windows 7 Pro sp1 x64 and I use NTBackup.exe to perform my weekly full backup (I know that NTBackup is not meant to be run on Windows 7, but it perfectly fits my needs and it perfectly run until last windows update).

Since last windows update of 10/02/2015, NTbackup fails and in the NTBackup log I find this message: "Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:Catastrophic failure".
Looking into Windows Event Log/Applications I find 3x error messages related to in VSS, where the only really significant one is "Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance.  hr = 0x80004002. 42554543584D4C43333533320000000042554543584D4C433334393400000000".

I spent the last three hours reading about potential NTBackup issues and I think I can exclude those related to VSS itself because:
- the "Volume Shadow Copy" and the "Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider" services perfecly start, stop and restart
- I can browse previous versions of files being saved (e.g. because of system restore points)
- the "vssadmin list writers" reports all writers being stable and with no errors
I therefore wanted to try and uninstall the KB3032622 but was unable to, since it is not listed in those than can be uninstalled.
Here my questions:
1- Is anybody experiencing my issue?
2- Has anybody been able to solve it? ... Read more

A:Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Update 4 Redistributable Package (KB3032622) breaking NTBackup

the only other thoughts I have;
- it could be broken, because it was never intended to function, and it has only worked ok until now as a happy accident
- it's extremely unlikely that MSFT would have ever tested for the use of WinXp NTBackup on Win7, so unlikely to get formal support for the scenario
- there may be others with related experience, you may find in the dedicated storage/backup forums like

https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=winserverfiles or

ThinkVantage System Update is broken on my T520. It will start and you can click on "Get new updates" and then after downloading 17% it says "an error occurred" and it won't go any farther. I tried restarting the computer several times and updating everything in Windows update. This happened right after I removed the keyboard and bezel to clean out dust. System Update stopped working as soon as I put them back and turned on the computer. Before that I never had a problem with it.

I got an update notice for an MSE Client Package to update to MSE V4 (KB2691905).
The update failed on Win7-x64 leaving no AV installed.

I tried to download MSE and I get a "Page cannot be found" at
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

I did find this page can download MSE, but I'm not sure what it would download/install...

If anyone knows more about this, I'd appreciate any info.

I re-booted the PC in Win7-x86 for now, using Avast ...

Not sure if this post should also be in "Windows Updates and Activation" subforum.
I don't want to duplicate a post...


A:MSE Client Update Package - V4 failed

I got the update notice yesterday and used your first link. When I clicked the Free* download button it showed an upgrade dialog box and the upgrade went smoothly. It's possible that you may have remnants of the old version of MSE that are preventing the new version from installing. This Microsoft KB article may help.

How to manually uninstall Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0.1963 if you cannot uninstall it by using the Add or Remove Programs item

I'd use the Fix it button first and then try to reinstall MSE. Remove Avast first through Programs and Features and then run the official Avast uninstaller to remove any Avast remnants.

Hi Guys
Is there a package to overall update norton antivirus 2004? Both virus definitions and the program itself and without connecting to web.
I got connected to the internet on a friend's XP before installing SP2 and updating norton, and now norton antivirus is disappeared from tray and won't run, even after uninstalling and reinstalling.
I'm now planning to update both NAV and XP offline, because updating them through the slow dial-up is almost impossible and makes the computer vulnerable to viruses. I've got SP2. All I need now is an offline update to Norton AntiVirus.

A:Solved: Norton AntiVirus Update Package

I don't know about program updates but,when I had NAV, I frequently used the Intelligent Update feature on the Symantec website to d/l the whole definitions database, about 5.5 MB, to my desktop as an .exe file and then installed it myself by doubleclicking.

I suppose that it would, theoretically, be possible (and legal?) for someone with a licensed version of 2004 to d/l the database and burn a copy which you could install in your licensed copy. However, now that NAV uses product activation, it is possible that your friend's version of the database would not install in your copy.

Anyway, before you could even try that, you would have to successfully reinstall your copy of 2004;http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...=2004 for Windows 2000/Me/98/XP&osv=&osv_lvl=.

I have an HP laptop running Vista SP2 32bit system. I went to bed on 10/1/2012 with my computer running fine. I woke up the next day to find all hell had broken loose. Weird little things were happening that weren't right so I went to Eset and did an online scan. Sure enough, 2 win32/olmarik viruses showed up. Did the quarantine. Iobit flush of system. Thought everything was ok. Went back to Eset, did another scan, now 9 viruses. Just a few: win32/olmarik AJE trojan ; win52/olm A troj ; win/64 olm G troj, etc. Some even saying "maybe variation of...". Did the whole TDSS Killer, MRT.exe, ran AVG. Rebooted, went to Eset, ran a scan and got the same: win32/AFK, ADZ & AJE trojans and a win32/openinstallapp. Totally pissed at that point. Did a back trace to see where the trigger was and what may have caused it. Two things: one, it was showing it comes from a gaming toolbar I use (which I've had for 2 yrs & NEVER had a problem with!). I uninstalled, went into regedit and found various entries left in there, along with the numbers that were showing up on the viruses when I clicked on properties on Eset.

So I downloaded the latest driver for Intel 4500MHD integrated graphics for my laptop from windows update (which it did automatically after installing Windows 7) and I found out that it isn't just the display driver... its also the software package for display settings etc. from Intel. I don't want this because it installs startup keys, a right-click context menu, and a tray icon, all of which I would never use. Is there anyway to uninstall the software package but keep the display driver?

I find it kind of lame that Microsoft would bundle drivers like this.

Hi, I am not sure about this....

I run Secunia - the software updater/ checker and it tells me that this is outdated and needs a patch for "security reasons"

microsoft visual C++ 2005 redistributable package (x86)

Does anyone know what this is and do I really need to update it?

Obviously I can make a system image before installing in case anything goes wrong but I was just more curious to know what this is.


PS I am 32 bit!!

A:Update Needed: Microsoft visual C++ 2005 redistributable package

Microsoft Visual C++ is normally installed along side an application. They install runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries which are required to run applications developed with Visual C++ on a computer that does not have Visual C++ 2005 installed.

Theres a good chance that a piece of software on your system requires the C++ libraries to run, it is safe to leave the application on there, you might have issues with a specific program if you remove it.

If you can verify the update is coming from Microsoft, there should be no problem downloading an update for it.

Recently, a Windows update arrived called Microsoft Security Essentials Client Update Package - KB2544035. Since then my computer started malfunctioning. Whenever, I try to install the update, everything goes fine, and then suddenly goes blank and the desktop returns (but the Windows update screen had closed). When I open Windows update, it shows that the aforesaid update is not installed. And when I try to open Microsoft Security Essentials shortcut on my desktop, the machine is not able to find it and asks to delete it. I cant even open Microsoft Security Essentials manually from Program files. Things return to normal on System Restore. But the Microsoft Security Essentials appears potentially unprotected and asks for a full system scan. But before the scan is complete the Microsoft Security Essentials screen closes and the desktop returns once again. And, once again, when I try to open Microsoft Security Essentials shortcut on my desktop, the machine is not able to find it.

This problem has occurred twice already, and Im very frustrated. I tried to full system scan in Safe Mode and that has not helped.

I have been installing a number of hotfixes for Windows 7 using MSU files and the wusa.exe utility included in Windows. I thought it would be a good idea to generate separate log files for each update as it was installed since wusa.exe now supports this
option using /log:<file name>. However, the log files created do not seem to be regular text files or any other log file format that I immediately recognize. When opened in Notepad or Wordpad you can see that they contain a lot of additional binary data
which can't be read by a regular text viewer.
Does anyone know what format these log files are in? What tool should you use to read them?

Hi! Have got around 200 M73 Tiny nettops running by production users.Currently installed BIOS versions are 58 and 61.We need to update all of them to latest BIOS version 76 due to fixing recent Spectre vulnerability.

I thought updating to Windows 10 would solve some problems, and I did this in October, 2015.  Everything was fine until a couple of months ago.  The end result was when I tried to refresh the computer to factory defaults, it went back to 8.0 or 8.1, and I evidently lost something in the process.
Now, I cannot update to Windows 10 and when I tried to resinstall the Dell Operating System, I get for both:  "WE COULDN'T UPDATE THE SYSTEM RESERVED PARTITION."
I DO HAVE A SYSTEM BACKUP ON 20 CDS (MADE WHEN I HAD WINDOWS 10).  Could I reinstall the system with these backupdisks?  How do I do that?  I also have a Dell 2 Boot USP stick, I have a recovery stick, too, but it semed that when I used this, I received a message that not all files were recovered
What should I do at this point? 

A:Error message when trying to update to Windows 10 or to reinstall operating system 8.1: We couldn't update the system reserved partition."

On MBR disk, Windows 10 requires a 500MB system reserved partition, while 100MB in Windows 7, so you can try to extend system reserved partition.
In disk management, you can only extend partition using the unallocated space next to its right side. so even if you shrink D: drive, the option to extend the efi partition is still grayed out. My suggestion is to use a third party software, AOMEI Partition Assistant, both the standard (free) or the Professional(paid) version can extend partition as long as there is unallocated space on that hard drive. to see more information read:

I have MS Word 2007 and vista. Word worked fine, but now when i try to open a word doc it says "preparing to install" for a brief moment and then i get an error message saying:

This update package could not be opened. Verify that the update package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer update package.

I had the same problem with my Office 2007. I found that I had actually installed a trial version of Office 2007 Professional that came with my Office Basic. When it expired, nothing worked.

So, I went to http://www.microsoft.com/office/backup and selected the option to download a backup copy of the software (since it didn't come with a CD). When it's done downloading (I have 1.5 MBps down and it takes roughly an hour), I have the license key that came with the computer to activate the version I should have installed to begin with!

Hope that helps!

I'm trying to test the integrity of some ".cab" packages through DISM and Package Manager but I keep getting the generic error message "the system cannot find the file specified".

In Package Manager, I use the syntax,

Command Prompt> pkgmgr.exe /ip /m:c:\test\test.cab

Alternatively, I might add quotes around the pathname:

Command Prompt> pkgmgr.exe /ip /m:"c:\test\test.cab"

The error received in pkgmgr is:

Operation failed with 0X80070002.  The system cannot find the file specified.

My initial impression was that my syntax was incorrect, though I can't spot the error.  The path points to "test.cab" which is a renamed windows addon which contains the necessary "svcpack" folder and the "entries_XX.ini"
file.  I've used several different ".cab" files, including some downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog, with the same result.  Hopefully this rules out the possibility of a corrupt or incompatible file.  I've also tried this
whole procedure on different computers, and have received the exact same error code, so i doubt the pkgmgr tool istelf is corrupt.

Lastly, I've tried an alternative Windows 7/8 tool DISM to try to achieve essentially the same task using the following syntax in an elevated command prompt:

Commnand Prompt> dism.exe /online /add-package /packagepath:c:\test\test.cab

This produces a similar error:
