Q: Recent Windows Update KB2952664

Greetings to BC Community!!
 
Just attempted to install the latest 17 updates from M$. However KB2952664 failed to install. Never experienced any problems installing updates before and all usually go smoothly. This is a first for me. Just wondering if anyone else has had a problem with this particular update.
 
Regards............
 
Should have mentioned that I tried to install manually but it states there are no updates available. Then looked at installed updates and lo and behold it was there  So why does it show that it failed ?  Curious?
 
Any input would be graciously received.
 
Thanks.....................

Preferred Solution: Recent Windows Update KB2952664

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'm having an issue with updates today too. After installing if sends my PC into start up repair. I'm currently installing a few at a time to try to figure out which is the problem. Anybody else got this issue?
 
UPDATE:
I've now installed all updates except KB2949927. Strangely Windows Update reports this as a critical update but leaves it unticked. Do I try installing it or not?
UPDATE2:
I tried installing KB2949927 and that was indeed the update causing Startup Repair to launch and revert to a previous restore point. I've hidden that update for now but if anybody knows of the solution to this, please let me know.

This morning I powered up the computer and checked for updates. There were two optional updates. One update was for MSE and the other, as stated, KB2952664. This is a compatibility upgrade update for those who are participating in the Customer Experience
Improvement Program and performs diagnostics to see if current OS is able to upgrade to Win 10.
 
Well, this update showed up before as recommended not optional. I have no intention of upgrading. If I had, I would have taken the "free upgrade" when it was available. Why would I want to ruin a perfectly good system (that suits my needs and is tweaked to my preferences) to upgrade to a system that appears to be constantly experiencing problems.
 
I do not participate in the CEIP and I did not upgrade, so why is MS still pushing these types of updates??
 
Windows 7 will be my last OS from MS.

A:Windows Update KB2952664??

My only guess is Microsoft thinks people who eventually upgrade to Windows 10 will need this update. In October your only option will be to install rollup packages through WU. That update may eventually be included as Microsoft intends to have all previous fixes and reliability updates included in the rollup packages.
 
http://www.pcworld.com/article/3108407/windows/windows-7-and-8-1-updates-switching-to-cumulative-monthly-rollups-starting-in-october.html
 
On top of that, Microsoft intends to add older updates to the monthly rollup over time. Eventually, Microsoft wants to include every update between the “last baseline” for each operating system and the present. Presumably, that baseline is Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and the Windows 8.1 upgrade for Windows 8.
 
I presume this will include all the telemetry updates for Windows 7 I avoided. Security only updates will be available through the Windows Update Catalog but they will not be cumulative.

Hi,

Yesterday I decided that I want to upgrade my Windows 7 ultimate x64 to Windows 10. I never got the "Get windows 10" icon in my taskbar and was told I need to have Windows 7 SP1 installed, which I do have. I was also told that I would need the KB2952644 and KB3035583 updates. I tried downloading KB2952644 through windows update, but after my pc restarts to install the update, it says "Failure configuring windows, reverting changes" and I don't even see KB3035583 in windows update. I also tried manually updating by downloading it from here ( windows6.1-kb2952664-v10-x64_6cb844c61ff4a77098ee895e0f2904d494ff5d24.msu ) but it also gives me an error on installation. (Update could not be installed). I have never done any updates to windows since I installed it in 2011. Are there earlier updates I need to install first to be able to install these ones and also Windows 10?

I looked for a manual download of Windows 10 online and used this : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10 and now it is downloading windows 10, but I have a few questions.

Will I need to insert a key to upgrade to windows 10? (I have a genuine version of windows, but I have lost my key. Is there a way I can find it on my computer?)
Will the upgrade even work since I didn't "reserve" my upgrade because I didn't get the ' Get Windows 10' icon in my taskbar?
Will I be able to revert back to Windows 7 without issues, should something go wrong? (I have made a system ... Read more

A:Windows Update Error with KB2952664

You need to install ALL windows updates.
You can recover your Key using the following tool - ProduKey - Recover lost product key (CD-Key) of Windows/MS-Office/SQL Server (always assuming it's a genuine Key!)

As soon as you can get KB2952644 and KB3035583 to install, you'll be able to reserve your upgrade.

The errors in the CBSPersist file are interesting...
we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.

If I were to upgrade to Windows 8.1 or 9 it would be a clean install. So I'm thinking this update is unnecessary and I could hide it.

Believe it or not, one of the updates that made it possible for Microsoft to bring the Get Windows 10 nagware app on so many Windows 7 computers is back, this time without a clear reason.

KB2952664 landed on Windows 7 PCs on October 4, and Microsoft hasn?t yet provided us with information on why exactly it re-released this patch given the fact that it doesn?t seem to bring any notable changes.

According to the official KB page, this update is only supposed to improve the upgrade experience to Windows 10, but given the fact that free upgrades are no longer available, it?s hard to believe that this makes sense for anyone.



Telemetry update
On the other hand, it?s important to note that this is a telemetry update, so it helps Microsoft collect information on compatibility issues that might be experienced during the upgrade to Windows 10.

?This update performs diagnostics on the Windows systems that participate in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program. These diagnostics help determine whether compatibility issues may be encountered when the latest Windows operating system is installed.

I have a Win 7 PC that I am trying to update to Win 10 but no icon is appearing in the taskbar for updating, presumably as Microsoft thinks I haven't done a prescribed update. I have already successfully migrated two Win 8s and one Win 7.

I have checked my installed updates on my main PC and find that not only is that required update, KB2952664, there once but many times! I have noted some update duplication has been occurring for some time but a number of multiple 'successful' runs for this update is over the top. More than 100 entries!

Perhaps I should 'uninstall' all but one of these multiple entries.

I should add that the Win 7 PC involved is a Sony all-in-one and it definitely has a legitimate version of Win 7.

Anyone had this missing Win 10 icon problem and resolved it?

My computer started to lock up and BSOD every once in a while so I started to uninstall recent updates. This one "Update KB2952664" would come back every time I would reboot, even after turning off updates. I was finally able to remove it and reboot without it returning but now it continues to lock up when I shut down or when I do just about anything. I can get about 3 or 4 minutes of work done before a lockup. The BSOD is 0X000000F4 which doesn't tell you much. I would really like to get control again but just in case, I have ordered another Samsung 850 SSD and will reinstall the whole OS when that arrives.   I attempted to update and run Malwarebytes but that froze as well. I don't think it is malware related. I ran an MSE scan as well and that completed but found nothing. I thought I had System Restore turned on but it appears I did not. The last time I made a system image it Blue Screened at the very end. That was about 2 weeks ago...  I have tried doing a Startup Repair with the original disk but no luck with that either. It went through the process like it had worked but locked up again on shutdown.  Does anyone have any suggestions for gaining control again and resolving this problem? At this point I will try just about anything.

Hi, I am getting repeated failure of installation of the above package, necessary for the Windows 10 update next month. Every night the package tries to install, and then fails, reverting the changes and restarting a few times in the process. After Windows finally boots, in "Update History" it is shown as failed, however when I look at the list of installed updates it is there! But still regardless of this Windows Update tries to download and install.

What I have tried so far:

1) Uninstalling the update from Control Panel > Windows Update > List of Installed Updates
2) Uninstalling and re-installing .NET 4.5.2 (I saw this advice on a previous post)
3) After this Searching for updates again and installing

Unfortunately the same update failed and the same error code was reported.
I have downloaded the update file from Microsoft and was considering doing a manual install after uninstalling it again, but I'm not sure this is going to work, and it is frustrating seeing as the attempted install/failure/revert process takes about 30 mins. So I thought I would post here for help.

Welcome to TenForums, dbrtwo!

A few things things first, since we don't know what you've tried so far:

1) Can you uninstall the update to see if that stabilizes things? (Start / Settings / Update & security / Windows Update / Advanced options / View your update history / Uninstall updates)

2) Do you have a system restore point or, better yet, an external image backup, you can revert to?

3) Can you roll back any of the 3 drivers you downloaded?

4) Have you considered an in-place upgrade as a repair option? There's a tutorial here: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

5) There are options to do a more effective job of running DISM but we can get to that if need be if other options don't stabilize your system.

i got a brand new computer recently that came with windows 10. i had to reinstall it a few times because of issues i thought were related to the installation (plus the first attempt asked me for a key which i didn't have, the second one didn't). i didn't activate right away. i got two BSOD in 24 hours and thought it was my computer but found out online that it's windows 10's fault so i went to update windows. the update i got took so long it almost looked like a whole new installation though it said updating. when i came home i went to activate and got this message windows is not activated as your previous version of windows on this device was not activated prior to upgrade to windows 10 error code 0x803f7001.

i am nearly 100% positive that error wasn't there before the update. how the hell can i have a previous installation when this is an windows 10 oem computer?

i have pretty much had it with windows 10 because i'm pretty sure after reading online that all of my computer problems are windows related and not hardware.

A:windows won't activate after most recent update

i'm wondering if the update was bugged and it acted like a whole nother installation and that's the problem. i'm ticked because i'm having to wait forever to backup my pc so i don't have to start from scratch when i reinstall windows 10 AGAIN. if i do reinstall windows 10 which i don't see any other way then i'll make sure to activate windows BEFORE updating it. and i won't restore the backup until i do both of those things and i don't have a problem.

On 20th August various Windows updates were installed on my computer one of which was an update to my USB Wireless Mouse. The changes they have made to this are a total pain and I want to revert back to the way it was before the update.

This appears in my Update history;

Microsoft - Other hardware - Microsoft Hardware USB Wireless Mouse

Installation date: ‎20/‎08/‎2012 04:07

Installation status: Successful

Update type: Optional

Microsoft Other hardware software update released in May, 2012

But when I check in Installed Updates it is not there! It was installed, it was a successful update as stated above and it has made changes to the way my mouse settings are applied. How can I get shot of this update if it doesn't appear in installed updates and more to the point why doesn't it appear? By the way I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

Try using the rollback option in Device Manager, or System Restore.
You can then Hide the update to prevent it being installed again

It seems to me that a recent Windows 7 update from only about 3 or so days ago started a new problem where, for some reason, at the end of every day, between midnight to 1AM my time, (EST) my computer suddenly runs low on RAM/freezes up, the bad kind of freezing up where the ctrl alt del won't work (or the ctrl shift esc) and I have to force a reboot. I suspect the recent update because I realized it started happening after installing that, and I didn't install anything else recently.

So, basically, their is a recent windows 10 update, which is updating my Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributle 11.0.50727. However, it's causing my computer to softlock. You see, when my computer reboots to install the updates, it gets suck while booting back up with what I like to call the "White spinning wheel of death". It's a completely black screen, with a white spinning wheel at the bottom, windows does not progress past this screen. I've had to restore my computer twice now, back to '10/26/2016', and it's getting rather annoying. I don't want to have to do this every time it updates, so, does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? The only thing that I can think of is that, recently, I made some changes to the registry to forcibly turn off Cortana. Perhaps something from that is conflicting with the update? I don't know.

Hi, I am running Vista on an Acer Aspire M3641, and I have encountered no problems since purchasing it about 8 monthes ago, until the other day that is.

2/3 Days ago I updated my computer with the most recent Microsoft Update before closing down, went to my friends house, came back, turned the machine on and my computer crashed upon turning it on. The blue screen of death literally pops up for a second or 2:

http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/6483/100220101146.jpg

then a message called Windows Error Recovery appears, it gives me the option of either start Windows normally (which just restarts the computer) or Launch Startup Repair.

When choosing the startup repair, there is a couple of minutes wait, then the messege "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically"and then it asks whether or not it wants me to send info about the problem or not which it doesnt let me do anyway, but it lets me open a window called problem details:

AND:

after this I have no other option other than to click finish, and this shuts the pc down.

I have also tried tapping f8 to boot the computer up in safe mode but this also doesnt
work, i have no idea what to do, if anyone could help me it would be greatly appreiciated!

thanks in anticipation

So today windows update notified me of some new updates (about 30mb or so) and like I normally do I installed them. However, upon restarting the computer,it just got stuck at the Starting Windows boot screen. However, the animation with the colourful windows logo DID NOT show up, it was simply a black screen with the two words: Starting Windows.

I have tried the startup repair tool - nothing. Chkdsk found no errors as well. When I tried to system restore, I could see a list of previous restores, but each one of them gives me an error at the end of the restore. If needed I can post the error code and the error messages if there are any. I have also tried going into safe mode, but it just hangs at the screen where it says "Loading windows files" at the top.

I highly suspect that the recent batch of updates is the culprit, since this failure to boot rose right after I installed them. Luckily I can access all the files when I plug the HDD into a different computer, so I have been able to backup my important files. Can anybody suggest any other methods whereby I can rollback the recent updates I installed? Unfortunately I do not have a windows backup (totally my fault). If not, I guess a fresh install would be my last resort.

Hello,

Recently, a friend of mine got the latest windows update and he turned off his computer to install the updates like normal. However, now his computer is unable to boot up to windows. It gets to the "welcome" screen and he is able to choose adminstrator or his own profile. When he chooses one, either one, it loads for only a few seconds, then shoots him right back to that welcome screen again. I've worked with him on it and we've tried safe mode and same error occurs. Then we tried using the xp cd to boot from cd. Everything was going fine, got the message "press any key to boot from cd" which we did. It did the normal by "inspecting your hardware configuration" but then it reboots the computer after doing that for like 10 seconds.

I'm all out of ideas if booting from cd wont work and we cant load windows. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Hey everyone,
I've been having an issue with a Windows 7 Update, I think it was either a Critical Security Update, or Critical Windows Update.

I had several updates to install, so I installed them, then it wanted me to restart the computer, which I did. Upon booting, I get a quick glance of the dreaded BSOD, and the computer restarts, and comes up with Startup Repair, and asks me if I wanted to use System Restore. I click yes, and after a while my computer restarts without problems, and I can actually log into Windows. A dialogue box appears, saying that "System Restore did not complete successfully, your computer's files and settings were not changed", yet that cannot be true because I noticed some software restored, which I had previously uninstalled.

I managed to find what update was causing the problem using the process of elimination, several restarts and system restores, and could install every other update without a problem.

However, a few days later, I again get the BSOD during startup. So I thought that that update had gotten installed somehow, and restored two days earlier. But this time it was not a success. I still could not boot Windows. So I restored to even earlier date, and now I could get to the Login screen. I tried to login, but it gave me a temporary account, so I logged out and tried to login again. Same result, but a restart fixed this.

Now some of my software is corrupted. (Java, Microsoft Word, Google Chrome, Skype and a couple o... Read more

Hi: The latest W10 update messed up the audio in almost every one of my HP business desktops and notebook PC's. I had to reinstall the audio drivers to get everything to work right. Two of my PC's do not have W10 audio driver support. For my HP 350 business notebook, I had to reinstall the W8.1 IDT audio driver, which restored normalcy. For my HP dc7800 business desktop, I had to reinstall the W7 Soundmax audio driver, which restored normalcy. Your notebook does not have W10 audio drivers either. So, here are two recommendations for drivers I have... First, create a system restore point in case these drivers make a bad situation worse, and then you can revert to your current status. Then reinstall the W8.1 audio driver from your notebook's support page and restart the PC This package contains the driver that enables the IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp59501-60000/sp59620.exe If that doesn't fix the problem, try this IDT audio driver from a newer model notebook (15t-j100) that has the Beats Audio. Install and restart the PC. This package contains the driver that enables the IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. 6.10.6491.0 Rev.     Sep 30, 2013 http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp63501-64000/sp63555.exe

I allowed the recent Windows and MS Office updates to install on my Windows 7 system this past week.
 
After re-booting, the Snipping Tool would no longer work.
 
I backed off all the updates; then reinstalled all but those  three associated with MS Office 2007 security updates and rebooted.
 
The snipping tool was operational again.
 
I have not seen any other indication that others experienced this problem. I have still not re-installed the three updates associated with MS Office 2007 security.
 
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed at this point?
 
Thank you.

I was prompted to install Windows Updates there were 2, and I restarted after finishing some work.

I was not able to access my ISP address when opening mail and My Firefox would not locate addresses for saved pages before closing, I uninstalled these dated Jan 20 09, wrote them down on a note pad, but unfortunately when closing to restart did not save them, any way to find out what they were ? I looked on the schedule but they were not there, after the restart I got reconnected ok, and have a new set of updates, I think these are the two I just uninstalled;

Security Update for Windows XP (KB851748)

Security Update for Windows XP (KB958687)

Can anyone tell me anything about these since I believe the

Hi wizards,

I recently downloaded ca.25MB worth of "14 essential (Vista) updates" from Microsoft (see screen cap below); after installation and reboot the available space on C: dropped by a significant ca.700MB, which seems a little odd to me.

After an AntiVir sweep (clean) in Safe Mode I rebooted yet again, now having 'miraculously' regained ca.300MB (of the above 700).

Any ideas what's happening here?

Thanks, Novice2009

A:Why does recent Windows update hog 700MB?

During Windows Updates, system restore points are created, the Update installers/ files are added to \windows\winsxs, etc... I see nothing unusual here.

Since you have SP2 installed, you can remove SP1 related files if you wish -

So my Windows does automatic updates that I install later. I assume they are safe and required...probably a stupid assumption in hindsight. I sign on this morning after having done the updates last night and a new program popped up...XP Antivirus 2008.

This program ran a scan and then told me I had numerous threats on my system that I needed to address. Of course, I have to register first but, I can't do that since the email I used to "purchase" the program is not the same one I am trying to use to activate it. HUH WHAT? I go into settings and lo an behold, I can turn off the thing. Neither can I sneak into the Control Panel and delete it...seems it does not exist.

So I am going to assume that this was not part of my Windows update but, would leave me at a loss as to where it came from. Am i going to have to reformat to delete it? Nothing else seems to kill it!
