hotfix kb2861819 is not applicable on windows 7 enterprise with SP1

Q: hotfix kb2861819 is not applicable on windows 7 enterprise with SP1


I've been encountering the exact problem described in kb2861819:

but for some inexplicable reason every version of it that try to install fails with "update not applicable to your computer".
I should also note that the computer I'm working on is set on an closed network and therefore has no internet access nor access to windows update.
Any idea why this happens and how to install this hotfix?

Preferred Solution: hotfix kb2861819 is not applicable on windows 7 enterprise with SP1

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.)


Hotfix KB2845626 says it's not applicable for my system. We use Windows 7 Enterprise in our company and experience the symptoms described. We have all the lates updates for Windows 7 installed.

Is there a newer hotfix available or another solution to the topic?

Recently i have imaged some new desktops with Windows 7 x64 SP1 and made it up-to-date with WSUS. Then i tried to install hotfixes KB2618096 and KB2618190 to prevent SMB2 problems with some of our applications. I get the message "This update is not
applicable to your computer". 
I have checked the KB-articles. If i understand it correctly, KB2618096 updates mrxsmb20.sys to version 6.1.7601.21822 and KB2618190 updates srv2.sys to 6.1.7601.21822. 
I have searched those files on the new deskops, i have found that the version of mrxsmb20.sys is 6.1.7601.23455 and the version of srv2.sys is 6.1.7601.23542. This files are newer! The file mrxsmb20.sys has been updated by the June 2016 Rollup KB3161608
and the file srv2.sys has been updated by KB3161561.
My question is, are this hotfixes still actual? Can i skip them? Or does these hotfixes do more than just update a .sys file?

  I've begun managing a computer that doesn't seem to have updated recently, and fails to install new updates. I've been able to identify that the windows update agent on this computer is out of date, but I am unable to update the agent. The installation
fails, claiming that "This update is not applicable to this computer." The knowledge base articles for these windows update agent updates only list Windows 7 SP1 as a prerequisite, but the system control panel shows that Service Pack 1 is installed.
  The WUA version on this computer is 7.6.7600.256. From what I've been able to find, this version of the windows update agent is pre Service pack 1. It may be that the newer updates are reporting non-applicable because of this, but that doesn't point
me toward a resolution path, as I am unable to install any Windows Update agent post SP1. Any ideas where I should go here?

Can anyone confirm before I broach the Domain Admins about extending AD Schema..

Currently I have a laptop with TPM 2.0 that is required to run Windows 7 x64. In order for 7 to identify TPM 2.0 in device manager I have had to install KB2920188. With the hotfix employed I cannot initialize the TPM chip as it errors
with "There is no such object on the server" and accompanied by "Failed to backup TPM Owner Authorization information to ADDS Error: 0x80072030" in evntvwr. (We employ the GPO to store all bitlocker information against the object
in ADDS.)

Researching this further I have come across this page
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt431885(v=vs.85).aspx where it explains about extending AD Schema to support TPM 2.0 however it says it only applies to Windows 10.

Our Domain Admin is somewhat protective of there AD and defend there territory fiercely! Can anyone confirm if the above schema extension is also required for Windows 7 if you apply the above hotfix

hi. i would like to ask if there is a way for me to check if my system is working just fine?

bec a month ago i uninstalled avg spyware because it already expired. together with it the quarantine files have also been removed. then the following day when i opened my computer a pop up msg said that some items frm my computer have been deleted and the system may not wrk normally. then the message said that i should go to www.regfixit.com. i went to the site and was about to do the system check when i got second thoughts that this might be a spyware or something so i jst ignore it. didnt do anythng.

then last week i suddenly started to receive some alerts that my computer will have to restart because new updates are installed and needs to restart to finish the installation. then today it happend again. then alert that my computer is running out of space has been popping up to. so i decided to go to add remove program to delete some of the unused programs to free up the space then i noticed that there have been lots (maybe 10) of SECURITY UPDATE FOR WINDOWS XP (K-------) that are there. i removed them. then there's also WINDOWS XP HOTFIX- KB282010. WINDOWS XP HOTFIX- 835732, 841356, 842773. i didnt remove these since it said that other programs have been using it too. if i removed it the programs myt not wrk normally. and one of the programs is the symantec norton antivirus.

A:RESOLVED: Windows Xp Hotfix

Hi greenphoenix..

you were right to ignore any scans and such from regfixit.com as it is considered as 'rogueware' - it is designed into scaring people into paying for software which it may not need.

As for the rest...it seems that you may have uninstalled some required Windows Updates so I advise visiting the Microsoft Update site ASAP and then check for any available updates. They are important as they patch up potentila security holes in the OS. The Windows Installer 3.1 is fine..you need that to install the updates so you can leave that one...you can also leave the other update KB898461 as thats fine.

The reason why you may not have seen all these things before in add/remove programs as you need to have the 'show updates' check box at the top checked to reveal them so perhaps you have recently accidently checked that box to reveal the updates???

I'm looking for some kind of "official" Microsoft documentation or TechNet article explaining the proper process for injecting Windows Updates / Hotfixes into a Windows WIM image to allow me to deploy a version of windows that already has all (or at least

Does anyone know if such a document exists? Or perhaps someone from Microsoft can respond to this post with some well documented steps on how I would accomplish this?

A:Windows Update / Hotfix Injection into Windows 7 WIM image for Deployment

WSUS Offline Tool

Download the WSUS Offline Tool and extract to another working directory, e.g. "C:\wsusoffline"
Run the "UpdateGenerator.exe" tool.
Select the version of Windows you wish to update, e.g. "x64 Global" under the Windows 7 category.
Optionally select to use a WSUS server on your local network with the "WSUS..." button.

Press the "Start" button. A command window will appear displaying the progress of the utility. The updates are downloaded to the "./client/w61-x64/glb" directory within the "wsusoffline"
The Windows 7 Media

Download the Windows Automated Installation Kit for Windows 7 and
install. This will allow you to obtain the "DISM.exe" command line utility that is needed.
Extract all files from the Windows 7 media. Store these files in a working directory, e.g. "C:\Win7_x64_Ent_Source"
Create a temp directory that will be used to mount the WIM image to in order to manipulate the files, e.g. "C:\Win7_x64_Ent_WIM"
Open an elevated command prompt.
Run the follow command to mount the WIM file:

dism /mount-wim /wimfile:C:\Win7_x64_Ent_Source\sources\install.wim /mountdir:C:\Win7_x64_Ent_WIM /index:1

Apparently after a major update such as XP SP2 to SP3, it breaks the .NET Framework ver 1 or 1.5. Microsoft FIXIT has the hotfix for IE, but cannot run without .NET Framework 2.0 or later. Looking at another machine, it appears that each version of .NET framework builds upon the previous version. Ver 3.5 is the most current stable release. (4 is out there for customers to test, ha ha). IExplorer opens, but stays blank in the address bar with no error messages, just a blank where a link would display. The bad guys have us in a pickle. I saw a fix for .NET Framework ver.1 that gets broken after update, but my notepad files w/that link are now blank. I ran a MiniToolbox report, and it showed a bunch of users that I did not define. I have two desktops, both on XP. Last night I was trying to download Bleeping's malware fighters on the e-Machine that has been updated all along, but McAfee shows 14 trojans and reports all is well. Tonight I am working on the HP machine that was recently upgraded to SP3 (Thank you, Sightless). I thought I posted the command to fix .NET Framework 1.n but cannot find it today.

I then went and tried to manually apply the correct version (Windows 7 64 bit, IE9) of the update (Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 9 in Windows 7 x64 Edition (KB2559049)) but the update would not run, giving the message ?This update is not applicable to your computer?.

Hello, i updated my windows with the 'hotfix 2' and i ran into the problem after restarting my cmoputer. Usually when i turn on my comptuer, it'll start loading the drive specifications etc... in the beginning and it'll go in to the login screen. Well windows reads the drive specifications and at the part where it's supposed to go the login screen, there is a line that streaks through the screen and it becomes a blank screen (all black). Is anyone familiar with this problem, if so your help will be greatly appreciated.

to fix. I was not able to install the hotfix on Win7 X64 probably because my ole32.dll version(6.1.7601.23889) is higher than the one in hotfix. Can anyone tell me how to solve this issue?

Recently I went to apply a hotfix on my PC from Microsoft, or at least that's where I thought it was from. I had to provide an email address and "Microsoft" emailed me a link to a zip file that was really an exe file that had a password.

Is this normal, for Microsoft hotfixes to have passwords and come in this form, or is this spyware? The download URL looked valid and appeared to lead back to a Microsoft site. Is this safe you think?

Hello, i updated my windows with the 'hotfix 2' and i ran into the problem after restarting my cmoputer. Usually when i turn on my comptuer, it'll start loading the drive specifications etc... in the beginning and it'll go in to the login screen. Well windows reads the drive specifications and at the part where it's supposed to go the login screen, there is a line that streaks through the screen and it becomes a blank screen (all black). Is anyone familiar with this problem, if so your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time...

One of the more annoying bugs that seemed to last forever in Win7 is that IE9 wouldn't be trained to open to full size by dragging it there and then clicking the middle Maximize button a few times.

It seems this was hotfixed somewhere along the line but now it's happening again on my fresh installs.

Does anyone know which Update fixed this, if any? Until then I'm again stuck with installing Autosizer app to set default size via System tray.

A:Which hotfix causes IE9 windows to open full page?

Hi Greg!

I guess I'm just one of the lucky ones, when I upgraded from IE8 to IE9 and I opened IE9 the first time, it filled my window.

Then the very next thing I did was to maximize it with the button in the upper right corner. Ever since then its opened that way and my RUN property settings on both IE9, and IE9 x64 are set to Normal. (Knock on wood)

I have gone over my Windows updates and except for cumulative security for IE I haven't found any hotfixes.

I have looked all over the internet and the consensus is that it has to be done manually, there are no updates or hotfixes to change this quirk in appearance.

Here is the best I have found and they are all variations of the same theme, and should work to force IE to memorize the size setting on all IE's from 6 to 10.

Using the re-sizer arrows.Open IE
Forget about the Maximizer button in the upper right corner!
Open a link on the page/tab and re-size it.
Open a second page/tab from a link on that one, re-size it
Close the first one with the red X.
Close the second with the red X
Close IE with the red X.
Some suggest holding down the Ctrl button while using the red X.
Open IE and it should open maximized.
Some users report that this still doesn't work.
