Outlook 2016 hangs at "processing" after Windows 7 update, Feb 9, 2016

Q: Outlook 2016 hangs at "processing" after Windows 7 update, Feb 9, 2016

"Patch Tuesday" broke our install of Outlook 365. It was working fine on Monday and on Tuesday it was hanging on "Processing." So I restored back to the last restore point before the update and it worked great after that. Yesterday it re-installed the updates, and again Outlook didn't load. Restoring again today "fixed" it. Now it wants to update again, so I will disable updates until the problem is fixed. I don't know which particular "patch" is causing the problem; there were about 22 of them that installed.

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2016 hangs at "processing" after Windows 7 update, Feb 9, 2016

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.)

My computer that had been running the Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium since early 2009 had become an appliance:  It worked every time it was turned on and it handled every network transaction that came through my DSL line.  I had set the "Windows
Update" program to check for updates periodically, every month or so, and then to inform me when ever any update was available.  I could tell when the "Windows Update" program had been checking for updates, as the CPU usage went up to 100
percent with the used memory amount "sawtoothed" up and down for about 15 to 20 minutes.   The "Windows Update" then would tell me about the available updates and it would ask whether it should load any of those. 

This  worked until about January 2016.  At that time, the "Windows Update" CPU usage would stay at 100 percent for more than an hour.  After that, it gradually got worse:  Around June 2016, it held the CPU at 100 percent usage
for about 14 hours.  In August 2016, the CPU is held at 100 percent usage by the "Windows Update" for more than 45 hours with no end in sight.  It did find some updates to load, but it would not load them as the CPU had no time to do that. 

"Windows Update" is currently holding the CPU at 100 percent load  this every time the machine is booted up until all of the updates are loaded and it can not do this as the C... Read more

Hey everyone,

Too add some background I finished building my PC two days ago, the 17th of Jan so I wonder why it still needed updates after first booting . The problem is that a couple minutes after I got the some notifications for a windows update saying it is a needed update so I decided I would let it update the first time also I believe some updates from 2013 and 2014 were included among them. The first time I try the update it seems to be successful until at 99% of the update completion the screen went black,automatically restarted the system with the MSI bios options then went straight to a "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause." prompt at the top with the Recovery option and the start windows normally option. Obviously starting the windows normally didn't work, so I tried the recovery option of automatically "repairing" which didn't properly work for some reason, even though it allowed me to access my account again some files were deleted like Uplay and Steam and some of my games though it left the desktop shortcuts. I thought hey, maybe it would work a second time so I let it update again and BOOM the same problem again. I googled other solutions beside the "automatic repair" option so I tried pressing all of F8-F12 and none of them showed me to the advance boot options menu, so I decided to go with the recovery options again and then again it deleted my redownloaded Uplay and Steam and then some documents I ...

I wonder if there's a solution to this issue.....I have many docs/forms (this is mainly literary/author stuff), where I'd like to change "her" to "him." For example, a document might be referring to a female character throughout (not a NAME, just "her.") Doing this as a straight find/replace obviously results in tons of words like "fathim," "eithim," mothim" etc. Is there a neat, clever way to accomplish this?
 

A:MS Word 2016: can you switch "her" and "him" in a long doc?

The MS-Word 2016 Replace dialog box has a "More >>" button. Clicking it expands the box to show several options including to only find whole words.

You will need to be cautioous if you first try to replace all the "his" with "her" and then replce all the "her" with "his". You'll end up with all "his" Something like first replacing all the "his" with "hhiiss", then replacing all the "her" with "his", and finally replacing all the "hhiiss" with "her" should keep things straight.

It also would not hurt to make a backup copy of the original in case the swap does not go as desired.

According to all sources that I could find on-line, it appears that rules are part of pst file.

However, this does not happening in my case.

I use outlook 2016 (part of MS office 2016) and have several accounts linked with this ? From my ISP (POP), Hotmail, yahoo, Gmail. I have rules only for account from my ISP.

Recently I deleted my Hotmail account, removed it from my outlook, deleted associated ost file. Then I had second thought and re-activated this hotmal account the following day. Added this to my outlook. To my surprise all rules vanished. Not a single rule remained. I did NOT have any rules setup for Hotmail account. Even column details for message folders (part of setting) got changed.

I decided to check further. Copied my pst files to another computer which had same version of outlook installed and has exactly the same setup.

Now I added some rules on my 1st computer. Checked the 2nd computer. The same rule appeared there. That means pst file does not contain rules.

So, Where are they?

Hope someone can help me. I am lost!!

Panda and Avast are the lightest while Bitdefender can be heavy.

All 3 offer excellent protection (Avast requires tweaking; Bitdefender and Panda works out of the box), while Bitdefender is mainly known for its detection rate (signatures).

Try the 3 of them (trial versions, not the 6 months) and see which one you prefer.

In terms of UI, all 3 are user friendly.

This is an on-going problem and I am at my wits end.

What I have: Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, 64bit, no additional software installed since I could never get past the update issue.

The symptom: went attempting to run windows update it says "searching for updates". It never stops "searching for updates" until I close or end the program. I have let it run for 2 days straight.

What I have tried:
1. Did the "clear the cache" fix, (stopped BITS and windows update services, deleted SoftwareDistribution folder, then restarted), no change
2. Attempted to install updates manually, it hangs on "searching for updates on this computer".

3. Even when trying to install the system update readiness tool does not work.

Any suggestions are welcome.

After restarting, a window came up to upgrade the browser from IE 10 to IE 11. I did so, then ran Windows Updates again to check for security updates to IE 11. Stuck in an endless loop again.
I reset the Windows Components with FIXIT 971058. This resolved two errors: Reset Windows Update Data Store (Root Cause) and Service Registration Missing or Corrupt. Still stuck in a loop.
I installed the latest version of the Windows Update Agent and rebooted. Still no joy. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I looked over the contents of the CBS.log before coming to this forum. Something is definitely wrong, but I can't make heads or tails of it.
Here's the link: https://1drv.ms/t/s!AiuNs_2Ik1SigQsc8snLSRVeKcNM

Hi everybody. I have a problem with Windows Update. It just permanently hangs on the message, "Checking for the latest updates for your computer . . ." I'm not sure what to do about this.

I've tried a few things, and they haven't worked. so any help would be very welcome.

I have checked the settings on the BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) and I also checked the Automatic Updates service. It doesn't appear that anything is wrong with these or the settings are off. I deleted the catroot2 folder in system32, but that didn't fix it either. (I made a backup. No worries.)

I'm using Windows XP with SP2 installed. I have Internet Explorer 7 installed, and all the windows update sites are added in the trusted websites list.

So, what do I do?

---------------------------------------

Okay, I think this was fixed after I installed Windows Genuine Advantage tools. hmm....
 

A:Windows Update Hangs - Stuck "Checking"

I too experienced this problem. After contacting tech support for Windows Update they gave me several things to try. Then the problem progressed to offering the high priority updates which I said to download and install. Well the update process froze at "Preparing to Download". Then I made a further discovery that if I let the download process run for 10 to 15 minutes and then abort it with the Task Manager and then return to Windows Update, and select "Custom" the updates had downloaded and were ready to install.

Through such convoluted actions I was finally able to bring my system up to date.

BTW, during this time Automatic Updates never offered an update.

Hi everyone, I think I've got a fairly tricky problem here.
I just finished installing Windows 7 Pro (SP1 included) x64 on my laptop. Pretty much the first thing I did was go to check for updates. This was taking forever, and upon looking at the resource monitor, it appears that svchost (you can just which services
it's hosting) was hung at %50, or one CPU core. No HDD activity to speak of, just a process spinning its wheels.
I've tried multiple troubleshooting steps, from running the Update readiness tool (Which didn't find anything wrong), resetting windows update using multiple tools, running an SFC (which said the system was in perfect condition), and of course rebooting
several times in between.
Checking the CBS log file, there are many lines reading "Failed to internally open package. [HRESULT = 0x800F0805 - CBS_E_INVALID_PACKAGE]". Windows Update appears to soldier on past that however, where it apparently reads out its last cached package
(successfully it would seem) then stop dead. When I net stop wuauserv, the log seems to mention TrustedInstaller a few times, then that's about all the interesting information I can gather.
The WindowsUpdate.log file is not terribly helpful either; just before the hang it says "PT: Synchronizing extended update info", then it lists off a ServiceId and Server URL. Nothing after that!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

I have a Toshiba r700-181 (PT310E) work laptop. It is running Windows 7 x64 Enterprise.

It has one 4GB stick of ram which is PC3 10600. Windows works fine with this.

I have obtained a 4GB stick of ram which is PC3 12800. With just this one in, Windows works fine.

However, if I have BOTH sticks put in, the BIOS recognises that there is 8GB installed, but Windows fails to boot.

It gets stuck at the "Starting Windows" screen. If I restart it asks me if I want to start windows normally or to run the Windows repair. If I try that I get the message: "Error: 0xc0000225. The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible."

I tried using a Windows 7 System Restore disc but that doesnt work...

If I try either of the sticks in the laptop one at a time, then Windows 7 boots up fine.

Is this just down to the laptop not being compatible with the mixture of speeds? I thought that if they were mixed it would just use the lower speed by default?

So confused

About one month ago, a new problem surfaced:

Most times when I try to "Save As" a document and the application calls Windows Explorer for me to Browse where to save the file, it hangs for upwards of 60 seconds. The Browse window appears, but then I get a "spinning circular cursor" for 45-60 seconds until I can do anything. This occurs in all applications from MSExcel through Internet Explorer.

The system never completely crashes, but there is always this 60 second lag now.

The lag also occurs when I try to open a document...and to a less extent, but sometimes, when I simply open Windows Explorer (Windows Explorer is inconsistent as to whether it will give me a lag...sometimes it does work fine).

I have previously tried posting in the malware forum. I had picked something up they found...and cleaned it out, but that seems to have been completely unrelated to this as it was a virus redirecting my Google searches.

Can anyone help?

After having installed the Windows 7 04/2016 updates today, I found that I couldn't start Firefox anymore - it just hangs and uses up 1 core. Then I tried IE - hangs and eats up another core. Same for Chrome and Opera. Then I began to suspect EMET and started
Word 2010, Adobe Reader, Thunderbird, WL Mail - all the same. Applications not opted into EMET continued to work.
I then tried to deactivate EMET's mitigations one by one and found that I had to disable "EAF" mitigation to use my apps again.

(I didn't yet try to find out which of the updates is the root of this by uninstalling 1 by 1, since WU took so long (hours) to find updates _at all_ that I haven't yet dared... Maybe later I'll try to install the updates manually on another machine and
see if I find sth.)
Is it just me who's seeing this?

System: 32bit Windows 7 Enterprise, EMET 5.5, all updates from WU (except MSRT) installed.

I understand its Free vs Paid product comparision but anyway
 

A:F-Secure Internet Security 2016 vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016

If a security soft ranks amongst the top performing AVs, it won't matter much if it does function correctly or causes problems on your specific system.

From lab test results F-Secure has an edge over Panda during testing the past few years in terms of detection (although higher false positives).

From users, it seems more prefer Panda - which is one of Neil Rubenking's (PCMag) favs (that don't mean much - but that is just my opinion).

I'd say, in terms of overall protection, Panda has a slight edge; it might protect your system in a few instances that F-Secure will not.

When Outlook Express is opened, every e-mail that was sent "return reciept requested" causes Outlook Express to try to send a return receipt, which then fails resulting in an error message.

OE ignores all changes to the "return receipt" functions and continues to try to send them even before they are opened; when the mouse hovers over the particular e-mail.

A recent malware infection (which has been removed) caused a change in the registry and turned off Task Manager (which has been corrected). I suspect the problem with OE is also a registry issue, but cannot Google any information on this specific function or issue.

Two questions:

1. Is there a registry entry that controls the fuction of OE's "return receipt" function ?

2. If OE is uninstalled & reinstalled, will the stored e-mails be lost ?

An aggravating factor is that sbcglobal does not have a configuration setting to prevent duplicate e-mails from being downloaded and a recent change to the e-mail account by sbcglobal has resulted in the messages being duplicated 2 and 3 times in OE, and it is attempting to download another 4000 ( ! ) more, which will also all be duplicates.

This "return receipt" problem is preventing the ability to delete the duplicate & unwanted e-mails, so OE's functionality is reduced to nil.

Also, is there a static limit to the number of messages that OE can store & manage ?

When trying to update with Windows update, i get a spontaneous reboot or a bluescreen-crash.
The filename "lzx32.sys" is mentioned.

The updates i'm trying to install are the following (roughly translated from norwegian):
"Update for Windows Media Format 11 SDK for Windows XP (KB939399)"
"Windows Tool for removal of dangerous software - march 2007 (KB890830)"
Other than that, i believe i have all other windows-updates.

I do however recall there beeing a third update on the list when i started the installation for the first time.
After the third or forth spontanous restart/bluscreen, when i figured something was wrong, it has disappeared from the list.
I do not know if it actually got installed or not.

I've been following the 5-steps-before-posting as good as possible.
From my normal startup programs msn-messenger and daemon-tools were shutted down before the dss-scan.
Here are the three logs (panda-activescan, dss-main and dss-extra attached):
PS: note that the "extra.txt" is from the first scan, which was done abit earlier than my last scan where the pasted "main.txt" is from.
This is because i was unable to get a fresh "extra.txt" from the last scan (no minimized window at all).
OK, here we go now:
