One Important Windows Update Failed

Q: One Important Windows Update Failed

Hello Forum,

One of my Windows updates (one of nine) failed earlier, but when I opened up my Update window again to see if I could retry, it doesn't give you the option to do it (first time in five years with this computer it has happened - ALL my updates have been successful). It shows the failed update in the Update History, but does not give you the option to install it again. How can I try to install that update again even though I can't locate the option to do it? Thank you.

Preferred Solution: One Important Windows Update Failed

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was doing a clean install and during the updates, I had one, KB2965788, that failed to install and hasn't reappeared for a second attempt.

I'm running Win 7 Pro x64. The error code is WindowsUpdate_80070308.

I'm not sure if this update is required for my system configuration or if there is some issue that needs to be detected and resolved.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello all

When executing Windows Update, I experienced that one important update is not automatically selected to download and install.


I like to understand why this is?

Also I like to understand if I should always install all important updates, even the ones not by default selected?

In this example, the not selected update refers to MS09-054 security update. Is this a manual installed security update?
Does it not apply to me?

Thanks a lot in advance!

A:Windows Update, important update not selected

Not all users experience the issue that this update resolves. MS is providing you the oportunity to use the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" logic.

I applied the update even though I have no evidence that I need it. Yet.

Some updates will adversely affect some users. Not applying updates may adversely affect you.

What can you do? My advice - apply all updates. Unless you have a good reason not to.

Hello,
I'am downloading very important files but I'm afraid that my computer might switch off because windows update gave me a notice that the computer will switch off after an update and the maximum amount of time you can postpone the computer to switch off is 4 hours (That's what I done). I will not be able to use the computer for more than 4 hours.
So this is what I did>> I think I turned windows update off by choosing the option of 'Never check for update (not recommended).

Now the question is> Will my computer switch off within 4 hours after I leave it?
If it will, then how can I make it not switch off.

PLEASE NOTE: The download is NOT resumable.
EDIT: I'm using Windows 7.

Thank you for reading.

A:[IMPORTANT] Windows Update

In my experience if you are still using the computer at the end of that 4 hours it will give you another warning and you will be able to postpone it again for another 4 hours. Then repeat process until the download is done. I am not sure if turning updates off will have stopped the countdown.

DO NOT let windows update dl and instal drivers for hardware devices such as video cards, sound cards automatically. If it detects an update for a device, go download it from the manufacturers website directly, (nvidea users, nvidea has a nice little auto-detect feature on their site so you cant get the wrong driver). only let windows update dl and install updates for microsoft products only.

Hi,

I have a problem with updates that try to install every time PC restart.
They give me everytime error code 80070490 and if I try to press Try again then give me error code 8024AFFF.
I try to solve the problem with Microsoft FixIt, then update was installed succesfully, but after restart they try to install it again (everytime the same update) and give the same error.

I found some solution on the net that not work for me:
1. Windows Update error 80070490
2. Error code 0x80070490 when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates
3. Code Error 80070490 checking for Windows Updates - Microsoft Community

I not use first option becouse I not have original DVD, I have a PC with preinstalled system Windows 7 Home Premium.

Anyone have any ideo how to solve this problem?

A:Many failed update on history windows failed to configure startup

Hello smeraldan and welcome to Seven Forums.

My usual disclaimer: I'm not an expert at anything. Sometimes malware can prevent Windows Updates from installing. Run a full scan with your personal anti-malware suite. Then use the free Malwarebytes to run another full scan. (No anti-malware product is 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it.)

Malwarebytes

Another possible problem is if system files became damaged or corrupt. I'd run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You could also try running the System Update Readiness Tool if you haven't already done so.

System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008

Try installing the updates again, but this time just do a few at a time (maybe only 5 or so.) Keep track of the KB numbers. Start with the critical updates, then the important, and save the optional for last. If a group of 5 installs OK go on to the next group. If any group fails to install you'll know which group to uninstall. Try installing just one update at a time. If they install OK go on to the next group. Otherwise just ignore the problem update(s) for the time being and continue installing in groups of 5.

I don't use Skype. I uninstalled it. Windows Update keeps sending updates and marking them as 'important.' If I run the update I find I need to uninstall the program again.

I'd like reassurance that I can safely ignore these updates.

It makes sense to me, but software has gotten complex enough that I want to be sure that this update only updates Skype for Windows and that failure to implement it does not leave a gaping hole in Windows 7.

Hi there,
I have a hard drive which is failing. It has some very important data on it and the backup on my external drive has vanished.

I am trying to run HDRegen to give it a lease of life wnough to get the data off it. However when I run this or most other programs that are ona bootable CD, it just locks up.
What can I do? I am really desprate to get this data back.

If I booted HDRegen onto a working drive, and then run it scanning the broken drive, would that maybe work?
Please help.
Any adivice would really be apreciated!
Many thanks

I would like to delete the failed updates list in Windows 7 Update.  I have done this in the past but forget exactly the process.
 
I think you go to Windows Folder-Software Distribution.  After deleting everyhting in the folder., i think you are to restart the computer.  Once finished the list of updates in Windows Update will be cleared. 
 
Please correct if I am wrong.  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

A:Failed Updates in Windows Update. Want to clear update list?

This is the way I suggest :
 
Go to start > type in cmd > right click at cmd.exe > Run as Administrator.
 
Type in "net stop WuAuServ" without quotes > hit enter.
 
Type in "start %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore" without quotes > hit enter. A folder will come up. Don't close that black window.
 
Rename file "DataStore" to "DataStoreold" without quotes.
 
Go to that black screen, Type in "net Start WuAuServ" without quotes > hit Enter. After it finished you can close it.
 
Now your Windows Update logs will now cleared.
 
Thank you.

Well; one thing i can tell ya is that when it says cannot update while files in are in use basically means you need to restart your system. Try restarting and see what happens. It may tell you either when the system is in the process of restarting; that its configuring updates. Do not do a hard power down as that can cause even more issues while its updating.

A:there's a lot of failed update on windows update history?

You don't delete failed updates - it just means that they didn't install at that attempt (possibly your connection got broken)
Go back to Windows Update again, check for updates again, and install ONLY the Security updates for Windows itself (not .NET, or IE etc.) , then go back and do the rest of the updates for Windows, - then do IE, and lastly do the .NET updates.

A:Any way to hide "you have hidden important updates" WGA nag banner in Windows Update?

Description of Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA)

It's pretty basic. The core of it is, they are a company that sells computer Operating System software and don't want to be ripped off. And to prevent rip-offs from updating beneficial security and other support they provide FREE, they require you run the WGA.

That isn't unreasonable.

Don't like it? Get Linux or whatever.

My OS is Windows XP Pro, SP3. I attempted to download and install the latest batch of updates that came down a few days ago, and all appeared to install OK with the exception of the NET Framework 1.1 SP1 security update. Dialog box simply stated that the update was not installed. I looked at my updates in Add/Remove software, and noticed that Net Framework 1.1 SP1 did not even appear on the list. I went to the Microsoft page and downloaded SP1 and tried to install it, thinking that the security update might not install if SP1 was not there to begin with. However, when I attempted to run SP1 installation, I told me that SP1 was already installed. I'm not sure why I can't see SP1 in the updates list. Looking for some instruction on where to go from here. Thanks! John.

Recently I've been getting a consistent problem with a update from Windows 7 a few weeks ago - my computer will habitually download the update every time I turn my PC on - and tells me that I have to reboot for it to install, OK - that's fine. I do this and when my computer reboots it gets to about the 97% mark and tells me it has failed to install the update - moves on to removing it and rebooting again to complete the removal process - and after all this it gets back to my log in screen, I log in, it downloads the update again and the process never ends.

Is this a common issue? I would truly appreciate some help here.

I have a new laptop LG with Vista business.

My problem is I cannot install the two latest Microsoft updates:
one of them is service pack2, the error found is: kode64C
and the other is an accumulated security update for IE7., error called: kode 80080100

Both are from August 14, 2007.

I have tried doing this update several times in the last days.

I made sure I had my antivirus turned off while I tried to do the updates.

Any idea of what I could do?
Thanks!

Hi Askeladden2007, welcome to TSF..

I wasn't aware Microsoft had officially released a service pack for Vista as yet? Where are you downloading this from?

It will do some changes but mind you choose UPGRADE it will re do your windows and allow you to install sp 1 or other updates

Well guys, I have had a similar problem since last September. Windows Update fails every time. Now it says I need to update Windows Update itself but that update fails as well. If I run update I get a BSOD during the welcome screen. Then I have to go into safe mode and do a sys restore. I have even had to do a complete image restore a couple times to get my pc to go into windows. Needless to say....I am WAY behind on keeping Windows updated.

I decided to do a Windows Update as it was suggested it could help as I can't now watch videos that have been posted in Facebook. I don't normally do that as it appears to be updating automatically. It wouldn't update so I checked the update history and found that a particular update had been failing to update since 2011! I would appreciate advice as to why it isn't updating and how I can get it to update. The update is Windows 7 Service Pack 1 for x64-based Systems (KB976932) Error details: Code 80073712. When I check the error details it doesn't give an error code of 80073712 so I can't find out what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

Every time I attempt to do a Windows update it says failed, I'm trying to install the Windows Installer 3.1 and it keeps saying it fails. Also, when I shutdown the computer and let the updates install that way it just says "Installing update 1 of 8..." and stays there for a minute then shutdown without installing anything.

Is there a way to fix this? Also, could I download the WIndows Installer 3.1 .exe from Microsoft without using the auto update tool? Or how can I delete previously downloaded updates that fail to install?

Any help will be appreciated, this is one of the most annoying problems I've had with Windows.

I am not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to computer... I will admit that. But when my computer says "An update is ready" and I say ok little computer please update, it goes through all it's stuff only to say "UPDATE FAILED". I don't know why, every time before this it said update it would normally update.
These updates are KB954478 & KB953404. If I could trust some one to remote show me how to fix this so I could learn would be great.

Also since my computer started acting all crazy, when I reduce the window what ever which one it may be (Outlook, Internet) it streams down. The sides first and then the middle. maybe it's nothing but it never done this before..

If there is anyone out there who can assist me I would greatly appreciate to the fullest!

Should I have the Firewall and AVG disabled, during the D/L ?

Is there another common reason, At first it registered that the first two or three were downloaded, etc.

Then this morning after 8 hours it was stalling doing nothing so I clicked cancel after reading that some of them failed, then going to the IE Windows Update page, all 15 had failed ?

How long did you wait so far? I'd recommend to let it load.. it could take a while but it's the safest way to regain access to your system. Start it before you go to sleep and check it in the morning again.

If it's a new system, don't install to many updates at once..

Thanks,

Everytime I start the Internet the Automatic Updates notification bubble appears asking me to update my computer to include KB824105. I have done this about 10 times and installed the file yet each time it asks me again! How do I make it install properly?

Thanks.

Welcome
You may not want to hear this, but the solution to your problem is to manual upadate and do a few at a tome.
Since the updates require a restart, when there are many conflict can and do occur.

These are the steps of the loop:
1) My PC downloads this update automatically in the background. I have no option to stop my PC from downloading it.
2) I am forced to install this update. There is no option for me to shut down/restart without having to install the update.
3) During the restart, I get a notification that my PC was unable to complete the update and hence the changes are rolled back and the whole process starts again.

This thing has been going on for days, wasting my time and getting on my nerves.

Why is Microsoft so dumb?
A) If at all my PC has downloaded an update, why don't they save it somewhere on my PC till the update process is successfully complete instead of downloading it again and again wasting my bandwidth?
B) Why have they not given options to opt out of (downloading/installing) troublesome updates like this?
C) Is there a solution to this issue?

Thanks!

Hi Bradex and welcome to Tenforums.
Frustrating, I know...

Please try running sfc /scannow to check the health of your system files. We're looking for "no integrity violations found" as the result. If it does find errors, please reboot and run it again - it could be run 3x or more until things are sorted. Then try a clean boot, and see if the update will install that way.

If you want to wait it out for a while, there are a couple things you can do - but these disable WU completely, and I wouldn't recommend leaving things this way:
Windows Update Automatic Updates - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
Options 1&2 can be done only on a W10Pro system, while Option #5 can be done on both Home and Pro.

Hope that helps!

Edit: Here's another option to show/hide updates (hidden updates will not install):
Windows Updates - Hide or Show in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
Not sure if you need to get the update installed first, then uninstall it and hide it (haven't had to do this myself yet). I think, as long as it's waiting in the wings, you can hide it.

Hello -Apart from being a server issue with the 4 computers (ever tried on another download / modem / router) -Now can you please tell me the settings for updates, they will be listed as below >>1. Install updates automatically 2. Download updates, but let me choose whether to install them3. Check for updates, but let me choose whether to download and install them4. Never check for updates (not recommended)Using option 1 you hope that the system / server is not too busy and just install whenever they are availableUsing option 2 you allow the updates to be installed at a time of your choiceUsing option 3 you get to see all updates, and can only select one at a time if you chooseUsing option 4 you would need to manually go to Windows site and seek any available updatesWhen you get Updates Failed do you ever get an error number (there usually is one) -Thank You -

Hi everyone

I have Windows XP Service Pack 2.
I've just had a new motherboard installed and now I can't install Windows updates.

I decided to uninstal Service Pack 2 but it no longer appears in my ADD/REMOVE programs window so I can no longer uninstall it.

I've tried finding the reason for failure of updates on the Micrososft website but it's like looking for a needle in a haystack.
Any help gratefully received.
Anne

PLEASE IGNORE Initially posted in the wrong area plenty of other posts already on this issue so I'll just watch them Thanks all Hi I'm running WinVista -bit with all the service packs It's never given me a problem until just now Yesterday I got the little update icon in my notification area so when I had a free moment I checked what was being offered and elected to install nearly all or so of them I let the process disappear into the background and went along working Later I noticed that the icon hadn't budged or changed so I clicked on it only to find that MB out of the MB had been downloaded I let it sit there for the rest of the day but nothing ever happened So I aborted the update figuring I'd try it the next day Today the icon was still in the tray and I clicked on it to failed, stuck. Update Windows now let it start the download process again It just sits there but nothing is being downloaded I went into Task Windows Update failed, now stuck. Manager and stopped the update utility but within seconds or so it restarted automatically still looking as if it wants to do an update but nothing is being downloaded I should say however that updates to Microsoft Security Essentials are evidently coming in properly there's one for yesterday and for today but maybe that's a separate process The list of or so updates that Vista indicated yesterday should be installed is nowhere to be found So what does one do in this instance Is there a way to stop this service maybe even purge it of whatever it thinks it wants to do and then do a manual update restart Thanks
