Q: Windows Updates showing never been updated message

Please can someone offer some help and assistance As the title says I'm having an issue with Windows Update for Windows -Bit Home Premium Edition Basically this is my Dad's laptop which he mentioned to me that he was having an issue when trying to Shutdown the laptop - that it was constantly showing an update and take an absolute age to close down I ran an aanti-virus which came out clear I did a little research on the web and found that for the hanging update some guidance updated message been showing Updates Windows never to stop update in the in services msc and to delete 'Software Distribution' folder and deleted it and then restarted the service for the folder to be replicated So I expected Windows Updates showing never been updated message to see check for updates and updates to installed to say 'Never' However this was a couple of weeks back and my PC running on Windows had received an update in between so I expected the laptop to have also received one too I spoke to my Dad said his browser Internet Explorer was requesting a update for various sites This is when I went back to take a look on to the Windows Update screens both messages still saying 'Never' When trying to download the browser getting messages saying from Microsoft site saying some SP's and such is missing and when I have tried to manually make the Windows Update check for updates it just sits there checking for updates for hours and hours until you end up powering down the laptop My question would be how remedy this or reverse this - so to carry on with updates periodically as necessary and to update the browser too Or is there a known fix I have a tried Knowledge Base - KB that is suppose to help with slow updates but still showing the same message Apologies for the long message I just wanted to make sure I could give as much detail as necessary Also services msc for Windows what is the default Startuptype setting for Windows updates so far it has been set to 'Automatic' and still is Thanks

Preferred Solution: Windows Updates showing never been updated message

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

A: Windows Updates showing never been updated message

Still on IE8, definately means 200+ updates (including update to IE11).
Also from what you said hes still on W7 not W7 SP1.

Any chance you/he can run the MXdiag tool from here, and post the results

Also would be handy to know what his Make/model of comp is and any AntiVirus .

I keep getting the "NTVDM CPU has encountered and illegal instruction" every time windows update tries to run (wuauclt.exe) and updates won't install. This started after the new Windows UPdate Agent was installed around 6/14. No updates have installed since then, I just get the popup errors. I run several scans with Malwarebytes, Spybot, AVG and nothin was found. I ran the Fixit tool from MS and it indicated that there was a problem with windows update agent and the problem was fixed, but it still doesn't work. I'd love to reinstall windows update agent, but windows won't let me. Even the \wuforce command won't force a reinstall. Can anyone have any ideas?

A:updates won't install after windows update agent updated

Welcome to the forums blabay,

*Reset windows update settings by following this tutorial

*Uninstall Spybot & AVG replace with MSE do a full scan to get rid any virus

I have just installed the Windows Anniversary Edition to my HP Pavilion computer and on my HP Pavilion laptop but when I went to check for the Windows Updates under the Settings folder, the message comes up that there are updates and the fuel gauge is displayed but no install takes place (this happens on both computers). Any suggestions for a fix?

I don't know which specific updated but I managed to isolate the problem to my updates st let me say that I went from Windows bit to Windows bit using custom install and keeping Windows old Afterwords I went to install all updates and after everything was finished I noticed that my internet could only have limited access to my router I tried everthing disabling re-enabling deleting drivers and putting them back on putting the router into another slot on my mobo- nothing worked until I restored my computer back before I installed any updates After I did that I put back on the drivers and the internet worked again and my network could be fully accessed At st I assumed it was realtek drivers that windows update had me downloading so I blocked those from being updated and I updated again it blocked my network again So my question to you guys is off bit. Windows to Updated 64 blocking possibly connection. Updates internet Is there a Updated to Windows 64 bit. Updates possibly blocking off internet connection. specific known windows update that is notorious for blocking networks from being fully accessed What do you recommend I do

A:Advice needed please -fix Windows Updates not working - updated topic

First of all I am no guru yet. I am a student trying to become a guru. The other day a friend reverted back from 10 to 7 for similar reasons as yours. Her problem was cannot access internet via wireless or hard wired. Once that was fixed (drivers and OEM software from OEM website), I could not get updates. I tried everything I could find from many sources with no success. Then I ran across a post somewhere that said they kicked of the check for updates and let it go over night. It searches for ever but when I returned in the morning it had a suggestion for a fix. I allowed the suggestion and all was well. Sorry I can't remember exactly what it was but if it comes to me i will post it. If all else fails give it a try.

Could someone help me out with this question. Is there a program that will run on your computer to check if Windows XP is in need of any critical updates or updated patches? By the way, not sure what patches mean. That will show you my computer IQ. If someone could assist me, it would be appreciated.


A:Program to check for critical updates and updated patches for Windows XP Service Pack

Hello Adam, Welcome to TSF!

If you go Start > Control Panel > Security Center > Automatic Updates > set the updates to Automatic (recommended) you should not have any problems obtaining updates (patches), because your system will do it for you in the background.

To check if you have missed any updates, go Start > All Programs > Windows Updates (It's located on the top left of the All Programs screen) > follow the on-screen prompts.

Try these two methods and post back with the results.

Check it:

What's wrong?

A:Windows Update not showing any updates

Hi try clicking " Restore hidden updates" which can be seen in your screenshots.
If that does not work follow this : Windows Update - Reset
If your problem still occurs Try pressing "change settings" under windows update change it to never check for updates, then press ok. Next change it back to recommended settings, always check.... and so on, then press ok.
Please provide feedback, with how this goes.

I've been facing this issue lately on this new OS.
Previously on W7 & W8 the updates categorized into 2 column (Important & Optional) where we can select the updates individually and download/install. This way I can get some optional drivers for memory card, printers & etc.

I couldn't find this option in W10. I choose to ignore it but my antivirus keep notifying me that optional downloads are available. I did click the "Run System Updates" but it navigates to System > Update & Security > Message and shows "System is up to date".

Sometimes it only updates the critical updates. The rest (Recommended & Optional) ignored/not notified on windows updates.
Anyone facing this issue? Able to solve? Please help.

I've recently built a computer with the aid of my friend with Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) installed back in mid August. During this 2 month period I've noticed that Windows hasn't informed be about any updates and whenever I go to check for updates, it says to restart the computer. Another thing to note is that my copy of Windows 7 was bought back in 2011 and has not been used since then.

Asides from this, I also got a notification regarding my copy of Windows 7 isn't genuine even though I bought it.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.

I recently made a new fresh install of Vista Ultimate 64 bit. I was using it already, but had to format and reinstall, so everything is new and clean.

I have noticed something strange in windows update: optional driver updates for some devices (such as my monitor or the realtek network adapter) are no longer available and they are not showing in the available optional updates list. They seem to work ok but they are displayed in device manager using the generic microsoft drivers.

For example, whenever a new network adapter driver was available, I used to receive a windows update notification telling me that new Realtek drivers were available. Now they are not showing anymore.

Settings for Windows update are "check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them" and "include recommended updates" is ticked.

A:Driver updates not showing in Windows Update

Did you install SP1? It is possible that the updated SP1 files are more recent than the previously shown drivers in WU.

Also, I have noticed that WU never includes the most recent driver available for a system, just usually an older one that is fully compatible with your OS - I noticed this time and time again with nVidia drivers, for example, WU wants to install 169.25, whereas the newest driver version is actually 170.16....

Hen in doubt, I go with the latest drivers from the hardware manufacturer's site as opposed ot Windows Update.

Welcome to the forum!

First, do you have a restore point before this started? If not, could try USBDeview: View any installed/connected USB device on your system

Uninstall everything and reboot. Things should re-install properly when you plug them back in if you have proper drivers installed. If not, a more serious problem.

My PC often asks me to install updates when they are avaliable. They are all just the basic Security and what not updates. Under my previous registry keys, I noticed some activities were not working properly and I couldnt run some programs or install some updates fully. Yesterday, I followed the process found on the Microsoft website and installed an updated version of the registry keys. However, now when I click to install ready updates on my PC, I get an entire list saying that it was unable to install the updates. Under the keys I thought were bad, I could only NOT install 1-2 updates at the most. Now however with the new keys, I am unable to install any! Whats up with that? Should I find a way to go back to the previous version of the keys using a system restore or something?

A:Updated my Registry keys but now cant install updates!

You should always back up your registry before editing/updating/replacing to prevent problems like this. I'm afraid there's no quick fix that I know of.

And just FYI. I'm going to be out of town until Monday (4/16). Feel free to post what I should do and as soon as I get back I'll do that then reply. I just didn't want anybody to think I was blowing off their advice or got the problem fixed elsewhere. Thanks.

When I download and install the Windows XP Updates, I receive this message:

"Error creating process <C:\DOCUMENT~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\IXP000.TMP\dahotfix.exe /q/n> Reason: The system cannot find the path specified."

I have no idea why it started doing this (for about a week now). The update still gets installed alright. I have read that hotfix is some type of utility for Windows NT. I performed a search of my hard drives and found one instance: c:\windows\dahotfix.log

Has anyone else ever seen this and if so, recommend the best way to solve it.

Thanks ahead for any assistance.

Hi guys,

I had installed this mapping tool before applying all the Windows Updates and I got this Untrusted Certificate warning error as shown in the image.

Now, I had reinstalled Windows 10 and ran all the updates and then installed this tool which is a NON-Web version, meaning its a program that runs on the desktop but gathers all the mapping data from Bing Maps and so forth.
After when I launched it this time, that message DOES NOT appear now.

So clearly, it had something to do with a Windows Update that updates all Root Certificates.
But the issue is, I really need to know which update is it so next time I can install this Windows Update myself manually.

Anyone know?

Many thanks!

Black screen with message "system BIOS firmware is being updated." Then after several minutes "clearing pending image" and not to disconnect, "block 156/156 progress 100%." I left it for hours and it never changed. I have completed the hard reset by removing battery and draining, but did not change. It does not respond to any resets or reboots I've tried. Completely inoperable.

A:not showing office updates thru windows update for office 2010 win7

You mean what's called Microsoft Update. If you go in to the settings in Windows Update, do you have this checked:

I have Office 2013 Pro Plus, but the click-to-run version which updates itself and is not part of Windows Update. But I don't think there's a click-to-run version for 2010 Pro Plus so that is probably not the issue here.

I'm sorry if this is on the wrong forum section.

Some weeks ago I activated my Windows 7 Ultimate 64b and it worked perfectly. But now my computer is nagging about my copy of windows not being genuine. This message keeps popping constantly since yesterday.

How can I make it disappear and never show up again?

A:"Your Windows isn't Genuine" how can I make this message stop showing?

The last time it happened to me - I removed the last few Windows Updates, and Windows became genuine again. Do you know if a few Windows Updates got in just before this message began appearing?

[By few WUs, I mean I ran a concocted batchfile, restarted, no more non-genuine problems. There can be a price to pay, one has to have current OS partition backups - just before the message would be best, 2nd best is just before running this can-be-caustic batchfile.]

For the past two or three months, at
least once per week, I get a notice
that there are updates for Microsoft
Office Outlook 2007 - which is not
even installed on any of my computers...

there are also updates for Bing - also
not installed on any of my computers.

Last, there are update notices for
Microsoft Security Essentials - Installed.

I uncheck and hide the update details
for Office and Bing and select MSE and
install it....

sometimes, the same day, I will get the
exact same notice for updates...

Sometimes, it's a couple of days later....

but, always the exact same updates...

How do I make this silly thing go away?

Windows 7 Ultimate - 64 bit

The same thing is happening on my
laptop - 7 - 32 bit

your assistance is greatly appreciated

How can I get Windows update to find new updates for Office 2007? I've set automatic update to never/manual and unchecked "give reccomended same way as important". Yet, when I click "find updates", there are no items for Office 2007. This is a new install of O2007 btw, wth just the SP3 applied, nothing else.

This is someone else's screen shot. My system only shows two options, none of which involve other MS products...

(Btw, I have installed all other updates up till this month, so I'm pretty sure my update agent is up to date, just that it's not showing all four of those options)

A:Office 2007 updates not showing

Thought I hijack this thread rather than create a new one, but I just did a clean install of 7 and installed office 07, but I am having the same problem. I am not given the option for microsoft updates at all. I've never had this problem before. Is there something that I installed incorrectly perhaps? I do a custom install of office and only use word and excel and leave the other office tools, but I may have accidentally turned something off. Could that be a reason?

So I used to have Office 2007. I completely removed it, i'm talking using windows installer cleanup, deleting registry files, every program file related to it in so many places on my computer. Then I installed 2010 beta.

But three updates for Office 2007 keep showing up in Windows Update. its one for the junk email filter and two other security updates. I know I can hide them, and I did that, but in the back of my mind, hiding isn't good enough for me. Its bugging me that I can't make it so they won't show up anymore. Any Ideas?

A:Office 2007 Updates keep showing up..

just go ahead and let them install . Since office 2010 is still beta it may use some 2007 files.

Windows says all my drivers are up to date. But for example i was going to install the Intel WiDi and said that my wireless driver needs to be updated. What are the chances that its just different type of driver it needs or the worst part a lot of my drivers are not up to date?

A:Driver updates showing up to date but doesn't look like it

HP laptops some with an HP utility that allows you to check for newer drivers from HP -- don't know if yours does, but you should check for that.

The only way to tell is to see if (1) your laptop supplier has newer version drivers for your OS, and (2) the hardware suppliers for your components have newer drivers.

I would not trust any of these online services that claim to check your drivers -- mostly, they just want your money to install the same thing your already have, or worse, the wrong drivers.

Hi, I'm getting hopelessly confused by the fact that I have changed my password online (Microsoft Account) but now when I log in on my PC it says wrong password and won't log me in automatically.
I have tried the tutorial here but it throws me off after I fill in the new password. Besides this is the wrong window to change the stored password for my PC.

It lists my most recent updates as 11/14/12.
Yet when I check for my Windows Update History, all my updates are current thru today's date.

Why does this message always appear about Windows failing to update automatically, yet when I look at my updates they are all current?

A:"Windows could not check for updates automatically" message

Open Windows Update
Click on Change Settings
Select 'Never Update...'
Click OK
exit Windows Update
Now open Windows update again
Click on Change Settings
Select 'Update automatically'
Click OK
exit Windows Update
Open Windows Update, and do a manual Check for Updates.
Then follow the instructions in Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the results.

When I go to click something, 70% of the time, the option stays.
And you can see a shadow which is on top of everything.

This will now stay here until I turn my laptop off.

Any way to fix this?

After copying files and folders from a corrupt user profile to a new user profile, I commenced setting up WLM for two webmail accounts and a POP3 account.

Everything appeared to be ok (webmail accounts are fine) and WLM started to download my POP3 messages. All of the headers and subject lines are fine yet there doesn't appear to be any message content.

WLM - Version 2011 (Build 15.4.3538.0513)

Any ideas?

Hello all I hope I can find some answers as I have been searching through Google for half the day Background Windows XP Home SP Client machine came in infected with a Fake Alert and bundled with it was a TDSS Rootkit The client was running AVG Free and the paid version of SuperAntiSpyware SAS caught part of the infection and prompted the client to reboot their computer upon the reboot they experienced a BSOD STOP C A I used the saved copies of the registry from inside the system restore folder from a couple days earlier and was able to get the machine up and running Installed MBAM Showing Center Updates Security Automatic Off Turned and ran a full scan Clean TDSSKiller scan detected Security Center Showing Automatic Updates Turned Off no Rootkits but did find a TDSS File System and it was quarantined Customer had outdated version of AVG Free updated and experienced issues with the resident shield not starting Uninstalled AVG and replaced with Microsoft Security Essentials Full Scan with MSE - No threats detected AVG Rescue CD Full Scan - threat detected inside System restore chkdsk several times to repair broken indexes and recover lost files During this process I have rebooted the machine a few times each time after a reboot the security center reports Automatic Updates are turned of Inspection of the service through services msc shows the service as disabled Now whats funny is that I can set the service to automatic and start the service and Security Center Showing Automatic Updates Turned Off it will operate normally until the next reboot then I have to go through the process again I thought it might be a Group Policy setting but that s not available in Home Edition To troubleshoot the issue I have completed the following -Reregistered the DLL Files -Ran the FixIt from Microsoft which found issues and fixed them but didnt report what they were -tried to install the windows update agent but wouldnt take because it was already installed -Reset all Services to their default startup states via a registry file found on the web -checked the machine again for Rootkits using TDSSKiller and Blacklight - Nothing found and as a last ditch resort I ran ComboFix with my fingers crossed that it would find what I wasn t able to Log file shows quot other deletions quot but nothing of to much importance from what I could tell And advice would be greatly appreciated I m sure the answer is in front of my face but I just cant see it

it might be a case of going through the motions. click checking for the itunes update to resolve it.. "Check for updates" its going to say iTunes isnt up to date. but Download iTunes from Apple and see if everything syncs ok

A:Windows 7 updates same for updates every time it checks for updates

See if you can System Restore to before Net Framework 4 was installed and then Hide it when it is again offered in Updates.

But be aware that some programs will need it and may not prompt you of this leaving you to guess why they are not installing or performing correctly. For this reason I always install it.

So you might want to reinstall it using its standalone installer since it may not have uninstalled correctly anyway.

Hi all,

Just joined so thought I would kick things off with a question of clarification .

I currently working in a call center and a load of our machines on the floor and back office keep getting this annoying message pop up:

To me this doesn't look like the normal windows update prompt, could this be something third party or malicious?

A:Annoying automatic updates message

Welcome to TSF!

It looks to be third party. Wait until you get one of the messages again, open Task Manager (Ctrl-Shift-Esc), look under the Application tab for a window titled "Automatic Updates". Right click on it and select Go To Process. You will be taken to a specific entry in the Processes tab.

Note down its name, then right click on it > Properties. Look under the Location entry of the Properties dialog.

Now you should definitely know which application it comes from. If you still don't however, just send us this data and we will try to ID it for you.

I have a friend which has Vista, just installed SP1 ( I know a bit behind), now they get a message every time they boot "configuring updates stage 3 0f 3 - 0% complete" After few minutes it disappears and laptop boots into Vista.

I know about the reboot loop issue, but this one appears to boot, just the delay and the message.

The pending xml has been deleted, but the message continues.

I am thinking of installing SP2, but am hesitant to do so.

Anyone ever seen this behavior before? What to do.

Thanks to all who reply.

I had the same problem, though at a different point in the update process, with my laptop.

I had to abandon the update on my laptop and reinstall.

Do I have to go through all that a gain with my Desktop?
