Order of installing SP3 and Windows Updates

Q: Order of installing SP3 and Windows Updates

I have delayed upgrading to SP3 but I have been installing the subsequent XP security updates. I am now about to install SP3 but it has occurred to me, will I have any problems if I install SP3 on top of the Windows updates that came out after SP3?

Preferred Solution: Order of installing SP3 and Windows Updates

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: Order of installing SP3 and Windows Updates

You shouldn't have any problems installing SP3. I recently downloaded SP3 myself. I didn't have any problems.

When you download something like SP3 it will replace files, if it needs to, to make the proper install.

Hey everyone,

I'm preparing for a Windows 7 slip stream install using RT 7 Lite following this tutorial:
Slipstream Windows 7 SP1 into a Installation DVD or ISO File

Does anyone who has experience with this know if there's a required order to applying the updates on the slip stream?

Another tutorial mentions that another program, NTLite, will apply the updates in the preferred order:

Is this the same case for RT 7 Lite or even something to be concerned about?

Thanks in advance

A:Windows 7 Slipstream - Order to applying updates?

There are limitations on using a slipstreamed Win7 installer for Repair Install and certain other uses, so if at all possible I'd find a download w/SP1 following the suggestions in Step 1 of Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

Sorry to post a new thread but the old one " [Tecra A10 - Installation order for XP|] " being closed and my question relates to the same topic.

I got hold of a Tecra A10 PTSB0A-002001 and I would like to install XP SP3 on it so the order in which to install Toshiba additionnal drivers is very useful. Thank you Ivan25 for that information.

Toshiba also include a Java Runtime Environment 2 package which I was planning to replace by a JSE 7. I would like to know in which order it has to be installed?

Furthermore, after installing XP SP3 there are still hundreds of Windows updates to apply, should those Windows updates be installed straight after XP SP3 setup or after Toshiba drivers?

Thank you in advance for your help

A:Tecra A10 - Installation order for XP, additional Windows updates and JRE

Java Runtime Environment 2 package can be installed after installation of all common drivers and tools? Java Runtime Environment isn?t essential part if it comes to install other drivers and tools and therefore it?s not very important when the package would be installed.

You have to install all the Win XP updates after the installation of Toshiba drivers and utilities.
During the update installation, the notebook needs to be rebooted several times and the whole procedure would take some time?

However, from my point of few, Win XP isn?t the best choice now since the Microsoft does not provide any support for this system now?

Wondering if there are any sites or recommendations you folks would have regarding the correct install order of Windows Updates, for 98 and XP. I would also like to be able to download all of those updates for safe-keeping on a USB hard drive which I could take to clients on repairs. What are your recommendations? I seem to find no clear-cut information on how to install these, and in what order, and which ones are THE most-important to install in order to not get hacked while online. The dumb thing I did the other day was reinstall XP on a customer's computer, and XP didn't discover his NIC properly. Used a modem to access the 'net to get the driver, and would you believe, in that amount of time, his comp was infected with the Welchia virus. So you can see my quandry...

thanks in advance

That is heck of a drive to be installing on mate just how did you prepare it for the install?

You can run a chkdsk in Windows too > My Computer > right click on the drive > Properties > Tools > Check now - then follow the points in my pic.
You then reboot and it will start a chkdsk (in DOS).

The Windows Photo Viewer will not display photos in the order they are sorted by Windows Explorer.
This is not referring to the slide show feature, just the forward and back arrows.
The only order pictures can be viewed is by name despite Windows Explorer being set at view by date, ascending.
I have repaired Microsoft Live Essentials, uninstalled and reinstalled but the issue remains.
This is also not an issue with photo tags or photo names.
Windows Explorer sorts as selected but click a picture in the middle to view, click the forward arrow and instead of the next date picture being viewed, the next name picture is viewed.

A:Windows Photo Viewer; sorting order not the same as view order


I upgraded to Windows 10 recently as well, I have the same problem and I also have a solution. However, I do not know, if it is ideal. :-)

What is obviously missing is an entry in the registry called DropTarget. This entry tells Windows Photo Viewer to display the images in the sorting order of the folder Photo Viewer got called from.

I saw that at least in my registry there is a DropTarget defined in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget. From the name of the key and from reading the docs this looks as if it would be applied to all calls to this program, but -if that actually is the case- for me this entry does not work. It has been there (at least) after my Windows 10 upgrade, also the "Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}" seems to be fine, but it does not do the job.

For me, this problem was present for jpg and png files, but not for bmp, dib, gif, jfif and what else can be opened with Windows Photo Viewer. To fix this, I have added the following to the Windows Registry:


After you added that to the registry, rightclick a jpg file, select "Open with", choose Windows Photo Viewer and click "Always open with this app". This step is not intended to actually change the program you are using (actually the program stays the same), but it makes Windows reload the file associations.

If afterwards you open a jpg or a png file, the sorting order should be the same as it was in your folder - at least it was for me.

Final thoughts:
I would be happy, if I got it working using the key Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget I mentioned above, but that is only a technical detail. Fact is: With the jpegfile and pngfile DropTarget posted above it's working!

Hello All,

I was referred here by NeonFx from the TechGuy Security forum. He had me run a slew of anti-virus/anti-spyware diagnostics. According to NeonFx my system is currently infection free and he states the problem lies elsewhere.

He also had me run the Windows Update FixIt tool in both Default and Aggressive mode - both of which did not fix the problem. So what is the problem??


When I run the install Windows updates, the updates do not install, and I receive the following message (not verbatim, but close):

"Some updates were unable to be installed..."

This problem "came out of no where" and there has been no suspicious activity prior to it starting other than an IE7 redirect rootkit that NeonFx helped me remove (if I recall correctly an infection of agp440)...

Stumped, stumped and stumped...

I have the following Important (including Recommended) Windows Updates and have a few questions before I start.

Yes, I know some of them are a bit old. I will probably not bother with the "Malicious Software Removal Tool" and would do SP1 last.

(a) should I do the Updates in any particular order?
(b) and, one at a time or several?
(c) are any likely to be problematic?
( d ) don't some of those .NET framework ones supersede others or does WU sort that out?
(e) will I get a load more appearing in the list after doing these?

A:What order of Updates, and one at a time?

Here is one opinion: Advice please on best way to install updates for Windows 7

I usually let Windows install whatever it has selected. Sometimes the WU process will get things out of order and that causes updates to fail. No big deal, those failing updates should install in subsequent attempts.

The two .NET updates that you highlighted patch different things.

A:Order for downloading Win updates?

Do only the "critical" ones and then do SP1. The critical ones may need to be done in groups of about 6-8 at a time, starting with the oldest or the Top of the listing.

The others are based on different hardware and software that MAY be on the machine.
For any drivers I would be going the OEM site, for updates.

As for the recommended ones, you need to have a look at each one to see if it applies to you and your machine.

I realize this isn't a major problem, but it's something that irks me and I was wondering if it was possible to fix.

I recently reset my laptop back to factory setting and before that I could've sworn that the XP updates I installed were listed in the Add/Remove Program list in alphabetical/numerical order. It made it easy to see which updates I installed.

I reinstalled the patches and at first they were listed in order, but suddenly the order just randomly changed. My list is set to sort by name, but it doesn't have any effect on Windows Program Updates list. I installed everything going from oldest to newest so it should've stayed in order, but it didn't.

Is there anyway to get it back in order?

Hello everyone,
I reinstalled XP on a pc yesterday and am having some problems with Windows Updates.

My question is two fold:
1. Is there a specific order in which we can update an XP machine without problems (generally)?
2. Is it possible to create a DVD with an update package so we don't have to connect to the Windows Update website?

I tried to download and install IE8 to make the update process easier, but that required another update, but I was unable to get that from the Update site.

I saw a post by Noel where he told the OP to install by Date, not KB# which reminded me of a question I've had for quite some time. Are updates generally listed in order of 'Importance' or 'Date' or what?

Right now I'm down to 6 updates left to do. They're all .NET Framework from the 7/9/13 list of updates & in clicking on the "More info button" they're all 7/9 & there are 4 listed for 3.5.1, then 2 listed for 4. I've read something about it's best to install these type one at a time, is that true? If so, that's 6 re-boots in a row if I were to do them all now which I kinda thought about since it's already 2 weeks past Patch Tuesday. I'm also assuming that all the Framework 3.5.1 should be done before the Framework 4.


A:Installation order of list of updates

The KB Number is generated at the start of a project - and as a results bears only some resemblance to the order in which patches are released, since some patches take longer to develop, test and approve, than others.

I generally do .NET update in increasing order by version, then date
e.g for XP, do all v1.1 then v2/3.5 - for Win7, all 3.5, then 4.5 (I've uninstalled 4.0, as it seemed always to create more problems than any other version)

A:Windows XP not installing updates


now this is just for starters

now what i need to do is go to your (device manager)

now once there you will want to select from the toolbar of the window(veiw) then a drop down menu / from it you will select (show all hidden devices)

now if you see any (red or yellow) quotation marks , make a note of what they

now go to the (event veiwer) this is thru the (administrator tools) in the control panel
here you will find 3 to 4 subcatagories

you will want to check each of them for this is where windows keeps track of all errors
now you will want to make notes of the errors that have been recorded ( you do not have to make notes of double entries just of the dates of their happenings & how many there is)
you will get more information on the errors if you (right) click them / then select properties


do you have a Windows Xp cd, not the restore cd's that come with some systems, the cd will have the Windows logo & 3D hollowgram/image on it

if you do not maybe you can barrow one from a friend/family member/co-worker as long as it is the same version that is on your system

if you have (Windows XP Home Ed. sp2 ) then the cd will have to be that / if you have a cd with (Windows XP Home Ed. )you will have to slipstream (SP2 ) onto a disk that you create

this also applies to (Windows XP Professsional )

now if you do have the Windows XP cd with sp2 please follow these steps


performing a (sfc) system file checker

It is a scan that checks the core files & dlls of the (os) operating system and replaces them if they are corrupt or missing with the correct original version


#1 then select (run) , then press enter
a window will open
#2 type in ( cmd ) then press enter
another window will open
#3 type in ( sfc )then press enter
another window will open
#4 type in (sfc /purgecache) then enter / your pc will work like crazy / this helps in rebuiding the cache file (notice the space between (sfc & /)
#5 type in (sfc /scannow ) then press enter ( notice the space between the (sfc & / )

now a scan will start , have your (Windows XP software disk ready ) your pc may ask for this disc when it starts or during the scan( so you must sit with the pc while this scan functions ) , if it does then incert the cd into one of your cd/rom/player's , your pc will then reconnize it and continue , you will then have to minimize the splash screen for the cd to see the scan , when the scan is finished you will need to close the cd and all open windows , then remove the cd

you will then need to do a ( Disk Cleanup ) , then empty the caches & temp files thru the (Internet Options) , then do a defrag

restart your pc

then do a defrag again after the reboot


now this is the process

a (sfc) is a windows scanner that is directed at the core system files & dll's

it scans only these files & dll's to see if they have been corrupted or replaced by (maleware/spyware/trojans/ viruses/ ect..that are designed to mask themselves as part of the operating system and cause havic or send information/data to it maker /originator

now i do know that during this process that these 2 patches/hotfix's will be knocked out

Obviously I'm a bit worried. If anyone knows what would cause this or how I could bypass it I'd be *very* grateful.

Okay, edit. I can now access Windows Update manually and it turns out I'm missing lots of security updates, which my computer should have downloaded automatically. It hasn't. Any ideas why this could be?

I have a dell e7250 laptop that refuses to install updates (specifically IE11 and it's prerequisites). I have ensured that the laptop is in the proper OU in AD to receive updates.  I have restarted the Windows Update service and run wuauclt
/resetauthorization /detectnow.  I have tried to install IE11 manually but it fails out as the prerequisites will not install.  I have been receiving code 80073701 and for IE 9C59.  My research shows that SP1 has been improperly installed
or is corrupted.  We would like to avoid rebuilding this machine from scratch as it is in a remote location. 

Does anyone have a solution other than wiping the machine and starting from scratch?

hello,I am having some issues with windows update. The last couple weeks every time i shut down my laptop, there is a message in the screen " installing updates 1/1". I must let you know that in the past i always had my laptop on sleep mode, as a result i missed some updates. Moreover, sometimes because i was in a hurry despite the fact that windows mentioned that i must not power off the laptop when installing updates, i did. Thank you for your time and patience

The hack that I am I'd system restore before that point. There's probably a smarter more elaborate way of doing things. When you do restore it will try to update again I think.

Ive recently come across a problem all starting after using windows xp disc to recover from a virus that made the pc not log in (some virus called ntso.exe which i got rid of)....
I used the windows xp disc with SP2 to do a non destructive install which kept all my files but had to reinstall gfx drivers / sound / mobo chipset and ai gear for asus mobo.
I then came across the problem , windows update says it was downloading , downloaded then said "express install" so I did install them but after about a minute it says error installing these updates and just closes and then update.exe keeps coming on and off in processes.

If anyone can help me solve this id be gratefull as its getting on my nerves.

Windows notifies me that there are updates available. When I select to install the updates it takes a long time and I get a message stating that windows has detected that my computer is running on battery power and to plug my computer into an outlet. I get this message even when my computer is plugged into an AC outlet at the beginnig of the update dowload attept.

What could be the problem? I had to have Windows 7 reinstalled on my computer by someone at a local charitable company but I've noticed little weird things that didn't happen when I had my original version. Internet sessions closing suddenly and cursor skipping around the page eventhough I updated my touchpad drivers.

Any help with these issues is greatly apprecieated

A:Windows Updates not installing

At the outset you could seek the help of the person who installed Windows 7. That said the other way out is to reinstall Windows 7 with your original genuine DVD yourself.

But before you do that, please check that the installed copy of Windows 7 is genuine. If you find that it is genuine then please make the downloading and installation of the updates automatic. Wait for a day or two and check if all the updates are installed. If yes then leave the settings as they are and take no further action except keep using the computer normally.

If not then please reinstall Windows as suggested in the opening para.

A:Windows 7 not installing updates

I think the 0300 bit is a Microsoft fetish, I know I am something of a night bird, but even my computer is seldom on at 0300 local.
I think you are going to have to do these updates manually. Start by going into 'Windows Updates' and changing the setting from 'Install automatically' to 'Notify when updates are ready' then 'Check for updates' and stand back !
After a few minutes, you will get the message 'Updates are ready for your computer'. MS splits these into 'Important' and 'Optional' categories. You can select all of them, or just some of them, then click 'Install updates' and the downloading and installation process will go on in the background - you can be doing other work while this happens. If you are using the internet, you will notice that it's performance is reduced, thihs is because the updates are using some of your bandwidth.
When the installation is finished, you will get one of three messages - (1) The updates were successful, or (2) Windows needs to restart, or (3) The updates failed.
For (1), no further action required. For (2) just re-boot the computer. For (3), go back to 'Check for updates' and select say 10 or 15 at a time. If you then get a batch fail to install properly, it is easier and less time consuming to work out which one is causing the problem.
I have my updates permanently set 'Notify but don't install'
Hope that helps,
Chris Cosgrove

I like doing my updates in groups, what I don't like, is after every group update I have to restart the machine.

Is there a way or setting to pause the restart until I'm finished, and I decide I want to restart?

What about the balloon pop-up at the taskbar, is there a way to stop it from appearing?

Let's say that you had 15 updates and you install 5 of them (but you find a way to not restart).

Then you install 5 more and put off restarting.

Then you install the final 5 - then restart.

That is the same thing as just selecting all 15 to be installed all at once. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)

I know that lots of people suggest doing updates in small chunks... but I've not had any issues letting MS manage the updates. Maybe it because most of my experience with doing a lot of updates is within a VM.

As far as allowing more updates without restarting: I was able to do that by changing some registry values, but let's not post "solutions" like that for the general public to play with. I did my testing inside a virtual machine where there was nothing to lose.

Hi all, I have recently been put in charge of formatting all the laptops at work before they go back on sale.

One thing that I have found frustrating is installing the drivers. I have had some laptops sitting for around 4-5 hours, just simply updating the system bit by bit, and I was wondering if there is a way to just download all the drivers at once, and do a mass install.

Doing this on 7 or 8 laptops is painful

Thanks for any help in advance :)

A:Installing all Windows 7 updates ate once

If they are all the same drivers or you know which ones you need, then just download them onto a Flash or DVD and then copy them onto their respective machines.

It's the downloading bit that is time consuming so by doing it that way, you only need to download them once - although video drivers can take some time installing unless you choose the express option.

I'm wondering if anyone has a solution to this: lately, when I update an application which I have in my Quick Launch toolbar, its icon move to the end of the list of icons (as if it were a newly installed program and not one that had simply been updated). This means every time I update, say, Firefox, or Thunderbird, or Seamonkey, etc., I have to go into the Quick Launch toolbar and drag it back to its proper place.

Is there any way to address this or is it something that's changed in how Mozilla updates its programs? Ideally (and what used to happen) is that most program icons stayed put after the programs they pointed to were updated.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

A:Order of icons in Quick Launch changes after application updates

What is happening is that the update uninstalls the currently installed version, thus it is no longer in the QL area, then it installs the new version which is placed to the right of all existing icons. At least that is my guess.

6. Touchpad, Pointer, Track-stick, Mice, and Keyboards

Hi ankita22,

Welcome to EightForums !

To list all visible Windows OS installed on your computer you can use "Dual-boot Repair" tool that comes with Visual BCD.

Install. Start Dual-boot Repair. Click on "Automatic Repair" BUT DO NOT CONFIRM (do not click OK button).
Post screenshot so we can see what Windows OS are visible.

A screenshot of Disk Management would be useful too.

Contents of BCD is also useful in diagnosing - open admin command prompt and type:
bcdedit >bcdedit.txt<enter>

What is the best order for installing drivers and windows updates?

A:best order for installing drivers?

Install the chipset driver first if it is available. I think Intel now calls it "chipset software installation utility".

I'd probably then make sure I had a working Internet connection--that requires an Ethernet driver.

Not sure it matters after that.

Windows Update will normally feed you only certain updates, depending on what it sees when it analyzes your PC.

You should be sure you have Service Pack 1, but it won't be offered unless certain other updates are in place.

The normal advice is to take the updates a few at a time, rebooting after each batch---rather than taking 50 in one dose.

Hi, when I download some windows 8 updates - not store updates - and restart the PC. After windows boots to desktop it shows me that they are all installed, but after a few minutes they come back as uninstalled and when I install them again the problem continues

what should i do?

Relevancy 51.6%

Windows 10 10240
Since the middle of November the only Windows Updates that have downloaded are Security Update for Microsoft Office, Word, Excel, Silverlight, Malicious Software Removal Tool and Update for Windows 8.1 forx64-based Systems (KB2990967) and Update for Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems(KB3063843) these last two updates keep repeating to download and install. I can see no other updates ready to download, that includes the KB3122947 1511 update which does not appear when I check for updates!
Why do KB2990967 and KB3063843 keep downloading and installing?Any suggestions?

A:Two Windows Updates repeatedly installing!

Just a very long shot in the dark.

First do a backup and/or system restore and check your OS partition for errors (chkdsk); then boot into safe mode and try deleting the windows\SoftwareDistribution folder. Restart and try again.

Thanks in advance for any help. Last night I logged off my Windows 7 PC and it began installing updates. This morning I find that it is stuck, saying "Please do not power off or unplug your machine. Installing update 8 of 17." I'm not very computer savvy, so what is my next step?

A:Windows 7 PC will not finish installing updates

If that update is the new MSE it is waiting for you to respond to several prompts. But if the system is in that never-never land between logging off and logging on and you cannot see the prompts you are kinda stuck. If that is the case there is not much I can think of other than to ignore the warning and force a power off (with your fingers crossed for luck, of course).

On my 4 month old netbook running XP Home (2002) SP3, haven't had any problems installing Windows updates until KB978380 and KB972581, which could not be installed. I went to the Windows Update site and manually downloaded the exe files to my desktop to install, but neither one will work, giving the message "The detection failed, this can be due to a corrupted installation database."

I've tried clearing my temp files and my C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder, as well as verifying genuine Windows software, and still get the same message. Any ideas?

A:Trouble installing Windows updates

I read your log where Gringo assisted you and see you have turned Windows Updates on as suggested. That would have been the first item I would have asked you to check.

You may like to run through my Windows Update tutorial from Method 2 onwards....

"The detection failed, this can be due to a corrupted installation database."

I am not sure what the meaning is of the quoted passage from your initial post, but it would not hurt for you to run sfc /scannow to make sure you have no missing or corrupt .dll files within your Operating System. This action should be part of your monthly maintenance to keep you computer running well.

let us know,

kind regards,

Unless you plan on installing Windows 10 on this machine, you don't need KB3035583 - simply Hide it.
KB2990967 is related to OneDrive (for Windows 8.x only!) - the simplest fix is probably to uninstall OneDrive, and then reinstall it from a fresh download.

Alternatively, you can uninstall updates till Microsoft provides any fixes or patch for that. Follow below steps to uninstall any update on the system:

1. Press 'Window' + 'Q' button and type update. Tap settings and choose Installed updates.

2. The opened window will contain list of updates installed on your PC. choose the same update you've mentioned in your first post, right click on it and select Uninstall.

3. The step will begin uninstalling updates and soon confirmation window will open. Click OK and restart your PC.

My W7 Ultimate PC is primed not to allow windows updates to install automatically.

I noticed tonight while shutting down the machine that 34 updates were being installed. After rebooting, I checked my update settings and they were still at 'Download updates but let me choose whether to install them'.

Anyone else have this issue or know why it happened?

Hello, i downloaded win7 updates (that came after sp1) to my usb memory stick. Then i can transport and install them to computers that dont have internet.
I used Windows Updates Downloader to download them.
Is it possible to automatically install them all from usb or hdd? Right now i have to click and install them one by one from usb memory stick.
Maybe somekind of installing script that installs next update if previous gets installed?
Sorry for bad english language.
Thank You!

My PC has Intel motherboard DG31PR, Core 2 duo, 2 GB memory, 325 GB HD. I installed Windows three years back. After that many updates were automatically installed till yesterday. I now find my Windows has
started developing nad sectors, and of and on giving error messages. I run "SFC /scannow" to temporarily solve the errors. However, SFC many times says some errors could not be repaired.
My question is, is it possible to retrieve updates already available in my HD, format my HD, reinstall Windows 7, and then finally re-install updates already retrieved; or have I to download all these updates (running to a few GBs) from the date of first installation of Windows 7 three years ago.
Thanks for your solution, in advance.

A:Re installing Windows 7 - retrieval of Updates

Could you sure but it is not the best way. Any problems with those updates would be transferred to your new install.

I recommend just doing a clean install and let Windows Updates do it's thing. We all know it will take some time.

You could read through this tutorial by Brink and see if it suites your needs better.
You will still have to do the Windows Updates.

A:Windows 7 installing updates VERY long!?

Hi the first question I will ask is how it is trying to install and what was the reason for leaving it for months ie was there some previous unresolved issue you may have forgotten about

Hi there,

Been having a few problems with my computer lately on Windows Vista and I've tracked them all back to the fact that my updater CAN download the updates fine, but when it tries to install them it gives me a big fat FAILED!

Just wondering if anyone can suggest anything that may be causing these 'fails' and tell me if there is any possible solutions. If any specs are needed, please ask since this isn't my personal computer so don't bother taking notice of my system.

I have Windows XP w SP- installed on a laptop Last night I was notified that Windows installing shutdown updates XP on there were four critical updates to be installed I clicked to install them When I shut the computer down I noticed that the quot Turn off quot button had the little security shield icon superimposed and mousing over the button said that it would install updates and shut down my computer I had never noticed anything like this before but I assumed it was a new Windows XP installing updates on shutdown feature that came with a recent Windows update Now I m worried that I was wrong because after shutting down at pm or Windows XP installing updates on shutdown so last night the computer seems to be hung I have a screen with a blue background the Windows XP logo and I get a message that alternates between saying quot Do not turn off or unplug your computer it will turn off automatically quot and quot Installing update of quot Again this is behaviour I ve never seen before and has been going on now for over hours Unfortunately I Windows XP installing updates on shutdown did not make note of the critical updates but I seem to remember that the file sizes were not that large Can anyone tell me if I m just installing a very large update of some sort and shouldn t interrupt it or if something has gone wrong and I need to hard re-boot Thanks for your help nbsp

A:Windows XP installing updates on shutdown

I experienced the same last night. That was the first time I have seen an update at shut down. However, I did not experience any problems. The update took about a minute or two, then my laptop shut down as normal. I'm not the person to tell you if you have a problem, or what to do about it.

Hi everyone

I recently did a factory boot of my system so of course upon the first or second restart I was bombarded with about 140 windows updates! Maybe it's just me and my predisposed distrust for windows update, but my comp seems to be moving slightly slower now, but that isn't the issue right now.

Does anyone know how to tell when the recommended windows updates are a good idea to install? I usually just install the recommended ones. I'm doing this solely on the fact that the machine is telling me to since I don't know how to judge whether or not an update is needed. I would like to know if anyone has some sort of criteria before they accept a windows update.


A:When are windows updates worth installing?

I am going to give you the correct answer.

I am not going to give you the answer you want to hear.

First, Win 7 is NOT eXPired.

Second, carry out the following procedure perfectly.

Change settings (left-hand column) |
checkmark all four of the boxes | OK button

Approve any dialog boxes presented. Let Windows install any update features.

WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

Check for Updates (left-hand column)
Install ALL critical updates.
Restart your computer (even if not prompted)

Repeat this procedure until there are no more critical updates.

DO NOT TRUST the “Windows is up to date” in center of dialog. until you see that TWICE IN A ROW!

Use the “critical update” procedure until all important updates are installed.

Use the “critical update” procedure until all optional updates are installed.

Under Optional updates you will be presented with a list of about 34 language updates.
You can hide those updates so that aren't continually notified of those updates. When you click on 34 optional updates are available, then you
a) highlight all of the language updates,
b) right-click anywhere in the highlighted list.
c) click on Hide Updates,
d) OK button.
Install ALL, yes, ALL updates.
This is Win 7 and not Vista or XP (eXPired).

Hung is very doubtful unless you interrupted updates.

CTRL + SHIFT + ESC key combo will pop-up the Task Manager.
Lo and behold, Windows Update is still running!

You hold down the CTRL and SHIFT keys.
While holding them down, tap the ESC key once.

have windows XP Pro with service pack 2 installed on my pc. I have recently tried installing new antivirus software without any success. When I went to get the lastest windows system updates (some 38 of them!), there was only 2 that installed and all the others failed. I downloaded service pack 3 as it had all the updates but it also failed to unpack and install.

I believe there is obviously something wrong with the operating system and the updates which has not allowed me to install anything. I have looked at the XP installation CD and help files. There are a couple of options open to me including a reinstall of the operating system. I cautious on doing this as I dont want to loose any of the existing programs and files on my computer.

Wondering if anyone else has come across this problem and what the best solution would be.

Thank you

A:Problem installing windows updates

Try this:
1) Make sure you have admin privileges.
2)Insert O/S disc.
3)Cancel or press no, if you have the autorun setting on.
4)Hit start->Run->type "sfc /scannow"

It will scan your OS if any of your system files has changed anyway and since you have the windows CD in the CD drive it will copy the oem files from the cd to fix the problem.

It will take sometimes, so do it when you have time to kill, if it prompts you, just keep clicking retry.

Now try to download and reinstall the updates now.

I've just started receiving a problem with not being able to install Windows updates. They seem to download ok, but I'm getting failing errors upon trying to install them.

The error codes I'm receiving are Code 800B0100, and Code 8024200D.

I've run scan now under the command prompt and did not receive any integrity issues.

I'm trying to attach the file to this thread, but all I end up with is a 404 server error, so I'm not sure what that's all about. At any rate, I'll keep trying to upload the file for someone more knowledgeable than me to take a look at, and hopefully, please help me out.

My computer bluesecreens a LOT (3 times just today), has been nearly since I built it 5 years ago and I've gone through everything to fix it. Last thing I've noticed is that there have been a couple of updates to my motherboard firmware but when I try to install them I just get an error that they won't work with a 64 bit OS (Win7 64). I thought about using a live CD running a 32 bit Windows just to install the update. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Any reason it might not be a good idea? I looked around and just at first glance saw one called Vista pe that looked pretty decent.

A:Installing updates via Windows Live CD

You may be able to flash it directly from the BIOS. My ASUS motherboards have an Easyflash utility built in. I just put the rom file on a thumb drive and do it all from the BIOS menu. The motherboard manufacturer may also have a utility to create a bootable thumb drive with the flash utility on it. Then you just boot from the thumb drive and run the utility. It might be easier than the live CD method.
