After the Windows 10 August 13, 2016 update, all my picture files (jpg) don't show any thumbnail pictures or a preview when you hover over them... none. They open just fine, but it's sure a pain not being able to first see what they are without having to actually open each one first. Why did happen and what can be done to fix it?

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

After the August 13, 2016 Windows 10 update, several problems developed. One was that the Taskbar Peek feature was not working. I right clicked on the taskbar, and went in to enable it, however to my surprise the box you click on was a FADED pale grey color and even still showed the previous check mark in it. In other words, there is no way I can enable the Peek feature. Now what can I do to make the Peek feature usable again?

Windows 10 Pro x64 laptop had updates set to automatically download and then notify. (Still using v. 1511 build 10586 due to continuing reported issues with 1607.) No problems with any updates prior to Oct 2016.

Oct 11 cumulative update KB3192441 apparently failed and gave notice it would "automatically retry later". Download failed again on Oct 12, 13 and 14. Went to Microsoft Update Catalog and downloaded/installed KB3192441 without any apparent issues. But when I opened Settings > Update & security, I saw a brand new notice that "Some settings are managed by your organization" (see screenshot.)

Q1: Why did this happen?

Q2: How do I regain full control over future updates since this laptop is not part of an "organization"?

NOTE: I tried modifying Windows Update settings using this tutorial. No effect on removing the "Some settings are managed by your organization" notice.

Windows Update Automatic Updates - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

I also tried using three System Restore Points and two System Images all made prior to Oct 11. They did not have any success in removing the notice. It reappeared as soon as I clicked the "Check for updates" button.

(BTW, going thru the Microsoft Update Catalog resulted in a download of 1.03GB and took almost 6 hours to complete. I understand that MS wants people to have all released updates but this cumulative concept really stinks. End of rant.)

A:October 2016 Cumulative Update Changed Settings

Run CMD as admin and copy/paste:

reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost" /f
reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /f
reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost" /f

Note, that it will probably appear again, it is related to some Windows Update/Insider settings.

Tried Media Creation with Windows Defender turned off, network off and also tried on-no luck.  Am part of the WIndows Insider Preview and will not upgrade past OS Build 10586.494.  No upgrades since 7/13. All other HP desktops upgraded fine including Surface 3.  Guess I'll just hang in there until a viable fix is released.

Recently received this notebook from my daughter and her fiance fro my birthday, and am greatly impressed. Wanted to download/install August 2016 Windows 10 upgrade, but "Settings" search said computer is up to date. Went on Microsoft site and downloaded update, but it will not install. I get a message that the program needs 20gb to install, and only 2gb are free. SSD is only 32gb to begin with. Is there a separate download for notebooks, or will I not be able to install update unless I uninstall programs?

I once again request you to please escalate the matter to HP international for a resolve in Canada(I will provide the address and mobile number of daughter Vasudha once you confirm some development). It is also beyond my imagination that how Canada HP can refuse to repair a laptop which was purchased paying extra money with international warrantee from Kuwait. Please help or advise the further course of action. There is Big Big question mark on after sales service despite paying extra money for international warrantee.

That looks like the longest gap we've had between Cumulative updates, although the holiday season is part of the reason.I suspect Win 10 "out of the box" is relatively bug free now. Those with problems are folk who have upgraded from some Win 7 or 8. Definitely some mess ups there which I doubt MS will ever address.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi
after every update , i used to run as administrator Disk Cleanup and clean windows update

and Disk cleanup kept always 2mb under windows update cleanup

well , i update august update , i reboot , and after i run as administrator disk cleanup and i select windows update cleanup

the odd thing is that it deleted without a reboot! in the past when i wanted to clean the windows update via Disk cleanup w7 performs this action after the reboot

well the point is that now when i run as administrator disk cleanup , in the list windows update cleanup is gone

weird there is still the option "back file service pack" -> 0 kb

but there is no more windows update cleanup option , it's gone

thanks
sorry for my poor english

A:after august update,Windows Update Cleanup is gone

Since I never use the option I've not noticed anything amiss here - but when I ran the Cleanup, it properly scanned the WU cleanup area and gave me the option to remove 7.3GB of data (I need the older updates, so didn't take the option!)

I'll have a play in a VM later and see if I can reproduce your observation - I'll also refer a couple of other specialists to the thread and see if they have seen anything similar.

I would and always take a system image with Macrium. Restore points are not enough before an UPGRADE.

It is an UPGRADE to a new version of 10, We are to expect this about twice a year. And yes it should be released Aug 2 according to MS.

Hi:
 
The latest (critical) window updates (around August 2nd, and mainly critical to the security) turn my web pages inaccessible. The IE (my browser) pages turn blank and a message "this page cannot be displayed" appears in blue font. I have a Dell PC, windows 7, 62. I use a wireless NETGEAR WNA1100 Smart Wizard outside router to connect to the internet (via a Comcast router). Once I restore the PC to the status before the Windows update, there are no issues.
 
I selected the choice to select installing the Windows updates rather than having that being done automatically, however, but the updates continue to get installed any time I turn the PC down/on. Lately I resolved to forcefully close the PC risking to damage it.
 
Any assistance in this matter, greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks!

Hi. I'm not sure if the update was the cause of this, but Windows Update downloaded and installed about 11 important updates yesterday at 2:36pm and I randomly BSOD'd later that day. That was the only one I saw, but I found that my PC had rebooted overnight as well and the logs suggest that this is a recurring problem. The only other thing that was changed was switching my home internet from cable to DSL but I'm assuming that's totally unrelated.

Besides that, I can't think of any new programs I installed or any settings I changed. Any suggestions?

Does anyone know what these update do?

I have a friend who did the Important and Optional Windows Updates and now when he goes to the "Metro" window, the taskbar doesn't appear and disappear as it did before. It's now a permanent resident on the bottom of his monitor. He thinks this could be a buggy update.

I did only the Important Windows Updates and my taskbar is as it should be; it appears when I mouse down to it and disappears when I mouse away from it. I don't think I want to do the optional updates until I know what they do.

I'm wondering if KB2979500 could be the culprit. Or, for that matter, could KB2975719 be the problem? I'm not thinking 2975719 could be it, since it's been released before.

A:August Windows 8.1 Update KB2979500 and/or KB2975719

This is what I found.




Just found this. @4:40 PM August 2014 update rollup for Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2

This is what I found that it does. Looks like it mostly not for desktops.

Install this update to resolve issues in Windows. Precision touchpad improvements ? three new end-user settings have been added: Leave touch pad on when a mouse is connected; allow right-clicks on the touchpad; double-tap and drag.? Miracast Receive ? exposes a set of Wi-Fi direct APIs for Independent Vendor (IHV) drivers or OEM drivers to develop Windows 32-bit applications that run on all supported x86-based or x64-based versions of Windows 8.1, enabling the as a Miracast receiver.? Minimizing login for SharePoint Online ? reduces the number of prompts with federated use in accessing SharePoint Online sites. If you select the ?Keep me signed in? check box when you log on for the first time, you will not see prompts for successive access to that SharePoint Online site.Windows 8.1 update is not mandatory, but everyone running Windows 8.1 is strongly recommended to install it as soon as possible.

I have the same problem from the August updates but the suggested updates, KB2533523, KB2468871, KB2539636 all end with a Fatal Error.

The log is attached. (all three are the same in the error section) I have been working with MS and all of their suggestions on fixing Windows Update have failed also.

The three here ended with Error=2502 and Error=2503

I am signed in as the hidden admin to have all rights.

If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated.

As a former QA analyst I have and two (I think) very important clues for someone who knows Net Framework and Windows 7 update process better than I.

1. Is Net Framework there or is that what failed in the August restart?
My trail----
msconfig (doing a clean boot)
hide all Microsoft Services

Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN V4.0.30319 x86 AND x64 do not get hidden and the 'Manufacturer' is listed as UNKNOWN

Go to services
the V4.0.30319 x64 and x86 are there, delayed start, both stopped, both logon as local system account
the V2.0.50727 x64 and x 86 are both disabled.

Since the manufacturer is unknown it would seem to me partial failure during update lost some subset of needed data.

so

2. I run sfc /scannow to find corrupted dlls that sfc cannot fix.

The KB3081424 have been rolled out today for Windows 10, and it's a Cumulative Update. It'll update a lot of files that are coming out in users' SFC and DISM scans as corrupted. Installing it could fix these files, so I suggest you to install it.Cumulative Update for Windows 10: August 5, 2015This update includes nonsecurity-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements.Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see KB 3074683). If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer.

Check your settings.  There are a lot of new settings in every category.  I only went through System and Privacy, so far.  Am taking a break now.  This stuff makes my eyes glaze over with all the bizarre organization, so I can't even tell you what the changes are.

Perhaps I am overreacting but I checked my Windows Updates and I have them set to manually let me install them but automatically download.

So I used check for updates and it checked but didn't return any new updates and provided no message after checking just the list of older updates which are not critical only small things like time zone adjustment still remain in my list.

Now I do know that my XP OS on my other computer will for some odd reason delieve my Windows Updates on the wednesday after patch tueday, but I can't recall if this has been the case on this Windows 7 PC.

I would think that manually checking for the new August updates would find them but it was not the case.

Any insight appreciated.

I do want to add that I use MSE and I DID receive an update for it today since I see that it is installed on 8/13. So I wonder what is going on here? I'm correct in understanding that WUAUCLT.exe DOES service both Windows update and MSE updates correct?

Since I look when I get home, I am unsure if they would be available after 12:01...

I'm hoping somebody might be able to advise me on an issue I'm having. I'm not the most techy so I'm hoping I can explain it accurately.

It seems to be (from what I have discovered) linked to the Windows 10 Cumulative Updates.

Issue 1 began on the 28/01/16 as soon as Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3124262) was installed

I noticed that there was now a delay of about 30-40 seconds between switching the laptop on and the Windows log in screen appearing. During this time is the annoying rotating circle.
Then once my username and password were entered, there was another longer delay (complete with rotating circle) before taking me to the desktop.

Issue 2 began a few days later when Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3135173) was installed. I no longer had access to the windows start menu (I had to right click) or the Action menu. Issue 1 also persisted.

I did some googling and discovered that these issues may be because of the updates themselves (not installing properly) and found the page for a manual download for (KB3135173)

I'm just wondering if I did the right thing. I uninstalled (manually) both the Cumulative and security Updates for (KB3124262) and (KB3135173) and manually reinstalled (KB3135173) .

Microsoft is rolling out the first cumulative package of non-security-focused updates and fixes for Windows 10 one week after the company began making available to users the release-to-manufacturing (RTM) version of the operating system.

Referred to by some company watchers as "Service Release 1," the actual update package is officially known as KB3081424. (Thanks to The Verge's Tom Warren for a pointer to the KB.)

There's not a lot of information so far about what's in today's update, which Microsoft is delivering via Windows Update.

I had that also with this update.
So here is what I did to get over it.
I restarted it then ran the Disc Clean Up app
Which cleared all traces from the Disc
Then let it download and install, which took some time
Then it installed to 30% then Restarted then finished at 100%
Which again sat there for some time then flashed up it had finished and now running all ok on all my systems

Hello,

Here's how to install balky Windows 10 cumulative patch KB 318986

I'm seeing posts all over the web from folks trying to install the latest Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) cumulative update. KB 3189866 is supposed to bring Windows 10 AU to build 14393.187, but reports say the installer gets stuck at 45 percent, 48 percent, 95 percent, and various other points along the way.

The problem's widespread, and Microsoft has known about it since shortly after the patch dropped. Since it's a cumulative update, there's no easy solution.

Microsoft will certainly figure out what's blocking the patch, but in order to fix it the company will have to release a new cumulative update. Unless it can find a magic way to modify a released cumulative update, the only solution is a new cumulative update that absolves the sins of the original. That's one of the big problems with these massive, one-way "as a service" patches. It's also a totally predictable problem, as I've been saying for almost two years.

"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.

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 cumulative update KB3097617 earlier today and the first reports pointing to problems experienced during installation or even after that are already reaching the web.

For example, a number of users who turned to Microsoft's Community forums explain that KB3097617 fails to install on their PCs, undoes all changes and then restarts the machine, pushing it in an infinite reboot loop just like it happened with previous cumulative updates.

Microsoft user Darkc0de explains what happens on his Windows 10 computer:

?The update is just not installing, after asking for a restart windows update, initializes goes till 30% Then PC restarts and from 30, goes till 54% and restarts again this time it says We Could Not complete undoing changes and updates 2- 3 Team PC restarts again saying undoing changes and finally finally PC starts.?

It's Patch Tuesday, and that means software updates for all. New cumulative updates are rolling out for Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and phones, bringing the build number to 10586.318.

It's available for everyone, including non-Insiders as well as Insiders that are using the Release Preview ring. This update skips over the last one - build 10586.240 for PCs and 10586.242 for Mobile - which shipped to the Release Preview ring, but never to Production.

As with most cumulative updates, there are no new features. Instead, the new build focuses on fixes and stability improvements.

Here's what's new in build 10586.318 for PCs:

Improved reliability in a number of areas including Cortana, Bluetooth, Shell, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Miracast, and USB.
Fixed memory leak that occurs when opening a portable document format (PDF) form multiple times.
Fixed issues with text alignment for right to left languages in Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge.
Fixed issue that affected Bluetooth function when a PC resumes from sleep.
Fixed issue where user accounts weren't locked out after a number of failed sign in attempts.
Fixed issue with revised daylight saving time.

I would change it back and then see if you are then able to install the update.
If it still does not do it then you can always revert back to what you changed

Microsoft has just rolled out a new cumulative update for PCs running Windows 10 preview builds, so if you?re not part of the Insider program, you?re not going to see it.

What?s odd with this update is that it takes the version number to Windows 10 14393.82, which the exact same version that another cumulative update released by the company earlier this week brought. In fact, Microsoft even says that if you have the old update running on your computer, you?re not going to see the new one, which is kind of weird, given the fact that it also includes an exclusive change.

Microsoft explains that this new update brings the same fixes as the previous one, with just one exception, but because you can?t see it, you?re not going be able to get this improvement - the chances are that it?ll be part of another cumulative update planned for the next weeks, so you should receive it anyway at some point in the near future.

?We have released Cumulative Update (KB3176934) to Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14393 on PCs which will bring the build number to 14393.82. This Cumulative Update includes the same fixes as KB3176932 but with an additional fix: Improved download size optimization of updates,? Microsoft explains.

Could be released to retail users soon

What?s also interesting is that these cumulative updates are currently available for insiders only, so retailer users are very likely to get them in the coming weeks when all the testing is completed.

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 cumulative update KB3194496 for computers running 1607 last week, but as we reported recently, there are plenty of users out there who are experiencing problems when trying to install it.

While this isn?t surprising at all given the fact that similar issues were spotted with many other cumulative updates, Microsoft has already confirmed that it?s investigating reports and that a fix is on its way.

Fortunately, someone on the Microsoft Community forums has found a workaround for this problem in order to successfully install the cumulative update on any Windows 10 computer.



The workaround
What you need to do is to fire up File Explorer and delete the entire folder at the following location (administrator privileges are needed, so make sure you are logged in with an admin account):


Code:
C: > Windows > System32 > Tasks > Microsoft > XblGameSave
After that, launch the Registry Editor by typing regedit.exe in the Start menu and delete the following registry key ? once again, administrator privileges are needed to do this:


Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > WindowsNT > CurrentVersion > Schedule > TaskCache > Tree > Microsoft > XblGameSave
According to users who have already tried this, all you need to do next is to launch Windows Update once again and try to download and instal... Read more

A:How to Fix Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3194496 Installation Issues

Also, if you have completely uninstalled (deleted) XBox and all associated items from your system, then KB3194496 will not install.

To get KB1394496 to install, you have to completely re-install XBox - and not forget to install all associated items.

There is a DISM re-install package method for advanced users, and then for everyone else there is a clean install of Windows 10.

Don't you just love it... ?

* * * * *

The better solution is to disable Windows Update service and only re-enable it to install any cumulative updates -- after waiting for at least two months for a "fixed" cumulative update.

Some of those who were offered the new cumulative update are reporting problems when attempting to install it, and the way it happens looks very similar to what others have experienced in the past.

In most of the cases, the cumulative update fails to install, and it simply rolls back before getting users back to the desktop. The update is then reoffered and redownloaded before the system is once again rebooted to attempt the install.

Users who couldn?t install the original KB3189866 update were confident that this new one fixes the problems, so they rushed to install it.

?I have already read some issues with this update and that you should install the offline updater. It has the same problem. Microsoft released KB3193494 to resolve the download issue, so I tried again. Still the same problem,? one of them explains on Microsoft?s Community forums.



Post-installation problems
Others are reporting issues spotted after the update successfully installed on their computers and upon removal, everything seems to be returning to normal, which is living proof that this latest cumulative update is the source of the problems.

Microsoft officials say the latest Windows 10 cumulative update fixes problems some users were having with Windows Store. What else is in it? We have no idea.
 
The newest cumulative update is KB3081438. The Microsoft Support page says nothing about the specific features and fixes that are new to this update beyond "This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10."

A:Microsoft's third Windows 10 cumulative update said to fix Store issues

"This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality"
Any update with a vague description like that should be considered suspicious. If I were offered an update worded like that for my windows 8.1 machine I would definitely refuse it, if they won't say what it is for it is either not important or not pleasant. Remember that this is the sort of language which was the wording used for the KB page of kb3035583 when it was first released (it's page has been updated since to give a more accurate description of what it does, but when that update first came out it's page was all vague like that).

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3194496)

Three days ago my desktop tried to update 1607 3 times. Each time on reboot it says failed to update and reverts. Each day it tries again at shutdown.

Yesterday my second(son's) computer updated and all I could see was a black screen with a circle. Had to do a repair and it reverted back 2 two updates. Note, this computer does not have integrated graphics - so that fix process would not work.

Now the wife's computer wants to update but I am not restarting it - if hers goes down it will be hell in my household.

I looked on the web and don't see much about this update getting fixed by Microsoft. Any ideas what I should do? My main computer is asking to try again and it will just fail or worse - black screen. I told the family not to shutdown the wife's but I know at some point it will try to do the update on its own.

This is the worst mess we have ever had, but all I see are web pages about the anniversary update - not this one.

Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3197954 Fails to Install as Well

Windows 10 cumulative updates are certainly pretty helpful for the majority of users running Microsoft?s latest OS version, but at the same time, they are turning into sort of nightmare for others who can?t simply install them successfully.

Issues with Windows 10 cumulative updates have been around for a while, and Microsoft has tried to fix them on several occasions, but for some reason, they keep coming back pretty much in the same form.

KB3197954 makes no exception, and after being pushed to Windows 10 users last week, it appears that it fails to install on a number of machines due to a cause that?s yet to be determined.

More than just installation issues
Posts on Microsoft?s Community forums are pointing towards various problems experienced with cumulative update KB3197954, including system freezes, but in most of the cases, it?s the typical ?failing to install? issue that makes it impossible for some users to deploy the patch on their computers.

?Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3197954) keeps failing to install on my system. The install starts fine but while restarting claims the install has failed and reverts everything.

Hi,
The Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3116900) Failed to Install,
It showed a split second error code on the windows loading screen (The black Screen with windows logo and the loading dots.) and then on the second screen it said windows couldn't install this update, rolling back changes and things and went back to desktop and in Updates the Update is listed as "Failed to Install"

I tried the normal measures of Disable Av and Trouble shoot the Updater.
If any one has any other ways to get this update installed, then please share.

Microsoft's first cumulative update for Windows 10 - KB3081424 - is causing havoc for some users. How do I know this? Because I spent a good part of my Sunday morning dealing with it, that's how.

The problem, in a nutshell, is that the update puts affected systems into an endless crash loop. The update tries to install, gets to a certain point, fails, and then displays the unhelpful "We couldn't complete the updates, undoing the changes."

If it stopped there things wouldn't be too bad, but because Microsoft now forces updates onto Windows 10 users, the OS kept trying - and failing - to install the update, which in turn placed the system into a periodic crash/reboot loop that put quite a dent in my productivity.

I have a Windows 10 system upgraded from Win7. Windows Update failed on this recent cumulative update. The web has lots of hits about this. After trying a number of fixes, the following worked for me:

1. I went into Disk Management and saw that my System Reserved Partition was 100MB vs the minimum recommended (according to some sites) of 400MB.

2. I used MiniTool Partition Wizard (free edition) to resize the System Reserved Partition to 450MB. That required burning a CD from a downloaded ISO.

3. Since the Windows update failed again, I deleted the contents of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download (I did NOT delete the DOWNLOAD folder itself, just the contents)

4. BINGO! The update installed.

Hope this helps someone else who may have this problem.

Microsoft rolled out a new Windows 10 cumulative update for PCs running version 1607 (Anniversary Update), and just as we reported yesterday, there were plenty of users who experienced installation issues.

In a post on the firm?s Community forums, Microsoft engineers confirm the installation problems and explain that the team is already investigating and developing a fix.

?Investigating?
There are no details as to when exactly this new cumulative update fix could be released, but it?s worth noting that Microsoft itself says that there?s no point in trying to install this cumulative update because it?ll keep failing anyway.

?Teams have dug into this issue and do believe the cause has been identified. The correct team is developing a fix/workaround and once we have the full details, we'll be posting that information. For your affected machines, there's no need to keep attempting the install. It'll keep failing. In the mean time, hold tight! We're all over this and will keep sharing information along the way,? Microsoft says.

Several company engineers have already joined the discussion thread on the Community forums, asking for more details on the problem, so it?s very clear that the firm is actively investigating the problem.

What?s more frustrating, however, is that this cumulative update actually experienced the exact same issues when being tested ... Read more

Recent (Oct 15th) huge number of security updates, caused grief on 32bit Vista SP2 which I have narrowed down to the IE8 Cumulative Security Update by a process of elimination re-applying patchsets & testing the box.

With IE8 cumaltive security, in Stage 3 of "Configuring Update" it seems to be stuck at 0%, the chime occurs, but after a while the screen blanks, and the hardware resets a little later causing a reboot.

Updated ATI Radeon Video driver to latest has been to no avail; the machine seems solid in use and is also running Linux (and updated an old install with 10 months of patches) perfectly. Checking BIOS & drivers are up to date hasn't turned anything up, and the box and install generally solid. I tried booting with 'Safe options' to configure the update, but that did not help, so it would appear unlikely the resets are a driver issue.

Whilst I have the system back through system restore to checkpoint before the update, and have now hidden this patch, this leaves me with an insecure IE8.

1) Can I report the problem with the update anywhere?
2) Could I obtain smaller patchsets to find the likely culprit?
3) Can I downgrade IE8 to IE7?

Obviously I can use FF-3.5 for normal browsing, but some Windows programs & sites try to force use of IE, so the security issue does matter. This has caused much inconvenience and time, to a relatively tech savvy user, so one would hope a cumumaltive patch becomes available which does not have t... Read more

Windows 10 cumulative update KB3194798 is failing to install for some users, but on the other hand, a number of those who actually manage to deploy it successfully are reporting a different bug.

Disk Cleanup is reporting a disk size of 3.99 TB after installing this cumulative update and users are claiming that this is happening no matter how much storage they have on their computers.

?Disk Cleanup listed the size of the Windows Update files that could be deleted as 3.99 TB, yes terabytes! What was shocking was the fact that I only have a 250 GB SSD drive on my laptop, one PC has a 256 GB SSD main drive and a 2 TB secondary, and the third has a 500 GB SSD with a 2 TB secondary drive,? one user explained on Microsoft?s Community forums.

In most of the cases, cleaning the disk still works correctly, although some are complaining that it still takes too long to complete. The process indeed seems to be rather slow after installing this cumulative update, but other than the incorrect data size, no issue appears to be caused to Disk Cleanup.

Installation issues
Microsoft hasn?t yet acknowledged the bug, and a workaround is not yet available, but the company is very unlikely to fix the problem too fast since it doesn?t cause anything beside the incorrect data size in Disk Cleanup.

On the other hand, Microsoft must look into reports of cumulative update KB3194798 failing to install, as... Read more

This is an interesting move. So those running 7 and 8, how do you feel about this move?



What Microsoft won't be doing after October, however, is shipping the individual hotfixes any more. Fixes will only be available through the Monthly Rollup or security-only update. This means that the ability to pick and choose individual fixes to apply will be removed; they'll be distributed and deployed as a singular all-or-nothing proposition. Microsoft argues that this will improve patch and system reliability.Click to expand...

In a surprise move (to me at least), Microsoft has issued a Cumulative Update to holdouts who turned down the November 2015 Update or those who were unable to Update due to technical issues. This Update offers a whole package of fixes and improvements. Microsoft pushes out batch of cumulative updates for Windows 10 | Windows Central Issues? Bugs? Solutions? For all things Build 10240.17113 of Windows 10. Discuss it here. Basic tip
If you're having any issues with your device, try a reset.
Settings > Update & security > Recovery > Reset this PC > This provides you with two options: 1. keep my files and 2. remove everything Keep my files
Does just as its name describes. If you choose the setting you can reinstall Windows 10 without having to back up any of the pictures, videos, music and documents that you have stored on it. You absolutely should back up these things just in case, but you shouldn’t need to use that back up. Keep My Files requires a certain amount of free space on your device. As such, it may be unavailable to you if your device is stuffed with a lot of files. If you get an error message asking for more storage when you choose this option you’ll need to back up your files and choose the remove everything option. You could also delete any files that you aren’t using on your device and try the option again. This option will take longer than the other options. Remove Everything
Deletes every file, every setti... Read more

Windows Update will not update and I've tried multiple fixes
I have Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit OS. I have researched multiple "fixes" on this site, and still cannot get it to function properly.
Some of the patches are using a Standalone Installer. When they are engaged, it searches for updated files, and that's all it does.
I have a new install from an image at Fujitsu tech made on 13 Oct 2016
Can anyone assist me in fixing this situation.

I have a Fujitsu Fujitsu Lifebook SH-782 Laptop. It's about 4 years old.

Thanks!

Per this article, Microsoft claims that Windows update will download Office updates for the user:

Update Office and your computer with Microsoft Update - Office Support

On three different computers I've configured it this way, and none of them have ever downloaded an Office update. It's annoying to have to manually do it all the time.

Have any of you had any luck updating Office via Windows update? If you have, please share any things that you've done to make it work. Thanks.

I'm having no luck installing KB2977629 (Cumulative Security Update IE11). I repeatedly get the error 8007371B.

SURT installs with no errors. SFC /SCANNOW runs with no errors. I am uploading the requested screenshots and ZIP file.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!!!!

PS- well, I WAS uploading. My screencaptures upload great, but my CBS.zip fails with "Server error 500".
My zip file is 9.6mb-- over the 8mb limit. What can I delete from the directory to get under the 8mb limit?
