Can't update, repair or uninstall Dell Command Update on Windows 10

Q: Can't update, repair or uninstall Dell Command Update on Windows 10

I've noticed broken fonts in Dell Command Update on my Latitude E6440, so I can neither update software or drivers nor uninstall command update.

Could anyone help me resolve this issue?
Additionaly, I have WiDi issues, but I'd like to resolve them by driver update. Unfortunately, I can't update anything using provided utility due to broken GUI.

Hello,first of all I am sorry for my bad English. Now about my problem. I have Dell Latitude 3350 laptop and everytime I search for drivers updates in Dell command update, Intel chipset device software update appears. I installed it, it says "succesfully installed", I restarted the laptop and then it appears again in Dell command update. Details of update: Version, A01, release date 17 Jun 2016, filename: Chipset_Driver_320CP_WN32_10.1.1.9_A01.EXE. Filesize 10 MB.And the same problem in Dell shows again and again Intel management engine components installer, version,A00. Filename: Chipset_Driver_78C1C_WN32_11.0.0.1158_A00.exe. Filesize: 98 MB.So can anybody help me to resolve install problems of these updates, please? Thank you in advance for you reply.

Hey Guys

I am attempting to repair a Dell Inspiron 5520 Laptop for a friend of mine.

He's been having issues updating it for sometime and when he called me he was having a "Windows update needs your help. Windows update hasn't been able to check for new updates for 30 days" pop-up appearing every few seconds that was rendering the laptop almost unusable.

I managed to stop that by disabling automatic updates.

When I attempted a manual update I got the message

Windows could not search for new updates: Error Found Code 80070BC9

Other times it would say it needed to be restarted and would go into a restart loop that was generally
Restart one - no message
Restart two - configuring updates - 33%, 67%, 100%
Restart three - failed to configure updates - reverting - restarting
Then would go to the normal login screen

I tried SFC /Scannow which seemed to work and say a restart is needed to implement changes but then fails on restart

DISM didn't work when attempting to run it from the machine but got to 100% when I ran it from my own Win8 install disk but then failed and needed a restart to undo the changes.

I also tried a repair and a restore of the current Windows installation but got:
Error Code: 80070490 both times

I'm really not sure what to try next, the laptop didn't come with an install disk or serial so it seems restoring it from external media may be out of the question?

Any help is much appreciated!

Hello folks - first post, so you have my apologies if I don't quite get the format correct.I did a search for this problem and didn't find anything - my apologies again if this type of problem has already been addressed.First of all, I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate with SP1 (32 bit) on a Dell Latitude D830 with 2.20GHz processor and 4GB RAM.A short while back, a command box has been flashing every twenty or thirty seconds with a heading having something to do with Windows Update (from what I can read, the cmd box comes and goes very quickly).

I am the local admin and the domain admin. This error pops up when I try to reinstall Office (Office updates fail) or update QuickBooks or Adobe or any other program on there.

iTunes 12.5x will not install on my Windows 10 desktop. I download the latest iTunes version and then get the error below, multiple times.

I read up on the error. The recommendation to cure the problem was to go to Programs, Uninstall, but instead Repair the Apple Software Update application.

I tried that, right-clicked to Repair ASU, but then I got a message saying that ASU was already uninstalled. I cannot now find Apple Software Update application to re-install it. I've looked all over the Apple and Windows download systems. No luck.

I've seen several posts on this subject over time and have had a problem myself. This was my solution and it could help others.

I could not update Office 2003 to SP2. So, I tried repairing and I tried uninstalling. Kept getting message about process not finding install .msi file and cabs.

Then tried reinstalling, but got same message.

Appears MS treats updates to Office 2003 as patches. When repairing or uninstalling it looks for "patches." It apparently wants to roll back these "patches" to get at the repair or uninstall process of the original install.

MS keeps "patch" information in \Program Files\OfficeUpdate11 folder.

I went to that folder and found it was empty of .msi and update information. Apparently I had deleted the information (had a crash and restored a backup).

So I went into the registry to look for patches.


I ran regedit and went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE;CLASSES;INSTALLER;PRODUCTS, I looked for the product code of MS Office 2003.

Product codes are 32-character hex keys. You can find the Office 2003 guid product codes in MS Knowledge base item 832672.

Once you find the product code in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE;CLASSES;INSTALLER;PRODUCTS, click on the 32-character code and if there is a PATCHES folder, click on it and see if the data information specifies... Read more

Hi all,
I have a HP pavilion dv3 and I have upgraded to and downgraded from windows 10 a couple of times now because of this problem.

The problem is that windows update makes an automatic update and screws the bootup, which gives an error saying 0x0000.... Memory could not he written.

Last 2 times I restored the computer to an earlier time, but this time there is no resort point!! Now I'm stuck with the blue screen flashing where what should be the logon screen.

Can someone please help me spot and delete the update? Or undo it somehow? I really have lots of software on it and do not want it to be deleted, so can't resest PC.

What can I do? Is there a fix to this logonUi application error? Please let Me know as it I'd slowing down my work!!

(I think that according to what I've read on other sites, the problem is with switchable graphics, whose driver was probably updated. So any help? Can I install another windows on top of this, uninstall update and then try booting?)

Thanks for reading through

Using Dell Command Update on my XPS 13 9350, the Intel 100 series chipset driver ver. keeps coming up as a recommended update and after installing it, and then checking again for updates, it comes up again as a recommended update, so the installation is not succeeding.  Having said that, it now appears in the update history (in the Command Update app) as having been installed 3 times, so what gives, Dell?

I hope someone has a solution for this. A while back I installed Windows XP KB931836-x86-enu.exe which is the daylight savings time fix on a couple hundred workstations. I have one workstation that the time did not move forward an hour. The time zone under date and time properties is correct and automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes is selected. Resetting the clock works until the next day, then it resets to an hour before the correct time. I tried reinstalling the update, but get the message that itís already installed. I went to add/remove programs to try an uninstall and itís not there! I went into the Windows folder looking to see if the uninstall file might be there, but itís not.

My screen started freaking out today. The display gets all wavy and weird and then it goes black, then after 10 seconds its back to normal then it goes haywire again. The only difference I have between yesterday and today is that I installed a windows automatic update. My computer has two different video chips, an integrated video card and a nvidia card. This problem only effects the nvidia but when I reboot using integrated video, I have no problems. I suspect something in the windows update is messing with my nvidia display drivers but I am not sure. How do I determine what the last automatic update was and remove it?

Hello all.
Running windows 10 pro 64 bit.
I've updated from Version 1511 to the anniversary update, 1607.
Or at least, I thought I did.
The update went well, no hiccups, no errors. Used windows update, let it downloaded and install and rebooted. Alas, system still shows OS Version 1511.
Used update again, same thing, rebooted, 1511.
Went to the windows site, downloaded the windows10upgrade9252.exe, ran it, same exact issue, rebooted, still showing version 1511.
Error logs show no issues. Disabled all external drives, turned off anti-virus, etc, repeated, rinsed, rebooted, still version 1511.
Only think I've not done is burned an ISO to DVD and updated from that.
Any clues as to what's going on?

My laptop (running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit) has recently been failing to boot properly after updating Windows, and it always goes into startup repair after booting incorrectly. I can get my laptop to work by halting start-up repair and restoring to a point before windows updated, but I'll just encounter the same problem later when Windows updates again. Is there any way to fix this, and how would it be fixed?

Are you running any antivirus or firewall software? It might be interfering with the update process. Try uninstalling it first.

You'll need to install the updates one by one until you find which update is causing the system to crash. Once you find it, just right click the update and choose hide update.

Download Fatdog64. Burn the iso to disk by right clicking on a Windows 7 and later computer and selecting burn disk image. You can use Rufus with the iso to create a bootable USB flash drive. Backup any data on the flash drive first. Depending on your computer, attach the flash drive and tap the key to bring up the boot menu and select the flash drive or DVD drive.
At the Fatdog64 desktop you will see your hard drive partitions in the lower left labeled sda1..sda2..etc. Clicking once on the sdaX icon will open a File Manager. If you do not see your Windows files close out the window and select another sdaX partition. For Windows 10 the partition may be sda3. 
Once you have selected the correct partition attach a USB flash or external drive to the computer. A USB icon will appear next your DVD drive if you have one. Click once on it to mount and open another File Manager Window. Drag and move both windows until they are side by side. You can resize the windows by left clicking and dragging a corner.
Highlight the files/folders you wish to copy by holding the Ctrl key + left clicking. You can also Left Click and Window around the files/folders. Once you have highlighted your files/folders drag them from the HDD Window to the USB external Window. A small dialog window will open. Select Copy and check the Quiet box.
Edit: you only need to click once to open any folder.

I have Dell XPS Q6600 with Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit.
I recently had a major startup failure, which the root cause is still unknown to me(but if I had to guess it was a virus). I tried several things to fix that issue and none of them resolved it, so I did a repair install off my Vista reinstall dvd, which installed service pack 1.
After the fresh install, I went to run windows update to catch up on the last 4 years of updates, and a few of the updates installed, but the majority did not. Each time I try to install the remaining 89 updates I get 3 errors, Code 80070570, Code FFFFFFFE and Code 8007001F.
I have tried just installing 1 update at a time and get an error each time, I get Code 80070570 when I try a single update install.

Another problem that I have(that I assume is related) A few minutes after I startup my computer I get an error message that says "Host process for windows services stopped working and was closed".
I have read online for solutions and have tried many things(but am willing to try anything and everything again). I read about trying to manually install updates, or download them off the MS website. I was able to download and install Service Pack 2 by doing that, but still have 89 updates I need to install.
Any help or solutions would be greatly appreciated. And just let me know if there is any information you need from me.

A:Can't use Windows Update after a repair install

If you receive Windows Update error FFFFFFFE, it means that an update can't be installed because of a problem on your computer.
This problem is usually caused by a malware (malicious software) infection. To prevent your computer from becoming unstable, Windows won't install the update.

I tried updating Windows Live Mail to the latest version using the web installer, but it kept failing and rolling back the installation. I then downloaded the full offline installer, but the same issue occurred.

I decided to uninstall Windows Live Essentials so I could try and install the latest versions of Mail and Messenger. The uninstall completed (or it seemed to), but while Messenger was gone, Windows Live Mail was still on my computer and functioning normally.

I then tried running the offline installer again. It didn't recognise that Mail was installed (as usually it says "the following programs will be updated: Mail") and the installation of Mail fails every time with one of the following errors: -

Couldn't install these programs: Mail

An unknown error occurred.

After turning on my computer today, I noticed that the "shut down" icon in start menu had the familiar triangle referring to updates. I closed things down and selected it to "Shutdown and install updates". I keep my Windows as up to date as i can, so this was a recent update.

The problem is that upon starting the computer, I could get to the log in screen with both the Administrator and user accounts visible, but when attempting to select either one to log in, the screen flickers black once for a half-second, then kicks me back to the user select screen. How can i undo this last update without logging in? I tried inserting the windows disk to use the system restore feature, but it claims that "No restore points have been created on your computer's system drive" yet as far as I've seen, each update has been initiated with a "creating system restore point" loading bar, so how can this be? I've attempted logging in in safe mode as well. The same black screen, it just took longer before I got kicked back.

Any tips? Or additional information I can provide?

Edit - If possible, does anyone know of a program or command that can bypass the log in screen and immediately log in? Maybe if I could do that and get into the system itself, I could undo the upgrade on my user account.

Well, you can use something like Hiren's Mini XP to remote edit the registry and create auto login keys for your system. Google "Auto login windows 7" and the links should point you to the correct keys to create/edit.

This doesn't sound like a log in issue to me though. It sounds more like corruption/hard drive failure. Run a chkdsk /r in recovery console and see if that helps.

Hey have a couple quick questions...In my Windows directory I have a enormous amount of Windows Update Uninstall Files "$NTUninstallKB00000$" These look like they are uninstalls for all the updates, security and so on for 4 years now. Why would I need these I have never uninstalled a single update, I only update what is needed? And can I safely delete if unneeded?

I am running Windows XP Home SP2, CPU 1.70Ghz, 512 Ram. 84% Free Space

Also I have in my Windows Directory a folder named Installers...With 450 MB approx of .MSI files amd .MSP files., are these necessary? none have been modified or accessed in 2 or more years. Anyone know?

It seems that windows update is not working after I Uninstalled KB3035583 to get rid of the Win 10 icon.
Win 7 ultimate SP1 on a Gigabyte GA-P43T-es3g board. I can go to the control panel and click on check for updates and all it checks for a long time and finally shows "windows 10, download and install! No other updates installed since 08/09/2015. I think have it set to "download but let me install". I have Office 2007 also so it should have updates for that too.

Now spent over 8 hours on this and still no resolution. Tried SFC online and offline, Windows Update Troubleshooter, In-place install -- these all fail. I've checked TrustedInstaller, ran half dozen anti-malware apps -- nothing. System Restore, no change.

I do not want to do a clean install because I have old programs I need that no longer have install media. Any more ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I did a repair install of XP, and I thought that after that I would see tons of windows updates to install (because apparently the repair install reverts you?) But I checked windows updates and I don't see any - it says the windows is totally up to date. (Well, I did see a couple drivers, but nothing beyond that.)
Is this ok, or do I have to manually apply some updates or something? Computer properties says SP3 even though the xp cd I used for the repair install was an sp2 cd.

A:After a repair install, is it ok if windows update has no updates?

Yes, Windows XP disks are confusing. The disks are so poorly worded and put together that many accidently press R and drop to console or do a destructive install when they wanted to do a non-destructive install. Recovery console is typically used to repair things that can't be fixed any other way such as fixmbr, fixboot, edit a config file, diskpart. However, in recovery console you can initiate a system restore from a restore point through the recovery console by using the command %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe will repair the pc from an earlier date.
After pressing enter and pressing F8 for the agreement you get to the window you need to be on. From there is the big decision to do a destructive install or try a R for repair install, which generally should only reinstall windows OS and leave everything intact. If there isn't a R option on that page then the disk itself doesn't have that option or, the OS is completely destroyed and it can't even detect a windows OS installed. That might be due to a MBR corruption of some sort. Which is the reason to have a recovery console to try to repair issue's like that.
Sometimes the disk will complain that what's installed differs from the disk. Generally you want to use the same disk that was used to originally install the OS. You can sometimes get around this using a disk that matches the OS. Since it's a non-destrcutive reinstall in theory it shouldn't touch the sp2 or the sp3. It should only replace the cor...

Windows 7 Update taking forever to find new updates? Here's how to fix it, at least until the next patchday (probably August 8).
Thanks to Jim Kim for finding this. (source)

Here's how to check whether or not you have an update already installed in Win7:
1. Open Windows Update control panel
2. Click "View update history" on the left
3. Click the link for "Installed Updates"
4. In the upper right corner of the window, the search bar should now say "Search Installed Updates". There, start typing the number of the update you want to look for, including the KB. For example, type KB3168965 - typing 3168965 will not work, you have to start with KB.

In my particular case, of all of the updates listed on that page I was only missing KB3168965 and KB3164033 on my Win7 x64 volume, and Windows Update was taking forever to find updates. Installing them fixed the issue.

1.  Windows 10 upgrade completed and computer worked OK until it ran automatic updates.
2.  Now system tries auto repair at startup, cannot repair, then gives option to troubleshoot.

4.  Go Back to previous build will not work.
5.  Reset of PC will not work.
Assume I will need to reinstall to factory default, but first need to copy user files.
1.  When going to command prompt, users, I only see public user so I don't see user documents to copy.
Right now main problem is to save user files and then reimage.
Does anyone have ideas of how best to copy user files so that I can move on with factory recovery.

Download Fatdog64. Burn the iso to disk by right clicking on a Windows 7 and later computer and selecting burn disk image. You can use Rufus with the iso to create a bootable USB flash drive. Backup any data on the flash drive first. Depending on your computer, attach the flash drive and tap the key to bring up the boot menu and select the flash drive or DVD drive.
At the Fatdog64 desktop you will see your hard drive partitions in the lower left labeled sda1..sda2..etc. Clicking once on the sdaX icon will open a File Manager. If you do not see your Windows files close out the window and select another sdaX partition. For Windows 10 the partition may be sda3. 
Once you have selected the correct partition attach a USB flash or external drive to the computer. A USB icon will appear next your DVD drive if you have one. Click once on it to mount and open another File Manager Window. Drag and move both windows until they are side by side. You can resize the windows by left clicking and dragging a corner.
Highlight the files/folders you wish to copy by holding the Ctrl key + left clicking. You can also Left Click and Window around the files/folders. Once you have highlighted your files/folders drag them from the HDD Window to the USB external Window. A small dialog window will open. Select Copy and check the Quiet box.
Edit: you only need to click once to open any folder.

Hi Folks

I an really, Really, REALLY getting annoyed with this.

This thread details the history of the issues over the past few weeks ... Black Screen after Windows Update (Windows 10) See in particular posts #17 and 18 of that thread.

I finally managed to get my Windows 10 installation working and eventually get it back to something like it was before the update borked the machine.

Now, the machine has reverted to its "repaired" state of a few days ago after a restart - all of the changes I made to the start menu and getting 'My Documents' and 'My Pictures' to point to the correct locations have been reset.

Can anyone say what is going on with this machine and OS installation?

Great info at this site so I hope someone can help me out. First off: I am running Vista Home SP1 on a Toshiba Satellite A135 with 2GB Ram. About 6 months ago, the Windows Update of SP2 got stalled and did not finish. Since then Windows Update has not been (for the most part) updating. Additionally, Windows Explorer crashes at least 1 out of every 4 sessions. Another symptom is that the CPU usage unexpectedly spikes and the computer runs hot. I have ignored this as long as possible but tonite it made video playback on Netflix extremely choppy and that was the last straw.

Here is what I have googled and done over the last 6 hours to attempt to fix this (I know just barely enough about computers to be dangerous to myself). I suspected my machine needed an update:

1) Tried again to install Windows updates but failed. Got 80070017 error. Thought it might be a corrupted registry file. Stupidly, I ran a program called Error End that I found at After the scan, I uninstalled Error End and went to CNET and found both Wise Registry Cleaner and Free Window Registry Repair. I had a ton of errors (1400 detected by Wise & 2000+ by FWRR) so I fixed them. Still no luck with Windows Update.

2) Found a post that made me suspect malware/virus which led me to a post on this forum. I then downloaded and ran rkill.exe with clean results. I updated Malwarebytes and ran full scan. Unfortunately, my ADD got the better of me and after 40 minutes running with 0 infections I st... Read more

A while back I installed Microsoft's FixIt for CVE-2013-3893 on my computers to protect against an active zero day exploit. Microsoft billed it as a temporary fix until they released the official solution through Windows Update, which they did. My question is, for this issue specifically, and generally, when Windows Update pushes out an update does that override Microsoft's fix it? In other words do I have to go back to each computer now and uninstall the FixIt or does the official update handle that automatically? If you know the answer can you please cite a source.


A:Uninstall a MS FixIt after the official windows update is released?

It's my understanding that when a permanent update is released it will automatically detect and uninstall/disable any temporary Fixits. I can't cite any specific sources other than my own personal experiences installing Fixits in the past, then installing permanent updates on top of the Fixits will no ill effects.

I guess if you'd rather not take a chance you could go back to the Fixit website and disable it yourself.

This is our 3rd attempt to update this laptop! We have done the following (3 times now) with the same failure to boot after the IE 11 install:
1) Boot with Windows 7 Pro (sp1) x64 CD and delete existing partitions. Create new partition and install Windows 7 Pro x64
2) Install DELL drivers for the PC (and reboot)
3) Perform Windows update (arduous task as there are 202 updates...takes hours to complete) (and reboot)
4) Install Acrobat / Flash / Java
5) Install Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 x64 (and reboot)
On reboot system goes directly into repair mode!

In one attempt we just did Windows 7 Pro x64, then Dell drivers, then updates, then IE 11. Still same thing. After IE 11 finishes and reboots the system goes directly into repair mode (and fails to repair. Just wants to email Microsoft about this issue but
doesn't give a clue WHY it won't boot.)

ANY suggestions for a fix for this are appreciated. We need IE 11 on this machine as all the websites the user needs for work require IE 11 to be working.

Also, it would be nice to know what IE 11 install does that causes this fatal boot issue! If I boot into Command Prompt mode I can see the drive and all the files (shows up as D: and everything is there!)

Hello, I've been have several issues with my laptop ever since I swapped over my faulty C drive by Ghosting it onto another HDD. My troubleshooters all fail to run when I try to start them and Windows Update will not work despite the fact that I've checked and re-checked that the service is running. I've run sfc twice now with reboots in between and I've tried to repair install windows 7 using the tutorial provided by this forum, but I keep running into errors while trying to fix the problem.

I do not want to run a clean install unless I absolutely have to, but repairing it doesn't seem to work. I have the CBS log and the error codes from the troubleshooters if you need them.

Is this the original Asus factory preinstall with the bloatware and duplicate utilities that have better versions built into Win7? If so this is a corrupt install to begin with that smothers Win7 native performance. So I'd stronglly consider doing the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 as you'd go from one of the worst possible installs to one of the best. Once you've done it you can preserve a backup image so you never have to do it again.

I play a lot of PC games, and in one particular game, I have been having a graphical glitch. This is apparently related to the Windows KB2670838 update, and many people on various forums have solved the problem by removing this update.

Fast Windows update method after Fresh Install or Repair

Especially usefull for Engineers.

Try Using AutoPatcher. (download from this site
and the latest is also available on Techspot

Autopatcher has monthly updates for XP, 2000, 2003 and x64.

download the updates starting with the full December 2005 through to Latest (usually last month). install each package starting with the full release but do not run autopatcher till you have installed all the downloads (autopatcher will append all the monthly updates and will install them all in one go).

Autopatcher allows you to select or deselect any update and will detect any updates you already have, it also installs updates like Java, msn messenger, macromedia flash player, aspi drivers, Latest windows media player, dotnet framework 1.1 and 2, and more.

Autopatcher also has useful tweaks and security settings, eg.. tweakui, show open with notepad on right click menu, put my computer,internet explorer,my documents, on desktop and more.

You simply select all the options you require then run autopatcher and it will do all the above and only restart one time when all operations are done.

As it is a stand alone program, you can copy the folder from program files directory and save to your USB flash drive, portable storage device, CD or DVD disk then execute the autopatcher.exe file to update any system you're working on.

Yesterday my laptop overheated, so I put it in a position to cool off and turned it on again 1 minute later. I went away and when I came back it was off (It clearly overheated again). I put it near my window and booted it up again and it booted into Startup Repair and ran its auto-fix (Which failed) and I went into System Recovery Options and I remembered that before it overheated the first time a Windows Update was qued. I figured it must have overheated the second time during the Windows Update. I tried 2 restore points and kept getting this error "An unspecified error occured during System Restore. (0x800700b7)".

However upon closer examination, the System Restore Options is telling me this "Operating System: Windows 7 on (D Acer". Note the D: - because I know for a fact my OS is indeed on D: (I checked using Command Prompt). The problem is System Restore is trying to restore the C: when it should be doing D:

I believe this to be the problem. I was wondering whether it is or isn't the problem, and how do I get System Restore to restore the D: and not the C:

(I have no backup disks of any kind so my personal files hang in the balance)

It all started pretty innocently. I first noticed a problem when the Windows update flag had a red marker on it. So I dug a little deeper to find out that Windows update was failing. It seems it could not do the check for updates any longer for some reason. This did happen suddenly and no recent changes were made to my system before this happened. I searched this forum and googled until the cows came home and ended up trying a few solutions that seemed reasonable - Deleting the contents of Software distribution, running CHKDSK. Neither of these helped. I tried another suggestion - sfc /scannow which could not run so I tried running it from a command prompt boot up. That did not work either. So, I kept going with the suggestions I have seen. I did find one suggestion to download the latest Windows Update readiness thingy from Microsoft which made the red splat on the windows update flag go away but still could not run windows update. Always comes back with the same error 80070002.

My last resort before contacting the forum was to try a windows upgrade from the original DVD that I got when I bought the system about 2 yrs ago. Well this did not help either as it fails after going through a bunch of preliminaries and then states 'The upgrade was canceled' 'setup can't continue'. Not sure if that spelling error on the 'canceled' is a clue to something bad?

You have some registry corruption which needs to be fixed before we can get a true picture of the situation with the files.

I need to have a look at your COMPONENTS registry hive

Please copy the C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS file (no extension) to your desktop and then compress it - upload the compressed file to your favoured fileshare site (preferably Dropbox or SkyDrive) and post a link.

I am trying to update from Windows 10 OS Build 10586.589 to the Anniversary Update but my computer freezes at 1% progress. I have tried everything I can think of including: Unplugging all extra SATA drives except my main SSD, unplugging my wireless network adapter, unplugging all USB devices (even mouse and keyboard), removing old drivers and updating outdated ones, and installing the update through a USB flash drive. It always gets to the same part and freezes until I shutdown my computer and lose no data.

You can see pictures of the frozen screen here:

Hi All
I'm trying to repair windows update feature in windows 8.1. I have a ton of programs installed on my new HP pc (bought 3/15) that took me months to get right. I really don't want to do a reinstall of 8.1 just to get the windows update to work.
Basically I have 11 updates dated from 9/14 to now that will not install no matter how many times I run the windows update troubleshooter. Most of the updates concern the .NET Framework for 4.5.1 and 4.5.2:

Then I have plain windows 8.1 updates KB2976978 and KB3000850.

I get the following error messages and I run the troubleshooter but the fixes don't stick.

I've contacted HP and they want to do a complete reinstall of 8.1. I've stressed to them that I don't want to do this because it will wipe everything. I've done the DISM restore health before and it gets stuck on 20% for hours before it finally finishes and tells me it fixed some but can't fix everything. I'm running the windows media installation creation tool onto a usb. Right now it will be done in 10 hours or less.

By the way, I have a Samsung laptop that I bought new in March of 2014 that is running the same version of windows 8.1 64-bit. It has installed all updates with no problem and I've reserved a copy of windows 10. Is there anyway I can fix windows update on my HP desktop using the settings/files from the Samsung laptop?

A:Using DISM to repair Windows update feature of Windows 8.1

HI All
My problem was solved through a combination of this thread and the following link:

For my situation I created installation media for windows 8.1. The winhelp link has instructions for using the installation media tool with (or without) a product key. I didn't have a product key because windows 8.1 came pre-installed on my new HP. I did download a free program called BeLarc Advisor to get the product key for my version of windows. I ended up not needing the product key after all to create the windows.iso file for installation.

I used Rufus to create a bootable usb drive with the windows.iso file from the installation media step.

I downloaded and tried to use the DISM GUI. Unfortunately, there was no install.wim file in the sources folder. I did have an install.esd file (which is the same as the install.wim). The DISM GUI did not work with the install.esd file and I didn't feel comfortable converting the .esd file to a .wim file.

This is the point where I abandoned the steps from this thread on the eight forums website and started at the "Reinstalling windows 8 or 8.1 without loosing personal files, installed programs or apps" portion of the winhelp link.

Please note that I shut off my mcafee protection (spyware and virus, web protection and firewall). I unplugged my printer, external DVD R drive and external hard drive. I also shut off spyware blaster and spyware terminator before I began my ... Read more

I had an issue with Outlook Express. Norton Antispam wouldnt integrate with it because it didnt see it as a valid email program after an install of Office. To restore Outlook Express back to a valid email program, i had to re-install Windows XP.

I re-installed it, with no problems, logged into windows no problem. However, im trying to run Windows update to get the latest patches, the scanner finds the updates, downloads them but doesnt install the updates. It fails on every update as soon as it tries to run the install. It says that there is a problem with my computer and wont install them.

I have gone to Windows Genuine and downloaded the Genuine Windows Advantage Tool and that doesnt seem to solve the problem. I have completed numerous reboots to get it to install the updates. I have even managed to download IE7 & Media Player 11, which installed fine. IE7 said it couldnt install the latest security patches for Internet Explorer, but it installed fine, and appeared on the start menu after a re-boot as normal. Both IE7 & Media Player are functioning correctly.

I do have Norton 2007 installed, and im wondering if that has anything to do with it. I even tried turning all of Norton off, and running it then, but again no joy.

Sorry for the essay..

Hello I have been troubleshooting my laptop computer problems for awhile now and I was searching the internet with no avail.
Firstly I own a HP 8710W Laptop with WIndows 7 Pro 64bit that uses the NVIDIA Quadro FX1600 M Graphics Driver.
My computer for some reasons unexpectedly shuts down. Sometimes my mouse disappears and I thought it had something to do with my memory, which I scanned and had no issues, neither with the hard drive. It then goes in start up repair repeatedly, finding no issues. Yet for some reason once it runs it, I am able to log into Windows, but only after the start up repair runs and finds no issues. I tried to do the start up loop registry fix, and even tried to use the Windows 7 disc to repair and nothing seems to work. Also note, SFC /scannow finds no issues as well. I then end up figuring it may have something to do with Windows Update. And I end up receiving this error shown in the screen shot. Note my brother has the same make and model and running the windows diagnostic it finds no issues. I am unable to figure out why these issues are happening. Does anyone else have any ideas and solutions for the fix? Thanks.
Note: I also have uploaded my error log files as well.

Over the last several days I have been attempting to update windows to 8.1. It starts, tells me that it is installing. At this point I have been unable to stay through the length of the install to see the point that the crash actually happens.

A:BSOD on DELL XPS when update to Windows 8.1

Generic advice (based on your problem description):

I've seen antivirus programs interfere - so remove any antivirus/internet security programs (temporarily) and use Windows Defender and the Windows Firewall while installing 8.1

Get ALL updates form the PC manufacturer
Then get ALL Windows Updates
Then do it all again 2 or 3 times - continue until you have all updates.
Then try again.

FWIW - it took me 3-4 months to finally be able to update to 8.1 on a new, Win8 system.

Specific advice (based on the reports that you submitted):

Your BIOS dates from 2008. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

Due to the age of the system, it is very likely that this system may not be compatible with 8.1 (and may even have problems with Win8). I have a Lenovo tablet (x61t) that has a 2008 BIOS and it won't work reliably w/Win8. If it is incompatible, you can either live with the "quirks", or you can downgrade to Win7/Vista in order to get a stable system.

Only 120 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 160 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

You have 4 hard drives. What is the make/model/wattage and age of you... Read more

Here is a link that Microsoft posts to fix the Windows Update error code 0x8024402C. Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues.It recommends to disable any Antivirus software, while trying to do the updates. You can also skip the update as you might have the updated software already installed on your Notebook. Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the program on your Notebook and it will help with any software and driver updates on your system.Please let me know how this goes.Thanks.

Hello and Thanks in Advance.

I am experiencing BSOD crashes and a buggy driver could be the culprit. Dell recommends updating the BIOS prior to the drivers.

I checked Dell's website and the current BIOS for my machine is A08 and my system at present is A05, so maybe this should be done anyway.

The BIOS update is just a .exe file.and its description is "Dell Computer Flash BIOS Upgrade."

I am afraid to run the BIOS update in "normal mode" because of these persistent crashes. Who knows what state my computer will be in if it crashes/freezes during a BIOS update.

My computer runs fine in "Safe Mode." Would it be OK to update my BIOS through Safe Mode so that I don't have to worry about my computer crashing in the middle of the update? Does the computer care if this is done through safe or normal mode? Should I log in as an administrator to do this also?

If anyone has any advice, I am all ears. Thanks!

They replied with the following:


Step 1: Verify the relevant Windows Update services
1. Click the "Start" Button in the "Start Search" bar, type: "services.msc" (without quotes) and press Enter. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
2. Double click the service "Windows Update".
3. Click on the "General" tab; make sure the "Startup Type" is "Automatic" or "Manual". Then please click the "Start" button under "Service Status" to start the service.
4. Please repeat the above steps with the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS).

You can also temporarily stop these services, restart the computer, and then start these services again. If any service is missing or cannot be stopped or restarted, please let me know.

Everthing works fine, except my wifi is giving me some trouble
Whenever there comes a windows update that requires reboot, wifi got disabled as if the wireless card is not detected from PC
It would just show a red X mark on the wifi icon
and if I click on it, there's no enable / disable option; same happens in the settings, wifi submenu is nowhere to be found
Then I head into device manager, and believe it or not there is no wireless adapter at all
At first I thought the wireless card is dead, but after some long research on the web it seems more likely to be just driver-related issue. Turns out that I would have to delete the driver (unhide devices appears wireless adapter), restart the PC, and reinstall driver manually from device manager
Wifi is temporarily functional again using this workaround, but it is also getting very frustrating that I have to repeat all these steps once in a while and I can't enjoy using it like a normal laptop.

I thought I cleaned up some malware that hit my computer last week, but it seems that there is still something on there. I would appreciate any help anyone could give.When trying to access McAfee update, an "Update Error" occurs saying, "An error occurred while updating. Please reinstall these programs: McAfee Virus Scan Plus."Also when trying to access Firefox update it says "Update server not found (check your internet connection)"When Adobe Flash plugin tries to update it says that I need to check my internet connection, and though I can access the internet, I cannot get the update to download.When in iTunes, I cannot access the iTunes store nor can I download any of my podcasts.When I try to use Internet Explorer, it says Internet explorer cannot display this page for any website I try to access, but Firefox seems to work.Malwarebytes and SpyBot scans run clean.It seems that I have something similar to what was posted about in: and have attached my hijackthis logI would appreciate any help you could provide.Thank you.

A:Can't access McAfee update, Firefox update, Flash update, iTunes store, IE, etc.
