Windows Update - Installs Same Updates On Shut Down - 0% Stuck
Sep 6, 2012
Ok over the past week or so windows has been installing the same 3 updates every night! Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit
So I checked to see if they failed and they were installed successfully!
I have ran 3 different MS Fixit things to no avail. I have tried to update the PC manually however it does not go past 0% on installing the updates it just says preparing updates.
I tried adding 2 optional updates to make it 5 and manually clicking update however it sticks on 0% downloading updates.
I am usually pretty good at troubleshooting and fixing PC problems however this one I am defeated! I do not want to restore if possible, will this take away ANY of my files e.g work I have done I have never had to do it before!
I will start by saying I built the machine myself and originally I thought it was a ram stick, found one that I took out and the freezing stopped but it was the coincidence. It will freeze sometimes within 5 minutes or 1 hour. It is seemingly random. It will freeze with the full 16gb of ram and when i take out the stick with 12gb as well, and I figure its not the ram anymore and thats why I turn to you. I think it may be a software bug or something thats not installed.I have tried to install all the drivers that are out and the freezing happens sometimes when i go to install a program, download a driver, download a torrent, it seems during processes it just stops, screen locks up and it needs to be re-booted.Cant alt-tab, cant alt+ctrl+del or anything.Is there a program I can run to check everything? or a log or screenshots of a file or anything that you guys could use to diagnose? I'll get you anything you need, its frustrating that such a beautiful machine is freezing Also another thing that makes me think that its software rather than hardware is the fact that when i try to install windows updates they fail with an error 800B0100 and I have tried resetting the updater and running Microsoft tools and troubleshooters, nothings working[CODE]
last night before I shut my pc down I was fiddling with windows updates. all I did was make sure that it was set to not install anything automatically and ask me before it does anything. Then oddly enough when I shut down it said it was installing windows updates yet I did not see any updates ready to install before I shut down so I was very confused. I let it do its thing and then it finally shut down. Now when I start the pc today I get a blue screen of death that says pagefault_in_non_paged_area when Windows was finalizing the update install..it rebooted again, tried once more to finalize updates and got another bsod. I rebooted into safe mode at next reboot and it said it was uninstalling the updates because windows failed to load. It restarted normally and it said it was uninstalling and then bsod again. This time when I started up the system repair option came on. I let it do its thing but the issue couldnt be auto fixed it said. I clicked the details and there was signature 07 saying BadDriver. The details are sketchy from here because im having a hard time remembering them, but it let me go into system recovery so i chose to roll back to the time where it showed there was a windows update installed at like 1AM(there was not however, i have no clue why it said this). It wasnt able to roll back to that point and let me choose another. I instead chose to run the memory diagnostics. Windows rebooted and stuck on my bios splash screen. i restarted and it stuck once again.
I ran the lastest Windows updates on my PC and when it rebooted it was stuck on the "Configuring Windows do Not Shut Down" screen for hours. Finally, I shut down and the PC would not start up. I tried to do a system restore to before the Windows update, and got errors. However, the PC did start up (and actually said the restore worked), but not everything is functioning correctly on the PC (there is no HDMI sound for example and Google Chrome Updater will not connect to the internet). I tried to do another system restore from within Windows and got the error message in the attached screen shot.
I recently installed GTX670 SLI in my machine and run some benchmarks to test it is all working.
Afterwards, I did a clean format complete re-install with Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 with updates. It appears now when I shut down my machine, windows turns off the display and seems to shut down but does NOT turn off the fans/LEDs on my computer.
I then re-installed a clean windows 7, installed my drivers ONLY (no windows updates) and it shuts down/turns the computer off fine.
Windows XP used to give you the option to shut down your PC without installing Windows updates or to choose to shut it down and install updates,but this feature seems to be missing in Windows 7.One of my PC's runs Windows 7 Professional and it also comes with the Group policy Editor (gpdeit.msc) that can be used to tweak the registry so that you get the option to shut down with/without installing updates. It is fairly straightforward to do.However another of my PC's runs Windows 7 Home and it does not come with gpedit.msc.I downloaded the Group Policy Settings References for Windows 7 and Windows Server Excel file (Download: Group Policy Settings Reference for Windows and Windows Server - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details), and scrolled down to the Windows Updates lines at the end of the Administrative Templates tab; but I was unable to find the registry references in my registry. Specifically in order to enable "Do Not Adjust Default Option to Install Updates and Shut Down", I could not find the registry entries listed in the spreadsheet under either the HKCU or HKLM portions of my registry.
I just recently installed windows 7 ultimate..and everytime I shutdown the computer it automatically installs updates and I do not want that at all.ure..I dont want any updates installed at all without my consent..nor do I want the pc to do any updating before shutting down
I can't seem to shut down properly. It hangs on the shutting down screen and freezes (wheel stops spinning) I haven't managed to many BSODs but I have managed to get one, I've attached it. Any idea what the problem might be? I've tried restoring from previous restore point which then hung but windows said the restore was successfull
My computer used to get stuck on shut down on half my shut downs. I had to shut it down by pressing the power button (can doing this regularly damage your computer?)I searched online and i stopped AMD External Events through "msconfig" and the problem disappeared for 6 daysYesterday, my computer hanged so i had to manually shut it downI turn it on and use the internet, windows media player for music, transfer files to drop box for around 2 minutes then i get the BSODgenerated an exception which the error handler did not catch.This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: Unknown
I have installed a legit Windows 7 OS on my laptop. Its not an upgrade, it was a blank hard drive. WIndows 7 installed flawlessly, picked up all my drivers. The only problem is I am having problems with Windows 7 updates. When I choose Windows 7 update, it says "Checking for updates" and stays like that - forever. Even the next day. I did heavy heavy research, found out others are having the same problem. I tried all the fixes I could find, which are listed below:
1. No Anti-virus programs installed yet - brand new Windows 7 ultimate installation
2. There is no spyware - its a brand new clean install
3. Firewall shut off
4. Temp files, cookies, history cleared
5. background intelligent transfer service set to automatic in services.msc
6. software distribution folder renamed
7. tried shutting off automatic updates and doing it manually
8. Added windowsupdate to trust zone
9. ran MicrosoftFixit50202 in normal and advanced mode
Even with my internet SHUT OFF (turned off modem) it still checks for updates and doesn't fail with "No internet connection available".
Windows 7 updates keep coming but will not download. I do not own the win 7 o/s disk, cannot re-load. When I restart pc, warning says loading 2 of 3 updates, but after 2 hours nothing changes. I have to manually turn off pc and then turn it back on.
My windows update does not like to load! It takes a very long time and sometimes causes explorer to crash! When I checked, I had 92 updates to install. When I click download and install, it would freeze and stay there for a long time. I tried to use the Fix it application, however that gets stuck on "Checking Online for Updates" as well! What should I do? I also tried to update in safe mode, but it wouldn't let me.
my brand new Asus ultrabook was installing updates, got to 30-40% and the screen turned off. I waited for about 30-40 mins but nothing changed so i turned it off from the button. Tried holding it down several times, and turning it back on and off but nothing changed. I can hear it loads windows and i have blindly managed to type my password and i've even heard skype load so it must be working properlu besides the dark monitor.
My HP laptop has been in shutdown mode all day. This morning I downloaded updates for my HP laptop, and I assume that while I was downloading HP updates, it also downloaded Windows 7 updates. After MY downloads finished I initiated shut down, but it had 18 updates to install. It has been stuck on update # 7 since 10 AM this morning.
I just bought this laptop this fall. I hadn't used it for almost a month, and meant to take it with me to school today, but I had to leave it at home while it shut down. Now I'm wondering if I should interrupt the process since it's been 14 hours since it started this and it still says installing update 7.
I'm worried that if I shut it off manually it will corrupt the bios
I tried to shut down my laptop, the "Installing update, do not shut down or power off your computer" screen appears but my battery died during the update. And now when I startup the "Launch start up repair" appears and when i click it, I get stuck on a blue flower wallpaper screen thing and nothing appears. All i can see is the wallpaper and the mouse cursor.
i have a dell latitude d430 and I accidentally shut it down whilst it was configuring updates.Now, when turning on all i get is the 'configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete' and then it appears to restart and do it all over again.
I am using Windows 7 32 bit. I have now got a problem after automatic updates from MS. This occurs now on every shut down and power up. The message, Please do not switch off, installing updates etc. Then on power up, Installing updates etc it freezes for ages then fails and reboots.
I noticed the little windows update avatar on the bottm right on my Windows 7, so decided to check out what the updates are and selected the 1 important update, and 1 optional. Then, it appeared that the update initiated, but only stated 0% complete and 0 data downloading. I waited for about 15 minutes, still nothing and then shut the program down and rebooted. After I rebooted, it took almost 3 times as long to boot up to my desktop. It starts up as normal with the cmos info etc., then the standard blue windows default opening screen with the little circle (like the old hour-glass) showing that something is happening, then the screen goes black for a few minutes, then finally boots up to the desktop. Next, I tried to manually go to the control panel and scroll down to windows updates, when I click on it, all it does is get stuck and I am unable to close the windows update window either manually or through task manager. I eventually have to restart in order to get rid of the windows and control panel windows.
i just installed a clean copy of genuine windows 7 home premium. I let it update and what not but after coming back to look at the computer from awhile of being out, I realized it had been stuck on installing one of the updates (at least 20 had already been successfully installed). I figured i'd stop it and restart the comp and let it continue. Now it won't download any updates it just gets stuck at 0% everytime no matter what updates i pick. I'm using wireless internet but I even tried while it was connected straight up with the ethernet cable for optimum internet speed and still stuck at 0%. I've tried rebooting multiple times but still nothing. I am really trying to avoid having to reinstall the OS again.
Shut down my computer as usual and windows update started, but this time, it gets stuck at 4/40 o.o it's been well over 3 hours now and I have stuff to do, what should I do? The first response I got elsewhere was that the update will just restart if I unplugged, but then I did more research and it seems that I might likely get a corrupted windows... What should I do now?
my computer is stuck at 3 out of 13 when its installing the updates for windows before it shutdowns, its been stuck for 9+ hours now. i dont know how to stop/ restart the process. When i turn it off and reboot it, it goes straight to the update installing screen.
Windows Update seems to be stuck in and endless cycle of applying the same 5 important updates over and over again. Probably been happening for about 3 months now, and despite going through the install process and following all the instructions to the letter, every time I start up, the same updates are available for download again. Here is a screenshot of Windows Update showing the updates in question
It appears to be solved, however Windows Update does not work. I get the message "Windows Update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer." Needless to say, the restarts do not help. I also tried installing Windows Essentials for virus protection which could not receive updates. I have since uninstalled an am using Clamwin for virus protection.
I've installed the updates upon request. It's been two days now and the pop up keeps on coming saying the same two updates available. I checked the update history and the updates were all installed successfully. These updates are actually a few years old and it's odd how they just popped up. The updates were for MS Framerwork KB2600217 and KB2656351
My toshiba netbook (running windows 7 ultimate) has been stuck in an updates loop for the better part of the year. Whenever it has wanted to restart for updates, I always let it, but now it gets stuck configuring and sometimes realizes that it's failed and reverts the changes, or sometimes (when it's stuck on the same percentage for hours or even days) I have to pull the battery and restart in safe mode to get it to work again. Now it's really stupidly slow and can't even open firefox half the time. I've taken some basic precautions, like thorough malware scans, backing up all my files on my external hard drive and deleting useless programs, but it's still sluggish and unreliable
It got stuck at 15%. So I rebooted into Safe Mode, tried System Restore. It failed, so I tried System Recovery Options, that failed too. Then I rebooted it regularly and it tells me that, in fact, System Restore worked. Now what do I do? (Besides backup my stuff.) Try to update Windows manually or do I need to do something before that?
My machine has been stuck on installing this update all night. I think my hard drive may be full, what should I do? Been meaning to format that thing and reinstall windows to it since its just a 40 gig SSD.
I'm having a problem with Windows Update. It's managed to install a few updates, bust most of the updates that it automatically finds fail to install (many important ones too - security updates, etc.). A bit frustrating. For the past couple of days, it tries to install the same two updates every time I turn off the computer. The process takes about 40 minutes. Then it shuts off without an error message. Afterwards, when I turn the computer on again, it doesn't say anything but there are once more two updates that need to be installed - the same ones. It's been quite frustrating. For now, I've got the updates turned off, so it won't try to install them any more, but that's only a workaround and no solution.
I think the problem might be connected with some other installations problems. I've tried to download the updates and install them manually, but it didn't work either; first it said that my virus scanner was interfering (I disconnected from the Internet, deactivated the virus scanner, and tried it again, which got a little bit further but not all the way). At the end I got a kind of dubious error message, which I sadly haven't written down, but it was similar to the ones that I got when I tried to install Microsoft Office and also was unable to get the installation to run through to the end. In both instances, the installation was almost done, after which I got a message that there was a problem with some assembly components, and then it undid the changes. This normally took more than an hour - 30 minutes for the installation to get to the point where it started over, an hour to get it to cancel itself. Haven't found a solution there, and that sucks, because I really need it. I've got a lot of files saved in OneNote format that I can't use and need for work.
The Office error messages led me to a couple of forums where it had worked out because people had updated their .NET framework. I can't do that because .NET is part of the OS framework in Windows 7, apparently. Then I read that some other people had just used Windows Update to update their OS, and then it worked. That's what led me to the discovery that my updates weren't working. I believe that that's got something to do with the problem.I've installed some software, but there's the problem with Windows - I can't install it at all. Not sure what to do here. Windows Update lets me look at the update history. I've found that I get the error code 643 for the two updates that have repeated over the past two days again and again. For the other ones it's a little different; they tried to install once and didn't work. For those, I get following code: 80080005.
I have windows 7 64 bit sp1, and when i check for updates it checks for updates with no results. I have let it run overnight and still nothing. It says checking for updates with the green line going back and forth, but never gets any results. Can someone help me with this it is very frustrating.
