Problems Updating Bios After Update

Yesterday i went to the amd site to download the latest bios. I installed sp3 for windows xp and got the bsod but no specifics, just four error codes after the 0x0000007e stop. The bios saved as a winzip, and when i opened it, it was set as a vlc media player file, which seemed wrong, and as a text file, which seemed wrong. Earlier i had been able to open it, and run it, but then it said i had to shut down to get it to activate. So when i said shut down, the system said, hold on, it's not finished and if you shut down now, you could lose files. So i waited, nothing happened.

So i did it again and it said do you want to uninstall it, suggesting it was installed already.
If it was installed, it clearly had no affect on my bsod problem. I can only boot in safe modes since i upgraded to sp3. And one issue it said could be the problem is an out of date bios.
Do i have two bios? One for the cpu and one for the motherboard? I went to try and update my asus mb, but that may have been where i got the winzip issue, not the amd bios for the cpu. Either way, still getting the bsod. And when i have booted, i don't think the version of bios has changed. But i was able to check my version versus the latest versions, and i am seriously out of date.

Updating Drivers

I ran vista 64 on this custom pc for 2 years and upgraded to win 7. I had it running well for about a month until i started getting lots of updates for drivers, like atapi, 1394, atk 0110 etc. Installing these "updates" over time began to give me lock ups and bsods. I sort of just took windows word for it and installed these drivers, knowing full well that windows has tried to give me the wrong drivers in the past (gpu, monitor, sound card to name a few).

Im on my 6th install of win 7 so ive decided to update all drivers manually in the future. Im pretty familiar with updating drivers for devices like the gpu, mobo (nforce), monitor, mouse, sound card etc but im unsure about updating several other devices. These devices have windows generic drivers dating back to 2006 and include :

Acpi x64
Wdc scsi disk device
Ide ata/atapi controllers (ata 0, 1, pci ide generic)
1394 bus controller
Usb's

It should be noted that ive been sent windows updates for atapi, atk 0110, ehci (usb updates), 1394
My board is an asus striker ii extreme. From their website i can get the drivers for :jmicron(raid controller), nforce (though its outdated), onboard audio and atk 0110 and install them on top of the generic drivers. But that leaves me with quite a few other drivers missing. Atapi, ehci, 1394. Where would i get these?

Computer Not Updating

My computer is set to automatically update every day, but has not been updating at all for the past year. When i check for updates, a message appears that says "failed"  and when i look to see the list of things that try to update, they all say "failed. "  When it searches for updates, a code comes up that says "error" with a bunch of numbers after it. Because of the computer unable to update, i am no longer able to print or open up any microsoft programs, such as word or excel.

When i try to open these programs, it tells me that not updating the computer could affect the stability of the computer and that i would need to go to windows update to install new updates. When i opened up windows update, it said that i must first install an update for windows update. I clicked "install now" and it attempts to install, but then goes right back to the original page.

The other night i went online to see what else i could do about this. Several websites said that the problem was most likely from the catroot2 folder and that renaming this folder to catroot2old would fix the problem. I tried this and it would not allow me to change the name. Now i don't know what else to do.

Ie Will Not Open After Updating To Ie8

I recently reformatted my desktop pc and reinstalled xp home sp2. I have updated to sp3. I have just finished updating ie to ie8. I rebooted but, upon restarting, explorer did not open in the usual way. I selected my account to log in and my settings loaded but, when my desktop appeared, there was no taskbar and none of my icons. There was a small popup window about personalization of my browser settings (i'm sorry, for some reason i can't recall the wording) in the top left corner but, unfortunately, it hung and i had to reboot without shutting down properly.

Now, explorer starts as usual and, other programs seem to be fine but, when i click to open ie8, i get the little animated hourglass on my cursor for a moment or two - as though it is about to open - but then, it stops and nothing else happens. I would appreciate some direction on how to rectify the situation. I have to make do with a dial-up internet connection at the moment and so, if there's a way to fix it without downloading anything (simply because it takes a long time), that would be preferable.

Automatic Updating Problems

Something fishy seems to be going on with my computer. I seem to have a mystery partition on my hard drive. You see, my hard drive should have only one partition, drive c. And that's all that shows. However, when booting off of the windows xp setup disc, i discovered a second partition of 31 mb that does not show up in my computer. Automatic updating also fails to deliver the newest microsoft updates to me, and even windows steadystate installs no updates, even though it says it is. Several
Months ago, this computer had a bot and 37 trojan horses, a virus, and spyware. I reinstalled to get rid of the bot. Tell me, is what's going on here normal, or should i be worried? Is it possible that the bot is still on that mystery partition?

Laptop was running problem free before i closed it down last night. Can i simply turn off the computer?

Win 7 Hangs On Updating Ms Security Essentials

I installed win7 ult. As a dual boot on my pc which was running xp pro. (4 mb ram). Recently when i  booted up win7 it asked to update ms security essentials, but would not do so when i clicked update. I seemed to spin it's wheels for hours. I now note that when shutting down win7 instead it wants to reconfigure win7, but again seems to spin it's wheels endlessly without an endpoint (i ran it overnight at one point). Clearly there is a system glitch somewhere. Can someone suggest how to correct the problem(s) or is it necessary to reinstall win7.

Media Center Library Updating Issue

I am having repeated difficulty maintaining my media library with wmc. I am running win7 professional - 64 bit on a ibm intellistation 6223, dual 3. 6ghz xeon w/ 5gb memory. I have parred down my entire media library to one directory of ~20 pictures in an attempt to isolate the issue to no avail. Media player sees the pictures just fine: media center sees the picture directory, but claims it is empty.

I have already:

1. Rebuilt the database by following the directions give in another post by savan h, provided here:

Follow these steps:

A. Click start, type%systemdrive%programdatamicrosoftehome in the start search box and hit enter.

B. Right-click themediacenterdatastore. Dbfile and delete.

C. Restart windows media center.

(Note: i did not find the filemediacenterdatastore. Db, but did find and delete the . Db file called mcepg2-0. Db, but to no avail. )

2. I have uninstalled and re-installed wmc.

3. I have run system file checker (sfc) and no errors were found.

Why can't wmc see and display picture files that wmp has no problem with?

Won't Stop Updating And Configuring

Everytime i turn off my computer, vista is downloading updates. Then the next time i turn it on, it says it's 'configuring 1 of 3- do not turn computer off'. This takes up to 20 minutes to configure all three. It seems as if it's attempting to perform the same update over and over. I let it run- i don't turn off the computer. To top it all, everytime over the past year that vista has updated, my computer fails to boot, and has to search for solutions, which of course takes forever as well.

It finally boots up, but this is obviously unacceptable. I need to know if there is a solution, or if it's just one more flaw in the terrible vista operating system, and i should just download windows 7, or, better yet, buy a mac.

Sound Not Working After Updating Display Driver

I recently upgraded to windows 7 and am having an annoying issue with the sound. My display driver is intel g45/g43 express chipset. My sound drivers are intel high definition audio hdmi (location 3 (internal high definition audio bus)) and realtek high definition audio (location 2 (internal high definition audio bus)). When first upgrading the sound works fine (using the intel driver). However, when i upgrade my display driver, the sound stops working. My pc is switching over to the realtek driver that doesn't have my hdmi connection (so no sound).

In the 'sound' section in control panel, my intel driver isn't even showing up as an available playback device. Important to note that in vista i had the updated display driver and did not have an issue like this. I always have option of not using updated driver but i prefer to have it. The updated driver provides height/width resizing so i can use highest resolution and then scale to fit my plasma. Any help would be much appreciated

Trouble Updating .net Framework, Receiving Error Code 643

I am not too keen with computers so you'll have to bear with me here. My computer has been acting a little funky lately, so i figured that i should update my computer. This update was a service pack for my .net framework. I failed in this attempt, as aforementioned receiving error code 643, which apparently means that my current .net framework is damaged. I can't update it b/c it is damaged. Seems a little silly.

I then went to help and support, which told me to "fix it" by following a link in order to "repair .net framework. " This was a download.microsoft page and my computer for some reason don't like them. Or maybe they don't like me. I get some "oops!" Message from firefox and internet explorer when trying to connect to a download.microsoft address.

I tried repairing my current .net framework using that "uninstall program" thingy in the control panel, but that didn't seem to have any effect on the success of its service pack update.
Well anyway, i followed a support.microsoft tutorial. It instructed me to uninstall my current .net framework using "dotnetfx cleanup tool" -something i had to install.

The tutorial then instructed me to go to a download.microsoft page, which ended in failure, of course. Soooo. Now i don't have a .net thing. I assume that to be bad, especially since i can't download another one from microsoft.
So far, i have gone to a couple of microsoft tutorial pages, but it always comes back to an inability to connect to download.microsoft. Once i fix whatever is wrong with my current .net framework, i feel like maybe i'll be able to successfully update my computer.

I'm not even sure why this is such a big deal to me since i have no idea what any of this means. I just need some help. Any ideas?
 
Oh! And i'm not sure if this is relevant, but when i try to connect to download.microsoft, i receive one of two messages: the "oops!" One . Which tells me nothing; and one that says that "'download.microsoft.com' is not set up to establish a connection on port 'world wide web service (http)' with this computer. "

.net Framework 3.5 Family Update Keeps Coming Back To Update List

It is the 12th time i install the microsoft .net framework 3. 5 service pack 1 and .net framework 3. 5 family update, (kb951847) x86, it keeps coming back to my windows update list. I have checked all the forums and i see a lot of people having the same problem i have. The difference is that they always say they got an error message, i didn't. I am not an expert, but i'm happy to say that i have never had trouble with windows vista. Here is the link to a screen-shot of the update history in my computer.

Cannot Update

I am using ie8, service pack 3 with windows xp home. I cannot update manually. When i try, the page says "internet explorer cannot display the webpage". I also tried to update directly through windows update web page but get the same results. Automatic updates is turned on and always has been. Something is blocking me out. My system is infected. I have removed multiple detections in recent days. I also tried to install scanner from windows live but they downloads are also blocked, they only partially load and then freeze up.

I am using malwarebytes anti-malware, super anti-spyware and hitman pro 3. 5 for security. Each has detected and "removed" multiple infected items over the past several days but new detections come everyday. I always scan in safe mode with network and always update them before scanning. I tried a system restore to a little over one month back and that did not help. I fear that since i have not been able to update with windows, these issues are entering through some hole.

Update Stuck At 18%

I have a problem with the installation of a windows update. It's set to check and install updates everyday at 3:00am. The problem is that in the task bar (the lower right side) it displays a "windows is installing updates" sign, and it has been stuck at 18% for the whole time. (A couple days now. ) The installing update window says it shows that "1 of 8 updates" are being installed. I tried to stop the installation a couple of times, but nothing would happen. It would just show the "stop installation" button faded, but it still shows the installing updates display.

I've tried to disable my firewalls (mcafee and windows firewall) and tried to stop the update, or redo the update, but it still hasn't done anything. I think it might have to do with a microsoft office update, because i was trying to uninstall the trial version of microsoft office today, but it wouldn't install, it just stayed without showing any progress of the uninstall.

The last updates that were successfully installed according to the windows update screen is 8/24/09, and it checked for updates today with no updates available for download/install.

Update Issue

I am having the same issue after upgrading from vista to windows 7 home premium 32 bit. At first, the update engine would not run after the upgrade but after some instruction form microsoft support i got the update engine working. But now updates are backing up after install failures. The install fails on the reboot - always getting to the 15% or 35% point on configuring updates on the reboot and then a message that update config failed and changes were reverted. Have also tried selecting pending updates one at a time but that also results in failure on reboot. There is no error code presented after the failure.
