Install Update Bug

I've install windows 7 and like it's excitement, i install the update, but i found that the problem is in the networking. Suddenly i cannot connect to the internet using my broadband connection, the troubleshooting is i have to disable my lan, and try to repair the trouble, and it can connect again to the net. But, if i don't install the update, it can connect anytime without doing the "ritual", i've try to restore the system earlier before the update. Any suggestion or the update is really a bug?

Taskbar Bug

Found a small bug in the highlighting of applications on the taskbar. Tested with windows explorer, haven't tested any others. Always reproducible on my machine.

Open two windows. Show the previews by mousing over the icon. Mouse over one of the windows, and hover over the close button. Once the window comes to the front, close it using the close button on the preview, then move your mouse off the preview so that the preview will close soon. The highlight stays on the icon no matter where you move the mouse, until you focus another window or mouse over a taskbar icon again.

Microphone Bug

I have a problem about mic. I use windows 7(32-bit), and have latest sound driver. The problem is, i plug it in at proper "jack" ( the pink one ). I un-mute it and put the volume on max. I can hear on my headset when im poking the mic but when i try to record, or to speak with someone over skype / msn, the green line is not rising up, and people are complaining to me that they can't hear me. I've been searching forums about this. I am sure that its not cause of driver, or non-working mic. Some even wrote that it could be a bug at windows 7, or driver http://social.

I have one desktop mic, and headset mic, same problem at both. Oh, and by the way, i never had this kind of problem on windows xp.

Outlook 2007 Bug

After a clean windows  7 install, outlook 2007 places a space before each apostrophe on all outgoing email. I have found that use of ctrl + z fixes it, but we shouldn't have to use it each time. It is annoying. A fix at the source of the bug is necessary. My research finds this is a common new issue among w7/office users.

I have been using w7 since it's rc and hosted a w7 party last month - so i am not a newbie. This is not a formatting issue, rather a bug in the code somewhere. Let's get it fixed microsoft. Everything else works great!

Where To Report / Confirm Bug?

i think i've found a bug in windows 7. Where to report or confirm this? This forum?

P. S. To make it more clear, here is the situation:

Title: problem entering backslash character in standard open file dialog

Steps to reproduce
Use any program which uses standard open dialog (i will demonstrate on notepad), make czech keyboard available in the system.
Start notepad
Switch to czech keyboard
Choose file -> open
Try to enter backslash in the filename edit box using right alt /altgr/ + q key combination

Backslash character ('') appears

Nothing happens

Known workarounds
Use us keyboard (or other where backslash char. Can be typed directly)
Switch to us keyboard and back to czech - right alt + q will start to work for this instance of dialog

Opening Folders Bug

I notice this: you double click on a folder in explorer and it opens to reveal other folders, no problem. Now have you noticed that when you keep clicking on folders that the clicked folder which is showing in the open dialog window jumps all the way to the bottom so that now you have to first scroll that selected folder all the way up just to see the sub folders contained inside of it.
This is very very annoying. I don't want that every time i click on a sub folder it goes all the
Way down to the bottom of the open dialog box, it should stay where it is, but no, instead it
Falls all the way down to the bottom and each time i open a sub folder i have keep scrolling the
Sub folder list up, this is a pain in the buttocks and i consider it to be a bug.

Cannot Install Update Kb951847

Enough people seem to be having trouble with this automatic update. I get error 8007 0663 and . 0643. The offered solution is usually to uninstall all versions of dot net (2. 0, 3. 0 and 3. 5) then start all over again. I did that once a year or so ago with the help of an ms support person. It took hours. I feel like maybe this is the easiest answer, rather than the right answer. I don't want to have to take a day off every time dot net fails. Actually, i don't even have a problem except that the update wont run. I compared automatic updates on my two computers.

The other computer never got this update, so why did the one with the problem download it. This update seems fairly old. Did it think it needed to try to refresh dot net? My automatic updates - even to dot net have been running just fine. I can't find a way in the update program to turn this update off. Is there a way to delete the downloaded copy which it keeps using, and try a fresh download. This computer was also rerunning kb982168 and reporting it successful each time. Now it seems to be back in the queue and maybe waiting for the problem update to complete. Nybody have an idea how to get this update downloaded clean so i can try to run it? Or any other ideas?

Update Kb976422 Will Not Install

Windows update kb976422 will not install for me. Every time i run "update" it tells me that the update is an optional install for my system. Every time it runs i observe little cpu or disk activity. The update task never completes. If i run the update during the shut down process, the pc eventually shuts down (long after i'm asleep) but still is listed as an optional update after a restart. I am running windows 7 ultimate (64-bit) with 6 gb of ram, 2. 2 tb of disk (raid 5, though os is not on the raid device) with all other updates successfully installed. The windows troubleshooter did not find a problem or suggest a way to proceed. Is there some way to fix this, or should i just live without it?

Power Saver / Graphics Bug

My asus computer has this power4gear battery performance tracker/ruinmylife software. I should mention that i always keep my laptop plugged in for the duration of my session, then unplug it after shutting down. When i turn on my computer, everything is fine. But when i start to do anything, anything, an extremely intrusive and dictatorial performance pop up invades my computer screen, telling me that it is switching power plans (nothing changes during this 'switch'), and will not go away or minimize for at least two minutes.

If i try to do anything while it is on the screen, the screen immediately goes black and stays that way until the pop up decides to call it quits. I know it has something to do with nvidia graphics, but if i click on the tray icon nothing happens. Occasionally, after childishly trying to click the pop up away roughly 50 times it starts to fade white, behaving like a non-responsive program (which it obviously is). Every so often the pop up appears multiple times in one session, even if i'm doing one thing for the duration of my time on the computer.

If i'm gaming, i am hard-pressed to minimize the program if the occasion calls for it because bringing it back up each time dims the screen more and more. Is there anything i can do or press to make this pop up go away? It's just really, really annoying!

Bug - Multi Monitor And Apps

I have 2 monitors.

Master monitor (left)
Secondary monitor (right)

I moved office and for cable length reason i changed the secondary monitor to be on the left. I set windows 7 to tell it that the secondary monitor is now on the left not the right.

Previous apps that i've used on the second monitor seem to default in the past to always loading on the screen on the right. Now when i open them application i can only see them in the task bar, they do not appear on screen. If i tell windows 7 my secondary monitor is on the right, i can then see the application on that screen.

This is a bug, windows should know that the secondary monitor is no longer connected on the right and it should not be loading the application window to a monitor that does not exist.

Win 7 Rtm Taskbar Bug

I am running windows 7 rtm x64 from technet. I apply the setting to never combine the icons on the taskbar. Then i open two windows of the same program, lets say word. When i rolled over with the mouse on the beta, the blue color would stretch across both windows very nicely. Now, in the rtm, it only stretches across one window, stops and does it to the other when i roll over the other. It does not look good. Also, is there any clarification that the retail build out today is the same as the rtm?

Game Spider Solitaire Bug

I found a bug in spider solitaire, on xp64, don't know if it still exists in windows 7. I was playing a "simple" game, and removed 7 suits of spades before trying to deal the last set of 10 cards. With 7 suits removed, there were only 3 cards remaining in play. When i attempted to deal, i got the error dialog "you are not allowed to deal a new row while there are any empty slots. "

The problem is i don't have enough cards left to fill all the empty slots, so there is no way to complete the game. I did some quick calculations, and decided the odds of this situation arising are roughly 1:100 for a simple game, but much less for medium or difficult games.

Bug Report Dvd Maker

I have windows 7 home premium x64 with windows dvd maker file version: 6. 1. 7600. 16385 dated 07/13/2009 9:39 pm. When adding titles to be burned, dvd maker shows a time of 150 minutes on the dvd. It can not add mpg files correctly. A mpeg with 1:31 and another mpeg with 45 minutes and another mpeg 14 minutes shows 149 out of 150 minutes. This is incorrect since the blank dvd can only hold 120 minutes. Encoding starts and then there is an error. Nothing is written. I can create the dvd with 1:31 + 14 minutes dvd for 105 minutes.

Install Update On Reboot, Not On Shutdown

I have a question that i thought microsoft would have thought about and implemented years ago. When there is updates for windows that needs to be installed, why do microsoft only have the option to install these on a shut down? If there is any updates you get 2 options.

1. Shut down the computer and install updates.

2. Install the updates and hope that the update doesn't require you to reboot.

What i want is this.

1. The option to install updates when i reboot my pc because then i can install the updates if i go away for a while and the computer are updated, rebooted and ready to be used again when i get back. Even if the update doesn't require a reboot this feature would appreciated. Murphys law apples here. If you don't have the time to reboot after installing updates a reboot is required. If you do have time a reboot isn't required. And even if a reboot isn't required there is no harm done if i choose to reboot and install updates.

2. The option not to install updates when i want to shut down my pc. Sometimes i might just want to shut down the computer without having to install the update because i'm in a hurry. I don't want to have to wait for the updates to install before i can take my computer with me.

Kb980408 Update Install Failed

Installed win7 pro on my hp desktop two days ago. Installed about 30 updates without issue but am getting hung up on one of them.

Kb980408 keeps failing. The error i get is: "windowsupdate_800b0100" "windowsupdate_dt000"

I downloaded the update and attempted a manual installation but that did not work either. I tried microsoft fixit and it did not resolve the issue even with aggressive mode. I've tried running the system update readiness tool but that didn't work for me. I've pasted the log at the end of this message if it's of any use.

The only antivirus i am running is microsoft security essentials.

Win7 Bug - Media Player 12 Froze

While browsing through some songs with google chrome i wanted to save one of the sounds which loaded on the websites flash music player. So i went to the directory d:usersjonappdatalocalgooglechromeuser datadefaultcache as i do similarly with mozilla firefox in windows xp. And copied the file i thought was the audio file into another directory and changed the extension to . Mp3 .

When i opened the file which turned out not to be the audio clip, windows media player 12 froze, and before i was able to move the mouse to close the application, the cursor froze as well as everything else.

The only thing that did seem to work was the song playing before i opened the file. I waited for about 5 minutes to see if the computer would suddenly wake up from its trance, but it didn't. I decided to hit the power button on my pc and restart win7. I tried once more to play the apparent file and once again, the same symptoms showed.

Security Update Kb954430 Wont Install

I have tried many things, like downloading it manually. I have read other forums, who say to uninstall the existing 954430 update (in add or remove programs) and reinstall. There is no existing one.

When i install manually, it comes back with an error message:

Cannot Install Cumulative Security Update For Ie8

I cannot install the latest security cumulative security update and appear to have been infected with something called cidutility-mud. This appears in the bottom screen tool bar whenever i log on and creates two entries of iexplorer.exe*32 in the task manager. I think this program is stopping the install of the security update. I have tried many scans with ms security essentials which show no virus. I have also tried spybot search and destroy also which finds no adaware. I am concerned my explorer 8 has been hijacked.

Installer Has Been Corrupted After Failed To Install Office Update

My windows installer has been corrupted since a failed to install office update (kb981715). Now i cannot install adobe reader. I have vista home premium, 32 bit on my dell inspiron 518 (purchased march 2009) last, april (2010) i had a failed to install update (kb981715) for microsoft office  2007 and after many , many hours working with a microsoft tech support, i finally was told to just hide that update because my "windows works plus" didn't need this update.

However, i believe that this "failed to install update" removed part of the windows installer and i have been unable to get updates for adobe reader and after i uninstalled that software, i could not install that new download at support page will not accept my correct product id, so now i can't even get that help. What will happen if i try to download a new windows installer?

Bug - Bsd On Target Host When Connecting To Win7 Shares

When connecting to a network share on a windows 7 professional host, the target host (server) immediately blue-screens. This behavior is repeatable and consistent.


Two windows 7 professional hosts were tested. One host had a fresh load using the hp standard image. The second host had a fresh load using the microsoft retail dvd. Both hosts are members of a windows server 2003 r2 hosted activedirectory domain running in native mode. Default network settings are used on both hosts, obtaining ipv4 addresses via dhcp. Domain administrative accounts were used in all scenarios.

Tests were performed in the following manner:

1) windows 7 professional client to the c$ administrative share on a windows 7 professional target host.
2) windows 7 professional client to an explicit, read-only share on a windows 7 professional target host.
3) windows xp client to the c$ administrative share on a windows 7 professional target host.
4) windows xp client to an explicit, read-only share on a windows 7 professional target host.

In all scenarios, the target windows 7 professional host immediately blue-screens. This behavior could be duplicated 100% of the time.

Microsoft .net Framework 3.5 Family Update Fails To Install

I have an hp dv-4 pavilion laptop that is running windows vista 64bit. The "microsoft .net framework 3. 5 service pack 1 and .net framework 3. 5 family update (kb951847) x64" constantly fails to install. I have tried 3-4 times and continue to get a code 800b0100 error. I clicked on the link to troubleshoot the error. This brought me to microsoft's website to download the "system update readiness tool for windows vista for x64-based systems (kb947821){august 2008}". I successfully downloaded this tool but i continue to receive the error when trying to update. Any suggestions on what to try next?
