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.

Update At Shutdown Hangs Up

Os: win 7 home premium 64 bit oem installed on zt 1. 5t desktop
Service pack level:  do not know. Machine is 2 weeks old and have seen 3-5 successful updates at shutdown time.

Few weeks ago bought a quad-core zt machine that came with win 7 home premium 64 bit os and a 1. 5t hd. Have been very happy with the unit, and have seen some 3 or 4 updates at shutdown with the usual banner "please do not power off or unplug your computer; installing update 1 of x. "  So, would happily head to bed and could hear the unit shut down in five minutes or so.

Not so last evening (fri, feb 26). Saw the update screen at 11 pm, and still there as of 10 am this morning. Yes, can see some sporadic hard disk activity, and the spinning cursor.

Any idea what may be happening, and more importantly how can i break out of the update, bring to a place where i can continue my work?

Btw, have two other win 7 systems that did not have the update last evening: a netbook running home premium 32bit, and a dell desktop running win 7 ultimate. All three are on a home win 7 network.

Update Unprompted Reboot

I run windows 7 prof. On my laptop and yesterday, the windows update service downloaded and partially installed some security updates. Then it asked me to save my work and reboot. I declined and delayed the notification by 4 hours. I continued doing this again and again and at the end of the day i put the laptop in hibernation. The next day (today) i turned it on again and continued my work for about ten minutes. Then all of the running applications closed themselves automatically, throwing all the unsaved documents away, after what the laptop automatically rebooted and finished installing the updates.

How on earth could this be possible?! Do i look like a slave of my os? I want to reboot my laptop whenever >i< want to, not whenever microsoft wants to!

What's going on and how can i fix this?
Thanks and sorry for my crappy english.

(By the way - i wanted to share my problem with the microsoft's technical support, so i went to the ms website, where i found out i just can't! The only option offered to me was to call them, but with a small note telling me they may want me to pay for it! What?! I've got the os legally - why would i have to pay if i wanted it to do its job properly?!)

Looping Reboot Problem After Update

I've got windows xp on a asus a8v-e-se motherboard that has developed a looping reboot problem after updates. It won't go into safe mode either. Stops at a driver screen. I've used the recovery console using the xp cd and can see the update directories in the system-root. I followed the instructions listed in the forum to uninstall each update by navigating with dos commands to the update spuninst subdirectory and then run "batch spuninst.txt".

I get a bunch of "access denied" messages for each one (varies in amount of "access denied" messages per each but consistent for each. It doesn't look like the batch uninstall for the update is working. I tried to uninstall all of the updates from yesterday 2-10-10 (i had 10) even with the "access denied" messages but it still won't boot up properly. Any way to get around the access denied messages?

Reboot Loop On Install

I'm trying to install win 7 home premium on a new pc, specs: proc: core i5 760 2. 80ghz lga1156mb: asus p7h55d-m pro intel h55 lga 1156 (pcx/vga/dzw/glan/sata/ddr3) matxram: kingston hyperx khx1333c9d3k2/4ghd:hdd seagate 1tb st31000528as sata ii 32mb

The problem is that just after the first splash screen, either the pc reboots, or with mouse input, attempts to show the tos window, but on clicking the check-box just reverts to the same tos window. Left without clicking, it reboots. I would be very grateful for assistance.

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?

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?

Advice sought on this situation: dell inspiron 1501 w/vista home basic sp2 32 bit. Windows update recommends installing:  microsoft .net framework 1. 1 service pack 1 security update for windows 2000, windows xp, windows vista, windows server 2008, windows 7, and windows server 2008 r2 (kb953297). Install fails.

According to programs and features, the following .net versions are installed already: .net framework 1. 1, .net framework 1. 1 hotfix (kb929729) and .net framework 3. 5 sp1 attempted to uninstall all three of these versions (with intention of reinstalling from windows update). Only the last uninstalled successfully. When tried to uninstall the first, got message "valid only for products that are currently installed. " 

When tried to uninstall the second, got message "the upgrade patch cannot be installed because the program to be updated may be missing. " I'd like to know what version of .net this computer should have, and how to go about getting it installed correctly.

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.

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 all.microsoft 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?

Nvidia Geforce 8600m Gt Unable To Install / Update Drivers

Clean install windows 7 64 bit from vista 32 bit.nvidia® geforce® 8600m gt gpu listed as a 'standard vga graphics adapter' and unable to install/update drivers. I have a sony vaio vgn-ar51su and installed windows 7 64 bit.

I have downloaded the latest nvida drivers from here: http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/notebook_winvista_win7_x64_195. 62_whql_uk.html

Running the program it doesn't find any compatible devices. When i go to device manager and do it manually (update driver) and point it to the correct folder on c drive where the previous programme has installed all of the driver files it says 'the best driver software for your device is already installed' which, of course is untrue. Can anyone help?

System Won't Install Automatic Update Kb973688

Having a repeated problem with this installation. I receive a: code 643 windows update encountered an unknown error. This also applies to kb954430. I've come across other info on this site to fix this problem but so far with no success. (http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/vistawu/thread/f4bd0a46-a7aa-407b-b64b-f8517fd4ed7f)

I've read the article on this issue. I've downloaded the update and tried to install manually but that didn't work. The info said press the ignore button but i don't get this option. The only option is an ok button at which point the installation rolls back. I've tried updating the windows update component by using the microsoft "fixit" program but i get the same error: an error occurred during the installation of assembly component

{7b2b4ea5-1028-b7e6-a06b-d6b9abf34537}.
Hresult:0x80073712.

The setup dialog has the status as: publishing product information

I then tried to uninstall the msxml4 file by going to the remove programs in the control panel but it states that there are no updates on the computer. Probably got wiped out by one of the pc "cleaners" i've used (ccleaner and the such). Other than this problem, the machine is up-to-date and all other updates have installed successfully. Also tried it with the firewall and antivirus turned off. This is a six week old machine running windows 7 64.

Cannot Shutdown After Upgrade

I've upgraded my nec notebook (versa s9100) from vista business to window 7 ultimate. After upgrading, the notebook does not shut down completely. The power light indicates that the power is on and i have to hold the power button down to cut power. When it starts up again, it will say that the computer was not shut down properly.

I can hibernate the computer but when it starts up, i get the recovery page where i have the option to start in safe mode, etc. I select "start windows normally" and it works ok. I tried doing the clean boot as suggested by other forums but it did not resolve the problem.

I realized that i forgot to turn off my avast anti-virus when i did the upgrade. Would that have affected the upgrade?

Cpu Tries To Shutdown

Just switched to windows 7 and im starting to notice that my pc is starting to trying to shutdown . Its giving off the the noise it usually makes when it shutdowns like every hour but doesn't really shutdown . I have changed the power setting to never shutdown. It never did this when i was using windows xp so it somewhat seeming very strange. I looked up some info on the internet but that said it may be synchronization with my pc clock but that's not the case.

I have opened it to make sure everything was still running fine and of course they are but the continuous  shutdown noise is bothering me still. My board  is windows 7 compatible. Oh im am running windows 32 bit version if that helps.

Not just ms office programs, this happens in other programs as well - eg copernic agent professional: close down a search and the whole program exits!Have run both virus and malware checks but nothing there. Only other possible clue is that the mouse pointer appears unduly sensitive (but can see nothing in control panel to reduce sensitivity). Am using single mouse click. Any assistance appreciated . . .
