Update Causing Several Problem

I updated my windows 7 rc build 7100 yesterday for the first time since mid-november. The reason i waited so long for this was because last time i updated windows, i had the same problems as i am experiencing now. The downloading and installing of the updates goes fine, but when i restart the computer, it takes 5+ minutes to take me to the desktop after entering my user information. When the computer finally starts up, aero is disabled.

During my first log-in after the update, all the programs i had pinned to the taskbar disappeared, and i had desktop icons on my screen which hadn't been there in a few months at least. When starting up any web browser, all my favorites are gone, as well as any customization. I can't start up windows messenger because i get error code 84cc0020. Restarting the computer restored the icons to the taskbar, but the lack of aero persisted. After using system restore to go to a point before the update, all that changes is that i no longer have the updates installed, while all the other problems remain.

Drivers Causing Multiple Bsod

In addition to this issue, i also get "windows explorer" (explorer.exe) and sometimes " internet explorer" (iexplorer.exe) "has stop working errors" and whenever i watch tv (be it clear qam, ota or analog cable) it goes bsod after about 3 minutes. All my devices/latest drivers are recognized by 7 rtm (ultimate) based from the device manager window and their properties and i have all the updates including the latest installed. I am running out of ideas and is getting ready to go back to xp unless someone here can help me figure this out. By the way, playing mp3's also crashes my system.

Updates Causing Screen Cutoffs

Recently i installed 17 updates and after the computer rebooted (and updated some registry files) my screen had been resized to not display ~2 inches from both sides. It shows everything but just doesn't use the whole monitor. I tried changing the resolution but many resolutions were out of range (when they weren't before).

Some of my system specs:nvidia 9800 gt graphics card asus m3n78-vm motherboard amd athon ii x2 245 processor via high definition audio card westinghouse lcm 22w3 monitor (22") i have installed nvidia driver version 258. 96 from either 197. 45 or 15. 49 (not sure which), with the only noticeable change being that now i can change my resolution to 1600x900 on the nvidia control panel and it changes the resolution but chops off the same amount of area (therefore not letting me see the left or right-hand 2 inches of the screen, including the start button or time). Changing the resolution through the windows screen resolution window still gives me "out of range. "I have checked for bios drivers and mine are up to date.

Flash Causing Internet Browsers To Hang

This has been an ongoing issue and i am so sick of it. Flash content is constantly causing any internet browser i use to hang. My main browser is firefox. It mostly happens with flash video like on youtube. Sometimes it works fine for a while and then all of a sudden when i go to play a new video the browser will hang. When the browser hangs i will no longer be able to watch videos unless the computer is restarted. When the browser hangs it also affects windows too.

I can't even play videos on wmp, it would hang too. It only happens if the browser was hanged. I always get the hang errors when it happens in firefox but i have no idea how to use them. I have made dump files too when it happens but i do not have a clue how to use them. (Something about signature files or something)

Urlmon.dll Causing Programs To Crash

Since installing cumulative security update for internet explorer 8 for windows 7 for x64-based systems (kb978207) about a week ago (or shortly after then) i started having problems with lots of programs crashing or refusing to start all all. All of the ones that give a meaningful crash report pinpoint urlmon.dll as the source of the problem. This only seems to be affecting the 32-bit version of urlmon.dll (in the syswow64 folder), since i can run ie 64-bit just fine. I can only assume that the file somehow got corrupted during the process of installing the update.

How can i revert the installed update? It's not showing up in the view installed updates window. Failing that, (or if it turns out that's not the cause of the problem) how can i get a clean copy of the file from my install cds? I tried booting up the cd and getting a recovery console, but using the 64-bit cd the syswow64 folder was pretty much empty (stands to reason), and using the 32-bit cd it wouldn't give me a console at all (on account of this being a 64-bit install).

If anyone has any ideas, that'd be grand. I tried sfc /scannow, and that confirmed that there is a problem in urlmon.dll, but it said it was unable to repair the file. I'd rather not have to do a full reinstall over a single file, especially since this is a relatively new install anyway.
I've included the crash log from internet explorer (32-bit), but other programs are giving similar results.

Security Patch Is Causing Pc To Crash And Not Boot Up

I have windows updates set to the recommended automatic so i didn't really anticipate a nightmare when instead of clicking the shut down option like normal, i pressed the power down option that allowed the latest windows update including the new security patch to be installed. When i tried to power up my laptop again it would only boot for a second before abruptly switching off. It did this several times with the switch off so abrupt that i initially thought it was a power issue, but when windows repair came on, it held power fine ruling my first thought out.

The first attempt to repair did not fix the issue as on restart the laptop again randomly cut off during booting up. After more attempts to switch on, windows repair came on again but in this case after ten minutes of "attempting to repair" it came back with a result that it could not. I did however get to the option to do a system restore which thankfully appears to have worked. I am however faced with the problem of windows once again wanting me to update my system. After what happened earlier i am not keen to do so. Is there any way around this so that this update and patch will not install or that can be installed without the nightmare of it causing the laptop to repeatedly crash after. Operating software is vista.

Flash Player Causing Blue Screen Error

I have recently bought a new system. Everything runs perfectly except for one critical problem; i can't view flash videos or anything played in a web browser by flash player. Animated flash advertisements will load to the first couple of frames, i will hear a bit of noise and then a brief 1-2 second system hang and straight in to a blue screen. Same goes for youtube etc, might see a frame, if that, a brief noise and hang/blue-screen. This has occurred since i have purchased the pc.

I have attempted to fix the problem by updating my graphics drivers to the latest, updating flash player to the latest, updating sound drivers to the latest.

System:amd i5 750 ati radeon 5870 realtek audio i am just viewing the blue-screen dump file, there is no bug check string, however it seems to indicate an amd/graphics driver causing the conflict.

Usb Devices - Flash / Hard Drive Causing Bsod

I am completely stumped as to why my flash drive (verbatim 16 gb) and my external hard drive both seem to be causing windows 7 to crash. At first, it only seemed to happen when i tried to save a word file to the flash drive (so i thought it was an issue with that device) - but when i tried to transfer files to my external hard drive, i got another bsod. Oddly, i have no trouble opening and saving to a onenote notebook file on the flash drive - but i don't know what that means.

Idt High Definition Audio Codec Driver Causing Problem

Idt high defintion audio codec driver causing problems with windows 7 after upgrade. Driver upgrade is not working, due to "digital signature". At some point after upgrading to windows 7 my sound driver began giving me problems. It would lock up any program that attempted to use sound, even simple sounds such as the "ding" sound in windows explorer.

I attempted to upgrade my driver to it's most recent version through the hp website, but after installing the driver, it says that my "digital signature" cannot be verified. (Code 52). Hp offered no support, neither did the manufacturer of the driver, idt.

Ati Radeon X300 Graphics Drivers Causing Laggy Flash Video Playback

Ati radeon x300 graphics drivers causing laggy flash video playback in all web browsers, under new windows 7 x64 install. I am having a problem with an ati radeon x300 driver and just wondered if you might be able to help?

I basically did a clean install of windows 7 on my pentium 3. 0ghz with 3gb ram and everything worked great. However, i installed an updated video driver for my ati radeon x300 and installed photoshop cs4 and also a reg entry which adobe offer to force enable hardware acceleration when the option is not available in your display adaptor properties.

Anyway since i installed cs4 and ran the new drivers and reg entry flash video playback within all my browsers has suffered. It is ok when small, but when full screen it drops frames and is slow and laggy. Another thing i noticed is 720p youtube playback is very laggy and before it used to play fine.

Anyway i booted in xp (i have a dual boot system) and tried to run flash videos and they did the same. However in my xp config i can lower the hardware acceleration which i did (by 1 notch) and it fixed the issue.

However in windows 7 & i have this new driver installed which doesn't seem to support the changing of hardware acceleration. I am pretty sure if i lower it it will be fine but i can't get to the setting. I tried uninstalling the card and installing the older drivers in safe mode but it wouldn't let me. Does anyone know how i can lower hardware acceleration so i can get these videos playing back properly?

.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.

Non Stop Update

This morning i started my computer a hp laptop, running windows vista ultima 32 bit, once started it showed a windows automatic update notice. I clicked to start it as i always have, never had a problem before. It started the update, i went back to what i was doing, while it was working i was checking my email as i haven't been on my computer since saturday afternoon.

When i finished and the update was finished, i restarted it, where it went to "update configuring: stage 1 of 3". It will not complete "stage 3 of 3- 0% complete", where it hang up, then restarts to start the same thing all over again. But it starts at stage 3 of 3 and will not even get to the password section.

I've spent 5 hours trying everything i could think of, safe mode start, everything i try does the same thing once it restarts it goes directly to the update stage 3 of 3 - 0% complete again. I let it try this 20 times in a row once, checked internet connection with another computer, no problem. Will not go past the update 3 of 3. I guess stage 1 and 2 completed as it always starts with the stage 3 of 3 update.

Repairing Update

When windows update page loads up i get a pop-up "website wants to install add-on; windows update from "ms windows component publisher", if you trust and want, click here. Then the page freezes up. Dd-on won't install. In order to get updates to work i have to set my ie8 security settings to low and then enable the unsecured settings:

Download signed active x controls
Download unsigned active x controls
Initialize & script active x controls not marked safe for scripting

Then i have to refresh the wu page a few times to get it working. I'm using xp media and it i think i didn't have this trouble until i downloaded the last "root certificate" update. I have tried re-installing ie8 and played with the dep, but no luck.

Update Kb2286198

Windows xp home edition v. 2002 sp3, avg 9, mcfee personal firewall plus, outlook express 6. Please can you helpfter windows update kb2286198 was installed my system was running approx 5 mins before rebooting itself. After the reboot it displayed a boxed error stating "system has recovered from a serious error". This happened a few times during the day before i uninstalled kb2286198. I ran for a while after the uninstall then my screen went blank (power to it was on). The system remained running. The only way to get the screen back was to reboot. Fter a few mins it then rebooted itself with the same box message system error etc.

I ran for a while then lost the use of outlook express 6. It would not run. On 9th aug i decided to restore my system back a long way before kb2286198 and restored to the 28/7/10 system checkpoint. Ll day everything appeared ok. 10/8/10 morning turned system on. It crashed 3 times in a row all at the stage of loading the desktop icons.

The fourth time it displayed the boxed message  system has recovered from a serious error error signature:bccode:c2 bcp1:00000007 bcp2:00000cd4 bcp3:bafaffff bcp4:00740072 os ver:5_1_2600 sp:3_0 product i 768_1 creating temp files mini081010-03.dmp & sysdata.xml

I am not sure what to do next as clearly kb2286198 has affected the os in such a way that restore points do not correct it. Will i have to go back to my orig xp disc and try running a repair or a clean installation?If so what will i lose?

Update Freezing

I used to have the windows 7 beta. While using it, it constantly gave pointer errors and blue screened after 2-3 min of use. So as soon as it was released, naturally i re-installed it on the laptop. After i installed it, it keeps freezing after about 5-10 min of use for about 15-30 seconds each. While i find this completely annoying it is bearable. Yesterday there was an updated needed to be installed. It kept freezing so a shut-down was impossible. But after awhile i was about to shut down so that the installation of the update could be installed.

My problem is that this was around 8:00 pm last night. I woke up this morning, it was still installing 1 of 2 updates. Now, being 11:15, it is still at 1 of 2 updates with no progress being made it looks like. I'm afraid to force shut it down in this process and loosing my data on the computer. Is there anything that can be done, or corrected for this problem?

Sysprep And Update

I need some windows 7 machines for testing. I have a ten machine license. How do i keep the base machine up to date on windows update? I would like to create a base machine that has windows 7 installed. I would like to keep it up to date via windows update. When i need to do testing i will clone the base vm and create as many environments as needed (up to the ten machine license).

How do i keep the base machine up to todate? Should i create a vm with windows 7 installed and keep it up to date and when i need clones for testing run sysprep and use the syspreped image to create the clones? Is there an easier way to do this?

Restore And Update

When you use window restore and restore your pc back to an earlier date. Windows update (i have it set to download but let me decide what updates to install) will re-offer updates that were installed after the date of your restore point. You can see these updates in windows hostory.

Are these window updates being offered because they are no longer installed even though they are shown in history and you should click install, or, are they still installed even though the restore point is before they were offered, and not deleted when restoring to an earlier date and if you select install you are merely over-writing the same update?
