Security Update Kb972270 Failed Install

Security update kb972270 will not install. I've checked the services. Msi for windows installer, automatic updates, background intelligent transfer, and cryptographic services to make sure they are on automatic and started (per microsoft chat); i've disabled my av (endpoint), checked to make sure all other installs are done, and it will not install. Anyone have any ideas? This is the message after the failed install:

Installation failure

Update Kb972270 Error 80070643

I have recently found out that my laptop is not updating properly, such that windows update always gets stuck at kb972270, giving error 80070643. I run win 7, and i do not have office 2003, which seems related to the error, the patch is regrading some font security patch, which i think does not concern .net, but still i tried reinstalled .net to no avail.

Could any one kindly inform me if this is the problem with the patch or just my laptop, because i do believe that there was once when i accidentally shut my laptop off(pull plug) when it was doing a shutdown update. Perhaps that was the root of the problem, but i did do a recovery after that.

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:
Hkey_local_machinesoftwareclassesmsxml2. Domdocument. 4. 0clsid verify that you have sufficient access to that key. I am trying to install sp3, and it will refuse that, too, because an update is not installed. I am just running a plain version of windows xp home.

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?

Failed Automatic Update

I tried to update the latest microsoft updates last thursday and after 4 hours the system froze, so i canceled job and went to sign off and got the usual message "updates being applied" and 12 hours later it was still on 1 of 14, so i powered off. I then went back in and found that all updates had failed. I can not find a way to try and reinstall the updates, and when ever i try to sign off it says "installing updates 1- xxx and just stays like that for hours. Had lunch with a friend yesterday, who told me she had same problem as well as another friend that she spoke to. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Security Update Kb974571

On my aunt's computer i cannot get this update to install. I have done a search previously and one person mentioned that i should run the genuine windows program, i had to do the same thing previously similar to xp sp3 on her computer (i am thinking the hdd may be dying but i will worry about that later).

In a previous thread here, http://social. it is similar to that with the same error code. I keep the anti-virus programs up-to-date the best i can but can't get it to run, everything else works fine.

I don't know what else to do. My next question is if i wanted to go the route of format and reinstall, can i do that with the windows 7 home premium upgrade disk? Or, would i need to reformat to the oem dell software and then re-run the w7 hp upgrade program?

Microsoft Works 9 Security Update

I have been trying for the past 3 days now to install the microsoft works 9 security update onto my computer. I have tried through windows update and i have tried manually on the website (even where it lists that the new update is not recognizing office 2007 on computers). Still nothing! I need to update my computer fully! What do i do since it's not recognizing the folder on my computer for being installed already and not updating it? It tells me that once the folder is not recognized i have to cancel the installation and i need to be the administrator to give permission (which i am already). Help?

Security Essentials Update Failure

I ran the windows update for this but it started asking for an install package in g:67fa60492e8182946cb5c092964ccfec which does not exist on my machine. When i clicked on browse is it looking for 'mp_ambits. Msi'  when i browsed to the file location in the backup folder it deleted the file but would not install security essentials.

Anyway, why is it looking for a folder that does not exist? I have this problem on one of my windows xp machines also, except there it is looking for non-existing folder and drives for essentials, sql 2005, visual studio 2005, framework 1. 1 and more.

Failed Product Key After Recent Update

A quick idea of what i'm trying to deal with. 6 moths ago i purchased and installed a sealed retail version of windows 7 ultimate, it has only ever been installed on one computer, and has spent the rest of the time hidden away in a chest with all of the other genuine microsoft operating systems i have (lots all of the way back to windows 3. 11 for workgroups). Yesterday the computer had a microsoft update downloaded and installed, since then i have a black background and a warning that i would have one day to activate with another code.

As this is a genuine copy of windows 7 and i can prove that to anyone who cares to ask me to, i would like to know why this has been blocked. I would have contacted microsoft via phone, but unlike the company i work for, that does not appear to be an option. I have installed it again on a second pc to see if it was a virus or other code causing the issue, information from mgadiag;

Diagnostic report (1. 9. 0027. 0):

Crash / Bsod After Downloading Security Update

After receiving a mcafee update in late july my computer asked to restart. During starting up my computer got to the password page and then crashed to bsod. I restarted it in safe mode and then did a recovery as suggested which seemed to solve the problem. However my mcafee security center continually dropped protection so i contacted mcafee and they advised me to uninstall the old mcafee and download the new version. After download my computer crashed as before and on contacting mcafee was told there was an issue that their engineers are working on, but gave me no time frame for a resolution.

I have since attempted to download kaspersky security software, but after using the scan and finding nothing the security centre requested a restart after a update.guess what happened. Crash to bsod again!. My computer works fine after the removal of the software once i, ve employed recovery, but this obviously leaves me with only windows defender and no anti-virus software. Is this a mcafee issue or has their software caused some damage to my windows software or computer hardware? Please help i'm feeling a little defenseless.

Security Update For Office Excel 2003

Said updates repeatedly attempt to install, which creates a restore point and stalls out the hp6663us running vista ultimate 64 version 6 sp 1 and norton 360 version 3. 8 until the update fails, which frees the laptop until the next time, usually the next day.

I spent hours with hp chat trying to resolve the issue but with no success. Update history shows this has been happening since at least 12/23/08. Other than for turning off microsoft update, how do i keep un-installable updates from wasting my time?

Microsoft Security Essential (mse) Fail To Update

I have problems with my mse. I cannot update the virus definition automatically. So far i always update it manually (download the virus def then run it to my computer) i connect to internet through wireless network available in my apartment. The network is stable and quite fast. The first time i tried to update, it worked, but not anymore after.

It always give me the message :
Error code: 0x8024402c

Error description: microsoft security essentials couldn't install the definition updates because the proxy server or target server names can't be resolved. I searched on the microsoft website about the error code and had executed all the advices given but unfortunately it didn't work, at least for my computer. I'm not a knowledgeable person in computer, but i don't think it is the problem of internet connection, since i still able use my internet very well.

I turned-off my windows firewall and tried to update, but still didn't work. I didn't use any other antivirus or firewall software other than microsoft and i'm quite satisfied, at least until now.
However, to download the virus def 2 - 3 times a week (for manual update) is not a good thing, since i know the mse has auto update feature. Can any of you find the solution for this problem? I really appreciate your feedback.

Security Issues On A Fresh Install

My question is are the issues outlined in the numbered points 2) to 5) below likely security breaches of a fresh install of windows 7.

By way of background i was using vista, found remote access software in use everytime i installed it, and as i couldn't be sure of the integrity of the vista install files held on partition, i decided to buy windows 7 upgrade and see if that could be installed securely. I use a dsl wifi router. I used for this install trend micro web protection add-on, pc tools threat fire and zone alarm extreme security. The laptop the install was on is behind closed doors, i.e. , Only myself could have had access (as far as you can be sure about these things at least, though i do use a bios password).

1) i installed windows 7 update fri 12th mar just after midnight. The hard disk was completely reformated from the command prompt (not a quick format). I turn off remote access, file and printer sharing and public folder sharing and disable autoplay and install usb disable software. I also install software to show me when / people have been logged in. I use a public dns.

2) fri 10. 50am, trend micro gave a 'bot found: malicious software launched by remote control' warning (i rebooted and ran a scan for viruses - no results).

3) fri 10. 50am threatfire reports: c:program fileswindows media playerwmpnetwk.exe 'this program is attempting to modify your computer so that another program can access it' - this was supsicious because i had been running windows 7 for a while, and so why just now decide to run this program, especially when wmp media sharing is disabled by default.

3) fri 12. 50pm threatfire reports: 'a system dll has been copied and modified', the file being c:windowssystem32sppsvc.exe

4) sun 16. 30pm threatfire reports: 'a system dll has been copied and modified', the file being c:windowssystem32loginui.exe

5) yesterday evening (sun), a message appeared lower right on the desktop that my install of windows 7 was not a legal copy and the desktop went black, the system info screen showed no product key and no option to set it. This fixed itself this morning (mon) for some odd reason.

6) i have used zone alarm's deep and rootkit scans with no results.

I run a website that gets over 500 unique visits each day, and have been for 3 years now, but in the past few months i have found myself heavily under attack from hackers (this could be down to my first press coverage).

I shall try a fresh install with a few changes, but otherwise will also set up openbsd. However, any hints on setting up a secure windows install would be greatly appreciated!
