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.

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.

Repeated Shutdown Pc To Tv

1. I think my pc cannot find the tv.

2. The pc (win 7) shuts down quickly four times and recovers quickly four times, then goes to a blue screen (with a lot of text).

3. The blue screen last just a moment, if fact i cannot read the text.

4. Then the pc reboots and ask if "i want to reboot in regular (or safe) mode).

5. The steps above then repeat, except maybe one out of ten times it finds the tv and all is right with my pc to tv world. What to do?

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. Any info on how to solve my problem would be greatly appreciated ty for your time drm my pc specs intel core i5 650 3. 20gh biostar th55b hdgskill  ddr3 1300 single channel 4gb ram evga 8400gs 512mb ddr2 graphic card

Abnormal Program Shutdown

When i close an email in outlook (2007), the whole outlook program closes; same with word docs. 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 . . .

Shutdown Button Sometimes Deactivated

I have a problem with windows 7 professional 64 bit. Sometimes the shutdown button is deactivated, i can see the button but can't click on it. Only with ctrl+alt+del it's possible to shutdown, log off etc. The error appears randomly so sometimes it works, and i can shutdown, log off etc. With clicking the button. It isn't a user-right based error because i have the problem with admin rights and also with normal user rights. I don't have a policy running where the shutdown button is deactivated. I installed the os with help of the waik tools, sysprep and a unattend.xml file but i don't set anything like this in the unattend file. Does somebody have any idea what it could be?

Shutdown Errors & Support

This seems to be a recurring theme on all the win 7 forums, the machine won't shut down properly. Select shut down, screens goes to the "shutting down" view, but the circle icon freezes after a few seconds and the machine hangs.

When i reboot, windows does not report a failure, it just boots normally and works fine, but come shut down, problems again.

This is happening everytime i use the machine, though sometimes i get the odd bsod thrown in at shut down as well, just for good measure.

I have used the internal checking within win 7 to try to find the issue, but nothing works, i don't want to have to re-install win 7 ultimate, a couple of weeks after installing it, but that is looking like the only option and that is not guaranteed to fix the issue.

I have tried to contact microsoft through their online "help & support" forum, but they say my version of win 7 ultimate is not activated (yes it is), then when i enter my product code, it says because i am not registered, i have to pay £45 for 1 hour of support.

Me pay them to have them fix a problem with their software! I thought vista was bad, this is just vista 1. 5 with bugs, should l have stuck to vista.

Anybody got any ideas on what is causing this, as lots of people are seeing this issue, yet no support answers seem to give a resolution

System specs are

Win 7 ultimate
Quad core processer
6gb of ram
2 x 512mb nvidia graphic cards working in sli mode
2 x 1tb sata hdd
28" hd monitor

Win7 Random Shutdown

I am using win 7 ultimate 32 bit, upgraded over vista home premium 32 bit. My laptop is randomly shutting down, it never done it while i had vista installed. It is not going in to sleep mode or anything similar, as some have suggested, it completely shuts down with no warning but can be booted up straight away. The only time i can make it happen for sure is when i run the windows experience index, it gets near to the end and then shuts down. I used to be able to run the wei before so i don't know why it does it now.

Any ideas as this is really annoying me?

Instant Shutdown Using Flash Player

I upgraded to windows 7 professional 32-bit a couple months ago from windows xp on my gateway laptop. I don't know why my computer keeps shutting down everytime i play either a video or games mainly using adobe flash player. This always happens while doing any flash applets, surfing the web, and playing games on my computer. It will freeze up for about a second and then just shut off completely to immediate power off.

It won't even allow me to restart right after it shut downs. The computer will act like it's going to restart & then shut down again a few times. I have to wait about 10-15 minutes to be able to restart it. I have uninstalled & reinstalled flash player, restored the computer to a previous state, made sure that all my drivers are updated & even tried to the system recovery/troubleshoot in windows 7. This only started after i upgraded.

Bsod - Usbhub.sys On Shutdown / Hibernate

A few days ago my computer with a recently installed windows 7 build 7100 start getting a bsod every single time i shut it down, restarted it or set it to hibernate. I've tried updating all ubs drivers in device manager but they were all up to date and didn't help. I tried restarting it with not a single usb device plugged in. I normally only have a usb mouse and sometimes a exhd or ipod plugged in, standard stuff. I tried doing my own research for the problem elsewhere but couldn't find any answer.

I also tried windows update and installed these three new optional updates but that failed to make any difference either. What other information do you need about my computer to diagnose the problem?

After An Accidental Shutdown The 32-bit Program Flickers

Dreamweaver 8 worked fine for the first few days on my windows 7 computer. Oddly the companion program, fireworks, is just fine. I accidentally hit the power strip and turned the computer off. Since then it it won't open. When i try to open it, it flickers on, then disappears. Same thing happens when i try to get the 8. 02 patch from macromedia.

Yes, it's an older version, but i am reluctant to buy cs4 since it's not quite compatible and they're coming out with cs5 sometime this year. Does the flickering signal something worse with my computer? Any way to get this 32-bit program running again?

Forced Shutdown - Anti Virus Issues

I have a new laptop with win7-hp. This was my stupidity, but since i had 1 license remaining, i tried to install bit defender 2009 on the machine. (Learned later that there is no compatibility with 2009). The machine slowed to a crawl, and then i had to force shutdowns (maybe three times) before i got smart and used msconfig to disable bd at start which allow me to uninstall bd.

The machine runs fine now, but i get trend micro notifications saying because of the forced shut downs, the trend updates are not taking. Would appreciate any help. Does windows have any built-in diagnostic capabilities other than defrag (which i ran) to help with this?

Blue Screen Memory Dump During Shutdown

So i am setting up windows 7 enterprise 32-bit in a computer lab, and most of the time when i perform a shutdown or restart i get a blue screen memory dump. I think it has something to do with an apple software product as the problem started showing up after i installed itunes and quicktime. I tried uninstalling all of the apple software and deleted all i could find in program files, but it has made no difference. I tried installing a hotfix that was said to fix this problem, but it didn't. (404160_intl_i386) my blue screen info is: stop:0x0000000a (0x8ac65bf0, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x8286f1b9)

Shutdown Hangs / Internet Would Drop Out Randomly

Okay for a while i've had what appeared to be two separate problems with 7:

1) the internet would drop out randomly (it would show the little triangle sign over the bars in the corner). Clicking on the small icon shows the box as usual but any attempt to connect/disconnect, refresh has no effect. On a couple of occasions after clicking a few time is tells me that explorer.exe needs to be restarted (or words to that effect). In any case restarting it just replaces the little triangle with the spinning circle - which last for as long as the computer is left on. In both cases no connection to the internet is possible. I have troubleshooted numerous times to no success, checked all my passwords and thats fine and i can see no discernible pattern in these drop-outs.

2) the second problem i was having was shutdown hangs. It would process everything as normal and then hang where it says 'windows shutting down', i believe. I checked my motherboard (an asus) and corrected that and the problem seemed to have gone away.

Eventually though it reappeared and i relaised that whenever the internet dropped out the computer would hang at shutdown. Now whenever the internet drops out i have to force it to shutdown and restart the computer again. When the internet drops out, as far as i'm aware, every program works fine (such as word etc. ) I just can't connect to the internet or shutdown the computer.

To summarise:

1) internet drops out (happens regardless of internet connection) showing yellow triangle icon
2) computer won't shutdown after this has happened.

I've searched these forums to no avail, so does anyone out there have any ideas what this could be?

.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 Not Working

My windows update does not work. At all. It asks me every day to install updates automatically but when i click on the icon, it does nothing so i have not gotten my updates. If i go control panel>security etc > and click windows update, so i could do it manually or change my settings, it firstly does not open windows update for like 5 minutes (it gets confused) or restarts windows explorer. When i can finally get to windows update i there is a big red x there or smth and when i press install updates it says that it can not be done because the program does not work and it also does not let me to change settings.

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.

Other pcs on the network update just fine. Product is activated. Any suggestions on how to get this laptop updated?

Update Error

Windows defender message says windows defender is not working properly. I was to go online to get microsoft support knowledge base article (kb) but i did not understand what to do. What prompted my concern was 1) my windows could no longer get updates and 2) a skype message telling me that i had malware on my computer - but i do not know if this message is legitimate. I do  not know for sure if i have the malware or not. In any event i am not able to receive updates.
