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.

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
Error code: 0xd000007b
Try to install the update again, or request help from one of the following resources.

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.

Unable To Install Security Update Kb982665

Original title: security update kb982665hey everyone, i am running windows vista x64 based system and having some troubles trying to get one of the updates to pass. It continues to fail. The update is security update kb982665. No matter what i try, going to control panel and trying to install it from there, or manually from the microsoft website, it continues to fail. I have also tried shutting off my firewall and removing microsoft security essentials. I have also tried being a hidden admin. That doesnt seem to work either. I also have service pack 2 running as well, if that helps.

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. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/vistawu/thread/1943ff9d-e593-4bb4-af4b-06ef96eb0b5f/ 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.

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

Security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb973475) and previously_security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb969681) and previously_security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb958436) and previously_. 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 Center Can't Change Your Automatic Update Settings

Windows update cannot be opened and windows update settings cannot be changed. When you click on the windows update tab, nothing opens. If i try to change windows update settings, it displays an error message saying, "security center can't change your automatic update settings". This error message does not cite any number. As suggested to somebody in the forum with a similar problem, i tried a virus and malware scan, the result: no viruses or malware detected. Every other suggestion i found does not get me anywhere. What do you suggest?

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!

Unable To Install Ms Security Updates

I have windows vista home premium edition and microsoft office home/student 2007, installed on an hp computer. I use kaspersky anti-viral program, spybot, and malware to check for hazardous files. Recent scan with spybot revealed 7 instances of spyware and the program removed the files.

No other malicious files have been detected. Yet, i'm unable to install ms windows security updates. I even scanned my computer using the ms free scan program, nothing was detected. No viruses, no spyware, no malware. So what's the deal, why can't i install these updates?

Error Code 646 - Problem Installing Security Update For Microsoft Office

Problems installing security updates for microsoft office system and all related programs within the microsoft office system (error code 646). I have a laptop that runs windows 7 for x64 bit. Every time i try to install a security update for the microsoft office 2007 system or any of the programs therein, i get the error code 646.

Everything else seems to successfully update. This is truly aggravating because when i go to shut down my computer, i have to wait until the updates are installed before it shuts down, but then when i turn it back on and shut it off again, it still says i have to install the same updates from when i last shut down and therefore have to wait again until they are installed.

It's a never ending cycle. What the heck is wrong with microsoft office that makes it to where everyone seems to be having the same issues? Don't you think this problem needs to be corrected instead of just suggesting to download manually? Downloading manually takes too much time and honestly makes no sense. What's the point of having windows update if everyone seems to have to do the microsoft office updates manually?

Ie8 Windows Update

Windows7; 32bit; ie8 today, 3/24/10, the windows update; "update for internet explorer 8 compatibility view list for w7 (kb980302)" was installed on my pc.

Many of the websites i go to on a regular basis following the install of this update display much larger than prior to the update. So much so that i must scroll left to right to view a page. I am using a 22" monitor with the resolution set at 1680x1050. Which is the highest setting i can select, and, its the recommended setting. I have turned off compatibility view and tried changing the text size. Which i have now set at smallest but the web-pages are still much larger than before the update was installed. Seems to me microsoft messed up this one big time.

This compatibility update of course did not affect anything else other than the browser display.
Anyone else notice this change after installing this update kb980302? I don't understand why microsoft would release a compatibility update which is supposed to enhance the display of web-pages under ie8 and yet this update really in my situation, made it worse. I guess i could use system restore to go back to a point prior to this install but is there just away to un-install a kb update?

Unable To Install Security Updates For Office 2003

I have been receiving continual unable to install error messages for windows update for security updates for my ms office 2003 components beginning 04/17/2010. On 04/15/2010, an update for 2007 ms office system was auto-installed - kb981715 - as were 9 other updates. After that, all office 2003 security updates have failed. Should i uninstall the 2007 ms office system update & reattempt to install the office 2003 updates? 

Failing to have updated security for my office components is quite concerning. Update provides links for the 646 error code, but the "fix" doesn't help. Since 06/08/2010, microsoft .net framework 1. 1 sp1 security update for windows vista and windows server 2008 (kb979906) has also failed to install - error code 643. Same deal - troubleshooting process fails. How can these be problems be corrected?

Ie8 Freezes After Latest Update

To whom who can help me. Since a few days i have some freezing issues with ie8. 0 , this happened right after i updated windows again (auto update). After the update ie8. 0 freezes every 2 to 5 minutes , esp when you have more then one tab open. This seems to happen on random web-pages  (youtube, microsoft etc, etc) , it is really starting to get very annoying! , I have searched the forum already for this problem but the 'fixes' aren't working. The problem is still not solved , strangest thing is that is has been working in the current configuration without any problems until the latest update was installed.

Running on: winxp sp3 with all the latest updates , 4gb ram, 2x3. 0ghz, ie8. 0so far i tried the following:- removing the latest updates- disabled smart screen filter- no addons are loaded- updated all drivers- run several scans with malwarebytes, spybot s&d, avg , no problems were found. - Resetting immunization in spybot and then uninstalling it , problem still not solved. Resetting ie8. 0 to its default , no luck either (not even after a reboot of the pc).

Ie8 Unable To Print Since Update

I haven't used my printer for some time but this last weekend i needed to. Even after careful preparation it failed to print. I know there have been a number of updates from ms but i would not have thought that would be the problem. However that's why i'm here.

I have updated via the hp site all software and drivers for the deskjet printer although it wasn't necessary as i had previously accomplished this. Since i found the problem i have removed microsoft office, 2010, just in case this may have been a problem. I have also removed the hp printer program, twice, and reloaded it.

The printer works fine and the software does even to printing the test page but i am not able to print anything else. I'm stuck. Never experienced anything like this.

I've read a number of possible solutions both at hp and here. Here is my summary:

%Temp% doesn't work because no such file/folder exists. I cannot find the route to the supposed folders also.

Reseting browser to factory defaults as described resulted in no change.

Turned on file sharing with the same result - nothing. Read the documents on vista and windows 7 and came to the conclusion they don't apply. Finally i searched for msia (microsoft software inventory analyzer) and came up empty. I am not running it.

However i am running a perculiar program called data execution prevention which has caused me problems in other areas. Although i do not think this is the problem in this case nevertheless i have identified all of hp software and marked for bypassing dep. Having read some of the solutions and messages what strikes me is the number of ad hoc solutions, as if no one can identify why the problem occurs, especially microsoft.

I need a proper solution. The software is faulty and therefore not doing the job for which it was purchased. The solution may require the removal of the operating system and to rebuild, something i don't want to do if i am going to be in the same stupid position as i am now, but i'm prepared to do it.
