Laptop Restarts After Installing Updates Without Prompting


I just purchased a new laptop with windows 7. It has several times restarted after installing updates without prompting me first so i lose all my work. Vista used to warn me and let me postpone restarting my computer. Is something similar possible in windows 7? Thanks for any suggestions

Stop The Prompting For Updates To Download

Windows update keeps prompting me to download and install ie8. I am happy with ie7 and would like to stop this harassment, especially now after reading some of the threads on ie8. I thought there was a way with xp to stop the prompting for updates you choose not to download, is this the case with vista?

Automatic Updates Restarts

I have windows 7 with automatic updates on. What really frustrating to me is that whenever i am working on my computer, the windows update decides to restart my computer, terminating all applications without warning or notification to my knowledge. Due to this, my documents in word were closed down without saving and everything i had on the desktop were terminated. It was a force restart and the computer did that automatically without my knowledge. It is very frustrating and i think that whoever designed it this way is not intelligent. This type of design in the system is flawed and should be fixed immediately.

I should have complete control over my computer, not windows having control over me. I should be able to control or postpone the restart, but the computer did not ask me that at all, it just restarted without warning. I am furious by this and would like to know if there is a solution. I switched the settings, now, to "download updates but only i select which to install". Even with the automatic installation of updates settings on, the computer should ask me if i would like to restart now or later, it should not automatically restart. Thank you for your time.

Installing Updates

Bought an e-machines pc for christmas 2007. In december 2009 i had a problem with the computer which has recently been diagnosed has a common fault with the motherboard which i have since replaced. I have spent the last two weeks trying to get my system back up and running after replacing the motherboard. I have re-installed the windows vista that came with the pc and the computer works fine. I then download avg internet security and use the computer absolutely fine. However each time i switch off the pc and then try to switch it back on it tells me that the system registry is missing or corrupt and to boot from the disc to do the repair.

I do this and again the computer works fine. However the internet security and anything else i had on there is missing including any documents i had saved. This happens everytime switch off the computer. Having looked on this site i found that i had no service packs installed so downloaded sp1 and sp2. These wouldn't run and the site advised me to install an updater add on. This wouldn't install either. My automatic updates wont work either. I'm not computer illiterate but i'm no expert either so please help.

Installing Updates Difficulties

I am having difficulties installing an update. I am getting an error code of code 643: windows update has encountered an unknown error. The update i'm trying to install is microsoft .net framework 1. 1 sp1 security update for windows vista and windows server 2008 (kb979906). Please let me know if this is a necessary update, and, if not, tell me how to have my computer stop picking it up. I'm constantly trying to install this update because my computer will not let it go, but it also refuses to install said update. I hope i have given enough information for you to work with.

Problem Installing Updates

Updates for vista problems i have a computer that has vista on it. When i run the updates it says that there are 104 updates available. When ever i try to update it gets stuck on the 3rd one and will not go any farther. I have to eventually turn it off with the power button instead of safely shutting it down. Is it just because there are soo many updates. Should i try just a few at a time. Or is there possibly another problem. Right now i am trying to just do 8 updates but i'm not sure that it's going to complete it either.

Problem With Microsoft Updates Not Installing

I have a new hp dv6 laptop with windows 7. I also have norton 360 protection on this machine as well as the microsoft office 2010 beta on this computer. Since beginning to use the new system, i receive regular notices from windows auto update for updates available for download; which i regularly allow. The day after i installed the office 2010 - beta i received the following two update notices:

1. Update for microsoft office 2010 file validation - beta (kb976133), 32 bit extension
2. Security update for microsoft works 9 (kb967044)

The problem that i'm having is that when i try to install these updates i receive the following error message for both downloads after they don't install:

Code 646 windows update encountered an unknown error.

None of the available online fixes or troubleshooting seem to work, and windows auto update continues to find and notify me of these 2 updates. The same problem occurs every time i try to install the downloads.

Tonight i received 2 other update notices along with the 2 that won't install; at the moment all other updates seem to install just fine. Since (at least) one of these problem updates appears to be a security update, is my system encountering a problem installing them because of the norton 360 software? Any help you can give me in getting these updates to install or quit appearing through windows auto update?

Pc Restarts Randomly

Okay so i have a relatively new velocity micro gaming computer that is about 3 weeks old and i have recently been experiencing one big problem. My computer just randomly restarts for no apparent reason (usually when i leave it alone for like half an hour to watch tv or something) and when it starts back up it gives an error message like windows did not shut down properly and it gives me the option to enter safe mode. I am currently running the paid version of norton internet security and i have already scanned my computer for viruses (full scan not quick scan).

In addition i have updated windows with all the recommended settings and updated my nvidia gt 220 video card driver from their website. I have performed all sorts of scans but i don't see any real problem that could be causing it. I am pretty sure it is not power-related because i'm using a good outlet with a surge panel. I also went into my system settings and unchecked the thing that says restart on system failure, but the problem still persists.

Update Restarts Computer

Each night windows update restarts my computer and updates my driver software for wireless. I have to roll back the driver to get the wireless to work. Not sure why this is happening or what the root cause is, but each night the driver is updated by windows update and the wireless radio won't work. I then go and roll back the driver to the previous version and it works perfectly. I have 64 bit windows 7 hp laptop with an atheros ar9285 802. 11 b/g wifi adapter. If i click update driver in the device manager the same thing occurs.

Computer Freezes And Restarts

I have bought a new computer in late december 2009 and from the beginning i've been having two problems, the computer randomly restarts and more seldom but still a problem, the computer freezes. These events can happen with a frequency less than one time each day and sometimes as often as three times a day. The computer can be on reasonable load or hardly any load at all when it happens.

My computer parts looks like the following and i've got windows on one of my two ssds:

Western digital caviar black wd2001fass 64mb 2tb
Lg bh08ls20
Corsair dominator gt ddr3 pc12800/1600mhz cl8 4x2gb
Gainward geforce gtx 275 896mb physx pci-express 2. 0, 2xdvi
Gigabyte geforce 210 oc hdmi 512mb
Antec p183
Asus p7p55d-e premium
Antec cp-850 850w
Microsoft windows 7 ultimate eng
Intel core i7 860
Intel x25-m g2 160gb
Logitech wave keyboard (sv)
Lg w3000h

The first time i've received a message when windows was shutting down was just a while ago, and it said something about the memory. I have run memtest86 which showed no problems earlier. I can't open the mini-dump file but got hte following message this one time (have not had any messages like these before and the event viewer hasn't given me any useful information).

Pc Crashes And Automatically Restarts

Original title: pc has become massively unstable when i first installed windows 7 my dell desktop was reinvigorated and ran like a fresh young athlete it woke fast and went back to sleep as quickly.

However this is but a distant memory as my once lithe machine is now nothing more than a grumpy unpredictable demon.

My problems are not measured in days or hours my problems can best be grouped in minutes.

1. The machine will simply re-start sometimes i get a warning more often i do not with absolutely no explanation.

2. Firefox 3. 6 crashes normally within minutes of loading, once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

3. Chrome crashes normally within minutes of loading, once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

4. Internet explorer crashes normally within minutes of loading; once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

5. Windows desktop manager is either corrupt or just plain angry as it crashes without warning or seeming reason.

Anyone with any suggestions as to where to start looking for the problem, or better still a solution will be listened to with my full attention! The sooner the better please as one more week of this and i am going back to xp pro!

Pc Restarts Each Time I Try To Shut Down

I've looked through the forums to see if i could find a solution to this issue, but the most i've been able to find is that there might be an incompatible driver somewhere on my system that's causing this to occur. When i click on "shut down", the computer does shut down, but then it turns back on after a few seconds. I had a clean install of windows 7 ultimate (64-bit)done on the computer to wipe everything off of it and start from scratch, and this still occurs. My computer is an mpc clientpro 424. I've tried disabling automatic restart, and the issue still occurs. Can anyone help?

Win7 Restarts On Startup Periodically

Thought it was the motherboard at first, but still sporadically does a restart within a minute or two of starting up, especially if i try to go into firefox or aim within that time frame.

The screen goes black, it says "no signal" then resets.

I check the minidump with windows debug and it comes back as the potential problem being "hardware", so i'm currently getting the replace motherboard checked at asus to see if it was truely a motherboard problem.

I asked a repairman at a local computer store and he suggested to reinstall windows from scratch, and when i mentioned that i upgraded from xp to 7 he said "even microsoft suggests to never upgrade, even from vista". That would not explain the hardware failure though.

Absolutely nothing else goes wrong if it gets past that that 2 minute mark, and the problem seems to be random: sometimes taking 2 days between restarts on startup, all the way to almost a month.

Did memory diagnostic and the memory is fine, hard drive is running fine, i updated the drivers twice on the video card.

This problem seemed to have been prevalent since i upgraded to windows 7, and i fixed up the registry with ccleaner recently.

Suddenly Computer Stops With Blue Screen And Restarts

My system is win 7. I recently got this new notebook. I thought i was having problem with anti-virus but i recently came to know about this blue screen of death. Suddenly the computer stops in between anytime with the blue screen showing up and computer restarts. I recently uninstalled norton which was a free-version which i got with notebook and installed kaspersky. I ve now even removed kaspersky and installed bit-defender but problem is still occurring. No virus detected by both.

I ve even tried to restore the notebook to the day i bought this. But the problem is not fixed. The error message looks something like what appears in this link http://www.Gadgetlite.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/windows-7-bsod.jpg. I am worried that my new system may get hardware problems due to this.

Win 7 Freezes And Restarts When Transferring Files Through Usb

I have been having this problem since the day i got windows 7 and it is really starting to annoy me.
Any time i transfer files through any usb port the computer freezes, a buzzing noise comes from the speakers, the monitor turns off and the computer restarts. This happens when putting films on my hard drive, songs on my phone and syncing my mp3 player so that i actually can't do any of them.

I have uploaded the dump files here:

Restarts itself while "safe remove" is being performed. Also, note that the same thing happens (again, sometime!) When i physically unplug the usb drive. Same usbs on different xp machines. No problems! Where do i need to look for a solution to this. I've noticed other people having the same problem as well (googled it).

Computer Gets To "starting Windows" And Then Restarts Constantly

I just finished my first computer build. It was working fine, so i decided to take my graphics card and install it since everything else seemed good. I install it and the most recent drivers from ati. When i reboot, it gets to "starting windows" and then restarts. Safe mode still works. In my bios it says the gpu voltage is 0. 000, however the fan on the card is spinning. I've tried everything i could find on the web to no avail. Does anyone know what this mixture of symptoms could be caused by?

Updates

I installed the windows updates by their size from lower to large one throw internet by windows update, but now i found that some updates like sp2 needs some others like sp1 pre-installed. The defects i saw was bugs in display ( some part of 2 gadgets on sidebar was incomplete ) which has been solved, and the slowed windows slightly .

So what happens to my laptop which i can't find where may work improperly ? Should i uninstall all the updates and reinstall them by date ( the oldest first )?

Cannot Install Updates

I have an hp pavilion slimline with windows 7. I am having trouble with windows installer. I am not in safe mode, i have administrative rights. The message says that windows installer is in safe mode or incorrectly installed. I cannot run certain updates and i cannot install itunes64 setup. The computer runs and works great except for the installer. I am unable to use or install windows cleanup utility, etc. Any suggestions or links to fix this problem?

I was on the phone with apple support for 2 hrs. To try to get working when i bought my iphone. They suggested several things and finally suggested contacting hp, which was a joke. I do not know where or who to contact at microsoft for help. I am not very savvy with computers.
