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?

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.

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?

Microsoft Works Calendar Problems

I have a dell inspiron 14 running windows 7 and microsoft works came installed. I can't open the calendar. Error "works cannot access one or more files it needs to run the calendar. Try reinstalling works, and then starting the program again. " It did not come with a backup disk or any disk for that matter. So are they wanting me to purchase a whole new microsoft works program just for the calendar to work? I don't think so! Any suggestions?

Microsoft Security Essentials Turns Off

I own an hp amd dual core with 3 gb ddr2 lots of disk space, windows 7 professional 32 bit os. I replaced comodo security suite with microsoft security essentials. At random intervals but most often after a reboot, i notice a flag on the action center task bar icon. When i click on it, i am informed that microsoft security essentials and windows defender are turned off and my computer is not protected. Usually i am able to click on the displayed links to activate both programs.

Sometimes i have to restart my computer to activate one or both of the programs. The unanticipated and unannounced shut down of mse makes me doubt the wisdom of using this program for anti-virus protection.

Microsoft Security Bulletin Ms08-069

Microsoft security bulletin ms08-069 – critical. I installed this update and now cod4: mw 2 blue screens after a few minutes of game-play. This pc has never blue screened before and now i can't play my favorite game. I tried to use system restore to go back to yesterday, but avg in all its wisdom keeps blocking restore from working after restart, saying no files were changed because of antivirus. I tried to turn it off, keeps doing it. Maybe i should completely uninstall it.

I might just say f it and reformat now. Useless updates. Do not install "microsoft security bulletin ms08-069 – critical" (955218). My beef with microsoft now is, why can't i uninstall the update? It isn't located on the uninstall section, you can only review your update history. Why can't i uninstall the security update? What's the point? I felt like i bought a car with no wheels and a printer with no usb cable (hp printers; nice joke).

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?

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.

Security Update Kb954430 Wont Install

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.

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 Update Deleted All Files

How do i figure out which update did this so i can get rid of it!Ok, here it is. I am really getting upset with microsoft and their updates! This is the second time their updates have done something to my computer! The first time i had to reformat my computer. This time or rather last night i allowed microsoft to install their updates to my computer. After they were through i turned my computer off to go to bed.

And when i turned it back on, i see a message as it is going to the log on screen that says personalizing your desk top this may take a few minutes and when i logged on to my desk top everything and i means everything that i had saved in my c drive no longer existed! I can't believe it! Do you think system restore will bring it all back? Or what else should i try!

Microsoft Update Thinks My Pc Is A Mac

I am running xp pro sp3 (32 bit) and ie 6 sp3. I get updates through automatic updates which is set to download but allow me to manually apply the updates. If i attempt to check for updates via the web site link on the automatic updates applet screen then i get this message:

"Thank you for your interest in obtaining updates from our site. This website is designed to work with microsoft operating systems only. To find updates for microsoft products that are designed for macintosh operating systems, please visit "

Obviously my user agent is messed up. This behavior started after i cleaned my system using the ms malicious software removal tool downloaded from in response to a virus infection. As far as i can tell my system has been virus free since being cleaned but the user agent is of course no longer what the ms update site wants to see.

Running from ie 6 yeilds:

Your user-agent string

Mozilla/4. 0 (compatible; msie 999. 1; unknown)

I run symantec endpoint protection version 11. 0. 2020. 56 which i update automatically and regularly using live update. I am not using any other third party firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware or other anti-malware s/w. I do not subscribe to msn.

I have hesitated to update to ie 7 because i suspect that installing that on top of an installation where the user-agent registry or other settings are already bad would not necessarily be the wisest course. Can you assist me?
