Steady State Removes Saved Information When Updates Install


We are a small school and have only been using steady state for a few months. I have found that certain information that has been saved to the computers is being erased when steady state allows updates each week. For example:

Good search has been set as our default webpage and our school listed as the charity of choice. The school name will stay until tuesday nights we we leave the computer up to install updates. Once the updates are installed the school name is gone.

Now i think the same thing is happening with the new copier we set up last month. I have access codes for each teacher saved under their computer login. This is the second time that they were able to print all week, but after updates on tuesday several are missing the access codes.

Any suggestions?

Will Upgrade Removes Installed Programs?

I purchased a new hp in october of 2009 and realized that it did not come with microsoft office (just mesely microsoft works). A friend of mine is a computer tech and has a special license for ms office that allows him to install on a whack load of different computers (yes, it is ligit. There's a product code and everything), so he installed it on my computer for me. I have now received the windows 7 upgrade package and am worried that upgrading from vista to 7 will delete microsoft office from my computer as it is not a 'factory program' (i had to add the program, my computer did not come with it on it). Does anyone know if upgrading will delete my newely installed ms office? I do not have access to the program cd, so if it were to delete, i would not be able to reinstall.

Also, i'd like to add it is not an illegal version of word, the friend of mine who installed it for me is a computer technician. And also, i believe it is the newest version of office available right now.

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.

Updates Wont Install

I keep getting an error code of 646, even though i shut off both my spysweeper firewall and my windows firewall. Not only that, but before when i could install the updates, my computer would freeze. Is this normal, and is there a solution? I asked other groups, and different people said different things. Some people claimed it was my registry that was causing the problems, and others said that i shouldn't "clean" my registry at all - that it would cause bigger problems. I used two registry cleaners - regcure and ccleaner. They helped with the freezing issues, but not with the 646 error.

I have 87. 9 gb of free space on my toshiba satellite l305-s5955. I have microsoft office, with word 2007. The "important" updates i need to install are as follows:

Security update for microsoft office excel 2007 (kb978382)
Security update for microsoft office visio viewer 2007 (kb973709)
Security update for microsoft office word 2007 (kb969604)
Security update for microsoft powerpoint 2007 (kb957789)
Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb969559)
Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb969613)
Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb972581)
Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb974234)
Security update for the 2007 microsoft office system (kb978830)
Update for microsoft office infopath 2007 (kb976416)
Update for microsoft word 2007 (kb974561)

I put this question in windows vista section, but the system here put my question in the windows 7 section. The os i'm running is windows vista.

Install Updates Code 646

I have been trying to install two updates for over a week now and so far no luck. The updates are kb978380 for office 2007 and kb978382 for excel 2007. Everytime i try to download them it creates a restore point and then acts as it should but then i get a error code 646 and i am told that it was not able to install the updates. Today i found a optional update listed and tried to install all three but it would only install the optional and code 646 for the other two. I am not any kind of an expert but will try to follow instructions because this needs to be fixed.

Same Updates Repeatedly Attempt To Install

So, my sound keeps cutting out. Every time it does i know microsoft has decided to install the same update. I go to the start menu and, of course, there the little exclamation point on the shield. I'll click it and it will log me out, begin shut down and installation. Its always an 8 part install. And i'm almost certain its the same "update" being "installed" over, and over, and over; although, it is windows, i could be wrong. Stranger things have happened.

How can i prevent this, or at least get a more useful update that i don't have to install several times/day and that will stop cutting off my sound. It's quite frustrating.

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?

Cannot Install Updates And Adobe Flash Player

My problem is quite simple but the answer is not! I cannot download any windows updates. I get no error message. I press download and it just sits there saying " installing updates " and it goes on for hours. All night last night it was installing. I have followed almost every thread in this section and tried everything  that has been recommended but nothing has worked. And they want us to install windows 7. I just want vista working  properly.

Can i format from my recovery drive "d"? I am running vista home premium on a compaq presario laptop. I also have two network adapters with yellow. Next to them in device manager. I tried uninstalling them but they reinstall themselves.

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?

Running vista home premium, sp2, 64bit, w/norton internet security 2010

Had a similar problem on 5/12/10 with another ms office security update, kb976321. In that case, finally went to ms download site and installed the update manually. Would rather not go through that again.

Error Code 80070643 Can't Install Office Updates

I'm running win7 pro with office 2010 - brand new toshiba, so no old stuff to get in the way. I've tried everything to get the power point update kb982158 to load but keep getting error code 80070643. Well, hopefully i haven't tried everything!

What doesn't work is: trying to manually install; unloading and reloading ppt and trying to update; tried the "fix-it" kb suggested for a similar problem (different error message 0x80070646); tried checking the registry keys according http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/vistawu/thread/18449f60-c149-4eaf-b8e6-a2880cd7232b

The first two keys are as they are supposed to be, but under local_machine etc. There is no appdata, there is a commonappdata whose value is %programdata%

Should i change the value to %userprofile%appdataroaming ?

Or am i way off base, is there another solution?

Error Found Code 646 Install Microsoft Office Updates

I am running windows vista (32 bit) premium home edition service pack 2 on a dell inspiron 530s pc.
The specific updates that i have been experiencing the problem are:

 Security update for microsoft office 2003 (kb975051)
 
 Security update for microsoft office excel 2003 (kb973475)
 Security update for microsoft office word 2003 (kb973443)

 Update for microsoft office 2003 (kb978551)
 
 Update for microsoft office outlook 2003 junk email filter (kb977840)

I have not had my computer in "safe mode" during installs. I have tried temporarily disabling my firewall, then i tried with all protection temporarily off. I really do not understand the reasoning for me to need the updates for microsoft office 2003 and related features. I do not have it installed in my computer, nor do i use any outlook products. I assume it may be to cover items that one may receive via email perhaps as an attachment.
