Please read the following Secuina thread:
http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/122... Then read below for a very interesting update:
I ended up taking my Hewlett Packard laptop to Geek Squad because I did not want to mess things up. Come to find out...the hard drive failed mechanically and this was not even a 7 month old computer. Then to top things off...HP stopped making this particular model/brand and we could not obtain a new hard drive even though it was under a full warranty... AND IT IS NOT EVEN 7 MONTHS OLD!!!! ARRRRRG!
So I get a full store credit for the computer and decide to buy a Toshiba laptop. Things are going fine..I have a 100% Secunia score and life is good. Then the update monster came back. I was havng trouble with the following:
a. Win7 updates (KB2656351) keeps wanting to install; installed already.
b. Win7 updates (KB2600217) keeps wanting to install; installed already.
c. Recommended Win7 update (KB2468871) keeps failing to install.
d. Recommended Win7 update (KB2533523) keeps failing to install.
e. Error code 80070005 was presenting on the failed Windows updates.
Now I have a score of 93%.
I noticed a pattern... KBKB2468871 & KB2533523 were the same culprits from the last time. I was thinking failed hard drive again or Microsoft had screwed up on their updates in getting them out.
This time it took a week to get my laptop back. They found 26 viruses, but these were not the problem. Thankfully there were no hardware issues or hard drives failing. The problem was this...Norton's 360.
The program was for some reason blocking the updates. I had already tried to troubleshoot the problem myself and thought that all the permissions were granted already; noting error code 80070005. Apparently there were some tweaks that needed to be done in the hidden files area of Norton 360 and after they cleaned up all of the duplicate Microsoft.net framework issues...it is finally working like a charm.
I again now have a 100% Secunia score....yaaaaayyyyyy!
So there you have it. hope someone can benefit from my headaches...lol
