I have been experiencing a problem with what appears to be a MS update. I think it sarted about a week or so ago. (Actually, it appears to be 4 updates in one.) I use Windows 7 Home edition, on a 64 bit laptop. When I try to shut down, my computer tries to install the same 4 updates, then when I go to start up, they can't be updated, and that MS reverts them. Now, it is taking forever for my computer to start up, once it figures out that it cannot accept the update. Is any one else experiencing this? Have anyanswers?

Please be aware that, as a policy, we do not offer this kind of support. Instead, we would refer you to Microsoft.

So any aid given is just given because I (pretend to) try to be nice.

Refer to this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906602

Post back with as much info as you can, particularly KB numbers.

Hopefully we can get you sorted out. ;)

PSI-Secunia now tells me I am secure with all updates. However, when I check my computer (for any new MS Updates) , I am still being told that there is a MS update waiting for download. "Windows 7 Service Pack 1 for x64-based Systems (KB 976932)...73.6MB - 892.6MB. I have checked my computer and have 244GB available, more (including) my external hard drive.

Hi, sorry to hear your having problems with your MS Updates. This often use to happen to me.
At times, this can be a tedious task. You can be most successful by researching the error code. Most often, you will find that there can be a number of solutions to fix the problem. So, at times it can be time consuming before you discover the problem. Often, it is a simple matter of cleaning out a specific file, or changing the ending name of a file, and sometimes, you must make certain Updates first.

From what you wrote concerning your problem, I suggest this for you. Download "Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 (First)" Very Important Update. Only Download this Update by itself, this will take anywhere from a half an hour or longer, depends on your OS System Specs. Be patient, first it will "Download" and then it will "Install" the Updates. When the update is complete, you must "(Restart) your Laptop" (Select, the "Restart Button" from the Update Wizard. This will "Reboot" your System, and make the configuration changes necessary for your system to work properly. Again, be Patient while system "Reboots". You can also find the "Restart Option Button" from clicking on the (Start Button) on your PC's Taskbar, this option is located on the "Shutdown Button options list (located) on the downward arrow on the right of the shutdown button. After you have Installed and Rebooted "Service Pack 1", You should not have any problems Installing Important or Recommended Updates for your Laptop, from MS. David R. "IT Student" Majoring in IT. Good Luck. Hope, this solves your problem.

I just tried to do the download again. I received a message saying it downloaded, but when the computer went to upload, I received a message error code #800B0100. What's going on?

Have you installed all the updates offered by Microsoft except for SP1?

See this:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=947821

This update was offered by Windows Update some time ago. Unless installed you could be having problems.

Just in case, the "check SUR" KB 947821 recommended by Maurice results in a 300 MB download. Folks have lots of problems with windows 7 SP1, just enter your error number in a Google (or similar) web search and visit the answers.microsoft.com (or technet) hits. What you can do anyway is to run `sfc /scannow` in a CMD-line window (in the windows system tools below accessories) with admin rights (right click).

I usually look for the updates manually. Go to your Updates, and then click the text that says [number] updates available.

There you will be able to find a code that start with KB and number after. Search that code on the microsoft update website and download the updates manually. Then install them

After a new restart all should be okay!
