Windows updates repeatedly install successfully and are offerred again RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    There updates show as installing successfully but then return as ready to install:

    security update for windows vista KB2621440
    security update for windows vista KB2665364
    security update for windows vista KB2676562
    update for windows mail junk filter [march 2012] KB905866
    update for windows vista KB2679255

    windows internet explorer 9 for windows vista. It  fails to install with error code 9C48.(this is odd because I have ie9 on the machine in question)

    I have ran the fix it tools for common update issues and no change for these updates. While these show up in the update history as successful they do not show up in my ist of installed updates on my pc. I have tried installing them manually as well with no change for the 6 in question.

    Also, other updates show up after these 6 and they install successfully and do not show back up as ready to install.

    Thanks for any input.

  • Try downloading and manually installing each update.
    Then reset the Windows Update components (read the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 971058) and try running Windows Update again.

    Bye.

  • Thank you for the reply.

    I have tried manually installing the udpates and i have tried resetting windows update components and running windows update again with no luck.

    recent updates do not have this issue just the 6 mentioned.

    thanks again for the reply.

  • Download and run Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7558): it can help you to analyze the status of the installed updates in your system.

  • Luigi,

    I downloaded and installed the baseline security analyzer.

    Should I go with the default settings?

  • ok, I ran the analyzer and it shows the three securityupdates I listed as missing and it also shows ie9 as missing but I am running it on that pc. So I tried to install it anyway but it says it did not install because a more current version is on my pc.

    Should i uninstall ie9 and then reinstall?

  • Actually for some reason I do not see ie9 in the list of installed updates????

    Still looking

  • I tried uninstalling IE9 with the fix it tool and the fix it myself options via the CMD and neither one worked.

    I ran the baseline security analyzer and it showed the security updates and IE9 update as missing from my pc. I am using IE9 though.

    I tried manually installing the updates and all though it was successful they do not show up in view installed updates.

    More recent updater show up and install correctly and do not show back up as ready to install as the ones I have mention do.

    When I try to insall the IE9 update I got the error code 9c48 or a message that says it failed because a newer version of IE9 is already on my pc.

    Still searching......

  • While trying to run sfc scan I noticed that i can open the command prompt by entering cmd in the run box but I cannot locate the cmd icon to right click in order to run as admin.

    It is missing from accessories and it is missing from the system32 folder.

    Any thoughts?

  • Hello,

    It has been quite awhile since I have gotten a reply. Is there somewhere else I can go for help on this?

    Also, I just noticed that this is the windows xp forum, not sure why I ended up here when I was following links for vista. Should I start over in the vista forum?

    Thank you for any assistance you have time to give.

  • Guowen Su,

    Hi. I am so very impressed with your list of credentials!

    I am having an issue with my "older Compaq." 

    I run Window's XP and I need to install/download Microsoft Office Professional Plus.

    One of the system requirements is that I have SP3 installed. I don't. Everytime I install SP3 i am not able to reboot my computer without getting a black screen/ cursor and it says, masterboot record ans it takes me to the start up screen with the option to start up in safe mode in network or just safe mode etc. I am never able to get past the screen and always end up having to go into safe mode in network and un-installing SP3 again. 

    It is a requirement from the University I attend to have Microsoft Office plus it makes life a lot easier as far as documenting etc.

     I am a student in my Master's IT Program/ Project Management. I have brought this to my instructors/professors attention to no avale.

    Can you help please?
