Combofix was not found on my computer. I have 6 windows updates and all 6 "failed" to download and install. I don't know why. My default browser is Firefox, I had to use Win Explorer to see the updates and did not make it my default, would that cause the problem? File hippo is showing updates for programs that I don't want the newer versions of like winamp. I actually would prefer a year older version of it. Do I need to suck it up and just get the new versions anyway? Sometimes the new versions have just to much junk and I end up hating it.

Could you post a shot of the failed updates please - were they related to dotnet updates ?

There is no requirement to update your programmes but the offer is there if you wish to take it up

Does the black only happen on this site ? As it looks like a slow load for a portion of the page

Do you get an error code as a reason for the failed update ?

Are you happy to create that batch file ? If so then run it - if it fails I have another trick up my sleeve

I'd rather go with what you suggest. Besides I can't seem to find that same page on the error code. MS is just a bit sketchy. It might just be me but they always seem to complicate anything they can. So if you have a solution, I trust you much more.

OK we will go for the easy option first

Download the MSFixit from this page to your desktop

Double click the tool to run it - does that work ?

If not we will use option 2 :)

OK next before we go diving into the registry - a nifty tool I have used before

Download Windows Repair (all in one) from this site
If you use smartfilter in IE be prepared for a warning - but the programme is OK I have it on my system

Install the programme then run

Go to step 2 and allow it to run Disc check if you wish, this part can be skipped

Once that is done then go to step 3 and allow it to run SFC

On the start repairs tab select advanced mode and click start

Select the items ticked (remove the ticks from the rest ) and tick restart system when finished

Problem, when running SFC it asked for Window XP disc, but I don't have a disc. Neither one of us do. Do I need to get one before I continue. Also, do you mean select the items you have ticked and deselect any it has that you don't? Sorry for all the trouble.

No problem - OK just skip the files it asks for

Yes for the ticks ensure that the ones I have selected are ticked for you - in reality if any extras are ticked it will not cause a problem

Ok, I ran windows repair (this time no problems and it didn't ask for a disc), restarted system and tried window updates, all 6 failed again. What should I do now?

Downloaded and installed, restart and went to windows updates. All 6 failed again. Then I may have done a bad thing. I got frustrated, so I manually downloaded and installed all 6. Then I realized that doesn't fix the problem. Sorry, sometimes I think I'm so smart that I forget how stupid I can be. I can uninstall any or all of them and we can continue. If you are fed up I understand.

No problem I can understand frustration :lol:

So the manual install failed ?

Lets now try the windows suggestion - after that we will need to dig in the registry

Copy this text into a notepad file

net stop wuauserv
cd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution
ren Download Download.old
net start wuauserv


From the file menu select Save as..
In the drop down at the bottom select all files (*.*)
Call the file fix.bat
Save to the desktop
Go to the desktop and double click fix.bat
The small programme will run
On completion try the updates again
