Windows 7 Update Fail
Having problems downloading Windows 7 updates? I've banged my head against the wall.

Try This:

Update for Windows (KB3125574)
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=3125574

Use IE to get the update for your OS
http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Install.aspx?q=KB3125574&referringpage=Search.aspx pop it in the basket and checkout!

After obtaining the file do the manual update. Give it time.

If the update fails >>>>reboot<<<<.

After logging in, click on the update very quickly before the "Windows update server" and "trusted installer" have time to kick in.

After that I picked up a couple of years worth of updates, and Windows Update works as normal.


The web helps you collect that which has already been collected.

Someday man should learn how to enjoy liberty without license, nourishment without gluttony, and pleasure without debauchery. Self-control is a better human policy of behavior regulation than is extreme self-denial.

My jokes are so lame I shot my horse.
