Had 17 important, which included security updates for Office 2007 and 2 optional including KB2952664 and the Windows Live Mail 2012 update.

All the security updates installed without issue and I hid both the optional updates.

That update is from August Thrash, have you only just received it?
Can't say I've ever touched the problem steps recorder anyway and the update it's recommending to install is one on my hidden list.

Finally bit the bullet and did a repair install and all is well now.
I strongly recommend that you don't install kernel updates for at least a few days after they are first offered. They are the specific type of update most prone to breaking a computer and it's best to wait until the dust has settled so that if there's a problem it can be withdrawn or replaced before you risk getting that problem.
You are correct... I will definitely wait a day or two + make a full backup before initiating any future Kernel related Updates, lesson learned... although I did have a backup from Jan 8th available to deploy.

When I launched Windows Update, I immediately got an error message (can't remember the code). Internet research led me to find out that BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service) was set to Disabled instead of Manual. Very strange.

I wanted to add several other odd things that have been happening lately with windows update, and NO it is NOT malware or viruses. I can duplicate these on BOTH my PCs with Windows 7 SP1.


I noticed as have MANY others here on this forum that if you did a new install of Windows 7 that
when you went to search for updates the service would hang and do absolutely NOTHING at all, or
take many hours to complete, I personally noticed that one symptom would be that ONLY when attempting to search for updates that M$ servers would BLOCK my connection when downloading an update at 50%> I could duplicate this many times....

Also over the past two weeks I have noticed that unlike usual where upon immediately booting up and checking my windows update page (I would instantly see the updates listed) that were ready for downloading, now I see oddly it will claim No new updates for this computer, with the green shield, even though I know there are over 60 important updates. What happens now is that only after perhaps 3-4 minutes or more, Windows will eventually show me those updates...this is NOT what happened in the past..


MICROSOFT....WHAT IS GOING ON WITH WINDOWS UPDATE?????!!!!!!!

Windows 10 is starting to be like that U2 album that was put on Iphones.

Sure, a lot of people like U2, but even some of their fans were annoyed Apple forced it down their throat.
