Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

It did happen to me in all my three computers. On the second try the failed update installed.

And strangely, on my primary desktop with Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit, when I booted yesterday night, I received a dialog box saying " Your copy of Windows is not genuine " Duh.............

How can a genuine retail copy distributed by a MS distributor and purchased from a reputed retailer with a certificate of authenticity and resident in the PC since Dec 2009 suddenly become non-genuine!!!!!! In fact during the promotional offer, I got a "genuine" Reebok watch shipped by Microsoft India. ( that watch, none-the-less, was not even worth the cost of my morning breakfast )

The only change in the PC is the abovesaid latest updates. The last software I installed was the latest version of Speccy.

I presume the cloud will pass as mysteriously as it appeared. Keeping my fingers crossed though. Oh, my computer ! Oh, Microsoft ! ( and if these fail Oh, God! ) Take mercy on the poor souls who reposed faith on you !

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Ususualy if there are incompatible updates they are makerd as such somehow and windows update then is smart enough to install one set before continuing with another. I'm guessing that that last update was not properly labeled as needing to be installed seperately like usual.

Windows 10 Pro

I had the same issue. I think the problem/issue was that one of the updates had to be installed fisrt before the one that failed to install could install.... if that makes sense

Anyways, once the other updates were installed the failed one installed without incidence. I've seen this before so it was no big deal.

Phone Man

Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center 64bit, Windows 7 HP 64bit

Same thing on both PC's.
When I installed Win 7 on the wife's laptop a few months ago it gave me 48 updates. Since this was a new install I just let it fly and all 48 installed in one shot. I was expecting a big crash but all installed OK. So you just never know what you get.

The Howling Wolves

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Test driving a (New) refurbished laptop from Sam's Club.
Looked at updates and had 52 updates to install so I said what the heck and let it install all of them at one time. Not one gliche in installation.
I have 29 days left to check this lappy out so I am running all the tests I can to make sure it is worth the buy!

BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?
Greetings! I have Acer Aspire 5750G. My current BIOS version is 1.07. The latest version is 1.12. There are a few versions in between. Should I do incremental updates and reach 1.12 or should I just go direct to 1.12? Many Thanks!
Latest updates (4/12) and SP1
Anyone know if the updates released on Tuesday require SP1 to be installed beforehand as a prerequisite? Similarly, if these latest updates are installed now (without SP1) will it cause problems if SP1 is installed later? I have all the updates prior to SP1, so I don't feel like SP1 will really...
