Windows 7: Question on troubleshoot: Fix Problems With Windows Update

25 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 7 64bit

Sorry for the delay in trying things. That job thing kept me busy. The delay did result in a new Win7 update being detected when I booted. So I installed it. Everything went smooth. So as things are, updates seem to behave. I still don't like that SP1 shows up as failed, canceled and never success. It does show up under installed updates

I tried the windows update troubleshooter I referred to earlier just to see what it says now. This time, I get the output below. I'm not told there is a problem anymore, but I'm told that what is there can't be fixed. I think the later is due to my having checked 'automatically fix'.

Since I can always try aggressive mode, I wanted to wait and provide this info first.
