Windows 7: W7 Updates May 2011

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

Perhaps an AV or Firewall settings badly managed with Windows Update...Could try to disable one or the other the time to update?

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1- x64

The problem is that KB2529073 breaks the current Logitech Setpoint drivers.

When I installed that particular update my keyboard quit functioning. Unplugging it and plugging it back had no effect. Re-installation of the Logitech software also had no effect (latest version). A reboot didn't work either.

The only fix was to remove KB2529073

Just for comparisions I have a Logitech wireless Wave keyboard, and a Logitech Performance MX mouse using the latest setpoint drivers and have suffered no issues with KB2529073 installed.

Not saying you don't have the issue, just posting my results.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1- x64

ah, very good. I love to see other people chime in. I wanted to post my findings in case others run into the same issue.

The keyboard I have is the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard. The illumination works during this process and it appears in the device manager, but text input just doesn't work.

I also have an old Mx500 which continues to work.

Maybe I can fire off an email to Logitech to see if they are seeing instances of this.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I too had problems with the latest wave of updates. Got a couple of "configuring windows updates 0%" hangs...or at least 5 minutes of sitting there. Finally walked away and it was at logon prompt. Took about 3-4 reboots, updated some USB stuff, my keyboard and mouse quit working on final reboot for about 15 seconds, lights when out on keyboard and then lights came back on and mouse was working and so was keyboard. I use a Logitech G9 laser and mines working fine after these updates.

I got this as well but is was at 35%. I nearly restarted the computer when the update finished. Didn't have KB or mouse issues though.

I agree with sygnus21. If is important update do it. I had no problems with updates today. Just because there is something on your computer that is stopping it to work properly doesn't mean you don't need it. You all did well and got it figured out I think. The keyboard doesn't play well with this update. Some how you still need the update. I have read about a virus that will attach itself to a key on your keyboard, when you hit the key presto you got it. I use to use Logitech and I had a heck of a time with it. Some of them just don't get along with Microsoft but not all of them. It's not a right or wrong thing it's just a thing and it's been going on for a long time. I got updates for two machines today, one blue tooth M.S. and the other wireless M.S. and had no problems. A little trick I do when rebooting after install something is wait until the little light quiets blinking. If the boot has got all the way to the desktop and cursor but the light is still blinking I don't anything until it quiets. I would never hide a important update. I would do as the OP did, come here and ask for help. Microsoft does not issue security updates just for the hell of it.

My point is I don't think "Important" updates or Service Packs should be hidden or not installed - that is they should/need to be installed.

The other point I'm making is that those updates wouldn't appear if they weren't Important/Recommended.

So, if you don't want to install SP1, and the updates for it, and don't want to be nagged, hide them. I don't recommend it, but that's me.

I'm out.

BTW here's a possible solution to your problem, provided you have all the prerequisite updates installed and still can't install updates - Windows Update - Reset
I don't entirely agree with that. Windows 7 detected Avast and WD on my computer yet it still offered me MSE in an update. To me that is just spam. I hid that update and have been none the worse for it.

As recall Windows Live Essentials came pre-loaded on my computer. I have no use for it so I uninstalled all the WLE programs. After I uninstalled it the Windows Update recommended that I install it. I hid that recommendation also.

Well, interesting to hear of all the comments . In my case, after getting frustrated yesterday, the two updates seem to have installed OK. The second part of the installation again hung at 32% but I went for a coffee and 30 minutes later I had 'Windows has recovered from an unexpexcted error...' but all seems to be OK.

Here's hoping

I'm not sure but it could be the case that everybody all over the world trying to up date at the same time could be causing all the servers at Microsoft a little problem. That causes the delays.
