Windows 7: W7 Updates May 2011

W7 Updates May 2011

I have today downloaded four updates. Two are no problem but two will not install: these are KB2529073 and KB2534366.

OK, so the installation hangs and after cutting power and reverting to an earlier OS all is well. But when I shut down, the system startrs to install the two bad updates (as above) before shutting down. Then when I switch on again, the installation continues but then hangs and I need to go through the cutting power and restore procedure over again.

How can I stop the installation of downloaded updates on shutdown? And are there known issues with these updates (I have seen a number of comments/warnings on the net about these...)?

Thanks

Alangr

You can turn off automatic updates or configure windows to download updates but let the user choose when to install them. Heres a walkthrough.

Updates may be buggy but they are not buggy for everyone. Try installing the problematic updates one by one.

FYI: I did the update today for win7 and it messed up my outlook 2010, the only fix was to go to control panel
select outlook 2010 and do a repair. All is well now.
I don't understand but this has happened twice but the repair does solve it.
I run office 2003 but installed outlook 2010 separately which normally works fine..

I had three updates that failed.I down loaded each one individually and tried to install them one at a time and each one said it didn't apply to my computer. They were KB2529073, KB2534366 and KB2533552. The last one applies if you haven't installed SP 1 yet. I'm using Windows 7 Pro, SP1 64 bit. These were 32 bit versions, is there a 64 bit version of these KB'?

Win7-64bit has 64 and x86 components
They are updates are for 32bit and 64bit. This one KB2529073 for instance is installed in the x86 part of Win7-64bit.

If they show they don't apply just hide them so they won't continue to annoy you.

Four Only Four Updates This Update Was A Pain

It seems to be working fine however.

1. I did the update around 24:00 GMT yesterday. While the download went okay the install was a bit slow.

2. Also the four updates are broken down into two separate sequential updates. First three and a reboot. Then a fourth one and no reboot required on both x32 and x64.

Not that this is any different compared to any other update with regard to using proper procedure.
Lets not forget about the old sequential update thingy.

One should always use the Windows Update to check for more updates immediately after you apply Windows updates of any kind.

Yeah I had no problem with them through Windows Updates.

That's exactly how mine went. And yeah, you should always immediately check for more updates. I would also add that any important updates be installed as not doing so can cause problems down the road, including update issues as some will be pre-requisite for others.

With that said I would definitely not recommend hiding any important updates for reasons stated above.

My two cents

If manual install says "Does not apply to your system" but the Updater still wants to install and they won't- then hide them.

They just aren't needed!

If they are "Important" updates and show up - DO NOT hide them! They are showing up for a reason!
