Windows 7: Patch Tuesday

15 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
 
 
Patch Tuesday

OK I downloaded and installed all 21 patches (took an age) but I still get the occasional "Windows Explorer has stopped working" message.
I've run SFC /scannow several times and all seems well.
Any ideas?

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

When you download do a few at at time. If you want to do a few together, make it the smaller ones. At most do 3 or 4.

Huh, when I set up a new machine I might do 40+ updates all at the same time. When I updated my Windows 7 home computer yesterday, there were 15 updates and I did them all at the same time.

99% of the time, no problem; but because of that one time, I prefer the way that I mentioned.

Thanks Zigzag, there are three recurring issues, the majority being "Application Error - Event ID 1000 - Task Category (100)".

The others are "Customer Experience Improvement Program - 1008 - none" and Restart Manager - 10006 - none".

Thanks for your interest.

You have far to much time on your hands, I've never seen any problems downloading and installing 100's at once.

I agree. I have never run into problems yet, although there is actually a failure code that two updates cannot be installed together. At that point, Windows Update cuts, and installs what it already has pending, and then restarts, and has another go until it reaches that error code again, but no trouble comes of it...it just takes a couple of restarts, and soemtimes many updates "fail", but no trouble comes of it in the longer run...although a very few have experienced problems with more than one - although I wouldn't be surprised if there were already issues with CBS on that computer, and doing them separately would have found the update causing the most problems, and then that critical serurity bulletin would have been hidden rather than being brought to the attension of someone who could fix it!

I have to agree most of the time it is fine to install many updates at once but when you have multiple it's better to place safe and install a few at a time.
