Windows 7: Problem installing KB2536276

Gees. That's a bit brutal. Before I do that let me make sure I know what to expect. I'm trying to go back to a restore point about 5 days before I ran into the problem. I ran into the problem when I tried installing a bunch (12) fixes, but I have no idea when the problem actually occurred or what caused it (but I suspect the hangup that happened when I was first downloading the fixes).

If the restore is successful should I try installing just KB2536276 rather than all the fixes? And if the install fails should I try an even earlier restore point?

I support what Teerex says.
FYI - Zone Alarm is often implicated in BSOD problems.

*IF you decide to try Sys Restore again clean out App data / local / temp.
Start - Run - type in %temp% - ok - organize - select all - organize - delete { note you may be asked to skip some - that is ok}

{*Let us know how you go please with Sys Restore. If / when this is done , & successful, you can think about the method of updating... again.}

If it were me I would be seeking Microsoft's Tech help as I suggested earlier.{ post 6}


*Re your update settings -
I suggest you change them to notify you but let you choose when to download them.
May be good practise to do a few at a time only rather than "oodles" at once.

*In the future I suggest that you always make sure you have a current system restore point prior to downloading anything.

A reminder -
Sometimes in order to get updates to install properly, you may need to do them manually.

Visit Microsoft's Download Center:
Microsoft Download Center: Search Results
Search for each update code. {starts with the letters "KB" and followed by a set of numbers.}
Click the link for the download.
Click Download and Run.
You'll need to accept the agreement and then click Continue.
Repeat this process for each download that Windows Updates was unable to install.
Run Microsoft update again, click Check for updates. Hopefully it will show that you are completely patched.

I manually installed the fix and it went on fine, and this didn't seem to upset Windows Update; it works. That means I no longer have a need for a System Restore, but I may try it again soon just to get familiar with it.

Regarding the restore points, I usually (well, sometimes) remember to create one before installing products, etc. Windows Update creates one before installing (or maybe it's before installing) fixes. I don't need to do one manually do I?

Regarding automatically checking for updates, I really don't like anything deciding on its own when to use the network connection. I know I don't have any choice for a lot of products (like Adobe products) but I still want to control all I can.

Regarding ZoneAlarm, I've heard the BSOD accusation a number of times but have never seen anything specific. Do you know where I can find specific info?

Whew! I already have NetBios over TCP disabled.

I have searched for ZoneAlarm and BSOD but could never find anything specific to my version of ZA and Windows, and never could tell what other hits might apply.

Thanks for your help. I'll mark this thread "solved".
