All updates are failing on Windows 7 with error 8007045D

I am trying to update these on Dell Windows 7 Home Premium Laptop:
KB2559049 - Cumulative Update for IE 9
KB2567680 - Secutiry Update for Windows 7
KB2570791 - Update for Windows 7
SP1 for Windowws 7

I tried installing them separately. Also, I tried running FixIt in Default mode. Nothing worked.
When I try to install System Readiness Tool it is stuck for ever and Green band does not move at all.

Please help!

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Can you try a system restore to a point before you tried to install these updates?

Try using the system update rediness tool

This can arise because win Vista / 7 use a different update paradigm than XP or earlier - there is a seperate "update layer" that maintains a database of God only knows what. This database can become inconsistant, causing all kinds of (ahem!) interesting things to happen.

The solution is to use the "system update rediness tool" offered by Microsoft

Viz:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...Readiness-Tool

(Try http://tinyurl.com/6ghwfnn if the above link is broken by posting)

There are several flavors, for both Vista and Win-7, 32 & 64 bit so be sure to pick the correct one.

I have experienced this problem myself - especially after doing a "surgical virus removal" where I had to (in essence) slash-and-burn my way thorugh the O/S. Running this tool has all but universally solved these problems.

Note that running this tool can take hours - many hours - depending on how barf'd up the update store is. If it takes a very long time the first run, you may wish to run it several times until it finishes relatively quickly (in about five minutes or less).

Microsoft also recommends running this tool periodically as a "maintanance" activity to ensure the update database remains consistent.

Try it and post results.

What say ye?

Like I said above - before re-reading your post and noticing you tried this - the system update rediness tool can take extreme lengths of time depending on how badly barf'd up the update store is. I have seen it take periods of time measured in days to complete. Complete it will, but it might need to do a lot of work.

Another thing - it is normal for the green bar to appear to "hang".

The best thing to do is to run the tool and let it be.

Go visit your girfriend, spend some time with the wife-and-kids, shoot some snooker, whatch some football / baseball / WWF psudo-wrestling / etc.

What say ye?

I just started to intall the System Readiness Tool. I had started to install several times before but had to cancel it after an hour since the installation bar did not progress.
This time I will let it run hopefully it will finish installing.

Thanks,

I agree w/jharris--not only does the SRT take an appalling amount of time, but the "green bar" will absolutely drive you to distraction if you sit near it! No doubt MS had a notion to "make sure the user knows this thing's a-crankin'" so they not only have the little spinning icon thingie but also the animated, flashing green bar that from the periphery-of-your-vision gives you the impression it's advancing, but it may not be. Drives me nuts.

Anyway, ignore that, leave it alone, and Good Luck with it!

An HOUR? Wow! I have never seen a "first run" take less than that - often several - even on an apparently good system. Though I can understand your reticence, normally things don't take that long and when they do - such as a defrag - there is usually some kind of indication that the thing is not hung.

Hang in there! You're doing the right thing - a 15 round prize-fight (usually) takes a while.

Do let us know what happens.

I know what you mean, though if you're anything like me, it's a short drive.

Thanks for the follow-on support!

@hcurry,

I just wanted to reiterate a statement I made in my first posting:
You may wish to run the tool more than once, as absolutely insane as this may sound at first glance.

This tool does, (or tries to do), a lot of work. Especially on a first-try, when things are barf'd all to Hell and Gone, (as yours seems to be), it may not be able to fix everything.

It's sort-of like a defrag. You really need to run it several times on a badly defrag'd disk to get it really cleaned up.


In your case what is likely to happen is this:
  • It will run and try to fix the things it can, and it will throw up it's hands in dispair over the things it can't fix.
  • On a second try, because many of the original problems are now resolved, many of the things it could not fix before are fixable. However there will be things that still cannot be repaired.
  • A third try will solve many of the problems that the first and second tries could not fix.
  • A fourth try will solve many. . . . . (etc.)
  • And so on.
Eventually, you will reach a point where successive runs take about the same length of time - usually measured in fives or tens of minutes. Once you get to that point, you're done.

However, please realize that you may have to run this tool a multitude of times in succession to get real results. Don't forget to reboot after every couple of runs or so, so that the system can clean out cruft from TEMP and memory.

Go get 'em tiger!

What say ye?

I ran the System Readiness Tool twice I saw the same error count 64 in both the runs in CheckSUR log file. Anyhow, I tried to do Windows Install Update again it failed!
And now I see there are more updates 23 of them I have to install. What else I can do to fix this mess.
Thanks again,
