I've ran a scan with Belarc Advisor and the only update it could find missing was KB2870699, but nothing regarding KB2834140 which Microsoft Update continuously tries and fails to install. I have manually downloaded the x64 KB2870699 installer but it tells me that its not applicable to my computer and closes?

Is anyone able to help me, or should I close this thread now as unsolvable?

It seems like it is time to do that or a fresh install.

I wouldn't normally mind doing that, but I've already completed no less than 3 fresh installs, and each time ending up back in the same situation

After installing the OS, update the Windows Installer before installing any drivers - even the video drivers.

It has to be something being installed after the OS that is messing things up. To find out what that is, you might have to install the OS a few more times. Test after each driver install.

Is it ok to keep reinstalling windows like that? Are there not any installation limits within a certain period? I'm worried that if i keep reinstalling my copy of windows it'll be considered fraudulent due to the amount of activations?

The computer is more or less running ok except a few odd little glitches like not being able to install update KB2834140 for example. Is KB2834140 an important updated that desperately needs to be installed or can I live without it? My 2nd and last issue with windows update is that it repeatedly informs me that IE10 is available to be updated even though its already installed.

My final issue (I'm not sure if its related to any of the other problems) is that I keep receiving a randomly accruing error about the Nvidia kernel driver crashing and successfully recovering which mainly happens when using Mozilla Firefox.

The bottom line is that I need my computer for my work and after already completing several reinstalls over the last several weeks I now have all my programs and setting reinstalled and working. What i'm asking is...is there a way of fixing these problems without another fresh install of windows because I really afford the down time if there is a 2nd option...

There is no need to activate it until things are working.

When you see the Enter Your Product Key screen, do not enter your product key.

Also, remove the check by "Automatically Activate When Online" and finish the install.

That should give you 30 days before you need to do something.

So the absolutely last option available to me now is to do another fresh install?
