Windows 7: Cannot install update kb2888049

Cannot install update kb2888049

Hello:

I have reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and all my applications. All is working well. I have made over a hundred Windows updates. All installed fine, but this one refuses to install:

KB2888049 (first Recommended, now Important). Update is available that improves the network performance of Internet Explorer 11 in Windows)

I have IE 11.0.9600.17591. I get error code 8024200D. I have downloaded and installed the System Update Readiness tool. Did not help. I hid the update, but it came back.

Is it really important, and how would I go about to get it installed (nothing I have read has helped)?

Thank you!

Hans L

Damn, the update still wants to install via Update. I have to check that it installed okay before (it certainly looked like it).

Yep, in Installed Updates > Microsoft Windows (196) > Update for Microsoft Windows (KB2888049).

So, I know there have been discussions about what to do when an installed update wants to install anyway, but I have not read it. Do you know what I should do?

Lo and behold, I turned off the computer and the on, and looked for updates, and no updates. So, it fixed itself. All is well.
Thank again, Noel.

Well yes and no, it fixed itself.
Many thing have to finish their intended job by using a restart (reboot).
After doing Windows 7 Updates I always reboot whether Windows 7 requests it or not.
Then check again for more Windows 7 Updates. Can't hurt and might help.

I do too.

This time, I did restart after I installed the update, but the puter still showed that there was an update (the same!). So, I turned off the computer and on again, and now, all is well.

When I justed checked for updates manually, it took 50 seconds (and that is shorter than uaual; some times, it takes minutes). Is that normal? I cannot remember that it used to take that long.

It all depends on many things.
How fast your internet is at that time.
How busy the Microsoft server is at that time.
Times well very a little.

Another little secret.
When you reboot after a Windows Update don't do anything on the computer until the hard drive activity light stops going crazy. When it settles down do as you please with your computer.

Layback Bear, thanks. I will keep an eye on the 'blinker'. However, Windows normally tells me that it is doing something about the new update both when I turn the computer off (which is that I usually do) and when Windows is starting up again. I thought that when the computer was up and running after that, the update was really finished. But, I will look at the light.

Regards,

.NET updates particularly can do a lot of maintenance/optimisation after the reboot - it can be as much as 30 minutes before the system calms down.
