Windows 7: Reinstalled twice, but Windows still won't update

Windows 8.1 With Update 3
 
 

I have not found any articles where it said that installing KB3020369 with other updates will cause to fail or an error.
If it really causes such problems, it will be automatically unchecked.
In mine case (fresh installation) it is checked along with other important updates.

KB3138612 is the latest client update, it replaces all previous client's update. It includes all patches and fixes that were listed in previous updates (KB3083710 and KB3102810). I don't really think that installing old KBs while we have more recent KB is an important opertation.

I read your #2 post. I am wondering if Win7 is worth that.

Hi Hammer
I like win-7 so if others feel the same I'd say absolutely

Some people might let the system work it's way out overnight or however long it takes = Not I
It's bad enough waiting to download and install
Endless searching is just insult to injury.

Solved.....almost

Hi guys

Thanks for all the technical advice and help. I apologise for the long delay in response, as I planned to replace my Dual-Core PC hard drive, but relented after I found out that it only had 7000hrs of use.

Immediately after reinstalling the OS, I followed ThrashZone's advice to the letter, installing the Update Agents first and then leaving the PC on overnight to search for updates, which it found just after 5am in the morning. I also unchecked KB3020369 and then installed it by itself, as advised to do so, so all went well. Surprisingly, after installing Net Framework 4.5.2, the 4.6.1 version vanished from the list of available updates, and this was a big relief as I had feared it would corrupt my 32bit Dual-Core.

Although I did not need to reinstall the OS on my ASUS netbook, just like the Dual-Core pc, it updated at about 5.30am after I left it on all night. However, it is still showing Net Framework 4.6.1 as an optional available update. Do I really need this Net Framework 4.6.1 update? If not, I can proceed and mark this topic as solved.

Many, many thanks again...

Hi,
No Net 4.6.1 seems to be way to buggy
Net 4.5.2 seems better or at least cause fewer updating issues

Solved on four laptops

I had very same problem on FOUR Windows 7 laptops (3 Dells, 1 Sony Vaio) that had been sitting idle for a period of two to nine months. Endless attempts to update with no success, alarmingly high rate of CPU usage, reinstallation of OS trying to correct problem. I kept reading of all the people having this problem and all of the very complicated fixes they were attempting. I was trying to decide which fixes I should attempt, when I came across the advice to just set the power settings to never turn off and leave the computer updating for days if necessary. Worked like a charm. All four of them updated and installed updates after a day or so.

Huh!

As you have noticed Jujuju2 many of us have been trying to find the magic method to solve this problem.

As you, my method is just waiting and let it complete. Hopefully when this Free W-10 B/S is over, Windows 7 will update properly again.
