Windows 7: Failing to update?

Yeah, the .NET updates I do separately and if there's any question, I'll do them one at a time.

One of the first things I do is install IE11, that removes a bunch of updates for earlier versions, I see you have one for IE8 sitting there.

If that top list is what you have left just do a few at a time, that .NET by itself and see how it goes.

Ok, thanks just to make it clear before I clean install again........

1. .NET updates separately and one at a time?

2. I didn't get an option for IE11, do you install it before .NET updates or after and from online?

3. Install IE11 than .NET updates one at a time and lastly the rest?

Best regards!

I just get IE11 from Microsoft download page, then a restart and the .NET usually one at a time if there has been problems, but I'll try blasting through all of them first just to see.

Screen snip 3 in post 119 shows IE 11 installed successfully.
Did you reboot after getting IE 11 installed ?

You can run IE and check the version.

Apologize, didn't get it, Screen snip 3 in post 119??

No I didn't reboot as all 130 of 162 got installed... How could I have..is it possible...??

Thanks for the suggestion of updating to IE11.

I think as suggested by Derek,

1. Directly install IE11 from MS download.

2. Check for updates.

3. Install .NET updates one by one.

4. Than the rest.

5. Install MS Office
and than its updates.

I feel you would agree, though would be trouble some but might not get the 3 errors...

What about KB 3020369 when should it be installed after IE11, .NET updates??

Thanks.

I always reboot after installing any updates, even if it is not "required".

Thanks for showing it, cause was having difficulty on my cell.

You mean to imply reboot 162 times after each?

No, i mean reboot after Windows Update is finished with it's "current update processing".

If 130 installed successfully and 32 failed, reboot after the 130 installed ok,
then (after reboot) rerun Windows Update to see what is offered, and try to install these updates.

Repeat this update/reboot until you are current with Windows Update.

That's what I do........I rebooted after 130 got installed of 161, and on rerun of check updates, displayed 23 as displayed in screen shot......that's what I do till it show none available.

Than install MS Office and repeat the same.

Only issue was the 3 errors to which Derek clarified.

1. Install IE11 manually 1st.

2. Than.NET updates one by one.

3. Than all the rest W7 important updates till shows its current......

4. You didn't reflect about KB 3020369?

5. Lastly install office and its important updates to current.

6. Than comes 3rd party apps.......

What do you think?

Thanks!
