At some point you'll need to manually install this one too

Here's the download for 32 bit below

I'd say at some point you'd need to install it is when you get to your first failed update.

Yep, what that KB3020369, shall load by itself, despite being down in the list?

Thanks!

Doing in 25 bunches, should it remain checked?

You can try it either way.
If 3020369 is in the first 25 just load it with the first 25
If any fail to install install 3020369 first before the other 24.

Doesn't make sense to my tired mind...if it fails than install before other 24....why take a risk...should install it first...and than 25 batches??

Thanks.

Yep I've said it many times
Not sure how to say it again besides
Install 3020369 by it's self.

It makes no difference in which order = first or after the first 25.

Hi,

Should I give it another try in your expert option.

Clean install and updating 7 times, has already stressed me with none positive results....

Hoping to hear from you.

Best regards!

Hi there,

Hope you are good?

Edited plan:


Before you start download KB3083710 and KB3102810 in advance, and store them on a flash drive
Start and complete the install without an internet connection
Immediately after install is complete
Manually install KB3083710 and restart.
Manually install KB3102810 and restart.
Change your windows update settings I used Check for updates but let me decide when to download and install
Unchecked Give me recommended updates the same....

Restore the WIRED Internet connection and Activate windows
Then launch Windows Update search it shouldn't take very long 5-10 minutes for me

Install KB3020369.

Than install in batches of 25 starting from bottom going all the way up.

No need to hide ie11.


How does this look vs earlier one?

Care to edit?

Thanks again for all your expert assistance.

Best regards!



PS: Should I keep system restore on, in case get errors to revert vs performing a clean install, personally I feel system restore isn't as clean as a new install?

Do errors if any after a install of updates affects the W7 OS in the long run performance, stability wise?

Do I need to install this Windows6.1-KB971033-x86, if yes at what stage.....when I get an error......if yes than why not install before(prohylactcially before the disease surfaces) a thought?

Restore the WIRED Internet connection and Activate windows
Then launch Windows Update search it shouldn't take very long 5-10 minutes for me
Only install Important updates first
Right click on the ie11 Important update and select Hide.
Click on Okay or save on the bottom.

Windows might search again = let it once it's done it might list ie9 or 10 and either might be checked

Scroll the list for this update KB3020369 and just Uncheck it from installing with the rest of the Important updates don't Hide it.
Install all remaining Important updates.
