A possible fix for windows 7 update problem

The easy fix for Windows 7 not updating is actually quite simple, the problem is to find out how.
The first thing you do is to go into Microsoft Automatic update and turn it completely off in the update settings. This has to be done first.
Down load the Microsoft Standalone Update for SP1 and install
Then make sure you have the April 2015 Servicing Stack update KB3020369 down load it and install If it is already there it will tell you.
Then download the All In one Microsoft Convenience Roll up KB3125574 for your version of windows 7 and install.
Once this is installed your computer will search for other updates and install them after these are complete turn on your automatic update and you will find everything is working normally. If my instructions are slightly confusing search for “How to Geek Windows 7 all at once update with the Microsoft Connivance Rollup” and the site will give you step by step instructions with links to the update sites.

It really irritates me that Microsoft who is the cause of the problem does not just list the steps in one spot that is easy to find with a simple search which would give them an abundance of good will, however their attitude seems to be make it as hard as possible so you will move on to their new operating system. Windows 10 is excellent however I am not going to put it on a 2gb memory net book that will not handle it and I only use for email when travelling

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Yep that has been around for a while now
https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/...ows-7-and-8-1/

Simplifying updates for Windows 7 and 8.1

Only thing that has changed is a newer update client that is included in the update to also manually install as well after either KB3020369 on a current install is KB3172605.

But yes if clean installing KB3020369 & KB3125574 & KB3172605 will save a lot of time

Hi,
I believe it does have ie11 in it and Net 4.5.2
Net 4.6.1 is another download in another roll up that follows with other updates plus about 60 or so other updates to get up to current date as of September 2016.

Thanks for info mate... I'm going to see if NtLite is able to build these into a WIM then.

Well NtLite wont integrate the roll up, just thought I would mention it before anyone wastes time trying it.

I just noticed that KB3125574 installs the Diagnostics Tracking Service ! it is easy to kill though;
Open an elevated command prompt and type:

sc stop DiagTrack
sc delete DiagTrack

There is also some other update in there that corrupts a system file so again from an elevated command prompt type:

sfc /scannow

For me it successfully fixed the corrupt file... I wonder what other stuff is in this horrible update ? and when they force us to use these roll ups in the near future I dread to think what is going to be hidden in them

Hi,
Yea rollups
They should abide by CEIP Customer Experience Improvement Program preferences

Callenders post on disable CEIP
Whatever happened to that promised Windows 7 convenience rollup?
