Windows 7: Windows 7 wierd Micosoft update valid

03 Aug 2013   #11

Windows7 32bit

Ok, I was trying to track down whether the problem came from the laptop to the desktop or vice versa. Apparently, from looking at all the logs Skype... acquired from MS... was making an automatic update at the time and was attempting to syncronize software apps between both computers. I no longer use Skype for security reasons and that may explain the reason it was making updates to the audio. But then again I don't have updates with Skype set to auto either.

But I think that is where the problem lies and since installer couldn't log back into windows after reboot on the laptop and couln't syncronize the contacts lists etc betwen both computers.. everything just got messed up and the installed failed. The logs stated an audit policy was changed and a special logon occurred at the time. But then the log error said it was from a windows automatic update?

Does this make sense?

Windows7 32bit

I was on my laptop for a bit this morning and then I went into my office and was working on my desktop when the problem began with script issue in my browser and Firefox froze. I then noticed TrustedInstaller, SearchIndexer and searchProtocolHost starting to crank away on the desktop and I could hear files being written to the hard drive.

I then started troubleshooting what happened on the desktop when I wrote my first post because I couldn't figure out update could get past all the security checkpoints. I then went back into the other room and realized that my laptop had attempted to reboot while I was in the other room. Then I realize that the problem I had experienced on my desktop had migrated to my laptop which gets it stream from my wireless router.

So all of the diagnostics have been for the desktop trying to solve what went wrong on it. I decided not to mess with the laptop as I can re-image the laptop drive since the system partition is small. But I was thinking how can both computers get messed up at the same time is the thought occur to me to start at the logs on my laptop. In my laptop logs, there was an WindowUpdateClient error on an auto update for Skype that was posted as a windows update. So you can ignore everything that I was saying about the laptop as I was typing out loud to myself.

So the troubleshooting has always been for the desktop computer. If this makes any sense to you.

The bottom line is that I believe that an auto update from Skype tried to auto update both computers at the same time and failed when it tried to synconize.

So I was asking if this makes sense to you and if it does then this explains it and solves the problem. As I couldn't understand how MS could suddenly do an auto update with control panel settings in windows update set to notify only.

Windows doesn't much care what you set Update to do. If you set it to download automatically but ask you to install, it'll still auto-install when you restart the PC regardless of your choice. I recently set up a Dell PC with Windows XP, set updates to notify only, and it still auto-installed several updates without asking or even notifying me it'd done so. There are also minor updates that run without notice such as MSE definition updates, though occasionally you will get something updated stealthily.

Though in your case I suspect something odd happened beyond the usual Microsoft updates.
