Windows 7: New updates to Win 7 every day - really?

29 Apr 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I'm experiencing a similar problem as the OP, it's seems to install two important updates, and then after that it asks to install 6 updates I have a screenshot to show the problem.

Hello criticalpoint and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is this a new PC or new install of Windows?

The only duplicates I see in your screen print are for two updates that failed on 04/27.
Those two installed successfully on 04/29.

Windows 7

I know this is an old thread, but I am having the exact same issue. I have an HP Mini 210-2145DX. For the past few months, I have had to install Windows Updates every single day, sometimes several times a day. If I do not install the updates, the computer slows way down until I do. I have had to reboot my system three times this morning alone. I have tried changing settings so that updates are done only at one time each week, but it makes no difference. Any ideas on how to stop this?

I too am having this problem. Every night this week (at least 5 nights in a row) before shutting down, windows says its updating 1 of 1 files. I've just checked the update history and the only recent update was yesterday, otherwise it isn't showing any other updates within the week. I've run my antivirus but windows continues to want to update as I'm shutting down. Even now the start button shows the exclamation mark indicating an update is waiting. Normally I wouldn't even have noticed this but its monsoon and once the thunder and lightening hits I need to shut down quick. Waiting for one update every time is kind of frustrating. I've lost too many computers to monsoon

just an update, maybe this will help others. I solved this problem by manually installing the update that I assumed was trying daily to install. Oddly, it did not appear as a failed update any of the days prior, only as a successful update the day before my last post. Just on a whim I did a manual update and now I have no issues with daily updates and I can shut down without delay once the thunder hits ..

Following on from SeaRose's experience for anyone else still affected, I'd certainly recommend switching from automatic updates to being notified of updates but not installing them. Then you can identify what you're being prompted to install and see whether it's the same update(s) each day. If it's one you need, install it manually, otherwise hide it. Either way you can then see what happens the next day. In any event, it's always preferable to be in control of the updating process. In addition to asking around here, there are other sites that give advice on each month's updates such as Windows Secrets and ********.

If any problems persist, try posting more details here as to the exact updates that are causing the trouble, i.e. the KB numbers. Hopefully, however, manual installation will resolve the issue.

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
