Windows 7: Win7 64 Update failed Error 9C48

Win7 64 Update failed Error 9C48

HI all,

Just registered after seeing a similar thread on here to the issue I have.

I have a laptop with 7 Home premium 64 bit SP1 that is up to date with the exception of an IE9 update that refuses to install at all.

Have tried various different methods but to no avail including attempting to remove IE9 and then try a reinstall.

Uninstall hasn't been possible. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Tom,

As advised I have completed steps 1-8.

When I ran the SURT tool, I was presented with a hotfix update. ( KB947821 )

I clicked install and after a while of inactivity it installed successfully.

After this I had no errors, Windows update also flashed up that updates were available.

I then checked, there were now 2 updates ( image attached )

Both then installed and I rebooted and checked my version of IE, it was updated ! :)

Check wupdates again and I'm up to date! For reference I have also attached the SUR log file you requested.

All I can say is a huge thank you!! If you need any other info posted just let me know.

I've dipped into and out of threads on here for a while, glad I registered now! Thanks again!

Hi Adam,

That's great news, thanks for posting back. Your CheckSUR log is showing that all 11 files from my fix were successfully replaced and as Windows successfully updated, you're good to go!

You're most welcome for the help :)
