Windows 7: Issue when I try and update all updates at once

24 Feb 2014   #1

Windows 7 x64bit
Issue when I try and update all updates at once

I find that there are times when twenty UPDATES appear and if I try and update all of them I get a middle finger.

And If I try installing a group of five of the same type I get a middle finger.

So, I find that sometimes I have to install them one by one, but I get the middle finger..... until I get to the one that needs installing first.

That matter should be fixed.

I also will look at "reset Updates".

Hello rogerthat,

Usually it's best to only install the updates that have been selected (checked) by default, and not the others first. Repeat until there are no more updates left, or until you have to select to install any remaining updates to install.

As for the amount, no problem. I downloaded 32 patches(and on another day 31), all at the same time.

As Brink says, only install the updates that have been selected. If not selected, wait a few days, sure it will be soon.
