Windows 7: Updates failed, yet still appear on 'Installed Updates' list.

03 Nov 2015   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64

Thanks for all the replies, everyone!

I figured that the 215+ updates were standard procedure for a brand new computer. These were all updates I had to install very shortly after I installed my network card and granted my PC internet access. I haven't seen an Win 10-related content, the updates are mostly for security from what I can tell.

No worries on the late reply! We've all got lives and computers are always trying to steal them from us.

All three of the updates that failed to install are labeled as 'important', but strangely a framework update is merely 'recommended'.

Anyway, I had read about the possibility of updates failing to install due to issues with prerequisites, but I wasn't sure if that might be my issue since I had installed over 215 updates and they were all automatic/suggested by Microsoft, as opposed to manual downloads. At any rate, I figured I'd wait at least a week before doing anything. Maybe there will have been new updates sent out, after which I'll try reinstalling the failed pieces.
