Windows update annoyance

Howdy

I bet you get this alot, sorry but i have a minor update problem. Ive just done a fresh install on my system. All going fairly well, istalled a couple of hundered updates except it wont install two updates no matter how many times I try.

These are KB2937610 & KB3074543

I ran CClean to get rid of temperatary files but that made no difference.

Thought you might know an easy way.

Thanks

Hi,
See you have not used the newer method of clean installing like I suggested on your other thread
Strange install problem

When manually installing updates you need to switch your update settings to Never check for updates and restart the machine first.

Also after restart verify the windows update service is stopped and set it to Manual first or it will conflict with the stand alone installer.

Hi,
If you've never dealt with Onedrive all you have to do is check the box for the one you want I have the 32 bit one pointed to here because someone else needed it and click the download button


After it completes right click the zip folder and select Extract all
Run the update.
Make sure the windows update service is not running before you attempt to install it.

Here's a list of the first round you'll probably see after
W7 not updating?
