Windows 7: Error configuring of Windows Update (KB2670838)

Error configuring of Windows Update (KB2670838)

Hello sevenforums community,

I want to install the platform update (KB2670838) on my system.
I downloaded the update manually from microsoft website and installed it; so far so good.

Now i need to reboot my system to "activate" the update.
Windows comes to a point where it says "error when configure the windows updates" and it resets every change done so far.

SP1 and the newest graphic driver are installed etc.
I already tried to fix this problem with some suggestion of the microsoft website:
  • Microsoft Fit It doesnt work
  • Hotfix KB947821
If you want more informations about the system or the log file of WindowsUpdate, just tell me.

Thanks and regards

I would not install this update or go out of your way
Did you read the article AMD has had many issues with this update

Compatibility issues on certain computers that have hybrid video cards

Important Some computers that have a combination of Intel and AMD video cards in a hybrid configuration have drivers installed that are incompatible with this platform update.

After you install this update and then restart the computer, the computer may crash because of these compatibility issues. In this situation, you receive a Stop error message that resembles the following:

Note This Stop error includes the "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" text and the Igdpmd64.sys or Igdpmd32.sys file name.

To resolve this issue, you may have to install update 2834140 ("0x00000050" Stop error after you install update 2670838 on a computer that is running Windows 7 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1). Additionally, use the following tables to install the latest compatible drivers for your video card.

I dont think my graphic card is running in a hybrid configuration but im not an expert.

For me this update is necessary because i have some trouble with DirectD3D and it seems like this update is the solution to my problem.

I tried to install it the last 2-3 days multiple times with possible solutions of other websites.
But every single time there is the error message...

Just an inquiry :)
Best way to clean install now days is manually installing these three updates KB3020369 & KB3125574 & KB3172605 in that order so that is why I asked

And I would guess KB2670838 would be included in KB3125574 which has all updates through April 2016.
