  • Error code 800b0100 when using windows update

    Installation of Vista 32 bit, most of my windows updates do not settle. The files downloaded through Windows Update, which is set to be installed after asking, not automatically.  Update process begins, progress window moves toward completion, then at one point in the installation stops and the status display indicates failure of the installation.
    I could not install the updates for Vista Home premium 32-bit system.  Downloaded the State of preparation of system tool update, which the log file reports 5 errors, which seem to be missing files.  Question is how to get and install the missing files?

    Interesting answer.  Anti Virus is McAfee Security Center v 9.15, last updated 19/11/09 (interesting to note that it is not updated since then...)

    You see the effects of 2 months-plus hijackware infection.

    Personal data backup (which none should be considered 100% reliable at this point) then format the HARD disk and do a clean install of Windows.  Please note that a repair installation (upgrade AKA on-site) will NOT fix it!

    HOW to do a clean install of Vista: section "If you want to reinstall Windows Vista by running a new installation...". "of

    Once installed the clean, you will have the equivalent of a "new computer" in order to take care of everything on the page following before otherwise connect the machine to a network or the internet and before using a flash drive or the SD card that is not brand new, or has not been freshly formatted:

    4 steps to help protect your new computer before going online

    NB: No matter what Norton or McAfee free trial which is preinstalled on the computer when you bought will be reinstalled (but invalid) when Windows is reinstalled. You MUST uninstall the trial for free and download/run the removal tool before installing updates, Windows Service Packs, or updates IE and before installing your new anti-virus application.

    It's more for info, but it would be great if MS past this info to their developers so that the Windows broken for KB976884 update package can be fixed.

    Newspapers MSI mentioned above show the following error information, all related to being too restrictive registry permissions.  Perhaps the restrictive registry permissions are design due to the product; in which case the update package must be fixed.

    Here are the logs in order, that they do not have:

    Resolve open Regedit and search on the first GUID after components.  The full registry path you are looking for is "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-1-5-18\Components\.

    Don't find the GUID "00002119E20000000000000000F01FEC" as there are hundreds of entries and you will be forever.

    For example, in find point 5 '6F949E36CB3004C50AF18C3B9B1A1EE8' you will see that the key has void key and one of these sub keys will be '00002119E20000000000000000F01FEC '.  When you select '00002119E20000000000000000F01FEC' you will see you get "access denied".

    First STEP: right-click on the "00002119E20000000000000000F01FEC" subkey and select "permissions".  Windows will tell you that you can view this subkey.  Click on the "Advanced" button and click the group to select the 'administrators' tab 'Property' under ' to a change in ownership: "& check the 'Replace owner of subcontainers and objects' option click on 'APPLY '.  If you click on 'OK', you will get access denied.

    STEP 2: select the "permissions" tab and make sure that both the "Include permissions can be inherited from parents of the object" & "Replace all permissions of child object with permissions inheritable from this object" options are checked.  Click 'APPLY '.  Do not click on 'OK' you will get "Access denied" yet

    Repeat the steps for each GUID registry and then try and install the update via Windows Update.

    Whenever you see an error in the update Windowsw it generates an error log and stores it in the Temp of Windows folder, normally located in C:\Windows\Temp.  Sort by date to get the last newspaper at the top.

    The error logs are normally preceded by MSI in the form MSIxxxxx.LOG.

    I hope this works if you can not get rid of this error, but I would have preferred that ms fixed properly!

    Good luck

  • Error when using windows update on bootcamp

    I used bootcamp to install windows 10 home complete edition on my iMac 21.5 with Retina display. I had installed windows 8.1 because I thought that it would be cheaper to get an and upgrade to windows 10 but the update never worked. Whenever I have run windows update it lists a bunch of updates but the problem lies in the update of drivers intel. Whenever it will install those, it restarts like 3 times and then goes into automatic and removes this update. So I never could go from 8.1 to 10. I purchased 10 windows and installed, but the same thing happens. I run windows update, and it lists the normal updates when you get a new start. When it comes to drivers intel for iris graphics pro, it restarts and goes into automatic. In windows 8.1, she paused, but in windows 10 it ceases to be in this vicious circle. It restarts, then ASR, then starts up without the updates, and then running windows update and restarts againg and again so all this. I tried to delete the drivers intel bootcamp installed and that seems to work, but it still restarts. Is there a way I can hope to make it work as it should, or I'll just have to consider removing the drivers or going back to 8.1? Someone please help! :/

  • Error 646 when installing Windows updates

    Whenever I try to install the following updates to the window, I get the error 646 answer:

    KB981715 KB980729 KB978382 KB978380

    I use Vista and Internet Explorer

    Sorry, you have problems getting your patches installed. I have a number of things for you to look at.  First of all, are your Windows Update and the Background Intelligent Transer Services set to Automaticand started . You can check these settings by typing services.msc in the search box of the start menu.

    Sometimes in order to get patches to install correctly, you must perform these tasks manually.

    (1) Download Center to visit Microsoft:
    (2) search for each update code that begins with the letters "KB" and followed by a set of numbers (i.e. KB979309).
    3) click on the link for the download and then click on download and run.  You must accept the contract agreement, and then click continue.
    (4) repeat this process for each download of updates Windows could not install.
    (5) to rerun the update from Microsoft, click find updates.  If all goes well, it will show that you are completely patched.

    If this does not work, try to run the Microsoft OneCare safety scanner.  Sometimes it will solve problems of hidden registry, or erase viruses can prevent the installation of patches: Click full service scan, and then Quick scan (full scan takes a long time to complete). Try the patches.

    Hope this helps,
