Features of Installation of Windows 7 software service stops responding when the system configuration

I noticed that Windows 7 RTM (all versions, x 86 / x 64) has a bug on its features to Software Installation service which causes updates Windows hang during setup of the system (i.e. Windows is stuck on the message "preparing to configure Windows - do not turn off your computer"). M$ suggests to perform a repair with system restore or re - install the operating system from scratch, but is not an effective solution.

Given that Microsoft has published 5 updates for setup of functionality of software on Vista, I wonder why they don't release a similar patch for Windows 7?


I opened a support to report the problem incident, which probably occurs after installationreliability KB974431 update(Windows6 1 - KB974431 - x 64.msu).

When Windows Update installing KB974431 update , the following error message appear when Windows configures updates after the system restarts and the installation of the update fails with error code ofC004F050 .
Above the error due to the Windows operating system can not pass genuineWindows validation (WGA) . installation of KB974431 will fail if validation fails, or returns a status not valid or not genuine. Here is the procedure to fix it:

1. click on Start .
2. in the run box, type cmd and press ENTER.
3. you will see the black command prompt window.
4. enter sfc/scannow
5. If this disable the grace period, it is reset using this code: slmgr /rearm
6. restart your computer.
7. try to update again.

Hope this solution helps!

  • Windows 7 pro sp1 - stop only when the key


    I have to hold the stop button to shut down my computer in windows 7 Pro sp1 can anyone help.

    also when it goes into sleep or hiberate I can't touch just a button to restore the screen, I have to hold the power button / stop and restart.\\thanks

    The computer shuts down correctly if you use the option on the screen (Start menu > power option)?

    In general, this type of behavior that you see means that you are missing a driver for your computer.  You can fortunately usually just go to the Web site of the manufacturer of your computer, under their support section and find your model number and re - download driver needed.  It will be labeled as a chipset driver or driver ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface).  This is the driver that allows the computer functions related to power as a 'safe shutdown' when you press the switch for example.

  • Help - Tablet Iconia B1 - get messages "Email service stopped because of the weak campaigns"


    When switching on my B1 Iconia Tablet I get message "Email service stopped because of the weak campaigns" and "you can delete the unused e-mail or applications to retrieve campaigns."  Also when trying to download a new application, which is not allowing them installed indicating the space of campaigns.

    However, there is much space of campaigns as the shelf a time the built in memory and an extra memory card. Details under settings under campaigns shows:
    Space total 0.98 GB
    Apps (content data & media app) 792 MB

    12,39 GB total space
    Apps (content data & media app) 332MB
    Photos, video 9.48 MB
    Audio (music, ringtones, podcasts, etc.) 20,00 KB
    Download 7.25 MB
    Available 12,03 GB

    29,49 GB total space
    Available 27,00 GB

    As you can see from the above information there are plenty available storage space on the shelf.
    Also I changed nothing with regard to the settings since the Tablet (about 3 months) so it still has factory settings.

    Please can you advice how to fix this problem so that email and download installation restored to the tablet.  I would appreciate it if all instructions to solve the problem can be detailed step by step easy to follow.

    Thank you

    If you go into settings, on the Tablet, which is listed under the device information?

    I think that the main problem you see is that the email app is eager store items in the 'main' part of the files, not the SD card internal or external space.  If you are looking to ~ 200 MB total space, which may be too weak so that it can consider the space of "viable."  (1 GB-800 MB = 200 MB)

    I suggest you move the extra apps, etc. from the main space on the SD storage.

    5.) open a prompt on the Windows 7 computer.

    Hi Alan,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that the computer does not restart even after running Startup Repair and I will be happy to answer your query. I appreciate the efforts made to try to make it work. Let me ask you;

    • How do you run the Startup Repair?
    • Do you have Windows 7 repair disc?
    • Remember to no particular change in the computer before the show?
    • Have you plugged an external equipment, except the keyboard and mouse?
    • You are able to start the computer in safe mode?
    • What is the brand and model of the computer?

    Note: BIOS change / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

    There could be several reasons why he's not leaving including hardware as well. In addition, it could be because the master boot record (MBR) has been damaged. When you try to use the Startup Repair tool to repair the MBR, the Startup Repair tool indicates that no problem was found or it does not work yet.

    If you have any connected USB flash drive or other external devices connected to the computer, if you please, remove them and try to run the Startup Repair tool.

    If you haven't tried using Windows 7 repair disc, you can try the following:

    1. Insert the Windows 7 disc
    2. restart your computer
    3. When asked if you want to boot from your DVD player, do it.
    4. Select your language, click Next.
    5. click on repair your computer
    6. Select the operating system you want to repair.

    You can also perform the system restore by selecting the restore point when you think it worked very well. System Restore, choose advanced options using the disc.

    Important: When you use system restore to restore the computer to a previous state, the programs and updates that you have installed after this date are deleted.

    I also recommend to contact the computer manufacturer to get the done diagnostic equipment.

    Hope this information is useful. Please feel free to answer in the case where you are facing in the future other problems with Windows.

    I guess you follow this KB: http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1002503

    But seems like you have file system errors.

    Try to restart your system in init 1

    Then use fsck command to check your ext3 file system (remember that the file systems are not in use and use the - f option).

    Method 2:

    You can also try running a Scan SFC (System File Checker):
    SFC/scannow is a very useful command that you can use in any version of Windows. When the SFC (System File Checker) command is used with the/scannow switch, the tool analyzes all the important files of Windows on your computer and replace if necessary.

    Missing and the corruption of the operating system (like many DLLs) files are probably the main cause of the major problems of Windows. In view of this, plus the fact that the SFC /scannnow is completely automatic and very easy to use, the tool should be usually one of your top not troubleshooting.
