Latest updates - KB977816 KB978338, KB978601 KB979309 KB979683, KB980232, KB981332, KB890830 - cause several problems

My computer has completely changed after the installation of this series of updates.  The application home screen now a password (I had set it for automatic logon).  The appearance of the taskbar, menu start, shutdown dialog all changed.  I had to restore my system to get back to where I had been before.

I am also unable to apply KB978338 and get code 80004005 When trying to submit a new application.
Have also downloaded KB978338 manually and applied as a few hits seem to suggest that fix - without success.
I echo what the experience of IanDLS. -On the application had issues with iexplorer but DVDs ok - reboot several times seems to have settled things down with some KB978338 applied.
It seems to be a theme in the success of google it is a material incompatiblility software.
I have Vista 6.0 Build 6002: Service Pack 2
Interestingly, I also have a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop similar to Craig Goodrich.
I'll check on HP Pavilion dv6000 KB978338.
Anyone who solve this please post difficulty.



This is now fixed on my machine.

    I received notice that Windows cannot be updated for some time. I tried the fix where I am to empty a folder and reset it according to the instructions in the menu help.

  • Latest updates of Windows for Nvidia 9500 gt, causing problems

    I have a Nvidia 9500 GT vidocard in my pc running Windows 64-bit edition and do not use the pc for gaming.
    All stable and fine until the batch of updates from windows in March.
    I installed all the updates (major & optional); the optional updates included a large for Nvidia.
    the pc then started freezing whenever I closed Firefox or IE.
    Tried the following, but without success:
    (a) Firefox reset
    (point) - did not work!
    (c) push dirver; didn't work...

    The situation recovered by retrieving the Acronis backup January State system.

    In the face of the long list of windows updates, I installed only the important windows ones and the optionals left, including NVIDIA.

    Everything is stable throughout the rest of the month of March and until this week.

    Monday 8 I got Acronis backup of what had been the stable system.
    Tuesday, last batch of updates has arrived and I installed all the more important. Creating restore point and installed separately all the accessories (including the NVIDIA), creating another restore point.

    No prize for guessing that freezing after closing Firefox or IE started!

    Tried a), b) and c) above again, all without success, and finally allowed to restore pc Monday using Acronis.

    When I checked then windows updates, NVidia is now shown as important (not an option).

    I installed all the updates (except Nvidia) and ok at the moment.

    I'm tempted to follow "if it isn't broken, don't fix it approach" by ignoring the Nvidia Important Update.

    Are there reasons why this should cause me problems?
    Is it possible to hide this update Nvidia Important so that I can't install it inadvertently with the next batch of updates Windows Important?

    Thanks for the info about the system restore. I hope that the system remains stable and that I won't have to see if safe mode system restore work - fingers crossed.

    Would appreciate your comments on my approach to ignore "NVidia Important Update" in my opinion, is the problem cause and hide in Windows Update.

  • Hello. I installed the latest update of Firefox and when I start a new tab page displays not now my entry from google line.please help.tks

    Hello. I installed the latest update of Firefox and when I start a new tab page displays not now my google input line. I use Windows 10. Until the recent update (v4.1.01) each time I started a new tab the new page would show the google search entry line which is my default. Can help you to restore this feature? TKS

    Hi, 41 of Firefox, you must use the add-on tab override (browser.newtab.url replacement), to make changes to the page tab.

    Once installed, open the Add-ons (Ctrl + Shift + A) Manager > Extensions, and then look for the new tab override and click Options to set your preference.

    Notice, if you want only the new tab to be the same as your home page, you can use the Add on new tab homepage instead.

    You will then need to restart Firefox for all changes to take effect.

    If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you.

  • The latest Update of Firefox does not work with YouTube?

    On a few days ago, I went on YouTube to upload a video. For some reason, it gave me a message that says "request invalid. Authentication has expired.
    Not only that, if I do other things such as taste/do not love a video, or add a video to my favorites or another list of reading, it is said that the service is not available.
    I also had a problem trying to respond to the other comments in the videos. Anytime I type on my comment and click the post button, it says something like "error, try again."
    Now, when it comes to other things like just watching and looking for videos, I have no problem.

    I thought it might have something to do with the latest update of Firefox, because I tried to use YouTube with other browsers and it works perfectly well, and I was not having problems with YouTube before the update.

    No idea if the update could affect something that causes these questions?

    We have seen reports that causes the extension DownloadHelper 4.9.14 with some features on YouTube.

  • Slate 8 pro latest update crashed

    Hi all

    I use a HP 8 Pro 7600el (Italian version) that I had updated to KitKat by downloading the to site Web from HP (version 1.01.01) and installation of the recovery image.

    All this is fine for a few months until yesterday when Android said that an update was available.

    I started the update, when restarting, after awhile while the guarded Tablet crushing, the update failed with a generic "Update error".

    I restarted the Tablet and Android started, but all applications, including native Android, keep crashing (tons of pop-up windows 'app XXX has stopped').

    To solve the problem, I tried already:

    -Cleaning of the cache in the menu boot recovery: don't not fixed

    -Restoration of the factory in the menu boot recovery settings: not fixed (now the Tablet keeps giving messages 'app has stopped' and also the application assistant startup crashes)

    -Install the latest I got SD: failure ' cos is an older version of the current

    I tried to download the last (1.01.01) on the HP website, but it is not available.

    I see 3 options, 2 are versions JellyBean, third and most recently who should be KitKat shows only a null pointer.

    I tried downgrading to the last JellyBean but I get an "error to say" and the process stops.

    Can someone please:

    -Tell me where I can find the last image of KitKat for the Tablet?

    -Offer another way to restore the Tablet?

    Thanks for your help



    have managed to fix the tablet on mine.

    Will give just a quick update in case anyone else is interested/had the same problem.

    Fortunately, I had left the "" with the image of KitKat I had originally downloaded from HP website for updating the tablet.

    The "" could not be installed directly from the boot environment of recovery because of the tablet with a newer version of the software installed.

    I noticed that the "" contained, among other things, a file of "recovery.img" containing the image to boot from the recovery partition.

    The process was as follows:

    (1) connect the tablet to the PC via USB and boot in the recovery environment

    (2) use the application of Protocol and "fastboot.exe' 'fastboot' of Google to empty completely the 'recovery', 'System' and the scores of 'user data '. Also the recovery partition must be deleted ' cos it seems that the recovery somewhere environment stores the information about the latest version installed and prevents so the "" must be installed.

    (3) restart the tablet that do not have any valid system or boot from recovery will enter emergency start mode

    (4) using the Protocol 'fastboot' flash 'recovery.img' to '' in the "recovery" partition

    5) restart in mode 'recovery '.

    (6) the recovery mode install the "" KitKat image using the method "sideload". This time it works ' cos the recovery environment has no information on previously installed SW versions.

    Best regards
