Problems with the installation of windows updates and reboot the computer

When you try to restart the computer it freezes on "installation not turn off computer.". Currently have 20 updates which will not be installed. computer says CCC.exe prevents the computer from restarting and getting error code 80240016 when you try to install the updates

Restore point:

Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.



If restore work not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

ISO Burner:

It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.


Error message when you try to install the updates on the Windows Update Web site or the Microsoft Update Web site: "0 x 80240016.

  • Problems with my installation of Windows XP and my computer does not start on the CD.

    original title: HELP for the installation of Win XP.

    Hi Jorge,.

    So the only thing I can think is that it is a sort of master/slave thing.

    Your IDE HDD will be a Knight, probably alongside where the power cable is inserted, to dictate whether the player will be considered to be a master, slave, or cable select. Assuming that it is the only HARD drive in the PC, make sure it is designated "master". Then, in the BIOS, make sure that the boot order is specified as HDD0 first (as opposed to HDDx where x is greater than zero).

    In addition, assuming that the data cable is the new type of Ribbon with strands of 80, make sure that the blue connector of the IDE data cable is in the motherboard and that the end of the black connector is in the HARD disk and, if it is a two-disc data cable, do not use the gray connector.

  • Could get a new router block printing? We had a lot of problems with the computer in the last week and a half. Bought new router and now the printer does not print. :-(

    (1) we went to DirecTV. Then the same day, our internet computer is down. I asked our current provider, Suddenlink, to let them know we had them to another - but we wanted to keep for the internet.

    (2) called DirecTV to investigate why our internet went down at the same time they installed? They said that they did nothing to cause that. We waited 5 days to make out and also install the third TV that was promised. The second tech gave things a lookover and said, once again, that there is nothing unusual during their passage to cause the problem.

    (3) called Suddenlink. They said it was the router. Called the people of Netgear. They said that the router was too old. We needed to pay an exorbitant sum for support and when I told him I'd rather just buy a new router and get free technical support for 90 days... and I personally do not have the credit cards in that time. (it's my mother s equip and I wonder it for the computer) when the guy told me that he could help and hung up on us, even though I was pleading for him to wait until I put my mother on the phone. (I'm in my 40s... not a kid).

    (4) Suddenlink called a few days later, when we got a new router (netgear brand NO!) Installed and I noticed that the 'ready' light was not 'on' on the modem. Their technology has said that he would check and call us in a few minutes. He did not.

    (5) the next day I called Suddenlink AGAIN. This time, I got a really nice customer service agent. She said she would send someone to check on it. It turns out that they had disconnected when I had called to pass only the TV.

    (6) in any case, we are finally online... only now... I can't the printer to work. :-(  This has worked before.  Could it be caused by the different router? I don't know about these things. I didn't even know what it was until someone at Radio Shack has explained to me. (I was not about to buy one at Wal-Mart - these poor people). The printer is a Canon Pixma MX340. We love him. The only thing is that it is difficult to clear the tasks or to reset. The only way to really do that is to simply pull the plug, unfortunately and restart the computer. But hey, it's a great printer, better than HP.

    We are under vista. The router is a Linksys wifi (which we have) N300 model E900.

    Of course I appreciate any help you can give. God bless you!

    Michelle and Ruth.

  • I have a problem with the computer work is not correctly after you install the KB2753842 update.

    This update of windows has been installed automatically today (22/12/2012) as the (successful with this date) shows on the Page update.  Since that it has been installed, the computer is constantly read/write on the disc at 100% at all times (i.e. non-stop).  Performance is significantly degraded.  I rebooted several times, whenever the system shows the updates are being configured on tap-dwon and commissioning.  I want to reinstall the update because I think that it was not successful, even if the display update Page shows successful installation.  When I try to find and remove the update under the Panel of control-> program and features-> Windows updates, this update is NOT displayed (latest updates are 13/12/2012).  How can I remove and reinstall this security update?  It is a BIG problem at the moment.  Computer is almost non-functional.  Thnx.

    Nirmal S, thank you.  System Restore did the trick.  I restored prior update checkpoint and then the system automatically re-installed the latest update (which is one I had a problem with).  Problem solved!  My computer working again 'normally '.

Then I opened the USB and no files were there. But always around 4 GB has been shown as being busy on the USB stick before formatting.
    My pc takes too long to restart, I tried a few 3 - 4 times and no updates have been installed or waiting to install after the 2nd time but when even he took more time than usual to restart and is compared to the other pc taking 2 X the time to restart, but two of them have installed bitdefender. Problem in my laptop toshiba, not pc lenovo, space time with more than 50 percent on the disk processor and Atom c.
    The files on my USB key are automatically replaced by shortcuts and so files open in a new tab and new cases opened are not those of origin who have been saved by me in this matter. Yet once I formatted and scanned, files, pc and USB but still facing the same USB key.
    1. all files are automatically displayed as shortcuts, even if I had pasted the original file
    2. once I click on open, I get an error and then after clicking on ok, some files get opened
    Before sending the email, I had formatted the USB scanned files on my HARD drive and then copied on the USB. The same problem persists. I think that when the files are displayed or open, the virus does something and change his behavior wrongly.

  • Problem with speech recognition in Windows 7 and MS Word 2010 - strange window opens

    I have been using speech recognition in Windows 7 to dictate in Word 2010.  Yesterday it worked fine: I did a number of training records, added a few new words in the speech dictionary and dictated a part of a document.  No major problems.

    Today, however, when I begin to dictate, rather than insert the words directly in my Word document, a secondary window will appear next to the insertion point and text appears here, with small buttons that say "insert" and "Cancel".  It's rather annoying - get the text dictated in the document, I must stop dictating and say "insert."  Is it possible to prevent that from happening?  As far as I know, I don't have any changes to the settings or program options to cause this.  Help!

    Thanks for the answer, but now I can't seem to reproduce the problem.  I don't know why what started, but it doesn't seem to be the case more.  Thank you.

  • I got a call from people claiming that there was a problem with the computer.

    Original title: scammed by PCWizards?

    A few days ago I received a call from PC assistants saying they were Windows operating system support. They tell me that they have noticed that I had many requests from spam junk that was slowing down my computer. Unfortunately, as I had a big problem with my computer in time, I bit. I was very nervous about it at the time, but since I had so many problems with my computer and that you didn't know what to do, I fell prey to their plot. They talked to me in a 6 month contract for a fee of $99.00. After they have finished the maintenance on my computer, it worked very well, too gullible me thought: maybe they are legitimate.

    At the end of the interview I googled their business and came across an article that has been exposed as the crooks and claims that Wizards PC installs a spyware sophisticated by giving them access to the victim's computer remotely.

    To reassure myself, I decided to call using my Norton Security System. Their technician checked my computer and found a few things that their technology did not that he should have done; such that no detected restore points, the registry was not cleaned (35 detected registry errors) and it did not remove some software malware browers (toolbars).

    On his recommendation, I recalled PC assistants. The first tech I talked didn't seem to know what he was doing, so I hung up with him and sent their support line and ask them to address these problems or I would withdraw the payment from my credit card. Almost immediately after sending the e-mail, another technician called me. Unknowingly, I had all ready filed a dispute with my credit card company. I intend to cancel the service, but I am still concerned by some spyware detected on my computer. What is the best way for me to handle this? How can I get authenic proof that I was definitely scammed and I should report it to the Internet Crime Center? Using my computer for a few basic daily functions, must not be so stressful!  Any constructive guidance would be greatly appreciated!

    It's a scam.

    Either these so-called "Microsoft" Tech companies want to sell you a worthless software, or remote access to your computer to try to steal your credit card and bank information and also achieve an identity theft on you.

    You gave them remote access and if you do Internet banking, contact your bank, explain, and change passwords.

    If you use your online credit card, cancel and get a new one issued to you.

    And the only way that willl you know that you are free to them is to backup your data and do a clean install of your operating system.


    And Microsoft does not contact you unless YOU have made prior arrangements with them to do.

    There is an article in the link I'm you provide at the end of this one

    Read this Information from Microsoft:

    "Avoid scams to phone for tech support.
