Windows Update will not find or install the updates

I turned on my laptop last night after several months of inactivity, and when I ran Windows Update I met an interesting problem. Windows Update took a long time to look so I decided to let it run all night. When I checked on this subject in the morning, Windows Update has been always looking, but I had already received a notification in the taskbar informing me that there are updates available.

I could not cancel the search, so I restarted my laptop, and when I logged Windows again, I saw the list of the updates that are available even if the "last check for updates" was always showing "22/05/2016 at 22:46. I selected all important updates and tried to download and install them, but after several hours, the status was still stuck at 0%. I canceled the installation and noticed that the update of Silverlight has been downloaded and ready to be installed. I tried to update only one without success and was finally able to get it by allowing Windows Installer updates immediately before the power off of the laptop. When I turned my phone back and connected, I could do the same for an update of the framework.

So far, those who have been the only two updates to cross, and I could not download or install the rest. An additional problem is that my Windows Update always displays a prompt stating "Windows 10 upgrade booked" despite the deadline passing on the free update. When I see the confirmation, I get a popup Windows 10 stating that the offer has ended. I don't know if this is related to why Windows Update does not work, but I saw more guests for 10 Windows on my main computer once the delay.

Other things I've tried are to update manually the time at the time of Microsoft servers and try to download and install the updates one at a time, but neither contributed to the situation. In addition, Microsoft Security Essentials apparently downloaded and installed the latest definition files on its own, so it would seem that the problem is only related to Windows Update.

I've attached screenshots of my Windows Update history and update. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Satellite L850 - Win8.1 will not let me install the chipset drivers

    Hello

    After I've upgraded to pro 8.1 windows 64 bit 64-bit windows 8 (preinstalled), I thought that windows will not let me install the chipset drivers (downloaded from "toshiba site" for windows 8.1 pro 64-bit), but they stay with windows drivers installed for them.
    The Device Manager displays all installed and properly using. In addition, during the implementation was executed to install the chipset driver, he skipped most of them, to install a missing driver only (unfortunately have not kept any screen to show). I tried to install using the Device Manager (automatic search or manually navigating the computer files downloaded from the site), but it keeps saying that the drivers are up-to-date (drivers with the version from 2006, when later seen on the site are 2014). Any suggestion what to do?

    Model name: Satellite L850-1MK
    Version of the operating system: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro 6.3.9600

  • Network management problem, computer laptop Windows 7 will not find other computers on any network, however all other computers on the network can access Windows 7 laptop.

    Basically, the issue I'm having is that my laptop does not connect to any other computer to access the actions or other files.  Other computers on the network can access my computer laptop shares and files without any problems.  Operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium x 64.

    What I tried:

    restarted
    uninstalling and reinstalling the files and printers, sharing maps and restart after completion
    all disabled firewall
    tried with IPv6 enabled and disabled without change, so it is currently enabled
    tried on a Wi - Fi and the differences are listed below in the section work (work is wireless)
    able to ping other comptuers
    access to other computers is permitted by other computers

    problem extends over several networks, IE I noticed it at home last night and the followed problem my laptop at work this morning.
    The problem is slightly different on the two sites.

    At home:
    I can see the other computers on the network, but I am unable to access it, even if I have permission, but other computers can access to my laptop.

    At work:
    Cannot even find other computers on the network but they can find and access my laptop.

    I have worked on this problem of non stop for several hours and did much more than what is said, but I am unable to remember everything.  I should have been taking notes: P

    Asked this question in the Windows 7 forum also because the problem was between windows 7 and Vista.

    Hello

    If it has started, you can try a system restore - an update "might" have caused the problem.

    1. try a system restore back to a point before that happened. And immediately thereafter enter
    Control Panel - Windows updates - top left settings and set it to download and informs you instead
    Automatic. Leave it until you are sure that everything is OK and then you can add them one at a time
    to troubleshoot BUT click right on and HIDE all the driver updates. Also stop at day of drivers like below
    and let this value - manually search for drivers when you think you need. (See how and why to)
    stop day of drivers below.)

    I had completely forgotten the system restore!  While looking into the system restore, I found that when I moved into my new House and has cable Internet installed, the cable technology installed a program of comcast on my computer.  This caused me to not be able to connect with other computers.  After rolling back to install it before it works!   Thank you.

  • Windows 8 will not let me move the AppData\Local folder to new drive

    All,

    I wanted to get my user account files from C drive which is a smaller SSD drive at most of my hard drive. I encountered several problems.

    A lot of trial and error, I was able to move each file of folder of the user account to an identical structure on my drive D (a "spinner"). Once I worked on all the kinks, everything worked without problems.

    However, I was unable to move the hidden AppData folder. I discovered there are three subfolders: roaming local and LocalLow. I was able to move LocalLow and roaming without problem. However, Local gave me problems.

    I discovered that the Local had some folders and files under it for which I have no permissions. Once I gained permissions for them, I thought I was on my way. The command to move the folder (using the Properties dialog box) has started working on the transition of 79 000 files. He moved all but 19 of them. He choked on all 12-15 files that have been opened and used by the system and the balance of the 19 had too long of a file name. So, I was disappointed.

    I then decided to create another administrator account and the sign of the current account and connect to the temporary administrator account that I had just created. I thought that I could then move the files because they would not be opened and used by the system. But, when I open the Properties dialog box, the LOCATION tab was gone, so I could not move the files.

    I need answers to two questions:

    • Why Microsoft would give the user a LOCATION tab with a NAVIGATION button, if it was impossible to move the AppData\Local folder?
    • Is there another way that a layman like me can change this setting? Can someone direct me to here? (Such as it is, 2 of the 3 AppData files are on drive D and 1 is always the SSD C drive.)

    Thank you.

    Matt

    OK, I fixed using a symbolic link. I moved my complete record of users. Here are the steps I used:

    • Create a folder on the "C" drive, called "this_is_c" and create a folder on the disk "D", called "this_is_d" - it is only for identification purposes in the later stages.
    • Boot from the Windows 8 Pro disc. (In other words, will not start hard drive.)
    • Do not choose 'Install now' - choose ' repair you computer.
    • Then choose troubleshooting
    • Choose Advanced Options
    • Then choose command line
    • The player that appears corresponds to the player 'X' - which is the recovery disk.
    • Type "C:" to switch to the 'C' drive
    • Type "Dir" and see if you see the folder "this_is_c".
    • If you do not, continue to change letters until you see this folder.
    • It worked that the 'C' drive during this "repair" was maybe the same as my 'C' drive when I boot normally.
    • Find the "D" drive through the same process - that is, try to find the folder "this_is_d".
    • It worked that the "D" drive during this "repair" was maybe the same as my "D" drive when I boot normally.
    • Type this command: xcopy/e/k/o/h/b c:\Users d:\Users see the next chip
    • First drive name must be the name of the drive as the "repair" attributed to your normal boot drive 'C '. The second disc should be burned as it would be during a normal boot. So, in my case, these conditions were the same. Note: use a capital 'U' for users instead of lowercase 'u' in users.
    • Type "D" when prompted.
    • Type the following command: rd /s c:\Users
    • Type this command: mklink /d c:\Users d:\Users
    • Type this command: exit
    • Continue to start.

    This will create a symbolic link that will redirect all actions to or from users on 'C' folder in the new folder users on "D". In regards to windows system knows, he is still sending the disk of 'C '. It is just redirected.

    This works perfectly for me. I installed apps and run programs without problem.

    It's a sort of understand. But it works for me.

    If your using windows firewall... goto Control Panel > windows firewall > change settings > DESACT.

    If using your firewall software, then it depends on where the settings to disable the firewall.

    Once the game has installed switch back on the firewall, this should allow the firewall to accept the sims 3, if not you will need to go into the settings of exceptions and add sims 3 for her.
