Update fails reply from microsoft

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Ray &Fran, Jul 13, 2007.

  1. Either don't get it (mark it not to tell you again) or tell us specifically
    it is doing.

    Error?
    Event Log?
    Repeating over and over?

    Did you manually download the 928366 patch and install it or automatic
    updates or web page?

    Shenan, I think you need to chill a bit.

    You're coming across quite shrill -- and pedantic -- in this thread.

  3. "MikeC" presented what they had done and I pointed out that beyond the small
    blurb about having uninstalled/reinstalled, we knew very little about the
    specific predicament. "Still No Joy" tells me very little and "MikeC" has
    not posted elsewhere in this thread that I see to know exactly what they are
    seeing.

    I then proceded to inquire if there was an error... Anything in the Event
    Log... Or was the update just repeating over and over. I also asked
    specifically how the update was aquired and attempted to be installed.

    That's this off-shoot of the thread...

    In another part of this thread I tried to point out that not having a backup
    plan for your computer is not wise in ANY case - and that this sort of thing
    is pretty much a fine example of why it is wise to backup your
    computer/files. I even pointed out that backing up did not have to be
    complicated by any means.. simply burning a CD/DVD or copying files from one
    drive to another could be a backup - if you are doing it periodically and to
    the stuff that is actually important to you.

    I even tried to simplify (and pull out the excessive material) from the
    original post. It seems the email had too many "what ifs" in it to be
    easily understood and followed to me - so I thought I might try and assist
    and pull out those "what ifs" and just leave the actual steps and explain -
    in one sentence - what the solution was actually doing.

    I'm sorry if all that seems to make me a pedant in your eyes or if my
    repeating (the formatting never seemed to work and I am sorry I posted it
    three times without a positive result in that manner) presents my responses
    as shrill to you... But they are meant to be helpful.

    After all - what's the point of going through something like this and not
    even getting any knowledge out of it to help avoid it (or recover more
    quickly at the very least) in the future...? And yes - if history (and the
    archives of these newsgroups) shows us anything - it is that it *will* be
    repeated.

    Ok I bit the bullet and followed the instruction you posted in simple terms
    Shenan .

    stating all the info had been installed . All that being said this is the
    final result

    1 I still have the yellow sign in my task bar telling me i have updates to
    install . When I click on this it tells me I need to insatll KB928367

    2 I go Microsoft update page and it shows me that Kb 928367 needs to be
    installed

    3 I go to add/remove programs in control panel and this is what I have
    listed
    Microsoft.net framework V1.0.37505
    hot fix KB886906
    1.1 and 1.1 hotfix 928366

    Shenan,
    The links you posted are not valid. I get the "page not found" error.

    Thanks.

  12. As I said - the formatting got messed up and the running together ruined it.
    They are valid if you copy manually - but...

    Now you don't have to. ;-)
