Updates was installed: 9/5/16 at 7:30pm on my window 7 computer but it fail why?


It is normal for the updates to fail on windows update. Just let it do its thing on its own. It will retry to install them and may fail again. This is normal now if it tries over and over to install the same update and it fails then you most likely have software that is conflicting with the install. Either way it will eventually either install the update or stop trying. As it will see that it is in fact a conflict and move on. Don't be alarmed by this just let it go.

How to configure automatic updates in Windows


Microsoft routinely puts out updates for current versions of Windows (and Windows applications). Some of these are critical updates, such as security patches, while others just tweak a program or fix a bug. Your operating system will run better if you stay up to date on the important updates, and an easy way to do this is by using Windows automatic updates.

To turn on automatic updates, right click on My Computer (in Windows Vista or 7, right click Computer) and select Properties. Then go to the Automatic Updates tab. Here you will see the different update options.

The safest choice is to pick Automatic, which will check for updates on a schedule that you choose (daily or weekly, at a certain time) and download any new updates it finds. However, if you want some control over which updates are installed, you can choose either of the next two options:

- Download updates for me, but let me choose when to install them

or

- Notify me but don't automatically download or install them.

If you pick either of these two choices, a yellow shield icon with an exclamation point will appear in the system notification tray when new updates are available, and you can download or install them by clicking on it.

The last option is to turn off automatic updates completely. Choosing this option may leave your computer at risk, because you won't get any security fixes Microsoft comes out with. If you do choose to turn automatic updates off, you should check for updates manually once in a while by visiting Microsoft's Windows Update web page at WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com.

Whichever option you choose, click Apply at the bottom of the window to save your preference.

How to disable automatic updates on XP windows?


To turn on Automatic Updates yourself, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl, and then press ENTER.
  2. Click the Automatic Updates tab, and then click to select one of the following options. We recommend that you select the Automatic (recommended) Automatically download recommended updates for my computer and install them option.
    • Automatic (recommended) Automatically download recommended updates for my computer and install them

      If you select this option, Windows recognizes when you are online and uses your Internet connection to find updates on the Windows Update Web site or on the Microsoft Update Web site that apply to your computer. Updates are downloaded automatically in the background, and you are not notified or interrupted during this process. An icon appears in the notification area of your taskbar when the updates are being downloaded. You can point to the icon to view the download status. When the download is complete, you receive another message in the notification area so that you can review the updates that are scheduled for installation.
      • Click to select the day and time for scheduled updates to download and install. You can schedule Automatic Updates for any time of day. However, your computer must be on at the scheduled time for updates to be installed.
      • You can choose to install the updates as soon as they are finished downloading. To do this, click the download message (or update icon), and then click Install. If you choose not to install the updates when they finish downloading, Windows starts the installation on your set schedule.
    • Download updates for me, but let me choose when to install them

      If you select this option, Windows recognizes when you are online and uses your Internet connection to automatically download updates from the Windows Update Web site or from the Microsoft Update Web site. An icon appears in the notification area of your taskbar when the updates are being downloaded. You can point to the icon to view the download status. When the download is complete, you receive another message in the notification area so that you can review the updates that are scheduled for installation.
      • When you want to install the downloaded update, click the message (or update icon), and then click Install to install the update.
      • If you do not want to install a downloaded update, click Details, and then click to clear the check box next to that update to decline it.
    • Notify me but don't automatically download or install them

      If you select this option, Windows recognizes when you are online and uses your Internet connection to search for downloads from the Windows Update Web site or from the Microsoft Update Web site. An Automatic Updates icon and message appear in the notification area of your taskbar when new updates are available to download or to install.
      • Click the icon or message to view the updates. If you do not want to download a selected update, click to clear the check box next to that update to decline it. Click Start Download to download the selected updates. The Automatic Updates icon remains in the notification area of your taskbar while the updates are being downloaded. You can point to the icon to view the download status.
      • When the download is complete, you receive another message in the notification area stating that the updates are ready to install. Click the Automatic Updates icon or the message, and then click Install to install the updates.
  3. Click OK.

Install updates


Have you tried to install them individually? When you click the yellow shield in the taskbar and get the window where you can select Automatic or Custom Install, select Custom and just select 1 of them. Try that for all three.

BTW, the first 2 updates you mention are for Office 2003 programs (Outlook and Excel) and the last one is for Silverlight. Do you have all of those installed on your computer?

Windows XP home edition service pack 3


OK, do you wish to install further updates? if you dont, then what you can do is disable automatic updates

To do this, then right click on the desktop the icon My pc and select properties. The sub menu Automatic Updates you will find on the top, click that and check the box disable automatic updates

Some Automatic updates are dangerous and can cause your computer to stop working correctly. I would recommend you disable them. Once this is disabled, restart your computer and the access denied messages will disappear. This is because its most likely you have automatic updates set to download and install automatically. But once you disable this, problem should be solved.

If you have any more questions, please let me know

AVG will no install error 0x800736b1 also retrirve my desktop


Hi there. My name is Alex and Im here to help solve your problem

First of all, AVG has always had a problem installing when windows updates are enabled and download and install automatically. I would recommend uninstalling all updates that have been installed to your computer and disable automatic updates which I will explain to you below

To uninstall the updates.
Click start, settings and click control panel.
On the icon add and remove programs, please double click
You will now see all the programs and updates installed on your computer. The microsoft updates are located near to the bottom of the list and there may be a lot of them installed. You can only uninstall one update at a time. You may be prompted that uninstalling a windows update may cause a program not to work properly, this is normal so you can continue uninstalling them. When you have uninstalled these updates please restart your computer.

To disable the automatic updates

Right click on your icon My computer or My pc which is located on the desktop or on the start menu (if you are running windows xp) and select properties
You will then see a sub menu called 'Automatic updates' and inside this menu you will have the choice to disable the updates

If you are using windows xp and you have system restore enabled on your computer, then you will be able to take the computer back to an earlier time when it was working correctly. Please save all documents first to insure that nothing will be lost if you decide to do a 'system restore'. There is a very friendly wizard to help you restore your computer. You can get to the system restore by clicking start, programs, accesories, system tools and selecting system restore.

Regarding your problem about your desktop disappearing, to restore your icons on the desktop, right click anywhere on the desktop and select organise icons and be sure that the heading 'show desktop icons' is ticked. This will restore your desktop items

Last of all try installing AVG, if you still experience problems with this issue, then please let me know. Im happy to help
