Need patch kb959247


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, I tried checking with Microsoft and I was informed that "The Knowledge Base (KB) Article You Requested Is Currently Not Available" pertaining to your required KB959247. Sorry.

However, I checked further and was informed that the actual message is:
"The Windows Vista operating system is not fully up-to-date, and theKB929547 Vista Patch is not present. If you install AVG on your systemwithout the KB929547 Vista Patch, you might experience significantsystem slowdown and internet connectivity issues."

Should this be the case, then what you probably need is KB929547 Vista Patch.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I HAVE JUST DOWNLOADED AVG FREE NOW I NEED VISTA PATCH KB959247 DO YOU NO WHERE I COULD GET THIS FROM


That is a KB article from Microsoft needed to install AVG with Vista.
If you look at where AVG says you need this KB it has two KB's listed there, one for Vista 32bit and one for Vista 64bit. Click on the blue writing that corresponds to your version of Vista and it will automatically open the Microsoft download page with the KB (knowledge base) download that you need.

I need the KB292547 Vista Patch so I can get AVG.


http://search.microsoft.com/results.aspx?mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US&q=KB292547%20Windows%20Update

indicates that there is no such thing as KB292547 on any of various Microsoft sites. Besides, since when has anyone needed to install an update to Windows in order to run AVG.. I also looked on both my XP and Vista machines and neither have this patch mentioned, so I then looked up all patches included in Vista SP-1 and it is not there either... Maybe you mistyped your KB #

Vista Patch


Simple, most unlikely solution: Try to download patch from microsoft website and install it.

Other Solution: Go to trained professional, (geeksquad or firedog), they will install it more simply and correctly.

Installation of software by them is probably like 30 bucks.
