Why Won't My Computor Download Microsoft Critical Updates (85) Of


Can somone help me please? I cannot Download Security M/S Updates and now
there are (85) of them See Below! There seems to be a lot of this C...P going
on! However mine is more unusual and I have tried the Start> RUN> CMD sys32
etc" Nothing
I have also tried “all Firewalls off" and I have also checked IE 7 tools
options re: security level etc" all Ok?
However the last suggestion involved Checking Changing settings at
Win Explore >Programs > Windows Updates! But there is NO folder called
"Windows Update Folder " in "Programs" on my computer??? If anyone can help I
would Appreciate it as now my computer is taking Ages "15 min" to Startup as
well I don't know if this is related thanks in Hope. Dasha

RE: Why Won't My Computor Download Microsoft Critical Updates (85) Of

Hi Dasha,

You're actually on the wrong forum for XP, but I'll make a few comments anyway

Please confirm your system clock and Time Zone also the Date set properly,
Having it set incorrectly can cause this type of behavior.

Test this WGA diagnose test, connection to MS, that scripts working and a
new Validation tool
http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/diag/


Download CCleaner and Dial-ª-fix

Ccleaner - http://www.ccleaner.com ;
Note, uncheck Yahoos toolbar during instªll.

Do the scans with all the check marks ºn.

Run the above remover in safe mode then Ccleaner on all 3
settings(windows,apps & issues) and clear anything found reboot and see if it
still exists.

NOTE - The first time you run CCleaner's Issues scanner you'll have to keep
running it back-to-back until it finds nothing. One scenario is a registry
key may only be a reference pointing to a completely different location in
the registry and when it's removed then that reference link is also noticed
as being invalid on a subsequent scan. It's generally a good idea to keep
running the Issues scan until nothing is listed.



There is also a third-party fix which has had good results for a number of
folks here:
Dial-ª--Fix
http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix ;

Run this program with all the functions activated in safe mode. --it may
look as if the scan has frozen. DAF is actually doing lots of shoveling and
shuffling, so don't interrupt it.

Please read the page and Scroll down about 2/3 of the way to Download
Dial-ª-fix

Exit Safe Mode (Reboot)

Try the updates n0w


I hope this post is helpful.

Let us know how it works ºut

Re: Why Won't My Computor Download Microsoft Critical Updates (85) Of

You didn't say, or at least it's not clear, whether you tried getting the
updates using Internet Explorer, by going here:

http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

Some new ActiveX software has to be installed on XP before your computer can
be scanned. Just follow the prompts to do so, but it should then list and
download the same updates, and install them, as those you see in the taskbar
notification. If going to the site is successful, keep going back until
there are no more critical updates to install.

RE: Why Won't My Computor Download Microsoft Critical Updates (85) Of

Dear Engel My deepest Gratitude goes to you! I did all youi said and it
worked I have just downloaded the whole (85) without a hitch and everything
is well! I am not sure exactly which suggestion it was but I had CCleaner and
use it all the time (on Friday) but NEVER knew about the "ISSUES scan" and
boy was there some Garbage "Shovelled" out of that lot" that also means that
all the Defragging and weekly maintnence I have been doing has not been up
to scratch! I will start reading the "README's" in future" I also beleve that
"Dialafix" played a part too as on the CC reboot it still tried to D/Load the
85 and failed also another guy called Dean Dean gave me some tip's and
correct Help Siotesto go to and I did those as well but the thing's Dean Dean
suuggested were in order but I am stil gonna thank him for his time and help!
Again Engel thank you very very much you are grately appreciated Dasha

Many thanks for this question and answer. As it happens, I had the same
problem, and although CCleaner didn't resolve it, Dial-a-Fix did.
