This is one of the silently prepairing you PC for W10.
Apparantly it "talks" to MS about your system specs.
There have been a number of issues with it, and Noel in W7 updates and activations is also looking at.
turning off services
There are a no of places you can turn services off, so that programmes can be removed, as long as you know its name.
ControlPanel>admintools>Services>progname>RIGHTclick>properties>startuptype>from dropdown>dissable or manual.
services turned off
I've turned of a few services including windows experience and the help function, problem report settings is set to ask, wonder if either of these or maybe other MS support services are required for this update to install.
co processor drivers
The driver you require is on your comp.
Go to device Mananger> select processor,(the error marked 1)>Update driver>
LET ME CHOOSE > (untick compatible drivers) select CHIPSET and away you go
had this on 7 and eight, posted about this before. normal MS or google search will...
seems logical to me that comp wont sleep with this app open.
Its an "always on" type app, as the radio signal is always broadcasting, and therfore being picked up by your comp .
one of svchost services is over-riding the sleep mode, because of the above.
just a little tip to get you to 8.1 a bit quicker after a factory restore back to W8.
You do not need the Net framework updates/browser choice or malicious software removal tools KBxxxxx's,
about 25 approx.
since i updated, but not on initial release and have since removed the 4 problematic KB's,
according to the attached screenshot, (date has been checked)
my lappy has not shutdown,
nor am i connected and hence my basic network connection shows as unknown
According to that error log the 1st install has not been completed because a reboot is required,
have you actually rebooted??, the other errors state cannot install due to previous install waiting to complete.
Most of the MS generic drivers are dated 2006, what an upto date system, no worries there,
unless thiers a little black down arrow on one
pop over to the BSOD sub forum and read the what to do to get help sticky for, hopefully not BSOD.
8 or 8.1
if your running 8 upgrade to 8.1 via the store, this has fixed numerous problems.
in your case id also check the asus site for thier own updates, had 4 on my <1yr old lappy including a bios update.
please check your power settings,
1 of the things i noticed that changed after this months patch tuesday updates was the re-introduction of the hibernation feature, even thou i had previously deleted it.
