Optional Update KB3000850

  1. #81


    Exactly same here. Already made a tread about it Nov. 19. 2014 Updates post update trouble. but nobody replied. This is first time something went wrong for me with updates . Because of inability to restart, system restore doesn't work either.

    Windows 8 pro x64


    i had it downloaded successfully and restarted but windows 8.1 would roll back changes after 2 attempts in installing it in 2 consecutive reboots.

    after it booted up to desktop and changes were supposedly rolled back, my asus suite 3 would not run and the asus fan service showed error messages. did couple of reboots but still shows same error, and asus suite 3 still wont run.

    i decided to reinstall it but the uninstaller will not show up, same thing when i did it on programs and features.
    i tried reinstalling it using the downloaded asus suite 3 program installer and that will not run either.

    on my way of refreshing the pc now.

    i dont know any other things this optional update affected but it certainly is a huge mess. should have learned disabling auto-update from the beginning. >_<

    Just seen this on another thread and the symptoms sounds almost the same as what I'm seeing with this update with the exception of the "pending restart" bit.

    Everything running fine till a few days ago, when all WU failed. Installed several updates manually & left with just a few that simply refuse to install; KB3008627, KB3003057, KB2976978 & KB3011780. They all seem to install fine, but during the reboot I get "Failure configuring Windows Updates", it undoes & restarts twice. Then WU says "pending restart".

    I've tried; W8.1 WU fixit, DISM restorehealth, SFC /scannow, removing Windows UEFI in the BIOS, reset permissions, full chkdsk, uninstalling all AV/MalWare software & numerous other things.

    I used Microsoft Support. They connected remotely & tried the same things. They then said they are seeing 0x800F0922 on systems where there is no "System Reserved". I installed W8.1 into an existing partition on my SSD (I realized the previous OS had a SR partition - but at the end of the drive...? So I now have 448Mb unallocated at the end of the SSD (C drive).

    MS said I needed to reinstall W8.1 - from scratch, deleting all partitions & creating new, which will then create a new SR partition. I'm not keen - since I have lots of apps, so it'll take an age.

    Is there a way to create the SR partition without reinstalling W8.1 completely? Will EasyBCD do it? If so, what options/how etc?

    I only have the 1 OS installed to C:WINDOWS. 1 Samsung 250Gb SSD. C is 238Gb; System, Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition.

    Apparently the 0x800F0922 error indicates insufficient space in the SR partition. Of course - I don't even have one.

    Thanks
    Martin
    Being one of life's constant tinkerers my system reserved partition is long gone......it's my disc space, I paid for it and Microsoft aren't having it. Maybe there was an actual reason for the system reserved partition being there after all?

    Stupid question: how are you aware of the release of such updates?

    I looked at the TechNet Security Bulletins and didn't find it there. The same with Microsoft Technical Security Notifications.
    I noticed this update by going to my Windows Update history to check KB3011780 was successfully installed.

    I thought I had the right information source but it seems not...

    Mike, did you try restoring to image backups? By restoring, did you mean this & it didn't work?

    Just confirmed it, AVAST is the culprit. Uninstalled it (using own uninstaller) and all is back to normal. !!!! One little problem WD is not showing up in Services at all. Now, age old question, which one to choose ?, I have Bitdefender on W 10 but don't like it, too automatic for my liking.

    No didn't try full restore with Macrium Reflect, wanted to find the cause of problem and found it. It's Avast !!!.
