    Updates Failures


    I have had Win 8 installed for approx. 3 weeks now and love it. Takes a bit of tweaking at first but worth it.

    I have currently 6 updates waiting installation and none will install.

    1. Security update for Microsoft.net framework 3.5 on Windows 8x86 (KB2739462)
    2. Sec update KB2727528
    3. Sec Update KB 2761226
    4. Update KB 2769034
    5. update KB 2769165
    6. update KB 2770917

    Can anyone help me, should I just hide them? I like to keep my Windows up to date on updates.

    My 5 day old, Windows 8 pre-installed PC, has a similar issue.
    KB2756872, KB2769165, KB976002 and KB2770917 all fail to install with the errors 800F081F and/or 8024200D.

    From what I've read elsewhere we are not alone.

    Try them one by one leaving a day gap to see whether it breaks some functions.
    I found some larger updates cover minor updates, so you won't see them(smaller updates) again.

    Thank you for the link.

    That thread is very scary. The biggest worry is Microsoft don't appear to have an answer.
    Lots of possible solutions, tried a couple without any joy so far.

    TBH my choices are, try some of the other possible fixes (I fear my knowledge isn't good enough for some), return the PC and try and find a Windows 7 desktop to this spec. or just wait until Microsoft finally sort this mess out.

    I removed firewall from Kaspersky which switched on Windows firewall and I removed that, went into updates and tried to install 1 update - negative. Tried another - negative, nothing works. Suppose we will have to wait for an update to fix the updates!!!
