Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3116869). Keep getting "Failed to install on (date)". NO other updates will download, either. Everything seeps to be stuck. Get the message: "There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may work:" The update troubleshooter finds no problems. I have tried to reset the Update process per the instructions supplied by Microsoft. No results there, either. Long story short, I'm not able to get any updates.
I have a Surface Pro 2 (on the Insider Program) trying to download the "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based systems (KB3116908)" update. I keep getting the above error (0x80070570) when it tries to download. I feel like I read something about this somewhere on here, but I can't seem to find anything relative to my circumstances when I search for it. My wife is wanting this Surface Pro when I upgrade!!!
This the first time am having an issues with the update center.the rest of updates from today (Office 16) were fine.Once again when am trying to install KB3124263 - am stuck at Getting Windows ready after performing Windows update.the only way to get rid of it (after 30 min) is to press the RESET button.
Tried sfc /scannow => CBS.Log

My test computer (specs follow) is stuck at build 10586.11 I cannot install any cumulative upgrade, they all fail and Windows Update undoes any change to the system. In order to be able to install any other update I have to use the show/hide tool to hide the cumulative updates. My main computer (see my specs) and several of my friends have no problem upgrading up to 10586.36, but this particular one fails for some reason. I already tried to disable some devices in Device Manager and disable some services and startup applications, nothing worked.
Specs of my test computer that has the issue:
Computer: Custom-build server system Motherboard: Supermicro PDSG4 (Intel socket 775) Chipset: Intel Glenwood 955X (supports up to Pentium D dual-core CPU socket 775, not newer models) CPU: Intel Pentium D 945 3.40GHz dual-core socket 775 RAM: 4GB DDR2 667MHz (4x 1GB modules in dual channel mode) Graphics: XFX GeForce 7300GS SATA Controller: Intel ICH7R with RAID support SCSI Controllers: Adaptec 7901 Single channel Ultra 320 SCSI & Adaptec SCSI RAID 20105/Supermicro AOC-LPZCR supported LAN: Intel 82573V PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller Audio: Realtek AC'97 audio high quality 6-channel sound OS: Windows 10 Pro TH2 build 10586.11 32-bit English US
I have already hidden the Realtek AC'97 audio driver update which is known to cause BSOD, so this is not causing the issue.
My mouse is moving jerky after cumulative update, no matter what I use - touchpad or mouse. The only place where it's works fine - task manager. In explorer, in apps, in games it's always moving jerky.
after applying the latest cumulative updates IE11 is now broken on my system (W10 pro X-64)..Often the Main (home page) of a site works but as soon as you link to other links in the site garbled text often appears.Here's an example from BBC website. Main news page opens but link to a story and One can partly fix by pressing F12 and setting IE compatibility to IE10 or IE9.
After an cumulative update the icons of the modern applications took a square of the color of my theme and are no longer monochromatic ... And some apps do not show the name on the Live Tile as well...
I have never touched an operating system before. I need to buy an OS for my PC, but I have a few questions before doing so. Firstly, I want to buy 8.1 students as a download. Now I currently don't own a PC so I can't buy it yet. I plan to use my friends PC and download the OS. If I download the OS using his PC, will it try to install 8.1 onto his PC and override his current OS, or will the program just download without doing anything else? If it does the latter, then is it possible to just put it onto a flash drive? Or will we have no choice but to have it install 8.1 to his computer? I never thought about the OS until now.
We've written before about Windows 10's new updating policy, and today we're seeing the real-world result for the first time. The Windows 10 Technical Preview, build 9849, is being updated to build 9860. That update will roll out automatically to members of the Windows Insider program, and it will be delivered through Windows Update.The operating system upgrade is a little more heavyweight than a regular hotfix; systems will need to reboot to finish installation, and Microsoft says that the reboot will take longer than normal.
The major feature of the new build is that it contains the first iteration of Windows 10's notification center. At the moment, it's a simple collection of historic notifications. Microsoft says that future builds will add more capabilities to the notification center, such as the ability to take actions in response to notifications.First major update to Windows 10 Preview, delivered through Windows Update
Before talking about the new things, I will remind you that you are using a work in progress. As Joe said in his last post, we’re sharing things with you even though there are rough edges. This is the part of building Windows that you usually don’t get to see, since we work hard to smooth these out before it typically gets to you. There are likely many small bugs that you’ll encounter, but these are a few of the big ones that we think you should be aware of right away:
In some places the UI design has gone “backwards” temporarily while we’re working on the final experiences. For example in this build we know that it’s harder to join a Wi-Fi network. We’ll make changes to fix that later.Another example of some UI “roughness” is sometimes Internet Explorer glyphs look garbled and items on the Start menu might disappear. Not everyone will see this, it depends on your display driver. We have a fix for this one coming soon.Some machines may wake up and not go back to sleep properly.Microsoft Solitaire and Mahjong games are broken in some cases and won’t launch.When using 2 external monitors over Display Link, you may get a blue screen when you undock. This does not appear to be an issue when using just 1 external monitor. URL...The download will range between 2GB and 2.74GB depending on CPU architecture and language.Wow, that's like 2 or 3 complete Linux ISO's.
Could you Boot 2 Operating Systems at the same time on different monitors? This would practically mean 2 computers running off the same tower but is it possible? LinusTechTips posted a video about this [URL] but I don't want to run it as a server, just 2 machines not 3
I want to assign a custom icon to every file type no matter what the associated app is. I can change individual default icons, but they get overwritten by the application icon. Is it possible to do this :
And if so, how ? (I want to keep the file associations: .css and .txt are still getting open by Sublime, .ini by WordPad and so on ...)
After installing windows 10 all Internet based media is not working. BBC iplayer, Netflix both via app and browsers, YouTube takes notions, any live streaming is a pixilated green screen but again with just sound. As this is the main use of my Toshiba laptop the thing is darn useless now.
Reinstalled windows 10, updated and rolled back various drivers, Done the usual chance video to software acceleration instead of via GPU. Nothings worked and not seeing similar threads so am I alone and if so how do I go about getting a working laptop again as I no longer have option to go back to 8.1.
I am trying to set up Task Scheduler to run a .vbs script file. The script runs without a problem if I double-click on the file, but if I try to run it using Task Scheduler, a windows headed "How do you want to open this file?" appears, and Microsoft Windows Based Script Host is not listed as an option. I have performed a repair install of Windows 10, but even this did not work.
i got the windows 10 upgrade from windows update, downloaded it and installed it. went to microsoft website downloaded windows 10 to put onto a usb drive. before performing a clean install i partitioned my drive and dropped around 230gb of stuff on it (967gb total drive, partitioned 280). when i tried to format the drive i encountered this issue
"windows cannot be installed to the disk. the selected disk has an mbr partition table. on efi systems, windows can only be installed to gpt disks.".
I don't know if the problem is my hdd or my usb drive or my bios. i tried deleting the partition and then pressing new but i continue to get the same error. i tried looking around but i cant make any sense of the posts with this error being solved. one of the posts says to change usb efi to gpt in bios but i dont think that option is in my bios (i can post a picture of bios if needed). another option is to clean the entire disk with cmd but i dont want to lose the other partition.
the email offered an update to windows live mail ,so I did it and now mail will not stay open ,,, I cant even get to the email to copy its contents here ,I will have to look on my other machine to get it ... I never line the new mail app ,just because it new maybe and not use to it, I will use outlook.com instead for Microsoft mail..
I'm still not certain if the new builds that come out,( eg 10586.36, and now 10586.63) also contain all the latest Windows security updates as well? (not referring to defender updates I know they are distinct)
I've noticed that my Windows 10 PC (which had 10 installed from new, it is NOT an upgrade) has the latest build 10586.63 but I don't see any separate windows security updates coming along with them. Is having the latest build number 10586.63 mean that the OS has all the up to date security updates as well, including the .net security updates....
Bought a new PC that came with Win-8.1 and decided to jump direct to Win-10 with a clean install... no update from 8.1.
It worked fine for the first 3 weeks but within the last week when I do a Restart it goes into the "Don't turn your computer off while doing update" or something to that effect.
It restarts three times getting as far as 55% but the next time it restarts (the 4th time) message says "We couldn't complete the updates. Undoing changes". When it finishes it restarts again and finally boots correctly.
PS: If I do a Shutdown and power up again the it boots correctly... no restarts!
