Vista Updates @ 14/02/08 RE KB938371

  peter99co 15:55 15 Feb 2008

I have restored to 09/01/08 (the last batch of Windows downloads and checked via control panel/programs/show windows updates and all the programs re 14/02/08 do not now show as. I have turned off Auto Update and changed to' Let me Know and Choose which updates to install'.If I ask for Installation history I see the 14/02/08 list.Will It work and will I receive another download. Or do I have to CLEAR the history?
What Next? Any Help?

(from Internet Explorer) Tools>Windows Update, and try it from there....It should inform you of available updates, and ask if you wish to install them.

Thanks for reply and if I go for this I will post result. If I wait a little longer will It tell me anyway or does the system think I have been updated?

Check each time you go online....If you are wireless it checks anyway...Go to control panel, and windows update, and check your update history, you can view your installed updates from there.

I would force it to check again to be sure.

Mine went in this order

533 first to go in
026 last to go in

They went in without drama.

Sorry 830 went in before 371.

I then did a restart and another manual update and it revealed 287

I take it that I untick and then install One at a time? Does the Download have be run between each update? If i right click I can Hide each should I do that. Sorry to be so Pedantic but this is a right pain.

  anskyber 17:33 15 Feb 2008

If you right click and hide they will "disappear" but reappear as you ask to reveal again say one at a time.

  peter99co 17:48 15 Feb 2008

I will go one at a time.You found 287 afterwards but this is not in my list. You must have software i do not have? I will hide rest and select. The 055,026 and 456 are all security updates so could be installed as a group? I dread going for KB938371 Somewhere during the first go at this lot a number of restore points must have occurred. When I did the system restore I had 3 restore points showing during the 15/20 minute sequence of installation of the updates. I have taken the earliest to get where i am now.

287 is another Vista prep install for future updates. click here

Mine did not come down until the others were installed.
