Hi...first time poster but many times visitor. Great place to research out problems. Today I decided to post my first question.

 

For weeks when I did sfc /scannow I got corrupted files and much research and effort I could not fix. I suspected that windows update was causing the issues. Finally I just did a Repair Install and installed window updates 3 or 4 at a time until I updated them all. After each update I would do a sfc /scannow to make sure no issues.

 

I have 3 updates not installed  and have questions (see image attached -- updated.png) -- I'm not concern about Kb3022345 so won't be asking about it.

Also I have windows 7 sp1 (see image attached -- servicePack1.png) already installed on my computer (sp1 came installed with the computer and my windows installation disk has sp1 on it)

 

First question -- why is windows asking me to update SP1 when I already have it installed? Am I missing something? Confusing.

Second question -- from the research I have done, to get the IE10 update installed you have to install SP1 as a prerequisite. But I already have SP1 installed but every time I try to install the IE10 update it fails. Am I doing something wrong.

Third question -- I thought about just ignoring these updates. Especially since I have SP1 installed and never use IE, but most of my virus issues somehow attach to IE.

I need to make sure it is safe to ignore the update. Also it is bugging the hell out of me that I can't update IE.

SP1 (it came installed with my computer and sp1 is on the installation disk that came with the computer) is already installed on my computer so it is confusing why windows update is asking me to install again. Or is this an update to the SP1 I have installed? Confusing.


That's it. Hopefully I can get some help. Windows is a real pain or at least it has been lately.

Thanks

.

Open the Control Panel and click on Programs and Features.

 

When it opens you will see View installed updates, click on this an see if this update is seen there.

 

The KB3022345 update is causing corrupt files.  But there is a work around for this if you wish to install it.

Thanks for the reply. I guess my question was not clear. I know how to view instsalled updates, history, etc.

 

Basically my questions were

 

1) Why is windows update asking me to install sp1 when it is already installed on my computer (see attachment above servicePack1.png)

 

2) I can't get the IE10 update to install. Every time I do it fails. One of the prerequisites to installing the IE10 update, is to have sp1 installed. I already have sp1 installed so not sure why I can't install the IE10 update. UNLESS -- the sp1 update is to fix the original sp1. It is not clear.

 

Thanks

I didn't misunderstand what you had posted.  I want to know if you had looked in the updates to see if that update was listed.  

 

You should read this Microsoft Support article.

How did you installed Windows Service Pack one. Windows Update or manual download? 

 

You can re-check the Windows Update to see if that get remove due to SP1 already been installed

Thanks anyways, but i read that article.............didn't help..............I guess we are not on the same page.........It is llsted, but that isn't the question. Feels like we will go in circles so I will say thanks and move on

 

FOR coxchris -- when I bought the computer SP 1 was already installed. Even the installation CD that came with the computer has SP1 on it.
