Did a install not an upgrade of Win7Ult over Win7 and now this. Didn't do anything out of the ordinary to cause this. So I don't think I need to start screwing with the registry or anything like that. Win update trouble shooter said all was well and no issues were present; A couple resetting windows update data store...don't know what that means, but i see this amongst other things all the time I run the Windows Update Trouble shooter. If you've used this app you'll know what I mean. Is it a matter of just waiting a day or two?? Thank you On a side note many of the OEM drivers were already there and not erased when I installed the Win7Ult. I was asked if I wanted to overwrite them. What was strange is that they weren't active until I reinstalled them....strange.

Hi allstock :)

This is a known issue on fresh installs of Windows 7. If you don't have the SP1 already, install it. If not, install the latest servicing stack below, and then install the Convenience Rollup update (can be downloaded from the Windows Update Catalog website). That should do the trick.

Servicing Stack: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3020369
Convenience Rollup: https://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=3125574

Wait...I'm confused. So I should install SP1 AND the latest service stack and Rollup? Or just the SP1. I don't have SP1 currently if that helps. Thank you Aura.

- So you did a fresh install of Win 7 ? Did that install include SP 1 ?

- This a problem LOT of computer users have. Try these instructions:

Um...which SP1 do I download. There's like twelve of them or so. I understand that I want 64bit, but that's all I know.


And what is up with the Microsoft Community forums? Every answer has to come in cryptic computer lingo trying to impress that the average user or at lest I can't understand... Why can't they just answer the question. Frustrating Grrr.

I just ended up picking this one: windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe - This application installs Sp1 to a 64-bit machine running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Hope this works

I should note that the update agent did download during the win7ult install. Whatever that is.

- Right. For the Win 7 user the troubles starts when the user has installed that Update Agent. One only has to choose between a 32 bit & 64 bit SP 1. These are the same for the different Win 7 versions (Home, Professional, Ultimate, .............. ).

- First we need to determine what kind of Win 7 you've got. Run SPECCY. Select "File", "Publish Snapshot" and post the weblink that pops up in your next reply.
