Harv, You Should Be Installing TWO Updates For Your Comp
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / September 30, 2010 3:34 AM PDT

NET Framework 3.5.1 is preinstalled on Windows 7 and you'll want to install that as well..

The ia64 (intel architecture) update is for older 64 bit processors. Almost all current processors (AMD Athlon 64, etc.) use the x64 update..

You should be installing BOTH of the updates at the links below.. Just a note: If an update isn't supported on your computer, it won't install and an error message is displayed.



Hope this helps.

A littlle bird told me that

all these updates for all platforms were finally put onto both WU and MU this morning, although I have not had time to try that myself. I would try a scan there and let Microsoft install what it feels that you need.

by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / September 30, 2010 6:34 AM PDT

I ran Windows Updates at 8:00 AM PST this morning and it wasn't finding the NET updates yet. I just ran another WU scan at 1:00 PM PST and all the correct updates were detected.

Hope this helps.

Are you using the product?

I have not found a need for it.

On this win 7 machine I have the feature turned off.

No updates to worry about.

Winup did feed me a .net client profile which seems to be a mini version of .net.

That was months ago....I just let it sit...no updates.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
