Win update

by saltcreek / August 11, 2005 12:27 PM PDT


When I got this PC, it was set up to receive auto updates, & I left the settings as they were. A few days ago I went to the update sight, it said I needed to upgrade some components to continue to receive updates. I have tried 5 times to download these componets with no success. Each time I get the message...updates were unable to be successfully installed......The download it says I need is called..."windows genuine advantage validation tool (KB892130)"

I checked my download history, & all updates since 6/17 have failed.

I guess I need some help. I have tried their help site, but have not found what I need to solve this problem.

Thanks, Charles

Thank you, my system did indeed need to be validated, but again my first try at updating failed. I "Googled" the error code, found a site where many others had the same problem, & it was resolved by adding the following to start/run...

regsvr32 oleanut.dll
" jscript.dll
" vbscript.dll
" msxml.dll
" softpub.dll
" wintrust.dll
" initpki.dll
" cryptdig.dll

Thanks to both of you for your help.

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?
