  1. So update: I reloaded Windows 10 from the Cloud download and did all the updates including that dreaded KB5013942(cumulative update). So I never figured it out so the two hours that I spent on getting everything new again worked. Thanks for trying.
  2. Ya know that Windows Update is not a true science. For another example that when I turn on my Windows 11 laptop, different than the computer above, and go check for updates it says: "Updated a minute ago". I then click on "check for updates" any ways and it says "You're up to date" I check on "check for updates" again and it does an update. Today it was a .net update that it did, even though the Windows 11 claim to be up to date. So does Windows lie about the update or that it is so stupid that it does not know if it is updated?
  3. I just tried 5015020 -------- couldn't complete--------undoing changes with this update. So that didn't work.
  4. I don't see any KB5013952 updates at all but I did get other CU for 21H2. It doesn't get stuck, it does download and ask me for a restart every time and then it rolls back on the restart. Right now it is downloading it right as we speak with a Defender update. I haven't got a driver update since 2021 either.
  5. Not I don't think so as I don't see it in my history but I did get this one beforehand: KB5013624
  6. KB5013942(cumulative update) starts to download and then install then ask for a restart as normal. Then on the restart I get a msg saying "We couldn't complete the updates" and it rolls back and does a clean up and goes back to my desktop via restart. Then it starts to download again. Now this happen 5 times already on this Quad-core Acer with 12 GB ram, 1 TB drive version 21H2, Win 10 Home 64 Bit. Installed from Media Creators Tool 5 months ago. So I ignore it and then I get the restart message again and again and again. Everything else is up to date. Did a Superantispyware scan, Windows Security scan, Dism restore health, Sfc /scannow and still getting the same thing which is the update, the restart and then the fail message. Went to Microsoft catalog and did it separately and still getting the same thing over and over. Image attached.
  7. Anyhow, uninstalled them and turned off updates for other M$ products. So that's it. I am done with them. My laptop has a smaller hard drive and don't want to fill it up with unwanted updates that have to be scanned for viruses, defragged, may have issues and may kill my nice running PC.
  8. So maybe I should go buy a boat just in case I ever need to use one then I will have one parked in my driveway. Maybe a hang glider too. Ya never know when you want to go jump off a cliff. Anyhow I don't understand your thinking but there's a lot of things I don't understand about life like people that follow politics. We won't go there though. Anyhow thanks.
  9. So when the Updates come in for Office I was looking at them the other day and it put about 12 updates onto my computer so I don't know what you mean by they will not update Office '07. They just keep loading them on. Do you think I want to take time out of my day to uninstall 12 updates. No I don't. To me it's more things to go wrong. I rarely even use Word. On this computer I'm talking about I don't even have any Word documents on it at all. Do you think I need Access, PowerPoint, Publisher, etc. updates? I just think it's wrong and I wish someone over there at M$ would update their whole idea on how to proceed with this update program.
  10. So I did uninstall everything but Word and I did an update again and again it started to download Junk Mail fixes for Outlook and other stuff that I do not use. So I just went into Update settings and shut off Received updates for other Microsoft products when you update Windows. Shut that bugger right off! Then did an update and they did not come in. What a hassle! Ok, I want to see you put some more ram into that computer of yours too! I remember back in the XP days when someone I met had a map program on his computer and he told me he had a gig of memory on his computer. I thought that was something. 1 GB, wow! What a machine! I have just put and extra 4 GB stick into my 8 GB computer for 12 Gigs now, yes, righteeo says Felix the katt. I just have bags and bags of memory in my drawer. I may of well use it huh?
  11. Yeah, just got the updates on as usual. I take them all. So what I did is to uninstall the ones from Office I did not want. But only a tech would do that. Tell me, when you gonna get a haircut? And why are you triple booting your computer.
  12. Can I drop off my old non-running pickup at your front door?
  13. So maybe we should run over to Microsoft and dump off our dirty underwear just in case they may need a rag or two to clean something. I got some tools in my garage that maybe I can dump off on their doorstop as well. My neighbor has a broken down car that has been sitting there for years. Maybe we should tow it over to Microsoft's parking lot and leave it for them just in case they could use something like that. Microsoft, are you listening?
  14. I am using Office 2007. Yes I can go to Office in Programs in Control panel and remove items I don't want. Anyhow still doesn't answer my question about why I am getting all those updates that I don't have. Can't Updates look at the system and see what I have? Other downloads can look at your system and tell if you have 64 bit and what version of Windows you have so why can't Microsoft Updates be more exact to what my system has on it? Stupid! I don't know if this is a mistake in their system or they are control freaks that think they know what I need. Or don't need but they want to put their footprint on my computer even deeper. Fools!
