    Hi guys, would appreciate some help if at all poss.

    Using Win 7 Pro SP1.

    The 'important' updates below are proving a nightmare. Installed them many times but they keep coming back.

    Generally I will install them but after rebooting they are not showing as installed when checked. I then get prompted again to install them.

    Worse ..one of these is causing my machine to need to repair itself upon restart after the 'install'.

    I have tried a few things. Downloaded the MS fixit gadget - no luck, turned off AVG and tried installing - no luck. Also tried the 'cold boot and then install' method - no luck.

    Any ideas please?

    I had the same last month working on a clients computer so I don't know if is from Microsoft have you tried windows update trouble-shooter? if yes try installing them one by one to see if it will work if that doesn't work either try changing it in windows updates from automatic update to download update but let me choose to install them, then try installing them.

    ok, finally got my machine sorted and updated with everything except KB3033929. This was the update that killed my machine last time, causing it to become unrepairable, and needing a comlete rebuild. I've made a fresh backup now, and created restore points etc ready to try and install this again. However, I've seen a couple of posts around the net saying that this update is flawed, and it may be best leaving it for now until MS have a fix. Anyone know if this still applies, or have other comments on this?

    I just read an update about this this morning. If you are dual booting Windows and linux 3033929 still causes problems.

    I dual boot 7 and XP and had no problem with it.
