Windows changes how it updates on Win 7 and 8

Recommended Posts

Windows 7 ,8 and 8.1 users really should read this to try and understand the big change that is coming tomorrow. It is big. It will affect you.

 

And, as it is Microsoft, it is a bit complicated so cup of coffee and start reading.... it could help you in the future.

Thank you and all the contributors to this topic enough for these links.  Very informative and helpful. 

This is the biggest mess since windows vista. 

Either give up and let microsoft handle it, with their dubious track record for reliability, or ... check almost daily to keep your computer safe and under control. 

Fwiw, I'll join group B for now.

here a problem i have too on my w8.1

 

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-update/windows-update-error-code-8024401c/f8b9dc5f-a512-4e74-b41c-d357ca40f9f7

Windows 8.1 Update Error Code 8024401C - My SIMPLE fix. Try this FIRST.

After spending hours on the internet searching forums for a simple answer that matched my level of computer skills and didn't put my computer system at risk, I decided to do a little investigative diagnostics on my own. Follow these simple steps. They just might work for you. If not, then try some of the other fixes.

Here is the error message I was getting:

 

Change your Windows Update Settings to look like this. Make sure that the "Microsoft Update" box is NOT checked:

 

After making this simple change all the updates downloaded and installed with NO PROBLEMS but if I check the "Microsoft Update" box again, the problem returns.

 

From this I would have to conclude that Microsoft Update has a problem. If a poor simple mechanic/farmer can figure this out, surely all the computer geeks at Microsoft should be able to come up with a fix or at least a better answer than the complicated "workarounds" that are currently on the various websites. Good Luck :-)

 

 

 

this is surely not the solution for this kind of updateproblem, but i have it with slow inet-connection-speed (like analog with round 5 kb/s) when i have more speed the microsoft update for windows and other microsoft produkts like ms office works fine

What Win10, back when they were giving it away for free and when it upgraded on some systems without any user interaction?

Some people have wondered why on Earth it was free, I always thought it was so people wouldn't really have a grounds to complain upon since it has the spying aspects of the OS (so essentially it isn't free per-say).

I agree but I don't think that's the central issue. 

In 2015 Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurrott had an interview with Chris Capossela of microsoft.  It is very informative.  It is still available online but it's about 1 hour and 47 minutes. I saved it as an .mp4 file.  Plays on win xp with VLC player. 

https://twit.tv/shows/windows-weekly/episodes/445?autostart=false

About 38 or 39 minutes into it, Caposella says, in effect, that the bigger their win 10 install base is the better off their phone will be.  That, I think, points to the issue that drives microsoft on this win 10 give-away-free  auto-update setup.  More customers with unstoppable telemetry means more folks to help them tune up their OS, and more data available to help them target their other" stuff". 

That has been the windows business model since its debut. Just get the product out and let your users tune it up as they go.  Lately a more objectionable imho initiative has begun.  The co-opting of hardware manufacturers.  For example,  Kaby Lake & Ryzen processors for win 10 only, HP changing firmware & not publishing drivers, etc. 

Not judging here, just sayin'. Personally, I don't want an OS that I can't control, but for many it seems to be OK.
