      I tried installing KN 4512506 today and had some issues.  When my windows 7 ultimate 64 shut down for a restart the installation got to about 30% then system rebooted.  Had a start scan repair when it came up and when that was finshed I saw the update failed.  I also suddenly could not get on any https websites.  Did scan with my malware and bug programs, all came back ok.  Tried the normal https fixes such as dnsflush no go.  Did a system scan with glary utilities, rebooted and can now access all https websites.  VERY WEIRD.  Anyway how can I get the failed update off my list?  Do i delete the whole software distibution folder of just anything from 9/10 in that folder?

      And how can I install this update (Im very wary if it at the moment)?

      Here is a pic with error message regarding it20190910_122901

      Here are the prerequisites for installing the August updates.
      Verify that you have them installed.

      Hi amber438,

      Please see Microsoft’s KB article about KB4512506:

      https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4512506/windows-7-update-kb4512506

      About halfway down the page a list of three other updates which you must first install before installing KB4512506.

      You must first install the latest Servicing Stack update KB4490628 and then reboot.

      Then you need to install the SHA-2 Code Signing update KB4474419 and again reboot.

      Finally, you must install KB3133977 which fixes an issue for computers which are using EFI boot for Windows. Before installing KB3133977, please tell us the make and model of your computer, so that we can make sure that you will not experience any issues after installing KB3133977.

      Best regards,

        Ah good. A home-built rig. You shouldn’t have any issues installing KB3133977. Since you installed Win7 on a 1TB drive, I figure that you didn’t go through the special procedures to install Win7 to use EFI boot.

        Hi amber438,

        Yes, proceed with the updates. Yet before doing so, please create a System Restore point first.

        Note: Lately there is a weird bug with some Windows Updates. Basically, when the update asks you to reboot your computer, click on Cancel since the reboot process might hang since the update utility doesn’t properly shut down. Clicking on Cancel shuts down the update utility. This issue only occurs on some computers. Now, go to Start >> Shutdown >> Restart in order to reboot as you normally would. This simple workaround works every time, and prevents erroneous logs in Event Viewer which mention that a given update failed to install correctly, when in fact the update actually did install correctly after the computer was rebooted. Again, the issue is a simple bug which is easily worked around by using the above method.

        Please install KB4474419 (the SHA-2 code signing update) and then reboot, using the procedures in my above Note. This update must be installed by itself, without trying to install any other updates at the same time. All future updates likely will look to see if KB4474419 is installed. If it isn’t, then installing future updates most likely will fail.

        After rebooting and waiting 10 minutes, install KB3133977. This update does not contain any telemetry. Reboot after installing this update, using the procedures in my above Note. KB3133977 is designed to work around a bug. Yet installing KB3133977 on specific computers, notably and mostly some ASUS laptops, can cause issues. Fortunately your computer is a desktop which is using a Gigabyte motherboard. I am not aware of any Gigabyte motherboards which are affected by this issue, which in any case would be simple to fix in BIOS.

        After rebooting and waiting 10 minutes, you now will be good to go to install the August KB4512506 which previously caused issues. After installing KB4512506, once again reboot using the procedures in my above Note.

        On a side note, I do like the specs for your home-built computer. Nothing fancy, yet all are solidly reliable hardware choices.

        I so totally agree with you that installing Windows Updates has become a royal pain. I fondly remember the good old days (before Nadella and Sinofsky) when I never had to give much thought about installing Windows Updates in terms of whether or not the updates would mess up my computer or fail to properly install.

        I don’t know if you installed the July security only update which does contain mild telemetry. This mild telemetry is very easy to kill.

        Best regards,

      No EFI boot.  Good old cd.  I’m truly old school.  And in all the years of working on pc’s I STILL hate microsoft updates and, well, you know..:)

      Thanks for the compliment for my set up.  Stopped gaming a few years ago and it’s my older gaming system and runs like a charm.  No win 10 for me yet 🙂  althought I should build a rig to play with it.
      Yes july security only was installed.  I’ll do the updates as suggested.  Been out of the field for a while as I retired a few years ago (A+ and network engineer) and never hurts to ask for help. Would you please tell me how to shut down the telemetry for the july security only update?

      Thanks!

      ok.  got the first 2 installed fine.  KB4512506 has not appeared in my list to install as it did not go well last time and i got rid of the updates list in the software disto folder.  I downloaded it from the ms catalog.  Is it safe for me to install now?  It’s not in the installed updates on the pc either

      Would you please tell me how to shut down the telemetry for the july security only update?

      The telemetry in the July SO is fairly limited. Verify that the two tasks shown in the attached image are set to disabled. Also verify that CEIP is disabled. While the July SO enabled the two tasks, it did not change my CEIP setting from disabled to enabled.
