Can anyone help me I have 2 updates that keep failing.

 

1 is KB2975719 and the other is MS14-051: Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer: August 12, 2014

 

I really don't know how to fix it :(

Which error do you get, in case of 80070002 or 80070003:

 

1. Win + S and typ "cmd.exe"

2. Right click on command prompt and run as admin
3. Type "sfc /scannow" (without the ")
4. Wait until it has finished and try updating again

A lot of the engine of Internet Explorer is used by Windows and many programs. It's best to keep it up-to-date.

My Windows 7 (32-bit) devices are offering me Windows 7 SP1, which is strange as I already have SP1 installed...

It's also strange that it's only 2MB, you'd think a service pack would be bigger.

My Windows 7 (64-bit) device is not offering me Windows 7 SP1.

 I have the same update being offered. Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (KB976932)

Download size: 2.0 MB

Starting to bother me since I already have Service Pack 1 installed, and it was a LOT bigger than 2MB. First guess is a new WAT update disguised as SP1. Since SP1 cannot be uninstalled, that would force the WAT check. If that is the case, legit Windows users being forced to deal with the annoyance isn't nearly as troublesome as what this will do to people using a pirated version. Let the games begin.

I've been rolling out updates to a whole bunch of Win7 x64 machines at work today. Win7 SP1 was not offered on a single one of them.

Why only in x86 versions then? Strange behaviour, even for Microsoft.

OK, it's installed. Again. This time 2 MB. Nothing to report as yet. Silly x86 Windows. Will let the forum know if any problems develop.

Its known that I have itch for testing browsers. So latest Patch Tuesday brings more WebGL extension support and improvement as compared to Internet Explorer Developer Channel 1.

Here is the comparison picture:

Yes, if you read the KB page on the IE update, even though it is called a security update it contains more than that - including WebGL improvements.

Why not IE11?  Don't you want to stay updated?  Not going to ask why not Windows 8.  I just want to pick on the small thing.  I am using Windows 7 x54 but have IE11 on cos Visual Studio requires IE for whatever reason. :/
