  • Beware Of Latest Windows 7 Updates

    For whatever reason, I could not burn a DVD last night. Tried everything. Specifically, the encoding process would not initialize. Then I rolled back Windows to my last known successful burn - back in May of this year. Instant success!!

    So beware of the last few updates to Windows 7.

    No problems here with burning DVD's with the latest Windows updates installed

      Spent a couple of hours yesterday getting a friends PC back to running consistently. It was set to auto update and got itself in a loop of installing updates then not completing, uninstalling and then starting all over again. Ended up having to do a full restore as he is a senior and only uses to play games and look at some newspapers so no real problem to reinstall things. Was an ACER PC he only got a couple of years ago and was running WIN8.1 . I expect it was originally WIN8 and the update was to 8.1 in preparation for WIN10 !! I have now turned off updates for him !! Using restore resulted in a clean load of WIN8.1 works fine so not sure what the problem was.

        The Win 8.1 update came out over a year ago, so unless he never let it update in that time then I doubt it was that.
        The Win 10 update doesn't need your Win 8 to be updated to Win 8.1 first. It will install Win 10 then hook in all the necessary registry entries etc to keep you installed programs and hardware going in Win 10. It then removes the Win 7/8/8.1 installation
        Also not sure what an update to Windows 8 has to do with DVD recording in Edius under Win 7

          It was the fact that there was a set of updates last week that caused the problem that prompted my response. Clearly affected the hardware in my friends PC so why not a DVD recorder ? Yes it problably had updated early as you suggested but this last update was not nice to it !!

            I suspect it was more likely that he already had some corrupt files and the update just highlighted the problem

              Just for your information:

              When updated my system 7/64 with the last win-updates I included also one optional update. Result:
              When restarting the PC I got a black screen.
              Could solve that problem only by restoring my system with the last system-image.

                I had that black screen with the mouse pointer sitting in there looking lonely with no desktop GUI as well and had to restore to 17th July.


                Also had VST Plugins on Edius WG8 not working, and GV Browser would not launch, fixed with restore which crashed.

                Then had to repair Win7.

                Found in registry logon key value with UserGUI.exe with a comma after it and removed the comma.

                I had blamed the GPU test program FurMark putting DirectX on but I am not convinced it wasn't a Windows update.

                  I'm building and installing systems every day and don't see any of this with all of the latest Windows updates installed

                    Yes I understand but you are building clean systems rather than systems that have been used for several years with all sorts of updates that may not have completed correctly either. A valid reason for a clean build. In my friends case he only had a few games and his mail program ( that he never used as his wife always used the mail program on her machine ) so not big deal to re install. However some people have a lot of software loaded with registrations etc etc and a re install is a sizable task.

                    I too cannot recall having a problem when I make a new PC with a clean build.

                        I'm also doing repairs to old systems as well as upgrades to old systems, all of which I update before sending out and still not seeing any of these problems. Some of my more recent repairs/upgrades didn't even have SP1 on them

                          You are very lucky then as the looping update issue is reported on several sites as I just did a quick search before I went to see him to fix his PC.

                            Actually I would say it's the other way round, he was unlucky. You have to bear in mind that the number posting on forums having an issue is tiny compared to the actual number of people doing the updates and having no issues.

                              Maybe because most users have windows update disabled and do it manually or not at all.

                              Maybe all the old Edius versions still being used while updates are free should be a good indication of how up to date systems really are.

                              Many users still have the old (wise) thinking of if it ain't broke don't fix it :)
