  1. I am not able to update or download the driver from the device manager section, it shows "searching online for software".
    So my question is will your solution solve this as well?

  2. I tried to find my comment I posted 30 minutes ago in order to edit it, but I didn't find it (thanks YouTube Sort!) Anyway, what I wanted to add was that I've now seen all the links you provided in your comment section beneath the video. I had simply failed to click More.

  3. The link to kb3102810 did not work anymore. And in the update catalog it does not exist.

    Should I try without it or was it renamed?

  4. its nuts that this isnt a 1 minute video and a two step move, microsoft why does it take 5 – 10 minutes just to display recently installed updated. what the hay?

  5. follow the video step by step but when installing the first file (Windows6.1-KB3135445-x64) we show a utility saying
    (the update is not applicable to your computer) . Note that the Windows system 8.1 pro And the device microsoft surface pro 3
    Please Help

  6. EDIT: apparently just restarting my computer started the program over again and it fixed itself it seems, This might of finally fixed my entire issue with updating hopefully.

    Ok so I recently did a full reset on my windows 8 computer (that was 8.1) and then after reset immediately updated to windows 8.1 but now, it only has the two lastest I am assuming KB updates.
    when I checked for updates it got stuck on a loop of checking,
    I DID what you recommend for the troubleshooter, it fixed two issues but the update loop still happened. Now I am following this Offline WSU thing, and it gets stuck installing after checking the framework states at

    what do I do oh mighty computer Guru?

    yes this is an old video but it seems relevant to my current computer issue. I have tried so many things already.

  7. Thank you so very much! There are now 177 important updates installing on my computer. Been trying for 2 months after my last reformat. I'm running 64 bit windows 8.1, followed step by step and at first I didn't think it worked because the updates didn't populate like they did on your video. Looked away for a bit and low and behold there they were!! You're the best!

  8. I have tried fixing this for a few days now after a new install, most of the fixes from forums don't give clear details like this video. I was about to give up and install windows 10 which i don't like much….It worked, Thanks a million for this video!

  9. It worked for me! Thank you soooooo much! Step 10 WSUS is what worked for me, it took 2 hours to fully install but it was worth it.
    The other steps in 6 where we had to install things never installed so I had to skip it and continue. Thanks for making videos for us, I hope you’re rewarded with good karma!

  10. my windows 8.1 keeps searching for updatesand my cpu is at 100% werid because im using retail 8.1 i NEVER HAD THIS WITH PREACTIVATED WINDOWS LIKE WHAT THE FUCK LOL
