FYI my Win7 x64 machine rebooted, by itself, after finishing the update process. I wasn't watching the screen so I've no idea whether there was an error or another reboot was required for some reason.

I never ever ever let any updates happen automatically.

I checked for updates--manually. The updates downloaded and installed. WU asked to reboot to complete the process. I said ok. My machine rebooted and said it was completing the updates. All normal so far.

The next time I looked the PC had rebooted--by itself--after completing (or not) the updates. As I said I've no idea what occurred.

I'm doing an offline malware scan on that box right now.I'll check the logs etc once that completes.

Mine rebooted twice too because I have an encrypted HDD so I have to log in for every boot before booting up 64-bit Windows 7 HPE SP1. I got scared. I thought something broke and have to do a re(store/pair). :O Anyways, it's fine now I hope!

I did not pay attention to my 64-bit Vista HPE SP2 test PC if it did that too. I will be doing more updates for another 64-bit W7 and 64-bit W8.

Sure. I posted as a warning to others.

I don't see any update in the other thread

Microsoft Security Bulletin(s) for June 10, 2014

that would require or cause a second reboot.

So far I've updated four Win 7 machines and ALL have rebooted twice after installing the updates.

Yeah, I've never seen a double reboot like that either.

Well MS has pushed out some buggy updates over the last year or so. I was worried that they'd "done it again". It seems, for whatever reason, that the 2nd reboot is normal.

Now my stomach is back in it's normal place

I updated my fifth windows 7 computer and after the first reboot, it got to configuring updates 35% and rebooted.....so a total of two reboots on this one too.

Hmmm, that doesn't sound right. If there's an issue I guess I'm not the only one seeing it.

All five that had the double reboot were Win 7 64. Just ran win update on Win 7 32 and it did NOT do a double reboot.

Edit: Note, that all five that had the double reboot are running fine and don't appear to have any issues.

Interesting time...

Having done a lot of work on a WfW 3.11/Win95A box recently I'm used to constant and unexplained reboots. I'd forgotten how good I am at pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del I thought those days were over---but perhaps not.

I don't see anything untoward in the Event Logs. In WindowsUpdate.log I see this


These seem significant.

(At the end of the download/install process)

quote:
2014-06-10 11:22:16:617 1072 1a18 Agent * WARNING: Exit code = 0x8024000B

(Before the 2nd reboot)
quote:
2014-06-10 11:34:37:034 620 c40 Service ** END ** Service: Service exit [Exit code = 0x240001]

There's nothing of interest in the "View Update History" nor are there any updates still to install.

My 32-bit Win7 did do a double-reboot. It hit 100% on the first reboot, then did a shutdown and reboot.

Also, I noticed that KB2952664 update appeared again, even though I have been trying to keep it hidden.

I've no idea if this is normal, a bug, or what. My Win7 x64 system appears to be working normally and as I posted above I can't see anything obvious that anything is amiss.

Perhaps Microsoft will post something about it--in a week or a month.

PS: Error message when you try to install updates from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update Web site: "0x8024000B" as I found in the WindowsUpdate.log file.

I realised that KB2952664 was installed (like you, I had hidden this patch previously) after my firewall popping up outbound access for the 2 executable files. Blocked and then deleted the patch from my system. MS should really place this patch as optional, instead of important.

I had another weird glitch, this time on my work computer (32-bit Win7 Pro). 6 of the updates, mainly the IE10 and Win7 updates, failed on the first try. Updates for Office 2010, VS2005, and the malicious software thing did install. After a reboot, I tried again, and this time they installed.

Edit: It was error 0x80070308 on all of them that first time.
