WGA will not finish installing. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just pulled a brand new Dell PC out of the box and started it doing windows updates.  A few of the updates installed then it got to the "Windows Genuine Disadvantage" and no matter what I do, it will not finish the install so I can't finish the Windows Updates.  I even did the on-line validation:  "Start|My Documents|Help|Is this copy of Windows legal?"  This finished and it thanked me for validating my copy of Windows.  However, after a restart, I'm right back where I started, unable to do any updates and with the WGA window wanting to install (and not finish) every time I start the PC.

    The WGA installer gets stuck when it says: "Running Processes After Install."

    This same thing happened to me at home with a PC I got from Best Buy a few months ago, but at home I just turned off the Updates and decided to buy Macs from now on.  Here at work I can't do that, I need to get these updates installed before putting this PC out in the unit.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hello EricDunn,

    WGA and OGA need the task scheduler service.  Did you turn it off?

    Also, lose the proxy while doing the Update, then re-establish when done.

  • Thanks for the response.

    Task Scheduler is currently set to:  Status = Started | Startup Type = Automatic.

    As far as the proxy goes, there is no way i can by pass it.  If I turn it off I can't access Windows Updates.
