Repeatedly (daily)when trying to install update is not connecting to server

every time i restart my computer and connect to firefox, it "strongly recommends " that I install the latest update which I click ok to. When it tries to do it, it keeps running in the background with a screen and across the top it says connecting to server but it never does. I am having no other computer problems so I have no idea why this is happening. It has permission and it would keep spinning a little blue circle for hours without ever saying it cannot connect but it obviously can't. how can i either stop this or actually update. It is very annoying. I have tried to update manually and I get the same result. Thanks, Clair47

I understand that you are trying to perform an update on your iMac and are prompted to enter your administrator password. When you enter your password; however, it is not accepted. In this case, you may want to consider changing your password for that user account. To complete this process, please refer to the attached article.

    when trying to install update 10.5 it says the download has invalid signature and won't install. I run XP

    I'm having similar problems with 10.5. I managed to install it but when I try to run itunes it doesn't open correctly and when I view my account the screen is not presented in the correct format. When I try to search for music it finds nothing. So I ran the diagnostics option but this came back with an error ' secure link to itunes failed'. It also said that the internet connection was verified but when I went into the help option it said I wasn't connected to the internet but as you can see I was and am. I've now uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times, each time I uninstall I've followed the correct sequence as recommended:-
    1. Itunes
    2. Quicktime
    3. Apple software update
    4. Apple mobile device support
    5. Bonjour
    6. Apple application support
    I've noticed now that 'quicktime' didn't get reinstalled, not sure if that's the problem. Also when I rebooted after the last Uninstall I received a new error message ' Applesyncnotifier.exe - unable to locate component'. I've also noticed that my CPU is running at 50% according to task manager when I've got apple loaded, but it goes down to less than 20% when it's uninstalled and even goes down to 0%. Clearly, there are a number of people with similar issues and Apple need to sort it quickly.

    It appears Apple’s download servers are ‘overwhelmed’ today.  I couldn’t download the newest iTunes update or IOS 7 and there are a lot of discussions today about not being able to download. One poster said they had chatted with App Store support who confirmed the problem.

  • Receive the message "unable to connect to itunes store" when trying to install updates for my apps

    trying to install updates available for a number of app on my phon and keep getting the same message "unable to connect to itunes store"............

    A possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
    Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

  • My iPhone 5 went to recovery mode when trying to install update 6.1.4

    A couple of hours ago, I got a prompt on my iPhone 5 to install update 6.1.4 over wifi (for the speakers). I turned on wifi in phone settings and clicked install and saw a tiny message saying 'Verifying, ..'
    The next thing I saw was a symbol for connecting iphone usb to iTunes. When I did, Itunes said that my phone was in recovery mode and needed to be restored. Trusting that Apple would know what it is doing, I clicked okay, but stopped short of actually resoring when itunes warned me that my data would be lost and phone will be restored to factory settings. Data is everything!!!
    I have important family pictures that haven't been backed up and I don't want to lose them. What do I do? It would have been so much better had Apple update warned me to backup before starting update. iPhone does not even turn on now. Help please!!! Very disappointed in Apple. Their own updates should not crash their own devices, and without any warning of data loss whatsoever.
    Apple has become a big bully!!!
    Please Help..

    firstly dont panic my friend..  if your phone is not turning ON, try a hard reset
    Press and Hold down the Lock button [wch is on top] and the Home button...hold both of em together for 10 secs or till the time you see tghe apple logo
    once you see the apple logo release the keys the phone will come back to life
    if you find the the handset is in recovery mode you have no other option but to restore the device. Sorry but tht is the only thing you can do.  good luck

  • Update will not connect to server, continuous lagging and questionable security?

    I actually have a few questions. I recently switched to Firefox from IE9 for a few reasons. My IT Security professor mentioned Firefox was safer than most and an online article suggested it was faster than IE9. So I decided to give it a chance; the previous version was too slow and wouldn't play any video so I downloaded version 4. It worked great for about 3-4 weeks and now I'm having the following problems:
    1. Every time Firefox says it has to update, the window pops up to connect to server. All it does is continuously try to connect (nothing happens). Now, one time I left it open all day to see if it would and that night a window popped up and said to restart Firefox to complete. I did what it said and it just started trying to connect to the server again.
    2. When I first downloaded Firefox 4 it was fast and almost never lagged. Now, it seems as if every page I try to connect to lags. In fact, sometimes I have to close it down and restart. It's actually normal pages I open everyday like school, mail, weather and typical Yahoo pages. Nothing has changed on my end, so I'm unaware of why this is happening now.
    3. I'm really concerned with the security issues. I still have IE9; recently, because of lagging and security issues, I've tried switching between the two to check cleaning details. I'll run my cleaner after a day of IE9 and do the same for Firefox (same typical searches). With IE9, there's not much to clean, maybe 17-18 mb's at most (cookies, typical stuff) and never had a virus. The CPU monitor also stays calm. On Firefox, I get 160-210 mb's every time. The CPU gauge fluctuates constantly and I've had three viruses.
    I'm not sure if it's because the updates will not take or what, but I've had to switch back to IE9 because of these problems. I really enjoyed Firefox (when it worked); the interface was easy to navigate and use and in the beginning was very fast. I miss it! But because of these issues, I have to take a break until they are fixed. I can't afford to have my computer crash. Please help!

    If there are problems with updating then best is to download the full version and uninstall the currently installed version.
    Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.
    * Firefox 4.0.x:
    * Uninstall your current Firefox version.
    * Do not remove personal data when you uninstall the current version.
    Remove the Firefox program folder before installing that newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.
    * It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
    Your bookmarks and other profile data are stored elsewhere in the [ Firefox Profile Folder] and won't be affected by a reinstall, but make sure that you do not select to remove personal data if you uninstall Firefox.

  • Error 0x8007F0F4 when trying to install update KB2686509

    I have tried several times to install the recent security update KB2686509. Each time it fails with error 0x8007F0F4. Fixes that other people have reported online have not worked for me. For example, there is no file on my system called "faultykeyboard.log".
    I also do not have a registry key named "Scancode Map" that I can delete. Any advice would be appreciated.
    Richard Koett.

    Hi Richard (and anyone else here!!),I run the WSUS server at a school of only around 700 computers. Some Win 7, some XPSP3.
    ALL of the Win XP computers would not install this update.
    As mentioned below, this was to do with a keyboard mapping problem...I.E. some keys disabled, such as the Windows Key.
    I eventually found that removing the registry entry for the mapping, installing the update and then putting the reg back worked.
    I have included here a .bat file script which will install the KB for you (assuming you fix the file paths within it of course :)
    First script:
    @echo off
    echo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    echo !!! DO NOT CLOSE THIS WINDOW !!!
    echo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    set KeyPath=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout
    set RegFile1=%SystemRoot%\%COMPUTERNAME%-HKLM_KBLayout
    set RegFile2=%RegFile1%s.reg
    set RegFile1=%RegFile1%.reg
    if exist "%RegFile1%" goto save2
    regedit /e "%RegFile1%" "%KeyPath%"
    if exist "%RegFile1%" goto save2
    if exist "./missing.reg" goto errBackup
    echo Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 >.\missing.reg
    echo. >>.\missing.reg
    echo [%KeyPath%] >>.\missing.reg
    regedit /S ".\missing.reg"
    goto save1
    if exist "./missing.reg" del /q .\missing.reg
    if exist "%RegFile2%" goto createDel
    regedit /e "%RegFile2%" "%KeyPath%s"
    if exist "%RegFile2%" goto createDel
    if exist "./missing.reg" goto errBackup
    echo Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 >.\missing.reg
    echo. >>.\missing.reg
    echo [%KeyPath%s] >>.\missing.reg
    regedit /S ".\missing.reg"
    goto save2
    if exist "./missing.reg" del /q .\missing.reg
    echo Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 >.\delreg.reg
    echo. >>.\delreg.reg
    echo [-%KeyPath%] >>.\delreg.reg

    echo [%KeyPath%s] >>.\delreg.reg
    echo. >>.\delreg.reg
    regedit /S ".\delreg.reg"
    del .\delreg.reg >nul
    echo %KeyPath%
    echo was saved to %RegFile1% and cleaned
    echo %KeyPath%s
    echo was saved to %RegFile2% and cleaned
    echo Update is installing, please wait...
    rem This is where you need to change the file path to
    rem pick up the other bat file to install the KB
    start /wait "" "\\4423-DC03\msi\WSUS\install.exe" /quiet /passive /norestart
    regedit /s "%RegFile1%"
    regedit /s "%RegFile2%"
    echo %KeyPath% restored
    echo %KeyPath%s restored
    echo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    echo !!! REBOOT YOUR SYSTEM NOW !!!
    echo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    set RegFile2=
    set RegFile1=
    set KeyPath=
    shutdown -r -t 60 -c "Rebooting following Windows Update Manual Installation. Save any work left open now!" -f
    I downloaded the KB file from: and called it "install.exe", and it uses the following commands for silent install: "
    /quiet /passive /norestart
    The changes I made to it force the PC to reboot after install (I chose norestart before because the script needs to put the reg keys back in before anything else). Once it has restarted, WSUS should pick it up as being installed.
    Hope this helps, and makes sense!!!! :)
    I want to say I did NOT create this script in the first place, but I have modified it to make it my own and do what I like it to do. Origin:
    Hotfix batch for KB2686509 - V. 1.24

  • Rejects my valid original Serial Number when trying to install update

    I have Logic Pro 8.0.2 installed with a valid serial number. Now I am upgrading to Logic Pro 9 and when I enter the new serial number it asks for the original. That's good - it means that the new serial number is accurate and wanting my original to verify my copy. When I enter the original, it always comes back as an invalid serial number. I have verified it is correct with others' eyes and reading it back etc - no go. My original is an Academic version - does that mean anything? But even so where do I go for help? I don't seem to see anything at the Apple website to direct me for help other than this discussion forum.
    Where do I go for help getting this resolved short of taking my 24" iMac into an Apple store with my serial numbers in hand? TIA

    My understanding is that 'Academic' versions cannot be upgraded. You may need to purchase the full version. I suggest a quick phonecall to the Applestore to verify.
