Windows 7: I Installed Windows Updates KB980182 KB915597

Windows 7 is a popular operating system that was released by Microsoft in 2009. It offers many features and improvements over its predecessor, Windows Vista. However, like any software, Windows 7 also needs to be updated regularly to fix security issues and bugs, and to enhance its performance and compatibility. In this article, we will discuss two important updates that Windows 7 users should install: KB980182 and KB915597.

What is KB980182?

KB980182 is a cumulative security update for Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) for Windows 7. It was released on March 30, 2010 as part of the monthly Patch Tuesday. It addresses several vulnerabilities that could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code, spoof user interface elements, bypass security features, or cause denial-of-service attacks by exploiting flaws in IE8's handling of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, VBScript, ActiveX controls, and other components. Some of the vulnerabilities were publicly disclosed before the release of the update, making them more likely to be exploited by malicious hackers. Therefore, it is highly recommended that Windows 7 users who use IE8 install this update as soon as possible to protect their systems and data.

What is KB915597?

KB915597 is a definition update for Windows Defender, the built-in anti-malware program in Windows 7. It was released on March 29, 2010 and contains the latest signatures and detection logic to identify and remove various types of malware, such as viruses, spyware, adware, rootkits, worms, trojans, and ransomware. Windows Defender automatically downloads and installs definition updates through Windows Update to keep itself up-to-date. However, sometimes the updates may fail to install due to various reasons, such as network issues, corrupted files, or conflicting software. In such cases, users can manually download and install the updates from the Microsoft website. Alternatively, users can also use a different anti-malware product that may disable Windows Defender to avoid conflicts.

How to install KB980182 and KB915597?

The easiest way to install KB980182 and KB915597 is to use Windows Update, which automatically checks for available updates and installs them in the background. To access Windows Update, users can follow these steps:

  • Select Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update.

  • Select Check for updates. If any updates are available, they will be downloaded and installed automatically.

  • Restart the computer if prompted.

If users encounter any problems with Windows Update, they can try some troubleshooting steps, such as running the Windows Update troubleshooter, resetting the Windows Update components, or performing a clean boot.


In this article, we have explained what KB980182 and KB915597 are and why they are important for Windows 7 users. We have also provided some instructions on how to install them using Windows Update or manually. By installing these updates, users can ensure that their systems are secure and stable. For more information about Windows 7 updates, users can visit the Microsoft website or contact Microsoft support.
