When I shut down, it tells me not to shut off my computer: one important update! But when I manually go to updates it tells me no updates are available????

I thought we had done this already but no matter, I ran it again then shut down. I got the “Don’t shut down your computer, downloading important up date.” I let that run.

 

On start up I went to manual updates and none were available. Seemed I was up-to-date.

 

Restarted computer and ran manual updates a second time. All good so far...

 

Checked email etc. and shut down. Re-started. All good!!!!

 

You think it’s fixed??? I’ve been fooled before. But looks good.

 

Give me a day or two to check and I’ll confirm the outcome.

 

Thank you.

This is turning into an incredible waste of time. I have my Recover Files on stick. Or I can go back to the Original Factory Settings. Had another major crash last night. Thought the batteries had died. Nothing, not even a light, when pushing the power button.

Start by deleting SoftwareDistribution folder.

If this wont resolved the issue use WSUS Offline Update program to install all Windows 7 updates.

Your last option is repair install of Windows 7.
