When it tells you to "free up system resources" you'll usually want to start by checking how much space you have left on your hard drive.

Try CCleaner (see my signature for the link) and remove some unnecessary items, but be careful what you get rid of! If you have any questions, post them and someone can help you decide.

Then, try removing some programs you don't use.

After that, try stopping some programs from running when Windows starts.

You're welcome. :tazz:
Would you please post back with what Microsoft says? I'm sure other users would appreciate it.

I've never heard of that error message on windows updates--is that exact message? Is this during autoupdate? Manual?

I agree with PI, how much FREE SPACE do you have
