I am not very technically minded but for the last few days my computer will not configure updates, so when i log off the computer loads updates and when i log on it takes ages to configure and then says failure. :Hair:

i have changed the date to an earlier time and that did not work. dont know what else to try. is this serious, any advice welcomed. g

when you say reloaded windows, does that mean they wipe the computer clean and then load a new windows. if that is the case, i will not be able to get genuine windows 7, the computer shops put in a counterfeit one in and techno polis only sell windows if you buy a computer or a preloaded one. :Hair:

yes i think they wiped it. Im not much good with computers, sorry. You should be able to order a copy from windows direct on line. might be worth doing before it gets any worse. They do send them to bulgaria so shouldnt be too much of a problem. Then you'll be able to squash it yourself if you need to rather than having to pay a shop all the time.

The good thing with Apple Macs is all viruses are written for windows and I don't even have to bother with a virus checker on my Mac!!

I use windows 7 and I have all updates turned off, to be honest they are more trouble than they are worth

I understand very little about computers and tend to do as I'm told especially with updates! They are a pain in the neck because often they slow down my computer while its going on. How do I stop them???? Didn't know I could.

Can I just add that as far as I am concerned so long as you have a separate anti virus then you shouldn't have any problems without the updates however if you are using Windows defender with Win 7 then you will need to leave your updates to run in the way you already do?. g
