Quick thing I need too tell you, my computer won't update, look.

Could this be causing it?

Possibly. Let's see what happens in the system restore, though. We may be able to fix both.

You have backups? Do you have a WindowsImageBackup stored on your external drive where you are backing up your data?

I cannot believe no one asked you before. Alright, what you need to do is go into backup and restore and Create a system repair disc (it's in the list on the left when you open up backup and restore)

To get to backup and restore: Start Menu->Control Panel->Under System and Security->Backup Your Computer

Edit: You need a DVD or CD to burn the repair disc to.

Oh dear me, might just be more easy to take down to Principle and get them to fix it...

It is actually pretty easy. You don't need the repair disc afterall

Connect your external drive with the backups on it. Go into backup and restore (Start Menu->Control Panel->Under System and Security select Backup your computer) Select recover system settings or your computer.
