Windows 7: HELP for Newbie

HELP for Newbie

Yesterday, I installed Windows 7 on my computer (I was previously running Vista). Windows Update informed me that I had 39 to load. I said ok and pressed the button. However, when it got to 89% loaded it froze! I've tried installing the updates again but nothing happens. Any help here would be appreciated.

Do not install all updates at once.Try install updates i.e five at time.

Hi! Tried that...no luck. I am at this moment running the MS Update Standalone Package that is supposed to cure this problem. It's been running for 10 minutes now looking for updates !

In aggresive mode, it ran halfway and then the following appeared:

Service 'Windows Update'(WUAUSERV) could not be stopped. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to stop system services.

Still the same, I'm afraid. Deleted 3P products, loaded the Reg fix and tried to download 1 update......nothing. Mind you, I've got the update icon showing saying 89% downloaded, again.

1.Check data & time both in OS and in BIOS.
2.Run cmd.exe with elevated previlliges (right click on cmd.exe as admin)

and type:

sfc /scannow

if nothing help:

Download & run VistaSysInfoTool http://www.vistax64.com/attachments/...ms-sysinfo.exe (select all in this) and make log

Additonally find in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder CBS.log file -both log from VistaSysInfo and CBS.log attache to post.


EDIT

This solutions is applicable for 2000/XP not for newest systems.Original permissions in Vista/Windows 7 are much more subtle and doing it it will be really permissions violation in the system and it may help only if you have Wu error 8007005.I know for mostly persons with Vista/Win 7 which tried this atom bomb on your system it didn't help.

Why are you asking about this method?Do you have error code 8007005?
