Windows update corrupting files...

Howdy All,

My friend and I just put together a new computer...

We install Win7 64-bit on it and everytime we do a Windows update it corrupts either the reg, Ntoskrnl, tcpip, ntfs.sys and on and on...

We cannot figure out why it keeps doing that... We went through and tested all the ram and the drives and such...

We updated all the drivers and bios as well...

It runs fine if I do not install the updates...

Do yall have any clue what might be going on?

Thanks for reading and your insight...

Specs:
i7-980x Intel Gulftown
Asus P6T7 WS Mobo
12 Gb Ram
2 Hard Drives ( 2 tb and a 500gb )
Asus 5850 1GB vid card
and Win7 64-bit...

why you think you have corrupted reg and these files?Probably you have blue screens with info "probably caused by <file name>" but it doesn't mean these files are corrupted.It may be issue with motherboard,PSU problem with compatbily with any driver/software/hardware.Sometimes it may also relate to registry corruption but it depends from STOP error and other informations from dump files.To say anything more we need thoroughly to analyze dump files http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

sometimes this issue may be caused by 3p security too e.g some update may interfere with soft.Please uninstall all 3p security software.

Worth also make sure you don't have any infection -that's funny but some viruses may also interfere with updates and caused BSODs .I suggest to test your OS by any good tool

After updating the bios did you set the bios to defaults before making adjustments?

If not I would do so and then press the on off button to clear the board.

ChubbyMatt,
From your post, I assume that you have experienced a blue screen of death.

The quickest way to fix your problem is to post a msg in the Crashes forum. There they will reference you to a link which shows the full info they need.

You can jumpstart some by posting a copy of your minidump file. Look in the C:\Windows\Minidump folder.

In the meantime, be sure to return the bios to its defaults and NO OVERCLOCKING! Once the problem is solved and you desire to inflict pain upon yourself then mess around with memory and clock settings.
