Windows won't update

Have tried some of the other remedies and the damn thing will still not run.

The history shows that has been updates but I am now constanly getting the attched pics.

ANY help would be most appreciated before go completely potty.

Menat to mention the machine is new i5 2500 on a Gigabyte GA-H67A-UD3H-B3 running 7 Home Pre - my first build so no dealer backup.

Salvation!!

Hiyya p5bdkw Mate I did this on numerous occasions plus a heap of other stuff and thought - ummmm here we go again.

But you were right I rechecked the date and look when you are dealing with idiots expect idiots comprehension.

The date at first glance was right - except that it was Monday the 5th now I know that we sometimes think it's another day when it isn't and then I remembered signing something this morning in town dated the 4th.

Checked the date and time in cont pan and guess (well someone with a brain would have known!!) what - the year was still at 2010!!

Now I know I deserve a good thrashing and possibly made to go to my room and be denied use of the machines for a errrrr a couple of minutes but am downloading about 200Mb of stuff as I type!

I eckon what threw me was that I had a history that showed updates already on the machine and didn't pick up on why they took so long to be found - usually one sees them straight away.

Anyway you are a genius in my book - f ever you land up in an Emergency room where I sometimes work - you'll live lol!!

Thank you so much I appreciate your persistance and patience a great deal, and for those who have told me the same thing in the past my humble apologies.

nyway better stop rambling - just so excited at learning a valuable lesson!!

You may also want to check your event log to see if there's anything apparent which could have suddenly changed your system time.

Hmmmm thanks

Thanks Orbital thats something I wouldn't have thought about.

I did have a few BIOS issues a few days ago which took some very clever working out by the Bare Foot Kid - jeez he's a whizz isn't he??

Come to that most of you blokes seem to be the same.
