Windows 7: Endless Windows Update loop

21 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Endless Windows Update loop

Hello, Let me recap my problems;

I am using an HP core i5 notebook running Windows 7 64bit os that has been working flawlessly for years. My updates are set up for automatic updates and install. However, on the 17th of Aug. 9 updates were downloaded but the installation went on for ever rebooting my system each time. This completely screwed up my system especially my connectivity to the Internet. I have reset the updates and I am free of the perpetual reboots. I have tried to restore my system to several restore points but I keep getting the error message

"System restore failed to replace the file with its original copy from the restore point. An unspecified error occurred during the system restore (0x80071a90)"

I'm also running Mcafee Internet security. Any help would be appreciated. Thx
