Hi NoelDP
Sorry its taking a while, I am busy with Christmas etc but am still trying to get this sorted. I still cant update. My permissions although read in my user account as Administrator do not actually perform as
when I log in using the cmd prompt the target directory automatically goes to Users\myname which on the C:\ drive properties does not have the write and modify. I am going to try and run a Windows 7 repair disk through to see if this will sort the permission behaviour out. Once I have done that I will try and run the file again and then will send the logs regardless of what result I get. I may not get to this
for a couple of days as on leave at the moment but will do so as soon as I get back.
Hope you have a wonderful holiday season and thanks again for all your help, I ll get the files to you as soon as I can.
Regards Mumsy

Hi NoelDP

Thank you so much for your help. I have recently had to install Office 2010
as part of my work requirements and since the install I have been able to use
the windows update service and it seems to be running as normal with no
interruptions so far. This may not be helpful with what we were trying to do
and I still have the permissions issue to sort which is why I havent been able
to get back to you on that. However in the meantime yesterday once I had
installed the 2010 Office professional plus package the update is behaving
as it should and I am now able to receive and install selected updated as I would
normally would have.

Again many thanks for your assistance and the service you offer to those in need
on Windows 7 (which I have no doubt I will probably need again at some stage! lol).

Hope you had a good holiday season,
Kind regards
Mumsy

That's good to hear - you may want to start a new thread about your permissions issues and solve that.

Good luck!
