Windows 7: Internet gets slow after windows updates failed to install

Internet gets slow after windows updates failed to install

So, today I downloaded and installed some windows updates which I think important.

but, because of my internet connection was using USB modem, it seems that some of the updates failed to download and I stopped it. and then I installed the rest which successfully downloaded and logged back in. and there was a notification stated that two updates were failed to installed. but I ignored and continued to what I was working on.

and problem occurs. i noticed that my internet connection became slow. well, usually my internet is fast. at first, i thought the connection problem was because of the provider's bugs (usually when a problem shows up, it was all the provider's fault. i've checked the signal on the modem and they're no problem, so I know it wasn't the provider this time). but then i remembered the failure notice of the windows updates earlier and i became all suspicious (it's true - the more you know, the more you think. thanks to this forum, i learned a lot from here ). here are the updates that were failed to install.

I decided to roll back to earlier system restore points (I regularly create my own system restore point) where before the updates were installed. I logged back in and tried my internet connection again, and... well, it seems to be working fine... for now. I still feel that my internet's still somehow not back to its full state yet.. well I can just feel it, usually when I surf through familiar sites such deviantart which is the best site to measure the internet connection for me. when I accessed this forum, too, it wasn't as fast as before.

so, was it true that the failure of the updates was the cause of my internet connection problems? also, I want to ask, even if I have rolled back to the restore point before the updates were installed,will the problem still occur? if so, is there a way to fix that problem?

i'm sorry if I did a mistake of the posting or I break a rule, I'm still new here, but I try my best to follow the rules, and thanks in advance for all your help.

when I tried to run the SFC, it stopped at 14% and says,

"Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation". what should I do?

Your best option in that case is to run the CHKDSK and SFC in offline mode from a Repair Environment boot.

Reboot the computer, and tap the F8 key until you get the advanced boot menu up - one option should be 'Repair your computer'. Pick that one.

Log into your normal account.
You'll get a set of options - pick the Command Prompt one.
At the command prompt, type DIR C:\
- if we're lucky this will bring up a listing of your normal C: drive contents, including the Program Files folder(s) and the Windows folder.
If not, try D:\ or E:\ (etc. until you get the right letter)
then type the following command

CHKDSK <drive>: /R

and wait for it to complete - it could take a few hours, depending on the size of the drive.

Once complete, type

sfc /scannow /OFFBOOTDIR=<drive>:\ /OFFWINDIR=<drive>:\Windows

where <drive> is the letter you found above.
(example - sfc /scannow /OFFBOOTDIR=P:\ /OFFWINDIR=P:\Windows)

Wait for the command to complete. (make a note of the response!).

Once it has, type EXIT and the pick the option to reboot.

thank you so much for carrying on with me Noel.

I'll mark this thread as solved as for now, my internet's back to its full strength. but, I will follow and do as you guided me on your post about running SFC and check disk in offline mode, to see if anything's wrong. thankfully I always did a manual restore point everytime I 'play' with my system. once again, thank you so much for the guide above, it really helped me because I can't run SFC in normal mode, Noel! I'll note down that and print that out, to run the SFC and check disk. and finally again, thanks a bunch for you.
