The NLS can't start, because the Network Location Awareness service can't start....
Now I have to find out why NLA can't start

There may be a clue or three there - but to be honest, the event logs are a mess

I'm starting to think in terms of a repair install.

Hi,
It's weird, but the "tip" you posted with "download windows repair tool" doesnt show up in your post when I open this thread on my computer, but it does show up when I open the thread on my phone...

Anyway I downloaded the registry reviver that it linked to and it showed several errors but it wants me to buy the full version for $30 in order to fix them - is that what you're recommending I do?

DO NOT use ANY registry 'cleaner' - EVER!

Ok, glad I asked...
So how do I go about doing a "repair install"? I hope you dont mean of Windows... it was already installed on my computer when I bought it 3 years ago and I dont have the Windows disks.

Probably nothing to do with your case but I had that same update message and I solved it by turning off Malwarebytes..........

I dont think I have Malwarebytes on my computer - I searched for it and nothing.

I think MB was causing some firewall issue on mine. you might take a shot and disable any AV or malware apps you have installed......? Just a thought.....

This happens when you are not logged in to SevenForums. I get fooled too sometimes. Certain words get tagged by adverts when you are not logged in to the forums.

This is probably why you didn't see it on your computer (logged in) but did see it on your phone (not logged in).

A rule of thumb: most members include the application name in their post if they recommend software utilities.
An advert tags keywords (driver, repair, etc).

It's best to log in to avoid any confusion.
