Thanks. Right here's where I am at. I have reinstalled Windows 7 Starter to factory settings from recovery discs - clean install with recovery discs. Disk check done first. No viruses anywhere on any hardware.

So I didn't remove MSE and install my own antivirus, thought I'd keep it simple. Connected to internet, let MSE update, uninstalled windows essentials, restarted. During restart it said Windows applied an update. After restarting went to Windows update and there is a red cross there already.

So something is preventing me from running Windows 7. The Recovery discs are genuine OEM from the manufacturer. It seems to me that since installing Windows 10 I am now prevented from running Windows 7 - is that possible?!

I suppose it is, if the activation for Windows 10 is taken from the Windows 7 product key.

I am going to do it one more time - install from recovery discs, connect to internet, activate MSE and not uninstall any programs or restart, but go straight to Windows update after MSE is updated.

Nope still has a red cross. It's searching - last time it did this all day and night so I guess I'll have to leave it and see if it actually does anything, but did read on another post on here that upgrading the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver might do the trick.

I tried updating Windows defender as described somewhere on the net. This triggered Windows update to update itself. I now have all my programs back on and Home Premium installed, but still no Windows updates. It is just searching constantly. Will leave it overnight and see if it comes up with anything.

I'm marking this as solved to open a new thread on Windows updates as I have gone off topic a bit.
