Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Thanks for your help. The reason that it wouldn't install the latest updates is because the Windows Update software for Windows 7 was not up to date. I followed many online tutorials and guides on how to fix that, and found a video on YouTube! to watch. It said to download the latest Windows Update software, and that is what resolved the issue. Then, I upgraded it to Windows 10 Home 64-bit. Everything is working great now. I finished my work on it, gave it back to my friend's parents, and they were thrilled at how good it is working now. I made $80 on that computer job.
