Windows 7: Sticking with Windows 7? The forecast calls for pain

25 Mar 2016   #11

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

Here is what I did
Before you start download KB3083710 and KB3102810 in advance, and store on a flash drive
Start and complete the install without an internet connection
Immediately after install is complete
Manually install KB3083710 and restart.
Manually install KB3102810 and restart.
Change your windows update settings I used Automatic and Unchecked Give me recommended updates the same....
Restore the Internet connection and Activate windows
Then launch Windows Update search
After about 5-10 minutes you should have plenty of updates to download and install.

Another thing is if you see this update make sure it is not installed with any other updates
It needs to be installed all by it's self
It was not uncheck automatically which caused many others to fail to install

Windows 8 pro upgrade was the bitch
I finally had to do 50 at a time until finished :/
Then finally got to download 8.1 pro which went fast as 7 did

I understand the rules for posts and that is OK. But an occasional link to a foreign language page should not hurt. There are members that do understand other languages. And those who do not understand can always ask for a synopsis in English. I just hate if we are more catholic than the pope on problems that can be easily accommodated.

You just have to manually load a couple updates and it brings up 159 Important updates in 10 minutes
My systems (2x desktop, 1x laptop) often take > 30 minutes to determine if there are any updates available.
Downloading the updates can take a few minutes or several hours.

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit 7601

I recently made a Windows 7 VM and used WSUS Offline Update it was quick and painless for most updates although I had to use Windows 7 update to install about 20 more, not sure why.

This is an international site where people can deal with many languages. I myself have no problem with 5 languages. So I don't think links should be restricted to English only.
Since German is your first language, mayhap you could help us out by translating the key points on the site and point out what the links are for? Not all of us are gifted with the ability to deal with more language like you are (I'm not being sarcastic, just jealous ).

And this is the reason I have saved the installers for each and every update I have installed since I first got Win 7, just over 2GB.
