Windows 7: Previous updates disabled my CPU and I want to disable future updates

13 Feb 2014   #11

Windows 7 32 bit

I'm sorry, I wish I could tell you. The answer would be "allow updates to update", I guess. The sequence was:
1: get working laptop back from the shop roughly Jan 20-23rd, I recall it was over MLK holiday weekend.
2: Use normally
3: Observe (today) upon shutdown that 12 updates had been downloaded and not to turn off, they needed to install.
4: Freak out, shut computer off manually, improperly.
5: Power up computer, select "restart WDOs normally", then shut down normally.
Uh-oh...there they are again, wanting to update.
6: Power down manually, again.
6: Register to post on this forum <<<<<-------------------------------from another computer
7: ask my question
8: turn on again, shut down normally, allow updates
9: Now operating normally.

I really did nothing other than to accept the updates and now it appears to be working properly.

I hope you did not damage any hardware in the process. Just in case, run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker and Disk Check SFC /SCANNOW will check for damaged system files and Disk Check will check for damage on the hard drive itself.

It's hard to tell exactly what you are doing but I do have some thoughts.
When you install updates manually (as I do) install 2 or 3 at a time.
I start at the top and work my way down. If a update is big I will do it all by itself. I will reboot whether requested or not. Then wait until every thing is done before going back to the updates and pick some more updates. {Watch the light on the computer and wait until it's done blinking like crazy.} Sometimes it will boot to your desktop but the light is still blinking a lot. Just wait.
I stay with the computer when doing all of this but I don't do anything else on the computer when updating.{nothing}

Most people that have problems with Windows Updates have problems with their system before the updates ever start which causes problems with Windows Updates.

KB Updates Override Previous Privacy Settings For Sharing Telemetry
For those who don't mind sending telemetry to MS, skip this post. For all others... I happened to be in Task Scheduler for something completely unrelated, and noticed MS had setup tasks to send telemetry about my computer to MS, even though I had opted out of doing so when I installed W7. These...

Future updates?
I know patch Tuesday is soon to be a thing of the past. I believe MS will be pushing updates as and when they become available. My question is, have they already started doing this? The only reason I ask is because this week I have noticed some updates showing up out of cycle. I think one was...
