Okay then I'd suggest going through the same steps again and try force installing Windows Update Agent from the command prompt:

"C:\Full Path to Installer\WindowsUpdateAgent-7.6-x64.exe" /wuforce

Replace Full Path to Installer in the line above with the actual path.

Other than that I'd suggest getting help by posting in the Windows Updates section and post the requested information. The helpers there will be able to give you better advice on how to fix the problem. I fixed the problem on my own machine but maybe there are other isuues on your machine that I'm not aware of.

Hi there, This is maybe the wrong section, but I did not know which one to pick: I experience issues when I open directories with big HD movies in it (around 4-10GB). The media player loads fast (VLC, KMP, WMP) but the video never starts. After 5-10 secs, my computer starts to run very...
