Windows 7: System won't start up after update

30 Dec 2012   #11

Windows 7 - 64

Has this ever been solved? I too have anti-virus AND malware-bytes installed and windows locks at the 'starting windows' screen after performing windows updates. Unfortunately I am now out of stored last good profiles.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

It's an HP laptop with windows 7 64 bit.

Hello Skzstoll and welcome to the forums

The original poster never returned to the thread, so we'll never know if it was solved or not.

In order to receive the best help, you will need to start a new thread of your own in the Windows Updates & Activation forum :)

Windows 7 64-bit

Hey guys, I wanted to come here to let you all know that I have had the same problem but following the instructions of "seavixen32" with the link provided on page 1 it has now fixed the issue 100%. It's about 500mb or so and takes quite a while for it to setup but it definitely fixed the windows update issue.

My computer now restarts fine without resorting to a repair start up all thanks to "System Update Readiness Tool". Could be why you never got a response from the person who made the thread. Could be that it was a fix and he/she just didn't return to give feedback.

My issue was exactly the same and this for me at least was a success. Big thumbs up! (SOLVED)

It'd probably be a good idea for you to upload your CBS and CheckSUR logs anyhow (in your own thread, please) so that we can check that everything is now OK - or did you look in the CheckSUR.log file to see the results?

I never replied because I gave up. The problem was solved when I bought a new SSD drive and had to reload all the updates from the start onto the new drive. So, no, I have no idea if that solved the problem or not.
