OMG , i am in the process of downloading the" SURT " tool but it's gigantic , it's an hour long download and my computers pretty fast .

Hope it works

I just noticed that your Windows update information tells us to let you know what error codes we are getting, well i don't get error codes , i just want to know how to get updates to automatically update . The screenshot will show you i can't do it and i'm unable to make changes even when running admin.

I have been attempting to install the "SURT" all night but it just won't do it, it stops at about 25% and will not move at all.

I don't get any errors , i just want to make updates automatic.

It's quite normal for it to hang a couple of times during the install - you should only start worrying if it stays hung for more than two hours.
Please try again, and be patient!
