windows 7 64
 
 

hello,

tried to install one by one but these 2 are just hanging

2916036
2868116.

i think i'll just leave the ones that don't install. i am most disappointed by windows updates. i don't know how they can expect someone to download for 3 days after a system recovery.

i will use different operating system in future.

bye.

Even if you installed them all together or 5 at a time for example.... they should install with norton security enabled. It only takes hours! Did you pay for norton??? I find it a piece of crap. If I were you I uninstalled it normally and reboot. Then https://support.norton.com/sp/nl/nl/...rProfile_en_us and reboot.

Then install Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

That's about par for the course - especially if you also have ANY other security software either installed/running, or have ever used any other AV, without fully removing it prior to installing Norcrap^h^h^h^hton.
