Windows Update Posting Instructions

Step 4 asks you to copy the CBS folder to your desktop and put it in a zip folder.
Upload the zip folder when you post again.

If the zip folder is too big for the forum, upload just the CBS.log from the CBS folder copy on your Desktop.

Please add your SF Systems Specs by following this tutorial: System Info - See Your System Specs
  • In the System Manufacturer/Model Number field, manually type Desktop or Laptop adding it to the information already in the field.
  • Specify Custom Build as the manufacturer if it is not an OEM machine.
  • The tool does not fill in this information but it is very important if someone has to research drivers or hardware for your machine.
Log on to Sevenforums (SF) and let the tool fill in you System specs on your SF profile.

Full instructions are in the tutorial. It's a simple process and it makes that information readily available on your posts. You don't have to retype the information in any thread.

There are signs of BitDefender in the logs. There have been some recent problems with BD - but until we see the full SFC details, it's difficult to know.

Also, please upload your C:\Windows\windowsupdate.log file - it will also give us more information.
