    How to manually update Win 7

    I have a Toshiba laptop running Win 7 32bit. It was current on updates until July 2015. Then WU went crazy hijacked my cpu & kept trying to download Win 10. I know alot of people were having similar problems. Anyway its been worked on remotely by 2 different techs and I've spent most of the last 4 weekends researching and trying different fixes and nothing has helped. I think WU is completely screwed up now.

    I just want to find and install the updates that I need from last July until now. I've tried MS catalog also the download pages at MS website but I can't seem to get the information I need. I read about a program called Belarc that among other things can tell what updates a system is missing. Has anyone used it for that purpose? Are there better programs? I really don't want to go thru 120+ pages of downloads at MS and try to pick out all the ones that I need. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi Tabitha,
    Belarc should be ok, i suggest you do them in groups of 5/10.
    Not surprised that your CPU went crazy as you only have 2GB of ram.
    Have a look at this link for Updates to hide(W10), or remove them if allready installed.

    Thanks for answering so quick. Nice info on the Win 10 crapware updates. I installed a program called GWX control thats supposed to prevent a lot of the problems caused by those updates but I knew I would have to watch out for them when I updated. That stupid Win10 icon on my task bar kept popping up even tho WU wasn't working & GWX control panel did get rid of it. Thanks again for responding - I think I'll give Belarc a try.
