Windows 7: Multiple Win7 updates fail to install

11 Dec 2017   #51

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

I've thought of that but with all the 'junkware' they force on our machines that are personalized to our login and passwords that they force us to change every 90 days, it wouldn't really be easy. I have a cloned drive from the end of 2016 but I don't remember the password on the login. The IT dept has a program installed that encrypts all of my user files and most of the installed programs. It uses the current login password to decrypt the files when the correct user logs into the machine. I may just wait to see what Noel comes up with. I do run a virus scan regularly as well as two different Malware scan programs and make multiple data backups (2 different external drives) on a regular basis - individual files as well as the Windows data backup and Windows Image. Unfortunately I don't have one from just before this issue started. I do thank you for your assistance though.

I would like to thank everyone for their assistance here. I am considering the issue closed due to having to get a replacement hard drive. One of our cats knocked the laptop off our kitchen table and, after several attempts to repair the hard drive (it was running at the time), my work is going to either replace the hard drive with a new one or replace the entire laptop if the original one is not under warranty.
