Windows 7: windows security only updates

windows security only updates

Hello Everyone, I am just wondering if anyone knows why my ASUS pc is now having trouble with windows
updates. I do like to keep the pc updated, but every time I download and install a security only update
when I start my machine I always end up with the black screen for a while, and everything runs slow. I cannot find an answer to this. It has been a very reliable pc in the 3 years I have had it, only a few hiccups
because of mistakes I had made. The strange thing is I have a refurbished HP6005 Pro Quad AMD-Phe-2-x4 B95, with windows 7 pro 64 bit, and it has no problems with the updates, but I prefer the ASUS pc, not just
because it starts much quicker, everything runs quicker in it.

Hi Ethel,
i more to try
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821
you may have to scroll down for the X64 version.

Have a look in device manager any with ! a small down arrow or anything showing as Unknown Device.
While your in it -- check if your Display Adapter is upto date.

Other things that slow start-up
Adobe/Printers/Itunes/browsers/Asus and any other prog that you've installed - they all update at logon, you could set the service to manual or delayed

windows update

Thank you again Roy, I have downloaded kb947821 for 64bit operating systems, downloaded and installed
with no problems. I will check for updates shortly and see what it comes up with. I have looked at every
device under device manager. Every device is working properly, and I click view to show hidden devices,
and there are no unknown devices. The only things running under msconfig on startup are Trend Micro
Internet Security and AMD usb. I have unchecked AMD but I leave Trend alone as it does not seem to slow
the pc down, and if I set it to delayed startup, sometimes it does not start itself up, and then I have to play
with it. I am still using AMD Radeon HD7480D driver 12.105.0.0 and it is working properly. If I update this
driver from AMD I have problems, and it is listed as the last driver on the ASUS website.

windows update

Hello again Roy, Thank you for all of your help. I have come to the conclusion that the last 2 security only
updates that I installed November and December had caused the black screen issues. I will try them again
one day, and see what happens. I can only assume it is the updates as it is the only time I have the black
screen issues on startup. Once I uninstalled the updates the problem was gone. I do not have any adobe
programs installed, no iTunes, nothing much really. I never use any registry cleaner software, only ever
delete temporary files, windows disk clean-up sometimes. I only go on websites that I know are safe sites,
and my internet security has the green check ticks for safe sites anyway. I apologise if I have wasted your
time, I just thought there might be someone else with the same ASUS pc, and having the same problem
that I am having. I have noticed a few people with ASUS pcs having update issues, but they are different
models to this machine.
