Windows 7: How to install updates that do not require SSE2 ?

How to install updates that do not require SSE2 ?

Hello guys, as you can see on my title, I have some problems trying to install some updates on an old computer that I own.


The computer has these specs:
AMD Athlon XP 1.25GHz processor.
1,5Gb of RAM.
Ati Radeon 9250.


The problem that I have is that when I'm installing the updates from Windows Update, when I restart the computer, suddenly the computer doesn't boot anymore, because there's an update that requires SSE2 instructions that unfortunately my computer doesn't have.

At least I can install updates until those one who are from February 2018 that looks like they require SSE2 instructions.



Now my question is, how can I install just the updates that don't require SSE2 ? or how can I install the updates until February of 2018 ?



I would like to still using Windows 7 on this machine and still having the machine, so please don't tell me to install Windows XP or buy a new computer.


Thank you very much for your help.


In this link we can see that this guy has the same problem as me:Windows 7 does not boot after 2018-02 on Athlon XP - Microsoft Community


Regards.

Hello R6exe

If you were to turn off Automatic Updating (if you have not done so already) then no updates will be installed.

If you Hide individual Updates in Windows Update, then those individual Updates will not be installed.

You would use a torrent client. e.g. utorrent.

some torrent clients link to your browser so when you click a torrent link in the browser, the client opens up.
