Windows 7: issues after installing updates

13 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64 PL

In my opinion hidding updates is not solution only workaround problem for the moment,if you leave it, you may have problem with other updates in future too.

I googled and really many people have problem with this hotfix (unable to install,loosing network connections or cannot to run system)

Try this:

1.Go to Control Panel>>Windows Update and install all optional updates (ncluding drivers)

remains new drivers find yourself in google or use this freeware tool Device Doctor Free Driver Update Software - Device Doctor,this tool help you quickly find new drivers

2.Uninstall McAffe
3.Try install this update on clean boot How to Troubleshoot a Problem by Performing a Clean Startup in Windows 7 or Vista

If nothing help I recommend to contact with manufacturer support and MS support
