let me get this right. So Microsoft, a Billion dollar corporation, creates a software package (Windows 7) which millions of people use. They burn it to a disk and sell it in retail stores. But wait there's more... They decide to make updates and put them on their website. Security updates, and other "important" updates as well. So if they are going to do this, those updates should be able to be installed on ANY COMPUTER in the world once the store bought software has been successfully installed. This is NOT the case for me. I have reformatted at least 25 times my brand new Western Digital hard drive and installed from the disk. It installs with the Service pack one. Do I really need these updates? I cannot install all of them. It shows me 70+ to install and I get about 40 of them installed, and then a batch of them corrupts my files and on bootup it goes into startup repair mode. Of course the startup repair Cannot Fix this problem automatically. Also I try to restore, and while it appears to do this, and it even says "restore successfull" on the bootup the computer will NOT go into windows and it always starts the startup repair. It's just ridiculous and wastes a lot of my time. Is there a solution? Is just having a virus program like AVG enough?

90 percent of registered windows pc don't have any issue with windows updates if there no hardware or software issues on the pc and the updates are coming from a Microsoft server or real update cd. 50 percent of windows update issues are some anti virus engines. It happened with nortons and others over the years. If you do install a anti virus software do it after all of the updates Make sure it the newest version of the software. Also be care full of the free anti virus softwares now. A lot of scammers put up fake web pages and links in google thinking your getting the free software but it a hacked or infected copy. With hardware run hd tune and memtest. If your hd or ram has an issue it can damage the widows dwnloads

Thanks for your response, but there is nothing wrong my my HDD or my memory. This is a custom PC. It is a dual drive system, and I have Windows 7 on the drive I'm working on right now.
