had to install win7 again, hardware failure( HDD) so I installed W7 64bit, like it a lot more than 32bit, but my updates are failing to install, under Services.msc there is no Automatic Updates, there is a Win updater, cannot run %systemroot%, from the command prompt, any ideas anyone
did most of that,(how do I do a clean boot in 7) all it says is it failed, but I found a work arround I like better than the MSFT updater, after updating now it says error 646, which I am told is a registry problem, I dsabled the auto updates and will not update , not the best solution, but MSFT updates have always been a problem causing issue with me, but is a issue with the updates, even though the work arround is a lot easier, after rebooting the computer has issues, just like XP and Vista
I'm glad to hear you've come to terms with Windows Update causing problems , but if you like, I'd urge you to at least try troubleshooting the issue. You can run the Windows Update troubleshooter by clicking Start > Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Under System and Security, click Fix problems with Windows Update.
