The other day, I had to do a system restore. For whatever reason, I forget.

Now I can't get the Microsoft Updates to install. in one mode it says there is 0.0 MB & the other mode says there is 2.6 MB.
Anyway, I can't get the updates to download & get the program wanting to down load to do so.

It keeps cycling around & asking me to download. Automatic updates is on. I don't know how serious of a problem it is?

I have hopefully, been able to put on the attachment for the type of Update it is: C++

Please let me know what I need to do.
Thanks,
Mix

Why the huge font?

I'm afraid I don't understand what you are saying. Can you rephrase your problem?

If I was able to attach the snap shot of the screen, maybe it would explain itself?

I'm trying to get the automatic updates to install on my laptop. The other day I had did a system restore. & now I get a message to install updates. The laptop goes through the motions of downloading & then it says it's installing them.

After awhile the same prompt for automatic updates pops up. It's like the computer isn't absorbing the program?

Sorry about the font; thought it would be easier to read.

Again, I am trying to attach the screen shot. So far I can't. Maybe I need to down load it from a web based photo site?

Thanks,
mix

I tried the site. It didn't help. I tried all three downloads. At least you showed a download site, I've never seen before.

Usually, I have no problems. The automatic updates usually pops up & says to go ahead & work while updates are being installed. I never know what's going on.

This time, because I did a system restore, I think it through the sequence out of whack. i tried to reverse the system restore to the original date but it said I couldn't.

I would uninstall Microsoft Visual C++, using Add/Remove Programs...on the premise that it's damaged.

I would then reinstall it, if I really needed it.
