I need to repair my Windows 7 64 Bit computer because it will not run automatic updates and keeps giving me errors. I'm assuming something was corrupted from a virus in the past. The computer does not have SP1 installed (thats what I'm trying to get but windows updates fails) however the only reinstall disks I have to do the repair are Windows 7 64 Bit SP1. Can I use this even though I'm not yet at SP1 or will this cause problems? I'm trying to avoid wiping out the hard drive.

 

Thanks!

Carrie

Try using Tweaking.com 's Windows Repair (All In One) link here http://www.tweaking.com/content/page/windows_repair_all_in_one.html

It's saved me a few times when I just couldn't figure out why a certain error message would come up when trying to apply Windows updates.

Hi

 

Can you clarify some more things?  

 

Is it a laptop or desktop ? 

 

Do you have a retail installation or OEM install ? (OEM means the one that came installed when you purchase a system) 

 

What is the edition of your installed Windows ?

 

 

Since you don't have SP1 installed, the very first step is to install it. Download the SP1 offline setup from the below link and install it.

After Sp1 installation finished, run "windows update readiness tool". It will most likely solve your update problems. If don't post a reply.

What is the error message you are receiving?

 

You can download this on another computer, put is on a flash drive and install it from there.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
