several years ago I had problems installing windows updates on my windows 7. When they would try to install on start up, they appeared to install fine until they get to one that would not install, and I would get installation failed message. Someone said microsoft sent the wrong update for 64 bit windows 7. It has been a few years and since I haven't been able to install, I haven't been able update anything including my internet explorer. Now I can't get on the internet and apparently need usb drivers. What should I do?

This should fix windows update....

 

Download

Windows Repair (All In One)

Extract and launch the Repair_Windows.exe file

Click on Start repairs tab-click on Start

check mark following options alone

Reset registry permissions
reset file permissions

Checkmark Restart System When Finished option
click the Start button

System should restart after repair

You should be able to update now

 

 

 

and this should fix the no internet problem....

 

 




Turn off computer. Disconnect router, and modem from power source for 1 minute. At the same time disconnect ethernet cable as well.
Reconnect everything.
Restart computer.

If that doesn't work, bypass router, and connect computer straight to the modem.

If that doesn't work...
Go Start>Run (Start search in Vista), type in:
cmd
Click OK (in Vista and 7, while holding CTRL, and SHIFT, press Enter).

In Command Prompt window, type in following commands, and hit Enter after each one:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
net stop "dns client"
net start "dns client"



Restart computer.

If that doesn't work...
Go Start>Run (Start search in Vista and 7), type in:
cmd
Click OK (in Vista and 7, while holding CTRL, and SHIFT, press Enter).

At Command Prompt, type in:
netsh int ip reset reset.log
Hit Enter.
Type in:
netsh winsock reset catalog
Hit Enter.

Restart computer.
