Mobo: MSI A75MA-G55
CPU/GPU: AMD A8-3850 (an APU)
RAM: 8 GB
OS: W7 SP1 Home Premium X64 OEM
HDD: 1 TB spinning rust
Computer is self built, i.e., I put it together from parts several years ago, (shortly after the APU came out)
I recently put together a new PC for myself, and my wife wants the PC described above. I reinstalled W7, from the OEM disk, used the mobo driver CD to get the drivers. Works fine; Graphics, NIC, etc.I'm using it now. Downloaded Avira Free AV, installed the Palemoon web browser.
Went the Windows updates in the control panel, said I needed to update the updater, so I did. rebooted the computer, and went back to WU it showed checked for updates: Never, last updated Never. Looking at installed updates shows that the updater was indeed updated. Seemed odd, but I click check for updates, and it was still checking after 2 hours. This isn't normal W7 behaviour. I closed the update window and rebooted.
Tried a MS W7 fix for Windows update. Said it fixed a problem. Tried to update the OS again, but again it never finishes checking for available updates.
Any help to get this fixed would be much appreciated, as I don't want to run an unpatched, internet connected PC.
