Old laptop HP win7 32bit was not updated more than an year. Auto updating doesn't work so the only way is downloading the updates manually and installing  them using windows standalone installer one by one. So the computer works much better and faster but there blinking black screens that appear at starting. After the win logo few black blinking screens than black screen with cursor after that welcome screen than again blinking black screen and the computer starts and works fine. Same problem at shutting down. So my question is should i continue installing updates? Also i disabled avast twice to install net framework security updates. Thanks for any help.

 Install all the updates and keep current.  I've never had a problem with that practice with Windows 7, 8, or 10.  However I don't install optional updates except in very rare circumstances where I'm sure I need to.

 

 Good luck. 


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Do you have SP1 installed?

 

Let's see if we can get the auto update option working.

 

Please download and run the Windows Update Troubleshooter.
 
Post the results in your topic.
 
Clicking on the link above will start the download automatically.

 Try this.  Start an Administrative command prompt and issue this command: sfc /scannow.  If that doesn't help, download MalwareBytes, get it up to date, and do a scan.

 

 Good luck.

I did the sfc/scannow.

 

Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations

 

 

And I have scanned the computer for viruses few times and nothing was detected.

Go to  Microsoft Support and download the Windows 8 and Windows 7 Fix it.

 

After the Fix it has run restart the computer.

 

Restart the computer.

 

Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png and then type services in the Search programs and files box.

 

In the pane above the search box Programs will appear with Services below it, right click on Services and select Run as administrator.

 

When Services opens scroll down to Background Intelligent Transfer service.

 

The  Status should be Running, the Startup Type should be Automatic (Delayed)

 

Do the same with Windows Update service.  Status should be Running, Startup type should be Manual.

 

Let me know if this resolves the problem.

I tried again to install an update but it doesn't work.

Go back to the services, right click on the services one at a time.

 

Select Properties.

 

Under Service status: click on Start.

 

Do this with both services.

You have to right click on the service, then select Properties.  Then you will see a image similar to the one below.  Notice the areas outline in red.

By the way I had forgotten that i installed probably two updates with windows update some time ago. I tried it many times with same update few days and finally it worked. So may be it is not completely blocked. I can try it again in the next days to see what will happen after using troubleshooter.
