Hi Guys,

Windows 7 auto-updated last night, and left me with a big mess today.

A lot of windows services are not responding at all, will not open, some freeze ect...

It all started with windows getting stuck at the blue screen, something along the lines of preparing windows ect, do not shut down. It kept looping on restart.

I got it to finally get to windows but..

Windows Update (does not open at all)
System Restore Opens *but* I apparently do not have any restore points
Safe Mode with Network boots to a black screen (safe mode in all 4 corners though)
Microsoft excel does not open
Cannot uninstall Microsoft starter 2010

I deleted all files under c>windows>softwaredistribution>download

I downloaded the service pack 1 manually from Microsoft website, the .exe file will not run at all.

So there it is, I can browse the internet but most windows services do not run.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Download Windows 7 Services Repair to your desktop.
  • Important that this tool is on Desktop!
  • Right Click Run as Administrator.
  • Type 2 into the CMD window, hit enter.
  • Allow it to complete.
  • Then type 3 into the Command window, hit enter.
  • Allow that to complete as well.
  • Then reboot your machine.

downloaded to desktop, went to right click, hour glass pops up and will not allow me to proceed. Eventually throws off a "application is not responding prompt".

Actually looking at my DL page in firefox. When saving to desktop it says "failed", when saving to somewhere like download folder it doesn't say failed.

Though even when I go to find it in the download folder via windows explorer I get a warning box (and cannot proceed) "the remote procedure call failed and did not execute"

1.) Run sfc / scannow

 

2.) Create a new admin Profile

 

See how things run under the new profile.

Created new user, tried to log on. I get blank desktop screen, gets stuck with a pop-up box that says "setting up personalization settings". Never moves past this.

 

Can't run the scan as elevated, I go to right-click the command prompt and I get an hour glass that freezes the start menu.

I pulled up the windows update report, here's what came up. Seems a lot failed on 3/9.

 

I don't know how to proceed since most windows processes will not run/start or freeze.

 

I should note, I have 24/7 McAfee virus protection. I am 100% certain this was caused by the update.

No I do not. Can't I burn one, they are generic no? Take a look at these two attachments, I really do not want to wipe the hard drive clean.

I am not asking you to wipe the HDD I would say grab a copy of windows 7 from here, then perform a repair install. Make sure you have your product key prior to starting this.

Giving it a try now, why wouldn't I create a repair disk from inside windows?

Given all of your current issues a repair install is your best option IMO.
