Do you have the SP1 installed? How long to do you leave it be?

Download the batch script i have attached to my post and run the batch script as a administrator to reset Windows Update components you will be prompted to rstart your computer which you should so make sure to save all open files and close opened programs before running the batch script.

@ shawn77bird #1

 

You appear to have an identical topic running at 'Geekstogo'. while this is not wrong it does mean you stand the risk of getting conflicting advice which is not being seen by all parties to this discussion. This can cause confusion, aggravate your problem and cause it to take longer to fix !

 

It is better to let one forum's members have their go at offering advice and only then, if they run out of ideas, take the problem to a different forum..

I am going to be away on holiday until the 13th May. While I expect to have internet access my time on-line may well be limited and PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal.
