Brand new HDD and fresh install of win7. I have windows update set to "never", and have IE11 installed since I heard that was a prerequisite to some of this.
I have seen several threads with different instructions saying "you must follow this exactly" and others that said they followed it, and still no updates.
This is the second attempt on installing win7, the first on a HDD that "may" have been bad. But the first attempt was this instructions here,
>Go to this page http://wu.krelay.de/en/2016-09.htm and Install manually the updates listed there in order, that apply to your Windows
- If any of the updates says it's already installed simply Cancel and move on to the next Update;
Notes: from poster
- After installing each update if you get a prompt to restart the computer choose No until you install the last update on the list
I got through the first 3 of these and on the third, the computer would just hang up. Yes, updates were set to "never". Then changed the HDD.
After HDD install, I followed the instructions on this page below but got stuck on no5.
When I downloaded and tried to install the IE11 update I got "searching THIS computer for updates". Windows updater was set to "never".
I also see some references to simply installing an April and July rollup update manually, then going to update windows. So what is the best way?
