Like the topic says, any time there is some sort of auto update for a program on my win 7 computer, the update fails. I have tried turning off Win Defender, Zone alarm, anti Virus, AntiMalware Bytes - etc. no joy.
Antimalware bytes, cannot start a scan as it gets stuck on auto updating
Origin Game client can never update
Gog Game client can never update
NVidia experience and all driver updates fail...
the list goes on.
I have one theory - A while back, I read an article about disabling Windows 7 services to speed up computer or just because "they didn't do anything" heh - now I am wondering if I have inadvertently disabled some network and sharing center services, disabled other services or changed some configs etc. that either closed down ports or changed the way my router looks at outgoing/incoming requests requests.
So I am requesting help. I am savvy to deal with "regEdit" using DOS commands, and will run any other test/report you suggest.
Lastly, I could be way off too, so I will try anything.
I thank any kind soul in advance.
