My apologies for not responding sooner. The holidays and some family issues put this problem on a back burner. I finally got back to it late last night.
At the time of my original post Windows services said the search function was working, but when I clicked on it I got nothing. Contana was on the screen, but again when I clicked on it I got nothing. Windows services said that windows updates was on, but no updates were being posted. I tried a whole bunch of stuff yesterday but nothing worked. I could not even get Windows to search for an update, therefore I could not get a screen shot of an error message. Finally I bit the bullet and did a Windows reset. I really did not want to but felt I had no choice.
I was still having some issues, but some of the updates installed. The anniversary updates would not. I had no antivirus software running since the reset took care of that program. Finally I bypassed the firewall and that did the trick. Everything is up to date.
I really appreciate everyone who replied to my original post. It is the help of people like you that make life with a computer so much easier.
