Most of the problems that you get from a MSFT update is caused from a driver. The update utility for laptops in my opinion should never be uninstalled. Yes, I agree it's bloatware and 90% of the time sits there doing nothing. Since I am tech I see a lot more going on though. As a example there was a recall recently on Toshiba laptop batteries as they discovered a dangerous flaw. This is something that MSFT cannot help with. It was a program pushed over that Toshiba utility to download and used to check the serial numbers if those system's had the bad batteries. This is pretty darned important. A lithium ion battery exploding and bursting into fire is not a pretty sight.

Tech forgive me I didn't followup. For some reason the issues we were having cleared up. It has been too long for me to remember what the magic wand was but I do remember wondering why it suddenly found the list of available  updates again. Seems I went thru and selected just a few of those available updates at a time and downloaded and then installed and ultimately got them all done and now wallah it is back on the straight and narrow. Thanks for all your help,patience, understanding, kindness and dedication. Because of people like you, people like me can learn slowly, yet correctly. I appreciate your time and effort. D
