So a few days ago, my machine turned on to a BSOD. I wasn't too worried, I'd dealt with plenty of them since Windows 10 was put on my machine. It was upgraded from Windows 7.
The error code was "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED"
I ran through everything me and multiple different tutorials could think of, including System Restore, sfc/scannow, System Repair, etc. to no avail.
It was time to reinstall Windows 7 from my disk, it was my only option at this point really, so that's what I did.
And it's still been non-stop problems. Constantly refusing to install updates, weird situations with downloads, etc. and it's really starting to make me fed up. This was the boiling point:
Service Pack 1 REFUSES to install. It hangs at approximately 50% every time:
As you can see, I'm using the standalone installer, and until now to type this post, I haven't had anymore programs open.
When I first installed Windows 7 I ran into some rather unpromising problems as well, as it seemed to be running through chkdsk multiple times on every reboot, until I had to stop is manually. Im afraid my HDD might be about to fail, if anyone has any idea on this too, let me know. It seems it's running slower too.
