Hi, I'm new to bleeping computer and this is my first post. :hello: :)

 

I'm planning to format my laptop because it starts to slow down, I've decided it already and backed-up important files and downloaded essential apps, like installers (.NET Frameworks, vcredist, drivers, utilities) and such. My problem is that, if I format it how can I update it to its latest? What's bothering me if I should download a year-long windows updates and year-long installations? 

 

I've already searched for it and tried to to my other laptop but it seems doesn't work, some sites tell that I should download KBXXXXX but when I start it, it says "This update is not applicable..." something like that. 

 

Can someone with a kind-hearted person there will tell me a step-by-step guide to overcome this?

 

Cheers!

Use auto updates...for critical updates only.

 

If an update it not critical, I don't bother to install it.  This works for me.

How can I identify if it is critical or not?

I saw something on the internet,  Microsoft’s Convenience Rollup. Is this works? and how to do it?

Are you saying your new installation of Windows 7 is not Updating?  If so follow the directions at THIS LINK.  If you have a 32bit system then copy the KB Number and go find the 32bit Version.  This will take quite a while but let it download and install all updates, and Search For Updates like Four Times to get them all.

 

During the Install of your other machine, don't accept the Default of "Checking for Updates" Setting or something to that effect.  This way it won't start updating until after you've installed the Critical Prerequisites I've listed.
