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