ok it downloaded 2 updates and i had 3 optional ones which i left alone for the time being,
i have just tried to install again and it got to 100% before installation failed
yes that was the avg removal link i used, so now i will try your FS removal and try that way, im not the fastest on a comp so please bare with me
I have Win 7 and windows update stopped working one time and I couldn't install new updates. If your windows update isn't working properly anymore you can try this to reset windows update:
Go to Control Panel, Troubleshooting, Fix problems with windows update(under heading "System and Security")
(in control panel you might need to change "View by:" to be able to see all icons)
or http://support.microsoft.com/gp/windows-update-issues and look for an automated "Fix-it" solution
EDIT: I didn't see your last post, so don't do this if your windows update is already working :)
ok removed as per your link, reinstalled, it started at 1% instead of 70%, progressed to 70% stalled then as before bounced between 94%and 84% then quickly up to 100% installation failed.
i have been trying to remove avg tune up (which i downloaded with avg anti virus a couple of months back) but its not doing anything, i was hopeing that the link would remove that aswell as the avg anti virus but it remained, could this be connected because if it is not then there are no other clues i can give you as to why this F-S will not download??
if i had hair i would be pulling it out now !!! lol
Hi Nick or nikK
cheers i found the mr fix it guy and let him do his thing, what exactly i dont know but he came back happy, however when simon showed me how to check through control panel for updates, i had 2 that needed doing so im thinking mr fix it is abit like my wife and does only half a job
i dont think so..... i have a security thing from the hsbc bank that tells me if im on a secure site or not ( this site is showing unsecure ) i think its called rappore or something like that, basicly my www address bar goes green for good sites and grey for unsecured,
i will have ago with your link to see if its avg pc tune up creating the problem.
be back soon lol
Fix-it will only get windows update to work again. Then you have to search for and install any new updates. So I guess he's like your wife then
Regarding AVG Tuneup, it seems a lot of people are having trouble uninstalling it. Some suggest stopping its service before uninstall, others suggest installing it again and then try uninstalling it:
