Failed Updates
Usually when I try to install updates, a message will appear indicating that
the process has failed. When I allow Windows to automatically install
updates, however, my Internet connection fails and I then have to do a system
restore to remove the updates so that I can use the Internet again. Can you
please help me with this, as I do want to be able to update my computer with
programs and anti-virus updates without losing my Internet connection each
time? Thanks. Allen

Re: Failed Updates
• Which version of the Windows operating system am I running?
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...m-am-i-running

• Is my PC running the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows?
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...t-32-or-64-bit

Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) when posting in a forum or
newsgroup. Please do so in your next reply.

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it)?
