I then booted up again with the TI2011 disk and restored the MBR separately. Uninstall Windows Updates In Windows Uninstalling updates from within Windows is very simple. And a bunch of other combinations of above.So I think there is an issue with system restore.

It's still puzzling why the auto update seems to have corrected itself - I can now run the "Windows Update" function without problems. Now I still have the icon in my task bar but whenever I place my cursor over it it says I have new updates available.

Obviously I have no qualms about using Windows, but as with all other operating systems, it has drawbacks, yes, but it also has advantages.

I also ran into this issue after "cloning" a WD HDD to a Crucial SSD on a 64-bit Win 7 Acer Aspire 5738ZG laptop - the "Check for Updates" button did This looping is an example of very poor workmanship Reply Bearworf November 29, 2014 at 3:37 pm Once I get rid of this Microsoft BS, I am purchasing a different OS. Previously, the box to enable formatting of the disk was greyed out; after loading the drivers, this was enabled and I dutifully ticked it. http://powerglobaldesigns.com/windows-update/windows-update-update-not-working.html So I bought another drive (same size) and restored my image!

Went to install while on it and it gets stuck installing at creating a restore point. U bet! After restoration, I discovered that Windows Update refused to fetch any updates, even though the corresponding service appeared to be running without any trouble.

My fix was to manually install the latest Intel driver: Intel® Rapid Storage Technology  (link may be stale - see update below) That installs a lot more than necessary - AFAICS

Anyone else experience this? After removing the offending updates (see below), you can restore the registry file, the support page explains how this is done. The 500 GB HDD has been running fine for months, but it’s been filling up, hence my wish to upgrade to 750 GB. I got continuous error messages telling me to click such-and-such an error code to find out what to do.
