To trouble shoot this you need the number of the update (it's form is KB123456) in order to research what could be amiss.
Do you remember this:
"Doctor, it hurts when I do this."
(doctor) "Don't do that."
Sorry to read about the pending installs issue. Unless you can supply some details.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 that I had to reformat the hard drive on everything appeared to be fine with it, I had all my discs and was able to download other drivers off my desktop. My problem occurs when I install windows updates. Every time I install them, my computer will not start up properly. I have to put in my windows disc and go to the repair section of it. Also, when I close the lid on my laptop, it starts to install updates and than shut down and the problem occurs again.
Does anyone have any suggestion of what I can do to fix this problem. Thanks
