I see two possible explanations:
1. You cleaned too much or you cleaned not all or something was damaged by whatever you cleaned (cleaning doesn't undo the damage done by the bad software).
2. A glitch at your ISP or at Microsoft.
Let's hope it's #2. Keep trying for a few days. If still no luck, I'm afraid it's #1. Then you might have to do a refresh or a reset of Windows.
I hardly ever go to Windows Update. I've set it to "download automatically and let me choose". Then I always accept the important ones and only check the optional ones (that might include the annoying please-update-to-windows-10 updates that I don't want). Works fine. Works fine and is less work (and safer) than checking all, as you seem to do.
Using Lenovo G585 laptop, Firefox 47, and with Sophus UI, Malwarebytes Free and CCleaner antivirus programmes installed.
This will no doubt seem a stupid question, but I would much appreciate some advice.
I regularly go to M/S Updates in my Control Panel and after downloading the updates that I have checked, I install them.
I recently had a slow computer problem which was solved by advice and assistance, with scans and cleaning, from Cnet.
I have just tried to update from M/S and cannot download any updates.
I know only one method to assist this and it is-
in the box above Start type - MSCONFIG - enter
click on Service tab
At bottom of the page check the Hide all M/S Services and click Disable All.
Accept changes and restart. (After completion, reverse process in MSCONFIG)
I did this and started the Update (29 updates) process. By the end of an hour, the progress was "0 kb total, "0"% completed"
I have tried also, disabling the 3 A.V. programmes with the same result.
I would be grateful for any advice on how to download the updates please.
