Okay, I'm trying to download the updates. It says it's downloading but it's still at 0%. It's been like that over 10 minutes, what's going on?

Many of this can be fetched and installed manually.

Unless you know why the services were disabled or by what, it's likely malware.

I was bad and didn't ask about the machine, the internet connection or well much else. I just had some Windows 7 updates and same thing. It sits there are 2 percent, jumps to 100, sits, spins the drive and then reboots to finish.

And this on a very fast connection and a Core i7 machine with all the trimmings.

"Oh wait..."

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
