I believe we are going to have to wait for the cure?? :-) My computer is running out of page space Because of the amount of failed attempts on this one update. :-) Once I figure out how to clean out windows updates without wiping out all the updates? lol!! I'm starting to believe that when I bought the disk, Windows 7 Pro. It was only half the Operating System? The rest are all updates lol!! Should have bought a bigger SSHD :-)

Please provide a copy of your System Information file. Type System Information in the Search Box above the start Button and press the ENTER key (alternative is Select Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Information). Select File, Export and give the file a name noting where it is located. Do not place the cursor within the body of the report before exporting the file. The system creates a new System Information file each time system information is accessed. You need to allow a minute or two for the file to be fully populated before exporting a copy. Please upload the file to your OneDrive, share with everyone and post a link here. Reports in normal mode preferred. Please say if the report has been obtained in safe mode.

 

Please upload and share with everyone fresh copies of your System and Application logs from your Event Viewer to your One Drive and post a link here. You can remove the earlier copies of the logs from your OneDrive.

 

Please upload and share with everyone copies of your System and Application logs from your Event Viewer to your OneDrive and post a link here.

 

To access the System log select Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer, from the list in the left side of the window expand Windows Logs and select System. Place the cursor on System, select Action from the Menu and Save All Events as (the default evtx file type) and give the file a name. Do the same for the Applications log. Do not provide filtered files. Do not place the cursor in the list of reports before selecting Action from the menu. Do not clear logs whilst you have a continuing problem.

You are serious?? Right!! You want me to post for the world to see, my system Info. What, how and why would I ever want to do that? And how will this help me to install a security update? I'd rather allow my computer to melt down, before I posted any info on any part of my comp to the world. Sorry but I will wait it out or  call the help desk. :-) I know it's early here in the U.S But damn, I'm not that asleep at the wheel. lol!!

Do you understand what these files contain?

The files requested are technical reports about how your system is works and do not relate to personal data, which you naturally wish to protect. You only need to leave a file in your OneDrive for the limited time necessary for the other party to retrieve the file.

Having requested thousands of reports in these forums over the last 3 years, I can only say that I have never encountered a complaint that an exchange of files has contributed to a breach of the users security and a loss of personal data. I am not an expert in computer security but breaches of security occur when a user allows direct access to their computer.  Access can be granted by the user knowingly allowing direct access or access being achieved by deception or trick though a camouflaged link in an incoming email or other communication.

If you look at other threads you will find many other users sharing files, notably by those seeking help with diagnosing the causes of blue of death crashes. Exchanging copies of files is an extremely practical way to aid and expedite the finding of a solution to the problem the user has. You no doubt are aware that these are moderated public forums. Abuse of whatever kind in these forums is rigorously dealt with and those seeking to abuse others are excluded from using the forum. However, I have never seen the type of abuse you fear reported.
