Why does my computer run so slow when installing updates? I run windows 7> and why can't these updates be installed when computer is not in use?
If you are experiencing this type of problem with updates, you need to take control.
Open Windows Update.
On the left side menu, select Change Settings.
Under Important Updates, select the Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them option.
With this option set, you will be notified when new updates are available and you can pick which updates you wish to download and install when you are ready.
If you wish to not be notified of a particular update again, when you see that update on the list, simply right click the update and select the Hide Update option.
Also, you can take a shortcut and install the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 from Windows Update. This service pack contains hundreds of previous updates.
