I have windows 7 home premium sp1 32 bit.
I'm set to install updates automatically, checking daily.
I've looked at my update history and find I do have successful updates recently (some several times) though the "most recent check" was 6/26/12 according to windows update.
I've not added or subtracted anything new & aside from the worry I'm not having any new or different troubles.
My antivirus is AVG and I'm having no trouble there. I've never had norton and don't now, I checked. None of this is new either.
I've tried method 1 below, method 2 is (apparently?) not needed as I've got sp1 already which is the most recent according to the link there and method 3 says " windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation".
I don't own a windows 7DVD as it was installed when I received my laptop. Method 4 is an "in-place upgrade" which apparently requires one.
PLEASE HELP ME!
- Download and run the System Update Readiness tool. This tool runs a one-time scan for inconsistencies that may prevent future problems with installing updates or service packs. To download and run the System Update Readiness tool (Checksur.exe), visit What
is the System Update Readiness Tool?
- Install the updates again.
If you have not installed the latest service pack for your version of Windows, visit the Service Pack Center to download and install it.
- Click the following link:
- Click the service pack download link for your version of Windows.
- Follow the instructions to download and install the latest service pack.
- Restart your computer.
- Try to install the updates again.
If you still cannot install updates or turn on Windows features, go to Method 3.
To run the System File Checker, follow these steps:
- Click Start, type cmd in the Start Search box (Windows Vista) or the Search programs and files box (Windows 7), and then press Enter.
- Right-click cmd.exe, and then click Run as administrator. Click Continue if you are the administrator or type the administrator password, and then click Continue.
- In the command box window, type Sfc /scannow, and then press Enter. Note that there is a space before the forward slash in this command.
After the scan is complete, try to install the updates again. If you still can't install the updates or turn on Windows features, go to Method 4.
