to many updates

pavilion aw4313
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

an update caused me to have to take my desktop HP Pavilion aw4313 back to factory settings. Now I keep having to do a shut down for updates to many updates. First run was 100 updates, the second run was 80 updates, and now the third run is 93 updates. All keep hitting back to back as fast as the updates are done and I restart the computer their are more updates. I am to the point of mashing ever HP product I have and only buying Dell products.

The same thing will happen with a Dell, Lenovo, or any Retail or OEM Windows 7 SP1 installation disc or USB stick.


It is the amount of Windows 7 updates Microsoft has released since the installation media was created.


One way to reduce the amount of updates needed is to install The Microsoft July 2016 update rollup.

Hello hillbillie 414: my collegue Professor Grzwacz is exactly right the samething happened to me after I made a error which crashed my initial upgrade to Win 10  I had to reinstall Windows 7 because I had the network connection on Win 7 made so many updates that I couldn't proceed my poor Pavilion 410y was overwhelmed, discombobulated as well as swamped by all the updating that it took until 3am the next morning before it was over & I thought I was going to end up on "The Walking Dead" as one of the Haitian Voodoo zombies  I was that exhausted & tired

so what I did was pull the cable & reinstalled Windows 7 then 10 after that

the ultimate problem is that Windows 7 is so geriatric that Microsoft has to continually update it that's why MS pulls the plug on these archaic, antidiluvian antiques sooner or later

hope this tragic tale of tragedy enlightens as well as behoove you
