Updating Windows 7

Dear Computer Lady,

I can’t seem to get updates for Windows 7 for some reason.

I have auto update checked but no updates,I check look for update but it keeps search to no avail.

Is anybody else having difficulty as I am. Hoping for a resolution to my problem.

Thank you. John

Dear John,

You are not the only one having update problems with Windows 7. Even I am having dificulties.

If you are a fairly advanced windows user, you can try the WSUS Offline updater at: www.wsusoffline.net/

However, I have found that even with this tool, I still have to install several updates directly before the computer will resume automatic updates again.

If you are not an advanced user, your best course of action is to bring the computer to your local repair shop and have them do it for you.
