    Windows 7 freezes, won't update, even after in-place reinstall

    I want to thank you for all your help. I finally got it straightened out. I manually loaded a few updates (KB3102810, KB3138612, and the SUR tool) but could not get WSUS offline to work at all. Then I turned my automatic updates on and changed the hour to check for them (found this tip on...

    Windows 7 freezes, won't update, even after in-place reinstall

    About 2 weeks ago I got a notice that there were new updates available for my Dell. I have it set to notify me but don't download any updates. I opened the updater and saw that there were over 40 updates and it stated that I hadn't installed any since April. I always install them when notified...
