    Keeps telling me that a firewall is blocking the process. I have shut off the firewall and still cannot get the system to check for updates.

    Welcome to the forums Joreshan :)

    Do you have the full error message (inc. error code) that Windows gives you? It seems a little strange if it still happens when your firewall is disabled.

    What security software are you using on your PC?
