Update on Windows Update install issues

IMG_6273My laptop tried again and again to install the Windows update. Finally on the last attempt I spotted a link for more help on resolving the issue. It lead me to a Microsoft fixit program to help resolve the issue.
I installed it and ran it and by-gum within a short time my laptop was fixed and the update was installed.
~sigh of relief~
For my daily computing, I was careful and didn’t do anything that it would be a problem if my laptop lost it in a crash. I read the news sites and did a lot of pinning.

I made plans to blog yesterday morning. With visions of visiting and commenting dancing in my head, I happily turned on my laptop and immediately was met with a notification to install 18 updates…
~falls on the floor sobbing~
With trepidation I clicked the button to install the updates…
Waiting and waiting and then finally they all surprisingly installed without a hitch.
But again, I was careful not to do anything that would cause me problems if it was lost in a crash… Back to news reading and pinning

This morning there was no updates and my laptop seems to be running okay. So here I am blogging again… hopefully I’ll get to visit and comment and be a normal blogger without any issues nor arguments from my laptop…

Just one more thing… In my opinion, the Microsoft fixit programs, that Microsoft has come out with, are some of the most helpful little programs I’ve ever run for resolving issues. I have a couple installed on my laptop that I run when I need to resolve general issues. There’s oodles of them out there, if you can find one that is directly related to a problem you’re having, sometimes the Microsoftfixit fixes it in little of no time.
Here’s alink to the Microsoft Fix it Solution Center mrfixit
There’s alot of solutions but remember to Use them at your own discretion, they may or may-not resolve or help or work for everyone.

Here’s wishing you all a week free of pc issues.

Beyond ticked-off – laptop issues

Windows is being hateful this morning. It has my laptop bogged down trying to install a friggin’ update. It’s tried over a half dozen times. I have to restart my laptop every time. I’m so far beyond ticked-off I want to stomp my laptop to pieces.

I’ve looked for solutions and resolutions online and nothing helps. I’ve tried fixes, changed settings and still it won’t install.
The thing that makes me the maddest is the fact that I have no choice in this… I can’t even block the danged thing… it keeps downloading and bogging down my laptop and trying to install… restarts… then the whole cycle starts again…laptopbash

I’m typing this in Notepad I’m going to cut and paste in in a blog entry. I can’t do much of anything online for very long before my browser crashes and my laptop locks up.

It’s iffy if I can even post this. I’m going to try though…
I tried to make a post with my Kindle, but I don’t have the patience for it.
I’m going to blog as much as I can for as long as it will let me.
So if I don’t visit everyone today, know that it’s Windows fault.

I’ll be back when I can…

I hope your week is an awesome one.graphics-rainbow-260262
