For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
thank you very much for your question. My name is***** and I will be assisting you today.
The problem is, that if you install a completely fresh Windows 7, there are over 1000 updates that it needs to download. However, Microsoft has recently turned off most Windows 7 update servers to use them for Windows 10 instead, since they are going to discontinue updates for Windows 7 anyway soon. What we can do in this case (just did that for another client 2 days ago), is to install a roll-up package that includes most of the updates till middle of this year. It is rather difficult to install, but will get your Windows 7 updated. Afterwards, Windows Update will find the remaining updates rather quick within a few minutes and you then have a fully patched Windows 7 in the end. If you wish, I can set this all up for you via a remote connection, by directly doing it on your computer. Please let me know if that would help you and if you are interested.
Thanks for your patience and best regards,
