Hi ,

My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

The best option will be to use a screen connect remote session so that I can connect to your computer directly and do this for you.

I will send you the info.

I want to know how to correct this issue so I don't have it again. Even with Microsoft Security and Malware Bytes on my pc, since I live on the road using unsecured wifi I have found it easier to just reload from scratch now and then to clear issues.

Are you there?

  • Some updates can’t be installed if you’re using a metered Internet connection.
  • If you’re connected the Internet and updates aren’t installed automatically, wait a few minutes and then try to install the updates manually.
  • Use the Windows Update Troubleshooter to try to fix the problem.

I have tried to install updates from different locations and also have had a certified computer expert try, IT DOESN'T WORK, TELL ME HOW TO FIX IT SINCE IT USED TO WORK!

the only meters I have are on my gas, water, and electric. Don't treat me like an idiot.
