I am always having problems if I allow Microsoft Automatic updates. My PC goes into an endless boot loop if I do these updates. I should have learnt by now. I have to re-install Windows each time I do this. I can`t even get into safe mode to do a system restore. The last update I did today I looked at all the update files first (not that it meant much to me )before I installed them. Any suggestions please or should I just turn off automatic updates permanently. I thought they were supposed to be safe.
Something is obviously wrong with your windows installation, I would suggest a full virus and adware/malware scan. If that does not "cure" your problems I would suggest a full reinstall. I have to admit it is a painful option but, in the long run, it is well worth it.
Since my last post I have found that my version of Windows XP pro was not genuine. I purchased a new license key from Microsoft but it would not let me install as there was a file missing. A couple of weeks later I received the new Windows CD from Microsoft but it would not let me update or repair as certain files were missing. As a last resort I did a clean install and since then I have had no problems. Microsoft updates install with no problems. The cost of the new key and CD was £92, a lot less than a retail version of Windows XP Pro.
