Reverted back to W7 from W10 on grandsons Laptop using the Samsung install disk but cannot get it to install updates. Disc came with SP1 on it and about 4 years old if that makes any difference,

Windows updates just shows the updating and does nothing.

Apart from Downloading IE11 from the Microsoft sight nothing else updates. laptop is sluggish and struggles to cope with little things.

tried one of the Microsoft fix its which repaired 3 things but still will not download updates.

probably something simple any ideas welcome.

No I did not have to use safe mode ?? As a matter of interest I had no problem with W7 32Bit but of coarse it can't see above 3GB of ram.
