Windows 7 Update problem
Posted on 2012-03-14
Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 Home. The HD went bad. Replaced the HD and restored a Boot It image. However, had to use a W7 installation disk to apparently fix the MBR or something. Now everything seems to be working OK except that I cannot get Windows Updates. I've already run various virus and malware engines. Installed the latest BIOS from Toshiba and ran MS's Update component "Fixit". None of these will allow me to get updates. When attempting updates, I get a RED X in the box stating "cHECK FOR UPDATES FOR YOUR cOMPUTER" with a button "Check for updates" but of course it just returns to the Update box with the RED X when clicking on the button.
