MS has stopped support for Windows 7 updates?

I tried to get Windows 7 to download and apply updates after reloading my laptop from scratch. If I load MS System Center before SP1, System Center hog all the resources and the laptop has no effect.

If I load SP1 right after I installed Windows 7, SP1 takes 8 hours, with TrustedInstaller taking all of the resources and the SPINST barely get all resources, even if the updates are disabled. A control is completed, for updates took two days until now and still nothing. I have an instance of SVCHOST that takes between 1.5 GB 2.5 GB, as it intentionally uses the resources to prevent updates of race.

Last year, I successfully rebooted Win7 on more than 50 laptops, I support computers at a local college, so this is not something new for me. I also have been loading OS on the midrange and personal computers, including Windows, Linux and Mac, for 20 years.

If this is the way for Microsoft to force updates to Win10 by closing the updates for Win7, I will seek to Linux or Mac.

Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1520 with a Dual Core 2 GHz processor, 4 GB of RAM and a 500 GB HARD drive. Been running Win7 on it very well for a few years, reloaded just because the HARD drive failed.

I also tried various patches KB as suggested by other posts of loading, but it does the same thing, just using all resources while doing nothing.


The value of the automatic updates to "never check updates" and then restart Windows. Then, install KB3020369 and KB3172605.

Best regards, VZ

  • Microsoft has stopped support for Windows 7 Media Center's Electronic Programming Guide?

    I've been using the Windows 7 Media Center to watch and record local televisions more of one year.  Now, my guide-schedule is not download new data.  I tried several times to update manually the programming data.  The EPG shows the update succeeded, but no new data is displayed.  Microsoft stopped providing data to guide programming?  If Microsoft still provides programming data, what can I do to fix the problem?  PS: I have similar problems on a second computer.

    After re - run the TV Setup at least 100 times, it * finally * downloaded and updated to the source of Rovi.

    Keep trying, it will work eventually.  Try to run the TV setup during off-peak hours, such as early in the morning.

  • If I leave the IE8 on Windows XP Mode, but never use it, is there a way I can be hacked by him once Microsoft stops support for Windows XP?

    Original title: Windows XP in virtual mode

    I have Windows 7.1 with Windows XP in virtual mode so that I can use older products, not supported by 7.1.  In virtual XP mode, there is an Internet Explorer 8.  I understand that after Microsoft eliminates support for XP that can cause future security issues.  I run the latest version of Internet Explorer on my Windows 7.1.  If I leave the IE8 on the virtual XP mode but never use it, is there a way I can be hacked through it?  Should I remove the IE8 completely of the virtual Windows XP?

    If you never use IE (any version), it cannot be 'hacked '.

    If you wanted to be doubly secured, you can prevent accidental use by uninstalling...

    • Open the Control Panel - Add or remove programs
    • Remove IE8 (and IE7 if necessary) - click to highlight, then click on remove
    • Click Add/Remove Windows components
    • Uncheck the box Internet Explorer and click Next

    original title: problem with Skype

    I have been using Skype on my laptop for 12 months with no problems, all of a sudden, I get a message that Skype has stopped working and windows is looking for a solution.  I checked my firewall, windows updates and downloaded Direct X, as suggested by Skype. I've uninstalled Skype and downloaded again to make sure that the version lasted. IHAVE had also my whole system recharged but it did not work. I am at a loss to know what to do next. Someone at - it ideas


    It is a possibility that a third-party application is causing the conflict with Skype. We can perform the clean boot troubleshooting and check which program is causing the conflict.

  • Support for Windows 10 in Qosmio X 70 - has


    I have a X 70-a, and according to the plan of Toshiba support, full support for Windows 10 only will be available January 31, 2016 ('coz that's what you get when you pay 1500-2000 euros for a cell phone, right?)

    Any who tried to win 10 on a similar laptop? Personally, I don't see what is the hold up and do not understand why they need half a year to offer support because most of the drivers Windows 8.1 should be available (assuming that they were well written in the first place).

    "That's what I get for a laptop of 1,500 euros" is exactly what I had in mind when searching for this Web site in order to get my windows 10 drivers only to find out that I am not on the priority of Toshiba.

    Keep the windows 10 update has an option to restore your old windows for a month (available in recovery at startup menu), I took the plunge by installing Windows on my 770 - 13F X 10.

    Here are the problems I encountered (I guess I'll find out later):

    -Windows installed a bad driver for the wifi adapter (Qualcomm Atheros) that makes the BSOD on startup. I manually installed a Windows 8.1 driver found on a non official ( in safe mode, with a second PC and a USB key.
    Win 10 then start over, but I can not activate wifi, both front panel and fn + F8 key for wifi doesn't seem to work. If anyone has a solution or just a hint...

    -The main Win 10 Search bar doesn't seem to be functional. It's weird and annoying.

I analyze the documents on there all the time and it just stopped working gives me an error message indicating "a problem prevented the document under analysis. Please try again, or to correct this information, see Help and Support or the documentation that came with the scanner. "However, the problem is not the scanner, because it works with a colleague's computer, and the scanner does not work with mine either. It is a problem with the Windows fax and scan. We have tried several things and nothing works. Help, please!

    Hi KristinVeltema,

    To resolve this problem, you must download and install windows vista service pack 2 on the computer.

    Client to make VoIP calls

    I recently started having problems, make VoIP calls from my computer.  I use VoIP Busters (and using it for a few years without any problems).  Evertime I try to call the destination phone rings a couple of times and then stop.  The next thing that happens is an error message that says: "Client for VoIP calls has stopped working.  Windows is checking for a solution to the problem.  It is followed by another screen that says: "a problem caused blocking the program working properly."  Windows will close the program and inform you is a solution available.

    I finally had to resort to the re-installation of Windows.  This solves the problem.  But don't forget to back up your computer and email address / addresses before you do.

    I got a message from HP support updating Windows 10 for my printer.  When I completed the update, screen says that it has failed.  Update was for Windows 8.  I followed troubleshooting without result.  Printer for Windows 10 update is available?

    Contacted HP support line.  Apparently, even if my computer is new, he had a lot of viruses on it, causing it to be lazy, etc.  I paid a tax, the computer cleaned by HP online.  Computer works fine now.  I went back to 8.1 for Microsoft.  He suggested that I wait a few months than 10 has been out a while before trying again 10.  Focus on the upgrade of printer to 10 at the time.
