  • Windows automatic updates to doubt?

    In windows 7, in windows updates, when we select "install updates automatically (recommended)" and then set the time when to install updates, to just install the updates then (downloads at any time seized in accordance with his will) or download them first at that time and then to install it?
    As my use of the internet is free from 02:00 to 08:00 and I want that windows should download the updates and install them automatically at 03:00 (it would cost my internet charges). If I put out there like "every day at 03:00" time, it will download at that time (which I want it to be), or simply install at the time (I don't want to use my day consumption for the updates of windows... I want to use the free part!).

    p.s. it restarts the computer automatically after installing updates (I don't want) or to delay the recovery until I wake up in the morning and do it myself (I want it)?

    If it does it automatically, is it possible to stop him?

    When the updates are downloaded?

    Updates are downloaded behind the scenes when you are online. They do not interfere with other downloads. If you disconnect from the Internet before an update is fully downloaded, the download process will continue the next time you're online.

    When the updates are installed?

    It depends on the automatic update option you choose. If you choose the recommended option, updates are installed at 3:00 or on a schedule you choose. If you turn off your computer before the scheduled time, you can install updates before shutting down. If your computer is in a State of economy of energy (sleep or Hibernate) during a scheduled update, and if your computer is connected to a power source, Windows will wake your computer long enough to install new updates. If your computer is running on battery, however, Windows will not install updates. Windows will try to install them instead at the next scheduled installation.

    Through the above information, it seems that Windows Update is download the updates when the system is online and install them during the scheduled installation.
    Updates need to reboot the system to replace files in use will be to reboot the system without any user interaction.

    As far as I know, when WU is set to automatic, there is no way to restrict the time when the system will download the updates.
    If the edition of Windows 7 is the ultimate edition, professional or business, one can configure the options of restart and guests reboots via Group Policy. In addition

    PowerShell cmdlets in Windows 7 introduces a set of 25 new cmdlets, which allow administrators to manage and automate Windows PowerShell through Group Policy. With these cmdlets, a COMPUTER administrator can backup, restore, report on and configure (through registry settings) Group Policy objects. This feature is added during the installation of the GPMC.

    PowerShell cmdlets also applies to editions listed above of Windows 7.

    You can contact Dell and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks and to reinstall the operating system.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    If this method has not been destroyed by the last re - install, and if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery Partition on the hard drive to reinstall Vista on how you purchased your computer.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    With a Dell, you press F8 at startup and follow the instructions

    The methods above resettlement generally do not require allows you to provide a product key during Installation, the recovery process uses the Installation product key factory to activate automatically during the resettlement process.

    Hello Bigbrotherbrian,

    I think that thie problem is maybe due to one of the following reasons:

    1. You are not logged as administrator (or equivalent)

    2. Strategy of automatic updates is enabled

    3. Automatic updates (and Windows Update) access is blocked by group policy

    To solve problems, just follow the steps below:

    To do automatic updates options configurable by the user (only for stand-alone systems), remove restrictions 2 & 3 above.

    • Click Start, run and type REGEDIT to . EXE

    • Go to this location:


    • In the right pane, delete the two values AUOptions and NoAutoUpdate

    • Go to this location:


    • In the right pane, delete the value DisableWindowsUpdateAccess.

    Hope that this resolution should solve your problem.

  • Safety poster Windows automatic updates is turned off, but they are on

    original title; Problems with automatic updates. Help, please.

    Security alerts Windows keeps advising me that I have automatic updates turned off even if I turned them on in the system menu. Security Center said, however, that they are turned off and fails to address the problem. I tried to run windows repair, but it has encountered an unexpected error and could not continue. I'm afraid that I have some types of malware on my computer and there is a security risk.

    Hi, Thatreallyawesomeguylololol,

    Start in safe mode with network.  Turn off the system restore to ensure that no malware hides in the restore points.

    Download the tool from Microsoft.  Run a full scan.

    Once you have determined, there is no malware or malicious software has been quarantined or deleted from your system, run the System File Checker.

    Right-click on the command prompt window and select run as administrator

    Type the following command:


    Press enter

    Note: There is a space between SFC and / scannow

    Press start > run

    Type %windir%\Logs\CBS

    Press Ok

    Search for can't fix... and note files SFC is unable to repair (if applicable)

    Right-click on command prompt and select run as administrator

    Type the following command:

    CHKDSK /F /R

    Press enter

    You will receive a message about the disk must be locked.  When asked if you want to scan on reboot, press on Y and press enter

    Restart the computer

    The scan takes a few minutes and once completed, once the computer restarts, open the event viewer > Windows > application log. Look for Winninet to see the results of the analysis.

    You can try to restore Windows back to a previous working state, and then disabling the updates so that it works this way.

    Step 1: To restore Windows to a previous state (before defective updates): (open the link and follow the instructions).

    Step 2: To disable the automatic updates (so the update defective will not be reinstalled): (in step 3, select 'Off').

    WARNING: It is not recommended and sometimes even dangerous to disable automatic updates, because they improve the security and reliability of Windows. If the procedures above solves your problem, this means that an update was the likely cause.

    Please report back with your results. Then we can reactivate the automatic updates, but block the update that causes this problem.
