I've been fighting with my computer again. I noticed for the past week that every time I sign off at the end of the day, I get a message saying windows updates are being installed. That would be a wonderful thing, but it's EVERY SINGLE TIME I turn off my computer. Windows doesn't update that often.
I realized yesterday that my computer is constantly growling, all day long. You know, like my stomach growls when I'm hungry. And while it was growling, it was moving slower than usual. In otherwords, it was trying and failing to install updates.
So today I went to the Windows Update website and clicked to update. It did fine for awhile, showing the green progress bar installing parts one and two. When it was time for three, though, the green progress bar froze.
I uninstalled Avast antivirus; the tech who worked on this computer prefers it to AVG, but AVG is what I know. And who knows, maybe Avast was part of the problem. I also got rid of Spybot Search and Destroy, at least for now. It had a little lock thing showing on my taskbar, and I wonder if it has been blocking my installation of the updates. Welcome back, AVG.
Ah HA! While I've been typing this, I've had Windows Updates going. I do believe it's going to take, this time.
Yes! I'm updated!
