Re: Windows update doesn't work

Yes me too, one of the biggest issues with windows seems to be on a machine which is not always on the internet, ie has no network or dongle or whatever.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I find that since a lot of updates like anti virus and monthly updates happen in the background one can get into a position where the machine resets for no apparent reason randomly. The only fix I've found for this was to take it to a permanent location with a connection and let it sort itself out, can take a day or so for it to stabilise. In the old days of XP it was relatively easy to stop everything trying to update itslef, but since more recent versions I've noticed that this is not so easy at all, and with third party programs things get a whole lot worse.
Unfortunately due to the nature of where the machine is used, the internet cannot be allowed to do as it likes as its charged by the gig, and its a charity paying the bills!
Nobody seems to have thought about this problem very much.

Probably not, I do wander if some of this stuff is just windows saying it can't, however it may try to find a solution anyway windows usually can do this on its own.
