Windows update not updating
A moderator installed Linux on an old XP computer and it runs well.I have Ubuntu dual booting on an old XP computer that's 13 years old and it runs fairly well.Other advice about getting Windows Update to work is what I am interested, but I plan to restart computer again and turn the Windows Update Service back ON... I will turn the update service back ON and change settings to "Check but let me choose...". A web/internet search gave a listing: a visit to that webpage was also mentioned at that page this address: I opened Internet Explorer version 9, put in that "windowsupdate..." address.A very few seconds later, a Windows Update window appeared with a message, "Windows is up to date; there are no updates available for your computer", and showing last installed updates on 3/7/2016. A couple hours later, Windows informed that new updates were available, Sixteen of them; so I unchecked all but just one of them.My guess, something is wrong at the other end, not at mine.
In the table below, select the download link for your device.CHECKING On 3/15/2016: Background Intelligence Transfer Service shown as Started.Window Update shown as Started - Still waiting for the Windows Update notification about available updates - have not started it manually through Control Panel Edited by cafejose, 15 March 2016 - PM.Windows Update Service, right-click and choose Stop, but machine tells me "could not stop the service" or something like that. set to "never check for updates", I try running Windows Update manually.
I may try to look at and report the exact message there.... Now, went through Windows Update and changed settings to Never Check for Updates. Now, I went to services msc again and rightclicked on Windows Update chose Stop, and this turned OFF the service in that list. After 20 minutes, still find "Checking for updates..." and no change from this.
You do not need to install them to see which you prefer. For creating a USB flash drive use Rufus and the iso file.
