Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a compaq computer and for about the last week everytime I go to start it up it starts to do updates. When this is finished another message comes on saying that my computer won''t start. then start up repair comes on and says it wii scan my computer for problems and will automatically fix any it finds.When this is done the computer will finally start up but this whole process takes about half an hour.Then when I am ready to shut it down it does updates again before it will finally shut dow


Answers :

For right now, I would suggest going to windows updates and on the left hand side upper, choose settings. When in settings look to the bottom and click on the box that states to turn windows updates off. Then reboot the laptop and if it wants to go through a repair start, let it. your startup files have probably gotten corrupt from an incomplete update or too many updates tried to install at one time. I am finding more and more problems being created by windows update than ever before. If you want to turn updates back on, go back to it, but click on the button that states to notifiy you that downloads are available but you get to decide whether you want to download and install them.
