windows 7 updates


When I use automatic update  after a short time my system becomes scrambled and I have to revert to my backed up system. Am I the only one or is this happening to anyone else? from Rabbit. 07:10:2010

Welcome to the forum,

Bit more information would be good, What do you mean scrambled? Do you mean Scrambled like an egg?

Re: windows 7 updates

Not sure what you mean by 'scrambled' either but I have recently had problems with Vista updates - see HERE.
Changed automatic updates to notify and select, downloaded one at a time until problem one was caught, then just hid it so that I would not inadvertently download it again.  Have left the laptop on the notify option.

That looks like a hardware problem such as bad memory.
I would run the Windows Memory Diagnostic for a start. -

I think a faulty hard drive is more likely.
