Hello everyone! (Hopefully) quick question. I"ve acquired an old laptop that is, while old, still in pretty good form, and am trying to install antivirus software program on it. Lapheight is running Windows 7 (version 6.1). When I download the antivirus software application, it errors out and also says that I have to install upday KB2999226 before the antivirus software program can be installed.

Ive had actually this lapoptimal on pretty much all day letting it capture up through updating pretty a lot whatever. It has actually gone via the update installer a number of times.

Sometimes Updating does not go according to arrangement.

If tright here were a large substantial number of Updays to be installed normally some of the previously ones would need to be set up first prior to any of the more recent ones.

If the Update was Huge i suggest carry out them in portions starting from the OLDER / EARLIER DATED ONES and also after that re-shave the right to to check out what else presents itself.

( Plainly speaking the more recent later Updays at times should watch the older ones before they deserve to install ).
