    Lacking Updates - Rebuilt Computer


    Recently I re-did/re-installed the O/S on my laptop. Being that it is an HP ENVY, they seem to lock it down quite a bit when trying to do a fresh install, so it basically is automatic with retrieving my key and what not.

    Anyhow, I wanted to ensure that everything seemed proper via this thread: BSOD / DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION when Logging In

    and for the most part usasma said it looked okay. The drivers part has me somewhat worried, but I have done an update on the 3D Guard driver since then (basically the only one I didn't install...go figure).

    He did say however that it seems that I'm lacking quite a bit of updates, and many others have failed? He mentioned that it looks like that I have 51 installed, which is much lower than normal. I've checked for updates multiple times but it returns with nothing or no new updates. I'm hoping this is normal...

    Also, how can I go bout fixed any of the failed updates that I've had?

    I'll attach the same file as I gave to him, not sure if that will help.

Quickly sift updates without Check For Updates?
Is there a good way to sift through updates without going the "check for updates" route? I'm hoping for a method to find updates that actually effect system performance or robustness, rather than security updates. I mean, other than reading the descriptions manually. It would be nice if there...

Computer will not reboot after windows updates.
I'm fairly tech savvy but this problem is bugging me. Anytime windows updates, it's supposed to turn off, then turn back on to finish. Well anytime it turns off, it won't turn back on. The last time it did this, it corrupted the BCD. The computer shuts down ok via the menu, and will start...
