    I have figured out a way to get it off that screen by getting to the blue screen that has the option to refresh my computer. But i would like for this to stop happening. Whyis it not updating properly? How can I fix this?

    I am not sure. I just bought it from the pawn shop. I had to get it while I am dealing with hp fixing my other computer. I have only had the one I posted about since Satuday. If there is a way to check I can. It is working for now because I refreshed it. But I dont want it to do the same thing in a couple days.

    I clicked for check updates. It acted like it was checking. Now it disappeared. I went back. It says
    You are set to automatically install updates.
    No updates available.
    Most recent check for updates: never
    Updates were installed: never
    You receive updates: for windows only.
