    Updates always fails


    I have just bought a new ASUS Transformer TX300 notebook on last Friday. I was very irritated about
    the poor performance of this i7 CPU notebook. The machine runned very lag and I have
    to wait even I just type something. (But at the very beginning when I tested the machine
    in the shop every thing was fine) In the Task Manager, there is always the Windows
    Module Installer Worker which is always utilizing CPU, Memory and Disk. Windows
    update ALWAYS FAIL. Since the day of purchase, virtually none updates were installed. Every time I check
    for updates, there are lots of items but when I clicked install updates, it
    starts downloading and after half an hour the download progress was still 0%. And
    sometimes I could choose to update and restart. However, when I get into the screen
    about Windows Updates recently installed updates, all items failed to install. I tried System recovery last night. And the problem is still there. What has improved is that, gladly, the machine runs much faster tonight, commensurating what should an i7 machine performs.
    Attached please have some screenshots which were taken to signify the seriousness of the issue and my heart to have this problem fixed asp so that my ssd in the new notebook won't get hurt...

    Hello,

    Are you able to install any of the updates individually?

    Cheers,

    Hey,

    Would it be possible to show me a screenshot of what your issue is accessing your desktop?

    You may need to enable:
    File and Printer Sharing on Network - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    a bit of information around sharing and printing:

    Sharing files and printers with different versions of Windows - Microsoft Windows Help

    Sharing a printer - Microsoft Windows Help
    Although from your post it is very hard for me to work out exactly what your error is.

    if you could explain more granular to me and also a screenshot or two would be great.

    Cheers,
    Harry
