Here the wireless password cant be remembered. Every time I reboot I have to type it in again, and I have to join a network.

 

Control panel is blank / slow / doesnt show anything. This PC loads sometimes but can also be blank. Atm it's empty

 

Win7 is fine, both PC's with Win7 on them have no probs at all

My network is connected via cable, not WiFi, but I'm not seeing any of the other problems you mentioned.

Oh yer, thanks for reminding me. I will do a WSUS sync and see what turns up.

 

Ok, it is now downloading 3568.14MB for 145 updates.

 

I will let you know if I have any install issues.

Ok did 'Windows Update' in my test VM running Win 8.1.1.

Found and downloaded 14 updates. Been stuck on 'Preparing to Install' for 20 mins so far.

Doesn't normally take that long. I will leave it going and see what happens.

Awesome, still stuck on 'Preparing to Install' 90 mins later.

Will try figure out what's going on tomorrow.

 

EDIT: Rebooted the VM, updates installing now

 

EDIT 2: Updates installed ok. Control panel looks normal. Can't test wireless stuff, it's a VM.

Might have been something malicious causing the problems and noticing them after you updated was just a coincidence.

Thank goodness for backups, huh? 2 minutes short of 2 hours to get it done, at least between posts, even.

 

Cool you got it all worked out. :)

 

Had no issues here with the updates over wifi here.
