Another computer crisis with Microsoft Windows operating system. This time an individual installed a Microsoft Windows 7 updated, that wreaked havoc. Here is the original initial question quoted verbatim below.
The latest windows update has created problems with my computer.
This individual owned an Acer Aspire laptop. However, they did NOT know the operating system they were using. How is this possible in this day and age?
Here is a tip, always find out what operating system you are using. You should always not remain ignorant and know what operating system you have installed. I found out that they had Microsoft Windows 7 installed.
They had tried to remove this latest Windows 7 update. However, they received an error when attempting to remove it. Whenever a Microsoft Windows 7 update fucks up your computer, you can try to perform a system restore.
Try to remember when this problem first started to occur. You want to pick a date back to before you had this problem. Click “Start”, then choose “All Programs”. Select “Accessories”.
Choose “System Tools”. Finally, select “System Restore”. A System properties window will open up.
You should be in the System protection tab of that window. Click on System Restore.
Another System Restore window will open up. Click on Next. In the next window you will be able to select your restore point. Also, you can place a check box in the Show more restore points.
What you want to choose here is a date and time before you were having your current problem. Choose a restore point back to before you were having your current computer problem(s). Now you click Next.
In order to begin system restore, you select Finish. Your computer will have to reboot in order to restore it back to the restore point that you picked. Never interrupt a Microsoft Windows 7 system restore once you click finish.
Do NOT become inpatient and press ctrl alt delete.This individual was able to fix their Microsoft Windows 7 update problem, by performing a system restore. These instructions were written for Microsoft Windows 7 operating system.
You can use this troubleshooting as a basis for troubleshooting other Microsoft Windows operating systems. However, the instructions will NOT be the exact same. When in doubt, try to perform a Microsoft Windows system restore.
You will not lose your personal data when performing a system restore. However, any programs installed after the restore point will become removed.
