Hi Lisa, 

 

We will review the situation once you have posted the Windows Repair log. 

 

Please provide an update on the status of your computer once Windows Repair has been run.

Hi Lisa,
 
Please exit out of the programme if you haven't already done so. Repeat the instructions for Windows Repair one more time. Ensure you right-click the file and select Run as administrator. This is important!

 

If the programme hangs again, exit out and let me know. If the programme successfully completes, please attempt Windows Update and post the log generated.
 
Hold back on proceeding with the other instructions in my last post if you find Windows Updates still does not work.

After it rebooted I have lost all connection to my wireless Internet It states there is a problem with the drivers.
