Specs: Windows 7 Professional, 2.80 gigahertz Intel Core i7 930
I have been having problems past few months with my HP Desktop. In the past I have had some malware problems. I got or thought I got it all out. It seems when I run malware removal programs like hitman pro it crashes. Other programs crash also. I still feel something is hidden. I have ran all sorts of malware scans. I figured it is time to just reformat and this week I am off so it's the best time. So I reinstall Windows 7. I am now first thing after drivers installing IE 11 it seems to be hanging and not installing. It shows installing required updates. I just want to install IE 11 nothing else is there a full version? I downloaded "IE11-Windows6.1-x64-en-us" it is 53.3 MB. Is there a version that has the updates already or is there a way to manually install the updates? It just seems to be stuck on installing required updates. Also this HP desktop I have a hard time finding drivers. HP website has them but not all like the chip set they do not even have that. I am going to see how it goes this time I will just see what this does. I let it go overnight and it never installed I had some message cannot remember the message. BTW After it failed this morning I started over reinstalled again. I hope to get this right. I am going to make a backup as soon as I get it to install. That way if I have to reinstall I can just run the restore from the backup. I use Acronis True Image.

IE 11 Installed. I am not ready to dock the ship just yet. Keep this out in the sea until I see if any more problems come on board.
I installed IE 11 in Audit mode. Then ran a backup with Acronis True Image.
As of right now Windows Update has been checking for updates for almost an hour. This reinstall was on an extra drive I have. The 1 TB was what I had the drive with the install with crashes ETC so I still have that. I may just give up and try again to fix. It seems the now install does not want to go well.

After 2 hours of Checking for Updates I gave up. I am going to put the 1 TB drive back in. Maybe soon I may try to get a new computer. Not Windows 10 it will be Windows 7.

"Maybe soon I may try to get a new computer.'
Doubt if there is any need.

Did you delete all the partitions?
W7 - Click on > Drive options (advanced) Then highlight each partition & hit > Delete.

Here are some examples of why you delete all partitions.

"After 2 hours of Checking for Updates I gave up"
That is how it is now, MS have put the W7 updates on their slowest server.

I use these.

Update pack - Simplix Pack to update Live Win7 System/ Integrate hotfixes into Win7 distribution
Latest version.

After installing Win7, you should run Windows Update & let it install all the critical updates & security fixes. Here's an explanation of why it runs forever & how to fix it:

If you don't want it to auto-update to Win10, use GWX Control Panel, standalone version:

I got the 1 TB drive back in. I was doing the fresh install on an extra drive I had. I did not want to mess with the install I have on this 1 TB. Maybe there is no virus hidden just not sure why hit man pro crashes I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. This desktop is a PITA to reinstall. A dell would be much easier to find drivers. I know how to delete partitions and why and all that. I just ran msert (Microsoft Security Scanner)
Oh and as far as moving updates to slow servers. M$ is going to find any way they can to rape people with their new OS.
