Hi deemac57,

For Windows update issue refer to the link mentioned below:


For issue with Skype, uninstall the audio driver. Restart the system and re-install the latest audio driver.

Thanks & Regards

The symptoms are a bit mixed. Look at Windows Update and note down the update number for one of the smaller ones. See if it will update manually. If not then go here:

Try to update the same update as a file and Save it rather than running it. Double click the file to install it. If this process fails, tell us at what stage it goes wrong.

What I have in mind is determining whether or not this is a problem with automatic updates or something else.

EDIT: Added last line.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
