1)Go to control panel 2)Click Security Settings 3)Then turn on your Automatic updates. If this dont solve ur problem then go for this: 1) remove all the temporary files from pc. By going to Start->Run->%Temp% delete all files. Then remove the software by searching its name in 'regedit' and then resintall it. to go 'regedit': Start->Run->regedit

Disable your firewall and than try to run the updates. McAfee is bad for this.

    I've noticed lately that on some computers when Service Pack 2 is trying to download thru automatic updates it stays at 0%. What I have found that microsoft needs another validation. Go to microsofts website. Click on Mocosoft updates there. Then follow the steps to let microsofts website update it should trigger off the validation file. Then it will begin to download the service pack. Just be patient it will stay at 0% until you agree on some terms from a popup box. If this does not work and SP2 is what you need downloaded. At microsofts website you can request to download SP2. Type SP2 in the search box on their website. If it is not SP2 that you need still let microsoft's website detect what you need.

    Hope this help you out...

Update your Adobe flash player software to the latest version:

If that doesn't fix it you might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below..

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira.

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

Win 7 64 bit freeze when starting XiMeta's NDAS NetDisk. I'm using newest version 3.72 from Ximeta website.

I have the same problem. I don't have the right solution but I discovered a workaround.
The problem occurs everytime when I install a windows 7 update.
My work around:
  1. When Windows determines an update I disable the NDAS service with msconfig
  2. The update is installed without the NDAS service operational.
  3. After update I enable the NDAS service with msconfig
  4. I restart my computer. Then it freezes.
  5. After a hard reset, the computer restarts in Safe modus. I restart my computer and my computer works, till the next windows 7 update. Then I start again van 1.
Very suboptimal, but it works.

I have an acer laptop with window vista and my sims game keeps freezing everytime i click on a family to play and everytime i try to creat a new person it keeps freezing. What can i do?

I would see if there is an updated driver for your video card; check the driver version and date on the Acer Support Website. And there is a possible glitch in the game and there might be a update for it as well. Here are a few patches I found for the Sims 2 game...
