    Boot into Safe Mode, enter as the Administrator and use a Restore Point from
    System Restore to revert prior to the update. Then make sure you have no
    programs running in the background while you redownload the updates.

    Tried that and some other things, got it up and running by removing alot of
    preloaded junk that was running on start up and clogging things up. Updated
    and it seems to be working. Although my panda antivirus software seems to be
    slowing the computer down and internet protection level control is showing
    disabled and I can't seem to enable it.

    Thanks for the help

    You might want to give your system a thorough check with a different anti
    virus program (AVG and Avast! have free versions for home use, and they're
    all I use on my machines), and also give your system a run-through with some
    of the free programs available on MVP Jim Eshelman's web site:
    www.aumha.org/secure.htm . If you run into anything really strange on the
    Tablet, you can check with Jim's online security forum on the Aumha site.

    Another free one, I use... is www.free-av.com It's good but I dont run the
    AV Guard, they all (background watching) tend to slow down my machines. I
    tend to turn them off.
    The reason, as I understand it, why they slow down the machine (normally) is
    everytime you open a file (or a program opens a file) it will scan the file
    stopping the program from having access to it, and running the scan, then
    allowing the program to access it... and when programs use files that you
    don't know about, it will slow those programs down when they try to access
    the files they need. At least thats the best way I can explain it.
