I tried to create a Hi Jack This log but error message stating that "the system denied write access to the Hosts file" and is unable to create a logfile.

It is usually not necessary to block updates in Windows Update, Microsoft's integrated updating tool for Windows operating systems.

Windows Update notifies the user of new updates by displaying a notification in the system tray, that is, if the update service is up and running.

We already talked about some "old generation" processors being caught in the crossfire before.

Windows users reported that PCs with AMD Carrizo processors were blocked from installing updates even though that should not have happened according to Microsoft.
