  11. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" For several years I've chosen a totally different procedure to ensure the functioning of my Windows 7 SP1, as follows: 1.- Deactivate any kind of updates until you are sure that you need one. Many updates may not be a need for you and even have collateral unwanted effects. 2 .- Use an external USB to run Windows 7 PE and Just Manager or Free Commander as file manager to save a copy of the whole operating system into a partition of an external HDD (just copy and paste) and another one of all your user files into a different one. When you introduce changes into your OS or into any of your folders you may format the corresponding partition and create a new copy, or simply update the modified folders or files by deleting the copied one and copy/paste the new one. In case of need you may run again Windows PE from the external USB and any of both file managers to rebuild any damaged or modified file or folder, or even format and restore the whole OS or all your folders in a few minutes. Fast and easy. I also use the same security procedure for Windows 10 with excellent results . HTH Cannie
