Hi, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.
I am very sorry about your issues. Are you still able to use your Windows 7 computer despite the annoying update prompt? Or are you no longer able to use it because of the update cycle that won't finish?
Please let me know so that I can help you further.
Best regards,
Jess

Hi David,
Thank you for writing back with that information and I am very sorry about your issues with your Windows 7 computer. I believe there are other issues in the system, not just the updates, that caused the installation of the AV software to fail.
Can I remotely access your computer so that I can directly fix the installation issues that you are experiencing? When connected remotely, I can perform a cleanup operation to optimize your system and eliminate stacked errors that cause software to fail. I will then fix the updates issues as this could be caused by hardware or software incompatibility to checking the error log could be necessary.
Remote access is an optional additional service offer with a minimal one-time flat fee ($15) regardless of how long it will take me to fix the problem. We can resume any time without additional cost. It is safe as you will be watching your screen and we can chat right there, and it will be a faster mode of help.
Please let me know if you want this remote option.
Best regards,
Jess

Hi David,
